The default application for bittorrent files appears to be Transmission in Fedora 17. I prefer Azureus, but there is no obvious way to set Azureus as the default app.
I googled a little and came up with this:
# echo "application/x-bittorrent=fedora-Azureus.desktop" >> /usr/share/applications/defaults.list
I wanted to install a Fedora 13 machine as a paravirtual domu guest on our CentOS 5.5, xen 3.4.2 host. I also wanted to provision it using koan/cobbler. I ran into a few problems along the way, but I got there in the end!
I use the toggl time-tracking service to keep track of the hours I work for my various clients.
toggl make available desktop clients for Windows, Mac, & Linux, but the Linux packages are in .deb format for Ubuntu and, until recently, they did not provide x86_64 packages.
toggl recently released the desktop client as open source so I grabbed it and have built an RPM.
RPM (Fedora 12, x86_64): TogglDesktop-2.5.1-1.fc12.x86_64.rpm
I wanted to install racadm on my local (non-Dell) workstation running Fedora 11. I tried installing via the repos as per the instructions, but without success. I eventually managed by downloading manually:
yum localinstall mgmtst-racadm-6.1.0-648.i386.rpm
The next problem was that racadm wouldn't run – it failed with the error:
ERROR: Failed to initialize transport
Running under strace showed that it seemed to be having problems finding a suitable ssl library – probably because racadm is i686 and I'm running it on x86_64. Using yum provides I determined that a suitable ssl lib was shipped with Adobe Reader, installed in /opt/Adobe/ on my workstation.
The following couple of symlinks fixed it:
ln -s ../../opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8 /lib/i686/
ln -s ../../opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /lib/i686/
