Pardus the Turkish GNU/Linux distribution

Pardus is a Turkish GNU/Linux distro.

Pardus aims to

  • provide full Turkish support by making the character structure compatible to Turkish (UTF-8 compatibility) and by making all the messages and documents visible to users into Turkish.
  • ensure that it is an operating system which can be installed and used more easily than the existing Linux distributions and other competitive operating systems.
  • to be designed in a modular configuration which can achieve the required flexibility and high performance with a task-based and human-focused approach rather than a tool-based and technology-based one.

Apache HTTPD 2.2 I/O & forensic logging !

I've been readin the Apache Httpd Logs documentation for version 1.3, 2.0 and 2.2 :

and noticed that in Apache Httpd 2.2 there are a couple of new modules / features that could be very useful for any development servers you run !

mod_logio adds in two additional LogFormat fields (%I and %O) that log the actual number of bytes received and sent on the network.

mod_log_forensic provides for forensic logging of client requests. Logging is done before and after processing a request, so the forensic log contains two log lines for each request. The forensic logger is very strict with no customizations. It can be an invaluable debugging and security tool.

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS & Ubuntu JeOS have landed

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support) Desktop and Server Editions are now available !

If you want to run Ubuntu VM guests you might be very interested in Ubuntu Server Edition JeOS or if you want a lightweight Ubuntu for old low spec hardware (ie PII with 256M of RAM) you could try Xubuntu !
