With the later DRACs, like the DRAC III or DRAC 4, configuration can be a nightmare. I’ve even written a couple blog posts on the later dracs because of their complexity. You have to install software, manage dependencies, edit repository information, etc. It’s not easy, but it’s managable. But I […]

Since the default version of ImageMagick installed by yum on CentOS 5.5 is  6.2.something, and you want to be able to do all the cool stuff that ImageMagick 6.5.* and 6.6.* can do, you’re gonna have to compile it from source yourself. Don’t worry – it’s easy, and it works.

I ignored the early warning signs: the slow boots, the strange noises, the polite requests to insert the install DVD and run the disk utility. My main problem was that I’d lost my install DVD a long time ago. I had purchased my Mac Mini G4 1.5Ghz brand new in 2005, […]
