Exporting Evolution (contacts) Entries

To export all vcards I use exportevolution.py:

  $ exportevolution.py > /home/oyuksel/junk/alo.vcf
  $

I am working on a script called splitvcf.py to generate separate vcards.

  $ splitvcf.py
  727 files created.
  $

I’ll put those into a sf project soon.

USB TV BOX

Just got a noname MODEL:USB2.OBOX (or 0BOX?) and attached to my D630 running EL5U2 (i386).. Attaching gives
Jul 30 13:19:55 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 7
Jul 30 13:19:55 localhost kernel: usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

can’t get device qualifier: Operation not permitted
can’t get debug descriptor: Operation not permitted

this is not much helpful (yet)..

The

idVendor 0x6000
idProduct 0x0001
bcdDevice 0.01
iManufacturer 16
iProduct 32
iSerial 64

tells
me that this is actually some common chip / device. Still I doubt a
generic driver to be around. Shall check with Fedora 9 too.

Now testing via VMWare workstation on XP .. Just to be sure that the device is working..

–>
And VMWare installation fails with a blue screen .. Maybe it is vmware
or worse it is the device itself .. I shall test this on a native
environment .. Maybe that Toshiba Satellite notebook.. Hmm..
