Anyone have any notes on using Ruslan’s RTx-Shredder and the official
Debian “Sarge” RT packages, i.e. how to get it installed “correctly”, etc.
I have a rather large RT database that needs to be made smaller and have
been using the RT packages on a Debian system.
Tickets in the system back four or five years, and it’s starting to make
MySQL pretty sluggish – we probably don’t need all of this old data.
I’d be willing to work through it. I did see some Debian bugs and then
a retraction a while back about dh-make-perl not being able to build
RTx-Shredder correctly because the perl module looked for user input at
the time. Also since the Debian packages scatter RT around the
filesystem a bit (mostly in /usr/share/request-tracker3), I’m wondering
what the “correct” answer is to the question, “Where is your RT root
Thanks for any assistance.
