If you're using the correct version of solaris, you can eliminate ld_library_path this way:

to make /usr/local/lib a standard library path:

For Apache:

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
- add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
during execution
- use the `-RLIBDIR' linker flag

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and manual pages.

According to a new report, President Bush's official campaign is selling clothing made in Burma - a country whose goods Bush banned for sale in the U.S. because of their awful human rights, narcotics and sex trafficking record. According to Newsday, "the merchandise sold on includes a $49.95 fleece pullover, embroidered with the Bush-Cheney '04 logo and bearing a label stating it was made in Burma, now Myanmar."1

More information for working with DHCP on the Flowpoint:

To set an IP to a particular machine, convert the MAC address to decimel and add a "1" in the front.

So, 00:00:86:53:d6:cf becomes:

1 0 0 134 83 214 207

Then -- do this:

dhcp set valueoption ip.ip.ip.ip 61 1 0 0 134 83 214 207
save all

Also -- the first enabled IP will go. to disable an IP that's not desired but is being chosen by the machine, type: dhcp disable ip.ip.ip.ip

In response to: Energy Policy versus Environmental Policy

David [Visitor]
Oops -- did I say 5 years that the Bush administration proposed pushing back mercury regulation -- I meant 11. The bush admin has proposed delaying mercury regulation from 2007 to 2018.

Please don't even TRY to suggest that the Bush administration pushes environmental policies, because it's simply not the case. That'd be almost as silly as suggesting that Sen. Joseph McCarthy was a reasonable person. Oh wait...

In response to: Energy Policy versus Environmental Policy

David [Visitor]
The Bush Administration did not propose the mercury standards. It proposed gutting them. They were due to kick in at 2007. The Bush admin has pushed that back 5 years. The end result is several more million metric tons of mercury. How do I know? Besides the ny times, which reported it correctly, I spoke with my Aunt and Brother, both environmental engineers.

As for mortality rates -- we'll leave it to the actuaries to determine the levels of increased morbidity and mortality. But it's just a matter of degree. Mercury and radiation are both poisons. Make sure you don't feed your new baby any tuna -- too much mercury.

And as for the NY Times, I dunno, Ed. Perhaps you should stick with something else not so complicated. :-)

Ed [Visitor]
If the "energy interests" had truly won, there would be new Nuke plants being constructed...much higher margin.

Reducing the limits on mercury emissions (if that's really what happened) is not a victory for the "energy interests."

BTW...there is NO comparison between mercury and exposing mass numbers of people to radiation.

Incidentally, the Mercury emission limits were propsed BY the Bush administration...for the first time ever. The proposed limit was lowered because there is no known technology available to reduce it to the level Bush wanted.

Again David, you've been had because you trust the Times for your "facts."

I am looking for the source of a poem similar to this that I learned way back in the 1960s from an article in Life magazine. As I recall, there were other versions too. The one I remember was:
Higgledy-piggledy Ludwig van Beethoven
Scornful of cheer and of hearing forlorn
Spitefully hissing sat writing unplayable
Pianiss-iss-imo notes for the horn.
Any help you might have would be appreciated

I agree...if the facts are true what happened is horrible.

Most of the sources I've found have contradictory information.

By assuming the US govt is guilty without knowing the facts, you are guilty of which you accuse.

All you have are assumptions you make and hearsay.

Let's assume then, that 1) the Canadians DID give him that information 2) he DID draft-doge, 3) Syria DIDN'T torture him.

Now. What the HELL is the US doing sending someone who 1) isn't wanted in US 2) has valid canadian passport to syria where it's known that they DO torture people? What was the US expecting to happen? And lastly, since when does the US routinely send anyone to axis-of-evil countries with no extradition treaties, especially for something as dubious as draft dodging. And if he WAS guilty of draft dodging, why wasn't he charged, and convicted based on that account? Is 10 months the penalty for draft dodging in Syria? Is Canada tracking draft dodgers for Syria? Based on reasonable knowledge of what goes on in Syria, it is simply inexcusable that the US did what it did. It used to be innocent before proven guilty (including persons of Arab descent.

IF true...this is horrible. I did a quick search this morning and it appears the "facts" are a bit muddy. Some interesting data points:

1. He was arrested based in part on info given to the US by the Canadian govt.

2. He was wanted in Syria for draft dodging.

3. Syria is denying the torture.

In response to: Apache error

John Harrison [Visitor]
I saw what you wrote here and tried adding this to the bottom of /etc/hosts instead:

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
# (added automatically by netbase upgrade)

::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

That fixed it too, and was a lot quicker and easier than recompiling apache... :o)

If you look at:
it says:
IPv6 Support
On systems where IPv6 is supported by the underlying Apache Portable Runtime library, Apache gets IPv6 listening sockets by default. Additionally, the Listen, NameVirtualHost, and VirtualHost directives support IPv6 numeric address strings (e.g., "Listen [fe80::1]:8080").

So I would say by the looks of it that Apache is trying to bind to localhost via IPv6 - and can't resolve it, once you tell it where to connect to it's happy :o)

Very cool blog BTW :o)

david [Visitor]
I found myself touched, realizing such an esteemed audience continues to read my blog. Feelings of honor aside, I do need to point out to my audience that he made a mistake: the definition of McJob doesn't mention anything about a person in a McJob, although one could reasonably infer that someone who remains in a McJob is satisfied with the level of the job. So this implies another kind of character from someone who leaves a McJob.
