Serving CGI Scripts With Nginx On CentOS 6.0

This tutorial shows how you can serve CGI scripts (Perl scripts) with nginx on CentOS 6.0. While nginx itself does not serve CGI, there are several ways to work around this.

Editing Images With Pinta

Editing Images With Pinta

This article is about how to use the Pinta graphical editor to edit pictures and covers some of its most important features. Pinta is a lightweight image editor for Linux and is far more easier to handle than Gimp but still has a large variety of tools and features to use. It can be used for quick editing like resizing images or adjusting the colours of photographs, but also for more professional tasks which depend on layered images and more. It is a good mixture between MS Paint and professional image editing tools and is recommendable for most purposes of image-editing-everyday-use.

Lessfs 1.5 On CentOS 5

Lessfs 1.5 On CentOS 5

For this HowTo I used a VirtualBox with CentOS 5.7 x86_64. I attached a separate 20GB Data drive mounted to /data. This will hold the lessfs DB and data. The lessfs mountpoint I put at /lessfs. This is a very basic setup, just to get it running. There is plenty of tuning to be done based on volume size, file types, and compression choices. The latest lessfs required more recent versions of fuse and tokyocabinet than was in the CentOS repository, so I chose to install most of this from source.
