If your SSH connection is slow, it may depends on your SSH server that is executing reverse DNS lookups to try to identify your details.
Try setting the parameter below to your /etc/ssh/sshd_config and restart your ssh server daemon:
It worked perfectly for me, it may work perfectly with you too.
If you encounter an error like this one on your SVN client:
you can try to fix your problem linking your libneon-gnutls.so.27 library used by your svn client to /usr/lib/libneon.so.27.
Try with this one:
mv /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27 /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27.old
ln -s /usr/lib/libneon.so.27 /usr/lib/libneon-gnutls.so.27
Tested on Debian 6.0 and Ubuntu 11.10
You may know that the PHP version coming with debian squeeze is 5.3. Since the 5.3 version of PHP breaks some compatibility with 5.2 you may find that an old PHP application is no longer working with the new version of PHP on squeeze.
The steps required to install PHP 5.2 on debian squeeze are very simple, you just need to setup APT to install the PHP packages coming with debian lenny.
The first thing to do is to add the lenny repository to the end of /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian lenny main contrib non-free
Then you need to make sure that your favourite PHP packages will be downloaded from lenny instead of squeeze. You can do this creating the file /etc/apt/preferences.d/lenny, with this stuff inside:
Explanation: choose Lenny as installation source if the package is not already installed and not available from Squeeze
Pin: release n=lenny*
Explanation: choose Lenny as installation source for those packages
Package: libapache2-mod-php5 php5-common php5-curl php5-gd php5-mcrypt php5-mysql php5-cli php5-mhash php5-xsl php5-imap php5-xmlrpc php5-sqlite
Pin: release n=lenny*
After that, remove any previously installed PHP 5.3 package, for example with the command
apt-get remove –purge php5\*
and then install the PHP 5.2 packages from lenny:
apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 php5-common php5-curl php5-gd php5-mcrypt php5-mysql php5-cli php5-mhash php5-xsl php5-imap php5-xmlrpc php5-sqlite
That procedure saved my life twice, I hope it will save yours too!
