Pkgdb2 - 5 hours of head scratching till 6 in the morning

Thursday night after I finished my exams and sat down to install pkgdb2, I made some progress but got stuck in getting a database together to test the pkgdb2 with. Luckily, I found Pierre- the package author, online 1 in the morning.

I started asking him questions and we were trying to resolve why the template database that comes with the clone, not working with this installation. We checked all the important python scripts in a spree of "fpaste" then figured out that my mod_wsgi file is pointing towards the clone and not the installed pkgdb2 directory. So we fixed that and I installed Sqlite manager to see if the database is good and it was. Then we were checking the httpd logs and it still says "table Package" not found. We know from the trouble shooting "print" statements in the script that it is pointing towards the right database but still it gave the same error. Even Pierre said "Now even I don't know what is wrong" :)

Anyhow, I installed A new VM to conduct a fresh installation from scratch and see if it works this time.

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.
