Recently I have been migrating a Samba PDC and BDC from RHEL 4 to SLES 10 SP1. Everything went pretty well, until I started configuring the printers on the new Samba servers.
Recently I needed to run an application that needs X on a server running SLES10. Because it wasn't necessary to have the application output anything on a screen, the X virtual framebuffer was sufficient to accomplish this. You can easily install the X virtual framebuffer, which comes with the xvfb package in SLES10.
yast -i xorg-x11-Xvfb xorg-x11
Today I needed to enable the pure-uploadscript functionality in pure-ftpd on a SLES 10 server. According to the spec file, the pure-ftpd RPM has been built with the --enable-uploadscript option, so no need to start rebuilding anything.
Today, I passed the MySQL 5.0 DBA I exam.
Because I really dislike the default Ubuntu background color, and I always forget where to disable it:
I just installed a fresh WinXP virtual host on kvm on my Gentoo system. It didn't allow me to use the maximum resolution that my monitor supports (1440x900). So I started reading the kvm manual page, and found the
--std-vga option. After restarting my WinXP machine with this option, Windows was unable to find a driver for the graphics card. Too bad ...
Today I was working on a server running SLES10 with LDAP authentication enabled. I tried to add a local user account with home directory
/dev/null, but useradd complained that this was an invalid directory. So I manually edited
/etc/passwd and changed the home directory.
