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 12:46 PM 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. I had a FreeBSD/fluxbox screenshot on putfile.com that got more hits than virtually any other desktop environment I'd posted there. It's fast, light, and given the time and effort to tweak it just right, it's damned pretty, too. I entered into this new concept of minimalism...getting the same work done with half...

Mypaint-0.5.0 .spec

Posted 01-05-2011 at 08:41 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. Here's a spec built, tested and installed on Centos 5.5 Intel. Note it doesn't build for x86_64 as I have none:
Code:
%define debug_packages  %{nil}
%define debug_package %{nil}
%define name mypaint
%define ver 0.5.0
%define rel 1
Name: %{name}
Summary:

Great new year..

Posted 01-03-2011 at 05:52 PM by stefragre

Just a short post today. A wink and a nod to Jeremy and his holiday spirit. Great to enjoy such a resource that LQ provides us. I'm something of a 'distro junkie' known to change and try out new or newer OS's at a rapid pace. So much of what I post here will be related in that sense..
For instance, is it all Ubuntu out there.. Every time I check out the Distrowatch
pages there's a 'new variant' of that great distro listed. The only one I found
to really be worth while is Mint.....

Google TV ... the good, the bad, and the awesome

Oh Google how I <3 you ... and apparently you <3 me back. I just got my free Logitech Revue, compliments of the Google Developers contest. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time. I am in the midst of moving. While moving I dropped a huge box of technical books on my laptop and that sucker is fried like a meal at a truck stop. Ok, no worries I have a server, I can plug a monitor into and build a GUI ... plugged it in ... nothing. Changed the power supply ... nothing. Now both computers...
