What ctioga is missing

I haven't posted for a long while about ctioga, but that does not mean that development has stopped. It goes on, and features get added basically every single time I need them. Recent additions make it possible to tune a little more the look of the legends and add pure text lines in them.

I've however realized that now, what ctioga is missing the most is real flexibility over the coordinates. For now, all coordinate positions are either relative to the frame (such as for --inset) or to the graph (for --draw). What I really wish is a way to mix all kind of coordinates: real size (1cm), frame position and graph position. That will require quite a fair deal of work, of course, but that shouldn't be too difficult... I'll go on posting about it here.

CivCTP does not work with 2.6.25 kernels

Well, yes, I'm still playing old games like Civilization Call to Power, because I like... And I've recently had troubles getting it to play on a Debian/sid machine with a 2.6.25 kernel. I seemed to remember it was working fine before that, so I insisted, to the point that I switched back to a 2.6.18 kernel... And that worked ! I don't know what did change, but that is a weird bug indeed...
