Red Hat / Fedora :: XFS Font Server And XWindows Environment

Feb 8, 2010

I am having a problem with the xfs font server and the Xwindows environment. I'm using the RHL9 kernel with RTLinux, the application has been running fine for years on multiple systems, but recently we changed CPUs and now I'm periodically getting microscopic fonts (1 out of 5 reboots). The other times the fonts come up perfectly normal. I've tried changing settings for xfs and XF86Config but nothing seems to work. I've checked the system logs but haven't found anything. I'm running out of things to look for.

Server :: Multiple Users Logging Into Same Windows Server And Using Xwindows?

May 18, 2010

I have an issue with users logging into a server. There are multiple (5 or so) database admins that have to log into a windows 2003 server and from there log into a red hat server. Once they are in the rhel box they execute an app (let's say xclock) that gives them an xwindows session on their desktop. Currently only one person can do this at a time, but they have asked me to configure it to allow multiple users to log into the red hat box from the windows server and run an xwindow.

Red Hat :: Duplicating A RHEL 5.1 32bit Server On RHEL 5.4 64 Bit

Dec 9, 2009

I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Minimum Configuration Files That Would Be Needed To Rebuild RHEL Server?

Jan 8, 2010

What are the bare minimum configuration files that would be needed to rebuild a RHEL server?We are thinking about creating a generic base image and then just copying over the necessary files (fstab, hosts, networking, etc) to get a failed system back up and running in the least amount of time possible. I am fairly new to Linux and have suggested that we have a share on a redundant server that is /server_configs/Svr_name/*.* (names are subject to change and *.* would be all of the pertinent config files to make a fresh build customized enough to emulate the failed server).Is this even possible and/or plausible?

Programming :: Draw To Screen Without Using A GUI / Xwindows?

Mar 10, 2010

I am very new to Linux and I hope someone on here can provide some help.

I am am developing an embedded application on Linux 2.6 that will hopefully run without a GUI. There will be no user input just simply displaying information to the user in a graphical form. I will be drawing the screen in C and outputting this to the display.

I don't know how to draw to the display? From reading and talking with others, I think I can write to the frame buffer and that will output to the display, but I am not sure this is rite. If it is correct, can someone explain how this is done? Is there another way to draw to the screen without using the windows API?
