CentOS 5 :: How's System V Ids Intialized At System Boot Time

Aug 31, 2009

We have 2 applications set as S96 and S98 at rc3.d and rc5.d simultaneously. Both applications create a system V shared memory segment by calling shmget.If the system boot at runlevel 5, both applications can obtain their shared memory segment id correctly, i.e. 98305 and 131074 individually. While there is a root owned segment id 32768 takes first seat on the list. This is the id list:

root, 32768
S96_app, 98305
S98_app, 131074

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Hosed Intel DP35DP Centos 5.3 Upgrade?

Jul 10, 2009

I have an intel DP35DP motherboard - ICH9 southbridge - set to AHCI mode. Working fine under 5.2. Yesterday I updated to centos 5.3, and got kernel 2.6.18-128.1.16 and now it can't boot. It hangs trying to read sata1 with DRDY errors and exceptions.So then I installed 5.3 from a DVD onto a new drive, and got kernel 2.6.18-128. This worked, most of the time, but occasionally gave me this error. I then updated my BIOS, and the error went away.Then I updated this new working drive to the latest kernel (yum update again) and got kernel 2.6.18-128.1.16, and now it wont boot again, with the same message.

ata1: failed to read log page 10h (errno=-5)

CentOS 5 Networking :: Ifcfg-eth0 Rewritten On Each Boot After Upgrade To 5.3 From 5.2

May 12, 2009

I have just upgraded a CentOS 5.2 box to Centos 5.3

I did have a bridged networking setup for Virtualbox which worked well. eth0 was bridged with br0. br0 boot protocol was DHCP and it sent its DHCP_HOSTNAME to the windows DHCP servers.

since the upgrade the br0 does not get an address but the eth0 does. I found that the scripts in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* are getting rewritten.

I figure I may not need to have a bridge any more so I stripped that out to try to get a simple network setup working. I now just have eth0. I edited /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 so that it looked like this,

~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
# Attansic Technology Corp. L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp

CentOS 5 :: Can't Boot The System After Resizing The Partitions

Nov 9, 2009

I had installed CentOs 5.3 on a Virtual Box machine (v. 3.0.10) and then I needed more free space to upgrade to CentOS 5.4 on partition /. I wanted to substract some space from /home partition in order to add some more free space to /. Thus I used a gparted live cd (v. 0.4.8-1) that it is a debian live cd. I resized the partition as I wished and every operations went successfully, but when I tried to reboot the only message that I see its 'GRUB' and nothing else happen. If I start again with the gparted live cd, everything seens to be fine as the partitions are there but I can't boot the system.

CentOS 5 :: Running System-config-boot In 5.4?

Nov 9, 2009

I'm installing CentOS for the first time to run mythtv on (I previously used Fedora, but the new version cycle was too quick). As part of the instructions I'm using, I am told to run system-config-boot (to ensure that centosplus kernel is loaded on boot). The problem is, I cant find this option in my installation of CentOS. Another option I have is to manually edit the grub.conf file, but I'm not sure exactly how I should edit it.

CentOS 5 :: Udev Hangs After Upgrade To CentOS 5.4?

May 7, 2010

I have encountered the same problem as indicated in this post: "udev hang after upgrade from 5.3 to 5.4"[URL]... I'm testing the upgrade path to centos 5.4 on several virtual machines prior to upgrading our production systems. I have upgraded centos 5.2 --> centos 5.4 and centos 5.3 to centos 5.4. In both cases udev hangs after the upgrade. The following message is displayed on the console: "Starting udev: Wait timeout. Will continue in the background [FAILED]"

I found another related post: "udev hangs on boot for a long time, suspect pam_console_apply"[URL]..So, I booted by VMs using the "udevdebug" option to grub and received the same error message - "udevd-event [###]: run_program: Waiting ## seconds for output of '/sbin/pam_console_apply /dev/..."

In my /etc/ldap.conf file "bind_policy hard" is commented out. I added a line "bind_policy soft" as described in the post and my VMs booted fine. NOTE: This problem is not encountered with a fresh install of CentOS 5.4 and the "bind_policy hard" option in the /etc/ldap.conf is commented out as in the upgraded systems. What is really causing this problem and how do I get it addressed? I have a couple hundred systems to update from various releases of CentOS 5 to the latest current version 5.4. It would be nice to get this bug squashed..

CentOS 5 :: CentOS Auto Update Kernel And Reboot System?

Mar 17, 2010

I am an old days RH release user(from 6.x) and just switching back from Debian/Ubuntu to CentOS on some servers, but I can not understand the kernel update strategy currently enabled in CentOS.There are two boxes, with almost identical installation, but recently there was an auto update of kernel on one box. This auto update also seems to issue an auto reboot on the machine, which is unacceptable on server machines.

CentOS 5 :: Cannot Install CentOS 5.4 On Embedded System Anaconda Exception?

