Yes, I had to write a shell script to make the config file-generation faster and less troublesome, but after I got that part done, I really started to see a great system. Nagios sends emails to me when it has an issue, like being unable to access a given server for a test or if the web server is down. All of this went up in a relatively simple way. Not as easy as Pandora FMS but still pretty simple, if you consider command-line configuration files simple to edit. Read more
Created by Lyrasis, a 501c(3) library association based in Atlanta GA, this site was created specifically for libraries but it is useful for other organizations when trying to understand whether opensource software will work for them. http://foss4lib.org.

USING THE grep UTILITY
Since the acquisition of certain data is many times critical, the grep utility is a valuable tool for the Linux user. It allows you to search through one or more files to see whether any contain a specified string of characters. This utility does not change the file it searches but simply displays each line that contains the string.
Originally, the name grep was a play on an ed— an original UNIX editor, available on Fedora/RHEL— command: g/re/p. In this command g stands for global, re is a regular expression delimited by slashes, and p means print. Read more

The goal of this guide is to provide a simple path that will get a user up-and-running as quickly as possible. Peter Dietz did a great job with this, however there are issues about setting up DSpace on an Ubuntu 10.04LTS server that I didn’t think were covered well. This is not entirely surprising because there have been two Ubuntu releases since April of 2010, and it is at least because my company doesn’t set up servers on the bleeding edge of Ubuntu development. There may be a switch to Debian at some point. Debian Stable is even more stable than Ubuntu LTS, I must admit, but we are more comfortable with Ubuntu. Read more
Presuming you have PostgreSQL-9.0 installed, you are probably running the default configuration. The default configuration is designed to work with a variety of hardware, and is tuned for the weakest possible machine within its hardware profile. The official documentation doesn’t spell out the minimum requirement for the operating systems we use at LTS-Lyrasis, except to say:
- Special Cygwin instructions may allow you to run versions of Windows older than Windows 20001.
- On Linux, such as Ubuntu, there are some minimum software version numbers and minimum hard drive sizes
- The minimum required version is Python 2.2. This came out in December 21, 20012
- You will need about 100 MB for the source tree during compilation and about 20 MB for the installation directory. An empty database cluster takes about 35 MB; databases take about five times the amount of space that a flat text file with the same data would take. If you are going to run the regression tests you will temporarily need up to an extra 150 MB.3
Pgtune will help you set up PostgreSQL 9.0 to work well with your current hardware.
Upgrading PostgreSQL-8.4 to PostgreSQL-9.0 on Ubuntu 10.04

This is something I was working on, on our Ubuntu 10.4LTS servers. Since I had several to do, I thought it would be fun to add it to the Evergreen-ILS wiki and also to put it here with a little more detail. The project wikis are likely to be places where the readers are more used to working with the project. This is less a place for the experienced and more for those who are thinking about doing something with Evergreen-ILS. Since there is a lot from the wiki page, from before I started updating it, I am including that page link here.
I am installing Evergreen-ils and getting OpenSRF installed is the second step in the journey.
The Evergreen Project develops an open source ILS (integrated library system) used by approximately 800 libraries. The software, also called Evergreen, is used by libraries to provide their public catalog interface as well as to manage back-of-house operations such as circulation (checkouts and checkins), acquisition of library materials, and (particularly in the case of Evergreen) sharing resources among groups of libraries.
I am working on getting evergreen-ils running on a test server for later use.

More than 60 people attended the ALE.org/SourceFreedom.com Linux Freedom Fest at ITT Tech in Atlanta.
Four speakers provided us with information on how to:
- Understand the implications of open source and how (and why) to get involved
- Install and implement the Drupal web site script
- Maneuver around the command line in the Bash shell
- Create a basic web page in HTML
- Write a basic shell script
If you missed the event, sign up at this site or at ALE.org, to be notified when the next Linux Freedom Fest will be happening.
The Atlanta Linux Freedom Fest happens quarterly, so you do not have to wait long for the next one.
