WooCommerce 1.2 now in Dutch


I spent most of my time in the last 2 weeks into translating WooCommerce into dutch (nederlands, nl_NL). Two days ago I made a Git pull request and now it has been included to the core.

WooCommerce 1.2 features the full dutch translation for WooCommerce 1.1.3

WooCommerce 1.2.1 will feature the full dutch translation for version 1.2.1

WooCommerce 1.2 dutch can be downloaded from WordPress.org / Plugins / WooCommerce

Linux Kernel 3.1 installation guide for Ubuntu Linux


This short walkthrough describes how to get the latest linux kernel version 3.1.0 working under Ubuntu Linux without having to compile it yourself.

This tutorial should work with the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (10.04 LTS, 11.04 and 11.10) and most distributions based on these versions of Ubuntu Linux including Mint.

The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration.
Note: ATI, Intel and NVIDIA drivers are automatically installed using DKMS, if you have these installed and up-to-date. Else … don`t blaim me.

Installation Guide

  1. Download the kernel headers package;
  2. And the appropriate package for your system
    AMD64: linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb
    I386: linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb
  3. And the accompanying compiled kernel;
    AMD64: linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb
    I386: linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb
  4. Install the files in the same order (else it won`t work!)
  5. In the terminal run:
    sudo update-grub
  6. Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
    If it`s not there check all steps (and of course for errors)
