 (hardware: PowerBook Lombard G3-400)

1. Result of booting today's rsync tree:

Entering xmon kernel debugger.

2. gmix sets Volume (read external speakers) and Speaker
   (read the PowerBook speakers) the way around. The labeling is
   misleading, it would be more appropriate to say respectively
   "External Speakers" and "Internal Speakers".
   The panel applet for the Volume sets the external speakers,
   which is not what one wants, at least in this case.
3. GNOME System Information, Detailed Sys info, CPU:
   - funny symbols appear
   - the processor is not displayed
   - the temperature is not displayed
   - bogomips: 801.18 (PowerBook Lombard 400Mhz)
     bogomips from the xterm reports: 526
4. GNOME calendar (gnomecal) does not work
5. JPilot (jpilot) is not available
6. Netscape Communicator/Navigator: great mess, none working.
7. nmap: Now I can nmap localhost. ok
8. gnu-prolog: not available
9. festival: not available
10. pcmcia: ???
11. how do I monitor the battery status?
   it would be nice if one of those panel applet would work,
   possibly advising about the time that is left and the
   eventual urge to shut-down immediately (which is of paramount
12. apmd: not supported (of course, it is Intel/Microsoft stuff!)
  - what is supported then?
  - It would be a good thing to add proper help
    in the kernel PM section.
  - the HD of my Lombard does not want to sleep for more than
    a few seconds, although there seem to be no disc acces.
  - how to set automatic powersaving for disk and display?
