gnu_linux_geek2 : if you know that's an acpi issue, i guess you've already tried with acpi=off ?
gnu_linux_geek2
well I disabled ACPI in the BIOS and everything seems to work but I cannot shutdown -hf now and have the machines power off -- I would have thought good old APM would power them off
when not using ACPI
StevenR
have you loaded the apm module, if required?
gnu_linux_geek2
I think so, but perhaps I overlooked it
going to double check
isn't APM enabled in the kernel by default?
under power management the only options are legacy power mgt API and ACPI effectively
Evolution
why not use the nforce drivers
although swapping out kernels randomly isn't the best method of troubleshooting usually
Arrfab
Evolution : nforce drivers ?
gnu_linux_geek2
Evolution: I have not been swapping kernels at random I have tried several kernels which are available for 4.4 and one custom one
Evolution
Arrfab: yep -> http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.21.html
gnu_linux_geek2
Evolution: I have not tried the nForce drivers, I may try them just in case, but is that really going to correct my ACPI issue?
         

Evolution
using software written by the vendor designed for the hardware you're running?
yes. I think it might.
Arrfab
Evolution : i know they exist but what this has to do with acpi ?
Evolution
I just think he's getting poor hardware support because he's using generic drivers
Arrfab
Evolution : and nforce drivers don't work all the time : i have a newer box on which i tried to use nforce drivers on centos but it was not working ... on the other hand fc6 runs perfect ...
Evolution
right. but if his system already has issues, trying them won't hurt anything
it's not like his system will rise against him and eat his dog.
Arrfab
(Action) agrees ...
gnu_linux_geek2 : already tried a bios update at least ?
gnu_linux_geek2
Arrfab: yes I did
Arrfab
gnu_linux_geek2 : so try Evolution's suggestion : anyway you have nothing to lose ..
gnu_linux_geek2
I somehow got it to ACPI power down in 2.6.9-46.EL 2.6.16.29 and 2.6.19.2
now I suppose the only question is how stable is it going to be running 2.6.9-46.EL
or my custom kernels
thank you all for your help :-) I have to go destroy some more PCs, cya later

Hello. Once RHEL5 is released, how long will it take for CentOS to release an os compatible with it?
LeddyHM
centos5

LeddyHM

Munchkinguy
Well, I'm impressed. Bye.

RadSurfer: Human Interface Device (HID)
RadSurfer
Where can I learn more about that please?
i did try google
Lazydog
http://www.google.com/linux?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=HID&btnG=Search
hmmm there is no wine in centos repos to be installed?
Evolution
Lazydog: it's not in the base repository, but it's in the 3rd party repos
see the wiki for the repo list
Lazydog
Evolution: thnx.
Ilovemypuppy
Evolution, youre here!
Evolution
LIES!
Ilovemypuppy
will you please tell me if I got smf setr up right? I disabled registration
http://www.frattofannetwork.com
my ex in france says its just coming up plain with no artwork
Evolution
yeah. your theme is screwed.
one sec
Ilovemypuppy
thats so screwed, I'll set it to default, why is it doing that?
Evolution
I'd guess because you stood it up with a different hostname than www.frattofannetwork.com
you probably used localhost or some other internal hostname.
if so, there's a reasonably easy fix.
Ilovemypuppy
please tell me
and yes, I did that, the URL is pointed to my no-ip from godaddy.com
should I just run the install.php again?
Evolution
you can if you haven't put too much effort into setting it up
Ilovemypuppy
I haven't really
changed a few options but I set everything back to the core default settings now
Evolution
then yeah. nuke that install recreate the db, and use the proper (www.frattofannetwork.com) hostname.
Ilovemypuppy
ok, because I tried putting the right URL into the theme list, and now everything is white
Evolution
it's also stored in the db
so you have to dump the db, sed out the values and reload the db
Ilovemypuppy
how do I clear out mysql - just delete the old database?
crap I forgot the command
Evolution
mysqldump -Q yourdb > yourdb.sql
then drop database yourdb
then create database yourdb
then change out all the wrong values in yourdb.sql
then mysql yourdb < yourdb.sql

Hi iam using CentOS release 4.4
using system-config-language iam not able to change the system language as it only shows turkish...
i want to chage it to english... how should i go about
Ilovemypuppy
whoah i dont know how to change anything in mysql, I just created a brand new one
Evolution , on http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=5 it says I gotta change the permission on some dir's , should i be doing this recursively
Evolution
gan0713: did you install english during the install?
raf256
hello people :)
I am in need of 5-10 ppl that know/use centos and have 3 minutes to help me (and a bit the linux comminuty)
Evolution
Ilovemypuppy: yes. most likely
gan0713
Hii Evolution yes locale-list on system-config-language has all that
Evolution
raf256: if you're conducting a survey, feel free to move along or take it to the social channel
gan0713: you can always set /etc/sysconfig/i18n to the appropriate language
raf256
Evolution: actually I am exacly doing an survey, as a www form of course (not "on irc")
Evolution: but I need input specially from centos (and redhat) users
Evolution
which is why I pointed you to the social channel instead of here.
raf256
I didnt yet find a centos user :/
Evolution
people go there to chat & share ideas. they come here for help, or to help others.
in #centos-social you haven't found a single centos user? I do not believe you.
raf256
thanks, I will try that as well, although if anyone here have 3 minutes to look at my lionk it would vbe nive
oh centos-social... ok then
Ilovemypuppy
Evolution, I did it and its still coming up white. How can I fix the damn theme?
Evolution
Ilovemypuppy: Ilovemypuppy it's still coming up with your no-ip information
it would seem you have made the same error.
Ilovemypuppy
sigh, I dont it not to do that. How can I fix it? this is really irritating
no, I didnt
I put in the real url to it
and ita just white and sh*tty
Evolution
Ilovemypuppy: grep -ri no-ip /var/www/html/*
does that return any result?
Ilovemypuppy
grep: /var/www/html/: No such file or directory
im in /var/www
Evolution
huh?
where are the files for smf then?
Ilovemypuppy
there is no www/html
in /var/www
Evolution
why the hell did you do that?
centos defaults to /var/www/html
Ilovemypuppy
because that is the default directory that apache serves up
ok
thanks anyhow. I give up.
Evolution
Ilovemypuppy: are you using centos, or some 3rd party VPS?
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrr
bobnn
Ilovemypuppy - sounds like you've been philandering with Debian ;-D
oops
Evolution
I'm so filled with rage at that jackass I can't see straight
bobnn
well, you chased him away - he left *fast*
Evolution
you mean once he thought I was onto him not using centos ?
that's why I'm mad.
bobnn
yep.
Evolution
getting help in here is fine, so long as it's on the proper OS
bobnn
hey you're in Goergia right?
Evolution
yep.
bobnn
well, I'm in Chicago - -6 F, -19 windchill.
so be glad you're there, dammit!
jk
Evolution
oh I am.
I was in ohio last week, and I've got friends in Chicago.
bobnn: if it makes you feel any better, I actually had to wear a long sleeve shirt today
bobnn
I can see why yer annoyed, you spent like 40 minutes with that guy.
Evolution
what with it only getting up to around 53F today and all
bobnn
Evo - my heart bleeds fo you having to be so cold.
Evolution
I used to have an ice scraper for my windsheild when I lived in Ohio... it's been taking up space in my closet down here
and I occasionally get mocked for hanging onto it.
range
We still have 37F here, normal would be something around -10°C at this time of year.
bobnn
hey you never know - NC got nailed.
range
gan0713: What?
gan0713
Hi range using system-config-language iam not able to change the system language as it only shows turkish...
