Potential Problem with PostgeSQL performance on SuSE Linux 9.0

Potential Problem with PostgeSQL performance on SuSE Linux 9.0

While debugging a wireless card, I came across this interesting bit:

What it indicates is that by default SuSE 9.0 plays with the timeslice values
for the Linux kernel in order to provide a "smoother" user experience. In
my experience, this can be very bad news for databases under heavy multi-user

I would suggest that anyone installing a SuSE 9.0 PostgreSQL server remove the
Desktop pararmeter in the bootloader configuration.

TIP 7: don't forget to increase your free space map settings

1. Files disappear in Windows 2000 FAT32 when created with Linux (SUSE 9.0)

2. Getting Fortran program compiled under SuSE 8.0 to run under SuSE 9.0

Fortran program compiled on SuSE 8.0 gives this error message when it's
run on the SuSE 9.0 platform:

forrtl: info: Fortran error message number is 174.
forrtl: warning: Could not open message catalog: ifcore_msg.cat.
forrtl: info: Check environment variable NLSPATH and protection of

On the SuSE 8.0 platform:
cd /usr/lib
ifcore_msg.cat is a link to

On the SuSE 9.0 platform:
cd /usr/lib
ll ifcore*
ls: No match.

Is it OK to define a link in /usr/lib on SuSE 9.0 that says
ifcore_msg.cat -> /opt/intel/fc/9.0/lib/ifcore_msg.cat

The two ifcore_msg.cat files have slightly different sizes and are in
directories that follow a slightly different naming convention.

How else can I get the 8.0 program to run under 9.0? (I'd prefer not to
recompile on 9.0).
