So – perl6 is finally out

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 16:50

So, perl6 is out – before x-mas 🙂 I decided to give it a spin. First, upgrading my current installed perlbrew of 5.22.0 to 5.22.1, and adding a option I previously didn’t set. Seems to be a requirement for -fPIC and installing Inline::Perl5 that I think might come in handy.

$ perlbrew install perl-5.22.1 -Duseshrplib

– Set perl-5.22-1 active and install cpanm

$ perlbrew use perl-5.22.1
$ perlbrew install-cpanm
$ perlbrew use perl-5.22.0

– Now, get all installed modules from 5.22.0 to 5.22.1

$ perlbrew list-modules | perlbrew exec --with 5.22.1 cpanm
$ perlbrew switch 5.22.1

From the Christmas release I decided on installing using radukobrew.

$ git clone ~/.rakudobrew
$ echo 'export PATH=~/.rakudobrew/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc
$ source ~/.bashrc

Well, I ended up adding this to my .bashrc

if [ -e ~/.rakudobrew/bin ]; then
  export PATH=:$PATH:~/.rakudobrew/bin
if [ -e ~/.rakudobrew/moar-nom/install/share/perl6/site/bin ]; then
  export PATH=$PATH:~/.rakudobrew/moar-nom/install/share/perl6/site/bin
$ rakudobrew build moar && rakudobrew build-panda
$ panda install Task::Star
$ panda install Inline::Perl5

Nautilus and list-view as default

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 11:43

Not so happy with the default choice of “files” for Gnome 3.18 – I want list view and this is how you set it.

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences default-folder-viewer 'list-view'

Logitech profiler and steam games

Filed under: Private_en — Thalamus @ 20:43

So, I want to start games via the logitech profiler. Because I can then adjust all my keys on my old momo racing wheel and get them all fully working in – this awsome racing game, dirt rally.

Right click the icon that steam provides you. It should read something like this …


Now in logitech profiler – make a custom startup with these parameters and your good.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe -applaunch  310560

2 TB disk – GPT – make one ext4 partition – parted

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 09:45

So, to use larger disks, a gpt partition table is needed. Here I wanted one disk – one partiton all for ext4.

parted -s -a optimal /dev/sdc mklabel gpt -- mkpart primary ext4 1 -1
