is there any way from 6.7 dvd1 to create a gpt label for a disk once you hit the point where you're creating a partition and it tells you you need a gpt label to continue?
kbsingh
bassgoon: if you init the disk in the installer, it should do that for you
bassgoon
hmmm, perhaps I'm doing it wrong
kbsingh
if not, you can switch to the console, use parted to mklabel and switch back and goto the disk config screen
bassgoon
I'm picking manual layout
switch to the console...I feel silly now
how do you do that again
kbsingh
alt+ctrl+f2
from the gui installer
bassgoon
crap, i'm on a network kvm and I don't think something is eating my input locally
ah there it is, found a work around
fantastic
and which one is the gui on then, f1?
tigalch
try f7 or something in that range i think
shivaya
hi, does anyone know if it's possible to compare two files who don't necessarirly have same order of lines inside the file?
         

bassgoon
ah it was f6
orionp
shivaya: sort them first?
Evan_Donovan
does yum do security updates on packages automatically on CentOS 5?
also are security fixes still being backported into CentOS 5's version of openssl (0.9.8)?
bekks
Evan_Donovan: Depends on the repos you configured.
Zathrus
Evan_Donovan: only critical ones.
EL5 is in phase 3; it's all but dead.
Evan_Donovan
Zathrus: yes, i have switched to CentOS 7 on another server. but i have an older server that i still have to maintain for a while.
majuscule
How can I check what packages were explicitly installed w/ yum? (not including dependencies automatically installed)
KobrAs
majuscule: check /var/log/yum.log
majuscule
that doesn't give that information for me. but i found the solution with `yumdb search command_line "*install*"`
Pinchiukas
Anybody have a CentOS 5 machine around? I need to find out what package includes /lib/udev/write_net_rules.
sekhmet
Pinchiukas: Are you aware of "yum provides" ?
Bahhumbug
Nothing provides it.
sekhmet
(heh, was about to mention that that doesn't seem available on el5 anyway)
Pinchiukas
That's why I'm looking into this...
How do I generate persistent net rules on el5 anyway?
sdgathman
bind-9.3.6-25.P1.el5_11.2 won't listen on IPv6:
Oct 1 14:57:50 sea0 named[24993]: no IPv6 interfaces found
How do I fix this? Yes, there are IPv6 interfaces, including in the /var/named/chroot/proc/net/if_ipv6

I want to setup a 10x5TB raid 6 - what do you guys recommend for card, drives, and enclosure if i go with SATA for the cheap storage (im likely going to use mdadm unless theres a very good reason not to, so hardware raid isnt that important to me - just need reliability)
sdgathman
Another EL5 machine with same bind version works fine.
I am mystified.
Pinchiukas
You are pwned.
Check integrity of your packages.

anyone know how to adjust the brighness on laptops? the menu from the settings doesnt work. i can lower or raise it and nothing changes it
centos 7
im trying everything and nothing seems to work. whats weird is it seemed much brighter the other day
aaro
try xbacklight
         

blasson
Tried to install it
No package xbacklight available.
Error: Nothing to do
billings
iirc I had to echo some number to a file in /sys for my laptop until I upgraded to f22
blasson
back sorry
i tried to play with other settings and nope lol
okay i figured it out.. but why is it the "intel" one?
echo 1583660 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
echo 1583660 > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_backlight/brightness
okay now that i figured it out, how can i make a shell script to execute to adjust the brightness for me for when im plugged in and on battery? i can just type ./power to run 'echo 2083660 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness' and ./battery to run 'echo 1000000 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness'
fenrus02
you've seen https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7-Beta/html/Power_Management_Guide/Audit_and_Analysis.html already ?
blasson
sure did not. ill check that out right now
fenrus02
iirc, acpid has scripts for ac/battery runs too.
blasson
pumped up, now all i have to do is type ./battery to dim and ./power to brighten :)
You can tell im a noob when i get excited to get that on my own haha
fenrus02
forward progress is still better than stagnation.
blasson
true
did some reading on $PATH and learned i can put the bash scripts i made to /home/$user/bin and just run the command without ./
sdgathman
Solved: /etc/sysconfig/named disables IPv6 by default
