Fedora Servers :: VNC In FC10 Tweaks - Apple Standard Client Is Slow Over Wifi
Jan 1, 2009
I'm relatively new to Linux, but willing to take a plunge and climb the steep learning curve! I've recently installed Fedora 10 on a spare box I'd like to have running in the lounge by the TV as a TV recorder. Before starting out with MythTV, I would like to get the box running the basics... and hit no major snags with display / audio drivers. I've finally managed to connect to the box via VNC from my macbook over the wireless network. The Apple standard client is slow over wifi, so have started using 'Chicken of the VNC' as the client. At the server end, I intalled vnc-server via yum. I've also tweaked things in ~/.vnc/xstartup so that my default window manager over vnc is gnome.
I was forced to reinstall fc10 a couple of days back and from them the bootingup is really slow(takes more then 1 minute to show login screen). before the reinstall, it was quite fast. i dont know what went wrong.
I'm having trouble getting my wifi devices to work on my 128bit WEP network. I have a new Thinkpad T400, with an internal Intel PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN. I also have some cardbus cards: a Lucent ORiNOCO Gold, a Linksys Wireless-G, and a TRENDnet TEW-421PC. I have them set up as interfaces eth2, eth1, and eth3. (The TRENDnet isn't recognised as a network card at all, so no interface for it.) I have installed the latest firmware for the Linksys card.
The /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* files are virtually identical for all of them, differing only in the HWADDR and DEVICE lines. So here's the behaviour:
1. The Lucent card comes up just fine. 2. The internal 5100AGN and the Linksys cards won't come up, and watching with iwconfig shows that they're either associated with my AP OR they've got an encryption key set -- but not both. 3. When trying to bring up the 5100AGN, I get the following messages:
iwlagn: index 0 not used in uCode key table iwlagn: index 3 not used in uCode key table
/var/log/messages shows DHCPDISCOVER requests being sent, but they're bound to fail since the association with the AP with WEP isn't being completed. And yes, the ifcfg-* files really *are* identical except for the DEVICE and HWADDR lines. The /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file correctly maps the interfaces to the MAC addresses. So why does my antique ORiNOCO card work and thew newer ones fail? How can I track down what's being done wrong/not being done?
just as the title states i need to upgrade my os from fc4 to fc10 first let me say i have no physical access to the box. all i have is root ssh access to it. So i need to know the best way of upgrading that will be safe. before i do the upgrade the server will be backed up so i will not loose any files. if the upgrade fails the data center will reload the os with what i need on it. but i would rather not have to format.
I want to backup my apache website using tar. I want to make sure all the permissions and such stay the same so that if I restore a website, it's ready to go exactly as it had been.I am using the following command and would like to know if there is anything else I should neeed to do?
tar --xattrs cvzf backup.tgz /path-to-webserver-files
Now my other question is since tar doesn't store absolute paths, when I run the restore I have to be in the root directory? In another words if I run the command in a user directory will tar do something retarded like encode the paths as ../path-to-webserver or will it just be path-to-webserver so that when I run the restore from the / folder it will automatically go into the right place?
So my server running FC4 died last night and I decided to go ahead with the long-awaited upgrade to FC10 while I was rebuilding my server. I use my server for a number of things including, but not limited to: router, firewall, web server, mail server... I have a typical configuration process that I have followed since before fedora, and it has worked well for me up through FC4, but my usual config process doesn't work on FC10.
First of all, I don't want SELinux running, I didn't see an option to not install it during the FC10 setup, so how to I properly disable or uninstall it afterwards? Second, I was unable to even configure the server to route traffic from my internal network to the web, here's the process I usually go through for this:
I don't have a static IP from my ISP, so I'm not quite sure how to add the default route. I think I need to do something like "route add default gw xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx eth1" where eth1 is my external NIC, correct?
What else do I need to do to route traffic? I noticed that I wasn't even able to ping my server from the internal network even though they are on the same subnet, my server's internal NIC has an address of 192.168.7.1 and my computer on the network has an address of 192.168.7.2. If I can get this going to I have internet access again at the very least, I can move forward with the web server, email, etc.
