I spent the whole day updating my computer at work. I got a web
update done. I got a few other small things knocked of my to-do list.
The rest of the day was bringing the machine from EL4 to EL5. I'm left
with a machine that will not run some system configuration programs and
won't use both monitors properly.
I just tried to get a piece of software working on Elle's computer.
It didn't work because the software insists on downloading prerequisite
from the internet. It has gotten to the point that no one distributes
things like DirectX
or the DB drivers from Microsoft any more. I still prefer the YUM model
if you insist on downloading your updates. At least, I can download an
entire repository for YUM and take it off line.
