hey anyone know if there is a zd1211 driver that i can install by yum on 4.4?
also if anyone know how to stop the pc hanging if i knock out the RTL8150 usb network card?
[domon]
if i'm doing a cp -R and i want to ignore files that already exist...
ec
sec*
k
got it
nvm
Carlisle
domon: you can also use rsync
flakrat
is there a way to prevent users from mounting an NFS export from a particular server? I'm reluctant to modify the servers /etc/exports file and would rather set up a rule on the client machine that just prevents mounting shares from the server
bish0p
that is backwards
flakrat
yeah, I know :-)
[domon]
hmmz
'tis just hanging =(
rsync preserves permissions and everything, right?
flakrat
hmm, maybe I could modify /etc/hosts.deny on the server and add the client machine to it, preventing portmap: ip.address
alleycat
flakrat: iptables ?
[domon]: rsync does preserve permissions and everything if properly invoked, yes
         

bish0p
yeah, limit iptables to only the servers you want to have mount it
[domon]
ok, cp -RP to preserve the properties right?
(not gonna use rsync)
flakrat
good point
[domon]
hmmm
it's just hanging...T_T
ahhh k now it's going lolz
bish0p
[domon]: why not rsync?
[domon]
personal preference i suppose
Lawbringer
anyone know if there is a zd1211 driver that i can install by yum on 4.4?
torbjorn
yum search for it?
Lawbringer
no luck
i saw a different distro where is was listed as kernel-modules-zd1211-random other stuff
so wondered if it might be having issues picking it up
pbjr
is it possible to run centos without SE linux in such a way that no trace of the latter is left?
orc_orc
pbjr: centos 3, 2,1 are blissfully ignorant of SELinux ;)
pbjr
it would be funny (in a paraniod way) if SELinux was a codename for Virtual Machine
hi Law
alleycat
pbjr: run a non selinux enabled kernel, or boot with selinux disabled
directly from grub
pbjr
I do, but it seems there is no way to not install it. Either way, I'm not concerned, it just gave me some problems.

flakrat - you should only modify the iptables on the server, not the clients. Of course, this will mean much less work, but also it is the secure way of doing it
Rappermas
ok, i think my n00b side has kicked in again, how do i start mysqld? This is a fresh install
hal2385612
service mysqld start
chkconfig --list | grep mysqld
chkconfig mysqld on
Rappermas
hmmm
mysqld: unrecognized service
hal2385612
rpm -qa | grep mysql
range
Then you didn't install mysql-server.
         

Rappermas
you know, that's probably what it is
i'll slap it on with yum
because my rpm database only has mysql-4.1.20-1.RHEL4.1
funny, because I selected it as something to install during the installation process
devhen
yum install mysql-server
Rappermas
but....does it come on the server cd or do i need the full cd?
yeah, yum is installing it already
devhen
should be on the server cd
Rappermas
i used the server cd and checked mysql--i remember
ok mysqld is running
thanks
hal2385612
does anyone know how to run yum to include packages that have been excluded using yum.conf?
ie - on the command line
kal-
Could someone help me with a hardware issue?

Hello everyone. I am running a CentOS 4.4 version server of which I would like to have Windows XP OS computers map a network drive for disk space on the hard drive within the CentOS server. How is this done?
hal2385612
kujax -use samba
kal-
I am running CentOS 4.4 with an ATI Radeon 9800XT and when I fire up quake3 i get an openGL error message about no hardware acceleration... Anyone know why that might be?
KuJaX
hal2385612 - Thank you, I have heard of Samba but have never used it. Is there a linux command I can type to see if Samba is currently running? Or a Web GUI that I can connect to to enable/setup Samba easily?
hal2385612
let's move to #samba
as this is too off topic I think
Rappermas
is there a way to install phpmyadmin through yum or does that package not exist?
Hydr0p0nX
phpmyadmin is just a tar.gz of the phpmyadmin app and should be untarred in your web directory
hal2385612
kujax?
Rappermas
works for me
on fedora and ubuntu, there's packages
Hydr0p0nX
it will create a directory (with tar -xvzf) and you will need to modify the config.inc (or config.inc.php)
hal2385612
kugax? I can help you, but as soon as my kernel finishes I must go. are you going to go to the #samba room?
k-y
kal-: you dont run CentOS for games
KuJaX
hal2385612 = in there
kal-
:(
k-y
recommend FC5 for games
kal-
i have never used fedora
I know it can work on Centos
hal2385612
kal - have you read this? http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man4/radeon.4.html
make sure you have the right driver installed
Evolution
Rappermas: phpmyadmin isn't packaged because it moves too rapidly in the development cycle, doesn't easily upgrade, and has a horrible security track-record.
hal2385612
although that one may not be the best, it may give you an idea about the options available. There is one for accel
Evolution
other than that it's a decent product
Rappermas
Evolution: that makes sense
torbjorn
what service in chkconfig do i need to turn on to do daily updatedb's?
oh its in updatedb.conf ?
KuJaX
hal, got samba yum's :)
alleycat
torbjorn: it's not in chkconfig. it's a daily script placed in /etc/crond.daily/slocate.cron
*cron.daily
Treeform
i am sorry for sounding stupid but how many CD's does centos come on?
i see bin10f4 ... then live cd and server cd
so_
Treeform, choose the 1to4 set or the ServerCD
Treeform
ServerCD is just one so i think its a better option what is the difference between the 1to4?
so_
The servercd contains everthing to to a server install, 1to4 contains everything, desktop apps, etc etc
jbt
ServerCD has the base and mostly for server installation option, good choice if you need for server indeed
Treeform
3 cd's of descrop apps that is a lot :). Well i am going with the server thanks a lot :)
jimmy20013
Treeform: You can setup a desktop with only 2. Just don't add any extra packages

