Fedora Package Installation - Latest update November 19th

I had issue with the paver command when I was installing so I asked it on github.

This was the problem:
paver build --install-conf=`pwd` --install-data=`pwd` --install-sbin=`pwd`
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/paver", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('Paver==1.1.1', 'console_scripts', 'paver')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/paver/", line 816, in main
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/paver/", line 785, in _launch_pavement
    execfile(environment.pavement_file, mod.__dict__)
  File "", line 16, in <module>
    from turbogears.finddata import find_package_data
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/turbogears/", line 9, in <module>
    from turbogears.config import update_config
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/turbogears/", line 4, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 690, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 592, in resolve
    raise VersionConflict(dist,req) # XXX put more info here
pkg_resources.VersionConflict: (CherryPy 3.2.2 (/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages), Requirement.parse('CherryPy<3.0')

Toshio Replied today giving me a fix, so I was able to move on further. the fix was to copy paver script on the local folder and replace the version and run the paver script locally.

$ cp /usr/bin/paver paver.local
$ sed 's/__requires__ = .*/__requires__ = ["Paver", "CherryPy < 3.0"]/' < paver.local > paver
$ ./paver build --install-conf=`pwd` --install-data=`pwd` --install-sbin=`pwd`

However, now, the pkgdb-sync-yum command is broken. I have asked him again on github and waiting for his reply.

[root@localhost server-scripts]# chmod 755 pkgdb-sync-yum
[root@localhost server-scripts]# ./pkgdb-sync-yum update -h
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./pkgdb-sync-yum", line 51, in
import pkg_resources
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 2655, in
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 648, in require
needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 546, in resolve
raise DistributionNotFound(req)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: fedora-packagedb

I moved on with the steps ignoring that step and found myself having 500 error when trying to access the website. I am hoping that it is connected to the update.

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. If it doesn't, it is possible that you might be missing some codecs as I installed them from nux and epel repos earlier.

Virtual Machine doesn't start, stuck at "PCI2.10 PnP PMM"

Another day another problem, I was setting up a lab environment, after creating a Virtual Machine using Virtual Machine Manager, My machine would get stuck here and never move:

SeaBIOSversion 1.9.1-5.el7_3.2) Machine UUID ... iPXE ( 00:03.0 C980 PCI2.10 PnP PMM

The error seemed to suggest there was something wrong with my NIC card as the Virtual Machine would boot if i disabled Network. I even tried it with a new NIC card but i kept getting stuck here.

Turned out that I didn't enable Virtualization in BIOS. Please make sure Virtualization is enabled before creating a Virtual Machine.

I am still wondering how I was able to create a VM without a Network.
