Ubuntu backup awesomeness

Humor

Twas a night before Christmas it was the 12th to be exact at 3 am beside my computer I did sat.

My ubuntu did stall, I had pondered and pondered and did a fresh install.

Swiftly I got to the the manual partition, then suddenly I had a fine apparition.

What I had saw in my wandering minds eye was my home directory gone arye.

And never again would I have to stay awake so late instead I shall be sleeping (isnt that great).

I jumped and I yelled with vigour and excite “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”

(ok im stopping with the poetry its too hard to make everything rhyme)
What that meant was my lucid install broke because of multiple issues with Xorg because I use the Nvidia drivers. The straw that broke the camel’s back was trying out the RGBA stuff thats coming in for lucid.

Long story short I had lots of problems

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
