So I am very frustrated because:
* I just committed and unfinished piece of code to CVS
* And I couldn't solve the bug that mknester assigned to me, because I
can't make a lousy test sample.
I'm sorry for Adding an unfinished example, but nobody has replied to
explicit my questions in CVS. Perhaps I have asked to many question in
my GtkDemo posts and should just ask one question each day ? I guess
that looking a 5 question in a post is kind of discouraging.
Plus I don't know how to invoke the script that automatically updates
the ChangeLog, I fell stupid.
It started nicely, mknester gives me a bug. :-)
I go to the page, and "Bang" first problem I don't know how the hell
Drag and Drop works in Gnome. :-( So I google for a while and kind of
learn a little what it is for, but I don't really know how it work.
Anyway I do a patch iteration (with lots of help from mknester & team
from the IRC), and I have only to test it right ?
"Bang again", I can find a simple example of drag and drop in C :-(
luckily I find one in c++, but I don't know c++, I try to port it but I
just not good enough.
AM I STUPID or just didn't inherited the hacker gene !!!
Give me some constructive criticism please .
So who do gurus actually do it ?
How do you get unstuck ?
Is there some hidden pieces of Gtk+ Documentation I should know about ?
Sorry for venting out publicly but I fell incompetent and had to get it
out of my system.
