Greetings. After you've installed xfce, if you want to change the system default from gnome to xfce, where do you go to do it?
alleycat
I for one would hack /etc/X11/prefdm
TheDruidXpawX
works for me. What do I change the display manager to?

I have a VPS server running CentOS 3.8. I'm trying to determine what, if any, IPSec support is included. I have installed ipsec-tools. Can anybody point me in the right direction to figure this out?
z00dax
blueandwhiteg3: www.centos.org/docs/3
blueandwhiteg3: be warned that vps' providers might change the distro in odd ways, so cater to expect that
blueandwhiteg3
z00dax: yes, I know... that's why I'm trying to figure out what my kernel has in it
I feel like a bit of an idiot, but I don't know how to find that out, lsmod doesn't list anything
z00dax
blueandwhiteg3: rpm -ql kernel-<version> | grep "lib/mod" | less
uname -r will tell you your <version>
blueandwhiteg3
hmm, 2.4.20-021stab028.19.777-smp
z00dax
openvz or virtuzzo then
         

LuvRedheads
errrrr
blueandwhiteg3
virtuozzo
z00dax: that command you gave me is failing
perfectspiral
blueandwhiteg3: because the kernel is not installed, because of virtuozzo
if we get an rpm header, we can find out
z00dax
blueandwhiteg3: rpm -qa | grep kern - and paste the output of that to http://pastebin.ca
i gotagoeat
blueandwhiteg3
z00dax: glibc-kernheaders-2.4-8.34.2
z00dax
is that all you get ?#
blueandwhiteg3
yes
z00dax
open a support ticket with the hosting company and ask them then - you dont have access to do any kernel foo
maybe its not that much of a vps then after all :)

hi, any1 can point me a good guide of building firewalls with centos?
z00dax
[Racer-X]: man iptables
[Racer-X]: and after that : man ip
TheDruidXpawX
Racer-X: I'd look at installing shorewall
then if you want a web user interface to it, you can install webmin
blueandwhiteg3
Can I use DAG RHEL 3 packages with my CentOS 3.8 server?
[Racer-X]
Thanks TheDruidXpawX that is what i looking for... but i dont have to much work to do, i need to only migrate the actual firewall running to a CentOS that i nedd start from scratch but i will keep all rules and .conf´s so i dont have to much trouble to setup all toghether
ddn
hi all
is there any special consideration installing centos on a two processors computer?
iiro-
nope...
just do it ;)
ddn
cool
is it better a p IV or a two P II processors computer?
bennry
hi guys.
just installed CentOS 4 for the first time.
iiro-
you hopefully mean PIII
ddn
iiro-: well could be
iiro-
ddn, it must depend on software... but I guess P4 is a better one... and there's hyperthreading too.
bennry, I did too about two months ago (to a production DB server) and it's working like a charm :)
         

