Since my blog is a guide to random things... here is a nice bash script to extract RPMs to a directory named after them self where the RPM can be located anywhere... that is, relative to the current directory or exact path

UPDATE: new blog note on how I somewhat got it working!


To prove the power of open source and linux to my roommate, I'm going to get his Plasmon D Series dvd robot working under linux as a NAT box that will not only be accessible from windows but hopefully the PS3 and capable of trans coding incompatible files. I have mostly been researching the topic and I believe I have all the software... Then why isn't it done yet? configuring... and figuring out the damn system. Though...
