How old? It's a Panasonic CF-35 with a 3G hard drive, a 266Mhz processor and little else. I insisted that what he needed to get the old girl back in the ball game was a simple Linux install. I still believe it to be true, however selecting the distro was more than I had imagined.

openSUSE 10.2 Alpha 5 Report

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE
-s

openSUSE 10.2 alpha 5 was released a couple of days ago, and I've been testing various aspects since its install. Coincidently, I decided to download the dvd version this time only to find out later that it was the only format available. Quite honestly, my decision was really made by distrowatch, when it was the first link in their announcement. Forgetting that I usually do deltas, I right clicked, copied, and pasted their link into a terminal for wget. For whatever reason I chose it, DVD format is the next best way to go. It makes for a much more pleasant install than a 5 cd change-out. But more importantly, what did we find after the install?

MySQL Master Master Replication

Filed under
HowTos

This tutorial describes how to set up MySQL master-master replication. We need to replicate MySQL servers to achieve high-availability (HA). In my case I need two masters that are synchronized with each other so that if one of them drops down, other could take over and no data is lost. Similarly when the first one goes up again, it will still be used as slave for the live one.
