Update: Microsoft has created the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool to make this very easy. I used this guide as a set of directions http://kurtsh.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!DA410C7F7E038D!1665.entry The steps are really longer than necessary. You need to: 1. Get a fast 4GB or larger USB Thumbdrive. 2. run cmd.exe and enter the following commands followed ...

You need to preseed the debconf database. debconf needs to be installed first before you try this. The version of mysql and ubuntu could change the line: echo mysql-server mysql-server/root_password select PASSWORD | debconf-set-selections echo mysql-server mysql-server/root_password_again select PASSWORD | debconf-set-selections For example you made ...

(Note: ~ translates as /home/user in this post) Personally, I put all of my custom-made system scripts in /usr/local/bin and all of my personal bash scripts in ~/bin. Very few programs I install place themselves in /usr/local/bin directory so it's not very cluttered and it was already in the $PATH variable on most of my machines. To add /usr/local/bin to ...

You should be able to use setup.exe w/o the GUI: setup.exe -q -n -N -d -R c:\cygwin -s http://yourFavoriteMirror \ -l c:\localPackageDir -P <comma-separated list of packages to install> This is from cygwin mailing list (and follow up post)

aptitude considers packages that are installed due to dependencies to be "automatically" installed. With that knowledge, you can quickly construct an aptitude search pattern to list all installed packages that where not automatically installed: aptitude search "?and(?installed, ?not(?automatic))" Alternatively, using short form for the search terms: ...

to instal a DMG you can do this: cd ~/Desktop curl -O http://darwinports.opendarwin.org/downloads/DarwinPorts-1.2-10.4.dmg hdiutil attach DarwinPorts-1.2-10.4.dmg cd /Volumes/DarwinPorts-1.2/ sudo installer -pkg DarwinPorts-1.2.pkg -target "/" hdiutil detach /Volumes/DarwinPorts-1.2/ In a nutshell, this goes to your Desktop folder grabs ...

libapache2-mod-fastcgi can be found in multiverse. If I remember correctly, a default installation of Ubuntu used not to enable multiverse (but should nowadays). Maybe its disabled on your system and you'll have to add it to the list of repositories (as easy as editing /etc/apt/sources.list and appending multiverse after main or using the graphical packet ...

You shouldn't be having these problems... I tried to search for nice, canned binaries of a current version of ImageMagick. I couldn't find any that didn't have odd prerequisites... So I spun up a CentOS 6.3 virtual machine and built the newest ImageMagick SRPM file. You may want to enable the RepoForge repository (formerly RPMForge) as well. The build went ...

I found two problems with the accepted answer: It assumes the usb drive is disk 1 for DISKPART. This can be resolved by using the LIST DISK command prior to SELECT DISK # to determine the correct disk number. The usb drive did not appear as a bootable device to the target machine. This can be fixed by running the bootsect utility off the Windows ...

There is a tool (YUMI) to achieve this. I think, it is fastest and painless way of preparing a (multi)bootable usb. You can put many systems (Windows, Linux, HBCD etc.) into one flash drive. And you can also use an external drive.

Putting a package on hold does not work (very well) to achieve this. It does not cover all tools in a satisfactory manner. For example aptitude on command-line completely ignores the previous invocation of aptitude hold somepackage, installing a package also installs the dependencies even if they are on hold. The best way in my opinion is to create a fake ...

I agree with the sentiment of the other answers here: Although it may be possible to install Ubuntu remotely on RHEL 3.4, you are likely going to be treading on some very thin ice. I think the biggest problem you may have is the age of the kernel and libc on the existing system. Is that a 2.4.x-series kernel? If so, I'm not sure you'll be able to pull this ...

On Windows NT-derived operating systems, you can find the installation date at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallDate The date is stored as a number of second elapsed since January 1, 1970. For Linux installs on ext2 or ext3, I suppose you could get the creation date of the filesystem using the tune2fs command: ...