I recently setup a file sharing server with FC10 running Samba...
I got it running perfectly and it ran great for a few weeks. I was working on the machine today and tried to reboot it and noticed that it was stuck on FC10's new boot screen. I pressed the esc key and saw that the boot process was stuck on the smb service...
I don't get any errors and the machine doesn't freeze up or anything, it just hangs on the smb service and won't continue with the boot...
Is there anyway that I can get the system to skip the smb service so that I can get into the system? I don't know what's changed or what's causing this sudden hang in the system at boot.
I tried the ubuntu live CD to attempt to go in and edit the /etc/rc5.d scripts to try and skip the smb service start but I am not sure where to look for it...
I made a big mistake on my FC10 machine-while trying to resolve a way to install vlc- I wrote the following command:"yum erase rpm lib".After restarting the machine fedora did not load... (might be funny- I laughed...).Do you know of a way top recover from this state? (I have the liveCD disk),
I have a lab of 10 computers with ips from 192.168.1.120 to 192.168.1.130 the server's Ip is 192.168.1.116When I am on client computer I type the server's Ip address on the browser and it works. All i want is that instead of entering my servers Ip I could just enter an address like: example.lan
I'm having a problem getting BIND to start after doing the FC10->FC11 upgrade. Others have been reporting some bad symbolic links, but this isn't that problem. I've searched the forums here, but I don't see anything like this anywhere.
I have been struggling with this for the past two days and I can't seem to figure it out.SIMPLE GOAL: use subdomains with my wildcard Rapid SSL cert on Apahce2. This is not a chained certificate.Currently my default SSL virtual host, listening on 443 works fine. So, https://www.myDomain.com is recognized correctly by all browsers. But, the below virtual host listening on port 1025 is not coming across to the browser securely. The page renders, but the browsers do not see it as encrypted SSL.
I have a Java application that is used to create PCB layouts called 'DIY Layout Creator'. When I run it on FC10 it is really slow, 7 seconds to render a new object. If I run it on Ubuntu, it works well. I have done some searching and it looks like it is a video driver problem in X windows. FC10 xorg-X11-server is at 1.5.3 where Ubuntu has 1.6.0. FC10 is a the most FC10 version. I tried to update my Xorg to an FC11 version but it fails to install due to dependencies. Other that upgrading to FC12, are there any other options to correct this bug?
It appears that my ISP is blocking port 80, so I can't set up a proper website on my home computer. I'd like to choose a different port to use (they block 443 also), and I'm not sure how to do this with Fedora (or any Linux flavor for that matter
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed. I some limited sucched following the this post t=1621331 this got the card working but it was very very slow over 70% packet loss to the WIFIrouter. 1.

I've been looking for a tweak that would allow me to store temp and log files in ram. I've found a few that involved editing the fstab file, but they were either Ubuntu articles or they were over a year old and perhaps didn't apply to Fedora 14.I hear there is also a 'noatime' command that can help speed up processes by telling the kernel not to saved when files are accessed.And what are the advantages and disadvantages of noatime, and writing log/tmp files to ram?
I wish to prevent the samba messages (mainly nmbd and winbindd) from appearing in the system log (/var/log/messages). I want to allow samba logging to the standard samba logfiles, but prevent the syslog getting clogged up by samba. I added syslog = 0 to smb.conf and reloaded the config but the messages were still appearing. I also tried the following (and restarted the syslog via /sbin/service syslog restart) # Suppress messages from samba.
For interests sake the messages I'm getting are below (I'm not concerned about the messages themselves, I can chase them up at my leisure via the samba logs) Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: query_name_response: Multiple (2) responses received for a query on subnet xx.yy.z.zz for name DOMAIN<1d>. Mar 18 09:58:29 SERVER nmbd: This response was from IP xx.yy.z.zz, reporting an IP address of xx.yy.z.zz.
My wireless seems to be fast for a good 30secs then bang takes good while to load the next page almost as if it's disconnecting and then reconnecting/scanning reconnecting. Why cant it stay connected. I have WAP PSK security here is my network setting please let me know if I should change any of them:(side not is there a way to fix this problem occuring so frequently it says on the wiki that it should only occur once in a whilce https:[url].....
