Fedora Networking :: Arpwatch Fails To Start At Boot Time

Mar 6, 2010

Arpwatch is failing to start at boot time. I got this message:

arpwatch: bad interface eth0: eth0: no ipv4 address assigned

Once I login into my account, I can (as root) run the arpwatch demon, but it is suppose to run at boot time. After I installed aprwatch, it was working correctly. I do not have an idea of what happens or since when the problem start to happen. I just realize, after a while , that arpwatch was not running. I am running Fedora 12 - 2.6.32.9-67.fc12

Fedora Networking :: How To Prevent Arpwatch From Reporting Changes On 0.0.0.0

Feb 2, 2009

I am running a sever for a local community. There is arpwatch service running and monitoring for new network cards. The problem is that each day I keep getting lots of 'flip flop' reports:

Code:

hostname: <unknown>
ip address: 0.0.0.0
ethernet address: 0:13:e8:43:b1:e7

[code]....

I know where they come from: clients are obtaining ip addresses by DHCP, and initially are sending DHCP requests from 0.0.0.0. I am running arpwatch with a specific option to NOT report such things, but it looks like it is ignored...

Code:

arpwatch -u arpwatch -e admin -N -s 'root (Arpwatch)' -i br0 -n 0.0.0.0/32

Fedora Servers :: HTTPD Fails To Start On Boot

Aug 24, 2010

I'm completely stumped by a problem with httpd in Fedora 13. It fails to start on boot: I can see: Starting htpd: FAILED, in /var/log/boot.log, but I can't find anything else in messages, audit.log or anywhere else that gives me any clue why. The weird thing is that running:
run_init service httpd start
after boot _works_ and the server runs fine, but even when it's running OK,
service httpd status
reports
httpd dead but subsys locked

I'm guessing that the problem somehow relates to selinux, but I can't find anything in the audit logs that gives me a clue. How to turn on more logging so that I can get closer to the problem. I finally discovered the cause. This system was originally configured to use network services directly, without NetworkManager. It had been upgraded a number of times since installation. It seems that over time, if you have turned off NetworkManager, the defaults have changed. Used to be that the network services was 'enabled' by default (hence started at run time). Now, the default is 'disabled'. Httpd couldn't start because there was no network to start on. Enabling network services at boot time fixed this. I guess I should have noticed this. But one might think that httpd failing to start because of the lack of a network might at least give a warning message in the logs about the reason.

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot - Increase Time Interval Of Start Up

Mar 27, 2009

I have installed Fedora10 on my PC which had an XP. Now Fedora waits just 2-3 seconds to press any key to choose between XP and Fedora. Actually if I don't press any key it automatically begins Fedora. How can I increase this time interval?

Fedora Servers :: Mysql At Boot Time In 10 / Get Mysql To Start At Boot?

Jul 28, 2009

I am trying to get mysql to start at boot without any success.

The mysqld scripts works fine when run from the command line, but it does not work when i use the links created by chkconfig. I checked the boot.log and found that mysql starts but then it stops or gets shutdown. This is the log message:

Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /data/mysql [ OK ]
Starting cups: [ OK ]
STOPPING server from pid file /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid
starting DenyHosts: /usr/bin/denyhosts.py --daemon --config=/usr/share/denyho
sts/denyhosts.cfg
090727 04:35:47 mysqld ended

The same init script works fine in Ubuntu.

Software :: Using Flash Drive As Root FS At Boot Time Fails

Nov 29, 2008

I have a flash drive that I want to mount as my root filesystem at boot time. When I'm in linux, I can run `mount /dev/sda1 /mnt`, and the kernel will mount the ext3 FS on the flash drive at /mnt with no problems. From this I assumed I could boot my system with the kernel option 'root=/dev/sda1', but this doesn't work. My kernel has no initrd, and is booted directly by a bootloader. It has no modules, so I know that's not the issue.

The current setup that works consists of a ramdisk that the bootloader loads into RAM before booting the kernel. The kernel detects this ramdisk and the current kernel root option ('root=/dev/ram') mounts the ramdisk as the root fs with no problems.I can see where the kernel detects the flash driveat startup, and I can't think of a reason why I couldn't just mount it as root. I can copy/paste startup logs here if necessary.

Fedora :: Schedule A Process To Start At A Specific Time (not On Start Up)?

Jan 19, 2010

I'm trying to find how to schedule a process to start at a specific time (not on start up). How would I schedule a process/application to start at a specific time (if it matters, it will be a background process). For instance, have process abc start every weekday at 5am. I've done this for windows many times though have only been using linux regularly for a few months and haven't figured out the best way of doing this.

So far the best solution I have is to create a program that will start on boot and have it check the time and sleep until the required time and then start the required process(es) at the required time(s). But this seems more of a hack since I'd expect there to be a proper way of doing this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot From USB Connected External Hard Take Long Time From Loading INITRD Image To Start Boot Process?

