Building and compiling

Nothing much today:

  • crossover plugin finally started to work (problem was with the NIC, not with the plugin itself).
  • MySQL rpms for version 3.23.49 built good, but no changes noticed in handling foreign keys/references. Maybe it’s just me.
  • 2.4.18 kernel rpms were built good too. Probably I will upgrade my machine tomorrow. Reasons for upgrade: new scheduler and fixes in USB.

Random bits

While studing the subject of migration from Microsoft to Linux, I came accross nice description of how to set up authentification of Linux box in NT domain.

I also changed all links on this page in such a way that printed version is readable and actually usefull :)

I have installed bash programmable completion. While it is a littl bit noisy about me not having bash of exactly the version it needs, I still get a lot of satisfaction. My TAB hit/miss ratio has grown incredeably, since I was pushing TAB key for most of the times I use it now anyway (huh? :) ).

Officially, from today I am using Mozilla instead of Opera. Opera is fine browser and it suits all my needs, but it is not an open source software, which I wish it very much to be. Idiology…