Running PHP as a module is usually more efficient, but means all scripts run under the same user account (what-ever account Apache runs as) which can pose security concerns in a shared environment. CGI is much slower as it starts a new PHP processes for every request that needs one, but can be configured to run each script as the user that owns it which can ...

It's rather complicated. On ubuntu, I'd install as much as possible from apt, rather than compiling your own. If you do need to compile your own, the general Unix guidelines are here, and Ubuntu follows debian packaging guidelines, which can be found here.

The virtual CD/DVD mount point is clearly reserving D:, can you mount an .ISO as a virtual CD/DVD then right click on it in Disk Management, you should be able to change the drive letter it's assigned to - just move it to something other than D: and then try your partitioning action again (although the same trick may work on your existing E:).

I was wrong on my first answer. My first suggestion to you was to make a "version lie" shim for your application. But you can't, because you're using a managed code application. I'm not saying you can't write API hooks for .NET applications, but appcompat shim support seems to be a lot spottier for managed apps. Application shims implement API redirects so ...

Generally speaking, the only reason you would want to run CGI is in a shared environment. This allows you to have an suEXEC style (see: suPHP) arrangement where scripts are only executed as the owner's UID/GID and have limited permission to anything else on the filesystem. Otherwise mod_php is far more efficient and often easier to debug.

You should be able to ignore this - this is simply how CentOS labels its 64-bit packages, which work on both AMD and Intel processors that are 64-bit capable. Any quirky behavior would not be caused by this - there are no AMD or Intel specific packages in any Linux distribution, as far as I'm aware; just 32 or 64 bit

The way to achieve your goal, without having the ability to boot from cd/network/external device, is to use the existing installation to install a fresh OS to another filesystem and then, once you're done, tell the bootloader to boot to the new filesystem. This was much more common in times past (perhaps 10 years or more ago) than it is now, and if you ...

I've been searching the web and one solution seems to be making a kickstart script that will intall only the necessary packages. But I find this difficult and have several doubts about how to maintain the system dependencies afterwards. Making a kickstart file is not so hard: look in /root of one of your installed servers for a file called ...

Standard Installer Command-Line Options /quiet Quiet display option. The installer runs an installation without displaying a user interface.

KIckstart is fine. If you want to make sure certain packages are NOT installed you can list them in the list of packages/groups to install, preceeded by a minus ('-') sign. e.g. %packages @base core-utils -httpd to make sure apache does not get installed Then in the %post section you can run commands such as chkconfig to switch off services you don't ...

boot your Mac from the Install DVD open Screen Sharing and connect to the IP of your Mac (it's IP will supplied by DHCP, you might have to look it up on your router/DHCP server — or use "arp -a" to locate it) for VNC login and password, leave the username blank, but type in the first 8 digits of your Mac's hardware serial number I have tested this with ...

You've got a couple of options. All of them involve using the Windows XP Deployment Tools, so make sure you download that. The first option is to create an answer file using the above named tools. Slipstream the answer file into a Windows XP install CD, boot from the CD, and let it do its thing Install Windows XP on a single computer. Install any ...

The S100R5 does have what is called a "fake-RAID" - it is not the same kind as the "proper hardware-RAID" controller where you would see a complete abstraction of your RAID containers / volumes. Instead, fake-RAID relies on operating system drivers to do the work needed for drive synchronization and eventual checksumming. VMWare's drivers will not support ...

You can install an individual package using the pkg_add command, like this: pkg_add -r <package> The -r option asks pkg_add to fetch the package over the network. For example, to install bash: pkg_add -r bash As with many things FreeBSD, this is documented in the FreeBSD handbook, specifically in the section titled Using the Packages System. ...

Did you make sure that you created the ~/Library/LaunchAgents directory first? You may have just ended up copying /usr/local/Cellar/mongodb/1.6.3-x86_64/org.mongodb.mongod.plist to a file called ~/Library/LaunchAgents Try ls -la ~/Library/LaunchAgents and see what the output is. It should look like: [why@why ~]$ ls -la ~/Library/LaunchAgents total 40 ...
