See How Your BSD/Linux PC Compares To 36 Other Systems - Phoronix

phoronix logo If you happened to receive some new computer hardware this Christmas or are weighing a possible upgrade with Skylake PCs becoming more common and AMD Zen coming out next year, you might as well benchmark your system against our vast collection of other systems to see how the performance stacks up. In part due to crossing 500,000 benchmark results in the basement server room and as well since Phoromatic makes deploying new benchmark runs so trivial via benchmark tickets

Debian Admin--Debian/Ubuntu Linux System Administration Tutorials,Howtos,Tips

I’m  Gogs, who is a great fan of Debian as an Operating System. Not long ago, I started using Debian Operating System, but when I did start, this became my most delightful operating system.

I decided to create www.debianadmin.com for the community participate and be a part of something that should play a part in taking Debian to the next level. With the communities support, I’m sure Debian makes a mark and that we be a part of it.

bridge | The Linux Foundation

The Linux Foundation logo

A bridge is a way to connect two Ethernet segments together in a protocol independent way. Packets are forwarded based on Ethernet address, rather than IP address (like a router). Since forwarding is done at Layer 2, all protocols can go transparently through a bridge.

Debian -- The Universal Operating System

debian logo Debian is a free operating system (OS) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an operating system), but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux.

Greg Smith's Note Magnet: Linux disk failures: Areca is not so SMART

One of the most frequently asked questions on the PostgreSQL Performance list is "what disk controller works best with PostgreSQL?" It's a tough question; every product has different things it's good and bad at, and it can be hard to through all that to figure out what makes sense for your application. You need to focus equally on performance and reliability, as disk drives are very prone to failure.

SVG and its Path into the Linux Desktop

Computer graphics have long been dominated by bitmapped images. However, the free software community has taken an innovative lead by adopting scalable graphic formats on its desktops. Inthis article I cover the history and rise of scalable graphics on the desktop from my angle - as a proponent of its use in the GNOME platform.

Partners in Education

Last night FCPS held a ceremony for Partners in Education and MentorWorks. My company, Mitretek, won an award for Career Connections!

Here are some pictures of me in action.

This year is coming to a close. Next year will be even better as a 7th grader from this year will head up the team next year. I'm pulling him back from the dark side. He wants to get Linux running on an old machine, make it his web server, and host a web site for the club. He's learning PHP now.

Java Trap

I often get chided at work for preferring the Java programming language. My colleagues hold the opinion that it's not-free. Free here means open source. I disagree and recently read a Stallman "article" called Free But Shackled - The Java Trap.

The "article" basically says the license of the release is what matters, and not the dependencies of it. For example, in the history of GNU/Linux, there were times when there was no free kernel, or no free c library, or no free terminal software. Yet the applications that developers wrote were still considered free. Well it's the same with Java. There used to be a time when there were no free JVMs. Luckilly now there are.

This really pleases me. As most of you know, i use only open source software. Instead of using Sun Microsystems' release or Blackdown's release of Java, i'll use GCJ / GIJ or Kaffe.

These compliers and virtual machines are not as complete as Sun's, however there has been much improvement in recent years. A while back i remember getting Ant to run on GIJ. In the process, i found this bug which i hope is fixed by now.

Hurricane Delight, Linux 2.6.7 Compile Problem

I'm looking forward to some wonderful stormage. I'm fascinated by this rare wrath of Mother Nature.

Since linux doesn't yet support the on-board sound card in the G5, i decided to move the unused card from Two to Three.

When i recompiled the kernel -- the same one that currently running, 2.6.7 -- it fails with an error: Unrecognized opcode: lvx, among others. Tonight, yes TGIF, i plan to thouroughly debug the problem... No sleep 'till Brooklyn (plays on my computer).

G5 Sound

This won't happen anytime soon. Linux doesn't support the G5's builtin sound card.

Debian on G5, Sushi

I'm taking another stab at installing Debian GNU/Linux on my G5. The last attempt failed because SATA kernel modules weren't loaded. Even after loading them manually, the device files didn't exist.

Went out last night to downtown Bethesda with Mark. We got a late dinner at Raku. I'm finally learning the Japanese names for sushi. Nigiri are the ones with seafood over rice. Maki are the rolls. I had saba (mackeral) and Sake (salmon).
