Uhoh... ethernet card problems again...

Posted 03-30-2009 at 02:41 PM by shannonbay

So it turns out Slack 12.2 didn't really fix the card. However I found a driver (tg3) on Hardware4Linux.info so will try modprobe -vv tg3 next time eth0 disappears. Not sure if I would need to do anything else. If all else fails, perhaps it's a firmware issue as suggested.

Have downloaded the ATI vga module, will set that up later.

I forgot to mention that I figured out how to make lilo boot straight into Slackware - just comment out 'prompt' in lilo.conf and then...

Hardware update

Posted 04-04-2009 at 05:44 PM by shannonbay

Got my mouse scroll wheel working. Just uncomment the following line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
Option: "Protocol" "Auto"
As for the network card, it's still coming up dead on some bootups, but I discovered that it probably is a firmware issue. In my BIOS POST logs, there are regular occurrences of an NIC Failure. Will have to hunt around for firmware. It was suggested to me that power management might have something to do with it, but I didn't notice any...

Automated MySQL backups

Posted 09-15-2009 at 01:50 PM by jkzfixme
Updated 09-15-2009 at 04:00 PM by jkzfixme

Lately I had two SQL servers crash and thankfully have implemented a pretty good backup solution using a script called AutoMySQLBackup, which uses mysqldump to create SQL dumps of your databases. Here is the play by play so you to can get back up and running with expedience. I am assuming the use of ubuntu in this tutorial as that is what I typically use, although the only real difference here is in the sudo command. If you are using a different distro just disregard any sudo's and login as root....

upgrade ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10

Posted 11-03-2009 at 12:01 PM by itbod

Uh Oh my ugrade manager says a new version of ubuntu is ready to download and install! I panic at this as the last time I upgraded to 9.04 I enounted so many problems I ended up installing from scratch losing all my data.

If there was an easy way to backup the entire system it would be brilliant. By the way, i used to run 8.10 which ran perfectly 9.04 crashes frequently, screen goes blank and will not recover causing me to do a hard re-boot which of course corrupts data. I asked...
