MariaDB update

The MySQL Engine behind these sides has changed actually. We are now running


Please find the announcement here

One reason to choose Debian below these sides was the fact that i can have the newest MariaDB packages out of an debian repo. So maybe you want to add

What have i done (Feb/March 2012)

It was geeting a bit quite in this blog. So maybe time to tell what i have done.

  • I disabled my swap on my openSUSE desktop. What was quite fun. If you are running out of memory the Xorg is killed. Nice graphic, i really can tell.

  • I played around with froxlor ( ) on both, openSUSE and Debian. I really would like to see an repo which contains it.

  • I played around with OpenIndiana. Quite nice, i was always a friend of SUN and Solaris, so i played around if you want some more information i started another blog RunOnOpen which maybe give some more details on how to use OpenIndiana on servers

  • I found out that BtrFS slows down my system quite offen. When i take a look on 'top' there is mostly a snapshot running.

  • I did a lot reading about MariaDB and switched most of my private databases.

Thats it so far, i hope there will be better news and posts next month
