Package: gdesklets
Version: 0.26-1
Severity: minor

I was shown gdesklets today at work, so I decided to get it set up on my
PowerBook. However, I noticed a few problems that, with a little time, I
found were rooted in the libdesklets common code. First, I'll be
attaching a patch that fixes libdesklets/CPU.py to parse /proc/cpuinfo
appropriately for Linux on PowerPC systems (so for example, the CPU info
applet shows "PowerPC 740/750 @ 400MHz" on my Pismo). Also, I noticed
that libdesklets/Network.py gets the IP address and feeds it back to the
caller in such a way that on a big-endian system, the individual bytes
of the IP address are reversed. I'm not a big Python developer, so I
don't know the right way to handle this, but this should really be fixed
(I handled it by swapping around the ordering of the individual bytes in
the returned address strings, but that's not really the right way
