Darcs - easy VCS alternative to CVS

Post date: June 21, 2005, 23:06 Category: Network Views: 3566 Comments
Tutorial quote: This is a brief introduction to Darcs - a distributed SCM system and a healthy alternative to CVS. It will show you an easy, more modern approach to VCS. The project I contribute to (formerly XWT, renamed to Vexi) has greatly benefitted from moving to Darcs from CVS because now we can make rapid progress without the fear of making bad commits to the server or the server being down. People can code and pull other's code at their own convenience.

Build your own Gentoo rescue LiveCD and USBStick

Post date: June 20, 2005, 04:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 4827 Comments
Tutorial quote: I've written this how-to after trying to find a boot medium for my home gateway machine which could be used for system rescues and even installing Gentoo. Why not use the standard Gentoo Live CD you ask? Well my gateway machine is one of those small, silent and cool running mini-itx machines (http://www.mini-itx.com) and has no CDROM or floppy drive. I needed some way of getting Gentoo on there and some way of easily rescuing it when the need arises. The good news is that these VIA mini-tix machines are USB bootable and I much preferred the idea of having a little USB drive/stick that I could push into any USB bootable machine and boot into Linux rather than having to set up a PXE networked boot environment (which is also supported).

As being powerful inevitably implies being complex, this feature is documented in lengthy and exhaustive documents in great details. These documents however can prove to be excessive in their length and language to users who are looking for simple solutions for simple questions. This guide aims to give a short and practical introduction on how to solve some common issues that users tend to experience on an everyday basis.
