XEN Cluster HowTo

I have tried to run both Debian Etch and Ubuntu 8.04 Server on the cluster nodes, in Dom0. I started my tests with Debian, but I had some issues with slow samba performance in one VM that I couldn't fix so I decided to try Ubuntu Server, for the first time. Both installation went OK, the main difference was that I used mainly source code in Debian, but only packages in Ubuntu. I actually ran into more problems with Ubuntu due to some early bugs in the 8.04 release, will describe them below as I go along. And I have still to prove that running this setup in Ubuntu is stable.

Setting Up A Modular Subversion Repository For PHP-Driven Websites | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

Sharing code between projects is still not a trivial matter with subversion. Especially if you are familiar with SourceSafe, you will find that subversion makes it hard to share code. Subversion seems to be really great in creating a version mess and good in solving one, but the reason I need source code control is to prevent such a mess. This is where subversion can be greatly improved, but it is not impossible. This howto will demonstrate a directory setup that takes the subversion sharing mechanism into account, as well as other issues that repositories bring.
