Having fun with CSSH

Posted by putxi on April 24, 2007

I’ve just dicovered CSSH. This little ugly tool can be found in ubuntu, and I presume it would be found on all others.

CSSH stans for Central SSH and its meant for cluster administration. In an environment where you have quite a few servers with almost exactly the same configuration you can type any command in the main window and its typed to every host at the same time. Read the rest of this entry »

VMWare and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn incompatibilites

Posted by putxi on April 24, 2007

Last week I upgraded my work computer to the new Feisty. Of course such an upgrade installed a new kernel and it wasn’t supported by vmware…Today I’ve got time and I found this page (VMWare and Ubuntu Feisty) a comenteer says to apply a patch to vmware, I did it and the modules compiled well.

Installing Banshee in Ubuntu Edgy

Posted by putxi on March 16, 2007

Today I was willing to listen to my music, but I have it on my iPod, the last.fm player didn’t worked and Rythmbox just sucks from my point of view. I found something new that seems its rocking the music players. The Banshee project Music Management and Playback for Gnome.

Right now I’m installing it I haven’t test it but they sell it well in their site. iPod – mp3 player integration, smart lists, last.fm plugin, internet radio and of course listen to your own music, sounds quite good.

For the installation I have follow the instructions from their Ubuntu Installation Guide just using deb http://directhex.mfgames.com/ ./ as the repository because the one they say have moved to it.

I’ll tell my experience with it later.
