clive-
trek, hi, I am also wondering if anyone out there can offer any suggestions to my trouble ...:
range
clive-: Why is that troubling you?
clive-
range, hi, I get the message "init: version 2.85 reloading" appearing at random intervals ... looks wierd to me
TrekCycling
hmmm
range
Yeah, I read that. Why is that troubling you? Probably one of the processes which were spawned by init has died.
TrekCycling
anyone have an answer to my question?
range
No samba on CentOS here.
clive-
range, it seems that there is a cron.daily process that restarts init ...something to do with prelink
range, is this something to worry about ?, I have not seen this before
range
clive-: Your system still runs, doesn't it? And if it is restarted by the prelink script, what is there to worry about?
         

clive-
range, I am a newbie:), and this is a new install, so I am concerned this may be something that could cause me trouble
range
Well, if your system still runs ...
clive-
lol..ok, so I guess its nothing serious to worry about
Thanks for your help.

sky123
Evolution: okay...having a little issue with the web installation method...after editing the uri in ks to -
http://192.168.1.91/install where the CentOS/images/stage2 sits...
the boot disk says it cannot find it...but i can easily browse to it..
http://localhost/install/CentOS/base/
any ideas??
anyone else knwo why i could be having this issue with kickstart??
z00dax
sky123: who runs the webserver ?
sky123
i do :)
its all internal
z00dax
(Action) waits for realisation to strike
sky123
im thinking perhaps its my apache config??
z00dax
closer...
:)
how about the apache logs ?
they might tell you what anaconda is actually looking for
sky123
ahhh...good point...
right!
lol
im not going to have you fix it for me......yet....lol :)
dtm
sky123: 'tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log' and/or access_log
i once tried enabling an http based yum repository and never got it working.
well only to localhost. not for remote OS installation.
sky123
File does not exist: /opt/install/Cent)S
Prohibited
Hey guys, do any of you know where I can locate the default install of apaches "apxs" file
dtm
sky123: does it really have a closed parenthesis
sky123
no..
dtm
Prohibited: rpm -ql httpd | grep apxs
sky123
im think i hosed it up int apache config??? or
         

Prohibited
it didn't do anything
sky123
hmm..let me take a look
z00dax
might be devel
dtm
sky123: /opt/install is random sounding but i haven't set this up. who's requesting it? the remote anaconda
?
sky123
yes
z00dax
dtm: read backlog
dtm
z00dax: i did. this error just appeared.
z00dax
well, its going to be where apache thinks /install/ is
sky123
I just set it up as an alias in the default apache config
z00dax
nothing to do with anaconda
sky123
right
well here is the weird part...i couldnt find that..and Im thinking I fixed that issue..because from a browser I have no problem pasting the unable to rtrieve url with no issues
z00dax
the logs dont lie....
sky123
yeah but even if i try again...it doesnt append to the error.log the time stamp is old..
Sat Jul 8 15:36:58 PDT 2006 current time on machine...
z00dax
well then the access log might have something
sky123
[Sat Jul 08 14:48:45 2006] [error] [client 192.168.1.198] File does not exist: /opt/install/Cent)S ---error time
z00dax
anyway, have fun. I am of
sky123
thnks foir helping me point in the right direction..
:)
dtm
sky123: so is it anaconda that's requesting "Cent)S"?
sky123: i'm pretty sure you're having exactly the same problem i had. i've been an apache/linux admin for countless years and i finally gave up!
i couldn't believe it. pwnd.
i'm pretty sure i even ran a packet sniffer and everything
sky123
yeah...im looking at it...and it is psychotic..
what i see is the following..
dtm
where'd this "Cent)S" thing come from? that's not the part that you specify into anaconda's form, is it?
sky123
it ks tries to transfer what appears...to be an fd??
what the F is that?
dtm
what is 'ks' and what is 'fd'
?
sky123
kickstart...the fd ?? im trying to figure out..
dtm
floppy disk?
where'd you get "fd" from
i've never done kickstart.
sky123
im using a boot.img cd..so im not sure if behaviour is different??
dtm
are you doing kickstart or are you doing an interactive installer?
coz if it's kickstart then you need to ensure that you wrote everything correctly.
sky123
kickstart...which then gets the files from the same server...
all purely network install
;)
dtm
totally noninteractive?
sky123
well..most of it minus the cd...and having to specify the ip
dtm
sounds like you have a typo in your kickstart configuration, for one thing, regarding "Cent)S"
sky123
yeah..im gonna go investigate that some more..

AlmostArctic
Hello folks!
I have a few questions about setting up a pop and smtp mail servers, does anybody have a clue?
Anybody?
dtm
oh! well. now that you've specified your audience...
i thought answers were only open to a yet unnamed, select, elite.
AlmostArctic
:-o
dtm
:-o
AlmostArctic
Good evening to you too.
dtm
why hello there
AlmostArctic
Are you the man with the answers?
dtm
as with your previous question, nobody could possibly answer anything that vague.
AlmostArctic
O.k, I'll make it more specific, do you have any experience with setting up mail servers?
dtm
lol.
now that's efficient!
AlmostArctic
?
dtm
combining *both* meaningless questions into one!
we're getting somewhere! right?
<3
AlmostArctic
If you want to help me, please do. If you're only looking for somebody to rebuke, pass on to the next victim please.
NthDegree
lol
dtm
so far you've only asked for permission to ask for help, and i granted it. telepathy mode is presently disabled!
my customer service track record for the day is *excellent*.
NthDegree
AlmostArctic what program are you having trouble with?
dtm
as telepathy mode is not part of my metrics at this time
AlmostArctic
I'm trying to set up a pop and smtp mail servers on my machine. I would appriciate some recommendations as to which program to install for that purpose and why.
dtm
aha!!
AlmostArctic: postfix for smtp is going to be your near unanimous answer, across all of the internet.
AlmostArctic: it's as easy and as powerful as anything
virtually endless docs
howtos
etc
scalability, security, etc
and i'm pretty sure the two top contenders for enterprise imap are courier and dovecot. iirc.
NthDegree
sendmail comes by default with centos so you may want to disable that if you don't intend to use it
dtm
pop3 is a nonissue; people dont install pop3 servers; they configure imap servers to have pop3 frontend drivers.
AlmostArctic
Can I send and receive mail like that with any domain? Even one from no-ip.com for example?
NthDegree
AlmostArctic you may find dyndns to be more reliable, as a general suggestion
dtm
AlmostArctic: if you have an ip address that's available at all times yes
AlmostArctic: are you saying you want to use no-ip.com for your server?
AlmostArctic: as long as your ISP doens't block incoming tcp 25 (smtp) and your system is always up and your dns (mx record) is always accurate, then you're set
AlmostArctic
No. I want to be able to be my own mail server.
dtm
ok obviously yes, but that's not what i asked.
MatBoy
can I see on CentOS which packages are updates as last with yum ?
dtm
MatBoy: /var/log/yum.log
MatBoy
(Action) slams himself :)
AlmostArctic
What's the difference betwenn imap and pop?
dtm
AlmostArctic: pop3 is totally obsolete.
MatBoy
dtm, are you using smbfs ?
dtm
AlmostArctic: imap allows the use of folders and all kinds of other stuff
MatBoy: no.
AlmostArctic
It seems all major mail servers use it.
MatBoy
dtm, damn you are fast :)
dtm
AlmostArctic: they provide an interface yes
MatBoy: lol
AlmostArctic
pop3 that is
dtm
AlmostArctic: it's the lowest common denominator
MatBoy
dtm, are you a bot or something ? Too much speed ?? :p
