General :: How To Install CentOS With Lesser RPMs?

Jan 30, 2010

I have been challenged to install CentOS occupying just 200 MB. As for now, I installed the OS with only first CD.

Just put :


under %package directive in ks.cfg. I can see the space as of now is:


# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 13G 740M 12G 9% /
/dev/sda1 99M 12M 83M 12% /boot
tmpfs 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm

I need to make it to atleast 300MB.I can see those RPM lying in Linux Box:


df -hyum remove 389*df -hyum remove *ldap*df -hrpm -qa --qf '%11{SIZE} %{NAME}
' | sort -k1n
0 basesystem
0 filesystem


I will remove java, selinux-* but what other package I can remove.

Note: I dont need any application to run but just bare OS.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Any Rpms From Custom Appliance Build

Jun 15, 2011

We have an appliance with image being installed from CD/DVD installation
This appliance image is based on CentOS 4.7 kernel/installer/etc. Everything works fine, we ship this product for about 2 years. Recently I had to move it (port everything) to CentOS 5.5 Everything went fine and it works fine except one minor thing )) We can't install it from CD/DVD image yet. Actually it start fine, finds kickstart file, creates partitions correctly, copies install image to harddrive, but fails the next step when it tries to install RPM's

The message we get:

the file termcap-5.5-1.20060701.1.noarch.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require re-installation"

CentOS 5 :: Yum Install Of Nvidia Rpms From ATrpm Fails Due To Vmlinuz Filename

Oct 16, 2009

I have installed Centos 5.3 64 bit version and run yum update so the system is up to date. However, I have noticed the kernel version that is installed is:

uname -a
Linux elektra.chemresearch 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and when attempting to install from the nvidia driver I get this message:

yum install nvidia-graphics169.07 nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-`uname -r`
Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 is needed by package 1:nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5-169.07-94.el5.x86_64 (atrpms)

Now, yum says the kernel is up to date so how can I get the nvidia driver rpms to install? The entries in /boot are:


I have checked to make sure that the update repo is enabled. There were quite a few updates applied after the initial installation and the initial kernel was updated as the yum log indicates and also the entries in /boot.

General :: Lesser Known Ubuntu Desktop Applications

May 7, 2010

this Ubuntu software center comes with 100s of applications of all types.In this version they have disabled rating, making it hard to find how good it is.I found gnome-shell today, that seemed awesome. There are other ones, less well known, For eg, Abiword is far better than Open Office Org Word processor in many ways. (Altho' I dont like word processors themselves.)What are the other less well known applications that you use and like. One application per answer.

General :: Getting All RPMs By 'yum Install Pkg1 Pkg2 Pkg3' To Install On Offline System ?

Jun 12, 2011

I need to somehow do a yum installation (or equivalent of) on a system that is offline with no access to the internet. (I do have access to another Linux system that has internet access, but the Linux installations on both systems have different packages installed and enabled.)

Let's say the command to enter is 'yum install pkg1 pkg2 pkg3' (the documentation for some applications I need indicate the installation instructions this way, and not as the actual RPMs I need). Is there a way for me to run that on my offline system?

e.g. one way I can think of is to run that command on the online system, somehow if possible take note of what RPMs get installed, then transfer them to the offline system via USB and install all the RPMs via rpm command.

The problem with my above idea is that the two systems have different packages enabled, so even if yum on the online system shows a few dependencies being downloaded, I could run download and install all these RPMs and their dependencies on the offline system only to find several more missing dependencies, and dependencies of those dependencies.

CentOS 5 :: Finding A List Of RPMS With Known Vulns?

Aug 11, 2009

Is there a list of RPMs with known vulnerabilities? I was hoping to run some scripts across the list of currently installed packages vs such a list of vulnerable, to get an idea of what systems need attention. And no, just updating everything is neither an option, nor possible. My servers don't have access (nor do I want them to) to the outside world. Further, being production systems, I can't cause a disruption outside of scheduled down time, and due to running commercial software I can't upgrade some packages due to vendor support issues.

CentOS 5 :: Duplicate Rpms In Base And Updates?

Jun 29, 2010

There appears to be three rpms duplicated between the base repo and the updates repo:


This causes a big problem for Spacewalk as the packages are non-unique among channels.

I'm assuming these should be in base but not updates?Can they be removed to address this issue?

CentOS 5 :: Part Of VLC 0.9.9 Broken With The Latest RPMs From Dag

Mar 31, 2011

Aside from a few minor issues, I've been happy with VLC 0.9.9.

I recently did a yum update to get to Centos 5.5. I've got yum pointed to Dag.

Everything worked fine, until I restarted VLC 0.9.9.

In the update it looks like ffmpeg was updated to the 6.X branch, x264, and how vlc 0.9.9 was recompiled.

wait wait wait.. let me clarify, vlc 0.9.9 still works, but a key function in it that i use has broken.

I am able to do a yum downgrade on x264 and ffmpeg, but I am unable to downgrade VLC because it tells me there is no down grade path. How do I go about requesting the previous version of VLC be added back to Dags RMP site?

I spent sometime hacking on things the last 2 days, and was able to compile using the same ./configure options that were compiled from Dag with ffmpeg 5.2, and x264 and I get them to compile cleanly. VLC 0.9.9 source compiles and the errors I'm hitting go away.

I don't think the ffmpeg 6.X rmp is broken, i just think its to new for vlc 0.9.9 and breaks certain functionality.

CentOS 5 :: Caching Yum Rpms To Update Multiple Nodes?

Dec 3, 2010

As I was updating machines today, I was wondering... Is there some way to cache the RPM files locally that yum is grabbing? Like many, I have a number of VMs I run, and it most updates are the same between the nodes. I'm guessing I'd need some sort of http cache? Just looking for pointers, not sure what I'm looking for, however.

Software :: Creating A Graphical Sudo Application For The Lesser Window Managers?

Oct 31, 2010

I dislike dependency ridden applications or applications that do something useful designed for a specific window manager. So I am starting a thread specifically for requests for applications in Gnome and KDE that aren't immediately available in XFCE, Fluxbox,Blackbox, IceWM, LXDE etc. For instance, I am personally creating a graphical sudo application for the lesser window managers. What other applications would you like to see? this is NOT a request for applications for Linux is general, ONLY ones already available in Linux.

General :: Downgrade And Remove Rpms In The Same Command?

Mar 22, 2011

I have a problem where in order to satisfy RPM dependencies, I need to remove packages and downgrade them in the same command. Imagine the following situation Before

A v2.0 depends on B,C
B v2.0 depends on C > 1.0
C v1.1


A v1.0 depends on C
C v 1.0

If I issue a

$ rpm -Uvh --oldpackage Av1.0.rpm Cv1.0.rpm

it will fail with "B depends on C > 1.0" If I issue a

$ rpm -e B

it will fail with "A requires B" so I appear to be in a catch-22. The obvious solution is to use a "--nodeps" and remove B before doing the downgrade, but I am creating these commands programmatically so I was hoping to use dependency resolution as a sanity check against an incorrect script. Is there any way to perform this downgrade without breaking the RPM dependency sanity checks by force?
