Ubuntu Phone First Week



So my first week has gone since i rooted my Nexus 4 and installed the new Ubuntu phone.

It was realy easy to root and install the phone the hole process was done in 30 min including backup.
It has bean I hard week but now at the end life with the phone is better.

So the ONLY things that really work in the phone is.

  • Make and receives calls
  • Send and receives SMS
  • With i browser surf (Only from wifi )

That about it so my connections to the world when Im on the road is dead. No more facebook, Instagram and so on.
I use the browser to look things up if i had to.(This require a start my 4gwifi device)

But now I got to like the interface and thing that thiscan be good.

And it nice when you can connect your phone to the laptop and open an shell into the phone.(Used to sync my gmail contacts to the phone)

There are still some things that are not 100% god you can say some bugs. But its a develop phone now and im now downloading the develop toolkit :-).
So we will see how hard it s to build your own app to the Ubunut phone.

Private GIT server on centos 6

So i need to have an private git server. The plan is to fill the git server with my backups so I can see changes done to my git server.


Set up the local GIT server


adduser git
passwd git

Become the git user and go to home folder

su git
cd  ~

Create the repo

mkdir myrepo.git
cd myrepo.git/
git --bare init

So now the repo is done lets connect to it and start using it.
As another user i use root

make some ssh keys and add them to the git user

ssh-keygen -t rsa
ssh-copy-id git@localhost

Start using git

git clone git@localhost:myrepo.git
cd myrepo/
touch README
git add .
git commit -m "first"
git config --global user.name "Mattias Hemmingsson"
git config --global user.email matte@aaaelino.se
git push origin master

Happy GIT !
