apache-maven-3.2.1-2 Released

I’ve updated apache-maven to 3.2.1-2 in my repo for EPEL6.

Notable changes:

  • File structure is more like maven in RHEL7.
  • Setting files are set with (noreplace), so older setting file should be backed up with .rpmsave after upgrade.
  • Executables (such as mvn) are available in /usr/bin
  •  /usr/share/apache-maven/conf is now a link to /etc/maven.
    rpm -Uvh might not work, please remove the previous apache-maven before install new version.


recordmydesktop: screen recording for linux

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures (literately!), especially for bug reporting.

Anyway, I have tried gtk-recordMyDesktop, which is gtk frontend of recordMyDesktop, a desktop session recording tool.

It is not hard to use, and capable of recording my voice. See this  for result.

The packages are in official Fedora repositories, so to install::

sudo yum -y install gtk-recordmydesktop

Replace gtk-recordmydesktop with qt-recordmydesktop if you perfer qt frontend.
