Dyson
is 'Recieved disconnect from ::ffff:a.b.c.d: xx: Bye Bye' an error message or is such a message always produced when quitting an ssh-session?
kee-un
Dyson: normal
Dyson
ok, then i won't include that in the fail2ban regex :)
kee-un
Dyson: I just meant it wasn't an error message
Dyson
kee-un: yep
kee-un
I have seen that with people scanning machines for the SSH version
Dyson
hmm...
does it also occur with normal operation?
maybe it would be wiser to match on that string, too
kee-un
Dyson: depends on the client I would say
Dyson
hrm...
         

kee-un
I don't see that when using openssh though.
Dyson
i think i'll enable it and see what happens
linuxer
hello, I would like to ask - how to fix yum for 32bit userland on 64bit kernel? in other words - how to force yum to install 32bit only packages?
so_
linuxer, exclude= in yum.conf probably *.x86_64
that's not going to work 100% since you need things like glibc to update, but it's a start
donavan
install 32bit centos on the box, that exclude is asking for security holes
Chairos
orc_orc: memtest's made 9 passes so far without detecting any errors.
linuxer
so_> problem is ... that I have functional centos4.4 image being run under 64bit kernel and when I run yum install smthing - exactly openssl - it would like to download 64bit version...
donavan
what makes you think you want the 32bit version?
orc_orc
Chairos: unitl a box runs 24 hours, buttoned up and at operating temp, I do not consider the ram qualified
Chairos
fair enough
orc_orc
Chairos: also call center techs at Dell know memtest86 and respect its findings
linuxer
donavan> I have 64bit xen dom0....and would like to run 32bit guest system - I just downloaded ready centos4.4 image and started it with 64bit guest kernel...everything good untill i tried install something....
Evolution
linuxer: if you want to run the 32bit OS, then don't run it with a 64bit guest kernel.
that's the issue.
you can't have a 64bit kernel with only 32bit binaries and libs. that's just *asking* for a painful experience.
linuxer
Evolution> i justa came across the problem....just openssl...was already installed and when i tried to install it once again...i wanted to upgrade to x86_64 ... now I see I have it already installed ...so I can proceed smoothly :
Chairos
regarding the hardware compatibility lists at redhat: some systems are listed as certified for RHEL4-QU3. Am I right that that's something like "quarterly update 3"? and if so, does that correspond to any particular centos release?
smooge
Centos-4.4
4.3
sorry
Chairos
ah, so the point release corresponds to redhat's QU release? excellent
aussieaubs
does anyone have any tips for mounting novell shares under centos?? or where I begin??
seanos_
I believe there is some novell client ... I tried it on FC3 many a day ago, with painful success
Evolution
aussieaubs: there's a very recent thread on the mailing list about this.
         

aussieaubs
nice thanks
seanos_
I believe I purged rest of thoughts from my memory in regard to novell/linux, but I do recall seeing something about later versions of client being less painful
Evolution
yeah, version 6 has a reasonably easy way to do this via nfs/samba
the earlier versions require ncpfs, which sucks, isn't supported unless you load the centosplus kernel, and sucks
did I mention it sucks?
aussieaubs
thanks evolution and seanos - is the mailing list at centos.org??

thanks seanos
pulpficti0n
when i update yum will it overwrite my yum.conf?
Evolution
pulpficti0n: how are you updating it?
pulpficti0n
yum update yum
Evolution
no. that should work fine.
overseer
I just was told by Dell spare parts that they don't sell hot-swap drive sleds separate from drives anymore. WTF? do i have to go thru a 3rd party retailer now to get them? anyone have any tricks to share?
lancelan
overseer, ebay ??
overseer
that's jacked
i used to be able to order them for $12/ea :)
pulpficti0n
how does this installonlypkgs option from yum work?
i don't have the kernel* listed on my yum.conf and they're still not getting updated (but are being installing)
installed*
not sure if i'm being clear..
my yum.conf doesn't have a intallonlypkgs=kernel, and kernel isn't being replaced when i yum update
i'd like to know if i need to add this intallonlypkgs=kernel to my yum.conf at my production server
Evolution
pulpficti0n: what is the output of 'uname -a' ?
pulpficti0n
Linux servidor1.datazero.net 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Oct 6 06:21:39 CDT 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Evolution
that is the most recent kernel for centos.
centos 4 will always have a version of 2.6.9-x until it dies.
pulpficti0n
ok, but my question is more in general.. i'm worried about future updates
i read on the man yum.conf that installonlypkgs has default for some kernel packages, but i didn't see them on my yum.conf
i wonder if it's a default hardcoded
Evolution
you should have the kernel marked as install only.
if yours is not, then you or your provider has modified yum.
I don't believe it is hardcoded, but replacing the kernel is a bad idea.
if you replace the kernel, and the new one doesn't boot then you're pretty much screwed.
pulpficti0n
yeah, that's probably the case.. can you paste your installonlypkgs directive?
Evolution
nope. I obey the topic :-P
pulpficti0n
but i'm asking :)
1 line MAX
Evolution
what do the files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ tell you?
have you considered looking at what they tell you?
pulpficti0n
nothing, i checked them already
there're just the base, media and my providers repositories
Evolution
hmmm. I don't see it defined in mine either come to think of it.
Buck
where can I specify commands to run at the server startup/boot ?
Evolution
Buck: depends on the command.
Buck
unreal ircd server
Evolution
Buck: hopefully they provided you with a chkconfig aware script for install.
Buck
:x
unreal did you mean?
Evolution
in which case, /etc/init.d/ and then use chkconfig
Buck: where-ever you got that security nightmare/'root exploit waiting to happen'
Buck
I'm just looking to find out how to start it at bootup
Evolution
right. I'm certain there's documentation.
Buck: not to be rude, but irc servers are horribly insecure and usually very easily compromised.
Buck
I don't really care much for your opinion
Evolution
if you're not familiar enough with linux to know how to use chkconfig, or rc.local, or the documentation which comes with the software you're using, then I fear for the safety of your server, and the unsuspecting users on it.
Buck
now you are being rude
Evolution
nope. being honest. blunt, but honest. irc daemons are large vectors for infection.
Buck
you can be honest, blunt and rude at the same time
Evolution
excellent! I'm *multi-tasking* !!!!!111eleventy!!!111
pulpficti0n
Evolution, and are your kernels being updated or installed?
Evolution
pulpficti0n: installed.
Buck
I think it's better if I put you on ignore for now
pulpficti0n
Evolution, so should i just leave that directive off my yum.conf? :)
Evolution
Buck: you're welcome to do that, but my points still stand. chkconfig is still what you should use. the server likely has a sample script. and you've not yet read the directions (or you'd know about the sample script)
pulpficti0n: http://rafb.net/p/3cYM2k85.html
with the exception of the commented gaim exclude, that should be pretty much default.
pulpficti0n
i see you define plugins path but still they're disabled :)
but ok, it's pretty much similar to min
mine*
Evolution
yeah. this is my test box, so they're off/on
pulpficti0n
i was just worried about that kernel thing
oh Evolution
any idea why my provider set distroverpkg=redhat-release even though i'm running centos?
saltmiser
has anybody managed to get madwifi-0.9.2.1-2 to compile in centos 4.4?
Evolution
pulpficti0n: no clue why they did that.
pulpficti0n
ok, thanks mate
