Installing Django on Ubuntu 6.06

Steps for install Django on Dapper Drake with Apache2, MySQL5, and Python2.4 already installed:

  1. sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-python python-mysqldb python-docutils
  2. wget http://www.djangoproject.com/download/0.95/tarball/
  3. tar xfz Django-0.95.tar.gz
  4. cd Django-0.95
  5. sudo python ez_setup.py
  6. sudo python setup.py install
  7. start creating a Django app

Other notes:

  • python-setuptools included with Dapper is not recent enough for Django 0.95

LiveCD News CSS

Spent more time fixing the CSS on livecdnews.com and I think I’m finally done. I aligned the content of the entries, made quotes stand out, and added navigation buttons at the bottom of the site (I can’t believe they were missing).

Also, last week LiveCD News had its first day of over 1,000 unique vists. That was good motivation to put some more time into the layout. And I’m glad I did, I had forgotten how much fun CSS can be.
