So I finally got a working install on my computer by replacing the graphics card. So I decided to update from Feisty to Gutsy. I restarted X after my update and couldn’t log back in. I got a “KDM critical error” dialog box that told me to see the KDM error log, which actually didn’t tell me anything. It was a bit odd that when I restarted my computer, everything worked fine. So if you get that error, try a reboot.
In other news, has anyone looked at Python in Parallel? I was having a discussion with my advisor about parallel computing and he said FORTRAN was the way to go, but I think there have to be some Python projects in the works. I wonder if there are any benchmarks done comparing FORTRAN and Python. I looked on the web page but thought there may be even more relevant examples out there. I’m particularly interested in scientific applications, so if you do know of one, please drop me a comment.
According to this blog, Compiz Fusion 0.6.0 has been released. This is the first stable release of CF which is a good step for the CF community. Congrats everyone, maybe I’ll check out CF when there is an open driver for my video card.
