InDefero with Git on CentOS

In my never ending quest to improve the development environment at the office, I started looking at DVCS(distributed version control systems) and was leaning towards migrating from subversion to Git. I started looking for an easy way of managing a Git repository and came across InDefero.

InDefero is both a code and project management system that is similar to GoogleCode.

This post documents what I did to setup InDefero on a fresh install of CentOS 5.4.

Grails with Notepad++ Text Editor

Yesterday, I had to work on a Grails project on my old laptop which was running a fresh install of Windows XP SP3. The laptop is about 8 years old. It had 512mb memory and a Pentium M 1500Mhz. The experience was not very good.

First thing I had to do was to get Java installed. I went to the official website and downloaded JDK 1.6.0_20. I ran the installer and proceeded with the next step.
Next I downloaded the zip file distribution of Grails version 1.1.1 and extracted it to c:\grails.
