The new box is really fast. It can updatedb 7GB of data in 35 seconds and run ldconfig on the full system in less than a second. (have any more useless benchmarks?)

I got tired of cod­ing KRN on­ly, so I went and im­ple­ment­ed a QPaint­De­vice that pro­duces PDF out­put :-)

Us­ing it, you can use the ex­act same code used for screen draw­ing (or post­script print­ing) and have it gen­erte a nifty PDF file.

How­ev­er, that will on­ly be part­ly free soft­ware be­cause it re­quires PDFLib which has the Al­addin li­cense.

I will prob­a­bly Al­addin it too, and who knows, maybe some Qt com­er­cial deelop­er will pay me $10 to use it ;-)

It was amaz­ing­ly lit­tle work (it's over 60% done al­ready). QPaint­De­vices rule. I should do a libart one... as soon as I un­der­stand how that thing work­s, or find some doc.
