PCBSD

Fri, 2006-09-22 23:56

PCBSD is still chugging right along on the laptop. I downloaded Apache and MySQL without any major mishaps, and am now running Drupal with only a small, persistant error at the top of the screen. It is thrown up there by the system and not Drupal, so I can't ignore it by sending errors to the log only. I will have to ignore it manually for now.

I am even able to log in as root; that sort of behaviour is not allowed by PCBSD by default. A quick edit to /usr/local/share/config/kdm/kdmrc put all to rights. I also made myself owner of the www folder inside Apache. I hope that is not a serious enough security threat to affect the balance of power in Europe.

I also installed Firefox and Open Office. I may try out WINE as well. Later, though. Things are already pretty slow running and I am not getting any younger here.

PSBSD even recognises my sound card. Nice little bonus and something no Linux distro could do.
