Preparing a new box

So, I’ve started preparing a new box for Gentoo/FreeBSD beside farragut. Actually I started yesterday in my so-called break, as I’m going to need it for a job (I need to work with PHP and MySQL 4.1, and I don’t want to have them on my workstation or on farragut itself πŸ˜‰ ). This will also give me the opportunity of keyword more stuff, and you’ll now see that also PHP 4.4 is available on Gentoo/FreeBSD (at least for basic options), yuppie! πŸ™‚

Unfortunately, seems like I did something wrong either when putting it up or with the stage, I’m not yet sure, as rpc.lockd dies at fork, and so does MySQL :/

A part that, I’ve now two boxes where distcc sends the data to build, watching freebsd-lib that compiles at -j5 is really good πŸ˜‰ I also already installed the cross compiler for PowerPC on that box, so that I can use the three of them to be distcc servers for the poor iBook.

New box at hand, I also keyworded a few more things, like hunspell and myspell-{it,en}.. you won’t probably know why, but they are dependencies of OpenOffice, and as I remembered people being working on having it built with GCJ, and that would help to get it working on Gentoo/FreeBSD πŸ˜‰ Thanks a lot to Kevin for having committed the libtool patch to have it built as a shared library, too πŸ™‚

On a different note, my β€œno coke” policy is doing fine, it’s not 5 days and it’s the longest time I didn’t drink Coca-Cola in the last few years πŸ™‚ Although, I admit, it’s going to be difficult as the temperature is increasing too much for my likes.
Why oh why do I leave in southern Europe? πŸ˜›

  1. No cola for 5 days? I’d already be 6 feet under, if i was living a little more to the south. Hopefully poland is quite cool, at least as far as temperature is concerned.
