Frustrated Enough to Maybe Contribute
09 December 2005
I have a few severe irritations with the state of my computer right now:
- swsusp still causes occassional lockups on my ThinkPad R40. I've already rebuilt 18.104.22.168 8 times trying to find the configuration that causes the problem.
- Rhythmbox interacts poorly with esound and causes Rhythmbox to become unresponsive.
- Rhythmbox has a good music library interface, but I want an option to show the file name, so I can differentiate podcasts and ripped streams that don't embed that info into their metadata.
- Automount on my notebook refuses to expire the NFS mounts it used to do backups overnight. The server does it just fine.
I'm frustrated enough with these things that I may soon be motivated to dig in, focus, and try to debug and fix them myself. Then I can contribute the patches back to the projects or at least document my configuration problems and how I fixed it.
