  3. Sam Ruby: RadRails/Eclipse on Breezy - take 1

    Sam Ruby: RadRails/Eclipse on Breezy - take 1: “Here is a quick fix for running Eclipse as it is installed by apt-get. This issue seems to be that the feature.xml file is in an unexpected directory. I went to /usr/lib/eclipse/features and typed:
    sudo ln -s org.eclipse.rcp.source_3.1. 1 org.eclipse.rcp_3.1.1 After this, I was able to run the updates successfully.” ;) Happy Ubuntu …


  4. mount reiserfs

    Well… I was gettin crazy with this so I decided to share the knowledge.
    I decided to add two new SATA hard drive to my friend’s pc and configure a raid system.
    After creating the RAID via YaST I cant mount that via fstab to allow normal users read and write on that.
    Well, I was searchin a solution about options to add in fstab but that wasn’t the right way. To do that just change permissions on the mounted drive and reiserfs will remeber that… EASY AS FUCK! summary:
    in /etc/fstab —>
    /dev/md0 /media/300gb reiserfs auto,users,user_xattr,exec 1 2
    <— 777 permissions on mounted /media/300gb happy suse
