    RE: Redirect mysql server using /etc/hosts
    Hi, I have to apologize. I figured out a few days ago how to redirect the mysql server and forgot to post it here. It works exactly as jabirali wrote: [quote][code]127.0.0.1 mysql.example.org[/code][/quote] But it seems that this does not work, when I establish a VPN connection to my university network. But I have to double check this first and it is not a really problem for me, because I nearly never connect to the university and use than the mysql server. Thanks a lot for your help and sorry again for forgetting to post my solution. Best regards, Michael

    RE: Version Control for website with ftp only access
    Thanks a lot for this idea. I did not know that one can mount ftp targets. I will give it a try and than report back. But the missing LOCK feature could be a big problem. We are at the moment two developer, so this could lead into troubles. The wrapper script checking for a lock-file could be a workaround here. I think I will also give this a try. The next problem I am coming to see, is that the other developer uses windows. But first I try to figure it out myself and than I try to convert him (or find a similar solution for systems without CurlFtpFS). Best regards, Michael

    Version Control for website with ftp only access
    Hi, I am working with some others on a web page and we are looking for a version control system to manage the code (html, css, php, javascript) of the page. Unfortunately we have only access via ftp to the server (no ssh). So we need something that allows the normal work flow, i.e.: user A and B fetch the code, and edit it. A pushes the code, B fetches again, merges, pushes and so on... I had a look on git (which I use for my other projects) but as far as I know it does not allow a push over ftp. I had also a look at git-ftp (http://wiki.github.com/ezyang/git-ftp/) but this seems not to provide merging. Does anybody knows a way to manage files with a version control system via ftp? It's OK if its not git. Or do we need a better web hoster with ssh access? Thanks a lot and best regards, Michael

    RE: Laptop freezes sometimes when Debian Lenny starts
    Hi, yesterday the problem reappeared. I used my laptop over several weeks without the docking station/port multiplier and had no problems. Yesterday I put it on the docking station and had to boot two times bevor X came up properly. Pressing CTRl+C or CTRL+Shift+Backspace did not had any effect. So any ideas out there? Thank you very much for your help. With best regards, Michael

    Laptop freezes sometimes when Debian Lenny starts
    Hi, the title of this post is nearly all information I can give you. Sometimes when I boot my laptop with Debian Lenny the screen turns black when the X server starts and then the laptop freezes. No keyboard interaction works any more (e.g. I cannot kill the server or switch to any tty). I have to restart the laptop using the on/off switch and try again. Normally the second time works fine. Maybe you can give me some solutions for this error or some hinds how to debug this. I have no idea how I can track the error because everything crashes before I can do anything. If you need any more informations I can obtain from a normal (not crashed) run just let me know. Thanks a lot and best regards, Michael
