Rotating MySQL server log files

Posted 03-09-2012 at 06:09 PM by anomie

This may seem like an inconsequential, overly specific topic, but I'm posting here because - following a couple 'net searches - I observed a dearth of helpful information on MySQL server log file rotation. All the resources I found on the topic essentially said:
  • Use logrotate(8) -- 95% of the hits I found; or

Installing VMware Player on Slackware based Linux.

Posted 03-09-2012 at 02:45 AM by stretchedthin

Seems there are a couple tricks to installing VMware on a Slackware based system. The question was raised on the forum by a member who was stuck and it needed an answer. So I downloaded from "https://www.vmware.com/tryvmware/", ran into a wierd problem with the installer just aborting and not giving much in the way of clues, as to why. Some google-fu saved the day and this is how it is done.

Uploaded a video to youtube with all the details.
