General

Dave Malcolm extended[1] GDB to handle debugging of Python internals by using the embedded Python interpreter to pretty-print python innards.

Máirín Duffy continued[2] with Day 7 of an Inkscape class at a Boston-area middle school.

Richard W.M. Jones shared[3] a tip for using mock to build Rawhide packages under RHEL 5 if they work fine locally but mysteriously fail when built by Koji.

Red Hat has announced[4] a beta for RHEL 5.5. Enhancements include new hardware support, improved virtualization and better Windows interoperability.

Daniel Berrange showed[5] how to control "guest CPU & NUMA affinity in libvirt with QEMU, KVM & Xen". In a later post, Daniel explained[6] how to manage some low-level hardware configuration in libvirt.

Steven Moix installed[7],[8] the Nokia N900 (Maemo 5) SDK on Fedora, though there were a few minor hiccups.

A common task when writing DocBook is turning a comma-separated list into an <itemizedlist>. Joshua Wulf wrote[9] a set of macros for both TextMate and gedit to automate the task.
