what is the util to edit firewall configuration through shell? (to open/close ports)
smooge
vi
vgoltser
and the configuration file is in /etc?
Arrfab
vgoltsed : /etc/sysconfig/iptables if you're using the standard one ...
vgoltser
if I want to allow a shotucast server, the binary is 'sc_serv' is 'sc_serv:tcp' proper for the Other ports section?
I need to open port 8000 and 8001
smooge
then I would use the port numbers versus names.. they are probably not in /etc/services
pony
Hi orc_orc
vgoltser
comma delimeted?
"8000,8001" without quotes?
got it
thank you :)\
donavan

vgoltser

willyk
Hello
I have CentOS4.3 with RAID1, as he is the commando to synchronize manually?
uson sync
philwyett
willyk, Better info if you want help. What adaptor, is it hardware, are you software raid etc. pop lack info questions will not get a reply if people have to work to get the basic info needed.
willyk
raid1 creates it from the controller and linux I detect and this to it using sync
and I am using smeserver7 based on CentOS4.3
philwyett
willyk, I am not familiar with this, but the more info you can provide maybe someone can help. However, the IRC channel is a quick resource, maybe a mail to the centos mailing lsit may give better results.

Can someone explain to why this happens?: 1. I delete everything in the /boot directory. 2. I boot the machine via live CD and mount the boot directory. 3. Restore boot directory from tape. 4. Reboot machine and it stops at the grub prompt.
Why does this happen?
Zal
I am trying to shrink the root partition of a running machine using LVM. When trying to shrink from 66G to 56G, ext2online tells me "/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 has 17367040 blocks cannot shrink to 14680064". Yet there's only 2G of data on the partition. How can the shrinking be achieved?
donavan
online shrinking isn't supported
steve
hi all
Zal
donavan isn't supported by what?
nuccad68
ext3
donavan
ext2online
Zal
as far as I can tell, online shrinking is what ext2online is for
steve
I've just changed the name of my LV and VG via rescue mode and have also modified fstab, but when I boot it panics because it's still trying to find VolGroup00 - is there another file I need to be editing?
Zal
donavan the man page says "The ext2online tool resizes ext2 file systems while they are mounted and in use by the system."
nuccad68 hm, you're suggesting that ext2 can be resized, but not ext3?
donavan
keep reading: It is only possible to enlarge a mounted filesystem.
nuccad68
Zal: no neither can be _shrinked_ online
LuvRedheads
(Action) waits
nuccad68
only extened online
Zal
hm, I missed that part. Thanks.
         

nuccad68
np
steve
any ideas guys
?*
donavan
grub?
steve
changed all that
I've searched /etc for "VolGroup00" and it returns nothing
donavan
is /etc/grub.conf a symlink?
steve
yes, to /boot/grub
guillemot
Anyone here use mod_ldap and ssl?
donavan
steve did you follow some guide somewhere?
steve
donavan: nope
guillemot
sorry AuthLDAP and ssl
donavan
maybe using lvm vgrename should have been investigated first

if i have a boot.iso in the cd rom
is there a way of saying "just boot the installed os"
(assuming its installed ok)
Zerberus
just do not press a key when asked to do for booting from CD
donavan
boot.iso is for starting installation
EartH
yo guys i am newbiew to this new o.s.
how do allow anonymous ftp acess to a new installed box
|BNz
[23:49] <Zerberus> just do not press a key when asked to do for booting from CD
how about typing: boot
Evolution
EartH: you'll want to configure vsftpd
|BNz
also sometimes the installer makes the cd try pop out
i'm trying to achieve 2 things:
EartH
yes sumthing like that
donavan
EartH: google site:centos.org/docs/4 anonymous ftp
|BNz
1. install using a boot.iso
Evolution
EartH: you'll also want to think about doing so with little experience within the OS (or any os for that matter)
EartH
i have a client that needs a ftp server on the box
|BNz
2. not let the cd tray pop out but still test the installed OS
Evolution
EartH: ftp is a common method for breakins
|BNz
(bah consoles!)
Evolution
EartH: then set it up for them
|BNz
is that actually possible?
Evolution
EartH: (we help you as much as you demonstrate that you're helping yourself. at this point, you're up to the "RTFM" response)
EartH
and i basicly would like to supply his clients with username and password to acess certain folders
mm allright
y
donavan
EartH: did you read what I sent you?
Evolution
EartH: there's no reason for us to walk you through it step by step when you're getting paid and we're not.
donavan
darn pony napper
Evolution
there's assisting with learning, and then there's free outsource support
|BNz
im desperately trying to learn to get centos installer going via console
getting quite far... i nearly got remote driver disks working and so forth
these servers dont give you a "press a key to boot from cdrom" option like my home computer does
am i doing something wrong~?
donavan
visit your bios settings?
|BNz
ok
problem is they dont see to work this current moment in terms of the serial config
JDStone
I'm trying to install vim and it's not working. I installed vim-common, is that the right one?
|BNz
is there a way of telling the boot.iso to boot the OS from it@/
?
Evolution
JDStone: that gives you the base, but you probably want vim-enhanced
|BNz
perhaps its my f1 key not working via serial
JDStone
ahh, thanks Evolution
|BNz
*sigh - i keep revisiting the driver disk
and i cant seem to get into the damn bios of this thing - even though i can see it !
:)

Zerberus

donavan
(Action) kicks Zerberus in the head for talking to dead air
Zerberus
donavan: that hurts
;)
|BNz
last time i said anything out of order i think you guys kicked me
i help various people with very little clue get certain things (open source things) going...

i was booted out of #centos for basically asking the other day
told it wasnt worth bothering getting it going etc

coywolf
how to clean up /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES ? need I clean it up?
Evolution
coywolf: the rm command works well.
donavan
how did you get sutff in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES?
Evolution
there are also options you can pass to rpmbuild to help out.
coywolf
donavan, by rpm -i
donavan, rpm -i foo.src.rpm
donavan
ahh, one of them
pony
Hi orc_orc
Evolution
coywolf: either rm, or pass --rmsource to rpmbuild and the spec file.
