Release 0.1 - service sbrproject restart

The Main Goal

My main project was to port fedpkg to pidora so fedpkg would work with Pidora packages. For that I needed to install Fedora Package Database as fedpkg communicates with it and then modify it for Pidora packages.

Release 0.1

My goal for release 0.1 was to install Fedora Package Database(pkgdb) and make walk-through of it. I stumbled upon a few issues and was communicating with the package maintainers, they said we will only be supporting pkgdb for 2 months now and we are currently working on pkgdb2 which would be ready in 2 months. The instance of pkgdb2 that they have currently has a few bugs and is not ready to work with fedpkg.

What Now?

After a group meeting with Chris Tyler and package maintainers, we decided that I should proceed with the installation of pkgdb2, which, although is not ready yet, will be ready soon and maintained. It would not make sense to deploy a package which will go out of date very soon. Moreover, it would also not make sense to deploy pkgdb1 for Pidora as Fedora Package Database has several uses.

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.

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.
