The "-S" parameter to du lists each folders total on it's own, rather then including subfolders. Very useful for finding which specific folder has all the files in it.
The 9.0.1 Plesk packages for Debian 4.0 will install and work on Debian 5.0, EXCEPT for psa-proftpd (OpenSSL library version issue). The psa-proftpd package from 9.2.3 (first version with official Debian 5.0 support) will install correctly into Plesk 9.0.1 and appears to work correctly.
I used these instructions to make WGA play nice
with my TinyXP VM install. I used the "copy-paste into registry file" method described. I also blocked 184.108.40.206 at my network firewall, which may or may not have been required for this to work.
Python, Doxygen and Graphviz
Wrote a Python utility to parse Doxygen XML output and produce class relationships, using the same data as CALL_GRAPH. This produces a map of "which classes call functions on other classes", versus what Doxygen produces is "this function calls these other functions". Still needs work, currently it includes more then just classes, and needs to handle global functions correctly.
Amarok was basically unusable on my shared system. I moved from using SQLite3 (stored in ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/collection.db ) to MySQL (running on the same host, stored in /var/lib/mysql - different partitions). The process for porting from SQLite3 to MySQL
was straightforward. Performance has improved greatly.
This may be due to the /home file system needing a good fsck and defrag, or due to SQLite3 vs MySQL performance, I can't tell at this point.
