I am trying to find a best tool to track configuration files changes. I did find some information about osec and mactime, but, it seems, that they are not included in fedora/rpmfusion package databases. is there any tool that can be installed as a package?
we have a weird problem with our opensuse 11.2 server installation.
We want to set up a LDAP Server using the Yast-LDAP Server configuriation tool.
This indeed already worked weeks ago until....this week. Maybe some updates??!
I do not know what happend exactly. The server just does not want to start again and throws following error:
Starting ldap-serverstartproc: exit status of parent of /usr/lib/openldap/slapd: 1 failed
This happend after a little check of the configuration, but without a change, with Yast. Google delivered only "reinstall your box"-answers.
So.. i did that. And now the "mystical" part: The SAME ERROR occurs with a fresh vanilla system with a brand new and simple configuration (certificats, database, pw...the first Yast config dialog...). I did not change the way i set it up.
I remember, when i did this the first time with 11.2 on that machine, when no problems occured...everything was running out of the box (except the "use commen server certificate" option...).
I am new to using OpenLDAP on OpenSUSE with the yast configure tool. I have used Openldap on Fedora before and there was a slapd.conf file that I could modify. It appears that the yast does something different. Anyway I need to find out what the rootdn password is, but I cannot find it since there is no slapd.conf file.
I encrypted my home partition with the YaST Partitioner tool, but now I can't access it anymore. After I encrypted it I rebooted the machine and thought that it would prompt me a password field to access the partition, but now I can't access it at all. I tried "mount -t ext4 /dev/sda7 /home" which gives me that error after I entered the password: "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda7, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so"
The info I get from "dmesg | tail" is: "EXT4-fs (sda7): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem" Before I encrypted it I converted the /home partition from ext3 to ext4 without any problems and it worked properly. After playing around with it I also discovered that /dev/sda7 got wiped out of /etc/fstab, but I entered it again.
I'm using openSUSE 11.4 x86_64. Today I came home from work and opened up Banshee... and to my surprise, nothing came out of the speakers. This morning everything worked just fine and my computer was left untouched since then. I found out that sounds works fine in Ubuntu and Windows 7, but in openSUSE... nothing. Well I tried deleting my sound card in YaST, and then reconfigured it. I used the Quick Automatic Setup option and then played a test sound. It worked so I opened Banshee again and picked a song to play... and still nothing.
Running speaker-test in Terminal returns no errors and no sound. In superuser terminal it returns "Playback open error: -111,Connection refused" and mplayer (in superuser terminal) returns "[AO_ALSA] Playback open error: Connection refused."
Are there some additional steps I should take to diagnose and/or troubleshoot the problem? I only know the problem is native to openSUSE, my speakers and sound card are both functional and sound works fine in Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7.
As part of my testing, I need to find a tool that will write/read IO to a volume. I need it to fill the volume and then read and verify that the write was successful. hroughput stats would be a plus, but right now, IO verification is a must.I need the volume to write, read, verify, then repeat until the volume is full.Can anyone point me to a free tool that can manage this?
Is there any Linux tool to create new or modify exiting key/value pairs in text configuration files? For example, to change a setting in xorg.conf, or change something in etc/networking/interfaces? I know it could be done by sed or by perl scripts, but it could be easier to have a program for this purpose. There are many difficulties for this job that the program should consider, and I am facing nearly all of them:
- Some configuration files may have sections. Like in Windows-type INI files (for example: "[something]"), or like Section in xorg.conf. More sections with the same name can occur, like in xorg.conf.
- If the key/value pair originally does not exist, then the program should add it. But not to the end of the file, but tothe end of a predefined section.
- Config files can have remark lines. Remark text can be even at the same line than the key/value pair. After modifying the value, the original remark text should not change at the end of the line. The remark-starting symbol is not always. - The values in configuration files are not always simple numbers or simple words, but in rare cases, they are composed by more words, for example: item=name address phone
And of course, we can have remark at the end, like this: item=name address phone # remark text
- The key-value separator depends on the file. Some files use "key=value" format, some other use "key value" format, or even "key1 key2 value", like xorg.conf. The as separator can also occur.
- Case sensitivity can also be an issue.
- Sometime to desired task is not to modify a value, but to add or remove a line beginning remark to a certain line.
I think that managing all these possible cases by a perl or sed program is nearly impossible. I begun to write a C program, but maybe there is already one?
I have a Brother MFC-7440N which has Linux drivers, but I can't get useful scans yet. It prints fine, but the only scanning software I've found so far, XSane and a utility just called "Scanner Utility" are both useless.
XSane is no good because it crashes every time I try to scan something.
Scanner Utility has a few problems. Unless I set the paper size to "Legal," it keeps cutting off the bottom few inches of my (US letter-size) document. It's the same, regardless of whether I scan from the auto document feeder, or with the original on the glass. Also the orientation is screwed up. When I select "Portrait," the scan comes out rotated 90 degrees, exactly the opposite of what I'd expect.
I also don't like that there's no way to go back and change the scan settings. If I want to scan another document or at a different resolution, I have to quit Scan Utility and run it again.
Neither utility will scan to a .pdf. XSane gives the option, but like I said, it crashes every time I try to scan something.
Is there a scanning program available for Ubuntu that actually works, & will scan to a .pdf? Brother doesn't supply any scanning software for Linux, just drivers, so I have to find some 3rd-party utility.
I'd like to measure network latency for SNMP GET request. There is a free command line tool time which can be used to find timing statistics for various commands. For example it can be used with snmpget in the following way:$ time snmpget -v 2c -c public 192.168.1.3 .188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.10.2IF-MIB::ifInOctets.2 = Counter32: 112857973real 0m0.162suser 0m0.069ssys 0m0.005sAccording to the manual, statistics conists of:

Have open suse 11.2 on a laptop, everything works fine except installing software i've downloaded. trying to use RPM downloads. finally something worked, connected to internet and software manager, Yast, decided to work right, got a bunch of stuff i needed( open office, etc) but cannot find my downloads in yast, installer. how do i add, to installer? I have tried many times in vain to install via Make and make install, etc commands

Also, I'm not able to install ipp5.3 and I'm getting the same error ERROR: ERROR: Unable to find rpm tool, please add its location to your PATH and restart installation
I have inherited a web configuration tool based on mojoportal (which uses C#). As the web server hosting this site is on a Linux machine (currently Ubuntu + mono), I would like to recreate it in a more Linux-natural environment.
The web application I inherited needs to allow creation of configuration profiles for other Linuxes(including setting their IP tables, QoS and many other network protocols). These profiles are downloaded by the Linux clients and a local parser does the configuration accordingly.
The main properties I need are: * Receive and display a lot of structured data to the user (i.e. iptables chains or QoS hierarchies) and of course process it * Manage several users with different permissions * Use MySQL as the database * Allow FTP access to receive configuration files created * Display monitoring data and graphs (a low-level NMS)
I do not need forums, blogs or any other user input apart from entering data in the forms (possibly a text editor, but that's about it)
I used to be very proficient in Python and Perl (so am sure it would be easy to regain these abilities) and am versed in SQL. I know HTTP and CGI but never worked with PHP.
I have Preinstalled Xp on my system.I have installed Solaris in one of my unused partition.when i installed the fedora 12 i didnot get the options for solaris booting though i have used different partition for solaris and fedora.How can i get the options for solaris or else i have made a mistake in installing fedora. In either case please guide me though how irritating it may be to guide a newbie.Also if i want to use Archlinux with all three above how can i do it.
