Yahoo! OpenHackDay 2010

Finally I’ll be attending the Yahoo! Open Hack Day 2010. I wanted to attend this event ever since my college days but unfortunately the dates always clashed with onething or the other :!

This time its being organised on July 24th and 25th, 2010.

And this time I’ll be attending as an organiser. That means I can’t participate as a hacker (well not eligible for prizes atleast :! )

Etherpad setup on Fedora 12 slicehost.

I ve been trying to setup etherpad on my slicehost slice running fedora. I managed to get all the dependencies fulfilled yet it would fail compiling. (I let it run for 36+ hours and then did Ctrl+C when I realised its not really working.) Then I came across the newly released rpm for fedora 12:

http://sdz.fedorapeople.org/etherpad/

This still is buggy. For example,

[root@deltacore etherpad-0]# etherpad-rebuildjar.sh
/usr/bin/etherpad-rebuildjar.sh: line 32: ../infrastructure/bin/compilecache.sh: No such file or directory

Ofcourse, because the original script has just been moved to /usr/bin without even changing the source :!

Anyways, I just tried running the etherpad server and thats when I got my major roadblock :!

[root@deltacore etherpad-0]# etherpad-run-local.sh
Using config file: /etc/etherpad.localdev-default.properties
Error occurred during initialization of VM
Could not reserve enough space for object heap

So next, I am gonna run it on my private server with better memory and see how it works.
