Today I finally got around to making a Fedora 17 Linux Bash Script to automate my yum updates. It’s been on my todo list for a few months since I migrated over to Fedora 17. This simple bash script will firstly update yum itself, then it will run a complete system update. Everything will be logged to a file for verification at a later date.
When I reformatted and installed Fedora 17 Linux, I needed a way to randomly change my background wallpaper. After about 30 minutes of google’ing, I could not locate any simple fedora 17 packages or pre-made extensions for GNOME 3. With the help from pender and kolo from this forum post I was able to get a stable script running. Below you can find the script and how to implement it into a working GNOME 3 desktop.
I have made a few customisations to my dedicated server over the years, one of which is a custom login message with a full coloured display.
I have posted the code below for you all to inspect and use at your own discretion.
Have fun all!
