Arch Linux Compared to Other Distributions

archlinux  Arch Linux Compared to Other Distributions This page attempts to draw a comparison between Arch Linux and other popular GNU/Linux distributions and UNIX-like operating systems. The summaries that follow are brief descriptions that may help a person decide if Arch Linux will suit their needs. Although reviews and descriptions can be useful, first-hand experience is invariably the best way to compare distributions.

Source-based

Source-based distros are highly portable, giving the advantage of controlling and compiling the entire OS and applications for a particular machine architecture and usage scheme, with the disadvantage of the time-consuming nature of source compilation. The Arch base and all packages are compiled for i686 and x86-64 architectures, offering a potential performance boost over i386/i486/i586 binary distros, with the added advantage of expedient installation.

VMware ESX, EMC CLARiiON Arrays, and Multiple Protocols

vmware view pilot VMware ESX, EMC CLARiiON Arrays, and Multiple Protocols VMware ESX, EMC CLARiiON Arrays, and Multiple Protocols by Scott Lowe
I was browsing through an EMC technical document titled “EMC CLARiiON Integration with VMware ESX Server” (download it here) a little while ago and I came across a phrase in the document that caught my attention:

“VMware ESX/ESXi support both Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage. However, VMware and EMC do not support connecting VMware ESX/ESXi servers to CLARiiON Fibre Channel and iSCSI devices on the same array simultaneously.”

What? No Fibre Channel and iSCSI from the same array to a VMware ESX/ESXi host simultaneously? That piqued my curiosity, so I contacted a few people within EMC to question the veracity of that statement. It turns out that the answer is more complicated than it might seem at first glance.

How to Installation and Configuration BIND DNS Server on CentOS 5.3

How to Installation and Configuration BIND DNS Server on CentOS 5.3
BIND, stands for Berkeley Internet Name Domain, is the most commonly used Domain Name System (DNS) server (or simply name server) on the Internet. On UNIX-Like systems it is the de facto standard. BIND was originally created by four graduate students at the Computer Systems Research Group (CSRG) at University of California, Berkeley, and was first released with 4.3BSD. Paul Vixie started maintaining it in 1988 while working for DEC. Today, BIND is maintained by the ISC (Internet Systems Consortium). BIND is by far the most widely used DNS server software on the Internet. It provides a robust and stable platform on top of which organizations can build distributed computing systems with the knowledge that those systems are fully compliant with published DNS standards.

Getting Started:
In this tutorial I will demonstrate how to setup BIND DNS Server on CentOS 5.3. Use your favorite editor to edit configuration files. I use nano.
We start off by installing required packages. Following is the list of packages associated with DNS:

How to disable scripts and styles

Many plugins and themes add JavaScript and CSS files to your site. While this alone isn’t necessarily a bad thing, using several plugins that do this can bog down your site with loads of requests for these files.

The good news is that WordPress has a built-in system that allows us to deregister these scripts and styles.

Wait, don’t the plugins require this code? Probably. But, we want to take control of these files and make our sites run faster. Disabling these scripts and styles will allow us to do a few things:

How to Resolve Fatal Error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 30720 bytes)

Recently, when either adding new plugins or upgrading plugins in WordPress, I encountered this error message:

  • Fatal Error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 30720 bytes)…
  • This means that WordPress needs more memory to run a process than the default PHP setting (usually 12M, in some, 32M). For a non-techie guy like me, the error is frustrating, and very alarming.

    Before you panic, there are actually simple solutions to this problem that even a non-techie person can do. The first solution is the “standard” or proper way to resolve it, however, it depends whether you have access to the file that needs to be updated. The second one is much easier, a “hack” to a specific WordPress file, however, you may need to do it again everytime you perform a WordPress upgrade.
