linux chrono


tuxi started with redhat 5.2 back in 1998, almost 10 years ago. then slackware 7 taught me about the nuances of compiling software in 2000. redhat 8/9 came along and showed me how cool packaged software was. debian woody showed me how awesome it is to automatically resolve dependencies in packages in a stable but dated environment.

i made the switch to ubuntu today, taking the best (worst?) of debian’s package management and bringing current software packages to the server/desktop.

growing pains? not as bad as i thought. i got an extra box set up in about three hours, ready to slide into place after last night’s screw-ups. this included samba, mysql, apache, php4, php5, cacti, APC UPS software, cron jobs, and shell scripts.

trying to get some nifty features in place for my trackmania server, i royally borked my mysql installation and how it plays w/ cacti. ugh. i’ll be loading up a spare drive w/ ubuntu and making php4 (for cacti,) php5 (for anything new,) and mysql 5 play nice together.

i hate sysadmin stuff sometimes.
