alphaser, hi
mechcozmo
ed_mann: got something you'll enjoy
this 100GB drive is now dying
it is recognized but refuses to boot
question for everyone: how do i transfer my data from one drive to another?
i really don't want to re-install and re-configure what's already been done
alphaser
bye
mechcozmo
z00dax: hey, last night you said something about transferring LVM stuff from one drive to another... any chance that'd work going to a smaller drive too?
miah
man tar
mechcozmo
?
miah
tar can easily help you move to a new drive
and so can dump
the only think you hve to do is recreate your partitions, and rewrite the bootloader to the mbr of the new disk
w1z3r
hi all
how can I make my centos system to know a domain's MX record is itself ?
range
By configuring your name service and your mailserver correctly.
mechcozmo
question... is there a good GUI to configure almost everything?
like, no need to hack .conf files or anything
just point-and-click
(or even CLI that modifies the files for me)
range
No, not really. There are some system-config-foo programs who do that, but they don't do "everything":
mechcozmo
mmm
yeah, i'm just getting tired of trying to remember all the different things i have to set up to get even relatively simple stuff to work
well
sort of simple
leonel

leonel
good pony good pony
pony
yes, I'm a good pony, thank you leonel, could I stomp Zathrus to show my appreciation?
qsub
I kind of messed around with my sound preferences. now i have completely no sound. Is there a config file I can automatically delete so it regenerates a new one or anything?
DaveNotik
:) Linux newbie. How do I check a) what MTA is in use, b) what's happening with an e-mail my PHP script should have generated? (CentOS, H-Sphere)
         

jbt
DaveNotik: nmap ?
DaveNotik
jbt: That a command?
overseer
take a gander at /var/log/maillog
jbt
DaveNotik: don't mind it, it doesn't give the MTA btw, default MTA is sendmail
DaveNotik
So how on earth do I find out the MTA in use on my box?
Linux is unnecessarily complex, and I know that's an unsavory thing to say here.
bronze_0_1
DaveNotik: and its much less complex than windows, by at least on order of magnitude (count # of API calls)
NetGangsta
Hi, there how can i setup a identd for my psybnc , eggdrop on my vps?
DaveNotik
overseer: Thanks, guess it's qmail.
NetGangsta
its oidentd?
jbt
uname -r would spit the kernel version?
NetGangsta
Hi, there how can i setup a identd for my psybnc , eggdrop on my vps?
lancelan
NetGangsta, are those a part of CentOS ??
NetGangsta
yum install python dont work?
lancelan
NetGangsta, python will usually be already installed
jbt, usually
NetGangsta
bash: ./fauxident.py: /usr/local/bin/python: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
...
lancelan
NetGangsta, since when did python ever live there ??
what distro is this ??
NetGangsta
but fauxident suck I need a ident server for CentOS
no one can hook me up?
with a identd server for CentOS?
ed_mann
NetGangsta: let me look
NetGangsta, did you try yum provides?
Evolution
haHA
I have RAM!
joobie
anyone know how long the RHCE cert is valid for? I did mine with RHEL3.. when v5 comes out, do i have to resit or is that with v6?
Evolution
joobie: with v5 I believe.
joobie
doh
thanks Evo..
Evolution
I'm not 100% on that though
joobie
do you know when it's due out?
Evolution
I've never bothered with rhce certs.
joobie
i do IT Consulting, so it's important :/
Evolution
so do I :-P
joobie
end of the day, it's just a piece of paper
Evolution
and no, it's not, depending on the client.
but I know where you're coming from.
joobie
it does depend on the client
Evolution
last word I heard was around march
joobie
cheers evo
Evolution
but I have no idea if that's accurate.
joobie
i hope it's prolonged, so i don't have to study
evo, got a website for your consulting?
Evolution
if you're using RHEL/centos on a daily basis, you shouldn't really need to study.
joobie
I don't use it anymore daily
I use OSX
Evolution
joobie: yep. http://www.gdit.com/
joobie
wow
some big money in your contracts
i just read that 21mill quote
Evolution
I work for GDIT. they farm me out.
I've found it to be a good arrangement, because I like regular paychecks
joobie
ahh
i started my on consulting / it support business about 2 months ago
first time i gave up fulltime work in my career
it's very, different :)
Evolution
good luck. I did that a while back, but it was a PITA.
joobie
thanks.. yea there is a lot of overhead to keep in mind when you run your own business I am finding out.
Evolution
I'd rather spend all my time playing with hardware and telling people why I'm right and they're wrong.
joobie
heeh
Evolution
let someone else shuffle paper and collect the cash.
joobie
I want to reach that level too
but be paying for both the people
while im sipping on gin and juice on an island
that's the plan.
:P
Evolution
seems reasonable enough.
joobie
what technologies do you consult for Evo?
Evolution
3d simulations, networking, training and education, and web services.
joobie
what web services Evo?
just curious..
Evolution
portals, monitoring software (nagios), and educational software (to drive the 3d sims, and training packages)
joobie
ahh k
nagios is gold.
Evolution
my current contract employer likes to use the term 'knowledge management'
joobie
have you stumbled into the nagios-exchange website?
Evolution
which is a load of sh*t, but it pays the bills.
joobie
ehhe
Evolution
yeah. I use some of their patches, but mostly I go more for IT groundwork's additions, and some snmp modules.
joobie
The validity period for all RHCEs and RHCTs is pegged to the release of the Enterprise product commercially available at the time certification was earned, and certification shall be current until after one (1) major release of the Enterprise product. Certificates earned on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 will be current until the release of Red Hat Enterprise 5.
that is from the redhat site btw, for your own knowledge
ahh
Evolution
cool I guessed right.
I WIN
joobie
i have steered away from SNMP since all of those security issues years back
Evolution
(Action) gives himself a victory beer.
NetGangsta
i just back from cp eggdrop folder to another folder and now eggdrop only want start as root any know?
joobie
heeh
NetGangsta, advice #1 - don't run eggdrop as root
Evolution
NetGangsta: I'd guess because you changed the permissions when you copied it.
NetGangsta
joobie yea but read my question ...
Evolution
and this isn't really the proper place for eggdrop support.
joobie
check the config file NetGangsta, I think there are references to module locations if my memory is right
you may need to update paths.
Evolution
god I hate hard drive math....
joobie
what do you mean Evo?
Evolution
1 500G HD = 465G before formatting.
joobie
ahh
