#oracle #gnu/#linux 6 #firefox #browser 22 #yum repo

oracle gnu/linux 6 can use firefox browser 22 from the remi yum repo

# wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
# yum localinstall remi-release-6.rpm
# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo
set enabled = 1
# yum update firefox

 

#oracle #gnu/#linux 6 alternative #xfce #webkit #browser

if you are fed up with firefox 17 crashing on your oracle linux 6 xfce desktop and since google have broken chromium on centos 6 and red hat 6 you might like to try the midori webkit based browser instead

howto setup 64-bit #oracle #gnu/#linux 6 to run 32-bit apps such as the #android #sdk

to setup 64-bit oracle gnu/linux 6 to run 32-bit apps such as the android sdk you first need to install some 32 bit librarys

# yum install glibc.i686 glibc-devel.i686 libstdc++.i686 ncurses-libs

this should prevent you getting errors such as

bash: 
android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb: 
/lib/ld-linux.so.2: 
bad ELF interpreter: 
No such file or directory

and

android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb: 
error while loading shared libraries: 
libncurses.so.5: 
cannot open shared object file: 
No such file or directory

oracle cloudworld london excel 2013 review

oracle cloudworld london excel 2013 – the complete review

i had a fantastic day today at #oracle #cloudworld @ #london #excel and now i finally know which cloud to choose

it was interesting to contrast it with last weeks #salesforce #cloudforce but also unfair since catering for 2,000 punters is clearly easier than catering for 20,000

talk of the day was from @alanlepo but i heard good things about the mersk and the predictable peformance talks

just like the salesforce #cloudforce event the oracle #cloudworld event was very social media network and business media network focused but 10/10 for oracle actually displaying LIVE twitter feeds on their VDUs

at the end of the day it turns out i got the same number of clicks on my tweeted photo link http://goo.gl/uZGzx as on my oracle free 30 day trial link http://goo.gl/g1uAe and @thebizcouch even think there may have been a record breaking 2000 tweets from the event

if you are a cloud developer the cloud choice is now very EASY !

just choose what sort of cloud you and how long you need it for and if the oracle offer of a 30 day eval of any type of cloud is not long enough for you i suggest you try one of the following:

  • IAAS – Amazon AWS cloud – ONE YEAR
  • PAAS – Red Hat OpenShift cloud – INDEFINITE
  • SAAS – SalesForce cloud – INDEFINITE