bennry
iiro, thanks. I plan to use it for an internal webserver for my company. I've dealt with fedora in the past, but have heard only good things about centos (like it's free)
what DB do you use?
iiro-
MySQL.
bennry
nice.
iiro-
we're are using RH EL ~everywhere
CentOS is almost the same. :)
but without support :)
bennry
yeah, well, then it's like Windows.
without the problems.
iiro-
yeah :D
bennry
all of the machines here use Windows xp Home (around 100 employees)
iiro-
I used to use Debian but... got bored to the old stuff.
yep
bennry
and I nearly had a head explosion.
:)
iiro-
our online web servers are RH EL, workstations (about 300) are WinXP Pro
bennry
ok
do you use Samba?
iiro-
nope
we have Windows-servers too
bennry
ah.
iiro-
it's much easier that way
bennry
so for non-file servers, like you said, you're using CentOS and RH EL.
iiro-
and it's practically impossible to replace such products as Exchange.
yep
bennry
true, there are some decent OS rip-offs of exchanges though.
z00dax
iiro-: have you seen zimbra and scalix ? its quite easy to start replaving exchange with something like that
iiro-
sorry to speak "good" from Microsoft but...
bennry
but your'e right, it's not the same.
iiro-
z00dax, sorry, my focus is elsewhere, we just think that there's a place for different OSses (as long as the "collection" stays simple) :)
my job is to look after our linuxes and develop some web software, that's it :)
z00dax
iiro-: fair enough, i was just saying that it is quite simple to start replacing exchange stuff - but then that again depends on how much of an investment you have into ms products/problems
bennry
z00dax: are they open source? Is there any support available?
iiro-
and desktops... sad to say but 1) many software vendors are still platform dependent 2) windows is good and simple enough at workstations.
z00dax, yep
bennry
z00: my company has yet to implement exchange, and I'm trying to push an alternative.
z00dax
bennry: they are open source, and yes there are support options as well
bennry
z00dax: I'll look them up, thank you.
z00dax
bennry: you will do well to look at Scalix
and then zimbra, or well look at them both
bennry
z00: I actually have looked into Scalix and then had to use time elsewhere.
hm.
ok.
z00dax
not sure what that means..
iiro-
have you checked the Apple news today?
quite excited about iPhone myself...
bennry
yeah, the iPhone, the iTV, and the iNuke?
z00dax
how is that related to centos ?
bennry
:)
iiro-
z00dax, that was offtopic but... :D
sorry :)
donavan
the iJoke run bsd
iiro-
yep
bennry
z00dax: are either of these a complete replacement for exchange?
z00dax: how do they run on CentOS compared with something more minimal, like debian?
z00dax
bennry: they are supported and developed on CentOS
scalix's own demo teams run their s/w on CentOS
bennry
oh my, ok.
iiro-
cool
bennry
I'm downloading zimbra right now.

why not work?
aussieaubs
hey guys - is there a beryl package for CentOS??
z00dax
aussieaubs: what version of xorg does beryl need ?
aussieaubs
z00dax : hmmm good q...
Name : xorg-x11
Arch : i386
Version: 6.8.2
Release: 1.EL.13.37.2
sigterm
hm that zimbra is pretty interesting
z00dax
aussieaubs: look at the topic of the channel, do not paste stuff here
and how did you work out that this was the version that beryl worked with
aussieaubs
oops sorry
saint_
hi all ...
YoYo
I have "Virtual 1280 1024" in xorg.conf, but the virtual desktop is getting set to 1600x1200. how do I stop this behavior?
(Action) wishes torture and death to whomever thought it would be a good thing to have a desktop that slides all over the damned place
saint_
how can i know what version of GD is installed ?
YoYo
rpm -q gd
Raythiest
how many cd's do i need to download to perform the workstation install? all of them?
Evolution
Raythiest: yes.
Raythiest
ok great thanks
thats 1-4 correct?
Evolution
yes.
Raythiest
sweet
Evolution
or the dvd.
Raythiest
yeah.... i dont have any blank dvd's and a ton of cd's ..... im too lazy to go get dvd's
im way to sick of doing upgrades every six months
need something with a longer release life
anyone here use fglrx?
miah
no need to burn them all
just the first disk, you could download them all, and export them via nfs, ftp, or http
you dnt even need to burn the first disk if you can setup a pxe environment
Raythiest
im not that technical
lol
miah
oh
Raythiest
i know how to export via ftp and all that but pxe? whats that?
Evolution
(Action) watches Raythiest's eyes glass over as miah demonstrates geek superiority
miah
hah
pxe is the preboot execution environment
it allows your network card to get a ip address via dhcp and then load a binary. generally a bootloader so that you can install your operating system
alot of server hardware supports it.. great stuff for server build-outs
Raythiest
well cant modify my current bootloader
bish0p
Raythiest: or you could download just the server CD, install a minimal amount of server stuff, then yum install all the workstation stuff
NetGangsta
Hi There anyone know how i can install gcc compiler on centOS?
bish0p
that is what I do, but I've got my own local mirror of centos so it is fairly fast to do that
NetGangsta: yum install gcc
NetGangsta: although, if you don't have gcc you probably don't have much of the development libraries either.. and you'll want alot of that stuff too.
NetGangsta: and if that is the case you'll probably just want to do: yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
