  1. Hi, Can any one please tell me what application I need to use in order to burn a cd/dvd on Fedora Core 5 32+ bit os? I am new to it. Do I need to download and install any open source application that works with Fedora 5 core? If yes then what are the steps to achieve so. Many thanks.....
  2. Hi, I am on Fedora Core 5 32+ bit. I wonder if there is any command that can tell you when Linux was installed & updated on the computer with time and date. Or any other software/application like MySQL or PHP was installed and updated? Is there any kind of log available that I can access? Thanks........
  3. Hope this is of any help to Linux enthsiastics... http://howtos.linux.com/howtos/HOWTO-INDEX/index.shtml Thanks
  4. Fully agreed............... Very interesting thoughts sir. People like you should also be listened to after all you have seen the programming evolution since the 70s itself. Let us hope that a good and patient programmer gets his due respect some day. Very right sir. After all we do not see doctors retire in the middle of the night if a younger fellow comes and joins his team. You have given a very good and clear message to all of us here.
  5. Hi, I have been hearing a lot from an IT student friend of mine about the increasing hatred towards programming of any kind taught at the university and efforts to look for something else in the IT field itself as a career option. Can any one who is experienced enough tell me as why this is a shocking reality? Why universities are failing to encourage students to become professional programmers? If an IT student is not interested in being a programmer what else are the options? What is the most preferred option of all in terms of what you have seen in your professional career? Thanks.

  8. Hi, I want to learn oracle on Fedora core 5 32+ bit os that I am using at the moment, but can't not find any useful installation guides (Fedora specific) on the net. Can any one please help me out? Thanks.
  9. Hi, I am using Fedora Core 5 32+ bit as my OS. I want to have a good list of different types (image editing, security, text editors etc.) of free/open source softwares for Linux OS, that I can just download, install and use without much fuss. I searched and came across these 2 sites, but are there any more standard ones that I can just visit and make sure that the applications listed there are stable releases and reliable in every sense. Here are the 2 sites in question: 1.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ftware_packages 2.http://www.linux.org/apps/ I am learning Linux as of now and want to try a few open source/free apps. Thanks. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  10. Hi, I was wondering whether PHP being a server side and kind of scripting languages, can be or being used for application/software development just like any other regular programming languages such as c/c++ or java. As far as I understand it is meant for web use only and thus can only be interpreted and used with a web browser. Is it possible to create programs/application with PHP that just can work as any other desktop programs and can be installed as well without involving the browser at all? I am not much aware of PHP's real capabilities so hopefully some senior PHP programmers can help me here. Thanks.
  11. Hi, I am using Fedora Core 5 32+bit as my os but not using a particular development tool as of now and just sticking to the normal text editor called the KWrite. I am learning C++ and MySQL on my own and want to know if the connection between the two is possible. People say it is and one of my previous question on this very forum also gave me the hint that and I am on the right track by going for the installation of a C++ wrapper called MySQL++ from here. http://tangentsoft.net/mysql++/ After downloading the file mysql++-2.2.0.tar.gz (2.6 MB, 2007.01.23) and also untaring/unzipping it on the desktop, a folder called mysql++-2.2.0 was created on the desktop. I went into the folder and read all the readme/install files, but I am no where near a successful installation due to my lack of proper guide to the installation of the same. Can you please help. I have been working on this for quite a while now. Just a few pieces of step by step instruction and the rest will be fine. Thanks. [moved from Terminal Shell Commands, etc by spinynorman]
  12. Hi, I want to remove Fedora core 5 32 bit os on my pc and install Win XP. Can any one help me please as when I insert the Win XP cd and boot the pc with it there comes a message on the screen like "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" then the computer hangs for a long time nothing happens. Any idea why it happens? The cd is already working fine and not damanged or anything. The pc has only one hard disk and only Fedora on it with no partition. Thanks.
  13. Hi, I am using Fedora core 5 32 bit Linux. I am using the Kdevelop IDE/interface to run my first C++ program. Being new to the IDE, all I do first, is click on the Project menu and then select New Project. Then click on the All Projects tab. This shows two options C and C++. So I select C++ and it expands giving more options underneath it such as CMake Based Project, Embedded, GTK, KDE, Kdevelop, QMake Project, wxWidgets. I select the QMake Project option and it expands giving some more options underneath such as Simple ClanLib Application, Simple Hello World Program, Simple ncurses Hello World Program etc. I chose "Simple Hello World Program". Then I give an application name like "first" and location of the file. As soon as I do this, a new program called main.cpp is automatically written by Kdevelop and when I try to execute it, a dialog box cames with a message saying "There is no Makefile in this directory and no configure script for this project. Run automake and friends and configure first?" I click on "Run them" and a new windows opens with an output of the main.cpp file with the following message: Hello World. Press enter to continue... I do so and close down the Kdevelop ide. Then I restart the IDE and click on File menu and chose New and creat a new file with a name "two" and added the following code into it. #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() // Most important part of the program! { int age; // Need a variable... cout<<"Please input your age: "; // Asks for age cin>> age; // The input is put in age cin.ignore(); // Throw away enter if ( age < 100 ) { // If the age is less than 100 cout<<"You are pretty young!\n"; // Just to show you it works... } else if ( age == 100 ) { // I use else just to show an example cout<<"You are old\n"; // Just to show you it works... } else { cout<<"You are really old\n"; // Executed if no other statement is } cin.get(); } Save it and click on "Execute program" button, the gearlike symbol, but to my surprise it does not give me the output it should have instead gives me the output of the previous main.cpp file as follows: Hello World. Press enter to continue... Now can any one please tell me what to do? How can I make new files in this same project and execute them properly. This is driving me nuts, can't understand what is going wrong here. Thanks.
