I can’t get used to this Mac. I thought it would be easier to do command line stuff because of my familiarity with the CLI in Linux. Ah contraire. I am familiar with the Red Hat version. I’ve never done the whole Ubuntu/Debian thing. And Macs, coming from the BDS world seem to be more like Debian with their stupid sudo. Look, all I wanted to do was install Digikam (which I’ve used in Linux and am in love with as a photo manager). I got Mac ports up and running. But to install I needed to sudo. Unfortunately my user account isn’t on the sudoers list. I spent nearly 2 hours trying to get my account in there. Doesn’t help it uses the evil vi as an editor. That’s right. You have to use visudo to edit the file. I know NOTHING about vi. I list it as evil. Emacs is the way to go.
So I figure I’m going to wait until Lion is out to do a clean install.
Oh yeah, my brilliant idea of using the Mac as a media center… is on hold while I figure out what sort of cables and adapter box I need. Thank you ancient TV with nothing but RCA inputs.
To add to the fun… Gidgette is in heat. I won’t have time to get her to the vet tomorrow. But hopefully on Tuesday morning, he can give her a shot of kitty birth control. It works for about a year. I don’t think I want to go down the route of surgery to see if they can find any more ovarian tissue that’s causing the heat. The first spay was hard enough on her.
