Most Linux admins are aware of the yum (Yellow Dog Updater Modified) utility for package management in Red Hat-based distros such as RHEL, CentOS, and Fedora. Few, however, are aware of the power, benefits, and utility of yum groups.
The following tutorial is based on CentOS 6.5 and should work with other versions of Red Hat-based distros. Older versions may require that you install yum-utils in order to use yum groups.

Well there I was, rebuilding a router and having a good time when I accidentally damaged the partition table on my main Linux installation, which is a GUID partition table, or GPT.
How did this happen? I was installing Voyage Linux on a compact flash card, and while I was messing around with GParted and other filesystem tools I accidentally ran some commands on/dev/sdb, my main hard disk, instead of /dev/sdc, the compact flash card. Like, oops. I don't know exactly which operations gummed up /dev/sdb, which would be good to know.

Few Linux desktops have brought about such controversy as GNOME 3. It’s been ridiculed, scorned, and hated since it was first released. Thing is, it’s actually a very good desktop. It’s solid, reliable, stable, elegant, simple... and with a few minor tweaks and additions, it can be made into one of the most efficient and user-friendly desktops on the market.
I decided to go about this process by first installing a clean Ubuntu GNOME distribution that included GNOME 3.12. With the GNOME-centric desktop ready to go, it’s time to start tweaking.

Sometimes I get frustrated with Linux, this happens mainly while installing. Installing is often one of the most frustrating experiences with Linux. I remember a time where this kept me from using Linux at all. Today I had such a day again after a long time, I was installing Ubuntu on a laptop which had a harddisk replaced and for the second time in a row the installation hanged suddenly. This kind of things always happen when I'm in a hurry. And you know why? Such a thing most of the time is related to hurrying!
