Sourcetree Update in Windows 10

  1.  Update has hung for few months (i usually work in Linux anyhow)
  2. I choose to accept
  3. New update for version 1.9.0 is downloaded and installed, not more glitches than normal Windows installer brings
  4. After update I get a pop-up that this version will not be updated/maintained anymore and I can choose to ignore or get to the downloads page
  5. I get to downloads, I’m curious
  6. a new version 2.3.5.0 is downloaded, so I install it
  7. Installation is smooth, and I am bugged about the earlier version once again when I start the app.

Now, really? I have to update to a non-supported version first to get the latest, separate, completely new version? How smooth is this?

 

Install jMeter in Fedora

I was a bit surprised for Fedora not having jmeter in the repository, but then I thought I could as well do the thingy in the old way 😀

First of all, we need to get the release:

wget http://apache.mirrors.spacedump.net//jmeter/binaries/apache-jmeter-3.1.tgz

Then we need to extract it:

sudo tar -xzf apache-jmeter-3.1.tgz -C /opt/

After that, we create the symlink to the jmeter -binary:

sudo ln -s /opt/apache-jmeter-3.1/bin/jmeter /usr/local/bin/jmeter

And as last, we create a desktop shortcut:

vi ~/.local/share/applications/jmeter.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=JMeter
Comment=JMeter
Exec=/usr/local/bin/jmeter
Icon=/opt/apache-jmeter-3.1/docs/images/jmeter_square.png
Terminal=false

 

That’s it. We’re done 😀
