A friend of mine hosts a lot of Wordpress sites and we regularly see a lot of brute force attempts from many different IP addresses repeatedly tring to login to the admin section of the site at wp-login.php
Hot on the heals of the CentOS 5.10, PHP 5.4.21 and PHP 5.5.5 releases, my RPMs have now been updated as follows:
Sublime Text is a very good, but lightweight text editor for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Unfortunately the developers do not provide packages for Fedora (or any Linux distribution) and because it is non-free it is not in the Fedora official repositories.
This is how to install it and create a launcher for Fedora 19 using Gnome3.
The latest version of CentOS, 5.9, has updated their Postfix (an SMTP mail server) package to require mysql because it now supports reading user and domain lists from a MySQL database.
Unfortunately this has caused issues with anyone using the Oracle or MariaDB MySQL distributions.
The good folks over at Valve have recently launched their Steam client for Linux and ported some of their games to run on Linux.
Unfortunately the officially supported client only runs on Ubuntu, however Fedora People have kindly re-packaged it into an RPM suitable for running on Fedora 18.
For the last few weeks I have been encountering a strange problem with making IP WHOIS queries against the RIPE database, which covers all European IPs.
I first encountered the problem during a routine server upgrade and reboot. Suddenly some of our software that we run on these servers started producing errors saying that WHOIS lookups could not be performed.
