#php #phpunit unit testing

there are a number of php pear phpunit unit test librarys floating around 1.3.2, 2.3.6, 3.7.21 & 3.8.x but currently i would NOT install OLD versions of phpunit from ubuntu repo or default pear repo BUT install phpunit 3.7.21 from instead


# pear channel-discover
# pear channel-discover
# pear remote-list -c phpunit
# pear install --alldeps phpunit/PHPUnit
# pear list -c phpunit

#sysadmin #webmin #webminstats on #buntu

sysadmins can now install the webmin webminstats 2.7 module on ed/k/l/x/ubuntu

install commands

  • # aptitude install rrdtool php5-rrd librrdtool-oo-perl libsnmp-perl libauthen-pam-perl
  • # wget
  • # dpkg –install webmin_1.630_all.deb –alldeps

WARNING #linux #kernel 3.2.0-43 breaks #ubuntu @virtualbox 4.2.12 guest vms

maybe related to “vmware/virtualbox kernel modules not loaded by default”

if you are running @virtualbox 4.2.12 and have an ed/k/x/ubuntu 12.04.02 LTS guest with virtualbox guest additions installed do not allow the the kernel to be updated to 3.2.0-43

  • it may hang during boot
  • it may give you a black screen
  • it may give you a low res video warning

other possible workarounds

  • downgrade virtual box to 4.2.10
  • do not install virtual box guest additions
  • use guest additions from ubuntu repo instead of virtual box iso
