Rsyslog-4.6.3 .spec

Posted 07-29-2010 at 12:59 AM by unSpawn

Rsyslog is a Syslog replacement. Centos5U5 provides rsyslog-3.22.1-3.el5.i386 but the development branch is at 5.5.6 and the stable release is 4.6.3. Here's a .spec file that will build 4.6.3-1 (this wasn't derived from the 3.22.1 .src.rpm .spec so YMMV(VM) as usual):

%define debug_packages	%{nil}
%define debug_package %{nil}
%define name rsyslog
%define ver 4.6.3
%define rel 1

Name: %{name}
Summary: Enhanced system logging

robotics stuff

Posted 07-28-2010 at 02:35 AM by peonuser

Built code in freebasic to control stepper motors from the parallel port. Robotics are addictive,

Built a test circuit to mess with stepper motors, but I had a wrong chip. See If I can locate one tomorrow.

My brother gave me a used bare bones computer. Have not decided what to do with it yet. Need to test it to see if it even works.

I love linux.

Once, not so long ago, I actually had a website---but it ran into some trouble: suspensions. It seems I had some stuff that the hosts (which were free, so I can't complain to much---and I'm not so much complaining as providing back story) didn't like (as far as I've been able to determine, they didn't like my how-to for archiving VHS cassettes to DVD), and thus my site kept getting suspended.

Linux Space Efficiency Testimonial

Posted 07-27-2010 at 04:53 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

Running a mature Ubuntu system, with dozens of games installed ( Including Tremulous, Sauerbraten, Nexuiz and Warsow ), this is my partition usage ( from df -h ) :

Filesystem            Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5              20G  8.2G   11G  44% /
/dev/sda3              89M   64M   21M  76% /boot
/dev/sda7             169G   30G  131G  19% /home
8.2GB contains everything in my installation not including private files or my bootloader.
