how to install vnc on centosĀ”
?
euclid
man yum
dan__t
Speaking of... is there a way to set whcih repositories have preference over others, in the event that each repository has different versisons of the same package or anything?
euclid
yes, and it has been discussed frequently on the mailing list for the past few months
martintoy
hmm it reminds me a question that I had for some time ago
         

dan__t
word, i'll check the archives.
martintoy
I found that centos 4.2 comes with samba-3.0.10
range
And so does 4.3.
martintoy
which, as far as I worked with it, it has some problems using it as a PDC
I needed to download samba 3.0.20 which worked fine
my question is why samba is not been updated in repositories or CD distributions?
TR0N1C
Hello
I have a strange question about Squid.
martintoy
the only problem I found at the moment is that, other packages Im happy
TR0N1C
I made an SSH tunnel from a web server to portforward 443 to my squid proxy server.
P4C0
is centos se enabled?
devhen
martintoy: sounds like you should ask in #samba maybe someone there can point you in the direction of a 3.0.20 package or know why those pkgs havent been released
euclid
martintoy: Understanding Backporting: http://tinyurl.com/r77l2
TR0N1C
I want a client machine set with that proxy to be able to access the original web server with it's real hostname.
devhen
P4C0: yes.
TR0N1C
Currently I have to point browser to localhost to see the originsl webserver.
range
martintoy: Because CentOS will stay at a given version all the time. Security fixes (and maybe other bugfixes) will be backported.
TR0N1C
Any solution?
martintoy
ok guys, as I dont know how packages are choosen for repositories or etc Im asked that
P4C0
devhen, do you know how can I allow connections to postgresql?? I have it configured in pg_hba.conf file, but it seems that something else is blooking it... and I'm not familiar with se, operation
martintoy
but I will ask to samba team about it, they provide the rpm in their website, just I wanted to foind it using yum
devhen
P4C0: try the options under the SELinux tab on system-config-securitylevel
P4C0
devhen, humm no X here :p
         

devhen
martintoy: just install it from their web site
P4C0: sorry then, cant help ya. havent done much with SELinux aside from the common options avail in that dialog
P4C0
devhen, thanks :)
euclid
martintoy: feel free to install it from their website, however note that they package things differently than RHEL/CentOS, so it's likely to spin you into dependency hell
I wouldn't recommend it
why do you think you need a newer samba?
devhen
martintoy, euclid: depends on if they offer a RH version of the package
martintoy
euclid I see, I already installed without any dependency problem
devhen
martintoy: then you shouldnt have problems. chances are the .rpm was built for RH systems
martintoy
euclid because I needed to setup a PDC
which version 3.0.10 "seems" to have some problems with it
in the samba forums they say install newer version (3.0.18 and up)
when I installed 3.0.20 all problems gone
euclid
ok, just remember if it breaks, you get the pieces
devhen
nahh, if it breaks yum remove samba, reinstall 3.0.10 its not a big deal
martintoy
ok guys, then another thing is where the hell I can find documentation about se linux?
range
The SELinux guide on centos.org/docs/4 could be a start.
martintoy
usually I disable it to avoid any problem I think it could be a great deal to enable it and work with it
boudiccas
martintoy; selinux interferes with k3b such that you can't burn discs
leastways, thats my expereince anyways, ymmv
range
boudiccas: MMDV
boudiccas
:)
range; i'll buy it, what does mmdv mean? :)
range
My Mileage Does Vary.
boudiccas
thought it was something like that :)
range
I have no problems burning cds with k3b with SELinux turned on.
boudiccas
i found that i had to turn it off before i could burn my dvd's
martintoy
hmm I see I would like to enable it on my servers
boudiccas
so it appears that mileages do vary
martintoy
(hopefully all of them Centos)
range
boudiccas: What do the audit logs say to those problems?
boudiccas
dunno, that was several months ago
just left it disabled now
martintoy
boudiccas yeah I think so, I would not risk my access to servers that are thousands of miles away from me
/o\
boudiccas
martintoy; but then you don't want servers burning cd's do you? :)
martintoy
so, who uses selinux then?
boudiccas no, I dont have servers burning cds
boudiccas
not i
Daemoen
hey hughesjr, since youre the one that wrote the guide I am about to follow, your postfix/dovcot guide, how do you specify the smtp port? ( i have to use 587 as my default recieve port )
Pretor1ab
hello
if i use cpan -- i then want to query or list the available packages
is there a way to list available cpan modules
donavan
cpan is bad
Evolution
s/bad/EVIL/
donavan
thou shalt seek guidance elsewhere as well
Evolution
Pretor1ab: cpan is a very quick way to render the perl system on your box *hosed*
donavan: why was he supposed to seek guidance elsewhere?
I was all set to break out the soap box and preach against the evil spirits which reside in the cpan hell
donavan
in #hoseyoursystem
martintoy
I used cpan without any problem so far
Daemoen
anyone else know how to specify which ports postfix listens on and which it sends on, as well as how to use a smarthost ;)
Evolution
Daemoen: see postfix documentation. well covered in there.
Daemoen
if its written like the iptables documentation, im better off commiting seppuku :p
Evolution
martintoy: the problem with cpan is that it's not stable, doesn't update the rpm database, and can occasionally replace large chunks of the rpm installed perl
martintoy
Evolution uuh I see
Evolution
martintoy: this means that if an update to the base perl system comes out, and you attempt to update, it will see files that don't match what's listed, and fail.
martintoy
for some perl modules I prefer to download it from cpan
so_
Daemoen, better get out the short knife :P actually the Postfix documentation is well written
martintoy
Evolution Ive seen that
Evolution
martintoy: it's best to use pre-packaged cpan modules from rpmforge or kbs-extras
martintoy: in some cases where such modules don't exist, perl2rpm or cpan2rpm work reasonably well to help you avoid perl system fu*kage.
(Action) goes to see a phone about some food.
so_
food from phones...interesting concept
donavan
prolly maggots that crawl out of the mouth peice after he talks on it for a moment
martintoy
hey just to know, I know its not of relevance, but most of you where are located?
Daemoen
cant stand the iptables documentation
martintoy
I think iptables is hard to understand at first
I have an iptables that almost always helps me
so I modify IPs here and there to suit my needs
I think is hard to know someone that fully understands it
so_
I just use shorewall and abstract my iptables knowledge out
martintoy
I used shorewall, I like it
but I prefer to control all in rules,
(its my opinion)
so_
it's just an iptables wrapper, full control is available, either by using options or writing very specific rules
tongueroo

