Using SRSS on RHEL4

Heya,Well I’ve spent hours looking for this information so I thought it was pertinent to paste it here:

Have attached a HTML dump just in case I lose it again. 🙂


Well well well…

Sally insisted I put this on Seekbrain. I’m learning to drive, I kinda spun the wheels and it was a wet night:

I guess I’m supposed to laugh. 😉


WinFS Dead


No major surprise but WinFS is as dead as a doornail. Sure, ‘they‘ like to say it’s simply morphed and instead it’s being included in enterprise products. To me that simply means it’s a modification to an existing database product. Come on Microsoft, you’ve been selling this whole WinFS crap for years and now you’ve dropped the project?

Give me JFS or ReiserFS anyday.


GFS 6.1 (S)RPMs released

Hey all,

Have been implementing GFS clustered multipath file systems at work and consequently had to rebuild RPMs for CentOS4 using the 32.0.1 kernels. Consequently I’ve released GFS SRPM and RPM sets over here. I’ve also migrated the old GFS RPMs (6.0 series) to the obsolete directory structure and created a yum2 archive for people to add to their repo lists.

Modifications from the original RPMs are:

  • Modified target kernel from 32.EL to 32.0.1.EL since this is the current kernel for CoS4.3
  • Modified some minor dependency requirements which appear to have been lacking from upstream (aka Redhat)

Interestingly this release now includes system-config-cluster (aka the Redhat cluster config tool albeit retooled to avoid TM infringement) which in previous releases wasn’t publicly released by RH. Thanks RH, much appreciated. 🙂
