KuJaX
what is the command to see exact FULL version of CentOS I am running in console?
range
cat /etc/redhat-release or rpm -q centos-release
KuJaX
range: I swear there was another way, a generic universal linux distro command to check distro and version
Dyson
KuJaX: iirc there was a LSB way to do that...
KuJaX: lsb_release -a
range
lsb_release -a
If the distribution tries to conform to lsb.
KuJaX
"lsb_release: command not found"
All I freaking want is Asterisk and SugarCRM to work on the same exact freaking thing without jumping through 500 hoops. Jeezus I have been at this all day trying 5 different distros. one always works or the other, never both.
I installed a linux, php, mysql and sugarcrm bootable that works great for SugarCRM. Now I need to install asterisk of which now I don't have GCC, CC, CL to install properly. And I don't have yum, nor know what version of linux I am runnig.

Centos... the minty RedHat
range
That's interesting. Because you cannot really install a system without the "redhat-lsb" package.
Because that one pulls in *tons* of requirements and is used as a meta package.
j[o]j
any wacom pad user on linux?
         

Dyson
wtf is a wacom pad?
mandraks
that being the whole point of LSB in the first place
j[o]j
so what is wtf?
Dyson
aah... a tablet
no, not currently
j[o]j
goal ..
ok
Dyson
but I had IBM tablets running with RedHat 9 without real issues
mandraks
ah redhat 9
Dyson
i.e. plug-in, add some arcane lines to XF86Config and it worked
j[o]j
umm
Dyson
probably it is even easier nowadays
j[o]j
how can i compile IRIX packages on fedora ?
range
This is neither #fedora nor #irix
j[o]j
well..
Dyson
j[o]j: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Wacom-Tablet-HOWTO.html#ss5.3
j[o]j: might help with the wacom-issue :)
j[o]j
Dyson: spasiba
mandraks
J[o]j irix is 64 bit
mips
Dyson
spasiba?
j[o]j
Dyson: thnx

hello, I've got a question
is CentOS easy to setup and maintain using GUI tools?
         

Daemoen
hey guys, does anyone here know of a universal program that will accurately and thoroughly test a dvdrw drive?
ed_mann
mechcozmo: what do u want to maintain?
what applications?
mechcozmo
DHCP, FTP, HTTP (multiple domains), IMAP, SMTP
(i'm doing research, and CentOS have come up as a good server OS)
ed_mann
do u want gtk/qt gui or web based?
mechcozmo
either/or
web based is nice because I may not be home to access it directly
ed_mann
have u looked at webmin? i give that to my clients that want to admin there own machine.
mechcozmo
but i don't care so much
webmin?
(Action) is googling...
ooh, nifty
ed_mann
Daemoen: what do u mean by "universal"
mechcozmo
ed_mann: can you give me some idea as to if squirrelmail is easy to setup and use?
ed_mann
mechcozom: yes it is.
i just did it last night.
the document is not finished, do you have open office? or Acrobat Reader?
I documented the setup with password plugin.
i will post it to my site if you want to read over it. It also contains spamassassin maia mailguard and postfix
mechcozmo
i have NeoOffice and Preview (OS X user here)
ed_mann
i wanted to get it out earlier this week, but it was missing a huge amount of detail.
that should work.
Hold on a sec. I will get it published.
mechcozmo
so squirrelmail's config is separate from Webmin?
ed_mann
(Action) goes to create a squirrelmail.
mechcozmo
do they conflict with one another? (seeing as they are both web-based)
ed_mann
(Action) sees that reading and typing is bad
mechcozmo: no webmin runs on port 10000 https, squirrelmail uses apache.
(Action) now goes to create pdf document
mechcozmo
so then would squirrelmail interfere with any websites that I might be hosting?
(my dad's, mine, my dog's, etc.)
ed_mann
no
my document will show you how to setup a virtual host for squirrelmail.
if you have questions let me know.
mechcozmo
alright thanks
and this is the last question before I grab the CentOS torrent
is there a way to auto-ban IP addresses that fail authentication 5 times (or some other number?) for a certain amount of time?
ed_mann
for pop/imap?
mechcozmo
for anything
ed_mann
ya
i have a doc on that as well... let me fo find it.
mechcozmo
altho FTP is where the most annoying IPs hit up
ed_mann
i will put it up there.
i had to do it for ftp and mail on one of my boxes. well the only one that was on the net.
it's easy to setup.
mechcozmo
I'm planning on having this box be the main server
Daemoen
one that will test any brand of drive, not just specific brands
mechcozmo
and I'll take another motherboard out of its case and just use a floppy-based distro as a firewall
alleycat
mechcozmo: you can do that in several ways
a) iptables, recent match
b) denyhosts
c) pam
"that" == auto-ban IP addresses
for c) look into pam_abl
mechcozmo
i'm not sure what most of those mean, but iptables sounds familiar
(on the Mac server I've got going now, it used ipfw)
(before the script broke)
(and i was too lazy to fix it because my password is just that good)
erm.. how's the handling of SCSI in CentOS?
i got this server free and it comes with SCSI drives in a RAID 0
ed_mann
mechcozom: http://arctechnologies.net/solutions/comm_maia.php
mechcozmo
ed_mann: thanks
ed_mann
link on the page for the document. You want 1.5 squirrelmail
mechcozmo
thanks
i see it
but first, figuring out how i want my hardware
ed_mann
http://arctechnologies.net/solutions/docs/system_tools_security.pdf
you want section 1.6.2
this doc did not get cleaned up at all. It's a mess.
but it tells about pam_tally
that will lock out accounts if they try the wrong password to many times.
mechcozmo
if i have too much trouble, i'll assume that I can find you here
ed_mann
ya
mechcozmo
or just bite the bullet and read the doc
ed_mann
it may be spotty. seeing that i do quite a few of these, i may have left something out.
systems that is
mechcozmo
you think a PIII 1GHz with 512MB ECC RAM would be good for handling a small home network?
ed_mann
heck ya
i have a 300Mhz with 128MB running a webserver
and it was doing e-mail and dns before i got a new one.
:-D
mechcozmo
hey, what can i say, leftovers and good :)
ed_mann
when i worked for a big company they gave me a 75Mhz to run there dns servers.
mechcozmo
i think i'll save the overclocking for later :p
ed_mann
that was funny.
that hardware was about as old as i am.
jk
i'm 30
but it was close.
mechcozmo
what did they expect from it?
ed_mann
5 9's
sub millisecond response on full load.
glad it had linux on it, or it would have died.
mechcozmo
too bad you forgot your pixie dust that day, eh?
ed_mann
ya
mechcozmo
i'm gonna check out the SCSI situation and the space available
ed_mann
cool
mechcozmo
i'd want at least 40GB after the OS install
but i think these SCSIs are going to be less than 10
(they have drive coolers and everything-- this is a nice box)
ed_mann
nice
mechcozmo
integrated gfx tho, and i think one of the IDE channels is dead
there's an ATA/100 PCI card
will CentOS handle it?
ed_mann
what brand?
i cannot say for sure.
mechcozmo
hmmm
PROMIS
PROMIS ATA/100
back in a few minutes-- real life is interfering
ed_mann
it should work, but i cannot say
