wolfy: LC_ALL is preferable since it changes everything, trying to set it to C system wide
wolfy
please pastebin the output of cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n and also the full output of locale
Evolution
note that for centos7 it would be /etc/locale.conf
nerobro
Awesome, a netbsd tool solved my problems
(Action) boggles
optimusno
yeah locale.conf seems to be the ticket in Cent7 Cent6 is the beast giving me the run around
I'm just hacking up profile.d/lang.sh
seems to be the non-documented way to force it
Evolution
optimusno: for 6 it should read/parse /etc/sysconfig/i18n
as wolfy said.
TrevorH
are you sure nothing else in /etc/profile.d is setting it
optimusno
yeah I would think so but I change, reboot and nothing changes in the ouput of the locale command
TrevorH
or ~/.i18n
         

wolfy
(Action) still waits for the info asked for 5 min ago
optimusno
I think I got it
seems to be a kernel boot option as well :)

Thanks everyone

Hi all. So a local OS yum repo mirror for OS builds and updates. Could this work as a strategy...
Have my current "release" repo called 6-release, or 7-release... which is a clone of the latest DVD content at this point in time... /6.7/os/x86_64/
Periodically bring down updated packages from /6.7/updates/x86_64/ and sync them into my 6-release directory.
When a new version is released eg 6.8, bring down the DVD copy of that from /6.8/os/x86_64/
Then when I'm ready, copy over the latest packages from my 6.8 copy into my release repo (or re-point a symlink) and run yum update on all my VMs (through Puppet).

Whats up fellas
Anyone had kernel panic when they updated to the new kernel via yum?

@polls
centbot
Polls of the channel are generally pointless. If you have a specific question to ask you are better off just asking it rather than asking the channel 'Does anyone use foo?'
Bahhumbug
What is the _specific_ issue you're having? Details will help.

I have a post on there.. for the panic error

Hi everyone! I'm using the board Intel S2600GZ and trying to Install Centos 7 on it. I failed to install with hardware RAID configuration with the Intel RAID module RMS25CB080. Thanks to TrevorH, yesterday he illuminated me and he says that the megaraid_sas module has been deprecated and now i'm trying to install CentOS with software RAID, but I ca
nnot see the hard drives in the CentOS installation anyway. The BIOS has been set to ahci mode using the RMS25CB080 RAID module and the Intel Embedded RAID controller II. I can't figure out how i can proceed.
blasson
I can also upload a picture i took of the screen from my cell phone. I had to boot using the older kernel to get on here and ask for help :) so i am on the computer currently.
Bahhumbug
blasson: As you're using drivers not supplied by the distro kernel you may want to ask in #elrepo.
blasson
Bahhumbug, you got it buddy!

Hi everyone. If I'm going to create a local repo cache of CentOS install media, if I only support x86_64 VMs do I need the i386 packages as well?
blasson
Bahhumbug, idk what happened but i did yum remove kernel-version... rebooted into the old kernel.. re-updated it and it works...?
weird
batfastad
Are there any ocassions when an x64 machine might also grab the i386 package for some reason?
TrevorH
sure, lots
did you read the wiki article about creating a local mirror?
         

sartan
i cheated @ work, i just precache my web proxies as a 'mirror'
batfastad
I did, yes.
TrevorH
batfastad
sartan: I thought of that too. But I think I want to go trhoguh the effort of doing this manually as a learning exercise
sartan
randomly, wasn't there a meta-package for 32-bit library support? lika ia32lib ?
or am i thining debian
TrevorH
debian
batfastad
TrevorH: So do I really really really need to grab both basearch directories?
TrevorH
the x86_64 repo contains the 32 bit packages that should be needed
batfastad
Ah ok, great info
TrevorH
I exclude the i386 directory from my el6 mirror
--exclude "*/i386" --exclude "*/i686" --exclude '*/x86_64/drpms' --exclude "isos"
sartan
what is a drpm ?
batfastad
delta rpm?
I remember seeing those last time I ran fedora on my desktop (a while ago).
sartan
i don't think i've evr [knowingly] used one of those
TrevorH
yes and the drpms directory on a centos mirror is massive
batfastad
Doing an update seemed to take forever as I guess it saves net bandwidth by downloading the delta, then applies it to the installed package
TrevorH
there are 1538 *i686* files in 6/os/x86_64/Packages
batfastad
Which took an absolute age IIRC
TrevorH
good for people on slow connections, bad for those short of disk space and with fast connections
sartan
are those used automatically?
TrevorH
drpms?
blasson
How can i make an image of my current setup right now? Like if my OS gets corrupted bc i'm trying to try something new to learn and want to back up what i did to a point im at now
TrevorH
they are used if you have yum-presto installed
Bahhumbug
I can't help but think the ENT part of CentOS is becoming more irrelevant as time goes by.
sartan
blasson: easiest if you're running under a hypervisor like kvm, vmware, xen,e tc. are you?
blasson
No, CentOS 7 is the ONLY OS on this machine.
batfastad
I was actually just going to mirror 6.6/os/x86_64/. Symlink that to 6/
Periodically grab updates from 6/updates/x86_64/Packages/ and copy into my 6/
Then when I'm ready to switch to 6.7, bring 6.7/os/x86_64/ down and repoint 6/ symlink to the 6.7 os mirror
Or should I run 2 repos, one with the release and another with the updates? The way it's done officially?
fenrus02
well, 6.x + updates == 6.current. so copying new files in as they arrive and then copying another version seems a bit .. odd.
TrevorH
batfastad: the local mirror wiki article covers how to update it
batfastad
Yeah I think I'm overthinking it.
TrevorH
read right to the end of that page, the final section covers how to move to the next release
batfastad
Hmm that's not really the way I wanted it to work. But now I'm not sure really how I want it to work at all. And it's really not that difficult :)
Thanks for the info... I'll be back
TrevorH
the wiki article works

cpupower.service refuses to do anything useful on boot, but if i exec it later, it does what its supposed to. and yes, it's enabled via systemctl
sudo systemctl status cpupower
cpupower.service - Configure CPU power related settings Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/cpupower.service; enabled) Active: inactive (dead)
is what i see if i check status after boot
if i run systemctl start cpupower
then it does what its supposed to...
fenrus02
post the whole output to a pastebin. put the link here. other useful info is there, for example - the journal entries.
Crusher4
....that is the whole output
systemctl status cpupower only provides actual status if you re-run after logon
...because it only actually does stuff if you re-run after logon
fenrus02
did you review /etc/sysconfig/cpupower ?
Crusher4
if that was wrong, why would it work if i do systemctl start cpupower?
fenrus02
(Action) sighs .. n/m. do whatever you're going to do
Crusher4
only two things i can concieve of is that it's starting before something is ready, or systemctl lies when it says it's enabled
yes, i did review
and even tried changing the stop options to the same as the start options
so that there should be no conceivable way that it does not set the performance scheduer _if_ it ran at any point
