I got ksmserver compiled, thanks to a few changes by Lubos!!! And the advice here http://kopete-qq.blogspot.com/2006/06/howto-upgrade-to-head-kdelibs4.html helped me get rid of my segfault.

Currently I get the runtime fatal error: Could not register with D-BUS. Aborting.

This is making progress.
Here's some notes I'm made about my Google SOC project.

TIME:
I am UTC-4, Lubos is UTC+2
Meet 6a-12p EST, and maybe after 2pm


COMPILING:
find a version of kdelibs and kdebase that works
svn.kde.org:/home/kde/branches/work/kdelibs4_snapshot
[Seli] 29.5.2006 was the day when dbus was merged in trunk, so before that trunk kdelibs_stable and kdebase should compile, if nothing else


DEBUGGING:
Login as kde4 on a VT
run "(X :1 vt10 -terminate &); sleep 5; DISPLAY=:1 xterm"
[Seli] that fires up another X with xterm and I run "startkde" from there (and configure ksmserver to ignore xterm in order to having one more each time)


ABOUT EDITING OTHER APPS TO WORK:
[Seli] I suppose you'll need that for saving session snapshots that won't be followed by a logout
>fulld< oh, apps don't support that yet?
[Seli] but I think you won't need to do that right from the start ... simply fix what shows up when it shows up
[Seli] you shouldn't spend the whole time just …

Collatz research

When I was looking into the Collatz conjecture, I ran into this sequence:
0, 1, 2, 5, 4, 7, 10, 19, 8, 11, 14, 23, 20, 29, 38, 65, 16, 19, 22, 31, 28, 37, 46, 73, 40, 49, 58, 85, 76, 103, 130, 211, 32, 35, 38, 47, 44, 53, 62, 89, 56, 65, 74, 101, 92, 119, 146, 227, 80, 89, 98, 125, 116, 143, 170, 251, 152, 179, 206, 287, 260, 341, 422, 665 Please let me know if you can find a general way to predict numbers in that sequence.
