New Google Browser Chrome Installed (with pictures)

Google ChromeCan not resist the media teasing about the new browser from Google – Chrome. Here is the installation I conducted today.

First of first, you need to download it from Google Chrome website which is hard for the public to find from its main site or the link from Google’s main page. The link is http://www.google.com/chrome

And you can choose Save or Open when you see the download dialog window. For me, I just used Save in case I need to install on other machines too.

Ubuntu 8.04 installed (with pictures)

ubuntu804 As its previous versions, the newer version of Ubuntu (version number 8.04 and code name ) is very easy for the installation. After downloading the ISO file from the Internet and pointing it with one of my virtual machine, the installation menu was there quickly. With its no-brain 7-step installation process, the overall time was less than an hour ( I got some issues with my virtual machine, but it was still cool compared with couple of hours with Windows OS installation).

Read on for more installation photo gallery… You can click the thumbnail to view the larger picture.

About the installation of YetAnotherForum

It is time for Ubuntu 7.10

UbuntuWell, first of all, I am not a Linux geek. But I like Ubuntu when I first touched it.

I heard from the website http://education.zdnet.com/?p=1250 that Ubuntu will release its newer version (called Gutsy Gibbon) in this month. According to Ubuntu’s own description, they will release a new version each half year and the latest one is 7.04 which was released on April, 2007. By the way, I think you already figured out how the Ubuntu version name convention works. Yes, that is right, the major version number comes from the Year (like 7 for 2007) and the minor version number is for the release month number.

What’s new with the new version: Continue reading

“Windows cannot open this program since it has been disabled” error message when I try to install the Oracle9i Release 2 on my Windows Server 2003, Web Edition-based computer

Today I tried to install Oracle 9i on my Windows 2003 Web Edition server with 3 installation CDs. First I did not get the auto-run working when the disc 1 inserted. So I browsed to the CD driver and clicked the autorun.exe file under the autorun folder manually. But I got an error message window indicating that “Windows cannot open this program since it has been disabled“.

This is weird. I thought it might be my CD-ROM problem, so I move these files to my hard-disk. Re-clicked again, the same error. I tried the setup.exe too, and got the same error. Tried the same CD on the Windows XP pro machine, ran without any problem.