May 1, 2010

I am trying to do a basic install of CentOS 5.4 on my embedded computer. It is a Linutop 2 system with a AMD Geode 800MHz CPU and 512Mb Ram. Have installed an IBM 40Gb 2.5" HD for OS storage. I am doing the install procedure in text mode. Everything goes as planned until I get to the package selection.

1. Booting from (i386) DVD with "linux text" parameter.
2. Skipping media check.
3. Selecting "English" install language.
4. Selecting "DK-latin1" as keyboard layout.
5. Selecting "Remove all partitions and create default layout" and selecting "no" to modifying partition layout.
6. Selecting "yes" to configure "eth0" and mark to enable "IPv4" on boot.
7. Selecting DHCP for IP configuration and Manual host name.
8. Setting time zone to "Europe/Copenhagen".
9. Setting root password to a 16 digit alphanumeric pass-phrase.
10. De-selecting "Desktop - Gnome" (no other entries selected).

When the system is checking for dependencies, an exception

CentOS 5 Hardware :: System Won't Boot After Recent Updates?

Jul 18, 2009

I did a yum update to install quite a few updates to my Centos 5.3 x86_64 system. Updates included kernel and xen which required a reboot. It must be a month or so since I last updated. The updates seemed to go fine - but when the machine restarts it goes through the bios screens which seem to detect all the hard drives etc - but then the word "Grub" appears at the bottom of the bios screen - and the system hangs. It doesn't appear to respond to keyboard input. The system is using linux raid in case that is relevant.

I am able to boot a centos5.2 live CD and look at the Logical volumes - and all appears in order to my untrained eye. I have also mounted the /dev/mdo as /tmp/bootx (boot volume) and had a quick look at /tmp/bootx/grub/grub.conf and /tmp/bootx/grub/device.map and again - I can't spot any obvious problem. I note that before the updates - my default boot was "1" and now it is "0" though this appears reasonable because the xen and non-xen images seem to be listed in the opposite order to earlier updates. I have set it to boot non-xen by default - and this has always worked in the past.

I realise that the recent updates may be a coincidence - and whatever is wrong may have occurred earlier. I cannot think of anything I have done which could have broken grub though. I can probably restore my boot volume to the state it was before the updates. I should have a backup from this morning - as luck would have it. Is this a safe thing to do - or do I need to restore both boot and root to keep them consistent. I would prefer not to restore the root system unless I have to - as this would cause some data loss. However I need advice as to whether yum and other things will get confused if the boot volume is restored in isolation.

CentOS 5 :: System Locks Up During Boot While Trying To Load First-run Configuration?

Aug 10, 2010

I just installed CentOS 5.5 on my machine and the installation appeared to complete successfully (it said it was successful). When I rebooted and tried to get into my new CentOS, my system completely locked up during the startup. According to the progress bar, it got stuck on the first-run configuration. I have not yet been able to boot into the OS. I am attempting to create a dual-boot system. I already have Windows XP installed on a separate hard drive. The GRUB loader works fine and I can choose either OS to boot into, it's just the CentOS won't finish booting. Windows is completely unaffected.Since I'm assuming the problem stems from the installation, I'll list the steps I followed.

1. Obtained the .iso image from a network drive at work (I am installing on my work machine). The image is dated May 17, 2010.

2. Burned the image to a DVD.

3. Booted from the DVD and chose to install using the graphical interface.

4. Checked the DVD. The installer verified that CentOS could be installed from it.

5. Picked my installation and keyboard languages.

6. Chose to create a custom layout for my partitions. On my second hard drive, I created the following partitions:

- Swap (8196MB, twice my system RAM)
- ext3 (100MB, mounted to /boot)
- ext3 (remaining drive space, mounted to /)

7. Picked my timezone (did not use UTC since Windows will handle setting the system time)

8. Set my root password. You don't get to know ;)

9. Did not choose to install any additional packages besides the KDE desktop. I wasn't sure what I'd need so I checked the option to customize later.

10. The installation than started and 15 minutes later, it told me it had succeeded and to remove the DVD and reboot.

11. Upon rebooting, I let the GRUB loader boot into CentOS (side note, I'd prefer if Windows was the default OS but that's something I should be able to Google on my own).

12. The startup looks like it's going fine until it gets to the first-run configuration, at which point the entire system locks up and requires a hard reboot. I've tried several times since and it always locks up at the same point.

CentOS 5 :: Running A CentOS 5.5 System Which Does NOT Support VT Technology

Jun 3, 2010

I am running a CentOS 5.5 system which does NOT support VT Technology, so I am unable to use Xen HV. I am very happy with OpenVZ other than the fact that it doesn't support Windows, only Linux.I'd like to have VMWare Server 2.x installed, but it appears that OpenVZ changes the Kernel to, in my case, 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6. The default kernel on my system is 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.i386.If I change grub to load 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.i386, VMWare will work but OpenVZ will not. If I change grub to load 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6, OpenVZ will work, but VMWare will not.If I try to run /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl while in the 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6 kernel, I get an error of:

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/ src/ linux/ include]I'm so lost as what to do now..is there anyway I can compile both of the kernels together somehow?

