Dave? Unfortunately not sane, we are looking at adding apple-gmux support, so the load ordering is indeterminate, so doing this will mean we just have to undo it later. Dave.

Very high translation costs for g729
..., I'm getting the following translation cost for g729: asterisk*CLI> show translation Server 1: g729 - 26 25 25 25 25 24 26 - 53 36 Server 2: g729 - 66 65 65 65 65 64 69 - 90 75 On my other three boxes, I get much saner vaules (costs anywhere from 3 to 6). Any ideas why two boxes have such high costs? All the servers run the same OS, updated to the same versions of everything, including kernel. Four of the five boxes run x86_64 kernels, with the two that are playing up both running x86_64 kernels. I'...

making 0.0.16 into 1.0.0
...interface may still need changes? TTM sucks? Userspace command-submission for ever? I don't like versioning anything ever? So my current answers to my list of cons is: Adding new faster interfaces for 3D drivers shouldn't be a major problem, if its just a matter of making the current APIs saner. If you are going to write a UCS/non-TTM driver you are going to have to do major changes all over the stack, in theory a kernel CONFIG option to enable version 2 of the interface and drop version 1 would be an option at that time. Or even a boot option to select between which one you want. I...

firewall questions
...'t have anything particularly valuable that they were looking for (I don't think!), but there are lists of subnets & ports out there that the kiddies use so once one found it, the flood gates opened. SSH is now protected behind a VPN. It's a valid thing to do and makes things much saner, but don't assume it is a forever solution and don't use it as an excuse to reduce other protections you may have. P.

Misc notes concerning view_paths
...hat doesn''t mean it''ll work. So borkedness ensues. For example, when set to an array, you end up with action_controller.view_paths being an array inside an array. (See line 277 of initializer.rb) I can set config.action_controller.view_paths separately and then results are saner, but the way config.view_path works now is a bit confusing. My suggestion is that we change config.view_path to behave more like config.controller_paths. First, it should be renamed to config.view_paths. It should have a default value of [''app/views''], so that one can...

unable to compile llvm with gcc 4.7.4
Hi, This is not the purpose of my distro. The purpose of my distro is to account for complexity lock-in and to remove this as much as possible. This complexity is usually performed in 2 ways: - ultra costly languages/runtime to implement (c++/java...), and I don't think "ultra" is a word big enough. - multiplication of script languages

Does Puppet ensure that a service is up and running?
Just curious as to the functionality of puppet. Does Puppet ensure that a service is up and running as long as puppet is running? Ie, I want to make sure ssh is always running, if for some reason ssh get''s shut down, does puppet start it back up when it does it''s config sync run?

xend / xenstored performance & scalability issues
...which is utterly ridiculous & completely non scalable for enterprise deployment :-( There''s two problems I see here: 1. Why the need for xenstored to be doing any of this I/O in the first place? If the DB needs to be kept on disk at all, it really needs to have a much saner update/transactional model to only update bits which actually change, rather than re-creating the entire DB on every transaction. But it strikes me that the DB could potentially be kept entirely in memory removing the disk I/O completely. Sure yyou wouldn''t be able t...
