hello
mmcgrath
hello xanatos_
xanatos_
one question, I am a new user of Centos Linux, and I wold like add a mirrors or repositories to use yum, where I can search a mirrors?
Evolution
xanatos_: by default, centos pulls from over 100 mirrors for updates via yum, based on geo-ip, and mirror speed/update.
xanatos_: adding repositories for 3rd party packages is a separate deal. and is covered here -> http://wiki.centos.org/Repositories
xanatos_
wow
thanks
nettie
hey guys, anyone using xen with centos 4.3 here please?
NthDegree
xen :~|
hence why CentOS is atleast 8x faster than Fedora for updates (my experience)
z00dax
NthDegree: whats Xen got to do with faster updates ?
nettie
uhmm
no idea
         

NthDegree
sorry was commenting on the repo mirrors
nettie
I'm having issues booting it up
the kernel cant find the roofs which is on a lvm volume
z00dax
nettie: what kernel is that ?
nettie
xen kernel
xen 3.0.2
2.6.16-xen
whatever it is
latest stable
z00dax
nettie: this isnt #xen
nettie
uh?
NthDegree
CentOS doesn't include xen by default normally
z00dax
take your non CentOS / EL problems elsewhere ?
NthDegree: that isnt the xen kernel for centos anyway
nettie
it's xen
of course
considering the build is done for RH 4.x
z00dax
nettie: you might want to go read up about what that is and how it works
nettie
and considering that centos is binary compatible with 4.x I was looking for someone who actually installed it on top of 4.3
z00dax
i have, many times.
nettie
I know how it works.. I just have a problem.. that's all
you did?
z00dax
go ask the people who's kernel you are using about your problems
nettie
I did ask in #xen that was abviously the good thing to do
and nobody anweser .. so I tried here..
in the hope that someone had my same troubles and fixed them.
I perfectly understnad that it's not a CENTOS problem
z00dax
what is your problem anyway ?
nettie
xen patched kernel boots fine, it tries to mount the LVM volume and die
I unpacked the initrd
both dmmod and lvm static linked bin are there
z00dax
yes, talk to the people who's kernel you are using
nettie
seems it just can't read the the volume
for some obscure reason..
z00dax
excellent
         

nettie
will try
NthDegree
just out of curiosity why do you use LVM? perhaps a non-LVM system would be less problematic?
z00dax
errr
nettie
NthDegree yeah I'm pretty sure it works without it.. but I definitely need lvm fexibility.. and in a vps system it's a must
imho
NthDegree
as in resizing the partitions?
nettie
volumes handling, snapshots and so on..
hologram
ello
NthDegree
nettie try VMWare Server perhaps, it isn't free but it is free of charge (you don't have to pay for it)
and it works easily
nettie
NthDegree I need xen.. just have to figure out what's wrong..
thanx anyway for the suggestions guys
ttyl
NthDegree
what can Xen do that VMWare cannot??? :|
z00dax
NthDegree: quite a lot. go ask google and read up on the websites
this sort of a conversation will be much OT here
NthDegree
oh yeah sorry
PostVert
Hello. I want to play w/ kernel mods, but I'm used to using 'yum install kernel-source', but it does nothing (or maybe I'm looking in the wrong place?)
Hmmm, I didn't install dev stuff, so how the hell am I going to compile a kernel, guess I should have thought of that before...
Guess I'll just do an EVERYTHING install.
ping 192.168.0.112
Oops
Hehehe
Sorry
<lurk>

PostVert: yum install kernel-devel
PostVert
Um, if I had a GUI, I'd try that, thanks :)
Server = no need for gfx.
Zerberus
yum install kernel-devel
NthDegree
hahaha yeah i guess so
PostVert
Tnx
Zerberus
that is enough for building modules
gzl
hi, I'm trying to install irssi on CentOS, but it says that the public key for the package isn't installed. the website where I got the rpm doesn't seem to provide one, so does anybody know what I should do? this is on CentOS 4 on x86 64. thanks.
NthDegree
gzl that is off-topic methinks
Zerberus
gzl: dag's repo has a public key
gzl: it can be dangerous to install rpms from not trustful sources
gzl
is dag's repo not trustful?
Zerberus
it is
gzl
ok, that's what I thought. your point is well taken, though. so if I want to install something of his, the best way is to add his repository, not to just download the rpm and use yum localinstall?
Zerberus
gzl: depends - maybe just install hier .repo file, but do not enable it
NthDegree
uh one question
bobnn
you import his public key
Zerberus
so you can do though: yum --enablerepo=dag install irrsi
NthDegree
gzl did you use yum to install irssi?
gzl
NthDegree: I haven't yet installed it, but that's what I'm trying to do.
Zerberus: ah, ok
gzl_
Zerberus: sorry if you said something to me, was having internet issues
Zerberus
no, didn't add anything
gzl
ok. well, I'll do what you suggested -- install his rpmforge repo and disable it
thanks
Evolution
hughesjr: you around?
hughesjr
yes ... STILL building sparc stuff :)
I am making progress though :)
Evolution

hughesjr
it is ... but the SRPMS code is not quite right for sparc :)
funzone
has anyone install a intel pro wireless 3945 card?

hello
I have some questions about CentOS
I have (never) ventured outside of one distro in my whole entire life...
And that is Gentoo...
My question is: Can someone tell me some differences (obviously portage, lol)
hello???!?!??!
gentoo chats ftw... sorry, no one is here
ufk_away

how can i tell which file a package installed?
daMaestro
ufk_away, rpm -ql packagename
ufk_away, man rpm
ufk

i see no init script for gdm, do i need to manually add it to /etc/init.d ?
is there a meta package for installing a full gnome desktop?
daMaestro
ufk, yum grouplist
ufk
thanks

Salam & Good Morning
aivalli
hi folks
is DAG broken in any way ?
I am unable to 'yum update' :(
nettie
Hi agian guys, I have an old taolinux 1.0 box I would like to move to centos4 using yum upgrade. anyone know if this is feasable please?
Dyson
nettie: isn't TaoLinux 1.0 is based on RHEL3?
hughesjr
nettie: CentOS-3 is a match for that ... going to CentOS-4 directly is MUCH harder
nettie
yeah
it's rhel3
hughesjr
moving to CentOs-3 is easy following the instructions on the Tao website
nettie
hughesjr I'' move to centos 3
and then see if I can update to centos4
from centos3 then
thanx for the hint
hughesjr
nettie: best upgrade to CentOS-4 (from CentOS-3) is to boot a CD/DVD and do "linux upgradeany"
aivalli
hey folks is dag repository broken in any way ?
anyone else unable to doa yum update ?
hughesjr
aivalli: I am ... but I am not pointing to dag's main site ... where is it failing?
aivalli

nettie
hughesjr uhmm.. I see..
aivalli
nettie: any hints ?
