CentOS 5 :: Character Set On Installs - Danish Characters - UTF-8

Feb 10, 2010

I am having a problem editing / decoding files and characters in UFT-8 on my CentOS installs. I have a single FreeBSD server where the problem does not exist. Basically, what happens is that Danish special characters, as well as other non-ASCII characters, come out garbled when processed on the system. As an example, if I open a vim editor and type characters like � it comes out as ø

If I try using nano, the characters come out as Relatedly, if I import UTF-8 encoded files from other sources, they also appear broken when edited locally. I have tried updating the system language using system-config-language. Also, I have no desktop environment installed, I access my servers only through the command line. Here's some information that may or may not be relevant, (I have googled the problem a while and have come up empty except for references to some of these things that are already set):

CentOS 5 :: CentOS Installs A Buggy Version Of Synergy

Mar 10, 2010

As I use a (CentOS) Linux computer and a Windows XP PC side by side, I decided to install Synergy, a software to use one computer's mouse and keyboard on neighboring computers too.However, Add/Remove Software installed Synergy Plus 1.3.4-1 instead. That mostly works... Except there's a known bug on Synergy, see bug 2955158: if you use Synergy Server on CentOS to control the Windows computer, as soon as you touch the keyboard when focus is in Windows, it freezes. (I can still ssh into CentOS, but its GUI is unusable.)

Well, Synergy-Plus 1.3.4 inherited that bug. That makes it, for that purpose, useless.So I uninstalled Synergy-Plus and tried to install the lower version, Synergy 1.3.1-7, as per the recommendation in the comment on that bug report, except: I ended up with Synergy-Plus 1.3.4 again.I tried again from the command line, using yum, to no avail: yum told me Synergy 1.3.1-7 was obsolete and replaced by Synergy-Plus.I had to exclude Synergy-Plus from installation with yum, with "-x 'synergy-plus-*'", to finally get Synergy 1.3.1-7.

There, I don't have this problem. I do think that making people upgrade to Synergy-Plus 1.3.4 is a mistake.It's still not perfect. With Windows as the Synergy server (and using the Windows keyboard), if I try to type a ">" (on an AZERTY keyboard), it types "�" instead); and I seem to have an issue to copy text from Windows into CentOS.With the roles swapped, using CentOS as the Synergy server and with the CentOS keyboard, I can copy from Windows. I'm still not sure what is the cause of this.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Telnet Localhost 25 Hanging After Escape Character Is '^]'?

Dec 5, 2010

I have recently upgraded to a VPS for the purpose of web hosting a group of sites related to my business.The reason for the upgrade was because we wish to run a shopping cart software which required greater memory for PHP and the VPS was the most economic solution. So, I have very basic linux knowledge but I am the definition of a newbie when it comes to going further than just scratching the surface of server configuration! I have successfully hosted our main site for a number of weeks but recently the postfix service stopped sending mail. I have Plesk Control Panel installed and postfix continually shows as not started even though in SSH the service status is definitely running - I have gone through the troubleshooting checklist here (http://www.postfix-book.com/debugging.html#d0e6) but can't get any further than section 2.1 as when running the host command (#host relay-test.mail-abuse.org), I get # -bash: host:command not found. I've gone further in the document but not found any issues...

When postfix was working properly (i.e. sending emails!), the plesk CP showed the service as started and all emails from the website were sending as normal. The mailq command is showing the messages stuck in the mailq and the maillog shows the following:- http://pastebin.centos.org/36446 - these are the latest few pages.To check the configuration and basic elements I have flushed the mailq (which shows a stack of messages waiting) and I have also spent a long time (2 weeks) reading up on the parameters that should be in main.cf and master.cf.I have found that when I 'telnet localhost 25' I get the following response...[root@s15397216]# telnet localhost 25Trying to localhost.Escape character is '^]'.

Ubuntu :: Delete All ASCII Characters In File - Leave Chinese Characters Only

Jul 8, 2011

What command could I use in terminal to delete all ASCII characters? That is, delete a-z, A-Z, 0-9, and all punctuation? I have a file containing Chinese characters, and I want to remove everything else and leave just the Chinese.

I can use grep to leave only the lines that have Chinese in them, but this still leaves a lot of non-Chinese stuff on those lines. Does anyone know how I could actually remove everything that isn't Chinese?

General :: Does Non-printing Characters Escape Characters Still Needed For PS1 Definition?

While modifying the definition of my PS1, I saw that "[" and "]" markers should be added to help bash to compute the right display lenght. Many exemples on the web do not use them or even mention them.I searched for a solution to add them automatically, like with sed, but I didn't find any example.Are they still needed and is there a recommandation not to use sed to define PS1?

Is there a way to install 5.5 on my laptop and have UI and 1080p resolution?

I have to say that 5.4 Live runs well - UI loads with correct resolution. With 5.5 live I get black screen.

CentOS 5 :: Emacs Displaying All Characters As Boxes - Fonts Broken?

Dec 30, 2010

In CentOS 5.4 (Final), emacs is displaying characters as little boxes. see attached screen shot. I searched the Web and found others have this same problem with emacs in CentOS 5.4 but have not found any solution. I installed emacs in a base CentOS Amazon EC2 instance as follows:

yum -y groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
yum -y install emacs
yum -y groupinstall emacs

This issue does not arise for me in Amazon EC2 instances running Red Hat, Fedora, or Ubuntu when I install emacs as I did here. I am not X font savvy

Ubuntu :: Frozen Panel - Messing Around With The Alternate Character Panel App And Made A Custom Character Set

Jun 12, 2011

I was messing around with the alternate character panel app and made a custom character set. I then wanted to put it on a new panel and created a new panel. I moved the character set to that panel, and then started to mess around with the panel settings (auto hide, show hide buttons, and expand, to be specific.) So far so good, until I moved the panel from the right side of the screen to the top. I already had a panel here, and it seemed not to like hiding a panel when there was already one on the top.

