samba+fds != fun
le sigh
shae2liberty
Hi i have setup cent os but it keeps failing when i use yum
howdo i add repositorys
orc_orc
shae2liberty: they are already enabled in a normal install
prammy
in /etc/yum.repos.d/
orc_orc
use pastebin,. and scrape the error into it plase
shae2liberty
it always ends at "Setting up repositories
orc_orc
shae2liberty: then your upstream network connection is dodgy
or you are impatient
eger
can you resolve domain names?
orc_orc
eger: until we solve level 1, there is no sense going to layer 7
         

shae2liberty
i am unsure. but ive tried alot to get this to work but it dosnt seem to
kruegerj
rpm --import /usr/share/doc/centos-release-4/RPM-GPG*
orc_orc
quantity of effort is irrelavant
kruegerj: not the issue -- already there
pleas do not speculate
shae2liberty
sorry, my network is now fixed though, i can download with wget perfectly. any ideas
orc_orc
shae2liberty: run yum with debug level 5, and pastebin the answer
shae2liberty
ok there are mirrors in /etc/yum.repos.d/
orc_orc
see man yum for instructions on the syntax
shae2liberty: do not change things until it is working
shae2liberty
yum -d 5 ?
it seems to be sticking at running transactino check.
orc_orc
shae2liberty: patience
shae2liberty
there is no network activity or hd activity
i am waiting,
orc_orc
nor should there be
it is a memory bound process
shae2liberty
what does the transaction check do?
orc_orc
verify that all requirements and dependencies are satisfied to RPM's satisfaction
shae2liberty
ok
are you a developer?
orc_orc
shae2liberty: yes
shae2liberty
Well ubuntu was a bi**h when it came to running webmin and cent os runs webmin perfectly but i miss apt-get. its the one thing i wish it had
orc_orc
shae2liberty: webmin?
shae2liberty
its a program that lets you adminster and install rpms etc over network automaticly
it will let u adminster anything from samba to cd burning.
orc_orc
hunh -- what is: uname -a so that I may know the centos release you are using, plaese
shae2liberty
it will setup clusers and update out of date packages and is very easy to setup
         

orc_orc
shae2liberty: fascinating -- but it was written for Caldera, now owned by SCO, yes?
shae2liberty
unsure about that
but it supports alot of os's now, even windows
orc_orc
... the uname ?
shae2liberty
excuse me?
orc_orc
hunh -- what is: uname -a so that I may know the centos release you are using, plaese
shae2liberty
erm i need to open up another putty window
[root@firewall ~]# uname -a
Linux firewall.belkin 2.6.9-34.EL #1 Wed Mar 8 00:07:35 CST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
sorry didnt mean to paste all that
orc_orc
ok - it is centos-4 -- it should get the updated kernel for you
shae2liberty: np
scud_
orc_orc: get'em
orc_orc
scud_: ehh?
scud_: /me is a friendly ORC
scud_
he pasted!!! lol
friendly but are you good smelling?
orc_orc
one line -- how do you know he did nt manually type it?
scud_: 'good' is _so_ subjective
scud_
b/c I manually typed mine in and you put fire power of 10 on me
shae2liberty
lol
Evolution
(Action) disputes the claims of orcs and 'friendly'
:-P
orc_orc
scud_: ;) I thot more was coming on your sda --
scud_
lol nah
one liner
shae2liberty
hmm does it usually take this long orc?
orc_orc
scud_: find anything interesting int he root pr-n cache on that drive?
shae2liberty: with low ram it can take over 1/2 hr
scud_
nah, its 3 drives aroud 74GB each ibm serveraid with a redundant spare
4 drives
orc_orc
shae2liberty: go spoke a cig, drink a beer, and go jogging ;)
shae2liberty
:/, should have told me lol, i have 2gb in my pc i would have taken out a 512 stick
dont smoke, dont drink, and im wrecked after walking 6 miles with a friend
orc_orc
vice requires constant practice
shae2liberty
vice?
orc_orc
cig beer etc
Evolution: have you ever smelled me in a non-good state?
Evolution: and you must agree I have been most friendly toward shae2liberty this session
Evolution
hehehe
orc_orc
(Action) hoped for a different uname, though
Evolution
I don't *have* to agree to anything. There's no need to being right to argue a point :-P
shae2liberty
thats cos im not being an absolute twat :), its my own fault i had network problems. my router had over heated and didnt like all the ip changes
orc_orc
Evolution: makes sense to me
shae2liberty: one shot, oine kill is our motto here
s/oin/on/
shae2liberty
as in get it over with?
i have a small question for you
orc_orc
shae2liberty: yes
shae2liberty
how do u do one of those home network domain things, eg firewall.belkin etc
and be able to goto the device name and have it work
orc_orc
shae2liberty: nfi
shae2liberty
simpler if you dont mind :p
orc_orc
conf call -- someone take over please
shae2liberty
!!google nfi
ah crap no bot:(
evolution
sorry about being such an ass last session
prammy
anyone run Samba/LDAP with Fedora Directory Server as backend on Centos 4.3 ?
JamieMurphy
how would i mount my cd drive ?
orc_orc
http://www.centos.org/docs/4/html/rhel-sbs-en-4/ section 13.2
please read the doco
JamieMurphy
sorry.
UGH i have to install gcc
orc_orc
the doco covers this, except we use yum rather than up2date in Centos
JamieMurphy
hmm i cant find a section about installing a cc
sky123
hello. I have question about the grub bootloader for centos. I imaged my system using mondorescue and then wehn I reimaged the new system..it complaiend bout the PBR or MBR depending on how you want to refer to it. Anyhow, to fix the problem I had to go into grub off of rescue and edit. The question is...is that this is unacceptable for well over 100 systems that need to be imaged..I need to know if there is way with a live system up and running to move th
e bootloader from the mbr to another location or how to fix it... can someone help out??
and then take the reimage..
fets
>.
sky123
JamieMurphy: just looking to get gcc loaded or??
JamieMurphy
im trying to complile a program and it keeps saying cannot find compatilbe cc
sky123
your probably missing gcc
JamieMurphy
tried installing gcc
sky123
you can fix that by - yum install gcc
you have make installed as well?
JamieMurphy
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: addons
sky123
and kernel-headers and/or source ?
JamieMurphy
unsure, im new to linux
ive been able to compile things on my kubuntu pc but never had to start from scratch installing gcc
sky123
JamieMurphy...if worse comes to worse download it from something like mirrors.usc.edu under centos
its likely on cd1 or cd2
of the centos under the rpms section.
as well
JamieMurphy
i got a dvd with linux format magazeen
plus i cant figure out howto mount it :P
[root@firewall ~]# mount /media/cdrom/
mount: can't find /media/cdrom/ in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
thats what i get when i try to mount
sky123
go to /media and see if there is dvd instead
dan__t
does /media/cdrom exist as a mount point from /etc/fstab?
heh
sky123
or cd-writer
dan__t
this monitor SUCKS.
wonder if anyone's gotten soulseek to work in Linux yet...
prammy
try mount /mnt/cdrom ?
JamieMurphy
aha i got it mounted
it was called cdrecorder
sky123
yep
now look for the rpm directory and see if you can find the gcc stuff
anyone have experience with grub bootloader and how to configure it based on issue with grub and mb?
mbr...
??
JamieMurphy
ok i see them but my yum install gcc -d 5 seems to be working this time
sky123
okay
JamieMurphy
oh that remindes me
i need to remove grub from my laptops hd
sky123
lol
JamieMurphy
as its going for repair cos the dvd drive broke
and linux voids the warrenty
so howcan i remove it without a working linux install or a live cd?
