Getting the right packages after a fresh install is a headache. That is exactly what I had when I had to do a fresh installation of my Fedora after I accidentally corrupted my entire disk .
I didn’t want to spend days installing the packages this time. This time I wanted to do it smart and quick.
The problem here was that I couldn’t just
yum install everything, that’s because Fedora community adheres to free software principles and doesn’t offer non-free codecs and drivers from it’s repositories. But there are 3rd party repositories which allow Fedora users to get non-free components.
On August 23rd, we, at JMILUG, hosted a GSOC Meetup at Jamia Millia Millia Islamia University, New Delhi, home of JMILUG. The GSOC meetup was an opportunity to meet and learn from past and present GSOC students who’ve actively contributed to Open Source projects in collaboration with developers from all over the world.
In the words of the maintainers of Drush:
Drush is a command-line shell and scripting interface for Drupal, a veritable Swiss Army knife designed to make life easier for those who spend their working hours hacking away at the command prompt.
It’s just been few weeks I’ve started using Drush and I’m already a fan. If you are a drupal developer or a site maintainer and still haven’t heard of Drush go check it out.
This post is about choosing Octopress over WordPress hosted blog, it does not talk about WordPress as a framework.
It has been a very few days I started this blog. Now I feel a bit of a weird pride in announcing that this may be the last post on the wordpress, it’s now hosted on github – http://gleek.github.io , and powered by Octopress.
I believe the environment in which one works is directly responsible for one’s productivity. It’s the reason I think, it’s important to choose the right editor, font, etc.
One of the main attractions about a system is the desktop background. We tend to choose our background which identifies our interests , are aesthetically pleasing or remind us of our good times.
But the thing with consistency is that it gets boring with time. Wallpapers we once loved, becomes a burden and we find it hard to come back to that wallpaper after getting it on 24×7.
One of the main drawbacks of IRC-chat is the absence of logging. This was the main reason why our community JMI-LUG almost stopped using the channel for any discussion, as there was nothing to refer to later. There was a need for a kind of a bot which could save all the logs of the chats we had. Hence, I began my search for any open-source IRC bot to cater our needs. I found many bots which could do the task.
