Slackware-14.1-Hacks-Firefox 24.X and Java

Posted 05-19-2014 at 06:40 PM by arniekat

You need to compile and install the following application from SlackBuilds.org:

jdk-7u55

Note - I could not download any files from the Oracle website without having java already installed and configured for Firefox. What I did is install and configure an old version, jdk-7u21, then I downloaded and compiled the current version, which jdk-7u55. After that, I upgraded the package using the new version.

You will need to download jdk-7u55-linux-i586.tar.gz...

creating VMDK file for raw disk access by virtualbox on linux host

Posted 05-19-2014 at 03:32 PM by dr_agon

Recently I repartitioned my harddrive and had to recreate VMDK file which is used to access some of my physical partitions by guest machine.
You can do it using the command
Code:
$ sudo vboxmanage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename test.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sda -partitions 1,3
The result did not satisfy me, because guest machine required RW access to entire /dev/sda.
Looking for description of VMDK format I have found this.
So, I modified the lines in VMDK file...

New beta version of Pyplate CMS

Posted 05-17-2014 at 01:08 PM by Pyplate

I've made a lot of improvements to Pyplate. New posts can now be saved to a drafts folder before they are published, and they can also be previewed while in the draft area.

I've added a page to the UI where you can export and import the database to XML files. This makes it easier to display the database in a human readable form. You can edit the XML files and re-import them to make changes to the database.

Pyplate now uses a comment template and a sharing template...

The "DE" environment variable affects xdg-open settings/behavior

Posted 05-16-2014 at 06:32 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I once saw someone who had "export DE=openbox", and so I changed accordingly, it was "kde" before, even though I'm on Openbox.

But now I realize that it affects things like xdg-open, which is set by configurations that I think aim to set almost-universal file associations. I think that perhaps Openbox "doesn't even count" as a DE to the related settings, so the result is that, for example, you can't open some stuff with the associated app from google...
