Hello dear readers (if they are any ;-) ),
Since today I'm (with Stijn, a colleague) in Germany in Göttingen for SambaXP.
I'll try to blog every time I have a break.
The first session of the tutorial by Jerry is very interesting but maybe a bit too fast. I can't imagine how difficult it is to follow this session for none samba experience people.
Shame on Novell that help M$ to deploy its non-iso standard proprietary file format ! I can't believe that Novell has its own fork of OOorg to support M$ !
From Novell Boosts OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office Interoperability :
Novell today announced that the Novell
Raskas asked me a question about the creation off a binary Perl script.
The goal of this was to run a Perl script on a machine where Perl is not installed.
perlcc should be our friend... but some dependencies were still giving troubles, so I tried to find another solution, here is a summary of my small research :
first, the Perl script's source (Copyright fred... but in GPL !) :
Something I discovered with Fedora Core 6 is the Personal File Sharing, even if this feature is not new, but I didn't install it on my previous gentoo box.
So I decided to try it with a colleague, Den Raf, and we had some troubles, to set it up it's very easy... but to use it with nautilus it wasn't so easy...
First step: enable it :
Go into System->Preferences menu and select "Personal File Sharing" as follow :
I'm very happy with my new D620, but of course I couldn't use FC6 out of the box (the iso in fact). I had some troubles with the Xorg resolution but google is my friend and I was able to have 1440x900 using the 915resolution program.
The laptop is able to run Compiz, so everything is nice in the best world... but (there is always a but) using a dual head configuration crashes always my X :(
I found that it's due to Compiz (or beryl) so I guess it's something to do with AIXGL... if somebody as a solution...
Desperate PHP developer... that's what I am today... why ?
Due to an ugly PHP bug with PHP provided with FC6 (maybe on other distributions too). I already spent some time to find that it was a bug, previously I was using sqlite with the sqlite PHP functions, but since I use the FC6, to have the support of sqlite, PDO must be used... so I did !
I use Eclipse as PHP IDE with several plugins.
A friend, Arrfab, pointed me to something I completly forgot to check for my problem.
I never had that problem in the past, but to be able to put Users and Computers in different ldap ou's with the newest samba 3 releases, the file /etc/ldap.conf must have the following entries :
nss_base_passwd ou=Users,ou=OxObjects,dc=yourdomain,dc=be?one nss_base_passwd ou=Computers,ou=OxObjects,dc=yourdomain,dc=be?one
In many howto's only one row for nss_base_passwd is used.
I'm a big disapointed with samba 3 upper of version 3.0.4(tested on 3.0.22 and 3.023c), using ldap as backend, I don't have a solution to split users and computers accounts... This is very annoying :(
Even if I put in smb.conf :
add machine script = /opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w '%u' ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
it doesn't work, it seems that this is never took in consideration. (I even tryed the old way to add machines, replacing '%u' by '%m').
I tested for the first time Nufw and this is the list of some points I noticed :
- not easy to compile, many files are missing in the client part
- users into openldap works but not the acl's, or I didn't find yet how ;-)
- I was not able to compile the gnome client
- no free version for windope