General :: Configure A System To Boot Windows XP / CentOS 4 And RHEL5

May 21, 2010

I am trying to configure a system to boot Windows XP, CentOS 4 and RHEL5. I have one hard drive that contains both Windows XP and CentOS 4, and a separate drive that contains RHEL5. Until recently, I only had one SATA cable, so I could only connect one drive at a time. Under this configuration, everything works fine. When the RHEL5 drive is connected, I can boot into it. When the Windows/CentOS drive is connected, I can dual-boot into either OS. (GRUB was configured on this drive automatically when I installed CentOS into a new partition.)

Opening the box and moving the SATA cable is a lot of trouble, so I finally got a second SATA cable and enabled both SATA0 and SATA1 in the BIOS. I currently have the Windows/Centos drive as the primary, and I can still boot into both Windows/Centos. Now, I want to add RHEL5 to menu, but I can't find the file GRUB is using to present its menu at startup.

I have configured GRUB before on other systems, but I just know the very basics, such as where the grub.conf file should be. So, I spent a whole day reading advice online and asking friends who might have experience with these issues. Here are the steps I have taken so far:

I confirmed there is no /boot/grub directory, and /etc/grub.conf is a broken soft-link to /boot/grub/grub.conf. I did a find for grub.conf, which found nothing. I did a find for menu.lst, which found one item -- an example GRUB config file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I noticed that when CentOS boots, I see the GRUB commands printed to the screen, the first of which is:

root (hd0,2)

So, I did a grep -R "(hd0" * at the / directory, which also found only one item -- the example menu.lst file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I discovered that I can go to the command line grub from the grub menu and do:

cat (hd0,2)/grub/grub.conf

The cat command returns a printout of the grub configuration the system is obviously using. I didn't create this file, but the titles are identical to what I see in the GRUB menu, the default boot is Windows, and the timeout is very short. This must be the file. It looks like:

default=2
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,2)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title CentOS (2.6.9-89.ELsmp)

[Code].....

I've also tried making the RHEL5 drive the primary drive. In that case, I can modify the existing /boot/grub/grub.conf file and see my changes at the GRUB boot menu. However, I can't get Windows to boot in this configuration. I've done a lot of google searching on the topic and added map commands to make Windows think it is on the primary drive. But, I'm still unsuccessful on this front as well. I think I'm closer to solving the problem with Windows/CentOS as the primary. However, if you think I will have more success with RHEL5 as the primary drive, I can provide more details as to my current grub.conf on that drive in a later post.

CentOS 5 :: Centos 5.2 Installed On /dev/hda3, Won't Boot, Cant Find Grub Stage 2?

Nov 10, 2009

I just upgraded by box from Fedora Core 9 to Centos 5.2. Finally!I have a 500GB SATA drive, it's partitioned into three equal size slices, hda1 through 3. The old Fedora was on hda1, I installed the new Centos on hda3. I instructed the installer to write the MBR to /dev/hda, not /dev/hda3. Fdisk says I have sector 0 unused.First, the system wouldn't boot - it just looped through the BIOS, rebooting over and over again. The BIOS sees the disk, but it never loaded Grub. I tried re-running grub-install /dev/hda, and not I get a Grub Error 17 after stage 1.5 loads.

I can boot from rescue OK, the grub.conf man menu.lst look fine, it's pointing to "root (hd0,2)". It's either the BIOS that can't find the MBR, or the MBR can't find Grub.When I looked at the disk with fdisk after the install, hda1 was still marked bootable, hda3 was not, so I swapped bootable flags but that has not made a difference. I also appended the new grub to the old grub thinking I could get the MBR (if it is there) to load the old grub and thence find the new Centos, but that didn't work either.Mobo is an old Shuttle AK35.Any ideas? Did I mess up by not telling the system to put the MBR on /dev/hda3? Is there a way to fix this without reinstalling?

Installation :: Dual CentOS - Windows 7 Boot - Had To Delete CentOS Partition And No Grub Menu

Sep 19, 2010

3 partitions (in order): Windows 7, CentOS and shared data partition.

I need to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (c:windowswinsxs seems to be something not easily remedied).

GParted didn't work in moving things around (bad sector) so I wiped out its partition (# 2 out of 3) and I was able to increase the size of the Windows 7 partition (I can reinstall CentOS easily and not much work lost).

Except ... no more grub menu (unsurprising). This incantation does allow me to boot into Windows 7.

Is there any way of rebuilding the grub menu short of reinstalling CentOS (5.5)?
