Software :: Upgrading RHEL 5 Kernel 2.6.18-164 To

Jan 11, 2010

Was upgrading to the newest kernel in RHEL5 from 2.6.18-164 to 2.6.18-164.10.1 but when I rebooted the machine it gave me these errors.

Unable to access resume device(/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)
mount: could not find filesystem /dev/root
setuproot: moving /dev failed: no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc no such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys no such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: no such file or directory
kenel panic - not syncing Attempted to kill init!

So I rebooted the machine and picked the old kernel to boot up (2.6.18-164) and everything came back up fine. I don't understand why it keeps failing when trying to boot to the new kernel. I am using the yum upgrade command, is there a different command I should be using?

CentOS 5 :: Pirut/yum: RHEL 5.1 - Maintain An Unregistered RHEL Box?

Feb 16, 2010

A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.

This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.

Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.

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 :: How To Dual Boot RHEL 5.2 And RHEL 5.4

Sep 25, 2009

Environment:RHEL 5.2 and 5.4 AP x86_64, 2 drives (sda, sdb), installing without optional features like clustering and virtualization. I have tried this for a couple of days now and just can't get it to work. My goal is to take the RHEL 5.2 DVD and RHEL 5.4 DVD and install them on separate drives of the same machine. I want the grub menu to give me a choice. I prefer to understand the steps and choices offered me by the install dialog to do this rather than fiddle with grub.conf. If that is not possible, I will write up the bug.

So far, I just get the the error 13 when trying to start the grub added second OS. I have read elsewhere that "Anaconda frequently recognizes the other operating system and sets up grub so you can boot from either operating system". That would be nice. The install dialog lets me choose a drive to install to. I have figured out that I need to check "review and modify partitioning layout" to enter the advanced grub choices. Do I have it install a boot loader for the 1st OS? Trying to add the 1st OS during the second OS install creates a grub conf with no kernel line in the added boot stanza.

Fedora :: What's The State Of NetworkManager In RHEL

Jul 28, 2011

I've always used the network init service to manage my network interfaces on headless servers and used NetworkManager on desktop installs. Lately it seems that NetworkManger is becoming more and more integrated into network management even on servers. I have a RHEL6 server in my lab that runs NM without any Gnome components installed and I've noticed in Fedora NM becoming more tightly coupled with the system-config-network related services.

I'm asking because this is a "highly connected" server, with two redundant NICs on each of two different networks with a bond interface associating each pair for redundancy. Every time the server reboots it fails to configure its default route correctly. I know how to configure the network using the standard /etc/sysconfig/network and ifcfg-* scripts. Is NM fully integrated with these configuration files?

Red Hat / Fedora :: RHEL 5 Not Loading On Boot?

Sep 14, 2010

I just started testing a redhat enterprise linux 5 installation. This installation took place in a Latitude D630 labtop which currently has Ubuntu Desktop in (sda1) and Ubuntu Server in (sda3). My goal was to install Redhat Enterprise Linux 5 into (sda4). Both of the Ubuntu installation boot fine and work, but when I try booting the RHEL it shows a panic in the loading phase as follow VFS: Cannot open root device "sda4" or unknown-block(0,0)Please append a correct "root=" boot optionKernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)I am wondering what this means, maybe some of you would have a better clue than I do

Red Hat / Fedora :: Installing GCC From Source - RHEL 4u7

Sep 17, 2010

I am trying to install gcc from source, but wish to install to an alternative location, ie /opt/gcc/4.4.4.

I have done so but ran into the problem that the system libs in /usr/lib64 were being located before my libs in /opt/gcc/4.4.4/lib64.

So, I set --libdir=/usr/lib and reinstalled. The libs link in correctly, but now g++ cant find includes, for instance <complex>. I think I could set CPATH to point to the locations of these includes but that doesn't seem like it should be necessary.

So my question is, what is the correct way to install gcc alongside the system versions while allowing linkage to the right libs and location of the includes? I don't want to use prefixes or suffixes because the intel compiler looks at gcc -v to get clues as to how to compile stuff.

It should be noted that I have no internet connectivity on this machine, so building from source is my only option.
