SambaXP Misc

This blog entry is only some miscellaneous fun from my SambaXP expedition ;-)

The following pictures illustrate my multi-tasks capacity, I'm working very hard while reading my new PHP5 book :

Something I was very surprise was to find some Apollinaris water, I thing it was close to 15 years that I didn't drink/see any, so I had to take a shot of it :

SambaXP Episode 4

Jerry shows us some other nice features and some very dark uncommented features form our M$ friends.

One of those nice features is the possibility to setup a Service Control Delegation that allows users from certain groups to start or stop some services running on the GNU/Linux server like cups, apache...

MySQL Master-Master Replication

To set up a dual master replication with MySQL, only some modification must be done, it's very simple and there is a lot of howto's on the topic. This is my contribution with a basic setup and I've tried to gather common commands to maintain such solution.

The big picture :

The first step is to configure both mysql using the file my.cnf (usualy on /etc in GNU/Linux) :

SambaXP Episode 3

This morning we saw very cool stuff like printer migrations and still more management (like shares) from the Windows Remote Management Tools ! We also pointed the M$-DFS.

The new port feature added in 3.0.23 seems nice too. And we saw that the printers can be "managed" by regedit.

Once again it's a lot of M$ tools but the integration is very impressive... it's time for VT ;-)

SambaXP Episode 2b

And with the last beer of yesterday night, I present my colleague Stijn :

We arrived both at the same conclusion : Belgian Beers are really the best !

SambaXP Episode 1

Hello dear readers (if they are any ;-) ),

Since today I'm (with Stijn, a colleague) in Germany in Göttingen for SambaXP. I'll try to blog every time I have a break.

The first session of the tutorial by Jerry is very interesting but maybe a bit too fast. I can't imagine how difficult it is to follow this session for none samba experience people.

Perl Binary

Raskas asked me a question about the creation off a binary Perl script.

The goal of this was to run a Perl script on a machine where Perl is not installed.

perlcc should be our friend... but some dependencies were still giving troubles, so I tried to find another solution, here is a summary of my small research :

first, the Perl script's source (Copyright fred... but in GPL !) :

The hard reality of Belgium

I spend in average 1/6 of a day on in my car ! With all the disadvantages of that : backache, stress and the most... wasting my time :-(

I've tried to leave at every hour, early morning :

late :

always with the same result :

Comments are again open

This post to announce that comments are again open on my blog. So don't hesitate to contribute, I'll try to reply to comments as frequently as I can.

As you can notice, there is small modification on the form requesting for very deep mathematical knowledge ;-)

Fedora Core 6 and Personal File Sharing

Something I discovered with Fedora Core 6 is the Personal File Sharing, even if this feature is not new, but I didn't install it on my previous gentoo box.

So I decided to try it with a colleague, Den Raf, and we had some troubles, to set it up it's very easy... but to use it with nautilus it wasn't so easy...

First step: enable it :

Go into System->Preferences menu and select "Personal File Sharing" as follow :
