Question about how to make a living from open source

Hi All,
I am in need of assistance.

I am currently working as a freelancer coding stuff in a company.
However, although I am making good living, this does not scale much (and promotion is out of the question :) ).

Anyway, I am looking for ways to scale.

One of the ideas that were given to me is to compile couchbase or postgres and distribute the binaries with a support license. Find 4-5 customers which pay big bucks and make a living. Though, not much scale there either, unless i start taking employees...

Another idea is taking employees but people in the business are telling me i am better off staying a freelancer than taking employees. Not sure what is true here.

One other idea I had is hosting complex solutions for sites. Like postgresql couchbase etc... which is difficult for the average joe and making it scale like heroku etc...

Can someone give me a clue?

Thanks!

Tzahi Fadida.

How to sort a file by pure ASCII order?

I encountered a counterintuitive behavior of 'sort' in modern Linux
releases.

I checked the sorting behavior of sort, as installed in Debian Jessie
and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Turns out that the default behavior of sort (with locale=en_US.UTF-8) is
not to sort by ASCII order, but as if letters and digits are more
important to sort order than punctuation marks.

Attached please find a sort-test.txt file and the output of
sort < sort-test.txt (as the file actual.txt).

To show how would the output look like using pure ASCII sort, I sorted
sort-test.txt using python-sort.py (attached).
and got the result reproduced in correct.txt (attached).

The problem is then what options would get GNU sort to sort like
python-sort.py?

Can anyone shed a light on the matter?

Haifux: Call for speakers

Hi all,

After a short August vacation, Haifux is back. And it seems like it's 
some kind of tradition that the lecture list is empty at this time of 
the year.

So, any takers? The next slot -- a week from now -- is vacant. Grab it 
while it's hot!

Remember that you don't have to be an expert in the field of your 
lecture, even though many are. Haifux is also a good place to test-run 
talks intended for less responsive audiences.

See you,
    Eli

[YBA] new package for simple HTTP file upload

Dear colleagues,
I have posted a new package for simple parsing of multipart/form-data file 
uploads with no dependencies on third-party code at

http://tkos.co.il/downloads/misc/libmpfd-1.0.0.tar.xz

The package is derived from code by Grigory Dmitrievich Gorelov posted at
http://grigory.info/MPFDParser.About.html

Sourse code is C++.

The libmpfd-1.0.0.tar.xz adds autoconf capability and a Mongoose example 
and some refactoring of the code. Does not handle filenames with spaces or 
Hebrew, yet...

Shavua tov,

  - yba

Who is leaking memory in my Linux Jessie/KDE4 installation?

I have a 8GB PC which runs Linux Debian Jessie with KDE 4.4.
My problem is to find out who is occupying almost 4GB memory some time
after rebooting, even when nothing heavy is running.

The heaviest applications that I run are:
- A VirtualBox virtual machine occupying 3GB memory
- Google Chrome browser (version 37.0.2062.94, 64-bit)
- Evolution 3.12.2.

However, even when they are closed, a lot memory is still reported to be
in use.

My question is: besides top, what tools can be used to find who is using
all this memory?
The next question, of course, is how to get rid of those memory hogs
without destabilizing the system.

terminal emulator

What terminal emulators are out there that correctly do bidirectional
text, for displaying hebrew in a readable manner.  finding one that
displays hebrew, but left to right, isn't hard, but either i'm not
configuring it correctly or I'm not finding one that does it right.

thanks

efraim

Haifux celebrates 15 years this Monday

Hi all,

This Monday, Haifux' two Founding Fathers, Guy Keren and Orr Dunkelman, 
will reflect on the past: Guy will talk about how baby Linux has grown 
since Haifux was founded, and Orr will go on reading from the Book of 
Bad Crypto Decisions.

This is also a nice opportunity for an all-times reunion. :)

See you all,
    Eli

Running multiple versions of PHP under Apache

I have a Debian Wheezy machine two virtual hosts configured on a single machine. One requires PHP 5.3 and the other requires PHP 5.4+. I am trying to set up the machine to allow both to run.

So far I have added php-fpm (fastcgi) as per https://www.linode.com/docs/websites/apache/running-fastcgi-php-fpm-on-debian-7-with-apache.

This site (http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-use-multiple-php-versions-php-fpm-and-fastcgi-with-ispconfig-3-debian-wheezy) talks about using ISPConfig 3 for this. I have downloaded and compiled the 5.3 version of PHP but using ISPConfig seems to be a big headache.

From http://thejibe.com/blog/14/02/phpfarm it would seem like I should be able to have the configuration done within the virtualhost directives but that page seems to be out of date and I didn't follow all of the changes being suggested.

Is it possible to use fpm pools to reference different PHP versions?

What are my other options for having two virtual hosts using different PHP versions on the same machine?

Thanks

cgi bg

hi

i have a php cgi scripts that
1. generates an http response , this takes less than a second
2. do some stuff that may take some time, lets say a minute

when posting to that cgi, although the html is returned in less then a second, the request is not closed until the minute has passed.

i want the http transaction to be closed when done (i.e. less than a minute)
but the php script to continue it's action (e.g. the minute it takes)

can i do it in php ? i.e. flush, or send eof, which will finish the request but leave the php running until done ?


thanks
erez
