Some notes from todays work…

  • Don’t interrupt a running yum update with kill -9, that messes up things. Had to reinstall some, and remove some, packages, upgrading a machine from CentOS 4.3 to 4.4. Oh well..

    Btw, the error message from yum when it can’t find any mirrors due to the nameserver being completely down is.. confusing! I don’t have it here, though.

    YUM delenda est.

  • Playing around with SOAP, talking to SugarCRM, got much easier after reading the “guide.pdf”, which is unfortunately only available in the mail archive (and I can’t find a web archive with the pdf available to link to). Hopefully, it’ll be added to the pywebsvcs web pages soon.

I’m thinking about writing a SugarCRM plugin for opensync. That would be cool. And useful. The code for moto-sync, in Python, is very readable and could serve as an example.
