 really if you have a priceless artifact that you don't want found, the

 also the way diamonds are transported around Hatton Garden (i.e. in 
 people's pockets, not in securicor vans).

And if you have a rouge stone worth 1500 gold you shouldn't put it in a
chicken while a shady guy is watching, since said shady guy might tell some
feisty adventurers about it for a small fee. Especially if you live in Umar
Hills.

 Does this count as the end of [Net?]BSD's $years of having no exploits?  

OpenBSD still claims 4 years without a remote hole in the default install.

ISTR they had a couple of years without a local hole too, but that they
found some other hole a less than a year ago so it was reset quite recently
anyway. But I might just have hallucinated that.

I think you might like to have a look at the Content-Disposition MIME

Something like this:

print Content-type:application/x-zip-compressed\n .
  Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=$file\n\n;

 I got a Perl and a Linux one just by asking ( there are loads on some

When I got there they said I had to buy 3 O'Reilly books. So I bought three
pocket references: mod_perl, Emacs and CVS.

 The trouble I find with precompiled mod_perl's is that they usually
 haven't beencompiled with EVERYTHING = 1, so they have to be compiled
 from scratch anyway when using AxKit.

Yes, I want one with EVERYTHING=1...

Compiling mod_perl on Debian

2001-01-18 Thread Niklas Nordebo

Hello everybody, I just moved to London from Stockholm, Sweden, so I joined the list.

Anyway, I have a problem I hoped someone might be able to help me with, when trying to 
compile mod_perl statically into Apache on my Debian box I get
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ldb
from the sanity check when Makefile.PL runs Apache's Configure. This doesn't happen if 
I compile Apache standalone.

I have libdb2-dev and libc6-dev installed.

(more stuff:)
