chadmaynardthumbs: its not easy to tell someone what distro to go with before you are around
thumbswell not to sound condescending, but rpms are nothing but trouble, most of the time
a debian box, gentoo, or slackware is much easier to upgrade.
chadmaynardi know i hate them
ToeBeeheh. gentoo is easy to update... unless it is a really important package like, say, glibc :)
thumbsToeBee: I was comparing it to rpm-based distros, after all
I don't want to start a distro fight, I merely want to point out easier option for him
ToeBeeheh. yeah. I DO use gentoo a lot actually
thumbsespecially as they age.
I'm a slackware person.
chadmaynardthumbs: me too
upgrading anything is hard if it hasn't been touched in 5 years
ToeBeeespecially considering all the rootkits that will be on there :)
chadmaynardno it has no access to the internet
i don't think its been compromised
ToeBeeyeah but the alien mind rays can still get to it!
chadmaynardit has tcp80 inbound from the LAN
ToeBee: I have anti-aliens.rpm installed
ToeBeeooh good work
loquitus_of_borgHey people... I have a database foo that has some tables in it. Is there a way to have another database bar on the same server to somehow have a "symbolic" link to some of the tables from foo?
So that someone who accesses bar can do selects from those tables in foo....
ToeBeewhy not just let the user do selects on the tables directly? you can restrict privileges to specific operations on specific tables
Xgcloquitus_of_borg: or use VIEWs to access the other database.
loquitus_of_borgToeBee: I realize that but if the user is logged in and connected to the database bar, I want then to only access bar and not mess with foo in any way or form... I want bar to be not visible to them for all intents
