The Path Ahead

Posted 12-20-2005 at 08:46 PM by danieljames

Now that I am here, in the Open Source world, I am finding so much more than an operating system with enough programs to keep me going. There is so much stuff out there. I made a promice to myself that I would try to keep some records of my learning so that I can write some documentation that might help some others that have come from a similar level of ignorance about computers to me. I have kept the records but getting around to writting the documentation always seems to compete with so many...

Why I love Linux

Posted 12-20-2005 at 08:27 PM by danieljames

The world of computing and that outside the house really are so much bigger than I can see and I find that there are plenty of things in the world that help to keep me distracted and insulated from learning about my environment. Linux, however, exists in a very different space. Working with Linux I feel challenged, welcome and encouraged to expand my own understanding about computers and the world of technology at large.

In a world with so many locked doors and a dollar price on...

Fedora Core 4 (New Meaning to Dependancy hell)

Posted 12-20-2005 at 06:15 PM by carl0ski

i want to do something very simple
but fedora makes it rediculously difficult,
in a sense almost working against me.

i want to install this rpm

dependancy hell is the result (i actually thought someone made this up since Mandrake never had it)

Yum is flakey at best it lacks, speed efficiency and user friendliness.
yum install
yum localinstall
refuse to install it

Today URPMI S$%# itself and Fedora X86_64 DVD just happened to around. Good Idea??

Posted 12-20-2005 at 05:21 AM by carl0ski

The lesson i learned today is dont delete the entire /var cache directory
apparently it causes problems

To fix it i was going to quickly use mandriva repair/update

but Fedora was sitting there staring at me.

Am i happy?
not so far
Fedora core 4
1. come with KDE 3.4.0 (bit outdated and .0 isnt ever a favoured version)
2. Install took a very long time 30mins (equililent install in Mandriva x86_64 is 15mins)...
