VIA Kernel Panic with Sangoma S518 ADSL Cards

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Hardware, Linux, Mini-ITX, Software

When using the drivers for the Sangoma S518 ADSL card on the VIA EPIA architecture you must install them using the following

./Setup install –arch=i386

otherwise on connecting to the isp you will get a kernel panic and the whole machine will freeze

Unable to connect to newer mysql database – Client Does Not Support Authentication Protocol Requested By Server, Consider Upgrading MySQL Client

Posted by Paul Farrow - Under: Mini-ITX, Software

Kept getting the message ‘Client Does Not Support Authentication Protocol Requested By Server, Consider Upgrading MySQL Client’ after upgrading the mysql server to a newer version than the client odbc driver and after much trawling found that you have to update the mysql user table to hold the password in the old format like so..

UPDATE mysql.user
SET password=OLD_PASSWORD(‘somepassword’)
WHERE user=’someuser’
AND host=’somehost’;

dont forget to update each host and then reload your privaleges, should then work.

GD Lib with Bugzilla

Trying to get libpng and libjpeg support ??  You will need to install the developer versions of the libraries, on Fedora the easiest way is to use up2date ie. up2date libjpeg-devel and up2date libpng-devel this will install it then the configure for the makefile of libgd will pick the libraries up and install support for them.

Also dont use the ./configure.pl do make and then make install dont use the make install straight away this then works for me on Fedora Core 3.

My mate Rick Marden sent me some pictures of the snow at his place, all the snow here has gone but clearly parts of the UK are still suffering.
