Intrepid and VM’s, Planet Ubuntu and WordPress

I just got an email from Oliver Gerlich regarding my post about Intrepid and VM’s. It appears that this issue is indeed an Intrepid problem and a bug has been filed on it. Looking at the thread there are some workarounds that are stable but slow, but I’m hoping that the upcoming kernel patches solve the issue.

In the same email Oliver noted that my Planet Ubuntu Feed was broken. To be quite honest I set it up and never bothered to check on it other than to see that I was listed. For all you wordpress.com users that are also Planet Ubuntu Members, try adding /atom to the end of your feed URL if clicking on your post title sends you back to the planet instead of to your blog post. As an aside I’m also wiping out my planet-ubuntu category because I can’t find an option to hide that categories in the widgets. Thanks Oliver for bringing the bug report to my attention and pointing out the glitch in feed URL handling between planet and WordPress. Although I’ve had this WordPress blog for a little while, I’m an oldtime MT user and haven’t quite got the hang of WordPress.

    according to this post near the end, it’s actually a VBox bug, not a kernel one. Dunno what that means for the patch…

    Kernel devs pointed at Vbox and the VBox team rose to the task and published a patch. It’s better in Vbox 2.0 but I think that in the end the issues will be resolved by tweaks on both ends.

    I read your blog via planet Ubuntu, it would be good if you could tweak your RSS to include full posts instead crippled versions.

    foo: Point taken. I had used the summary text option for the feed because I didn’t want to add to the slow load time and large amounts of scrolling on Planet Ubuntu. But it seems that most folks don’t do this and receiving yor request was enough to make me change my mind.

    Cheers,
    OS
