Error Failed Dependencies: is needed by nxclient-3.4.0-7.i386 Installing NX Client

While looking for a light weight way to run XChat all the time without having to disconnect every time I shutdown my laptop I discovered NoMachine NX which is easy to install, configure, and use. It provides remote X sessions and is fairly reasonable in terms of bandwidth. When installing the NX Client on one of the CentOS servers I was installing this on I ran into an error complaining about libaudiofile. Below I describe the error in more detail, how I located the package to install, and show the package being installed.

Failed loading /usr/lib/php/zend/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Recently I upgraded PHP 5.2 to PHP 5.3 on a CentOS Linux server because of a PHP 0day and noticed an error complaining about which is the library loaded into PHP. After some research I found out that it doesn’t look like Zend Optimizer is available for PHP 5.3 on CentOS Linux and will not be available for PHP 5.3 period. Not a big deal in my scenario as I was using it as well as PHP eAccelerator. This error is easily resolved as long as you do not require the php-zend-optimizer package so if that is the case follow the directions below to resolve the error.

CUDA-Multiforcer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After installing a new server recently that uses Nvidia video cards to take advantage of their GPU capabilities I ran into an error while running a program called CUDA-Multiforcer. The CUDA-Multiforcer application is a security audit tool used to check the strength of password hashes encrypted using MD4, MD5, NTLM, or SHA1. After compiling the CUDA-Multiforcer and installing various Nvidia packages I ran into an error with the library. Below I describe the error in more detail as well as what I did to resolve the error.

Redmine Project Management Software: Textile Information And Possible Textile Limitations

Redmine project management software is developed in Ruby and is one of my favorite project management software packages. The Redmine project is actively developed so there are always improvements and additions being released. Redmine uses Textile formatting for tickets, wiki pages, news articles, and pretty much anywhere large areas of text are added. Textile is a great way to format text and while it may take some getting used to it once you do it is very easy to format tickets/issues and other areas that are updated frequently.
