My First Blog

Hello my name is Mohammd Shaheer Mahmood and this is my first blog.

I am taking CTY-C(with Co-op) and am currently in my last semester hoping to graduate by the end of December.

I am also a Tutor in the learning center for the courses that I have previously taken.

My Seneca Wiki Page

I used mitbit to connect to the IRC server, I will be installing Xchat very soon. I did have a conversation with a real person. Attaching a Snippet

My learn ID is msmahmood, same as my IRC ID.

My opinion on Pidora Project

This is the beauty of open source that we can do such things like Pidora . I think it is an amazing project and it has given recognition the IT department of Seneca College. The only thing I came accross was that the word "Pidora" was offensive in Russian language which was apologized for. Some of the Russians find humor in that anyway.

How to Install GTK-RecordMyDesktop on RHEL 7 (best screen recording software imo)

If you want to record your screen to make tutorials or something else, GTK-recordmydesktop is capable of doing it. Most of the screen-recording programs that I have come across requires you to record your audio separately, however this software is also capable of recording audio without any extra step. It can also work with JACK audio server.

PART 1 - Install EPL repository for RHEL 7:
Open a terminalInstall epel using the following command: yum -y install epel-release.Refresh repo by typing the following commad: yum repolist.PART 2 - Install GTK-RecordMyDesktop: yum install gtk-recordmydesktop That's it, it should work right away.

Create isolated network on Virtual Machine Manager - Centos 6.5

Since most of the Linux administration practice is done in a virtual environment, I thought I should create a video about it, as I am aware that some students at my college struggle with it in their labs. Please let me know if I missed anything or did not explain anything clearly.
