Goed nieuws voor gebruikers van de Asus EP 121, er is een nieuwe BIOS versie met support voor Windows 8. Na installeren van BIOS update zijn er ook in de Windows update 2 updates beschikbaar.
A while ago I did a series of blog posts about Taxonomy Fields. You can find those posts here: Part I, Part II, Part III. Most of the code in those posts is not usable when working in the Sandbox, since the Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy namespace is not available when writing solutions for the sandbox.
Wie met Silverlight of met WPF heeft gewerkt en MVVM regelmatig toepast zal ongetwijfeld the UpdateSourceTrigger wel is hebben aangepast. Vooral bij bindings naar een geselecteerd item is het erg handig en vaak noodzakelijk om de ingevoerde tekst bij het juiste item terug te krijgen. Helaas is de UpdateSourceTrigger weg gehaald bij WinRT.
Today Microsoft announced, there will be a Build Conference from 30 October t/m 2 November 2012. This conference, one week after Windows 8 will be general available, will be held at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond. Besides Windows 8 also Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8, Windows Server 2012, Visual Studio 2012 and many more will be there. More >
Fedora 17 has a GRUB2 version that supports booting from a boot partition in a LVM logical volume. That means you can have a full LVM layout of your disk(s) without a separate physical partition for /boot. I want that! Now, I’m rather pleased with my current Fedora setup, so I did not want to do a full re-install. What to do? Would it be possible to lite:rary “move” my existing partitions into LV’s, including /boot? Turn’s out this can be done and it’s fairly (..) easy. You need to have at least the same amount of free disk space available as the separate partitions combined , either in an existing Volume Group or in unused disk space.
Just a quick post how to create a minimal install (cli only) with Fedora 17.
- First, don’t use the live CD, but either the “Install DVD” or the “network install CD”, both of which you can find here.
- Next, when you boot up with one of these install media (either physical or virtual) you are presented with a minimalist GRUB menu. Press TAB within the default boot timeout value of 60s.
- You get presented the grub linux start command. Append the line with the parameter “text” and press <enter>
- You will be brought into a text mode install with much less options. Go through the setup questions as you normally would. When using the network installation CD you will also be asked to configure the NIC, because it is an over-the-network install. Just fill in for your local situation to get to the Net. You need DNS. You can use Googles DNS is you don’t know any: IP = 22.214.171.124
When you use Oracle ASM (Automatic Storage Management) for your database, the permissions on the block devices on the operating system layer which are used by ASM need to be changed. To be more precise, the owner and group need to be set to ‘oracle’ and ‘dba’ (Oracle documentation) in my case.
