/dev/null should have 0666 permission.

crw-rw-r-- 1 root utmp 1, 3 Aug 10 14:52 /dev/null
sdgathman
If you think selinux might be involved, try setenforcing 0
Jordy
dunno what utmp is
this did the job, sorry I removed it before I could read your message... "mknod -m 0666 /dev/null c 1 3"
sdgathman
Well, there is no reason any app would be messing with /dev/ permissions.
Jordy
im screwed :D
sdgathman
should be owned by root:root
Jordy
it is now
:x
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 1, 3 Aug 22 20:11 /dev/null
speaking of which
it was in read-only before?
sdgathman
Yes. Very very wrong.
         

Jordy
I wonder what could have caused that...
sdgathman
A serious bug in something (involving utmp), or a compromise.
Jordy
Private IP and not used in public so I go for the bug.

Do NOT paste in here! Use a pastebin such as http://pastebin.centos.org or http://fpaste.org for anything over one line. Pastebin services that require active content such as javascript are likely to be ignored by channel regulars.

[root@server-600 yum.repos.d]# yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="epel" list avilable

DiscordianUK
Looks like a good repo
fedora--kiran
it has be to as i install it from the std rpm
http://pastebin.centos.org/32526/

but for now i simply downloaded the single rpm from epel repo manually & installed
not sure if i am doing some silly mistake on the epel repo
anyone
billings
fedora--kiran: I don't know if it's your mirror or your yum configuration, but I get copious results with the same command
fedora--kiran
thanks for checking
i did below
## RHEL/CentOS 6 64-Bit ##
# wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
so the repo is correct
mine is 64 bit centos client
billings
I tested it in a 64-bit centos6 system
fully up to date
fedora--kiran
u mean that work for u ?
yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="epel" list avilable , works for ?
         

billings
yes.
fedora--kiran
stange
strange
billings
it produces many many results.
is this a newly installed system?
is it physical?
fedora--kiran
i did 6.6 to 6.7 upgrade with centos repo from internet
so this should work too
billings
oh
wait
fedora--kiran
system is 4 month old
billings
is it a RHEL system you turned into CentOS?
fedora--kiran
no
billings
is it your hardware?
fedora--kiran
it's a vm
billings
what kind of VM?
fedora--kiran
esxi
billings
hmmm
I'd check your /etc/yum/yum.conf and other files to see if files aren't excluded somehow
fedora--kiran
lmc
that is good place
i did not check logs too
let me see them
i got it, yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="epel" list avilable
see the typo :P
last word is wrong
yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="epel" list available
that works !
thanks for looking
uid1
I do like a simple solution.
fedora--kiran
sometime you need to just look carefully at the err :P
billings
ah. I typed it myself and must have not written the typo
uid1
Don't have a way to test right now, but does autocompete via [Tab] not help with options to yum?
xand
uid1: not by default
