Xcode Not Enough Disk Space to Install

I need to update my Xcode on my MacBook Air, it only has 128 GB Flash Storage, and it is hard to upgrade the storage, obviously it has limited free storage, so I need to free some spaces, deleting my old files.

But, even there is already 23 GB free storage, it keep complaining, not enough disk space.

It seems like not all Zoom user have Raise/Lower Hand icon on the main window, the easiest way to do so is using short cut, for Mac user, the shortcut is: `option + y`.

Configure SELinux Policies for Web Server Write Permission

To allow web server to write into some file or directory in the linux file system when SELinux is enable, we need to set SELinux Policies, first install policycoreutils-python:

# yum install policycoreutils-python

And then for every file or directory which web server has write access, set the policy:

# semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_sys_rw_content_t "/path/to/directory(/.*)?"

With above command, "/path/to/directory" and sub directory will have httpd_sys_rw_content_t context, which allow http to write into file or directory.
