any caldera openlinux users, please...
i am about to try out a new low load deaktop, caldera openlinux
v2.2. i was wondering if anyone has has run mysql (client or
server) on the caldera offering(s).
thier will be two hardware platforms, a server based on i386dx33
(with onboard intel 33 mhz 80387) an esdi controller and hard
disk and 8 mb of 60 ns DIP style dram. a client machine will
be a pentium pro 180 mhz with aha2940uw, pair of scsi3 4g3
harddisks, this machine has 256 mb dram. both platforms will be
running text consoles, both currently run freebsd
v2.2.5-release, both will be dual boot (using the os/2 boot
manager), both will be talking to each over ethernet (smc based
cards at 10 mbit).
any gotchas, whatchouts, don't_do_thats or thats_plain_silly
will be apreciated. i used to play develop on linux while it
was at kernel v0.91.?? someting or other, i gather it has
changed a bit since then.
please, i'm not looking fro one linux is better than another,
or why linux is not as good as freebsd and or os/2. they all
have thier place. i'm looking at using caldera openlinux as a
stable and reliable desktop and wondering how it will cope with
mysql, and, what sort of experinces people have had using it in
'real world' (TM) situations.
