Ubuntu scp stall resolved

Posted 09-24-2008 at 06:34 AM by Vermind

I had been troubled for long by my Ubuntu server not uploading files with scp or rsync properly. The transfers would hang at a little bit over 2MB, and never proceed from there. I asked on the Ubuntu forums about this, and yesterday received a fix suggestion that worked for me. The fix entails adding lines to /etc/sysctl.conf that change the default net and IPv4 behaviour, like so:

Code:
net.core.rmem_default = 524288
net.core.rmem_max = 524288

Howto: making slackware packages from source without slackbuilds

Posted 12-30-2008 at 06:33 PM by ErV

[SIZE="5"][b]Making slackware packages from source[/b][/SIZE]

I'm posting this because some people have problems with making packages from source code, and howto where I learned how to do it isn't available anymore.

[color=red][b]WARNING![/b][/color]:
1) howto is pretty short and doesn't dive into details too much (although I initially thought about overview of commonly used build systems).
2) This doesn't work for all packages, only for most...
