Notes while working though the Writing your first Django app tutorial.
Process to get a working Go development environment for GTK+ and Webkit on Debian.
hugo is a static website engine. This site was previously done using b2evolution, but with the expection of supporting user comments, did not need any of the dynamic overhead. I moved to hugo to eliminate having to moderate comments, manage updates and ward off hacking attempts.
There are many articles that describe configuring bridged networking for qemu virtual hosts and clients. None I found seemed to be completely helpful, but I finally found a solution that worked for me.
I did a little work with a Debian install and was not seeing the wired network card, even after loading the module, atl1c. Running ifconfig only showed the lo interface.
While working though an introduction to virtual environments I was able to get to the point that I was in the virtual environment by way of
activate and then by habit, typed control-D to exit the virtual environment. To my surprise I ended up exiting my entire terminal session, though it was obvious since I “sourced”
activate into my current shell… never mind that. This post is about a way to avoid all that.
