===vi (Editor) question===
 
For all the windows-users out there: If you have to change some lines (like changing the replication mode), you can use the built-in editor vi.
 
 
Without any knowledge of vi, you can't really use it, but this are the most important things:
 
 
To enter Vi type:
 
 
vi FILENAME
 
 
Vi has two modes: Normal (command) mode and edit mode.
 
 
Switch to normal mode:    <ESC>
 
Switch to edit mode:      i or a
 
 
Getting out of Vi (change to normal mode <ESC>):
 
 
Exit Vi:                      :q
 
Exit Vi (ignore changes):      :q!
 
Save:                          :w
 
Save and Exit:                :wq
 
 
===Apply the 3 *.sql-commandfiles===
 
I had to do it this way (every other syntax I used, wasn't successfull):
 
 
cd svn
 
 
cd mb_server
 
(you can start with m and b and press TAB)
 
 
cd admin
 
 
then execute the 3 lines with this syntax:
 
 
./psql READWRITE < ./sql/DropFKConstraints.sql
 
 
./psql RAWDATA < ./sql/vertical/rawdata/DropFKConstraints.sql
 
 
./psql READWRITE < ./sql/DropTriggers.sql

Comments

There are a few things missing from the VM image that would make it a whole lot easier to use. For example, emacs and java (needed to run the /admin/jsdeploy/run.sh script). Also, trying to get VMWare Tools installed was a bit of a pain because there were some dependencies missing, like linux-headers-2.6.18-4-686 and gcc 4.1.2 (the version used to build the kernel). Finally, it would be nice if the /etc/apt/sources.list file were set to include the standard debian locations so that apt-get were more useful. Something like:

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org stable/updates main contrib non-free
     
# Uncomment if you want the apt-get source function to work
#deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
#deb-src http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable/non-US main contrib non-free

lynx question

Could someone please explain howto mark files in lynx? That's not that easy for most of us (windows-)users.

keyboard question

For those of us with a non-US-keyboard, you should explain how to enter the ~ sign (in front of your import-file)

And for those who wants to use the usual layout, login with root and Enter the following commands

dpkg-reconfigure locales 

Scroll down with cursor key and mark the needed locales with space bar ('de_DE ISO-8859-1' for German), press TAB to go to OK and press ENTER


dpkg-reconfigure console-data
Select keymap from full list

press TAB to go to OK and press ENTER

Scroll down with cursor key to the needed keyboard layout for example

pc / quertz / German / Standard / latin1

press TAB to go to OK and press ENTER


dpkg-reconfigure console-common 

The previously choosen keymap from 'dpkg-reconfigure console-data' will be selected automatically, you can't change it here.

dpkg-reconfigure console-tools

Logout and login again, you should see now your usual keys.