Hi Guys.. can someone give me a hand with connecting to a WPA-PSK network? I am trying to do this with iwconfig with no success.. I have tried the following: 'iwconfig rausb0 essid <essid>', 'iwconfig rausb0 key s:<passphrase>', 'dhclient' .. dhclient basically sits there for ages and keep retrying, not accepting the IP Address...
jimmy20013
joobie: Can you connect to the network when its not encrypted?
joobie
jimmy20013, i haven't tried.. though i can connect to the network from a windows machine using the same essid / passphrase
jimmy20013
joobie: Yeah but this is a linux box. Open up the network and see if you can connect with your linux box
jsoft_
Is it bad to use centos plus on production systems?
jimmy20013
jsoft:no
Kal
hal2385612, I set Option "NoAccel" "FALSE" but still same problem. Any suggestions?
jsoft_
hmm ok.
FuzzyB
was centos-yumconf-4-4.5.noarch.rpm removed when cent went from 4.3 to 4.4?
Treeform
does centos require a swap?
joobie
no
ugarit
how does one setup timezone via the CLI?
Kal
How can I download my kernel-source files
Treeform
this is my setup stupid windows on some of the system then one big ext3 for the rest will that work?
ugarit
are there going to be any patches for day light savings time zone conversions due to the USA's change to March 11th instead of April?
hal2385612
Kal - Edit /etc/yum.conf to temporarily change the exlude directive to include kernel-devel
yum list | grep kernel (see what you want) - you will need kernel-devel
yum install kernel-devel
reenable excludes in yum.conf
ugarit
how does one setup timezone via the CLI?
Kal
ok thx
i think I need to install new driver from ati.com which requires recompiling the kernel :\
jimmy20013
Treeform: If you have 4GB memory then I would say no but anything less would definitely benefit from a swap and save you crashes
hal2385612
hi again - does anyone know if the following errors are just SELinux warning that if it was fully enabled, it would deny access to files, or is something actually being denied access now?
audit(1170633661.749:119): avc: denied { append } for pid=11068 comm="httpd" name="error_log"
dev=md4 ino...: 1 Time(s)
so_
sounds like selinux yes
hal2385612
so_ > so nothing is being denied then?
secondly, I have installed drivers zaptel 1.4 - but now I need to install zaptel 1.2 instead. Can I just install zaptel 1.2 over the top, or do I have to remove all the changes?
can anyone offer me some advice, please?
wyleyrabbit
hal2385612, on what?
or do I get to pick?
hal2385612
hi wyle
wyleyrabbit
hi
hal2385612
do you know, I have installed drivers zaptel 1.4 - but now I need to install zaptel 1.2 instead. Can I just install zaptel 1.2 over the top, or do I have to remove all the changes that 1.4 made? BTW, I installed form source
wyleyrabbit
first, were there no RPMs to install from?
hal2385612
no there weren't
wyleyrabbit
did you have to do "make install" to make them work?
hal2385612
yes
wyleyrabbit
you can likely do a "make deinstall" or possibly "make uninstall" and it will un-do the installation
hal2385612
not ehre isn't
no there isn't, I'm afraid
wyleyrabbit
hmmm. strange. well, you could just look through the make file to see where it put stuff
that said, you might be just fine installing the older drivers over top of the newer ones
hal2385612
ok, I will do a make -n install
thank you
wyleyrabbit
good luck
hal2385612
thx!
:-)