When the new panel hid itself, all my panels stopped responding (any clicks on them did nothing) and my processor started going at 100%. I tried a reboot and the only thing that changed is that now I can't even see my panels. I'm guessing I need to change the settings back manually through the prompt, but I don't know how to do that. I am using 10.04 and have not upgraded gnome since upgrading to 10.04.

OpenSUSE :: All RPM Installs Do Not Have Icons

I have a little problem going on with my openSUSE 11.3 // GNOME computer. Whenever I install a RPM package, whether it be from a .rpm in my Downloads, etc. or from the zypper repositories, they never have an icon. I continuously have to go to Google and find an icon for my application and change the launcher's properties in my menu.

why this is happening and how I may be able to fix it? It's getting a little tedious having to do this for everything that I install.

Red Hat :: (Oracle) 5.4 Installs But Will Not Boot?

Feb 3, 2010

Distribution = Oracle Unbreakable Linux 5.4 x86_64Machine = HP DL180 2U ServerModifications = LSI SAS/SATA PCIExpress CardSo I plop 5.4 on this box, and install goes great, but then when I try to reboot the machine ('install is complete, click to reboot'), it won't go... post completes, fibre card and sas card get done with their posts, and then it just craps out when you'd expect it to start loading the OS.So I thought the card was bad... stuck the horrendous HP Storageworks PCIExpress SAS card back into it and had the same behavior, good install, but boot failure.

Bios is set to defer to the PCI card for boot priority -- first bios boot device is the DVD drive, then it defers to the card. With the LSI, I had chosen physical drive 0 (1st one) to boot. With the HP Storageworks, you can't boot physical drives, so I just made a logical drive from one physical drive and went that route... same behavior

I figured if it found it during install it should find it during boot but that doesn't seem to be the case

Fedora :: BootLoader F15 And Ubuntu 11.04 - Can't See Each Other During Their Installs ?

May 27, 2011

I'm pretty new with boot loaders, and I'm having some troubles. I had Ubuntu 11.04 installed and working pretty well, but I went to give Fedora 15 a try. I thought dual boot would be ideal.

So I used some free space in my HD, installed Fedora 15 Live USB, / in one partion, and /home in another, and a swap.

I always use /boot in another 100 MB partition at the start of the disk, so during the F15 bootloader, I directed it to the /boot partition.

After reboot, I can get into F15, but when I select 'other' I get an error message (sorry, its hard to remember "boot img not found, press cntrl alt del " )

In a panic, I used an old boot cd, ubuntu 10.10, created yet another really tiny partition of 2.3 gigs from free space, and installed its bootloader in my /boot partition again.

I can boot back into Ubuntu 11.04 (or 10.10, which I will see nuke anyways.) But no fedora choice anymore at all?

Is there a boot cd/tool that I can use to read all 3 of my OS, and allow me to boot into the one I want?

Or should I reinstall a Fresh F15 (since i've not done anything) and make different changes during install ?

Any reason why F15 and Ubuntu can't see each other during their installs?

These boxes aren't connected together, but each has an unused LAN card if that would help. Each box has a 56K modem that runs about 40K! I haven't started the update process yet, so I don't know if there any new options to the SW Management tools in 11.2.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installs On 133/266mhz FSB But Not 166/333

Feb 25, 2010

I have tried many things but none of which seem to work.

Motherboard : N2PAP-LITE
Processor : AMD SEMPRON 2800+ (32 Bit)
Stock FSB Settings : 166/333MHz

This is a really odd problem. It installs under 133/266MHz and runs fine. When it's at 133/266 it reconizes it as AMD ATHLON XP in the BIOS and the Linux Installation. I want to be able to install it using 166/333MHz which is the stock setting of the processor! When I set it to that in the BIOS it reconizes as a AMD SEMPRON 2800+ but will not install Ubuntu 9.10.

This is the error I get if I try to run it from the CD, Install it, or boot from the current installation which I installed it with 133/266MHz. If anyone can please help me figure this out it would be great, im trying to use it as a server and would not like to bottleneck it as it shouldn't be. I get these errors


? unknown_bootoption+0x0/0x1ab

Now if you want the whole error list I will type it up.This is a link for the motherboard manual.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 LTS Installs As Server Only?

I burnt a 10.04 LTS disc when it was released and just tried installing on an old Pentium 2 400 MHz with 320 MB and two 10 GB drives. After rebooting, it comes up in text mode with a tty2 login. Did this install the server version only? Is there a command to launch the GUI shell? There were no options during the install to choose GUI or server version and I assumed this was the 32-bit GUI version and the install disc ran we GUI during installation.

Ubuntu :: Default To / Opt For Package Installs?

Apr 28, 2011

Friend asked me an interesting question today. We were talking about having a 'fallback' option in Ubuntu / other Linux distros so that if you wanted to default to stock ubuntu with none of your personal additions (excluding updates)and we came up with the idea that if dpkg / apt would install anything NEW to /opt, then you could go back to a vanilla install by just doing and then you have a essentially a clean install.

Out of curiosity more than anything else, we started looking around, googling possible ways to phrase that question and nothing came up. So does anyone know of a way to set that up?I know you can add /opt/ to your PATH variable so that you can put an executable there and BASH will find it. But I didn't know if you could do it for install things there by default.If nothing else at least it would give Ubuntu a more centralized place to install applications / view all parts of a applications because roaming through /etc/, /usr/, /bin/ and everything else that comes with the "AWESOME" Filesystem Hierarchy we still have is a pain.
