Changing samba password using Django

leave a comment »

Necessity is the mother of all invention they say and so was my case for developing a simple front end for changing samba passwords using django. I am not sure if this is the safest way of doing it and would love if someone would help me in implementing this better. I have listed out the procedure of development and the scripts. This might just well be used as a script. Read the rest of this entry »

I started programming on Python a couple of months back and am currently shifting my web application stack to Django. Django is simply amazing, with the power of Python it just does wonders. Well on the road of migration I desperately needed an IDE. Read the rest of this entry »

Its been donkey’s years since I have written anything at all. Comments have poured out like usual and I was not there to answer them. Of course the first thing that comes up to one mind would be “What has he been doing?” Read the rest of this entry »

Synchronizing Nokia E series with Fedora

with 8 comments

I used to own a Nokia E61i and had several attempts to synchronize it with my computer, which of course runs Fedora. All were in vain, I never got to synchronize it. But after my Dad presented me with a E63 recently, I decided I had to get the synchronization done. Well how hard can it be, I thought, google it and I should be able to get some idea. And in fact it was pretty simple. Read the rest of this entry »

My experience with RAID on CentOS

with 3 comments

One of my servers went down recently. Another chance for my brother to dig on Linux. “Linux sucks” he says but don’t be fooled by the statement. He is a big fan boy of Mac but is not a Linux hater, and in so many situations has recommended Linux. He just loves bugging me. Well back to the story. The power supply seemed to have given problems and the hard disk on which the root laid got corrupted and there by the system crashed. For those Linux skeptics, hardware problem not software. So now I had to come up with a solution to see that if the hard disk failed I should be able to boot of with another. RAID!! Read the rest of this entry »

Increasing popularity of Fedora

leave a comment »

I have been watching distrowatch.org for quite some time and from the time Fedora 11 was released I kept looking at the page hit ranking. For a long time Fedora was ranking 4th. And after the release of 11 I saw the growth. It quickly moved to the third and rapidly to the second. The page hits have been increasing ever since.

I have heard people complaining out loud that 11 is just too buggy and that it was bad publicity for Fedora. Bad publicity? Come on folks beside the few bugs the features are just awesome. I just love the new volume control, KDE 4.2, presto plugin and the faster boot.

I do have difficulties at times but I guess that is the price I pay for having the most bleeding edge software. Fedora is definitely becoming more popular with every release and so is its user friendliness.
