comment How to find and install the GNU Smalltalk on CentOS or Fedora / RedHat?
also if I have the 7GB .iso image of CentOS Everything installation DVD, would the smalltalk package be in there? I did a find . -iname "*smalltalk*" in that DVD and there was nothing found

maybe I give Fedora a try... on CentOS, it didn't work, and I wonder too, if on Fedora, if it works, then shouldn't yum search be able to find it too? (as a general search for both Fedora and CentOS)

comment How to install Desktop Environments on CentOS 7?
I downloaded the 7GB version of CentOS 7 and installed it on VirtualBox, and surprisingly, there is no GUI. 7GB as compared to Ubuntu's 1GB with GUI. And the step 1 in the answer gave me error "Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo"... oh well... P.S. I just found that it is defaulted to "Minimal installation" during the installation -- you just have to change it to GNOME or something else

comment Why does history not overwrite but append when histappend is set to off in Bash?
on the Mac it wasn't giving much info at all, and on Ubuntu it is no man page for trap and I suspect man page for bash won't give much info at all like the Mac. Any way, trap -p gave nothing back on the Mac. Hopefully next time you won't ask me what \rm -rf ~ returns (which erases all your files)

I can't find the man page for trap... so I don't feel ok to run it... can you reproduce the issue by doing some changes to trap's value instead of asking me to do this and do that?

comment How to browse a website as if I am in USA?
(by the way, I have to type in a password to log into myserver.com... so no ssh key is set up yet... does that make a difference?)

comment How to browse a website as if I am in USA?
so you mean on my local machine (my Macbook), I type ssh -D 8080 myusername@myserver.com which will actually log me in at myserver.com and give me a Bash. And then change the Web Proxy HTTP and HTTPS on my Macbook to localhost:8080? Can't make it to work so far... for one thing, I think my dreamhost machine is not running a proxy program that can help forward the traffic yet?

about ssh and tunneling... or can I start some command on the dreamhost shell and make it a proxy for myself?
