QT5 on xUbuntu 12.04.2 LTS

The latest version of xVideoServiceThief (2.5) switched to using the QT5 library.

To get it to work, I needed to setup QT5 on a xUbuntu 12.04.2 LTS which I did by running the following commands:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties && \
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:canonical-qt5-edgers/qt5-proper && \
sudo apt-get update && \
sudo apt-get install libqt5gui5 libqt5webkit5 libqt5script5

Let me know in the comments if this helped you or if there were any issues.

Cloudstack 4.1 on Ubuntu Server

My objective was to setup a Cloudstack 4.1 management node which will also server an NFS server for both primary and secondary storage.

The series of commands below were run on an Ubuntu Server 12.04.2(precise) system. During installation of the operating system, only the OpenSSH server was enabled in the task selection screen. I also made sure to name the server with a fully qualified domain name i.e.

#setup cloudstack source
echo "deb precise 4.1" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cloudstack.list
#setup percona source
cat <<EOF >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/percona.list
deb precise main
deb-src precise main

#install the cloudstack apt-key
wget -O -|apt-key add -

#install stuff
apt-get update && \
apt-get install -y --force-yes openntpd nfs-kernel-server cloudstack-management percona-server-server-5.5 percona-server-client-5.5

cat <<EOF >/etc/mysql/conf.d/cloudstack.cnf
binlog-format = 'ROW'
service mysql restart

#setup nfs
mkdir -p /export/primary /export/secondary /var/primary /var/secondary
cat <<EOF >>/etc/fstab
/var/primary    /export/primary   none    bind  0  0
/var/secondary  /export/secondary none    bind  0  0
mount --bind /var/primary/ /export/primary/
mount --bind /var/secondary/ /export/secondary/
echo "/export         *(rw,async,no_root_squash,no_subtree_check)" >> /etc/exports
exportfs -a
service nfs-kernel-server restart

#setup cloudstack database
cloudstack-setup-databases cloud:test@localhost --deploy-as=root:root

#setup management server
echo 'Defaults:cloud !requiretty' >> /etc/sudoers.d/cloudstack
