Instaling.....

Instaling a linux server right now..... A Mandrake 7.2, which will be the mirror of the development server I have at the office.

Today I've downloaded the source code for the LiveJournal and I'm going to try to install it here, in the inner network and play a little with it....

Another thing I would like to leave installed today but won't be possible to finish today is the whole setup of the virtual servers for the current working project.... Tomorrow or I will take the hard disk with me and transfer locally the configuration files, or will bake tar.gzs of them and transfer them with the laptop.... I don't know, yet.

But today I still have to write down some of the ideas I have for improvment of the work in the office, mainly in the documentation area.
It's quite fun to develop code and make thing work but the documentation process that is necessary must go along and it is quite time consuming.
But IT MUST BE DONE, mainly if there is not only one person working on the development but more than one...

Well, I must go and finish the replacements I've been doing to things here, at home, taking account Feng Shui instructions.
So, now I'm facing East / Southeast and, in the imediate time I ended up already gaining the view over the Tagus River!....

I have to go now, but will be back as soon as I can.
Anyway, a very good day to you all, here in LJ land!

WTF?!...

Damn it!

Exec of ldconfig failed?! No such file or directory?!
But that is on RAMdisk!

Let's try to go for a minimal instalation.... After I've ended it, I can install the rest....

    WTF?!

P.S. ...

Can it be from the CD-ROm palyer?
Doing a standard instal, instead an expert one, with the minimum number of packages....
Just hope it goes till the end.....

    Fingers crossed...

A new tryout....

I've left the computer disconnected for a while as the problem seems to be more ferquent now. Probably has to do with some component or subsystem heating.....

It seems that the CD-ROM fails to read the CD and then the installation error shortly fopllows.
So now, I'm trying for a minimal instalation not from the CD copies from which I tryied before but from a set of 2 silver CDs with Mandrake 7.2.

Let's see how it goes; right now is already 32% and 86 packages left to be installed....

    With my fingers crossed....

First stage done....

It worked.
So now I have a simple Linux system but now, it boots from the harddisk and now I can install the other packages one by one, if necessary....

Well, I'm going to have dinner and will be back again, latter.
