Re: Opensim-users Digest, Vol 30, Issue 75

question about MySQL and also one of physics for a Linux server

Hello all,

I have recently set up a Linux Ubuntu server (latest dev) and have set it up as a LAMP server. 
I followed the opensim.org information for setting up the MySQL database and gone into my OpenSim.ini file and change all mentions database to reference MySQL, including in this my database name and my root and password. However I have no persistence for items worn by my avatar and he reverts to Ruth upon log in. Object in world still remain. My Question is, does Mysql need to be "turned on" or should it not be running in the back ground? Or does anyone have advice to any oversights I may have had?

I am very new to setting up a server this being my first. I set this up with the intent of running Opensim. 

Second, concerning physics. I have ODE active and notice that when my avatar is standing on ground they are gradually pushed (bumped is more like it...bump,bump,bump) towards the North East corner of the sim and I will eventually wind up in the corner. When running a standalone on a desktop version I have not had this experience. Any advice please?

Thank you all for your time

Hello

  I just want to send out a word of caution to the users or potential users
of the dodgy types of viewers that you have mentioned .  There is currently
an SQL database being assembled with the names of users who are using these
clients and apparently many of them have been banned .  Here is a link to
the name list , just to show that its out there .

]


  Please use caution with these viewers at the moment ,  unless you don't
mind your name being gathered in a database .  Also please note that using a
secondary avie  instead of your main avie  doesn't neccessarily protect your
main avatar or any other avie that is being used by your IP .  General  IP
bans are known to happen and you are lucky if your secondary avie is the
only one that has been taken .  At the present time , it is probably best
to steer away from these viewers unless you really know what you are doing
and know or speak to the developer of the viewer .

Kind Regards
Tara

Like so many "instant" solutions this one is pure snake oil!

It seems that many Emerald and Mac LL viewer users are being banned as well.

As near as I can find out this is actually a "turf war" between two content thieves!

Be very careful what you believe from all of this fuss.

Linden Labs has said that they will NOT ban any specific viewer, only people who misuse them!

Big surprise, selling stolen content can and will result in a ban!

A viewer certification program was announced at SLPro today. I expect
there will be more info in the Blog shortly.

I am happy with the save tools of opensim. It enables me to build cool
things with a real time pressure.
Cause it is easy to back up all created on the sims and in my inventory on
the serverside.

Somehow I do not feel the need to copy over tons of things from sl and back.

However I find the idea that someone who logs in with a pirate viewer and
also can copy all the things on my sims from the viewer side a bit
disturbing.

Makes me wonder can I block those viewers from my own opensims ?

More info on the viewer directory. Note also that Viewer 2/Snowglobe 2
was released today as beta.

Coming full circle from my original question...issue is obviously a 
common concern. Too bad SL Version 2 does not have a way to save out 
inventory like OpenSim's IAR.  Seems like it would have been a great 
opportunity add that capability for things you create in SL Viewer Ver 
2...

Just to follow up on IAR, it worked fine for me in my tests, granted 
the VirtualBox servers were identical but on different computers. I 
liked the fact that you have to be organized with the stuff your 
create and place them is specfic folders, etc good skill for 
students ;-)

Most of what I see my teachers and students using OpenSim would be in 
"walled garden" type of situations. So the ability to deploy a 
specific sim with prebuilt content, and then ability to IAR content 
they create and inventory in portfolio, etc. seems to fit my purpose.

Do have a couple questions about IAR though:

1. When I was running Save and Load IAR I'm working directly on the 
server and the command line on the server. It also saved the IAR files 
directly to the bin folder (Diva install) and requires that they be in 
the bin folder when I load them back into a different sim.  This is 
not a problem when the server and the client are on the same hardware 
(my desktop), but when OpenSim is deployed on it's own hardware, am i 
going to have to log in remotely to the server to run iar? Is it 
possible to ssh to OpenSim server and run the management console to 
save and load IAR files? How would you do that if the server is 
already running, you wouldn't want to start another terminal window 
and run opensim.exe again, would you?

2. When running the save iar command, is it possible to set the saved 
file path to another computer? If so what would that look like?
<save iar user name ///user/myuseraccount/Documents/OpenSim_Archives 
mySecretPassword theSavedArchive >??? Same thing for using the "load 
iar" command from a client computer?

Would it be possible for the "save iar" command to save to an ftp 
directory, like: <save iar user name ftp://
imstudent:mypassword@Archive_Student_Created_Content/Server/
OpenSim_Archives_Portfolio/ mySecretPassword theSavedArchive > ???

3. Is there a gui interface to run the OpenSim mangement console from 
a desktop to generate, save and load IAR files?

Ideally, I would like the ability to save and load AIR files from a 
client computer rather than the server. Or even if there was an little 
GUI app that students could use to save what the create to a digital 
portfoio, kind of like the ftp example in question number 2.

Thanks in advance for any help!  :-)
