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 :

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 :

Fedora Core 6 + Dual Head on Dell Latitude D620

I'm very happy with my new D620, but of course I couldn't use FC6 out of the box (the iso in fact). I had some troubles with the Xorg resolution but google is my friend and I was able to have 1440x900 using the 915resolution program.

The laptop is able to run Compiz, so everything is nice in the best world... but (there is always a but) using a dual head configuration crashes always my X :(

I found that it's due to Compiz (or beryl) so I guess it's something to do with AIXGL... if somebody as a solution...

Bad day for PHP programming

Desperate PHP developer... that's what I am today... why ?

Due to an ugly PHP bug with PHP provided with FC6 (maybe on other distributions too). I already spent some time to find that it was a bug, previously I was using sqlite with the sqlite PHP functions, but since I use the FC6, to have the support of sqlite, PDO must be used... so I did !
