Red Hat :: Centos/Red Hat - List Of Programs They Keep Updated?

Oct 16, 2010

I'm guessing Red Hat (and therefor Centos) backport programs like newer Open Offices. Is this true? If so, is there a list of programs that they maintain actively?

General :: CentOS - Safe To Remove The First Kernel In The Installed List To Save Having Two Kernels Being Updated Everytime?

May 8, 2011

When I run yum list installed command the output shows two kernels:


Would it therefore be safe to remove the first kernel in the installed list to save having two kernels being updated everytime I run yum update? Or is the PAE kernel dependant upon the original?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrading Only Updated Programs?

Mar 21, 2010

I use Factory repositories of KDE4 and there are new releases almost every day in that repository. Although I believe that there are useful updates in the packages, I don't think they are really that crucial that I should update them every day.

When I do update, I usually use graphical frontend and select from menu: Packages >> All Packages >> Update if newer version available. That includes all the updates available either for the program or the package.

I'd really like to be able to sort out these packages that have updates for the programs available. Is there any way to do it?

CentOS 5 :: Get Centos To Recognize Updated Packages?

Jun 24, 2009

I have a copy of the DVD Iso for centos 5.3. I downloaded the updated packages to the Centos directory and then ran the repomanage perl script to remove the old files from the directory. I then ran the createrepo and the new iso image with the script code below.

rm -f CentOS_1.0.0.iso
echo "Updating repository"
dvd_discinfo=`head -1 $rhelBuild/.discinfo`
echo "$dvd_discinfo


I am using VMWare to test the build, so I have the cd pointing to the iso image. I get the CentOS to start up find and dandy asking the questions for the interactive boot. It gets thru the stage of checking dependencies and then when it starts to copy down the image to the "harddrive" that is when the problem occurs.

One of the updated files is file-4.17-15.el5_3.1.i386.rpm (file-4.17-15.el5.i386.rpm was removed using repomanage), but the loader is looking for the removed file. I've looked thru any dependencies, but nothing specific for the removed file, all are asking for /usr/bin/file with no specific version numbers. I have run a rpm -test on all the rpms, but haven't been able to look thru that to see if there is a specific request for the version.

I did try this, but it just moved on to the next file. I did not replace the file version, but then it found another problem that was the same as this, the updated file is in the repo, but it is requesting the old version. I looked thru the fileslist and others to see if maybe that was the problem, but they were updated to the new versions.

Ubuntu :: Create A List, From LiveCD, Of What Programs Are Installed On HDD?

Jan 4, 2011

I made this thread last night~[URL]... Because my Ubuntu failed, and i have no idea why. I hadnt done anything different or risky.. and Ive no idea what to do. So, It appears Im going to have to do a re-install. Which, I really dont mind too much... (especially with Ubuntu) But It will stink if i *again* lose all my bookmarks , and lose track of all my installed programs. The programs, not as much of an issue as the bookmarks in my browser.. I would like to know, If I can somehow access the HDD from the LiveCD, So that I can create just a simple text list of all programs installed on the hdd? I cannot access my HDD except through the LiveCD So is there a way I can do this? Some kind of simple command I can toss into terminal, and have it output me a text file of all programs installed? or something? I really am totally clueless on how I would be able to save my chromium bookmarks.

Server :: CentOS 5.3 - Easiest Way To Keep Software Updated?

Mar 17, 2010

I have somewhere between 8 and 12 servers, spread amongst different webhosts, all running CentOS 5.3. Everything on the servers has been compiled from source:
> EngineX, PHP, MySQL, Munin, etc

I compile from source because I usually run ./configure to modify the source before installing. What would be the easiest way to keep the server software updated? I am considering creating custom packages from a server which I would keep up to date manually. Then use Capistrano or Puppet to install those packages on all of my servers.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Automatically Updated Systems Without Configured

Aug 11, 2011

I came to a "weird" situation when I saw in yum log files that several centOS systems have been automatically updated via yum. I checked the following:
1. chkconfig for init services that could upgrade the system: only yum-updatesd
2. In the config file of yum-updatesd.conf the do_update function is set to no.
3. If an updated made manually by a user
Where else should I look or how this update happened?

CentOS 5 Server :: Updated Fresh 5.3 Xen Kernel And PAE Support Disappeared?

Aug 26, 2009

I have installed CentOS 5.3 with Xen on a PowerEdge 2650 machine with 6GB of RAM. As usual, PAE was already enabled so I did not have any problem with utilising all of the memory. However after upgrading to the latest release of the kernel (2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen), memory available decreased to 4GBs. Then I switched back to the old kernel and 6GB was there. Then finally have switched back to the new kernel and 6GB is again there. So now PAE seems to be enabled but what concerns me is the inconsistent behaviour. (Also I am not sure the reason was the upgraded kernel.)

CentOS 5 :: Updated To 2.6.18-164.1 UDEV Failed Udevd-event[1361]?

May 12, 2010

I haven't updated my centos box for almost about a year, my theory is if it ain't broke don't fix it.These last two weeks I've been replacing hardware, a motherboard, memory, processor, and a hard-disk. Everything worked fine with the current 2.6.18-128.1.10, but I decided that I should upgrade to the latest along with all the new packages. But in doing so I would need to recompile the driver module for the raid controllers, rr1740. So I recompiled them using the 2.6.18-164.1 build while I was in kernel 128. When I was done, I restarted the machine and when it booted to the new 164 kernel, it came back very long error messages but here's what I can remember off the top of my head.

Like installers in windows? or it is possible only through terminal?is there experience notes how to install things in linux? after i download something i am completely lost what to do next and how to check if this version is sutable for my version of linux etc. Trying to search internet gives nothing. Also I have this problem that my resolution is too high. so fonts are to small i cannot spend time in linux because my eyes start hurting. I use GNOMEThere are resolutions like 1280 x 960 next is 1440 x 900 1440x900 is sutable for my form of monitor.But 1280 960 is for more square like monitore so if i choose this resolution it looks bad. if i choose 1440 its too little. As it is max resolution for my monitor.In windows i use resolution 1280 x 768 how can i setup that in linux. Also in driver or something it says Ati 3600 series.
