CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Any Rpms From Custom Appliance Build

Jun 15, 2011

We have an appliance with image being installed from CD/DVD installation
This appliance image is based on CentOS 4.7 kernel/installer/etc. Everything works fine, we ship this product for about 2 years. Recently I had to move it (port everything) to CentOS 5.5 Everything went fine and it works fine except one minor thing )) We can't install it from CD/DVD image yet. Actually it start fine, finds kickstart file, creates partitions correctly, copies install image to harddrive, but fails the next step when it tries to install RPM's

The message we get:

Quote:
the file termcap-5.5-1.20060701.1.noarch.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require re-installation"

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Build Custom Kernel

Mar 18, 2010

I am trying to build a custom kernel but I couldn't. Here are the steps to reproduce it:
1. Set Up an RPM Build Environment as its is explained in [URL]
2. Then follow the instructions in [URL]
3. When I try to install the kernel source rpm I get the following error:

[matias@Centos ~]$ rpm -i [URL

Ubuntu :: Reinstalling Lucid - Build Custom Install Disc?

Jul 3, 2010

After troubleshooting the lockup problem on my installation of Lucid, I want to wipe the thing and reinstall. I have an integrated Broadcom wireless chipset that I want to integrate the firmware into the new Lucid install disc, along with Nvidia's 180.06 drivers for my GeForce4 440 Go (yes, it's an old machine). I need to build this from XP though, since my current Lucid install is to the point of unusable.

Is there any good way to do that? With XP builds you can use nLite to slipstream just about anything into a clean XP install, including all available hotfixes, extra drivers and a few applications. Is there a similar program for building Ubuntu installs that can do that as well? Also, if I download a new ISO of Lucid to build from, will it have all the current updates integrated, or it be up to me to do it? Edit: just realized I posted this under the wrong topic.

General :: How To Install CentOS With Lesser RPMs?

Jan 30, 2010

I have been challenged to install CentOS occupying just 200 MB. As for now, I installed the OS with only first CD.

Just put :

@core

under %package directive in ks.cfg. I can see the space as of now is:

Code:

# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 13G 740M 12G 9% /
/dev/sda1 99M 12M 83M 12% /boot
tmpfs 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm

I need to make it to atleast 300MB.I can see those RPM lying in Linux Box:

Code:

df -hyum remove 389*df -hyum remove *ldap*df -hrpm -qa --qf '%11{SIZE} %{NAME}
' | sort -k1n
0 basesystem
0 filesystem

[code]...

I will remove java, selinux-* but what other package I can remove.

Note: I dont need any application to run but just bare OS.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Install Of Nvidia Rpms From ATrpm Fails Due To Vmlinuz Filename

Oct 16, 2009

I have installed Centos 5.3 64 bit version and run yum update so the system is up to date. However, I have noticed the kernel version that is installed is:

uname -a
Linux elektra.chemresearch 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and when attempting to install from ATrpm.net the nvidia driver I get this message:

yum install nvidia-graphics169.07 nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-`uname -r`
...
Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 is needed by package 1:nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5-169.07-94.el5.x86_64 (atrpms)

Now, yum says the kernel is up to date so how can I get the nvidia driver rpms to install? The entries in /boot are:

vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5
vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.el5

I have checked to make sure that the update repo is enabled. There were quite a few updates applied after the initial installation and the initial kernel was updated as the yum log indicates and also the entries in /boot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Custom Build From Suse Studio|missing "initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-default" File?

Dec 2, 2010

If you can access Suse Studio here is thlink to the buildLFS Host - SUSE GalleryGoogle hasn't been friendly and neither has a search on these forums, I don't know which man to read so a finger in the right dirrection (preferably not the middle) would be nice as far as that goesRight now the yast live installer trips up at %84 while saving the boot loader configuration and displays a popup that says �An error occurred during initrd creation. /sbin/mkinitrd: illegal optionI then press enter to acknowledge the message and the installation continues without a hitch.

When I go to boot up (no other os installed) grub says it cant find the file initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-defaultIf you boot the live cd again you can mount the boot partition and you�ll find a broken symlink called initrd that islooking for the missing file above.Like I said above, if it an obvious fix, all I need is some direction, I don't mind reading. (been doing that all day)If you need more specifics Id be happy to supply, I'm just not sure whats relevant and don't want to bloat the post.

Server :: Custom CentOS 5 Install With Ks.cfg File And CentOS All In One

Jan 14, 2010

What i want to be able to do is create a custom kickstart for my centOS 5 server. I want to create a bootable cd that I can pop in my server and basically walk away for 45 minutes and I come back and its fully installed. All the directions I have read so far tell me that I have to create a seperate ks.cfg and then I need my original centos cd to get it booted. Then the cd will ask for where the ks.cfg file is and I have to type the location. I just want to pop the CD in and type in linux_clean or something and have it perform a custom install based on the information and specification in my ks.cfg. How can I go about doing this?

