Another Go at Arch

Posted 12-02-2008 at 07:30 PM by vectordrake

I'm going to try and install Arch Linux again. I really enjoyed having it on my computer before. It was snappy and relatively easy to install. I had first installed it with Fluxbox and quickly moved to XFCE, which I had for a short while. After that, I gave the KDEmod a try and I really liked what that could do. But, I am really liking Gnome lately for the reasons that I liked KDE before, so I might try to get a Gnome system running. Perhaps, I will see how functional I can make it, as far...

if [ "$(whoami)" != 'root' ]; then
   echo "This program must be run as root"
   exit 1;
 elif [ -z $1 ]; then

  1. Python-UNO bridge to OpenOffice, which is part of OO suite, is different. Under Linux it works flawlessly with the fairly new Python v. 2.5. Under Windows it works only with supplied Python v. 2.3.4. It wouldn't be so bad if recent wxWidgets

Final touches on an Ubuntu 8.10 LAMP server Part I

Posted 12-02-2008 at 03:03 PM by jkzfixme

Since my first post went down relatively painlessly I figured why not keep them rolling. One of the premiere things I use Linux for in a business environment is for web hosting. There are a ton of tutorials out there that get pretty in depth, such as "the perfect server" series on so I wont really get into details with installation. That being said I feel that there are a lot of odds and end that make a server more easily manageable, and I despise ISPconfig. One of the most...
