CentOS 5 :: What Does Rsyslog (using Yum) Install And How To Handle Conflicts With Syslog

Aug 21, 2009

I am thinking about installing rsyslog using yum, but I only want to try it out first and don't want to create conflicts and problems that will be hard to revert. When I ask yum on CentOS 5 about rsyslog, I get this (note much older version - it's too bad that even the latest STABLE rsyslog isn't in the repository):

CentOS 5 :: Compiling Rsyslog With RELP?

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying to install rsyslog 5.4.0 with relp on CentOS 5.5 (vmware). My installation steps:

yum install gcc.i386
make install


/usr/local/lib/rsyslog/omrelp.so exists with permission 755 owned by root. I read some similar posts but older version of centos, rsyslog, librelp and rebuilding the packages could not help.

CentOS 5 :: Centos-approved Way To Handle Group Environment Configuration?

Mar 10, 2010

What's the centos-approved way to handle group environment configuration? Let's say there are users in, oh, 4 different groups. Let's use the usual suspects:


and I want to set up environment variables and maybe some pathing that are specific to a given group. So that when 'joeblow', who is a member of group 'warehouse', logs in, the pathing and environment variables (and whatever else) that is needed for users in the 'warehouse' group is set up and configured.

What I was initially looking for was an /etc/groups.d, and in /etc/groups.d is


As part of the login process, the group memberships for the login username would be examined, and for each hit the respective /etc/groups.d/ script would be run. I'm not seeing anything like that, so I'm assuming centos uses some other mechanism, but I'm obviously not using the proper keyword mojo. Can someone point me to where this mechanism is described?

Software :: Preventing Dependency Conflicts - CentOS 6

Aug 3, 2011

I've recently installed cacti on one of my servers and grimaced a bit when I had to install additional third-party yum repositories for CentOS 6. My question is, how does one go about preventing potential conflicts with certain dependencies overwriting key/critical dependencies relied upon from packages that might share them, i.e. apache? I understand yum priorities and have read the discussions regarding pros/cons from the threads involving one of the YUM maintainers. Since I need my servers to act as production-class equipment and, hence, be as reliable as they can, I'm always hesitant to allow yum to automate package upgrades when third-party repos are involved. How best to handle this?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Network Bridging MAC Conflicts In KVM After System Rebuild?

Mar 24, 2011

After restoring from a hardware failure, I cannot get bridging to work again. I reinstalled the host version 5.5, and copied the .img file back onto the rebuilt machine. I also had the network scripts and iptables backed up. Through virt-manager I re-attached the virtual machine, and when I boot it, I get a MAC address conflict on the vm's eth0; "Device eth0 has a different MAC address than expected". The vm had a static ip address.

CentOS 5 :: Configuring Syslog-ng 3.0.3 With 5.3

Oct 5, 2009

I installed syslog-ng-3.0.3-1.rhel5.i386.rpm and at first blush it appears to be working fine to /var/log/messages. However it doesn't seem to be doing any other ancillary logging as defined in syslog-ng.conf (I've had to mod /etc/init.d/syslog-ng to look in /etc). e.g.

destination d_auth { file("/var/log/secure"); };
filter f_filter3 { facility(authpriv); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter3); destination(d_auth); };

I'm using a syslog-ng.conf which has served me well in the past (v1.6.9 on fedora).

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Log Vsftpd To Syslog

Jan 11, 2009

I open "man vsftpd.conf", it says syslog_enable If enabled, then any log output which would have gone o /var/log/vsftpd.log goes to the system log instead. Logging is done under the FTPD facility. Default: NO So I add "syslog_enable=YES" to the /etc/vsftpd.conf, and add "ftpd.* /var/log/ftplog" into /etc/syslog.conf. But there is no log infomation in the ftplog file.

CentOS 5 :: Syslog Server For SOHO Infrastructure?

Aug 7, 2011

I have a dual-processor x86 box with CentOS 5 Linux 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5, mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, and tons of storage space. I want to run a syslog solution on this box for a SOHO infrastructure. We've got routers, switches, Windows servers, other Linux boxes, etc. I've looked at syslog-ng, but it seems rather overkill, but I like the idea of storing logs in a MySql database. Is there anything I can yum install?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Syslog-ing Messages From A Particular Host To A Particular Log File

Oct 12, 2009

I've just configured my Linksys RVS-4000 router to syslog messages to remote syslogd server (i.e. my CentOS5 machine). Redirecting messages was easy, but now I'm having difficulties to redirect those same messages received from Linksys to a separate log file. By default, all these messages are logged to /var/log/messages, and after browsing manual pages for syslog, syslog.conf, and syslogd, came to suspect that what I want isn't possible.

May 13, 2010

I installed syslog-ng so I can receive remote logs. this is working however since I disabled syslog on my syslog-ng server I am not logging in /var/log/messages cron and some others.locally)I know this is because my syslog-ng.conf only references remote and not local.How can I edit the syslog-ng.conf file so that I can receive remote and local? I tried this however when adding in portions of the default config, I only receive local and not remote logs anymore. I am forwarding my config.

Ubuntu :: Package Conflicts / Trying To Install Pidgin

May 25, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 64bit on a Gateway md7818u.When trying to install Pidgin today, I found that I could not do so in the software center due to to a "Software Dependencies Cannot Be Resolved" error. So I went to Synaptic and attempted there. One package after another kept saying "dependent on (insert package name here) but will not be installed" so I went to manually install these packages, with the same results, leading me to "libdirac-encoder0" which would install but conflicted with many of my installed programs it said that all had to be removed to install this package, which will allow me to install all of these other packages, which will allow me to install Pidgin.

CentOS 5 Server :: Rotating Named Logs Via Syslog.conf?

OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!

Here is the logging section of my named.conf

OpenSUSE Install :: Autologin - Syslog - Kernel Messages - Console

May 9, 2010

What i'm trying to accomplish seems rather silly but is needed for my little project here.

I'm using OpenSuSE 11.2 as a media center PC and need it to login automatically(console not X). That one i accomplished without problems.

However, after login i can see all the info about the services that were started and that needs to "go away".

One could do a "clear" in the .bash_rc and or .bash_profile but it will still show the login prompt which i don't want to see either (i don't even want to see the blinking cursor as well).

Question: How do i accomplish that so that the login console shows only the "splash screen" without any output of the kernel,rc.status nor the "issue-file"... just a plain blank screen ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Monitor Cannot Handle Video Card Resolution?

Problem is that after the screen comes up to chose the default version or failsafe, my monitor shows no input. If I delete the VGA 0x031 (i think that's the number) on the Options line in the screen where you chose the version, I get my command line interface.

Can I make the blank VGA options permanent?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Handle Kernel Paging Request At Ffffc90010b8000?

Aug 3, 2010

I've been trying to install Opensuse 11.3 from the Kde live cd, but the installation hangs when I'm almost done. Right at the beginning the installation is interrupted right with text that among other things says:

Bug: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffffc90010b8000. After a while though, the installation picks up and continues by itself. I'm then able to complete the necessary steps and I reboot the system so that it can complete the installation.

After reboot there is a new text message that says that the bios does not support EEC memory or something to that effect and then continues with the installation. When it has completed 82% of the autoconfiguration the installation just stops and stays that way.

I've had no problem installing previous releases, from 10.2 up to 11.2, on the same machine.

I've checked md5 sum and also checked the media before proceeding with the installation.

Upon reboot after the first installation step, I also tried the failsafe mode but got the same result.