Debian :: Custom Build Of PHP?

Nov 16, 2010

I followed The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny on howtoforge website. (Just changed some instructions to fit Sqeeze) * I did not install Control Panel, just software like LAMPP & Mail Servers - SMTP(SSL+AUTH) + POP(SSL) + IMAP(SSL).When I installed PHP it installed it with Suhosin Patch, but that patch was giving me a headache with some web scripts that I write for myself. So I decided to compile it for myself. Here is how I done it:

apt-get install build-essential
apt-get build-dep php5 (It installed about hundred packages)
apt-get source php5

Software :: Build A Custom Distro For System Maintenence?

Apr 19, 2011

scanning them with Avast! and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or by running registry cleaners like Ccleaner.However, I think it would be cool to have a Live system that I could boot from my flashdrive that I could have programs installed to do all this with.It would be cool if I could use Puppy Linux, since it loads and runs from RAM, which gives a huge speed boost when compared to running a live version of a distro like Ubuntu, but I don't really know my way around Puppy, or how to make my own "pupplet". Also, from what I could tell, Puppy Linux didn't have a package manager like Pacman or Aptitude.Here's a list of programs I would like to have a Linux alternative to use:-Avast! Anti-virus-Ccleaner (registry cleaner)-Malwarebytes Anti-Malware/Superantispyware (malware/spyware cleaner)-Perhaps also a Defrag program like Defraggle

Debian Configuration :: Slow Custom Kernel Build Amd64

Aug 17, 2011

I used make-kpkg to build the 3.0.0 source debian wheezy on a dual 3.4GHz Xeon/L1-16k/L2-1mb/800Mhz bus with 4GB PC2-3200 ECC ram and Ultra 320 SCSI, using CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 (2 hyperthreading cpus=4 cores). The build was slower than molasses in January! Top reported cpu usage total between 10% and 25%. Why won't the build use the amount of machine it has available. One footnote: I wasn't using swap space. It literally took over an hour to build the deb kernel package.

My notebook from 2003 is at least three times faster building the 3.0.0 debian kernel source. Is it possible that this might cause improvement: make -j4 KDEB_PKGVERSION=version deb-pkg

over

CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4 make-kpkg --initrd --revision=123x kernel_image?

Could amd64 vs. i386 have some influence? Could the small processor caches on the XEON cpus have an effect. The 64-bit machine absolutely flies doing everything else. I'm miffed! I've used debian since woody, although I am not an expert, but I'm no slouch!

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Build / Make Custom Driver Into Kernel?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm new to linux and recently installed openSUSE 11.1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad SL500. So far it's great... only problem is the hotkeys and brightness control don't work. Digging around online I found this "experimental" driver that purportedly works fine, but I have no idea how to compile, install, or otherwise use it. Here... tetromino's lenovo-sl-laptop at master - GitHub I'm not sure what to do with the makefile and C file provided. For example, what do I do with this instruction...

"To enable the brightness control, load the module with the "control_backlight=1" module parameter (i.e. insmod lenovo-sl-laptop.ko control_backlight=1 )" I know someone on here will be able to explain how to do this in a "computer engineering for chemists" language! I'm comfortable enough working in the terminal with commands, but have found no real straightforward explanation of how to do so (only "programming" experience is MATLAB m file writing).

CentOS 5 :: Finding A List Of RPMS With Known Vulns?

Aug 11, 2009

Is there a list of RPMs with known vulnerabilities? I was hoping to run some scripts across the list of currently installed packages vs such a list of vulnerable, to get an idea of what systems need attention. And no, just updating everything is neither an option, nor possible. My servers don't have access (nor do I want them to) to the outside world. Further, being production systems, I can't cause a disruption outside of scheduled down time, and due to running commercial software I can't upgrade some packages due to vendor support issues.

CentOS 5 :: Duplicate Rpms In Base And Updates?

Jun 29, 2010

There appears to be three rpms duplicated between the base repo and the updates repo:

gnome-python2-gtkhtml2-2.14.2-6.el5.x86_64.rpm
gnome-python2-extras-2.14.2-6.el5.x86_64.rpm
gnome-python2-libegg-2.14.2-6.el5.x86_64.rpm

This causes a big problem for Spacewalk as the packages are non-unique among channels.

I'm assuming these should be in base but not updates?Can they be removed to address this issue?

CentOS 5 :: Part Of VLC 0.9.9 Broken With The Latest RPMs From Dag

Mar 31, 2011

Aside from a few minor issues, I've been happy with VLC 0.9.9.

I recently did a yum update to get to Centos 5.5. I've got yum pointed to Dag.

Everything worked fine, until I restarted VLC 0.9.9.

