GIT: My remote repository moved. How do I tell my local repo to use the new one?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 12, 2010
I have a local git repository that pushes to a remote repository. That remote repository moved to a new server. How do I make "git push" and "git pull" push/pull to/from the new repo?
It's probably very simple, but I don't want to screw anything up, so I'm asking first.
How can I make a local mirror and update it automatically?

There's a FTP server in my university with terabytes of disk storages. Our university has not very large bandwidth for personal downloads but we can download many contents with that server 24/7.
This subject give me an idea to make a local repository of various Linux distros on that server, which can improve using of Linux in the university (by fast local software installations).
Although that server run Windows Server 2008 but we may could run a VMWare on that and install a Linux distro on it.
Now, how can I download all Fedora packages (for various releases and various architectures) and more important, how can I update them regularly and automatically at specific periods?
I think we can do similar job in Ubuntu by using "debmirror" or "aptmirror" programs. And we can update this job by using "cronjob" in Ubuntu. But how about Fedora?
I searched about it and met some programs like "rsync" but I don't know how they

Is it necessary to disable IPv6 In Lucid?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2010
Okay so on WebUpd8 website, (http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/how-t...untu-1004.html), I found a way to disable IPv6 and I was hoping to get a little more of an understanding of if I should or not from comments there, but unfortunately I haven't gotten enough to say let's do that. So I figured I might get a better understanding on here.
I am not very familiar with IPv6, but to my understanding its a newer thing that's rarely found currently with ISPs, but can be a security issue now.
So should I disable it?

brand new to linux and my first post here, so bear with me.
I installed a program for work (pymol) cannot get it to run.

The only thing I could find on the repo I referenced is that it is for Debian Stable. Not real helpful. I didn't spend much time on it. It is probably explained in the Debian manual but I haven't had time to look into that.
It is something, now that I am thinking about it, that I want to find out but it will not be soon.
I know some folks like palimpsest but never liked it from the start. Not sure why, just doesn't blow my skirt up at all.
The more you do to a system the more cruft builds up. This is more noticable on smaller systems.
If you check all associated files for a package before removing them you can then check them all after the removal. It is a good idea to make sure the files are not used for some other package too though.
Do you have a /etc/apt/apt.conf?
You can configure the behavior of APT with that file. You might want to check the man page on that.
One thing you can do to help keep your system size down is to not install "recommends" automatica
