syncitems dying [Jan. 30th, 2003|03:33 pm]

The syncitems protocol mode and (more importantly) the table used to store it are about to die.

Bugzilla item about it:
http://zilla.livejournal.org/show_bug.cgi?id=583

Previous post about it:
http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=lj_dev&itemid=461384

Good news: server does less work. less disk space used. new protocol mode to replace it will let you find out when comments were altered, and probably then let you fetch comments also.

Bad news: some clients will lose functionality (LochJournal, for one)

I'll post to lj_dev when the new protocol is available, but there will be some downtime while neither is available, because it's necessary to start moving users between clusters (we're adding 2 more) and we don't want to move syncitems data (which is a lot) when it's going to die soon anyway. So... we're accelerating its death.

RedHat Install Challenge [Jan. 30th, 2003|10:02 pm]

I am installing on Redhat 7.2 - in cgi-bin/cracklib there is the following cryptic README:

[root@email cracklib]# more README.txt
need to install on clients:

apt-get install libcrypt-cracklib-perl

to make the dictionary indexes, need to do:

# apt-get install cracklib-runtime wenglish

$ /usr/sbin/crack_mkdict /usr/share/dict/words | /usr/sbin/crack_packer $LJHOME/cgi-bin/cracklib/dict

The Redhat version of Debian's apt-get sits on rpm - but cannot find either of these libs and this is confirmed by

[root@email cracklib]# apt-get install libcrypt-cracklib-perl

A search at http://apt.freshrpms.net confirms the package does not exist in this form. Has no-one installed on RedHat Linux?
