REAL Firefox on Debian

Posted 06-29-2010 at 07:11 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

This is all I do to use Firefox rather than Iceweasel.
1) download Firefox
2) extract to my /home/Downloads
3) symlink plugins by doing:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins /home/craig/Downloads/firefox/plugins
4) open iceweasel with iceweasel -profilemanager and create a profile for Firefox
5) copy my iceweasel profile to the new firefox profile
6) create a text file called Firefox.desktop

my Firefox.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]

Lock Table Problems

Posted 06-29-2010 at 10:23 AM by ubikuberalles

Here's one that happens to me from time to time:

rpmdb: Lock table is out of available locker entries

This error happens when running the RPM command, either directly or through another program.

The solution:

1. rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
2. rpm --rebuilddb
3. Confirm the RPM command is working again:
rpm -qa | sort

Easy peasy.

SlackBuilds for qgis and gdal

Posted 06-29-2010 at 06:00 AM by 55020

Here's some news on two of the SlackBuilds I maintain at SlackBuilds.org.

qgis

It appears that the update of SIP in Slackware 13.1 (which occurred quite late in the -current cycle) exposed some breakage in the qgis build system. The consequence is that the current SBo-13.1 "BUILD=1" qgis-1.4.0 script builds without Python support. Unfortunately this means that a lot of qgis plugin functionality is disabled.

The problem is known upstream....

R.I.P. "What Are You Doing Now"

Posted 06-28-2010 at 07:27 PM by damgar

I think the title says it all. Today my favorite brain dump died. But in all honesty she'd gotten a little slow in her old age and I'm not one to cry over closed threads, so cheers to the mods for doing what had to be done.
