comment Development DB server with dedicated hardware
Thanks for reviving this ancient post, but I'm afraid I don't even have this hardware any more :) Good tip on the SSDs though.

comment Debian package bigger than the source files
You should really check what is taking up that much space in your .deb. Statically linking libraries can make the compiled files bigger, but I doubt that it would grow that much…

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 that's very odd indeed. Since PING works from from the Guest OS to other computers on the network, that would mean that two-way communication is working, so something is blocking ICMP (and probably others too) from reaching the Guest OS from other parts of the local network. Did you check the firewall settings in your Host OS?

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 if you enable ICS, that may help you get Internet connection in the guest OS, but since your host is Windows, it will require you to set the host-only network adapter's IP to 192.168.0.1 (at least that was the case with Windows XP). If you want access from other machines on your network, you should probably go with bridged interfaces instead.

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
@user907560 that's odd, do you see the network bridge in Network Adapter Settings in your Windows 7 host? Check its properties to see if maybe ICMP packets are being blocked somehow. (I assume you're using the bridge mode, not NAT, right?)

comment tcpdump shows traffic until I use a filter
Yes, your filter is valid. Are you absolutely sure there is traffic on that port? Have you tried running two instances at the same time, one with the grep, the other one with the filter?

comment VirtualBox Bridged Network to Debian Fails to connect
Bridging will use the same network, it does not create a different network. So if your router/modem is 192.168.1.1, your host OS is, say, 192.168.1.2, you can set the guest OS to 192.168.1.3 and then try network access.

comment I've to test old HIPPI network cards in Linux. How can I do this?
@KaaiKivi oh right, you probably don't have the runtime config support in your kernel. Can you modprobe hippi? If not, it is either compiled in into your kernel, or not present at all. Maybe try compiling a kernel with CONFIG_HIPPI enabled. See cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/HIPPI.html for details.

@KaaiKivi do you have the kernel modules for the card? IOW, what is the output of zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CONFIG_HIPPI?

comment Will including the CSS & JS in the HTML improve page load times and / or server performance?
@LordLoh. mgorven meant concatenate them to a single file each, not a signle file consisting of both the JS and the CSS.

comment Can I have Varnish connect to a backend using a unix domain socket?
Ow, I see. Thanks anyway, I'll just use localhost:port until this gets implemented.

comment Development DB server with dedicated hardware
Thank you very much for the hard drive suggestions. I think I'll go with a RAID10, although I'll need to read more on the subject. But these are good advice for starters, thanks.

Yep, while the USB drives are handy for a laptop, it seems I'll need to go with SATA drives. I don't plan on virtualizing mu whole environment right now, although that might be an option to consider for the future. Thanks for your help.

comment Crap I nuked /usr/build/libtool [on lenny]
@Michael Graff I use sudo quite often, so I like to tweak my sudoers file so that I can run certain programs without entering a password. When I'm asked for a password, I know it is time to double-check things. This incident was on a server over ssh, without a tweaked sudoers file; so I guess I should have double-checked things. I know, bad habit... But then again, not a big loss. Still I can't find where that package comes from. Anyway, a symlink seems to be quite sufficient.

comment Crap I nuked /usr/build/libtool [on lenny]
well then, thanks for taking the time to use your five seconds. It was helpful. @wzzrd @Zypher: thanks for the correction. Unfortunately dpkg -S /usr/build/libtool shows me dpkg: /usr/build/libtool not found. So I keep on living with the symlink from /usr/bin/libtool.
