Customizable Weather Plasmoid: animated images patch and GISMETEO weather support

Tagged:

Small patch for KDE 4 Customizable Weather Plasmoid to support animated images in “satellite images” view and config for GISMETEO weather support.

Update 2009.08.07: starting from CWP 0.9.11 animated images support and GISMETEO config are now in official CWP distribution, thanks to CWP author for prompt response! Moreover, as far as I see they both were fixed and improved during integration, so I recommend using version 0.9.11 instead of my patches and thus this page is left for historical reasons only.

Linux kernel undervolting patch for AMD processors

Tagged:

Simple patch for 2.6.27 Linux kernel to provide full control over voltages/frequencies of AMD CPUs supporting Cool’n’Quiet technology.

Update: patches for 2.6.31 and 2.6.32 are available too.

Update 2010/02/10: it was pointed out that Linux-PHC project currently provides patches for AMD (see comments for details), so I’d strongly recommend checking their patches first instead of mine.

Patch for aspell 0.60.5 for Win32 compilation

Tagged:

This patch for aspell 0.60.5 makes it possible to compile it natively on Win32. Tested configuration is Microsoft Visual C++ 2008, Win32/x64 targets, but as cmake is used for building, it should handle all other Win32 compilers more or less gracefully also.
