Next to hell....

[ #407 ]

Claes rule #2: Never trust preinstalled linux boxen...

One of our webservers, a (Distribution not mentioned) powered (Manufacturer not mentioned) machine ran out of usr diskspace this morning causing things to go wild.

When i checked the disk space usage, i found out that there was 1 GB for root, 20 MB for boot, 500 MB for tmp, 2 GB for usr, 900 MB for var and 3.5 GB (!!!) for home... And as an added bonus, home had quota enabled. Is this a webserver or a fileserver???

Besides the strange partition of the disk, this machine was shipped with a broken gcc that couldn't compile htdig, a swedish locale that could handle swedish characters and other strange features that makes it evil...

Well, to the good news:

I've done some more work on the JS bindings and i'm now working on fixing memory leaks. I should also take some time maybe this evening and port it to Win32. Porting it shouldn't be too hard since SpiderMonkey already runs on Win32. /claes
