Well I spent a good many of hours getting my freevo setup all back in full working order over the past couple of days. Added the epia patch to the 2.6.6 kernel to get fully accelerated video again, and found out what my problem was with xine after I upgraded. It seems there was some default option to resample the video in some way which was seriously killing the performance of the machine. Once I got that sorted out everything was well once again. I also setup my buddies machine with the new kernel and freevo as well. I also found out you can install acpid and with the right kernel options make the power button do a shutdown. So I set that up as well which makes the whole system pretty slick in design. If I get some more time I might try and setup the bootsplash
thing again too.
I also started dumping some of my notes into a page which I'll have to throw up online when I get a chance. So many things to do....
