No m'he pogut estar de fer-ho....

Les botigues a la tele de matinada són els meus programes de tele preferits…

Myanmar

Hi ha coses a Myanmar la mar de curioses. Ahir vam al.lucinar amb el “TeleTAC” que gasten. Anavem de l’aeroport (NO HI HAVIA NINGU EN TOT L’AEROPORT! Van obrir les llums per nosaltres, i era a mig mati!) cap a l’hotel. El taxista agafa el bitllet per pagar el peatge, obre la finestreta, i sense parar i tocant el claxon, li passa a un que l’esperava. Les paletes mata-mosques son

Viagra Automated Script

Viagra is a small python script, in fact is just a kick and dirty hack right now, that automates all the enhancements to Fedora described in this pages. Right now has just a text interface, it will have a GTK interface shortly. http://carlesm.com/Viagra.py It is released under the GPL.

System

NTFS Support You can add NTFS support via 2 different ways. NTFS-3G, a user space program (available on Extras), or via a kernel module (kmod-ntfs) available on Livna.

To install simply: yum install ntfs-3g To mount a filesystem, f.e. /dev/sda3 on /mnt/ntfs use: ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mnt/ntfs Yum plugins There are some interesting plugins for yum that can make

Networking

VPN access – PPTP I need to have pptpclient in FC6 to connect to my work. As of today (29/Oct) pptpclient.sf.net has not been updated to support FC6, at least in the web, but the packages are already available. To install pptpclient: rpm -ihv http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/yum/stable/fc6/pptp-release-current.noarch.rpm This will add a couple repositories with PPTP tunnelling software. Then: yum –enablerepo=pptp-stable install pptpconfig will install anything needed to create PPTP VPNs.

MP3 audio support Video support (DiVX) Flash support Acrobat Reader K3B Extras MPlayer MP3 audio support Due to licensing problems Fedora Core doesn’t install any MP3 codec. As there are still people posting podcasts with MP3 format instead of OGG, some free content with MP3, and so. And I’m too

Repositories

You have 2 options concerning repositories, you can add some compatible repositories to Extras (livna.org) or you can switch to some other repositories that are not compatible with Extras (Dries, Dag, et al.). Compatibles with Extras Right now I use livna.org repository. It’s compatible with Fedora’s Core and Extras repositories. To add it simply install: http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm After installing livna (as of 25th Oct.) I experimented some problems concerning some weird
