A “Thank You” to VMware folks

Gentoo/FreeBSD logo by Marius Morawski

I really want to thanks the VMware guys for their vmware-server… today the beta2 was released, and tonight I was having a few issues with vmware-server itself, so I decided to update it and see…

I was about to curse for a while, as it was really giving me hard times with slowness, but then I seen it had somehow started also another virtual machine I didn’t need. I started the Gentoo/FreeBSD 6.0 VM and…. magic! the “negative runtime” warnings that were coming up during the boot phase are now gone! Great! Thanks VMware.

Anyway, the stage is now on my home on, waiting for one of the mirrors’ admins to pick it up and put it on mirrors.
Right now I”m testing Emanuele’s patch to build freebsd-lib with newer binutils, I hope vapier will merge my patch into binutils for tomorrow, that would really help.

Anyway, now it’s 2:27 and I really need to sleep as last night I haven’t sleep at all (and slept only during the afternoon, 11-16).

It’s fortunate that I can conciliate the work on Gentoo/FreeBSD with my actual job, if I were to have a way more committing job, I would have to drop most of G/FBSD maintenance, and that would be bad at the current status 🙁
