Windows-like folder organization for binaries and libraries through symbolic links?

Posted 11-25-2011 at 04:28 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just another of those things I catch myself wondering sometimes, but I don't think that are important enough for the forums.

What if linux had folders for each program, more or less like on windows, but still had its "grab-bag" folders for libraries and whatever that may be used for more than one program, but instead of using it through a "$path", it had a symlink within the program's own folder?

Or perhaps it could use by default through something...

msmtp certificate, tls_trust_file, verified

Posted 11-25-2011 at 09:50 AM by ted_chou12

Hi, I recently installed msmtp, I tried a lot of certificates, the one that I found to work was in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
If you by any chance don't have it in that directory, it could be partial install or something. (It should come with the package).
Email me if you need it.

Iptables rule traversal: bandwidth at >= 10K of IP addresses

Anyone who is interested in iptables performance will find Harris, Melara, Smith and Nico's "Performance analysis of the Linux firewall in a host" (2002) and Kadlecsik and Pásztor's "Netfilter Performance Testing" (2005). But what actually is the effect of a large rule set on performance?

The attached PDF I created is not an an exhaustive study of Netfilter performance but shows you Jperf data and pictures (joy!) for plain rule sets, ipset (iphash) and the iptables...

Migration from Solaris 10 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Posted 11-23-2011 at 11:15 PM by bits45

We've been using Solaris 10 on Sparc and x86 for years. With the recent Oracle takeover and the lack of OSS movement (updates) from Sun (too little, too late), we've been moving all of our Apache and MySQL servers to RHEL 5.7. In most cases we've stayed on the same exact Egenera Nehalem pBlades and used the same SAN storage. So all the hardware is exactly the same. The speed increase comparison between Solaris 10 and RHEL has been nothing short of amazing. Seems like everything goes faster...

openSUSE 12.1 GNOME Clean-Up

Posted 11-22-2011 at 07:22 PM by wagscat123

Even though there technically is no connection between the releases in the 11.x series, I'm still very happy to see 12.x out now. (11.0-11.4 all had been under Novell, used KDE4 by default and used GNOME 2)

Something I've learned about openSUSE 12.1:

1. To imitate GNOME 3 as much as possible
Unlike previous changes to the GNOME default look, it is impossible to bring GNOME 100% back to the way to was before. However, you can make it look much more similar.
