This howto will get bugzilla with ALL of the optional modules installed on Fedora 10. If you just want a barebones bugzilla up and running, you might want to read the whole thing and then just look for the required parts. Otherwise, you can follow me through the install and end up with all the bells and whistles.
The checksetup.pl script will tell you what you’re missing and what you need to install to get bugzilla up and running. But the problem is it pushes you to use perl’s package management to build the perl modules which may or may not work. I think it’s best to use YUM to install and manage all of your packages and not to mix and match both. This will help to avoid conflicting packages and seemingly random complaints of a package missing when it’s not.
I read this article and my mind started churning away, thinking up new ideas for home networking appliances that I could create and sell, but then I ran into this part and started scratching my head because something just didn’t sound right immediately.
I can’t find any installation procedures or prebuilt rpm’s for Fedora 10, so i’m going to make my own, so here goes. … whole lotta stuff here … And finally, start opennms.
Instead of typing the export string out each time and the emerge line too, I just recalled them from the history knowing that the last set of commands that started with those characters were the commands I wanted. If you didn’t know about these handy shortcuts, now you know, and knowing is have the battle. So when is that movie coming out anyway!!?
I usually make my boot partition ext2 because it doesn’t stay mounted and doesn’t get written to unless i’m installing a new kernel or tweaking the options like vga=0×317 or whatever. But strangely enough, when I boot, grub sees the boot partition, grub.conf, and the kernel and loads with no problem. But when I try to mount /dev/sda1 from a shell it doesn’t seem to know what i’m talking about!
I found two really useful sites to use when searching for domain names. I was trying some other sites too but they were kind of flaky. One completely died while I was firing away names at it in multiple windows. Anyway, these two are all you really need. I spent the most time on Bust-a-name. If you know exactly what you want, go to PC Names and just type it in. As you type it will let you know what’s available. Instant domain name completion.
I hate PDFs! I hate opening the viewer and sitting there, waiting for it to load, then dealing with the pop up asking me to update my software. I wish they were like regular text files or images, and not some twisted mutant hybrid of both with all the shortcomings from each side! So… now I just convert PDF’s to JPEG images!!! I love ImageMagick. It’s just so freaking useful… and free.
Here’s a very simple script to convert PDF’s to JPG’s:
