Successfull Deployment of Fedora Package Database(pkgdb2) on ireland(could be my release 0.3 if I cannot get help to test it with a database)

As I said in my last blog post that I would try it on a new VM. I installed Fedora 19 from scratch and this time I did not install pkgdb2 under python/site-scripts, however, I ran it directly from clone to see if that makes a difference. Unfortunately, it did not make any difference. We know for sure that it is hitting the right database but somehow the connection is not opening up properly. I have left a message for Pierre on github and I am online since about 36 hours with very little sleep, waiting to catch him on IRC.

I got access to ireland on Friday, and was told by Chris to deploy the the instance on there. Therefore, however much installation was completed, I successfully set it up Fedora Package Database on Also, I set it up on virtual-host running on port 8080. If anybody wants to check out the deployment they can do so on this url:

Keep in mind, as there is no database to test with, if you click on any link you will get a 500 internal server error as the config files are not properly communicating with the sample sqlite database. Here is a screen-shot of the instance:


In my desperation of testing my achievement with a database, I even converted the sample database to mysql and tried to test it with it. I thought I had to change only a couple of "dbi_url" lines, however, there was much to change in the core python scripts that I do not possess knowledge of.

If I could not test it with a database by tomorrow 6pm then I will just document the process of pkgdb2 deployment(as far as I could deploy it).

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.
