Yesterday i was browsing Zend Framework Webinars, and i stopped by the title :
i didn’t hear about the Appcelerator thing before, but the title was really interesting as i use Zend framework extensively and it is a great idea to add some interactivity and UI to my apps.
after watching the webinars, i really liked the idea of being able to build the full prototype and have it working with no server side code, and then in the development phase with some slight changes to the prototype, it becomes the working front end interacting with the server side code with no problems @ all.
i went to try.appcelerator.org and gave it a try on the fly, that got me more interested. so i downloaded the sdk installer for MAC and installed it, the installation was at ease, even creating the projects and testing.
Appcelerator supports what we call “technology driven agile development” and we call that process Interactive Use Cases.
today i have installed the new release of Ubuntu, 8.10 Intrepid
but i had a problem setting my IP to a static one, when i do this through the network manager, and when i edited the network files manually nothing worked, so here is the steps i followed to solve the problem :
first i removed the network manager
sudo update-rc.d -f NetworkManager remove
then i added my network configuration by editing the file /etc/network/interfaces
sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
so it looks like
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
then i edited the file /etc/resolv.conf to add my DNS
sudo nano -w /etc/resolv.conf
to look like
# Generated by NetworkManager
then i restart the networking by :
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
if u still have problems, i suggest you restart the machine and check, the above steps is how i got my network up .
enjoy the new Ubuntu
