Standard Ubuntu build commands

So if you’re fairly geeky and re-install your copy of Ubuntu/Mint on a regular basis it’s often quite nice to have a list of standard stuff that doesn’t seem to be installed with the main distro (little things like, Emacs, MySQL, Apache etc etc) anymore. So the following might be a good idea:


apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get install emacs konversation k3b python mysql-server apache2 vlc build-essential php5 ruby git-core cvs subversion virtualbox inkscape skype wine

If you just want the geek stuff (i.e. no Konversation etc):


apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get install emacs python mysql-server apache2 build-essential php5 ruby git-core cvs subversion virtualbox inkscape

Obviously the proper way to do things would be to keep a list of all the packages you have installed and just reload them.

Relaxed

I’ve had a remarkably pleasant evening. TF had a bath and I nicked the water after her. I’ve not had a bath in ages. I did a bit of reading (got a ways through this weeks Economist) and did a bit of coding.

http://hughservers.com/howells/ is now live again. I’ve got all the content added, got the welsh translation up and sorted all the images out. All it needs now is a tidy up with the addition of a decent CSS file and it’ll be all sorted.

Well it is late and I’ve got another 6am start. Night all.
