web - php - question

Hi. I have not got a clue in designing web pages, so I usually pay someone to design the pages and give me the code back. ( A coder I might be - but an artist I am not) So I then hack the pages to install and integrate the PHP code that I need afterwards eg. database accesses and loading dropdown bo...

Hi. Just a rock into the bush. Years ago we had problems with people overusing pointers in c that to this day makes me weep. pointers to pointers to functions of pointers etc. etc. Everything was done using pointers, and nobody thereafter could understand and or maintain the code. Sometimes it was e...

Tx guys. Hmmm. went through the links - maybe not useless but not the kind of info I'm after. I only re-installed the system with smp to see exactly what the differences are. But like I said - I'm not sure at all what to expect eg. the memory usage between both installs were so small, made me wonder...

Multi Processors

Bit of a confusing issue this. Was asked about it a few days ago, and trying to find some proper material I'm still sort of in the dark. How does Linux handle multiple processors? Now I'm not sure about the questions I want to ask - but lets try. Does the OS fork / create extra jobs to handle the ex...

Yep. And amazingly nobody cares or have little heart attacks when the source code is "leaked"! har har! Actually how to "leak" something when it is open for public scrutiny in any case..?... But then again seeing as Linux is tops and "fixes", "patches" and "updates" are available on nearly a daily b...

Q) When that emulation of an operating system called windows stops working - what do you do? 1) Reboot - and hope it solves the problem 2) Reinstall - and hope it solves the problem 3) Ask your friendly neighbors' wife for help 4) Install Linux - knowing it will help 5) All of the above - given some...

Hi. Tx Void. Busy installing those that I could think of using synaptic after doing a search for "kde". It'll take some time and as soon as it is in I'll compare against the list you supplied. Installed the 2.4.20-24 kernel on all my machines during the week without a problem. Ran synaptic on my 7.3...

All of my "live" sites are on RH7.3. Except for my own personal machine that's on 9, the development boxes are all on 7.3 as well. Haven't seen my way clear yet to recompile, retest, new QA on the new libs and kernels. For now - and some long time in the future - we'll be stuck with 7.3. Will upgrad...
