logjam 4.5.0: still not dead [Aug. 24th, 2005|02:17 am]
I put up LogJam 4.5.0 at a new place since the old URL stopped working.

This release is mostly collected changes over the past year, focusing primarily on small issues like compatibility with new GTK versions, bug fixes, sync fixes and speed improvements.

If you're into playing around with your LJ data, you can build with the --with-sqlite3 option and resync your journal to get a single-file SQLite dump of your journal data. So now I can run sqlite:
sqlite3 .logjam/servers/LiveJournal.com/users/evan/journal.db
and start thinking of queries.

Like, to get my average post length:
> select avg(length(event)) from entry;

Or the months I posted the most in:
> select year, month, entrycount from (select year, month, count(*) as entrycount from entry group by year, month) order by entrycount desc limit 5;
year    month   entrycount
2000    5       171
2000    3       144
2000    6       114
2000    4       103
2000    7       89

If it doesn't, then the "Tags" entry on the "View" menu is just there to fuck with my head. ;)

Thanks evan for keeping logjam flag high!

I'm yet to download the install, so I hope the Ctrl+Alt+I italic versus insert image bug's been fixed...

Oh and I also hope that tag support has been included...

Tag support is included, but Ctrl-Alt-I is not :(

I will release my RPMS fixing the accel issue soon

Hey, top stuff - 'tis my favourite tool :)

Unfortunately when compiling I keep getting a this error:

init.o(.text+0x406): In function `setup_glibgdk':
/home/xxx/logjam-4.5.0/src/init.c:191: undefined reference to `g_thread_init'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [logjam] Error 1

I looked around for some specific help and modified some Makefiles to use the output of `glib-config --libs gthread` as one potential solution but alas it still doesn't work :( Other help also seems to be a bit too vague :(

I'm on Slackware 10.1

Thanks for a new release!

Currently I see that the only thing which cries to be fixed is the same accelerator used for insertion of a picture and a pair of italic tags - Ctrl-Alt-I. I remember you promised to fix it :)

I suggest to change accel inserting picture to Ctrl-Alt-P.

Also, micro update for russian localization is available from here:


Yes, a version for 4.4.1 works fine for 4.5.0, and I see no additional strings to be added/fixed

I'm getting a Client error: Invalid text encoding: The text entered is not a valid UTF-8 stream trying to save any entry that has non-ASCII characters in it.

I'm in an en_US.UTF-8 locale.

Build problem

Just a heads-up: 4.5.0 repeatedly failed to link on my Slackware-based system because the configuration somehow failed to pick up libgthread-2.0. I had to manually execute the final link with -lgthread-2.0 added. I haven't yet figured out why it's not picking it up.

Re: Build problem

Gzipped configure output here. I don't see anything enlightening in it as to why it's missing libgthread-2.0 though.

Re: Gentoo

apart from --with-sqlite3, is there anything else I need to do to get the dB dump?

I just did a journal sync, and only got the month-by-month xml files, no .db file.

Does 4.5.x fix the sync bug(s) in 4.3.1 that cause various posts to "Just not be there?"

Or was/is that an LJ bug?

I'm not sure, but I have made a lot of sync fixes since then.
Maybe you could try it and let me know! :)
