Jerry shows us some other nice features and some very dark uncommented features form our M$ friends.
One of those nice features is the possibility to setup a Service Control Delegation that allows users from certain groups to start or stop some services running on the GNU/Linux server like cups, apache...
To set up a dual master replication with MySQL, only some modification must be done, it's very simple and there is a lot of howto's on the topic. This is my contribution with a basic setup and I've tried to gather common commands to maintain such solution.
The big picture :
The first step is to configure both mysql using the file my.cnf (usualy on /etc in GNU/Linux) :
And with the last beer of yesterday night, I present my colleague Stijn :
We arrived both at the same conclusion : Belgian Beers are really the best !
This is the second episode of the day, it doesn't require any comment :
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 !
