dan__t
how does one register the service as an alternative mta?
Evolution
dan__t: you're not using qmail are you?
godson757
its a rpm
that i need
dan__t
f no. i'm straight.
Jenocin
donofrioatwork oooh a pony
rexxon
Hey.. could anyone please tell me how to get an Digest-MD5 hash out of a plain password?
dan__t
How do I do this, Evolution?
Evolution
godson757: that was never a package in centos that I was aware of
are you sure that it wasn't part of a 3rd party repo?
smooge
(Action) watches Centos-2 start trying to do an update to an everything install
         

dan__t
...
Evolution
dan__t: alternatives is a touch confusing. if you want a sample of how it's done, grab the sun-java-compat rpm from jpackage.org (no need to install it)
dan__t
heh
can i just remove the link and re-link it :/
Evolution
just do rpm -qp --scripts sun-java-compat
and look at the scripts
dan__t
hm
donavan
Evolution: isn't there some rule about only have one MTA installed at a time?
or some riffraff along those lines?
Evolution
I don't know, I just use postfix and don't bother fu*king with anything else
the fact that dan__t likes to use qmail is an entirely separate issue
Zerberus
donavan: if have both sendmail and postfix installed, just postfix activated via alternatives
dan__t
I don't like qmail.
I despise qmail.
I told you, I'm straight. I don't use qmail.
smooge
its ok dan__t, you're among friends here. You don't have to hide your latent Bernsteinism.
dan__t
That's a direct insult, which is not appreciated much at all :(
djb makes KITTENS AND BABIES cry, even.
donavan
(Action) mends dan__t's thin skin with molten lead
smooge
I am sorry dan__t ... I have had more than my own emails from djb
I have found that the one love child that should never exist is a genetic mix of djb and theo-de-raadt

cannonball:centos user huh?
:)
cannonball: AC here....what up todd
rexxon
Hey.. could anyone please tell me how to get an Digest-MD5 hash out of a plain password?
donavan
google?
rexxon
i'm looking for it for over half an hour
donofrioatwork
should be able to type what md5 teststring?
ok nevermind (-;
donavan
echo |
rexxon
i'm looking for something like mkpasswd from the debian whois package
         

Evolution
rexxon: it's in expect
Zerberus
http://www.xav.com/perl/site/lib/Digest/MD5.html
rexxon
Evolution: it's not the same, or is it?
Evolution
rexxon: I don't use debian. you tell me.
rexxon
Evolution: no, it isn't :(
cannonball
sky123: dude, how are ya? Send me a /query.
donavan
sure looks like that 2 lines of perl would work
Evolution
sure looks like I don't care
helixblue
heh.. echo "text" | md5sum woulda been good enough
my007ms
What command is run by pppd after a connection was established?
ajones
Where can I find snapshots of centos? I want to deliberately patch a pair of RHEL 4 systems to a relatively old patchlevel
hughesjr
ajones
hughesjr: Well, that's a start. Where can I find old patch sets for 4U3 ?
hughesjr
4.3 has the ISOs
Jack9
how do I check what version of a package I am running, with yum?
ajones
hughesjr: So there have been no patches since U3 ?
hughesjr
ah
those are in our current updates tree
ajones: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/updates/
however 4.3 is our currrent release ... that is not old :)
(4.4 will be out in a coupe days)
couple even
g333k
Hi, I need fuse and fuse-libs from fedora4, do you know if are the avaiable for centos?
smooge
(Action) couldn't wait for 4.4.0 and had to install 4.3.0 today
g333k, no
g333k
smooge, so what can I do now? I need to install those pkgs
smooge
install fc4? try and backport the fuse/fuse-libs back to centos-4?
I don't know. I just know that fuse isnt supported for centos
g333k
smooge, ohh So the solution is to change of distro
smooge
the solution is whatever YOU want it to be. I just gave some options
g333k
smooge, yep
hmmhesays
(Action) rocks out
dtm
do you guys have problems pasting any text containing double hyphens? i can't do it!
they're a magical clipboard canceler!
hmmhesays
cut--n--pasted
dan__t
So what are my options if I want to read ASCII from ttySx
I can't simply cat it or anything can I?
so_
dan__t, yup
dan__t
hrm
I want to read call accounting stats from our PBX
Adria1
hello
dan__t
Hi.
Adria1
hey I got a question about ghosting servers
turnpike420
you gotta scare the crap out of them first
holy netbomb batman
Adria1: as i was saying, you gotta scare the crap out of it
Zathrus
ban RingerE please
he's channel spamming.
Evolution
what the crap is freenode doing?
Adria1
scare the crap out of it?
Zathrus
Evolution: "fixing problem code"
miah
freenode is trying to impersonate itself from a few years ago
just trying to make sure we don't forget that its a pos
Zathrus
Adria1: what do ghosts do?
Adria1
I'm trying to set up a large number of servers
I have one configured correctly
and I want to ghost it, image it. copy it. maybe dd it to all the other servers
Zathrus
(Action) was asking in a metaphorical sense.
as for the rest; look into partimage or setup a kickstart file.
Adria1
(Action) just needed to get that off his chest
kcikstart will only do packages
not the config files
as for systemimager it's not working :/
g333k
Hi, I have installed fuse from the source, now I want to load the module, but when I do: #moprobe fuse, I got this error: FATAL: Module fuse.pc.in not found.
Zathrus
Adria1: it will do config files if you package them yourself.
Evolution
Adria1: %postinstall allows you to do whatever you want
(Action) has configs in cvs to get checked out
Zathrus
or that.
miah
Adria1, look at cfengine, you can configure cfengine to distribute your configuration file changes
or even learn to use subversion/cvs, because you could use those as well
ghost is a pos
i can boot centos into rescue mode, run dd and nc, and have it more functional than ghost =)
Adria1
I'd be happy with just makign a img and sendign it across the network
miah
ya, learn to use the tools
Adria1
I've run into issues with dd
miah
heh
im sure there are tons of bugs in dd
Evolution
ghost doesn't play well with xattr
miah
i bet if you look at the RHEL bugzilla, you'll find tons of bugs reported and closed for dd
Adria1
well I got a bunch of webmin crap on the servers
miah
ya, sounds like you need to learn how to script installs, pull configs either via cfengine or some other similar tool or even a SCM
with kickstart + cfengine, i have isntalls down to about 15 mintues
thats including lots of custom user stuff
not webmin though, because i wouldn't let that pos near my servers
Adria1
yeah well the sr.admin lieks it
miah
that makes me laugh even more
i view webmin as more of a jrsysadmin tool
sr.admins should know how to do these things in less time than it takes to move the mouse to click the button
Adria1
I'm a jr admin ;)
maybe that's why the sr admin wants me to use it
miah
maybe you should trade jobs
just prove to him that you dont need the idiotware and move on
Adria1
Idon't know enough yet
I had to learn yum and rpms as it was. I'm an oldschool slackware ./compile user :P
miah
compiling things really sucks when you have a large amount of systems to manage
unless you compile then distribute the compiled software
Adria1
I complie for my desktop at home
this is my first IT like job
ALL BECAUSE I WENT TO DEFCON
hmmhesays
sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