I have configured server ubuntu 11.04. Everything works fine, but there is a need for some clients to connect local hard drive. What should I do? How and what modules are added to the ltsp-image? How to register in the fstab on the client? Maybe I'm going the wrong way?
1) Can be integrated into web browser (so when click on chat the a window will open for chat with technical support executive:- It will be basically used for TS)
2) Must Have option to transfer file between costumer and TS execut
3) No installation on part of client
Basically it chat support as any other company on net... Like Symantec and all(Not That big thought)Any one know or have experience in this(setting up is relatively simple for me i need info on any particular software that i should try)Currently thinking about experimenting with ejabber... If that a bad choice i will loose lot of time and be behind schedule by miles.
I have setup a 389 ldap server on fedora 11 that works fine on linux clients. Now I want to connect windows xp clients on it. I made it using pgina, but I would like to make it work without third party software.
I have FC14 running NIS master and the Solaris 10 (192.168.0.10) client is able to use authenticate. However, when I try to change the passwd (via yppasswd) on the Solaris host it reports "Permission denied".
On the FC14 host, the syslogs show that the passwd is invalid: Code: Dec 26 22:09:49 linux rpc.yppasswdd: update test (uid=502) from host 192.168.0.10 rejected Dec 26 22:09:49 linux rpc.yppasswdd: Invalid password.
The Solaris host has been reconfigured to generate md5 passwds and the linux host the same (via authconfig). Indeed when I set a local user's passwd on the Solaris host, the passwd (the shadow entry) looks like a MD5 passwd (starts: $1). I don't know if this is related to my NIS problem, but when I generate the SAME passwd on linux, the shadow entry is different.
A. I can print to this printer. Check. B. I can print to this printer from a Windows client. C. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get a mac OS X 10.6.5 clientto work.
The closest I got was setting up Cups from the apple client, and printing a test page from the CUPS webpage. Nothing else.I have tried just about everything, forwards and backwards.I get almost always the same result.My printer pauses when I try to print to the server -- I hit resume, it pauses. It just doesn't complete a single job.
I'm new LDAP kind of stuff.I want to configure LDAP server and Client on windowsXP. could you tell me which Open source LDAP Server and client are best fit for windowsXP. Is OpenLdap not suitable for windows?
I am running NFS and NIS servers in my FC8. Clients are also running FC8. Everything was working fine. I could login remotely to server as well as clients. Suddenly (few days ago) a problem started. I can not login remotely to client machines. I did not do anything. I can login to server remotely, but not the client. When I try to login, it accept password and nothing happens. Also, when I try to login from server to client same thing happens. We share the home directory of the server with client. Another question: there two type of nfs server nfs-user-server and nfs-kernel-server. I just use gui to set up the NFS. I don't know which one I am running. Is there any way to find out which nfs I am running?
Setting of my NFS as following and I am failed to mount client and get connected the both computer using Fedora 11; server ~(tower) and client (note book)
NFS Server setting ... root@tomcat shylock_1]# cat /etc/sysconfig/iptables # Firewall configuration written by system-config-firewall # Manual customization of this file is not recommended. *filter .....
Please make note selinux demon has been disabled.

After making several attempt I cannot mount share on client. What I am missing here? OR is there problem with F11 with NFS server? While throwing everything including sink... I ran tcpdump on server while issuing mount command from client; I got following tcp dump.
I have squid running on F12 fully updated. Pretty much stock config except bigger cache size.
Over time it seems to start lagging and occupying more memory. Currently using ~400Mb after a couple of months. I'm sure its causing some lag / refreshes because if I turn if off and go direct to internet the same site I had to hit refresh on, loads instantly.
Going through the logs in /var/log/squid I don't see anything suspicious with the untrained eye, whats a better way of debugging it to see where/why the delays are happening? Its a single user setup (for fun really lol) so theres a lot of misses in access.log. cache.log just has a handful of bad img headers which does not line up with lagging websites.code...
