Surfraw - Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the World Wide Web

Posted 06-30-2010 at 02:55 PM by craigevil (craigevil's random words of wisdom)

Are you tired of clicking the search box in Firefox to do searches or changing the search engine. Then surfraw is definitely for you. Get rid of the searchbox and use Surfraw.

REAL Firefox on Debian

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:

Lock Table Problems

Posted 06-29-2010 at 11:23 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 07:00 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....
