RPM SIgning lab - SBR600

Followed the tutorial on the website:

executed the command gpg --key-gen,
it asked me a bunch of questions and at the end it created the RSA public key.
pub   2048R/FA60C533 2013-11-17 [expires: 2014-01-16]

after this, i just navigated to where I had my RPMS and signed it using this command

#rpm --addsign less-451-1.fc18.i686.rpm
Enter pass phrase:
Pass phrase is good.

here is a link to my signed RPM

[hitman@localhost i686]$ rpm --addsign grep-2.9-1.fc18.i686.rpm
Enter pass phrase:
Pass phrase is good.
[hitman@localhost i686]$

Here is a link to my signed RPMs:


Created the gpg key by issuing the command

gpg --export --armour > gpgkey.txt

gpgkey.txt can be viewed here

GPG is a very handy tool, probably the only tool i know that can encrypt files, maybe there are others, however, this was pretty easy to use.

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.
