Old Application Downloads

I found a great site last night called OldApps.com.
It keeps old versions of applications available for download.

I was having trouble with the new version of iTunes (10.2.2), it seems to have broken the ‘organize media’ function. I was able to download 10.2.1 from this site.

I uninstalled 10.2.2, installed 10.2.1 and the organize media function now works.

 

Mount a ISO file in Solaris

Solaris Mount an ISO CD Image

Mounting an Existing ISO CD-ROM Image under Solaris UNIX

If your image name is cd.iso, you can type command:
# lofiadm -a /path/to/cd.iso
Output:

/dev/lofi/1

Please note that the file name argument on lofiadm must be fully qualified and the path must be absolute not relative (thanks to mike for tip).

/dev/lofi/1 is the device, use the same to mount iso image with mount command:
# mount -o ro -F hsfs /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
# cd /mnt
# ls -l
# df -k /mnt

Mount the loopback device as a randomly accessible file system with
mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/X /mnt.
Alternatively, use this combined format:
mount -F hsfs -o ro `lofiadm -a /path/to/image.iso` /mnt

via lofiadm: Solaris Mount an ISO CD Image.

Grid Control access to a Windows server

  1. Check that the host name credentials you are providing are the same as the user who install the database software on the Windows server.
  2. Check that the user is a member of the ora_dba local group on the server and
  3. Check that the Log on as a batch job local security privilege has been turned on.
