Before leaving for school this morning, I thought I'd take a look at
the Quick Guide in Yelp.
Issue 1: Yelp + quick guide consumed all resources. Mouse locked up.
Keyboard locked up. Disk thrashing furiously. After 5 minutes I gave
up waiting and did a hard reset.
When things got going again, I tried Yelp + User Guide. That worked fine.
make qg worked, but it took a lot longer than it used to. The
resulting html file opened ok. I didnt' check to see if it was all
validate quickguide.xml worked no problem.
I hope the problem is unique to my combination of: My hardware + Hoary
+ yelp + quickguide. Anyone else have this problem? I can understand
why you would be reluctant to test it!
I opened quickguide.xml in gedit to take a look and see if there was
anything that jumped out at me. While skimming, I noticed another
issue, probably unrelated.
I noticed the "Applications Menu" has been changed. (see
http://people.ubuntu.com/~mako/docteam/quickguide/ch03.html) It is no
longer correct. Part of it now reads "The Applications menu is the
located on the top panel. It contains programs are grouped into
sub-menus by type." It was fine last week. It had been marked as
completed, but then it was changed, and the change is bad.
I had to rush off to school (where I am now) so I couldn't fix it myself.
Question: Do we now have to go throught the Quick Guide line by line,
rechecking all of the complete sections? I thought it was done.
P.S. Hard reset!!!!! In Linux!!!!!! Ouch.
