ManiakD
some names ?
teknoprep
where do i set environment_variable ?
orc_orc
ManiakD: it depents on your needs -- there are restore of image tools, or install new image tools -- anaconda and PXE in centos-4 permit me to do rollouts with nothing but foss tools
teknoprep: export NAME="value" -- it may be made persistent in /etc/bashrc, or ~/.bashrc, or through the profiles chain of files
ManiakD
orc_orc: I'd like to control a few servers (if possible thru php API to a server or CGI) and not only to setup centos, but also fedora, debian and freebsd if possible ...
orc_orc
ManiakD: great -- and I wnat a pony
ManiakD: great -- and I want a pony
pony
orc_orc your pony: http://tinyurl.com/ms4yy
ManiakD
orc_orc: does not have to be free software
actually that's for just for a virtual project for diploma papers
orc_orc
ManiakD: this is the channel for centos matters -- I have provoded a centos answer -- beyond that you're going to have to hire me
jbartus
anybody remember how to get syslog to listen on the network in centos 4?
         

orc_orc
-r
jbartus
i edited /etc/sysconfig/syslog and added "r" to the opttions
but now a restart says FAILED
orc_orc
the option is not 'r'
ManiakD
orc_orc: I must find a solution that's the point. I heard that those system exists made by huge companies, but haven't food anything special even googeling for a while.
orc_orc
do you want my rate sheet? where will I be travelling to?
lancelan
I want your song sheet - and do come visit :)
orc_orc
smile
my singing is characterized by Mrs orc as snoring
ManiakD
Hum, can I pay with chips ? Here is Switzerland !
orc_orc
.ch sounds fine -- I have done contract database work fofr nestle in the past on certain litigation matters
ManiakD
orc_orc: Student project aren't sponsored.
orc_orc
reduced rate airfare, hotel, and meals, plus an all area ski pass, 2 weeks at the end to ski, and $1200 US perdiem
how many days in addition to the 2 wks at the end will you be needing me?
ManiakD
I think it would be cheaper to pay someone here to program it :P
orc_orc
ManiakD: oh -- I have already done the work -- here is a sample of this kind of work at: http://www.owlriver.com/tips/hands-off/ --
I probably can do it in under 10 work days -- shall we say an even 28 days?
(Action) adds ....
Leddy_tC
mmm kickstart
orc_orc
lancelan: how much for a reasonable hotel room and food perdiem in .ch?
lancelan
if there is skiing involved then you will need both of us
I am cheaper because there is no transat involved
orc_orc
I shall -- you may be my PFY on the odd numbered days, and I on the even
lancelan
hey - lets have centoscon in the alps
ManiakD
hum
orc_orc
lancelan: works4me -- I'll be in .it next summer for the sumemr event
         

lancelan
ManiakD, where in .ch ??
ManiakD
Between Bern and Lausane
*Lausanne
lancelan
nice
orc_orc
sounds fine -- we can take a train to the slopes in teh eary morning, stop to 1600, and work until mindight
lancelan
if you live there you must be able to aford to pay us :)
ManiakD
well, wait till I'll work
orc_orc
ManiakD: lancelan and I are some of the earliest counders of CentOS --we are well worth the expense
lancelan
best place I know for centoscon would be Tux in .at
orc_orc
.at would he fine -- or down in Slovenia
s/he/be/
s/counders/founders/
lancelan
flounders ??
orc_orc
sounds fishy
pony
you guys don't need the train -- I will pull a sleigh or carriage for the project
ManiakD
orc_orc: and in what will this help me ? :)
lancelan
that would be useful pony
orc_orc
ManiakD: you wanted a solution -- we have outlined a wholly centos one for you
lancelan
horse drawn ski lifts are quite nice
orc_orc
first class all the way
ManiakD: you wanted to do remote deployments with a webbish controlinterface for some custom software needs -- we will neet the needs as stated for under 100k$ US
s/neet/meet/
ManiakD
well, just for your information, since people think that we are all like rich, we don't have gold or special food, we just finish the month, as people would be doing in US
orc_orc
... we assume you have the hardware outside of tha tbudget for us of course
ManiakD: smile
no -- it was the lovely venue you get to live in which attracted lancelan and I -- the money is merely incidental -- but one must eat
.. and drink good single malt's
ManiakD
orc_orc: not so many people think so.
orc_orc: too many people run after money without enjoying the stars and the landscape
Zap-W
say having understaind and knowledge of how something works beats experience , in my opinion atleast
one can have experience of how to do some task to achive other but have no idea how it works
orc_orc
Zap-W: having done such projects for nearly 40 years helps a bit as well
teknoprep
omfg
tomcat is a pain
lol
i got it installed tho
there install doc is not very thourough
orc_orc
ManiakD: I infer you are a student of at uni?
s/of/or/
ManiakD
technical school
orc_orc
ah well, then perhaps you wil not be engaging lance and me
ManiakD: * would do test installs in a local lab, package the end product, and then practice doing the install remotely
building units remotely is trivial
ManiakD
orc_orc: I found one software, that could do all, it is called nocmonkey or something like that, but not sure that I would trust it.
orc_orc
ManiakD: yeah - a noc monkey is a person who does installs in a network Op Center
Zap-W
teknoprep: the /usr/share/docs/tomcat* blah arent good?
ManiakD
orc_orc: yes, I guess you mean that people using voip phones in DC and that press keyboard "enter, enter, next" and that push reset buttons when the reboot interface seems not working

It was some arabic.. the only translation I got was something about occupying america
slowgo
i have a question please how do you determine which of dag's repos is right for your distro if he does not list centos?
i'm using Centos 4.4 final
alleycat
slowgo: rhel4 is the suitable one
slowgo
thank you alleycat
alleycat
slowgo: as a rule of thumb: whenever you look for something and it is targeted for centos, look for rhel instead. centos 4 is compiled from the same sources as rhel4
sorry, to be read "it is NOT targeted for"
slowgo
ok cool
whats the difference in i386 and x86_64?
alleycat
x86_64 = 64bits
amd athlon64/ opteron + intel toys
but not the IA64 stuff
i386 = 32 bits processors
(or 64 bit in 32bit compatibility mode)
Mrono
I need to install C++ on my system, so i can compile ncurses
is there a copy of it in yum that i don't know about
wait.....
mmcgrath
"yum search c++" then search. Ohhhh search.
snowmoon
Mrono, 'yum groupinstall "Development Tools"' is probably what you want
Mrono
i got it, thanks
viyyer
which is the sites-available equivalent in centos apache??
xiven
Hello
Is there a known OS like CentOS, which repos are compatible?
viyyer
xiven, known OS?? what do you mean by that?
lancelan
xiven, use rhel repos - red hat enterprise linux
xiven
hmm
Any chance of system breakage with that?
viyyer
xiven, the chances are too low
xiven
Okay
viyyer
are supposed to be tooo low I should say
xiven
Well, do you have a repo list i could use?
viyyer
I have not used it
xiven
ok
Im just looking because i need svn
viyyer
xiven, there is svn in centos repos
xiven
hmm
i dcouldnt find it
viyyer
xiven, yum search subversion ??
xiven, te package name is subversion
xiven
got it. Thanks
i have a debian background :P
lancelan
yum provides svn ???
xiven
appreantly
im now using it
Is that strange?
lancelan
that would tell you which package provides it - if one does ...
xiven
heh
i notice Subversions version is a little ways behind
