I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.
But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.
Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.
This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date. America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.
I found a very nice program to run and check if my computer is vulnerable to Spectre and Meltdown. It is now March 2018. Two months after the initial reports of the vulnerabilities against computer processors, what is the state of security with regard to these two vulnerabilities? Thank you to this script by Stephen Lesimple. The link is a git clone link. It will download everything in its directory. Inspect the script before running it as root. There are no options. It will check your system against 3 CVE's made for the "speculative execution" vulnerability. This is my output.
