Debian Creating .deb-Packages With Checkinstall
Post date: April 12, 2005, 17:04 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 981 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Checkinstall is a nice tool to create simple .deb-packages that you can use in your local network (e.g. if you have to install the same piece of software on multiple computers running Debian). It lets you compile and install software from the sources like before, but with the difference that you end up with a simple Debian package which also means that you can easily uninstall the software you just compiled by running dpkg -r!

I will demonstrate the use of checkinstall by compiling and installing the anti-virus software ClamAV on a Debian system.

This howto is meant as a practical guide; it does not cover the theoretical backgrounds. They are treated in a lot of other documents in the web.

Debian Creating a Wiki with kwiki
Post date: December 17, 2005, 22:12 Category: Software Views: 1018 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Wikis are simple interactive websites which are extremely easy to use for storing easily updated text content. Using a Wiki you can easily create a lot of content with hyperlinks between them. Debian has packaged several different Wiki systems and here we'll look at installing just one of them: KWiki.

Wikis have become familiar to many people thanks to the popularity of large sites such as Wikipedia and can be very useful for creating collaborative websites.

Whilst there are many Wiki packages included in the Debian GNU/Linux distribution I've always had a soft spot for KWiki due to its simplicity, Perl nature, and low requirements.

Installing the software under Debian is very simple and we will show how to setup a new installation using the Debian Apache2 webserver package.
CentOS Creating A Local Yum Repository (CentOS)
Post date: June 16, 2007, 22:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 2397 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Sometimes it can be handy to set up your own repository to prevent from downloading the remote repository over and over again. This tutorial shows how to create a CentOS mirror for your local network. If you have to install multiple systems in your local network then all needed packages can be downloaded over the fast LAN connection, thus saving your internet bandwidth.
Debian Cleaning up a Debian GNU/Linux system
Post date: November 25, 2006, 08:11 Category: System Views: 1559 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: You arrive at a Debian GNU/Linux server which has some history of neglection. Let's suppose someone else neglected it but if your new-year resolution is to stop neglecting your beloved server, this applies as well.

One form of neglection is to install, install, install and never un-install any package. The common utility to perform installation and un-installation of packages is apt-get which adds to the problem because it doesn't have automatic removal of non-needed dependences.

That means that when phpMyAdmin was installed it also installed Apache, PHP and ton of other packages. phpMyAdmin was removed when it was no longer needed but Apache, PHP and the ton of packages remain there.

Aptitude to the rescue.
Debian Rolling your own Debian packages (part 1)
Post date: January 21, 2006, 06:01 Category: Software Views: 1048 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: This two-part article explains how to make a Debian package of simple piece of software, presumably something you have written yourself. Although building a new package is more complex than rebuilding one or having one generated, the idea is that it is actually surprisingly simple to create basic Debian packages. In fact, if you can make software install into a temporary installation tree, you're already 90% done! This text provides a quick alternative to the more comprehensive Debian New Maintainers' Guide. Only knowledge of Makefiles and the basic Debian package tools is assumed.

The first part of this article will continue with some preliminary information about Debian packages. In the second part we walk through a concrete packaging example.
Unix+clones OpenOffice 2.0: Creating database forms
Post date: December 13, 2005, 12:12 Category: Software Views: 1187 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: ather than having a shallow affair with OpenOffice 2.0, we can use it to get a little more intimate with the data. We can even badger it into forming relations. Why force your database tables into a marriage with OpenOffice? Because, as with human relations, life -- and data -- are pretty meaningless without tight connections.

This tip on creating forms is part of a series I'm writing on OpenOffice.org 2.0 Base. So far, I've discussed making a plain database from scratch, creating tables, entering data using the table editor and a simple form and creating a view of a table or tables.

Let's start off with a description of what table relations are anyway, then discuss how to create a data entry form like this one, which has data from two related tables.
Debian Installing Xen 3.0 upon Debian Unstable, with a custom Kernel
Post date: December 29, 2005, 07:12 Category: System Views: 1743 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Recently we demonstrated the process of installing a binary release of Xen 3.0 on Sarge, since the packages on Debian Unstable are not yet available for Xen 3.0 we're now going to look at installing it via the packages provided by Ralph Passgang. This also includes building a custom Xen kernel from source.

The advantage to building the Xen kernel from source is that you can add, or remove, drivers - so the kernel is utterly customised for your system.
