So my woes with Apache-2.2.10 and chroot is continuing. Now I can start Apache in the chroot environment, and I thought all was well, but after additional testing, I found out that cURL does not work. Basically, cURL will return a empty string while it’s chroot’d. This is very weird to me, since the jail… Continue reading Apache-2.2.10 / Chroot and cURL is giving me some grief (SOLVED)
Hello all, this is primarily so I don’t forget how to do this in the future. I needed to get a dump of a single table out of a remote database. This is the mysqldump command to pull that off: mysqldump -p –user user databaseName tableName > out.sql
I have it figured out! This is originally referencing the trouble I was having starting apache-2.2.10 and using mod_chroot-0.5 (http://www.uno-code.com/?q=node/155). You cannot use mod_chroot with apache-2.2.10.

A friend of mine told me to emerge… Continue reading Pidgin MSN issues this morning

Apparently, Gentoo did away completely the `emerge sync` command/arg. I didn’t notice this, since I had a cron job that was running the following every night /usr/bin/emerge sync > /dev/null 2>&1 Obviously, I didn’t see the output since it was piped to /dev/null. This use to work and apparently they got rid of it completely.… Continue reading emerge –sync update
