Ich teste gerade mal Gnome Blog, ein kleines Gnome applet um einen Eintrag ins Blog zu setzen…. praktische Sache.
Finally running Linux on my desktop computer….
I finally switched to using Linux on my desktop pc… gentoo to be exact. Took me about a weekend to have the most important stuff set up, like GNOME, mozilla, tv and music apps etc. Right now it’s compiling OpenOffice.org, just like the last few hours 😉
Following some Gentoo security bugs
Since I have been using pine-maildir and there was a security update for pine but not pine-maildir I am following Bug #28877, but it doesn’t really seem to interest anyone.
Then yesterday this OpenSSL Security Advisory came out and I filed #29999, which was marked a duplicate of #30001 later. I just emerged the new ebuild for 0.9.6k which is still masked but works fine.
Finally I’m follwing #29893 about a vulnerability in Apache 2.0.47 & mod_cgi. The original bug can be found here at the Apache Bug Database.
CVS for configuration files, web pages, etc II
Just wanted to list what helped understanding CVS:
- CVS-RCS-HOWTO Document for Linux (Source Code Control System) at The Linux Documentation Project
- MarkD’s Guide to CVS, unfortunately the chapter ‘Using CVS’ isn’t done yet
- the cvs info and man pages, the info pages actually have a quite good explanation of CVS
CVS for configuration files, web pages, etc
I just started using CVS to keep track of the changes I make to various configuration files and the templates for this blog etc. Hopefully i got the discipline to keep using it and hopefully it will make it easier for me to remember what I changed when.
Btw, for this little purpose it actually seems quite easy to use 🙂
