Well, i’m on a debian box and i have to upgrade my kernel, my actual version is 2.6.18 .
The debian repository suggests a kernel image version 2.6.26 and i can get it by a simple:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.26-1-686.
For more fun, we will try to get the latest version (2.6.28) of kernel and install it.
let’s start :
$ sudo apt-get install initramfs-tools ncftp
$ ncftp ftp://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/
$ tar xzvf linux-2.6.28.tar.gz
$ cd linux-2.6.28
$ cp /boot/config-2.6.18-6-686 .config
$ make menuconfig
$ sudo make modules_install install
$ cd /boot
$ sudo mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.28 2.6.28
$ sudo reboot
OpenVPN-Status is a web interface that manage who is connected to your OpenVPN server. It parses data from the management OpenVPN server, and try to give status of all connections in the real time. It has been developed using modpython.
A very simple script to demonstrate the power of Python on Series 60.
An application that allows users to edit different files format on the S60 mobile and save them. It provides others features like send text as sms, or speech it.. Other function still comming to make our simple editor better.
Card credit checker, allows you instantly check credit card number for validity. It can verify Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, Carte Blanche, American Express (AMEX), Discover, card numbers. CC Checker uses LUHN10 algorithm as well as first digits verification.Not a bad start, right? We’ve learned how to launch a Python application, something about the kinds of dialog support Python has built in, looked at a couple of sample applications, and then edited some source code not once but twice.
We’ll be producing more of these widgets on other aspects of Python’s use.
The first step towards scripting is to choose something that you need to do and focus on.
Also, making design of application and reading the documentation, is the way to build a correct project.
In my case i’ve work out java and c, and i focus on python, a simple interpreter language object-oriented.Anyway, i was scripted that dig_it, a widget based on dnspython, and wxwidget to provide passive information from domain name server.
