Getting the wxWindows packages for Debian working seems not to be as easy as it should be. I am not sure if it is because of the new compiler version or not, but the compile dies quite quickly. In addition, I had to use the 2.2 packages, as 2.4 has a file missing. In the end I simply removed all the Debian packages, grabbed the wxWindows source, fixed the single compile error it had with gcc 3.2, and installed that instead.

It’s one of those days when nothing works. I bring my work Windows box home with me all the time, and this is the first time in 18 months that it has failed to log me on from home… There is a message about the domain not being available, but this used to work only last week. I suspect that someone has changed something they didn’t really understand on the network configuration side of the fence.

Lots of CAUUG discussion about the next symposium, local politicians, and what to do next.
