CentOS 5 :: RedHat EL Versus 5.5 Packages

Feb 17, 2011

I'm running CentOS V5.5. I am intererested in several packages available under RHEL V5. Is it possible to install these directly into CentOS or should I be looking for a package built for CentOS 5 specifically?

Slackware :: Pros/Cons Installing From Source Versus Packages

Mar 15, 2011

At work / home / laptops I have about 5 slackware machines. I have always tended to install new packages on each machine from source, generally using slackbuilds when available. I thought I would try 'libreoffice' and reading alien-bobs blog I deduced that a full from source install might be pretty difficult, so I followed his advice and just took the package (.txz file) and used installpkg. To my slight surprise this installed and ran perfectly.

Now I'm wondering if someone would clarify under what circumstances you can just take the slackware package from one machine to another and install. More generally I guess what are the main advantages of building from source. Is it mainly about availability of all the required dependencies?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Ping -I On 5.2 Versus 4.7

Feb 12, 2009

I have two CentOS servers on the same LAN. One is CentOS 4.7 the other 5.2 They both also have a WAN interface to the same remote network. On CentOS 4.7 I can ping the remote network through the CentOS 5.2 server. i.e. ping -I eth0 remotehost On CentOS 5.2 I can NOT force the ping to go out the CentOS 4.7 server without over riding my routing tables to make eth0 a more direct route than the eth1 route.

On 5.2 If I do the ping -I eth0 remotehost, and a tcpdump on eth0, the outbound ping will not be going out eth0, he overrides it and sends it out eth1. In fact, on CentOS 4.7 if I do not have a route to the remote network through the other server (turn proxy arp off on the 5.2 machine), I will get "Destination Host Unreachable". I would ideally like to get the 5.2 machine to behave the way the 4.7 machine does.

My real life application for this is that I have a CentOS server in a location that controls access to the Internet. There is another router on the netowrk that handles traffic back to our corporate office. the CentOS server also has the ability to get to the corporate office. I ping the corporate office through eth0 to find out if the link through the other router is indeed up and active. I want to make this a CentOS 5.2 server but alas, I can not tell if the other route is up or not.

CentOS 5 :: YUM - Install Versus Upgrade

Feb 18, 2011

How does yum determine to "upgrade" an rpm verses "install" (and possibly delete) a package when performing a yum update? I have read documentation that yum uses the "Obsolete" and "Conflicts" tags within the rpm to determine whether to upgrade or install a new rpm. Is this correct and complete? I recall from somewhere kernel rpms should always be installed and never upgraded. How does yum determine that kernel rpms need to be installed using rpm -i as opposed to rpm -U? I have scanned a kernel spec file looking for clues without any luck.

Server :: Ubuntu Versus Centos In A Large Web Environment

Mar 8, 2010

I have been a RPM-based distribution guy for a long time (redhat,centos,suse). We have a large shared and dedicated web environment that is starting to require more and more linux. I am in a position to switch gears and move to ubuntu if it makes sense. Things that are important to me are:

1. ease of deployment (both servers and websites themselves)
2. patch management
3. documentation

CentOS 5 :: 12GB Of RAM On 32bit XEN Kernel - MemInfo Versus XMTop

Feb 10, 2010

I have a server with 12 Gig or ram in it (has per bios detection). Free and meminfo agree.
[root@virtualHost ~]# free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 7726080 794136 6931944 0 50036 391236
-/+ buffers/cache: 352864 7373216
Swap: 8385888 0 8385888

xm top does not :
xentop - 13:36:07 Xen 3.1.2-164.11.1.el5
5 domains: 2 running, 3 blocked, 0 paused, 0 crashed, 0 dying, 0 shutdown
Mem: 12577024k total, 12575312k used, 1712k free CPUs: 4 @ 2833MHz

In my /proc/cpuinfo I can see pae in the flags. None of my domUs are going to need more than 3 GB of ram but I was wondering what is the REAL ammount of RAM accessible to the system. If I run 4 domU at the same time. Around 7 GB or 12 GB?

CentOS 5 :: Will Redhat Support CentOS Under Any Circumstances?

Oct 16, 2009

Will Redhat support CentOS under any circumstances? I have heard at my employer that if you setup you system with CentOS and then on down the line you find you need RHEL support that you can purchase a license from Redhat and they will support your CentOS installation.Is that an official policy at Redhat? Unofficial? Or completely untrue?

