Interesting weekend filled with me attempting to be a hobbyinst plumber in my kitchen. Finally managed to unclog the kitchen sink, unfortunatly the water flows a little to well now so I need to buy some silicon tommorow to seal up a few spots again :)

I also got Never Winter Nights running under Linux. The Bioware guys had been cool and put up a complete tarball of the whole game, so no fidgeting with the windows CD and merging patches with Wine. Just download the whole thing and enter inn the cd-rom key. Unfortunatly it seems they Linux version still suffers from some stability issues. I am running it with a NVIDIA card using the official NVIDIA drivers which I guess must be a rather mainstream setup, but it still crash for me with a frequency of once every 1-2 hours. To bad, cause the game works like a charm under Linux apart from that.

Also started working on redoing the GStreamer SPEC file. We are moving to make our core plugins package include everything the gst-plugins shipped with redhat includes which will make things more intuitive for users who upgrade from those.

It also seems we might have found someone interested with helping us doing Midi in GStreamer. He is working on a really cool app called amsynth that uses GTKMM already. I hope it works out cause it would close one of the few remaining holes in our featureset.
