Damn, just hit ctrl-c in the wrong window and killed logjam.
Anyway, got a bit more done today at work than yesterday, although I still spent a bit on this fun discussion topic. Also had a 2.5 hour long os-devel meeting this afternoon. The pain.
But, I managed to get grub building with gcc 3.1, automake 1.6 and autoconf 2.53 this afternoon. Not nearly as bad as it could have been. Even getting the splashimage patch to apply to a new version (0.92) was remarkably painless.
Just another day of classes. Then, need to do a little bit more on the user guide bits for my senior design project and take an easy exam in a week in a half.
Of course, this also means that I have to look at rpm soon. Oh, the pain.
