Here I write about various events I was involved in and ideas that inspired me. Recently, it is more of a linux blog because I have been doing a lot of work on it. However, off and on I write on various other things that my mind just can't let go easily.

Removing slotted libpng in Gentoo
While upgrading my Gentoo system, I upgraded gentoolkit package and I got a message saying asking me to run the following command.
glsa-check -p affected
Running it told me that there are no upgrades available for libpng-1.2.44. I found out that there were multiple versions of libpng installed on my system:
a slotted version, i.e. libpng-1.2.44.
The solution was to remove all versions of libpng and freshly install it. This can be achieved using the following command.
