Desktop Search In Ubuntu Intrepid (And Debian) In KDE 4.2

Desktop Search In Ubuntu Intrepid (And Debian) In KDE 4.2

Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 features an inbuilt desktop search. Unfortunately I never managed to get it to work right and I tried a lot of things. So I finally went on irc.freenode.org into the #strigi channel and asked for help. Lucky me Phreedom in there gave me a helping hand. Why Nepomuk doesn't work by default is still a mystery. I think this is related to Redland instead of Soprano. Unfortunately, as Phreedom told me, the Ubuntu and Debian maintainers don't supply Soprano with the current builds. Also his recommendation is to use KDE 4.2 (Kubuntu 8.10 comes with KDE 4.1).

How To Upgrade A Debian Etch System (Server & Desktop) To Debian Lenny

How To Upgrade A Debian Etch System (Server & Desktop) To Debian Lenny

This article shows how you can upgrade a system running Debian Etch to Debian Lenny. It is intended for both server and desktop systems.

The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) [ISPConfig 2]

The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) [ISPConfig 2]

This tutorial shows how to set up a Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig 2 (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).

Virtualization With Xen 3.3.1 On Debian Etch

Virtualization With Xen 3.3.1 On Debian Etch

This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Xen on a Debian Etch (4.0) system. Xen lets you create guest operating systems (*nix operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD), so called "virtual machines" or domUs, under a host operating system (dom0). Using Xen you can separate your applications into different virtual machines that are totally independent from each other (e.g. a virtual machine for a mail server, a virtual machine for a high-traffic web site, another virtual machine that serves your customers' web sites, a virtual machine for DNS, etc.), but still use the same hardware. This saves money, and what is even more important, it's more secure. If the virtual machine of your DNS server gets hacked, it has no effect on your other virtual machines. Plus, you can move virtual machines from one Xen server to the next one.

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Debian Etch

How To Set Up Apache2 With mod_fcgid And PHP5 On Debian Etch

This tutorial describes how you can install Apache2 with mod_fcgid and PHP5 on Debian Etch. mod_fcgid is a compatible alternative to the older mod_fastcgi. It lets you execute PHP scripts with the permissions of their owners instead of the Apache user.

Caching With Apache's mod_cache On Debian Etch

Caching With Apache's mod_cache On Debian Etch

This article explains how you can cache your web site contents with Apache's mod_cache on Debian Etch. If you have a high-traffic dynamic web site that generates lots of database queries on each request, you can decrease the server load dramatically by caching your content for a few minutes or more (that depends on how often you update your content).

Installing PowerDNS (With MySQL Backend) And Poweradmin On Debian Etch

Installing PowerDNS (With MySQL Backend) And Poweradmin On Debian Etch

This article shows how you can install the PowerDNS nameserver (with MySQL backend) and the Poweradmin control panel for PowerDNS on a Debian Etch system. PowerDNS is a high-performance, authoritative-only nameserver - in the setup described here it will read the DNS records from a MySQL database (similar to MyDNS), although other backends such as PostgreSQL are supported as well. Poweradmin is a web-based control panel for PowerDNS.

How To Convert Physical Systems And Xen VMs Into OpenVZ Containers (Debian Etch)

How To Convert Physical Systems And Xen VMs Into OpenVZ Containers (Debian Etch)

This guide explains how you can convert physical systems (running Debian Etch) or Xen domUs (also running Debian Etch) into an OpenVZ container. This procedure should also work for converting VMware VMs, VirtualBox VMs, or KVM VMs into OpenVZ containers, but I haven't tried this. It should work for other Linux distributions as well, with minor modifications (for example, the network configuration is not located in /etc/network/interfaces if you're not on Debian/Ubuntu).

Port Triggering Using A NAT Firestarter Firewall And Specter In Debian/Ubuntu

Port Triggering Using A NAT Firestarter Firewall And Specter In Debian/Ubuntu

Many that play PC games, such as battle.net, need to be able to set up port triggering. Typical "hardware" routers have the ability to set this up from online menus. However, using a Linux PC to perform your router functions can provide much more control and versatility than can be realized with a "hardware" router. All of your NAT (network address translation), firewall, and port forwarding functions can be implemented by iptables, the de facto firewall in Linux versions 2.4.x and 2.6.x.
