Changed line 59 from:
  • know why OpenOffice.og 3.0.0 causes Xorg to emit messages about "doodads" to stdout
to:
  • know why OpenOffice.og 3.0.0 causes Xorg to emit messages about "doodads" to stdout. Thanks to various people at PDNS: a doodad is something on the keyboard which is not a key or a geometry. The messages are harmless. We have started to look into the possibility of eliminating these messages.

to:
  • Cross compile windows executables on Linux.
    - I (JonathanWoithe) have a script which creates a win32 cross compiler environment based on mingw - grab it from http://www.atrad.com.au/~jwoithe/lca2009/xcompile4win32 (temporary location). It should be self explanatory, but email me if you want further details. It's also possible to use this environment to compile against win32 dlls for which you have no source - again, email me if you want more info. I use this to compile high speed data acquisition programs which use hardware which has no Linux support.
