why does open vpn start with this command
systemctl start openvpn@server.service
i woudl expect it to be like other programs ....systemctl start openvpn.service
TrevorH
you can have more than one
eb0t

ah ..so that is to start a particular instance..

why does my host use centos 6.5
DiscordianUK
Because you haven't updated it centos 6.6
TrevorH
yum update
         

DiscordianUK
Indeed
theskillwithin
haha I think I might get in trouble if I SSH in and just upgrade it myself
DiscordianUK
Then you better ask your host provider

Quick question, why does centos 7 netinstall do this on Vmware ESXi 5.5 ? http://i.imgur.com/5edzpSO.png
TrevorH
because the screen that vmware emulates isn't capable of a decent resolution?
moke
TrevorH, found a possible solution, adding xdriver=vmware vga=773

hello im trying to downgrade a package but im having problems. i do yum --showduplicates list monodevelop | expand
then i see
Available Packages
monodevelop.noarch 5.5.0.227-0 download.mono-project.com_repo_centos_
so i do
yum downgrade monodevelop.noarch-5.9.0.431-2
DiscordianUK
That doesn't look like a centos repo
bdonnahue
but it errors saying
No Match for available package: monodevelop-5.9.0.431-2.noarch
its the monodevelop repo listed on their site
http://www.mono-project.com/docs/getting-started/install/linux/#centos-fedora-and-derivatives
DiscordianUK
Not one that I think the CentOS project supports
@repos
centbot
Additional packages are often in 3rd party repos. Information on additional CentOS repos is available at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories Pay attention to the reference on yum-priorities.
bdonnahue
DiscordianUK: i dont understand can you explain what you mean
DiscordianUK
read the url please
bdonnahue
reading
i read the url but i still dont understand what you're saying. are you saying the mono repo is broken and i cannot downgrade?
DiscordianUK
I'm saying you should ask them
as it isn't supported by centos
it is also not supported by fedora
bdonnahue
i asked in #mono but im not sure if ill get a response. any idea what the error message im seeing means?
uid1
bdonnahue: Did you try simply: yum downgrade monodevelop ?
bdonnahue
yea it gives a similar error message as noted before
uid1
ah, I see. It does seem that some value between the last suggestion and the full package name ought to work. I'd try a couple more permutations. Other than that, can't really help, sorry. (@ bdonnahue)
Braden`
Hello
I am getting the error: "552 5.3.4 Error: message file too big" I am trying to send a 21 MB e-mail and the max_message_size is set to 25000000. That should be big enough to send the file. What else can I check? I am using CentOS 7 with Postfix.

Braden`: it's probably base64 encoded, which has 33% overhead
pj
Braden`: can you show the full log entries for that message in a pastebin, please?
instead of just a small snippet of what you think is relevant
also don't ask the same question in multiple channels, that is rude.

hello, i'd like to install centos with this kind of partitioning, is it possible? sda1: /boot, sdb: lvm, without a partition on sdb, just use the whole disk as a pv.
i've seen this kind of setup, but unfortunately I didnt find out, how they did it.
kaos01
not sure if you can do it in installer but yes you can from command line
curious why do you want to create it on raw disk instead of partition ?

I have Centos 7. I would like to schedule a cron job to check a file regularly. I have different commands in each line of that file. The script should run every hour and should execute first line on the first time and second line on the second time it checks etc. Is this possible?
kaos01
yes it is
althouhg its more a scripting question
kichuku
kaos01: Could you please offer some tips on how it can be done?
kaos01
what language you using ?
kichuku
kaos01: That file will only contain shell commands
Like for example instruction to upload a file to a server
But each line of the file will have modifications, and these modifications cannot be automated.
So I will put all the command manually in that file. And these has to be executed one by one with time delay.
kaos01
what language you using to write this ?
also whay are you even doing this ?
kichuku
I thought maybe it is possible using shell scripting?
kaos01
how are you putting the commands in the file ?
anyhow what is your problem ?
kichuku
The reason is - I have a LOT of files that I would like to upload. Each file is huge. And there are some parameters that needs to be changed for each file before the upload. I cannot do the upload of all the files simultaneously. So I want to automate it.
kaos01
sounds a bit odd to run commands from a file liek you want to
kichuku
commands are nothing but instructions to upload specific files.
kaos01
so why even cron it ?
cant you just loop thorugh urls and download them one by one ?
or curl/wget might even have a option to pass it a file with urls
kichuku
kaos01: It is not downloading. it is uploading.

The #centos-social channel is available for general chit-chat and topics that are not directly related to CentOS or which are off-topic in #centos. We appreciate your assistance in keeping the main #centos channel as topical as possible.

ok TrevorH

I think you want ##bash

hey, is there an equivalent to Fedora's generic-logos and generic-release packages that can be used for debranding CentOS?
Evolution
Pharaoh_Atem: no, not really. since the changes are all in git, it shouldn't be too difficult to sort out though.
TrevorH
there are centos-logos and centos-release packages
Pharaoh_Atem
Evolution: doesn't look like it
it looks it was imported after the modifications were made
Evolution
Pharaoh_Atem: the initial import and modification checkins are separate, they're just done at the same time.
you can separate them.

hello. im trying to mount an nfs share on centos 7 with mount -t nfs
im getting the following error
mount: can't find 10.4.2.104:/luks in /etc/fstab
AndyCap
bdonnahue: mount -t nfs isn't really a complete command
Johne
having issues with tcllib and eggdrop. any ideas?
apparently the tcllib package is in EPEL 6 for CentOS 6 but the package isn't in EPEL 7 for CentOS 7
bdonnahue
mount -t nfs 10.4.2.104:/luks
AndyCap
bdonnahue: and you have no mountpoint specified
bdonnahue
