no more adsense

I don't really see the benefit of using adsense anymore. Everyone knows they're ads, no one clicks. It doesn't pay my isp bills anymore, so I'm dropping it. They were only annoying anyway.

hard coding a library path into an executable while building an rpm

The problem I was trying to fix here was that I had a package that required a much newer version of a library than the system had installed on it. I didn't want to ruin the stability of the system by updating the library so I build it and placed it in a non standard location (harkening back to the solaris days I guess). If you can't guess what the problem was, I called the library package qt4-vlc...hint hint.

building rpms, spec files, rpmbuild, simple tutorial on making rpms by example

I posted some additional material on building rpms in the appendix of the book. I cover how to build an example spec file from scratch. This is similar to what I did in my presentation, just with a lot more detail. I hope to expand this section to cover nested packages and kernel modules. Those sections are not done yet...read it here.

creating simple selinux module fails with assertion on line x violated by allow something_t fixed_disk_device_t

I'm still working with my own kvm implementation even though RedHat has released their own in RHEL 5.4, they are, however, at version 83, I'm on 88. I'd rather stay current since kvm is moving so fast that each new version fixes bugs and adds many new features.
