cron.daily on SLES

2010-08-19 stintel  2 minute read

Have you ever noticed that if you put cron jobs in /etc/cron.daily on a SLES machine, they seem to run at random times? I noticed it a few times, and I find it to be really annoying. Say, I rebooted a machine yesterday around 14:00, and today at 14:15, the machine starts rebuilding the man db, backing up the rpm db, cleaning /tmp, rotating logs, etc. Huh?! Looks like a bad idea to do such things when the system is currently in use by multiple people. Imagine that you put a database backup in there, and that backup locks your database...

SLES10 and pure-uploadscript

2008-02-13 stintel  1 minute read

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.
