orc_orc
jamin: the indication in in the .spec files and the rpmbuild process and my be trivially queried using either rpm or yum to one who will learn to use these parts of the packagin system as a tool
s/my/may/
jamin
orc_orc, where in the spec file does it indicate the required package I was missing? I'm very curious...
orc_orc
jamin: what were you building?
I was not around earlier
jamin
orc_orc, trying to prep the kernel source
orc_orc
jamin: I would make sure my build tools were complete then; something like: yum -y install gcc make at a minimum
jamin
rpmbuild -bp --target=i686 kernel-2.6.spec was segfaulting
gcc and make where installed
orc_orc
jamin: 'segfaulting'? I doubt it
the build may have ben failing, however
jamin
orc_orc, I pasted the exact error
         

orc_orc
jamin: pastebin number URL please
jamin
it was in channel
let me see if I still have it
orc_orc
no - one does not paste in this channel, per the topic, and the webpage

I have a CentOS 4.3 with two ethernet cards, that I would like to set up as a NATing gateway -- any suggestions on a web site that might have the right iptables rules on it ?
orc_orc
CoffeeIV: sure: http://www.centos.org/docs/
has full doco
jamin
orc_orc, it was two lines, looking for it
turnpike420
are there packages to be found for adding more ghostscript fonts to a system... well, I'm finding some in google hits, are they standard packages or found in other repos?
Ikki
i fix it
10x
orc_orc
turnpike420: the other GS fonds are primarily for CJK fonts -- you need those?
s//fonts/
jamin
orc_orc, seems it's lost donavan and Evolution saw the error though
turnpike420
well... I'm not sure what CJK fonts are... but I'm trying to give more fonts to ps2pdf...
I'd like to be able to give stupid wingding.TTF to it

orc_orc your pony: http://tinyurl.com/ms4yy
turnpike420
try try try as you may
:)
orc_orc
there we go ;)
enjoy your pony, turnpike420
turnpike420
heh, thanks... it would seem ghostscript-fonts should be an available package, no?
oh, I already have that
orc_orc
turnpike420: I see it installed here -- do you not see it?
turnpike420
no I have it... are font maps and chkfontdirs and such still needed to get new TTF fonts into the system?
ones which ghostscript can use?
         

