At work I used Centos 6.4 to convert a large Subversion repo to Git. This required a VM with a 100Gb disk, more than my old iMac could deal with, to the point where I could not update to newer OS version or even run iTunes to update apps. [dchwalis@imac ~]$ df -h Filesystem Size… Continue reading Compacting a VirtualBox VM Centos disk
We use Centos as a VM for development. Intellij IDEA was complaining about the 1.7.1 version from the Centos distro, requiring 22.214.171.124. Picky. So I grabbed the git source: $ git clone https://github.com/git/git $ cd git $ make … http-push.c:920: error: ‘xml_cdata’ undeclared (first use in this function) http-push.c:921: warning: implicit declaration of function ‘XML_Parse’… Continue reading Building Git 1.8 on Centos 6
My goto diff tool on Windows is the open-source WinMerge. On Linux, Ubuntu has an installable KDiff3, a member of the Qt-based KDE family of tools. At work we are using Centos 6 as our dev VM, and no installable KDiff3 is available. So the README says to $ ./configure kde4 and it should build… Continue reading Building KDiff3 on Centos 6

Tried in my Centos 6 VM from work. gen a project: Error angular You don’t seem to have a generator with the name karma:app installed. You can see available generators with… Continue reading Yeoman

I started up my Ubuntu 12.04 VM in VMWare Workstation 6. It has been a while, so some update messages popped up. Sure. Afterwards, it rebooted and hung there. I should have left it; I force shutdowned and restarted. Now we are at a shell, where I can login, but nought else. Sigh. Some Googling.… Continue reading Ubuntu 12.04 boots to shell after icky update. Discuss.
Trying to convert a SVN repo to Git. The Ruby version works, but does not commit all the files with the correct CRLF chars – seems to ignore the global settings. svn2git http://svnhost.xx.com/svn/repo/mobile/circdesk-android/trunk –rootistrunk –verbose > x I can reconvert the repo afterwards to fix the endings (see this) but it makes diffing before and… Continue reading Building svn2git from Qt

After some Googling I found an article by Nick Sergeant and he basically had the same routine. But he dumped 1&1. I can’t afford to now. So I tried… Continue reading Thanks 1&1 Ya Dopes for not including Subversion
