surprise gift

Today the /usr partion on my server reached 100% again. While trying to find some stuff to delete i suddently noticed that all partions counted up to only 10G although the harddisk had 30G, so there were 20G of unused space on the harddisk *yay*.

Linux multicast routing..

…sucks. i currently have to implement a multicast router that also runs a multicast application. Unfortunatetly it has to run on Linux.
It appears as if Linux 2.6 despite running mrouted or pimd on the system routes its own multicast packets according to the normal kernel routing table to the default route.
So it looks like we have to find an application layer solution *argh*.
