Could rapid releases be hurting FOSS?

Posted 03-16-2012 at 08:53 PM by Skaperen

One of the things businesses do not like to do is so many upgrades of software versions. Once they get things stable with a combination of versions that work together, they like to leave it that way. Usually, most major distributions work well because those distributions try to make it work that way. Then the only reasonable upgrade for a business seeking stability is to upgrade to the distribution's next version.

But even then, such an upgrade of a distribution takes staff time,...

I've been trying to figure out how the IAM security policies work in AWS for quite a while now.
There is a lot of documentation, pictures, and some examples explaining how to do many things; though what I was looking for was/is hard to find. My goal was to create an IAM policy that would grant an IAM user group access to one S3 bucket. After trying to read examples that made since in theory, I went off trying to cobble a policy that would get me to my goal, with some bumps on the road (be

Map DVD in repository

Posted 03-14-2012 at 09:30 PM by lilchakki

Hi,

I do not have internet access to my lab machine and want to additional packages on RHEL. I have a DVD and want to add the packages available in DVD in the software repository for offline installations.

Browsing DVD and selecting a particular package is tiresome as there are dependencies which are missing.

Is there a way to view the local packages available in DVD from software repository.
I am using RHEL 5.3

Thanks in advance,...

day 1

Ran the live edition, seemed to go OK, internet working etc, so decided to install. My partitions were as follows, to make it easier (glad I decided to do that last time!):

/sda1 12GB obsolete ubuntu version to be replaced by the new LMDE
/sda2 logical partition:
/sda5 2GB swap
/sda3 36GB DATA partition with all my files on
/sda4 11GB Linux Mint 10 (to leave for now so I know it works if I need to do work!)


Install ran...

Linux Mint Debian Edition

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent...
