Google Apps for Domains

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

I spend way too much time and effort tweaking my SpamAssassin settings on my server just so I can get my email and spam situation manageable.
Anyways, I’m getting sick of the trouble so I am trying out Google Apps for Domains. This allows me to use my own domain name, but using Gmail for […]

Xine Crashing in Fedora 10

Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

If you are using Xine from RPMFusion and experiencing crashing immediately after loading in Fedora 10, it is probably due to this bug.
Quick work-around is to use Alsa instead of PulseAudio. Open a shell and launch Xine as follows:

To make this setting stick, do the following:
Right-Click in the Xine window […]

Adding MP3 support to Rythmbox (GTK […]

Daylight Savings Time Change RedHat 8.0

Monday, March 12th, 2007

In the past I’ve never actually changed my time settings on my computer, usually when booting into Linux the NTP (Network Time Protocol) server does the trick. However the local operating system (whether Linux or Windows) usually retains timezone settings in some way. I do not know if the RedHat/Fedora method is consistent with other […]

NTFS No Longer “Forbidden” in Fedora

It appears as though NTFS support in Fedora is no longer considered to be a “Forbidden Item“. A request has been made to include NTFS-3G into Fedora Extras.
This has always seemed silly to me. The kernel has had NTFS read-only support for years. The kernel source shipped by Fedora includes the source to the driver. […]
