Filed under
OSS

YaST (Yet another SUSE 10.1 RC2 Trial), Part 1

Filed under
Reviews

Even though I swore I'd keep Fedora Core around for a while, it only took 3 months before I replaced it with Suse (again). It's all Xgl's fault. The Kororaa Live CD is very cool. Since Xgl was created by a Novell engineer, and there are Xgl binaries for Suse, and since Suse is coming out with a new version, and (fintally!) since Xgl hasn't made it into Debian Sid yet, it made sense to install Suse to use as an Xgl testbed.

In fact, things seemed just fine. ...Until I fired up my trusted xawtv-3.95. It had problems. I was desperate enough to download the cvs snapshot of xawtv4 from February to test.

Stable kernels 2.6.16.10 and .11

Filed under
Linux

So far today there have been only two stable kernel releases. The announcement for 2.6.16.10 appears to have been swallowed by the net, although it contains a fairly large number of fixes (22 in the version posted for review) spread throughout the kernel. 2.6.16.11, instead, goes back to the "single security fix" mode.

Filed under
HowTos

The ubiquitous Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python (LAMP) combination powers many interactive Web sites and projects. It's not at all unusual for demand to exceed the capacity of a single LAMP-powered server over time. You can take load off by moving your database to a second server, but when demand exceeds a two-server solution, it's time to think cluster.
