Subject: File under 'disturbing': Debian Wheezy doesn't ship with the Synaptic Package Manager

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

My current Debian Wheezy installation is an upgrade from Squeeze, so I was unprepared for what just happened: I'm doing a bunch of installs in between my other work, and I just got around to a traditional Wheezy desktop installation with the GNOME desktop using netinstall image. I was unprepared for the only GUI package manager to be GNOME Package Kit. No Synaptic Package Manager. Not even the "Sofware Center" ported from Ubuntu that shipped in Squeeze.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Recently I have shown that Intel graphics hit a high point with the Linux 3.6 kernel and that Ubuntu 12.10 is faster with Intel hardware compared to the current Ubuntu 12.04 LTS release. In this article are more Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs. Ubuntu 12.10 benchmarks to highlight the performance improvements for Intel Sandy Bridge graphics that will be found in Ubuntu 12.10.

Subject: Creating Advanced MySQL-Based Virtual Hosts On Lighttpd (Debian Squeeze)

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This guide explains how you can create advanced virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Squeeze that are stored in a MySQL database. The method described here does not use the lighttpd mod_mysql_vhost module, and unlike mod_mysql_vhost (which allows you to store only the hostname and document root of a vhost in a database), this method allows to store individual configuration directives for each vhost in the MySQL database.

Subject: Cacti Makes Device Monitoring Simple

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Every organization must monitor its infrastructure’s uptime and performance. While the popular Nagios application is a good general-purpose monitoring program that you can extend with plugins to handle just about any task, you may do even better by employing Cacti as a graphical front end to RRDTool‘s data logging and graphing functionality. Cacti was developed specifically to monitor and collect performance information, while Nagios is more oriented toward state changes, such as noting whether a daemon is up or down.RRDTool stores all of the necessary information to create graphs and populate them with data in a MySQL database. Cacti provides templates to gather and show information such as system load (CPU, RAM, disks), users connected, MySQL load, and Apache load, all of which can affect the performance of your site.

Subject: Linux Forums Etiquette

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This is a really good article on etiquette to use on Linux forums, for everyone that wish to post on them, the original article was written by Megatotoro and published on http://linuxmigrante.blogspot.it As a relatively new migrant to Tuxland, I’ve come to learn that Linux forums are a rich source of advice, useful information and help. They have also let me find wonderful people. Some of them are very knowledgeable of the penguin’s intricacies and others are not so seasoned, but their will to help is indeed contagious. However, some people have had negative experiences when entering a Linux forum and asking for help. These disgruntled new migrants get a bitter flavor of Linux and a number of them leave and never return.