Jul 18, 2011

I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.

CentOS 5 :: Ddclient Fails To Start At Boot / What To Do?

Jul 9, 2009

I have installed ddclient for use with dyndns.org.

I can manually run it from the prompt with /etc/rc.d/init.d/ddclient start
and can verify that it works by checking that my IP has succesfully been changed at dyndns.

When I reboot though, during the startup, I get the following:
Starting ddclient: /bin/bash: ddclient: command not found [FAILED]

I am very new to Linux, so I am not sure what or where I should be looking to solve the problem. It seems to me that it must be looking in the wrong spot for ddclient, but I don't know what to check or change to point it at the right place.

Debian Configuration :: Firestarter Fails To Start On System Boot

Jul 11, 2011

I have just recently installed firestarter to get an idea of iptables editing with a GUI. Firestarter works great and I love it, however when I turn my system on, and my system is booting up the terminal displays a "Failed" message when attempting to start up firestarter. Now I have been doing my homework (reserch) and have read that a user will get this error because firestarter trys to load prior to the network manager starting up. I have also read some other variables that can cause this is if you use network manager and have a password on your user account (which I do have) can cause this issue.

However in most cases from what I have read is even though it gives the user a "Failed" startup message, once the user logs in, and is connected to the internet firestarter will actually load the iptables. I did some tests and from what I understand I can see that this is true because I have allowed access to certain torrent trackers, and denied access to others, and I can see some come online. Does firestarter load iptables once the user logs in? Or once it fails to load, does it not load at all unless you manually open/load the application. If firestarter just modifies iptables, then once I save my listings in firestarter then I really don't need it to start up correct?

I am running Debian-Squeeze with apache2. However, apache2 doesn't start at boot time, even though there is of course the required script in init.d. I can start it later on using "/etc/init.d/apache2 start". I have checked the configuration with "apachectl configtest" - giving the answer "Syntax ok". How do I get it to start automatically at boot time?

Ubuntu :: Starting Processes At Boot Time - Don't Start Privoxy?

Apr 27, 2010

I installed and configured privoxy - everything worked nicely when I run it manually by

Quote:
/etc/init.d/privoxy start

After restarting the computer privoxy wasn't start automatically. I checked the links in /etc/rcX.d - are o.k. I installed sysv-rc-conf - shows that for runlevel 2 - 5 privoxy is running. I changed /etc/rc2.d/S20privoxy to /etc/rc2.d/S99privoxy - to start that process at the end. I installed Boot-Up Manager. Privoxy is marked for start automatically. I added in /etc/rc.local line: /etc/init.d/privoxy start

Privoxy still doesn't turn on at boot time and every time I must start it manually. Could you tell me how could I repair this ?

Ubuntu :: X Wont Start When A Monitor Isn't Plugged In At Boot Time?

Jun 18, 2010

I have a system I use as a file server running Ubuntu 10.04. I don't have a screen hooked up to this system. When this system reboots, if there is no screen, X wont start on it. This then prevents me from using VNC to get to the desktop.If a monitor is plugged in at the time it boots, then everything works, and I can then remove the monitor. But moving this monitor between computers and crawling under desks is not enjoyable.How can I fix this so X starts on boot even when no monitor is plugged in?The error I get in /var/log/Xorg.log* looks like this:

grep -EnC2 "EE|WW|fatal|error" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

General :: Start X Server And App At Boot (or Services Load) Time

Oct 14, 2009

I need to start an application (graphical) when the PC start, even before anybody login, and use/launch a specific user. Now only can do this manually; when gdm starts, switch to any text tty [ie. Ctrl + Alt + F1], then I login into the special user, start a X server, export the DISPLAY environment variable, and start the application.

With this steps:
Code:
$X :1 -verbose -nr -nolisten tcp &
# Maybe Metacity -> $ metacity
$export DISPLAY=:1
$JavaApp &
Now i need put this steps (script) in some place to launch the app automatically, and with and specific user [ie. manager].

How can I made it? Maybe in init.d? or an special xinitrc? And how can start the app with the specific user? And, if is possible, who can stop the app when the system going turn off? I have Debian 5.0 and a beginner knowledge of shell script.

Fedora Networking :: F-12 Openvpn Server Does Not Start At Boot

Nov 23, 2009

This was working and stable on f-10 and f-11. Fresh f-12 install including openvpn, Copied /etc/openvpn/* to new system as root from working f-11 syatem. /etc/init.d/openvpn start (and stop) works as advertised HOWEVER when set to start at boot using chkconfig or Services Configuration program, openvpn does not start. I must manually start it every time. When started, it does work without error messages in the log.

I tried removing the NetworkManager-vpn module with no effect. Thought it could somehow be overriding the auto startup of openvpn at boot.
