My first entry!

Posted 12-02-2006 at 06:00 PM by polarbear20000

Ok - everyone don't get all choked up, now.

I've been spending more time immersed in my installation of Slackware 11, more so than Windows XP or the other distros listed in my info.

I'm fascinated. My wife is a little aggravated - since the housework suffers a little.

Installation of windows, linux

Posted 12-02-2006 at 12:14 AM by ruhler

My hard drive a few weeks ago started making this awful grinding noise. Its replacement showed up in the mail the other day, so I went about installing windows and linux.

The Windows installation was from the restore cd that came with my dell, which is two and a half years old now. The installation took (just windows and updates, no apps):

2 hours
6 reboots
83 windows updates
3 message boxes telling me to go to some website because otherwise...

Importing Evolution contacts into Kontact/KMail

Posted 12-01-2006 at 10:12 PM by Caysho

Now that Novell has signed it's deal with the devil, I'm moving from OpenSuSE 10 to Kubuntu 6.06 (I think I'm actually using 6.06.10).
I have been using Evolution since I started using linux a few years back (Mandrake 9.0), and now I want to get rid of it.

So I convert to KMail. It has mail import engines for a lot of mail clients, so I pull it all in, and it preserves my folder structure. As yet, I haven't found a method, convenient or otherwise, to get my mail filters from...

Secure Path load balance on Solaris

Posted 12-01-2006 at 12:57 PM by gparker

Last I heard (about 2 years ago), load balance wasn't supported on Solaris. Looks like it is now in 3.0D. Actually, I went through the release notes for B,C,D and I never saw it mentioned as new feature. Chris said he remembers seeing it in a doc somewhere.

JBoss Web

Posted 12-01-2006 at 09:27 AM by gparker

I've been tasked with install JBOSS web to evaluate it as a possible replacement for IIS as our "presentation layer". JBoss web is distributed as a standalone webserver running on top of the JBoss 4 microkernel. JBOSS web is not pure java, it contains native code, compiled, and optimized for each OS. The install is simply to unzip it, set my JAVA_HOME, and run "" from the bin directory. Errors may appear in the server.log.

It may be necessary to set my...