In the update it looks like ffmpeg was updated to the 6.X branch, x264, and how vlc 0.9.9 was recompiled.

wait wait wait.. let me clarify, vlc 0.9.9 still works, but a key function in it that i use has broken.

I am able to do a yum downgrade on x264 and ffmpeg, but I am unable to downgrade VLC because it tells me there is no down grade path. How do I go about requesting the previous version of VLC be added back to Dags RMP site?

I spent sometime hacking on things the last 2 days, and was able to compile using the same ./configure options that were compiled from Dag with ffmpeg 5.2, and x264 and I get them to compile cleanly. VLC 0.9.9 source compiles and the errors I'm hitting go away.

I don't think the ffmpeg 6.X rmp is broken, i just think its to new for vlc 0.9.9 and breaks certain functionality.

Fedora Installation :: Erratic Install Results W/initrd - Custom Spins With Custom Drivers - Modules?

Dec 28, 2009

Just spent three whole days barking up the wrong tree, solving Fedora 11 and Fedora 12 boot failures because the correct hypothesis was illogical: installation did not update/modify the initrd.

The first couple of times I installed Fedora 11 on the HighPoint Technologies RocketRaid 2640x4, the installation inserted my "custom" driver module (rr26xx) into the initrd, permanently, so that the system booted off the controller card for which the custom driver was inserted. (I yelled about this success in this thread: [url]

My most recent installs of BOTH F11 and F12 on the RocketRaid failed to properly set up the boot. It turns out that the "rr2640" module I "slipstreamed" into the installation process was *NOT* permanently added to the initrd by anaconda. (F12 gave me "no root device found boot has failed, sleeping forever", on boot; F11 hung also, without such error, I presume, during the init script execution). Because of limited resources and time, I only know for sure the module was missing from the F11 initrd, and am ASSUMING the same was the case with F12.

The only difference between the successful installs and the ones with failed boot is that the successful installs were made on a single-drive (JBOD) mode on the controller; whereas, the failed ones were placed on RAID 5. But, AFAIK, the created logical device for the card is "/dev/sda", in both cases, and the kernel can not distinguish between the two cases (or can it?). Thus, the inconsistency cost me a lot of time, and is still inexplicable to me.

Question: What is the best way to deal with custom drivers, today? There are custom spins, and many tools, like isomaster. Stupid question: Is there a way to modify the initrd inside an installer ISO -- be it for CD/DVD/USBboot drive -- beefing the init RAM disk with whatever modules you'd like, for the boot process (using, say, isomaster)?

And what makes anaconda understand that a module must be added to the initrd ? How can one force anaconda to do so?

How does moving to dracut as the initrd tool affect any/all of the above?

Slackware :: Install The I386 Build On One Partition And The 64-bit Build On Another

Sep 16, 2010

Trying to install SW 13.1 (on DVD) on the following system: M/B Intel: DX38BT Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 - 2.66GHz, 8MB Cache, 1066MHz FSB, Socket 775 Memory Corsair Dual Channel 8192MB PC10600 DDR3 1333MHz Memory (4x2048MB) Graphics Diamond Radeon HD 3850 Video Card - Viper, 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0 P/S Ultra 1000W

My goal is to install the i386 build on one partition and the 64-bit build on another. I have been away from Linux for a while and am sick to death of Win7, want to come home. :-}

Booted on i386 side of DVD, system freezes after a couple of lines that start with ATA2. Does not respond to 3 finger salute, ctrl-c, nothing. Have to press reset. I have tried both huge.s and hugesmp.s kernels

Booted on 64-bit side, comes up fine. I performed the install, selected for automatic lilo install. Lilo install hung but I was able to reboot. I booted off the 64-bit side again, entered the following: huge.s root=/dev/sde3 rdinit= ro It booted fully to the login prompt but the keyboard does not work, no input.

General :: Getting All RPMs By 'yum Install Pkg1 Pkg2 Pkg3' To Install On Offline System ?

Jun 12, 2011

I need to somehow do a yum installation (or equivalent of) on a system that is offline with no access to the internet. (I do have access to another Linux system that has internet access, but the Linux installations on both systems have different packages installed and enabled.)

Let's say the command to enter is 'yum install pkg1 pkg2 pkg3' (the documentation for some applications I need indicate the installation instructions this way, and not as the actual RPMs I need). Is there a way for me to run that on my offline system?

e.g. one way I can think of is to run that command on the online system, somehow if possible take note of what RPMs get installed, then transfer them to the offline system via USB and install all the RPMs via rpm command.

The problem with my above idea is that the two systems have different packages enabled, so even if yum on the online system shows a few dependencies being downloaded, I could run download and install all these RPMs and their dependencies on the offline system only to find several more missing dependencies, and dependencies of those dependencies.
