LowLands: Another view
Aangezien ik momenteel het programma boekje een beetje kwijt ben, en geen zin heb om te zoeken zijn bepaalde dingen nog niet ingevuld, zoals wat commentaar over leuke bandjes geven en theater dingen die we gezien hebben. Daarom ziet deze post er nog steeds uit als iets in working order. Het lijkt er trouwens wel op alsof dit de langste post ooit zal worden :) (more)
Building an open relay trap
- mynetworks = 0.0.0.0/0 (obviously to make it accept everything)
- relayhost = 127.0.0.1 (to make it relay to it self)
- inet_interfaces = $external_ip (only the external ip so that localhost will give connection refused, the external ip is hidden to make the spamtrap work)
That's a quite easy setup for an open relay trap. Anybody that has improvements may provide them :) (more)
RT 3.0.11 with PostGreSQL
This problem is caused by using ILIKE's instead of = for matching integers. I urge everyone to upgrade to DBIx::SearchBuilder 1.01 (current in CPAN) to fix this issue. Response times are now down to around 1 second instead of 30+ seconds, this is ofcourse thanks to the indexes that are now used.
Upgrading DBIx::SearchBuilder to version 1.01 does not improve performance for MySQL (which you actually should not use at all ;)
ClamAV Database Mirror
I also have 19000 unique sites that have contacted the mirror, so we can assume there are quite some clamav users out there.
If you wish to use the mirror, enter clamav.unnet.nl in your freshclam setup. Or use the db.nl.clamav.net dns entry for all dutch mirrors (roundrobin).
So ofcourse I've also created an bzFlag server. Comfortly located on my workstation at work (as it wouldn't build on Solaris). You can talk to it at bzflag.unnet.nl Hope to see you soon at the firing range ;)
Hummzz actually I was bzFlagging all night till 0:30 ;)
Installing a Jabber Server
Ok problems compiling :( After running configure as:
./configure --enable-idn --enable-ssl --disable-mysql --disable-db --enable-
And then running make I get the following error: (more)
Windows XP Service Pack 2
It can be found at the FTP site of Unilogic Networks at ftp.unnet.nl
Drupal and Company Websites
Database driven websites rule :) Make it much easier to setup :)
Moving the SunFreeware mirror
The IP address will change to 126.96.36.199, however the hostnames will stay the same!
WarWalking in Downtown Sittard
I noticed there are quite some access points in downtown sittard, especially around the bars are a lot of OPEN accesspoints to be found :)
As always a current wifi map of Sittard can be found at .kismac. Check it out here.
A closer look at downtown Sittard is here ;)
Solaris 9 and SunWorks CC
I'm particulary afraid what is going to happen with my own perl build. A lot of stuff relies on it, for example MT but also a lot of handinstalled CPAN modules. I guess that will cause a lot of recompiling to do :(
I'll keep you posted on issues I am going to run into. (more)
Solaris 9's Crontab
But after setting up the crontab for my debian mirror (which is hosted on a other company machine which is running Debian) I decided it would be time to fix the crontab entry on solaris.
After some research I found out that Solaris logs crontab messages to /var/cron/log (which is actually pretty predictable logging for Solaris). The log entries for the updating of the sunfreeware mirror looked something like this:
> CMD: /usr/local/bin/update-sunfreeware
> ftp 21022 c Fri Jul 30 06:00:00 2004
! bad user (ftp) Fri Jul 30 06:00:00 2004
So we are talking about a bad user here. Well actually the user is all there and running in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow. But hey wait, the FTP account is locked. Well I found that normal behaviour, but guess what, crontab expects a password there, else the account is not good and is a bad user!
So I've created an additional account called 'mirror' to setup the mirroring and yes this account does carry an password to let the crontab do it's work.
Maybe it's time to setup some more automatic mirroring scripts for the rest of the mirrored software on polaris.
Clamav DB and Debian Mirror
- unstable, testing, stable
- i386 and powerpc architecture
The mirror is still in it's initial build stage. I had to repartition the mirror server to supply for the space as some n00b partitioned it wrong and left a gaping 40G unpartitioned on the machine. ETA on mirror running will be around 22:00 this evening.
It will be accessible using FTP (powered by vsftpd) and HTTP at ftp://debian.unnet.nl/ or http://debian.unnet.nl/.
Converting Movable Type to use PostGreSQL instead of db3
- Install all postgresql related perl things (DBI::postgres to be exact)
- Edit mt.cfg to include the DataSource AND the Database information
- Run mt-db2sql.cgi
- Remove datasource from your mt.cfg
- Enjoy and post a message on your weblog that you just converted your weblog
So I did it ;) Db3 was acting kinda sluggish, and I had the need for postgres on my sun for some time now, so I did it :)
Doom III, idSoftware's latest incarnation
Oh and guess who owns martianbuddy.nl ;)
Scanning and Printing the UNIX way
Printing was fairly easy. Attach the printer to a linux box, make the kernel ready for parallel printing, install cups, configure it and deploy IPP around to make it work on the other boxes. Works like a charm.
Scanning on the other hand is stil not realised here. It works on the box it's attached to, but making it work over the network to a windows box is another issue. It justs borks. Won't work for some reason. Something to get working this week.
To test the scanner setup I've scanned our Rock Werchter 2004 pictures, which can be found here
