Is this for real?

Read what Bjarne Stroustrup said about creating C++ here. Then tell me what you think.
I must admit I always found C++ a bit weird. :)

More space on Linux HOME partition

I've been trying to post this for a while, but never came to it.
Here it goes.

On every Linux partition there is a certain percent (usually 5%).
For certain partition you can check the amount of reserved space like this:
sudo dumpe2fs /dev/sda3 | grep "Reserved block count"

On my computer I had about 6Gb of reserved space.
You can gain those 6Gb of space back simply by using:
sudo tune2fs -m 0 /dev/sda3

I DON'T recomend using this on you root, boot, ... partitions. More on this can be read at How to Gain Couple Of Gb Of Free Space On Linux

Two days ago I bought an HTC Desire phone with Android 2.2. I'm still learning, installing applications, ... This is my first smart phone and it's great. :))

This is also my first post from the phone.

Compile DB2 plugin for Qt on Linux

- get Qt from Nokia's page
- install it
- run configure like this:
./configure -plugin-sql-db2 -v -I /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/include -L /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/lib64/
make install (if you want to install it)

- this should compile DB2 plugin for Qt. Now you can use this installation or copy generated Qt db2 plugin ( to /usr/lib/qt4/plugins/sqldrivers

Access DB2 via ODBC on Linux

This is how to install ODBC on Linux (Kubuntu 10.04) and access it.
- install DB2 (I always install everything)
- install unixODBC
- edit $HOME/.odbc.ini :
Description = Connection to DB_NAME

- run db2ca and add DB_NAME (don't forget to add ODBC)
- now you can use it on Qt for example like this:
QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QODBC");
QSqlError error = db.lastError();
qDebug() << "db error = " << error;

QSqlQuery query = db.exec("SELECT 1 FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1");
while ( == true) {
qDebug() << query.value(0).toString();

DB2 9.7.1, db2start and SQL1042C

As you may know I'm running Kubuntu 9.10.
The other day I installed DB2 Express-C 9.7.1 on it. When I tried db2start I got:
SQL1042C An unexpected system error occurred. SQLSTATE=58004

If you get the same try running db2ftok and then db2start again. It works for me.
