The proper Windows command window Part 2

SneWs's picture

After getting some positive feedback on the quick hack I did Monday night, I've continued to hack on the command window replacement for Windows.

I've made the command window a wee bit more stable, and removed some of the annoying flickering when listing large directories as one example.

The entire list of new features and improvements

The start of a proper command window for Windows

SneWs's picture

After needing to do some work on Windows again, needing the command window (cmd.exe) I got really pissed. I need something better, something easy and something that doesn't limit me in my work. You know, like in Linux with Bash or Sh.

So, I've spent a couple of hours hacking on something that is currently in a working state, a easy to use command line tool that gives the user a proper Window with tabs and some nice colored output etc.

openSUSE 11.4 GM

SneWs's picture

After the dust has settled and I've used the GM release for a couple of days I thought that I would write up what does and doesn't work for my part.

Stuff that doesn't work
VMWare workstation; It will not compile the needed modules after install. A patch was made for 11.4 RC1 if I remember correctly, but it doesn't seem to be updated to support the GM release yet.

openSUSE 11.4 < 24h to release

SneWs's picture

In about 21 hours, writing time. openSUSE 11.4 will be released into the wild. Finally. This is one release I've really waited for. Aldo I have been running it on my main machine for the past week via the RC2 release, but it's always nice to be able to do that final upgrade to the stable GM release.

So, what's new in openSUSE 11.4? Well, a lot, as usual =)

* KDE 4.6
* Kernel 2.6.37
* LibreOffice (First stable release)
* And many many more...

openSUSE 11.4

SneWs's picture

Soon, a new version of openSUSE will be released. It will bring many nice improvements, but for my part, the most important one is KDE 4.6. I think that I might have used this line before, but it's really what I do feel about KDE. "KDE 4 is finally ready for mainstream usage". KDE 4 in it's early releases was horrible to say the least.

KDE 4.6 is so much easier to use, and the overall experience just feels awesome, it doesn't get in my way while working with something, it just works and enables me to work in a more efficient way.

Fixing Subclipse in Eclipse

SneWs's picture

One annoying thing I see time after time is that Subclipse, a Subversion plugin in Eclipse is that it fails to use the native implementation. The fix is easy, just change to the Pure Java implementation and you're good to go without any annoying messages.
The error message you might get when trying to use Subclipse will look something like this:
