Subject: Google sponsors Nmap summer student developers
Yesterday, Google announced their first Summer of Code program. This
innovative and generous program provides $4,500 stipends to each of
200 university students to create or enhance open source software
during their summer break. I am pleased to announce that Nmap is one
of 40 open source projects that Google selected for this program. We
would be pleased to work with one or more students to extend the power
of Nmap. You get paid, gain valuable experience and a great resume
booster, while the Nmap project and users benefit from your valuable
You have until June 14 to apply if you are interested, though your
chances may be better if you apply sooner. If you do fill out the
application, please also send me the project description and a brief
bio describing how your experience fits the project. Also let me know
what school you attend. I have written up some project ideas, though
you are free to submit whatever cool idea your heart desires.

I think it is targeting the wireless voip market, which could make GSM /CDMA cellular services as popular as horse-back transport.

Nokia having just emerged out of the dark cave, are testing the waters.
The recent Nokia "patent gift" to the kernel is a case in point.
As RMS said it seems to be one of the companies who try to give as
little as possible in exchange for a cave full of FLOSS riches.
The opening of it's patents itself was probably brought about by it's
inability to distribute patent restricted code in the linux kernel,
since this would place restrictions on a recipient and hence
invalidate their licence to distribute the kernel.
Thank RMS & saints for the gpl.

Hey ur right, i dont know i must have missed it, but i kinda did scrutinise
it, and that mention that u say looks like something added seprately so i
guess they added it in the last two three days... I dont know..
Anyways thanks for correcting me..

That is basically GTK+ only but with some modifications to make it optimum

I made some modifications in
the /usr/src/linux/drivers/ide/pci/sis5513.c file.
It is the driver for my ide-controller.
Now I would like to compile this file and load it as a module.
"make sis5513" gives me erros.

That is the end of your problems no? Once u have RH9 running you can
do whatever u want.

Why do u need the LCD anyway.

U dont need kbd, mouse and vdu anyway. In fact that is how most hosts
run. Just switch on and it will boot to it's default run level. If u
need any additional services just add them to the default run level.