dan__t

tongueroo

SunRayCafe
Loading a Dell PowerEdge SC1425 with CentOS 4, using the Server ISO downloaded from centos.org Have two drives, 300G each, on a hardware RAID. When the server boots, it recognizes the RAID 1 configuration. We ran the Dell Utility disc to install the Linux RAID controller, and that worked fine. However, during the CentOS install, it sees the drives as two seperate devices.
does anyone know what I might be missing here?
hughesjr
if it is a perc/2 controller their is no linux driver
for c4
SunRayCafe
hardware guy tells me it's not perc/2. He thinks it might be a perc/4, we can find out.
correction
it's an adaptec
sorry about that
hughesjr
maybe look for a driver on the dell site (linux.dell.com)
donavan
which adaptec card?
hughesjr
http://linux.dell.com/storage.shtml
SunRayCafe
okay... downloaded a driver, going to make a driver disc... we'll give that a go
thanks
donavan
SunRayCafe: it fake raid
s/it/its
SunRayCafe
fake raid?
donavan
fake hardware raid, google will fill in the details
hughesjr
SunRayCafe: lots of cards are really software raid with windows drivers
SunRayCafe
hmmmm...
donavan
the dell site offers NO hardware raid controller
hughesjr
it depends on the models
donavan
and CentOS only sees the drives because they look like regular sata drives
hughesjr: within the SC1425 product?
bleve
hmmh. adaptect i2o raid?
i2o raid controller is not autodetected.
you need to select I2O driver manually when you install.
hmmh. sc1425 is low end server with no hw raid if I remeber correctly.
hughesjr
donavan: I have several of those ... but none w/ raid
donavan
hughesjr: I was just trying to customize on the Dell site
bleve
but it might have slot for adaptect I2O zero channel raid controller.
not that I understand how it could make performance better.
hughesjr
looks like only software sata raid to me ...
bleve
yep. I have one of those and it's md raid configured.
hughesjr
I use soaftware raid on all mine ... (I think we have 8 of those)
bleve
I prefer software raid over hw raid generally.
donavan
SunRayCafe: has never been able to answer the "Which controller" question.
SunRayCafe
sorry, just found that out U 320
