When ever you try and install a new feature on Windows 8 it tries to connect to the internet to check what else it might need to download.
But this fails if you don’t have an internet connection and then it won’t let you install the feature.
To get around this you need to :
Put the DVD in the drive or mount the iSO and run this from a CMD with adminrights:dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source:d:sourcessxs /LimitAccess
Thats if you want to install .Net 3.5.1
I assume it also works for other features and for Windows Server 8
via .Net 3.5 Sp1 Won’t install in Windows 8?.
When using a puTTY or terminal window to a Unix server some people like to set the colours of the text or background, some people don’t.
Sometimes I like to set the text colour to be like to old school Amber monitors.
To do this I use following colour settings
RED: 255, GREEN: 128, BLUE: 0
If also found a very nice blue colour once that I use occasionally.
RED: 5, GREEN: 150, BLUE: 229
If I want an old school green screen look, i usually just go with,
RED: 0, GREEN: 255, BLUE: 0
Unix uses links a bit like Windows uses short cuts. Except that the Unix version is more robust. It appears to the system virtually identical to the file it is pointing to.
To create a link you need to use the following syntax :
#> ln -s existing_file next_file