CentOS 5 :: Can Redhat Network Be Used For Centos?

Apr 16, 2010

I'm in a research institution with about 20 linux desktops currently running different versions of fedora. The sysadmins used to update and configure each of these machines individually. We want to move to centos to make operating systems more uniform and simplify administration.

The basic needs are: One central, easy-to-use package management for all machines central management of configuration files for all machines. In addition it would be nice to have a local repository with a subset of user-installable rpms. It looks like rhel can do this with the redhat network. Is it possible on centos, too? If yes, is it necessary to pay a subscription to rhn to use their web hosting of services?

CentOS 5 Server :: Disable Application Monitoring In Redhat Cluster

Dec 22, 2010

I have added apache application into redhat cluster. If the apache process failed, it will cause the service group fail over. I want to disable the application monitoring. I search throung Internet and it depends on the apache init script. If I change /etc/init.d/httpd status always return 0(success). THe service group will not fail over even apache failed.

However, I want to remain the application monitoring but stop failover. If the application like apache failed, I want Redhat cluster to try restart the application like 3 or 4 times. If restart failed, it will not failover.

CentOS 5 :: Get Centos To Recognize Updated Packages?

Jun 24, 2009

I have a copy of the DVD Iso for centos 5.3. I downloaded the updated packages to the Centos directory and then ran the repomanage perl script to remove the old files from the directory. I then ran the createrepo and the new iso image with the script code below.

rm -f CentOS_1.0.0.iso
echo "Updating repository"
dvd_discinfo=`head -1 $rhelBuild/.discinfo`
echo "$dvd_discinfo


I am using VMWare to test the build, so I have the cd pointing to the iso image. I get the CentOS to start up find and dandy asking the questions for the interactive boot. It gets thru the stage of checking dependencies and then when it starts to copy down the image to the "harddrive" that is when the problem occurs.

One of the updated files is file-4.17-15.el5_3.1.i386.rpm (file-4.17-15.el5.i386.rpm was removed using repomanage), but the loader is looking for the removed file. I've looked thru any dependencies, but nothing specific for the removed file, all are asking for /usr/bin/file with no specific version numbers. I have run a rpm -test on all the rpms, but haven't been able to look thru that to see if there is a specific request for the version.

I did try this, but it just moved on to the next file. I did not replace the file version, but then it found another problem that was the same as this, the updated file is in the repo, but it is requesting the old version. I looked thru the fileslist and others to see if maybe that was the problem, but they were updated to the new versions.

CentOS 5 :: CentOS Installing Packages Did Not Select?

Dec 28, 2009

I've noticed this happen with every CentOS installation I've done in the past and it's confusing me. On the software template screen select, I always select "Server" and leave the extras option unchecked, I also check "Customise now". The only things I choose are the editors (to get vi), Web server and server configuration tools (and this time also Java). I didn't select any GUI programs, yet it still installs things like X, GNOME components and also samba. Why does it do that? There no way they're needed for dependencies. Is there something I'm missing when selecting the software components? Why does it still install samba when I didn't select it from under "Servers" components? Or have I misunderstood what software selection does and it installs all those components regardless but doesn't automatically turn the services on?

Server :: Change Of Apache Httpd.conf Doesn't Work On CentOS/RedHat?

Jun 30, 2010

I've been trying to make install apache 2.1.8 and php 5.2.3 and work on them. After updating and installing some dependence files, apache and php could both be installed.

Then I tried to configure them. I added the following content to the end of Apache httpd.conf:


Then I run /path/to/apachectl start, and saw the message:


Invalid command 'RewriteEngine', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

Then I remembered that I didn't include the rewrite module while making install apache. So I removed the 2 lines I just added to httpd.conf.

But, after running /path/to/apachectl stop and start again, I could still see:


When I use firefox to open http://host_ip:8080/, I could see "It works!". But when I open http://host_ip:8080/hello.php (the file is already under htdocs), firefox said

Failed to Connect

Why and how to solve it?

I noticed that for some stupid reason, the conf file wasn't updated at all and the 2 erroneous lines were still there.

CentOS 5 :: Can I Remove 32 Bit Packages

If I do a fresh 'netinst' of CentOS 5.4 x64 on a server, what is the correct way to verify that no 32-bit packages were installed or mixed in with x64? Also can someone tell me if it is safe to remove those 32-bit RPM packages?
I searched the Wiki for 'Post Install Tips' and could not find anything there or on Google.