orc_orc
turnpike420: as I recall there some install time items used in font rebuilding, which are or were not called out in explicit Req's so that once installed they might be removed -- is space so tight on the unit in question that you care?
turnpike420
nah, space is not an issue
orc_orc
why spend time even thinking about it then?
turnpike420
I was hoping it would be as simple as adding the TTF file to a specific directory and poof, I'm done...
euclid
goodsh*t: please don't ask us to do your homework for you
orc_orc
turnpike420: the pony is turned into glue
pony
(Action) backs away
orc_orc
goodsh*t: poweroff will work
CoffeeIV
orc_orc: the CentOS docs don't have anything as simple and useful as this: http://www.netfilter.org/documentation/HOWTO//NAT-HOWTO-4.html#ss4.1
orc_orc
there was no constraint that the unit be usable afterward.
turnpike420
orc_orc: heh, I've not been following the pony/glue stuff... so I don't get the reference... LOL
pony
(Action) squeals
turnpike420
orc_orc: I can see if ghostscript was compiled with the ttfonts option by installing the src.rpm and checking the spec file right?
orc_orc
euclid: he did not like my answer, I guess
turnpike420: nfi
turnpike420
orc_orc: CJK, Chinese, Japanese, Korean... eh... weird
orc_orc
turnpike420: not if you want to use CJK ;)
turnpike420
nah, I'm thinkin I need english TTF
orc_orc
turnpike420: gee, da ya think?
turnpike420
mmmmm, ya :D
Pretor1ab
hello all
is there an rpm or yum repository to help install courier please?
miah
check dag
Pretor1ab
i had trouble installing the dag repo
could you please advise
miah
uh, read the dag website, all you have to do is install a rpm and then enable it
Pretor1ab
ok thanks
orc_orc
miah: need to add teh yum.conf entry first ....
miah
the rpmforge.rpm will take care of all of it
it adds the proper files to yum.repos.d
then you just need to enable those.. i didnt do squat to my yum.conf
Pretor1ab
i installed the rpmforge rpm no problem
miah
changing a 0 to a 1 is hard?
Pretor1ab
yes you are right
but knowing which 0 to change isnt as easy
miah
uh
the "enable=0" is the one you want to change
Pretor1ab
where are we talking about >
squirrelpimp
ok, i just set up azureus, now i'm going to share bandwidth for testing purposes and thought of just seeding a centos torrent.
which one should i chose?
Pretor1ab
i am gonna assume in the yum.repos.d/dag.rop
miah
good job
Pretor1ab
well i have an rpmforge.repo but no dag.repo
my rpmforge.repo is enabled
miah
same thing
dag == rpmforge
Pretor1ab
kool
but i still cannot find courier*
should it be there?
orc_orc
Pretor1ab: try: yum list '*courier*' -- the glob may be being eaten by your shell
squirrelpimp
would it help to seed the server-cd?
oder some bigger image?
miah
well it might not be in there..
Pretor1ab
thanks orc_orc
miah
wtf uses courier anyways.. dovecot works great
Pretor1ab
vhcs
orc_orc
miah: people running mailservers for their parents? ;)
Pretor1ab
i use scalix
miah
parents dont care which imapd yo'ure running
Pretor1ab
but wnated vhcs2 control panel
wanted*
no results for list *courier*
what did you get orc_orc
orc_orc
Pretor1ab: I do not run non-centos mainline binary yum archives other than my own -- dunno
Pretor1ab
ok

Zerberus
http://www.c-corp.net/linux/centos/4/generic/SRPMS/
Pretor1ab

thanks Zerberus - great link

hello again
i am trying to build my own courier rpm and get the error: Name/Version/Release/Summary/Group/Licence field must be present in package: (main package)
Zerberus
http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/drafts/rpm-guide-en/
Pretor1ab
can anyone help me understand what this means please and how to fix it
Zerberus
the .spec file is broken or you do something very wrong
donavan
why not use the provided imap server(s)
or you trying for the MTA?
orc_orc
Pretor1ab: congratulations - see: http://www.rpm.org/hintskinks/ for lots of help, and indeed two FULL books, and a 50 page tutorial on the process
Pretor1ab
courier is a rerequisite for another application i am trying to setup
donavan
sounds like a dangerous app
Pretor1ab
thanks orc_orc/ Zerberus
orc_orc
Zerberus: Red Hat has asked that we not deep link into their site
Zerberus
orc_orc: o, sorry then
orc_orc
;)
donavan
orc_orc: that applies to the website only, afaiac
Zerberus
while the rpm draft is owned by the fedora community project
donavan
(Action) takes another tranquilzer
orc_orc
donavan: don't teach me to suck eggs ;)
and fedora is owned by Red Hat
donavan
the "communitity is a facade
Zerberus
not really owned, they sponsor it massively
orc_orc
there is no fedora community project of independent ownership any more
Pretor1ab
anyone know how to fix error: Name field must be present in package: (main package) <-- that
Zerberus
Pretor1ab: please read the docs
donavan
Pretor1ab: you are off topic in here
woot, I want a pony now
pony
donavan your pony: http://tinyurl.com/ms4yy

SunRayCafe
downloaded, burned, installed CentOS4 Server CD. Wanting to update the httpd and php by one point rev each to match a server I'm replacing. CentOS Base repo doesn't have the newer point revs available... Is there another recomended repo I can connect to?
orc_orc
SunRayCafe: updates issue fairly continuously -- run: yum -y upgrade and you may find what you neek
LuvRedheads
I love to see well thought out plans ....
donavan
SunRayCafe: you need to read the backporting link in the /topic
