Numerous places are running stories about the "death of Clippy". Say what you want about the paperclip, but you shoulda seen the faces of my lusers when I switched it to something else, like the ball, or Einstein. All of a sudden you'd have sworn these people were toddlers getting a lollipop.

I got Samba working on my OpenBSD box, and have a drive mapped. I am utterly amazed.

Remember that new cable modem I got a couple weeks ago? I just d/l'ed an episode of My Name Is Earl, 180 *megs*, in five fucking minutes. Friday night I d/l'ed the dvd iso of the latest Windows Vista release, 2.5 gigabytes in under two hours. And here I thought all those "omgz dudez!!! we're increasing your speed!!!1!1!!!!" commercials were full of shit.

And btw, if any of you have played this game, I'm basically stuck at this point, so a brief spoiler as to wtf I'm supposed to do would be appreciated.

Is there a point to an mp3 program not supporting mp3s? I'm talking about xmms, of course, on Redhat. And I'm lookin' at you too OpenBSD.

All I wanted to do was compile the latest beta of Gaim. Damn, no ssl libraries.

Hey, this is CentOS! It's like RedHat! I'll give the RPM a shot! Damn, it wants pspell. Ok, find rpm for pspell. Gosh, that was easy. Well shit, pspell wants aspell. Find rpm for aspell. Not that hard. Ok. Well shit sherriff, aspell tells me a later version is installed![1]

Ok. I'm betting the problem is, knowing DeadRat, the dev headers aren't installed. By this point, I could give two shits and reboot into Windows.

Edit: Of course none of the devel stuff was installed. Finding that necessitated a trip to the install cd, and the website for updated RPMs (that wouldn't have been installed even if I had decided to throw in the kitchen sink [livejournal.com profile] pdx6... :-P). Still no joy, until I dug through config.log and noticed "libgcrypt not found".

I'm gonna go have a stroke now.

[1] Most of my dealings with RPMs end this way.

Remind me next time there's an OpenBSD release that doing "pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/*" really does remove everything, including the shells I use. Oops.

Oh, and failing that, don't let me fuck around trying to edit passwd (without vi) and just tell my dumbass you can pkg_add from single user.

I sooooo want to do this.

Also, installed Ubuntu on vmware. Isn't it cuuuuuuuuute? *makes little drum noise*

Edit: No gcc, no autoconf, none of that. Not cute.
