Upgrade to 5.4-RELEASE

[by sven @ Sun May 15 14:54 CEST 2005]

Last week I've been busy with upgrading FreeBSD from 4.11-STABLE (legacy) to 5.4-RELEASE (new technology). The upgrade process went pretty smooth, except that I had to compile a custom kernel because IPDIVERT is not in the GENERIC kernel by default. I also added some extra memory which makes the total amount of memory 386MB.

fresh-ports

[by sven @ Wed Sep 8 10:41 CEST 2004]

I forgot to mention my fresh-ports script in the /usr/ports section that is running for some time now. fresh-ports is a PHP script that shows the new and upgraded ports that are installed on freegw over a particular period of time. fresh-ports is inspired by freshports.org. Freegw users can also run fresh-ports at the commandline:

Major hardware upgrade

[by sven @ Tue Sep 7 18:31 CEST 2004]

As you can see it has been a while since I typed something on this weblog. May'be you have already noticed, but more likely you have not, that there was something going on with freegw this weekend. Freegw had namely had a major hardware upgrade. Because I make heavy use of some pretty complex Perl and PHP scripts (e.g. cvsweb, phpmyadmin) that take a lot of CPU time from my old Pentium 100, I couldn't really stand the long loading time anymore.

So at the local second-hand computer store I bought a nice little HP Vectra VL400 desktop that houses a Pentium III 733 MHz processor and 200 MB memory for not to much money. In addition, the new system has the disposal of a 10 GB disk drive and a 10/100 Mbit network interface card. For a moment I was afraid that the new Vectra uses the very buggy Intel 820 chipset that suffers from the Memory Translation Hub reboot issue, but luckily it uses a 815 chipset that doesn't has this problem. Read a little more about the new hardware configuration in the /dev section. Photographs of the new system mounted in the meter cupboard will be availabe soon.

Internet speed increased again

[by sven @ Wed Nov 26 14:57 CET 2003]

This month my ISP and KPN have again increased the internet speeds for their various ADSL subscriptions. This time not only the downstream has been increased but also the upstream has been more then doubled for the Basic subscription! The theoretical speeds for this subscription are 1024 Kbit/s downstream and 320 Kbit/s upstream. The average speeds are now about 110 Kbyte/s downstream and 32 Kbyte/s (!) upstream.

Personal Webcast

[by sven @ Mon Jul 28 20:41 CEST 2003]

With Personal Webcast people with an ADSL connection from XS4ALL can broadcast audio/video over the internet via a streaming server. The audio/video is locally encoded by WME (Windows Media Encoder) and is send to XS4ALL where a streaming server divides the stream into a maximum of five streams for five simultaneous listeners, but it uses bandwidth for only one listener, also the available upload capacity is not divided under the five listeners. Listeners listen to the streaming server instead of listening directly to the encoded stream from WME. If I have WME broadcasting you could use this Windows Media Player ActiveX control to listen to some music I usually listen to.
