Using Local Copy Of Install Disks In Fedora Core 5

Posted 03-29-2007 at 07:33 PM by mortovski

FC5 doesn't read from the install disks by default, which is a *complete* pain if you're on dialup!

Here's how to get it working:

1) Create a local folder (let's call it Install).
2) Within that folder create a folder called RPMS.
2) Copy the contents of the RPMS folder on each CD to the RPMS folder. It will moan about overwriting a file called TRANS.TBL but don't worry about that.
3) Copy the comps.xml from the REPODATA folder on the first...

Backup and Restore Ubuntu System using Sbackup

Posted 03-21-2007 at 08:06 AM by sridhar11

SBackup is a simple backup solution intended for desktop use. It can backup any subset of files and directories. Exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. A maximum individual file size limit can be defined. Backups may be saved to any local and remote directories that are supported by gnome-vfs. There is a Gnome GUI interface for configuration and restore.

Back to my old computer...

Posted 03-20-2007 at 11:01 AM by serafean

Well, I got my hands on my old computer, and Gentoo was still installed.a little emerge --sync, and DB was updated, then a little emerge -u world and no computer for 3 days. but passed from gnome 2.14 to gnome 2.16, and many other upgrades.
After a bit of troubleshooting, its working like charm again.

A little more tweaking, and Beryl is here!!!! Those raindrops are really funny, and the wiper, LOL.
