Some Progress FINALLY! Fedora Package Database - should have been my release 0.2

For so long I had been stuck in getting the Fedora Package Database running. I deployed the test instance for my first release but could not do much after that as I was unable to install the Fedora Package Database. I tried to get in contact with Pierre the author of pkgdb2, he was replying on github but could not get a hold of him on IRC.

Anyhow, I sat determined today to do it myself. Started to analyze the output that I was getting when I was trying to run the scritpt. It was giving me an import error flask.ext.fas_openid module not found. I researched and found some reference to it in github on python-fedora and saw the same guys who manage pkgdb1 and 2 discussing something about that module there.

I uninstalled python-fedora and rebuilt it, but this time I got the source from github because I thought they have the most update version and I was right. I installed python-fedora from there and I stopped getting that error and my beloved pkgdb2 built successfully. Here is a screenshot of the new deployment. Notice that it is running on the IP address with the proper alias this time and not a random port number. Actually I configured the alias to be pkgdb, I can change it to pkgdb2 or anything else according to our requirements.

Now, the only thing I am missing is a database to test this deployment with. I am currently working on trying to get Pierre's script working to convert the previous packagedb database to match the new schema, I will try to use that and blog if it works.

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.

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.
