[quote]I actually run FreeBSD on my local servers, just out of interest.
yay! i’m the main bsd head in the office but we are starting to port dreamservers to FreeBSD; if that’s successful hopefully we’ll be able to use FreeBSD machines for some other stuff as well.
We use OpenBSD for some internal machines as well.
[quote]I havent heard of any issues where Perl 5.6 conflicts with earlier 5.x
versions. Can you direct me to any information on this? I would be
interested to read about this.
My guess is that I’m just dumb… I recall hearing something to this effect a long time ago, but people since then have assured me that this isn’t the case. I guess there’s only one way to find out
[quote]Apache 2 is also just around the corner
That i didn’t realize. I will have to check out their site for more information on this. Since our Apache packages are built in a way that’s specific to our setup, we need to test them for a good amount of time before deploying
them on production machines.
[quote]is there any chance of installing a small module?
A perl module? that’s fairly likely; just let support know what you want. We’ll have to make a debian package of it (to keep all machines consistent) but it shouldn’t take two long. Alternately you could install it from source in your home dir and reference it with a ‘use lib’ statement (probably a better and easier way to do it).
[quote]How long has potato been around now ?
I think it’s been stable or frozen for about a year and a half or so… but don’t quote me on that. We still have one or two ‘slink’ machines around (and maybe one or two ham machines in the office). We are waiting for woody to be frozen before using it for any customer machines.
