Great way to see in the New Year! Thanks, Sven.
Hm, sorry to say that the memory requirements of glibtest exceed the
capacity of that computer. The VM was quickly starting to be swapping as
hell, almost using no CPU anymore, just waiting for the hard disk. I was
planning to upgrade the Ram anyway, but with the Mac Mini it's a bit
tricky, so it'll have to wait a bit.
Next week I can transfer the Ubuntu 64bit VM on my office computer and
let it run there.
happy new year's eve,
