someone's breaking my machines
fun with my machines at home in the last days:
  • on the laptop my network interfaces got renamed from eth0 to eth1 & from ath0 to wlan0. messing with /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules helped. this seems to be #521521.
  • strange sound phenomenons on my desktop. turns out that (1) centerim's new sounds are nice but very quiet & (2) the audible bell in xterm is broken; the latter is #520405. fixed by quickly creating a local 243-0.1 package.
  • on my laptop the function keys don't work via acpi any more. turns out that CONFIG_ACPI_PROC_EVENT is finally turned off in debian's 2.6.29 kernel, & I found no documentation on how to make the keys work again with hal/evdev/whatnot. this is #521279, & right now I'm building a kernel with CONFIG_ACPI_PROC_EVENT enabled.
sometimes running unstable can be a bit time-consuming ...
