Of course the rumor I mentioned on this blog was just a bunch of hot air. Nothing. Serves me right for airing it.
I was extremely busy during these days, overseeing the smooth transition of both my home and office systems to Slackware 11. As I reported before, there were some issues and certain things went haywire while transitioning sombragris, my home system. After learning some things that way, and armed with that knowledge, I set myself up for upgrading goyeneche, my office system.
The upgrade went well. I took special care on applying some extra steps to avoid trouble, and everything was smooth and great. At the end, I finished not only with a Slack 11 upgrade; I also upgraded KDE to 3.5.5, and OpenOffice.org to 2.0.4. The system is running surprisingly smooth, considering that is just a 466 MHz Celeron with a meager 128 Mb RAM.
On an entirely different matter, please pray for me. I may become “collateral damage” of a very serious situation. I’ll try to explain more later.
