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'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.
After upgrading to F11 I have had a few problems with some applications most like miro I was able to fix by using yum remove and then reinstalling. It appears that after updating some applications have stayed with the fc10 versions despite fc11 versions being available.
I recently upgraded my x86_64 system from FC8-FC10 using Pre-Upgrade, and here I got some help fixing all the package conflicts that resulted. Following the first reboot after this massive package update, it appears DNS doesn't work in some apps.
I could ping www.yahoo.com, and nslookup www.yahoo.com resolved the name, but firefox and links couldn't. Typing the ip addr that nslookup gives for www.yahoo.com works fine in both firefox and links. Something's obviously wrong with DNS.
I found a workaround for Firefox which is to browse to about:config and set network.dns.disableipv6 = true. Firefox started resolving names after that.
But then I noticed yum is DNS incapable as well. I don't know how to fix it. Here's what I get:
Code: [~]$ sudo yum update Loaded plugins: allowdowngrade, refresh-packagekit http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or service not known')> Trying other mirror.
Does anyone have any additional info on workarounds or fixes for this DNS problem?
The machine in question has a static ip addr, and I have static nameserver addrs in /etc/resolv.conf, corresponding to the static settings provided by my isp.
I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?
This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:
Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.
In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.
I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.
I've been running FC10 with all updates and had downloaded the FC11 DVD. Yesterday I upgraded to FC 11 using the DVD and it appeared that everything went fine. However when I tried to do ayum updateI got the following error. There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum
install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:14) [GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]
go to the yum faq at: [URL] I'm not sure what to do next. I also noticed that all my previously configured repositories are lost.
What is the best method to upgrade Fedora from 8/9 to 10? I have the DVD, and whenever I try to boot from the DVD it locks up the PC after selecting the default language stuff. I've run the media check on the DVD, and it passes with no problems. I am behind a firewall and for some reason the configuration is not allowing YUM to get through the firewall, but Firefox can get through (I have another post for this issue).
I tried doing an upgrade straight from fc5 to fc10. The upgrade seemed to go all right but once it was completed I've noticed some issues. My main issues are these:
1. After the upgrade all my desktop icons have disappeared and I'm not sure how to recover them. (this applies to all user account on a home machine)
2. When I click the right mouse button on the desktop I get no context menu but I do get the menu when I right click on my top or bottom menu bars.
3. When I try to launch any applications, games, etc., I see the icon show up in the bottom menu bar for a few seconds but then it disappears and the application never launches.
Those are the primary problems I'm encountering right now. I know the files in the home directories are still there (I did CTRL-ALT-F2 into a terminal and logged in as root. Normally I would've done CTRL-ALT-F1 but when I did I saw acpid messages and no prompt.) I've looked through the forums here but nothing I came across quite seemed to fit my needs.
After the Upgrade of my Fedora Insatallation (FC 10 => 12) I have some problems with Gnome and the Login via console. The system actually boots fine and all kind of services like Postfix, IMAP, Samba, SSHD, Apache, etc. are avialable normally.
If I try however to work directly on the server I only see the completed Fedora progress icon and not as hoped for, the Login to Gnome. Also the attempt to change to a plain console with ALT-CTRL-F1 fails.
Since actually everything seems to work quite fine, I am somewhat helpless, according to should I look for, to get Gnome and the Console Login working again.
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 recently upgraded my x86_64 system from FC8 to FC10 using Pre-Upgrade. (related blog link) It appears that the upgrade process installed a steaming pile of i386 packages that are duplicates of existing x86_64 packages. I now get update errors because of this package clash. I have searched the fora and the most progress I've been able to make so far is: I apparently had 8 unfinished yum transactions so I did yum-complete-transaction 8 times and have no more incomplete transactions.
The output of package-cleanup --dupes is not very helpful:
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 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 recently upgraded from FC7 to FC10 (Also, the Kernel from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168).I did the upgrade through Yum (First installed the fc10 rpms, then did yum upgrade).Now the new Kernel won't boot.These are the options in GRUB for the new Kernel
I hope this is the right section, it looks like though. I have a small nas ( via artigo a2000 ) with 2 sata hd 1tb each with raid 1 and lvm on top configured and working great.
sda1 and sdb1 ==> md0 raid1 for /boot sda2 and sdb2 ==> md1 raid1 for swap sda3 and sdb3 ==> md2 raid1 as physical volume then volume group and lvs on top ( / is a logial volume of these )
I wish to upgrade the current fedora 12 32bit installation I have on it doing a fresh install. But because I have a lot of data on md2 ( 600GB worth ) which I don't want to copy across somewhere else first, I need to know how ( i am pretty sure i can ) to mount md2 during the installation. This way I can use the data I already have on it.
Automatic upgrade ver 10 to 11 Have a large drive that is shared over Windows domain.This was renamed from /media/drive/ to /media/7534179143A7E34 All the users in Windows domain can not access the files or folders on the Fedora server - Samba setup. Why was the deive renamed and is this causing problems. I reshared the folders on the drive but still cannot access the drive. Where do I start to fault find please.
I have upgraded one of the computers on my network to Fedora 14 (previously Mandriva 2010.1). There's a directory on another machine that I want to mount on this one. The directory can be mounted OK on two other machines in the network (including one running Fedora 13) and, before the upgrade could be mounted on this one, so the nfs server is OK.
If I try to mount manually I get the following:
[root@lipwig Documents]# mount -v 192.168.8.4:/backup /mnt/librarian/ mount: no type was given - I'll assume nfs because of the colon mount.nfs: timeout set for Tue Feb 8 12:17:00 2011 mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'vers=4,addr=192.168.8.4,clientaddr=192.168.8.12' mount.nfs: mount(2): Operation not permitted mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'addr=192.168.8.4' mount.nfs: prog 100003, trying vers=3, prot=6
/etc/hosts has the names and ip addresses of all the machines on the network so the reverse dns lookup (which I have fallen foul of in past years) shouldn't be an issue. So I'm kind of out of ideas. I don't recall there being any problem accessing this mount with Fedora 13 .
