Older blog entries for jnewbigin (starting at number 1)

After spending a few hours searching around on some old backups I found the source to my php module which does smb authentication.

I cleaned it up and built it into a RH72 compatible rpm. Now all the pesky students can log in and check their entries in the apache error log and fix their cgi assignments.

While I was at it, I set up a local php mirror so I can have instant access to the pretty PHP manual. I guess I'll let the students look at it too :)

I also got a tip off about the symlink problem in smbfs. I am off to check that out now

I finally got Windows 2000 running under VMWare with the kernel debugger connected. It turns out that the MS debugging tools installer can not do an upgrade and I had to uninstall the old version first.

Now that it is working I can make some progress on the ext2 filesystem. If I can get reparse points working then you will be able to mount your linux filesystems in a tree and not have to worry about drive letters :)
