After 2 weeks of fighting OS X I finally have sensible command line tools:
brew install coreutils


Anyone who prefers typing `rm -rf /some/path` to `rm /some/path -rf` has not typed it enough yet.

Just use Finder to drag-and-drop to the Trash can?
Impossible to repeat accidentally, and still in your trash can... ;-)

ouch,
the +Btrfs   developers had a 'WTF moment' with my problem, 
good thing I'm quite paranoid about backups...

Getting Steam working on fedora17

I've been able to get it to work under fedora 17 (64 bit)
download the .deb here http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb
extract the .deb file, extract the data.tar.gz, then extract the /usr/lib/steam/contents folder to ~/.steam

Then I had to install these packages (might be some more, I have a lot of crap already installed on my system)

sudo yum install openal-soft.i686 xulrunner.i686 mesa-libGL.i686 libpng-compat.i686

and

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:~/.steam/bin

after this this command should have the following input

$ ldd ~/.steam/bin/* | grep "not found" | sort -u

ldd: /home/jens/.steam/bin/shaders: not regular file

if it still shows non found for some libraries, search for the rpm containing them here
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libpng12.so.0&submit=Search+...&system=&arch=
and install them (be sure to install the .686 version)

If this succeeds, you need to run ~/.steam/steam.sh  close the screen when it complains about closed beta, then run ~/steam/bin/steam steam://open/games

result:

For the people wondering about this, don't run the Team Fortress 2 (beta) and other (beta)'s that suddently apear, all beta software is broken, look in the store for the official one, that one should work.

Nope, didn't win, and the rules stated that scripts and multiple e-mail adresses were not allowed anyway, that's why I made it public, 100 people trying 100 times is less conspicuous then me trying 10.000 times.

Btw, be warned, hln is sending me heaploads of e-mails at the moment, luckily gmail alows me to easily filter them out.
