Subject:linux suitability -- mysql
View as plain text  
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.
