Quad Core G5 has arrived

Today my new Apple Quad-Core 2.5GHz G5 has arrived. Benjamin Herrenschmid's patches for multi-core Apple G5 boxes work like a charm. The only big issue is the thermal management. I looked into fan control / thermal management a bit, but unfortunately I don't have any time to work on this now, since I'm leaving for a one week tonight :(

You might ask yourself why a Linux kernel hacker buys a Quad Core G5 box at this time, now that Apple has started to sell Intel based boxes. However, this is exactly the reason. At this time, this might be almost the last possibility to get a four-way PPC64 SMP box that is available off-the-shelf.

If I want an x86 box, I wouldn't buy an Apple. The sole reason for having bought and used a number of Apple machines during the last six years was because they're mainstream PPC based hardware.

iptables-1.3.5 is out

I've released iptables-1.3.5 earlier today. This will probably mark the last 'new feature' release of the iptables-1.3.x branch.

I'm still working on the initial beta release of iptables-1.4.x, the userspace counter part to what is now known in kernel space as 'x_tables'. Stay tuned.

Papers accepted at FISL

Out of my four proposed papers at FISL 7.0, three have been accepted. To my big surprise, the paper on gpl-violations.org was turned down. I would rather have dropped one of the other papers than this one :(

Anyway, as indicated before on this blog, I'm more than happy to be able to visit Brazil again.
