Scripting/Programming As A System Administrator

Posted 01-06-2011 at 05:47 AM by mufy (From A System Admin's Desk)
Updated 01-06-2011 at 06:02 AM by mufy (Categorising)

The vast experience I gained into programming was during my school days in C++. There was nothing that I hated in it neither did I find any sort of pull towards programming.

The years that followed my post schooling I have found myself drifting away from coding, intentionally many a times. Starting my career as a System Administrator I found the need to carry out tasks with the help of bash scripts in Linux. It has been an on and off thing ever since.

Now I deal more...

Solved: "mount error: could not resolve address for <hostname>. No address associated with hostname"

This error may happen when trying to mount a cifs/smbfs share, be it either via fstab or command line. Most people seem to either not have the problem or circumvent it by using static IPs instead of hostnames, which will work only as long as the IPs don't change. Funnily enough, it seems that for some people the problem is exactly the other way around, IPs won't work, only the hostname. Weird. This is also kind of funny/infuriating as the share will be readily accessible via konqueror, and perhaps...

minimalism++?

Posted 01-05-2011 at 11:46 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Years ago I discovered fluxbox and gave it a try. Until that point, I was a pretty devote KDE user. Fluxbox amazed me with how lightweight yet *powerful* and *configurable* it was.

Mypaint-0.5.0 .spec

Posted 01-05-2011 at 07:41 AM by unSpawn

Mypaint is a open-source graphics application for use with a tablet. It kind of looks like Fractal Design Painter must have looked at alpha 0.1 stage. Nonetheless worth a try building a package.

Code:
%define debug_packages  %{nil}
%define debug_package %{nil}
%define name mypaint
%define ver 0.5.0
%define rel 1
Name: %{name}
