Novell® Pre-Release Software License Agreement

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. BY INSTALLING OR OTHERWISE USING
THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING ITS COMPONENTS), YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF
THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS, DO NOT DOWNLOAD,
INSTALL OR USE THE SOFTWARE AND, IF APPLICABLE, RETURN THE ENTIRE
UNUSED PACKAGE TO THE RESELLER WITH YOUR RECEIPT FOR A REFUND. EXCEPT
TO ANY EXTENT AUTHORIZED BELOW, THE SOFTWARE MAY NOT BE SOLD,
TRANSFERRED, OR FURTHER DISTRIBUTED WITHOUT PRIOR WRITTEN
AUTHORIZATION FROM NOVELL.

RIGHTS AND LICENSES

This Novell Software License Agreement ("Agreement") is a legal
agreement between You (an entity or a person) and Novell, Inc.
("Novell") with respect to the software product identified in the
title of this Agreement, media (if any) and accompanying documentation
(collectively the "Software").

The Software is a collective work of Novell. Subject to the terms and
conditions of this Beta Agreement, Novell grants You a non-exclusive,
non-transferable right to reproduce and internally use the Software
during the Term specified below in a quantity as reasonably necessary
to perform Your evaluation and/or testing of the Software.

The Software is a modular operating system. Most of the components
are open source packages, developed independently, and accompanied by
separate license terms. Your license rights with respect to
individual components accompanied by separate license terms are
defined by those terms; nothing in this Agreement shall restrict,
limit, or otherwise affect any rights or obligations You may have, or
conditions to which You may be subject, under such license terms.

While the license terms for a component may authorize You to
distribute the component, You may not use any Novell marks (e.g., SUSE
and SUSE LINUX) in distributing the component, whether or not the
component contains Novell marks.

OTHER LICENSE TERMS AND RESTRICTIONS

The Software is protected by the copyright laws and treaties of the
United States ("U.S.") and other countries and is subject to the
terms of this Agreement. The Software is licensed to You, not sold.

The Software may be bundled with other software programs ("Bundled
Programs"). Your license rights with respect to Bundled Programs
accompanied by separate license terms are defined by those terms;
nothing in this Agreement shall restrict, limit, or otherwise affect
any rights or obligations You may have, or conditions to which You may
be subject, under such license terms.

Novell reserves all rights not expressly granted to You. You may not:
(1) reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Software except
and only to the extent it is expressly permitted by applicable law or
the license terms accompanying a component of the Software; or (2)
transfer the Software or Your license rights under this Agreement, in
whole or in part.

Since the Software is of pre-release quality, You should not use the
Software in a commercial or production system. The Software has not
been fully tested and may contain errors and omissions. The Software
should be used only in a testing environment. Novell does not
guarantee that a commercial version of the Software will become
generally available to the public, that target dates will be met, or
that associated products will be released. The entire risk arising
out of Your use of the Software remains with You. The Software may
contain an automatic disabling mechanism that prevents its use after a
certain period of time, so You should back up Your system and take
other measures to prevent any loss of files or data. Use of the
Software is entirely at Your own risk.

You understand and agree that Novell may use any feedback or
information You provide and You hereby grant Novell a perpetual and
irrevocable license to use all such feedback and information for any
purpose without compensation to You, provided that Novell shall not
publicly reference Your name in connection therewith. You represent
and warrant that such feedback and information will not include any
proprietary or confidential information of You or any third party and
that You have full authority to grant the foregoing license.

No title to or ownership of the Software is transferred to You. Novell
and/or its licensors owns and retains all title and ownership of all
intellectual property rights in the Software, including any
adaptations or copies. You acquire only a license to use the Software.

THE SOFTWARE AND OTHER CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED TO YOU
"AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE
RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE OF THE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION IS ASSUMED BY
YOU. NOVELL DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND
NONINFRINGEMENT. NOVELL DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL
SATISFY YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERTATION OF THE SOFTWARE WILL
BE UNINTERRUPTED. Some jurisdictions do not allow certain disclaimers
and limitations of warranties, so portions of the above limitations
may not apply to You. This limited warranty gives You specific rights
and You may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Non-Novell Products. The Software may include or be bundled with
hardware or other software programs licensed or sold by a licensor
other than Novell. NOVELL DOES NOT WARRANT NON-NOVELL PRODUCTS. ANY
SUCH PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN 'AS IS” BASIS. ANY WARRANTY SERVICE
FOR NON-NOVELL PRODUCTS IS PROVIDED BY THE PRODUCT LICENSOR IN
ACCORDANCE WITH THE APPLICABLE LICENSOR WARRANTY.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Consequential Losses. NEITHER NOVELL NOR ANY OF ITS LICENSORS,
SUBSIDIARIES, OR EMPLOYEES WILL IN ANY CASE BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL,

INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS OR DATA, EVEN
IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THOSE DAMAGES.

Direct Damages. IN NO EVENT WILL NOVELL'S AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR
DIRECT DAMAGES TO PROPERTY OR PERSON (WHETHER IN ONE INSTANCE OR A
SERIES OF INSTANCES) EXCEED 1.25 TIMES THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR THE
SOFTWARE OUT OF WHICH SUCH CLAIM AROSE [OR $50 (U.S.) IF YOU RECEIVED
THE SOFTWARE FREE OF CHARGE]. The above exclusions and limitations
will not apply to claims relating to death or personal injury. In
those jurisdictions that do not allow the exclusion or limitation of

maximum extent allowed within those jurisdictions.

Similar Product's end user license agreement, and in addition to any
other remedies Novell may have, Novell shall have the right to perform

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
