evening
cypenguin
hi
i installed centos4.3Server and group "X Window System"
but when i do startx i get an error
"could not open default font 'fixed'"
puzzled
cypenguin: you need to make sure the xfs service is running before you do startx: # service xfs start
cypenguin
well.. i rebooted and now it works... guess reboot start xfs service.
delhage
chkconfig xfs --list
cypenguin
xfs 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
delhage
yup
it starts on (normal) boot
cypenguin
yes, its my first time with centos and i dont remember too much from my RH experience
ALVAN
hi all
how can i restart proftpd in centos
         

cypenguin
/etc/init.d/proftpd restart?
/etc/rc.d/.... ?
ALVAN
i dont have /etc/init.d/proftpd
nope even e/tc/rc.d
Invisible_Magi
locate proftpd
will show you where it is
hali
ALVAN: did you install proftpd as an rpm or from sources?
ALVAN
Invisible_Magi, i kow but i want to restart as u service
my port is opened in xinetd
i trestart xinetd but this dont affetc proftpd
olinux
anyone have recent stats on most popular linux choice for servers?
ALVAN
but it doesn run as i daemon
so xinetd should be enough?
Invisible_Magi
I would suggest reading the manual for proftpd
Lam
answer hali's question
ALVAN
from sources, rmpbuild --rebuild proftp.src.rpm
hali
ALVAN: you don't need to restart anything if it is launched from xinet... since a new process is started every time you login
ALVAN
yes i figure it might be that , but is slow like i have thousands of transfer but really is no transfer
this only when i make negotiation
after that it works well
hali
ALVAN: active/passive firewall problem? disable ident lookups? disable dns lookups?
ALVAN
i cant see the banner
i disabled them
UseReverseDNS off
IdentLookups off
hali
do you even get a user prompt?
ALVAN
yes i get but after 1 minute
after the user promtp
everything goes well
the transfers the CWD directory cahnges, etc
hali
ALVAN: firewall problems?
ALVAN
well strange to be those ones
idont have rules fro filtering port 21
n5red-1
By any chance, does anyone here know where to find rpms of mapping libraries such as libproj, proj-devel & libgeotiff?
hali
ALVAN: ftp uses more ports than port 21...
         

ALVAN
i know 993 for TLS if i remeber
but i only filter port 25
fro mail and thats all
dtm
does anyone here use either mock or mach, or commandline anaconda/kickstart?
z00dax
dtm: what re you trying to do ?
dtm
z00dax: hi!
z00dax: trying to not go insane. i'm trying to install a distro in chroot. not totally particular about what it is but i'm going for fc5 in centos.
(Action) prepares pastebin
z00dax
and yum --install-root is not working ?
dtm
yeah it does. now i wanna try anaconda/kickstart.
http://rafb.net/paste/results/9hwQwt94.html
and that didn't work so i'm trying mach
because my impression is that mock is for building the distro and mach is for building chroots in general and for installing a runtime distro.
is that correct?
range
Nope. They're both doing the same, mach uses apt, mock uses yum (at least the last time I checked).
ALVAN
hali, thanks i forgot that
dtm
range: lol. that's not what the docs say.
range: and this works --> sudo mach -r f5c yum install yum
range
dtm: As said: Last time *I* checked.
dtm
oic!
range: well i'm just morbidly bemused by the whole fiasco that is fedora development
is all
there apparently does not exist any documentation for anaconda, for example
other than THE SOURCE CODE
for those who can read python.
but hey i'm just complaining because i've wasted days trying to defeat the lack of docs.
well that, and, nobody in #fedora-devel can give a straight answer as to how any of the tools work
z00dax
dtm: I am amused by your lack of interest in your own problem
dtm
...............what?!
z00dax
fedora-devel does not develop anaconda either.
fedora-devel is the distro -devel channel iirc
dtm
i know exactly what it is, and that's why i was there. what are you talking about?!
z00dax
obviously nothing that you know about :)
dtm
huh?
z00dax
but thats ok,anyway other channel calls
dtm
i'm sorry, perhaps you mistook my request for help with centos development for a request for unexplainably nonsequitur comments and insults.
if that's what you're going to do, then don't speak.
z00dax
dtm: errr.. whatever
rado2

trying to boot 'linux rescue' from dvd centos 4, after selecting the language it is prompting for wich device contains media, ???, i set local cdrom and it doesn't found the cdrom for media, hints?
rado2
range: rndc-config -a ???
range
rado2: As I do not know your setup at all and don't know what you're trying to do at the moment, I'll refrain from answering that question.
rado2
range, just trying to satisfy bind
range
rado2: Just type rndc-confgen and paste the output to the correct files ...
rado2
k thx
sm0ketst
ok, something weird with dvd for centos 4.4, it doesn't found the linux rescue image. Just booting with cd 4.1 disk 1 and it's working ok
zkorpio
hi room
bronze
7 ops at once.... This looks serious. (or is it friday already....)
zkorpio
anyone knows why i receive usually this message when i use yum?
http://rh-mirror.linux.iastate.edu/pub/dag/redhat/el4/en/x86_64/dag/repodata/primary.xml.gz: [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror
sometimes it is fine but another are wrong
Evolution
zkorpio: have you considered asking dag or the rpmforge user's list?
as it's not really our repository.
we can't help with it, and have no control over it.
zkorpio
Evolution: mmm.... so do you think that maybe it is problem of dag ?
Evolution: of your repositories?
Evolution
zkorpio: dag's repositories are not centos repositories.
it's a 3rd party repository which works with centos.
IceZone
would someone advise on the useage of a cluster for doing a bbs with http/ftp/telnet/gopher/finger/irc built into the bbs package
should i even bother attempting to install ultramonkey on centos 3?
donavan
sm0ketst: did you file a bug at bugs.centos.org ?
killermach
I have a friend trying to install and use centos4 and X doesn't start, we get "no devices found"
I looked at /etc/inittab and set it to run level 5 (from 3)
but no X, looking at /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I find he installed on an Nvidia card but currently has a trident installed, the xorg.conf driver is "nv"
I cannot find how to reconfigure xorg in Centos
anyone help me out? googling finds references to system-config-display but this command is not on his systme
n5red-1
yum install system-config-display
then system-config-display --reconfig
mmcgrath
IceZone: take alook at the gfs cluster suite.
killermach
n5red-1, thanks
I get "no devices found, cannot start X" when I run "system-config-display --reconfig"
Invisible_Magi
XF86Config
sounds like your missing a monitor
well, your config is maybe missing the monitor
killermach
Invisible_Magi, he currently is in runlevel 3 and, If I run system-config-display --reconfig from an ssh I get a window which detects his monitor/card and correct resolution
but I am running Linux xorg on my laptop, so I can see that I get a windos to my remote xserver
but if he runs system-config-display --reconfig from tty1 as root it won't run
and XF86Config isn't on his machine
rado2
what's the permission for var/named/chroot/etc/rndc.conf?
chown
root user group named?
killermach
n5red-1, thanks anyhow.. this was a new install, we will format reinstall on the new hardware
goodnight and thanks again
rado2
nobody monitoring?
my bind is completely apart
dunno why it started today
Meier_
monitoring what?
rado2
the irc
ran rndc-confgen bunch of times
can't get it goin again
jrsims
