> missing link to http://openacs.org/doc/openacs-4-6-2/files/analog-dev.cfg.txt

> http://openacs.org/doc/openacs-4-6-2/individual-programs.html

Removed the link altogether - removed all links to files actually in

the tarball

Using symlink in openacs.xsl


In qmail section, link to download page for ucspi and qmail

Decided I didn't care


>Red Hat 9 issue:

>code change to compile daemontools and qmail



>put "#include <errno.h>" in /usr/local/src/postgresql-7.2.3/src/include/postgres.h

Added comment to instructions


> Add text about which version of PostgreSQL works to top of that




>First, in http://openacs.org/doc/openacs-4-6-2/postgres.html the make

Could not repro.

Changed to 755.


>Optimizing Postgres:

>should optimize kernel settings for Postgres


Added postgres tuning instructions


>For compiling nsopenssl, this was necessary on Debian:

>apt-get install libssl-dev

>make OPENSSL=/usr/lib/ssl

>nsopenssl needs 0.9.6 or newer. Debian stable currently runs openssl


Added note.


>If you are on Oracle, you have to su - oracle, then su to root to get

>your environment right. Otherwise, nsoracle won't compile.

Added note.


>The web user wasn't added in the Oracle install step, so I added it

>now: groupadd web

Already mentioned in the doc.


>For some reason, the include and sample-config.tcl files were owned by

>500.500 instead of root root. So:

>chown -R root.root include sample.config.tcl

owned by remadmin in reference platform. Seems harmless so didn't add anything to instructions.


>bin and lib were group owned by staff. I changed that to root as well:

>chown -R root.root bin lib modules

could not repro

Changed default suggestion to --analyze (once per day) to be conservative due to forum thread about full analyze affecting performance due to locking


> Red hat 9: Stock SSL doesn't work - kerberos problem and also not compiled with
