Status Update: 15 January 2012


A frustrating week, with a good chunk of it lost to the landing of bug 715952, which seemed to tickle a bug in my graphics card driver, resulting in a crash almost every time I tried to launch a trunk build. Spent a ridiculous amount of time sshing into my box trying to remote-debug the problem, with little success. The problem was solved by an upgrade of my driver to the latest ATI proprietary drivers, but that was somewhat hairy, and proved to be another timesink.

  • Have slowed down my Tinderboxpushlog investigations - the bug I was trying to solve is looking more like an IT problem at Mozilla. That said, I have been fleshing out some ideas about how to improve this tool.
  • Started work on a little webapp, more details soon...
