Ubuntu Gutsy 64bit Wine misses ssl support so Google Picasa can not sign in.

Today I have realized that Picasa - I am using "windows version" of picasa under wine - can not sign me in - means no web upload is possible - from my home machine (Ubuntu Gutsy 64bit) and wine showed the following error: fixme:win:FlashWindowEx 0x33afd4 fixme:wininet:InternetSetOptionW Option INTERNET_OPTION_CONNECT_TIMEOUT (10000): STUB fixme:wininet:InternetSetOptionW INTERNET_OPTION_SEND/RECEIVE_TIMEOUT not supported on protocol 1 fixme:wininet:NETCON_init can't use SSL, not compiled in. I was a bit surprised since Picasa on my office notebook (Ubuntu Feisty 32bit) worked fine. So checked the error and decided to recompile wine and see if ssl is really not compiled in.

Then downloaded wine source too into a temporary directory and tried to compile. # mkdir /tmp/wine_build # cd /tmp/wine_build # apt-get source wine # cd wi

Line6 PodXT Linux Driver 0.7.2 is incompatible with kernel >= 2.6.22

I have updated my Ubuntu Feisty to Gutsy some weeks ago because of a problem booting up from raid . Upgrade solved the issue but brought some others. One of the most serious to me was that the Linux Line6 PodXt driver could not be compiled anymore. The error I got was: make default make -C /lib/modules/2.6.22-12-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2 modules make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.22-12-generic' CC [M] /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.o /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c: In function ‘snd_pod_trigger’: /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:40: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘snd_pcm_group_for_each’ /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:40: error: expected ‘;’ before ‘{’ token /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:33: warning: unused variable ‘err’ /home/user1/workspace/line6usb-0.7.2/pcm.c:32: warning: unused variable ‘s’ make[2]: *** [/home/user1/works
