Creating and deploying a Java 8 runtime container image

Orignally posted at Red Hat Developers A Java runtime environment should be able to run compiled source code, whereas a development kit, for example, OpenJDK, would include all the libraries/binaries to compile and run the source code. Essentially the latter is a superset of the runtime environment. More details on OpenJDK support and lifecycle can be found here. Red Hat ships and supports container images with OpenJDK for both Java 8 and 11.

Install log; fedora 23, Virtualbox and windows 10

I have been using Linux for quite some time now, and jumping from windows xp to windows 10 was a huge change for me.

Anyways, I made a quick compilation of how you could run Fedora 23 and on VirtualBox running on windows 10. Software versions Windows: 10 VirtualBox: 5.0.16.x Fedora: 23 Sidetrack tip: Even though the installer was in English , it changed my language to Danish.

Lets start by an introduction to semanage. From man Description semanage is used to configure certain elements of SELinux policy without requiring modification to or recompilation from policy sources.

FedUp and Fedora 18

Just now I made the update from Fedora 17 to 18. I didnt know that fedora 18 has a new update util called fedUp. If you are interested you could read here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedUp Just do the following yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install fedup And then fedup --network 18 It should ask for a reboot after some downloads, and that should just do the trick. atleast it did for me.

Get on Jekyll with Jekyll bootstrap

There has been an era, where we have thought about and implemented blog engines such as wordpress and the like, but then one asks why did we do that in the first place. Good things that come to mind, rich text editing, comments, dynamic content. The last one is a bit of an over kill though , at least in my case. I just host a personal blog, have enough technical knowledge to use tools as git, ruby etc.
