something I’ve been monkeying around with

1. Install Fedora Core 3.(do not install the graphics libraries…freetype-devel, gd-devel, libpng-devel, libjpeg-devel, xorg-x11-devel)
2. Update my /etc/yum.conf:

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
retries=20
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

[base]
name=Fedora Core $releasever – $basearch – Base
baseurl=http://mirrors.xmission.com/fedora/core/3/i386/os/

[updates-released]
name=Fedora Core $releasever – $basearch – Released Updates
baseurl=http://mirrors.xmission.com/fedora/core/updates/3/i386/

3. Install Gyum and update
4. install gnome-desktop-devel.i386, gd-devel.i386, libpng-devel, libjpeg-devel, perl-Compress-Zlib.i386

Advanced Sun LDAP administration

Today is busy as it’s my first day back in the office after 4 days at class. It was a good class on Advanced Sun LDAP administration. Great guy Kevin from Chalk IT in Canada taught it. Nice guy, but don’t ask him about his speeding ticket. Fellow won’t shut up.

Anyhow, I’m off to get coffee in order to gird myself for the upcoming meeting at 9. Then I get my last year’s review at 1. How fun.
