I have few doubts regarding fonts configuration in RHEL 5.4.
[vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ cd /usr/share/X11/fonts [vinay@linuxcoe4 fonts]$ ls 100dpi 75dpi encodings misc TTF Type1 util
Also there is no fonts.dir file, which describes fonts under a specific fonts directory in /usr/share/fonts tree. But we can find fonts.dir or fonts.scale file under /usr/share/X11/fonts/ tree. Does files under /usr/share/fonts tree are not dependent on fonts.dir ?
Friends i got an opertunity to configure ddns in my office.I already configured staic dns in linux, but this is the first time iam configuring ddns.I just configured ddns in rhel 5.2 in my office.So far every thing working fine,dhcp is giving ip address to the clients and both forward and reverse dns database is updating.
1) In windows we can use flushdns and registerdns commands to update the dns database, like this any command is in linux to update client details in dns database?
2)how to restrict multiple client entries keeping in dhcp database.
3)if i change client hostname it is not updating the dns database,it is keeping the old one.
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?
is possible to edited the default RHEL CD to have it automatically install RHEL based off of a kickstart file that I will store locally on the CD. My plan would be to put a cd in a server and have the OS automatically being installed.
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.
I have a laptop with a 15" screen and a resolution of 1920 X 1200 and a 22" external monitor running at 1680 X 1050. This means the laptop runs with a dpi of 150 and the monitor runs at a dpi of 90. Is there anyway to get the fonts on the laptop to be readable while keeping the fonts on the monitor from being gigantic?
I have been doing some customization to my ubuntu Box related to font settings. Now all the font settings for whole system have been badly scrambled. I am feeling it very hard to reset all the settings too default again.I have been modifying system---> Preference ---> Appearance. if there exists any way to reset my font configuration to default.
After an update on squeeze about a week or two ago, my console font turned green. I'm not exactly sure of the timing, because I switch between lenny and squeeze, and some time passed between the update and the reboot in squeeze.
During the update, I was asked if I wanted to keep my altered /etc/grub.d/00_header or take the package maintainer's version. I took the PM's version, knowing I'd lose my edit (set gfxpayload=1024x768x16). When I add that line to the new 00_header, run update-grub and reboot, the console font is the size I want, but it's a dull green. Reminds me of my first computer. How do I get it back to white and keep the 1024x768 resolution?
Currently booting with grub-legacy and chainloading grub2. If I boot entirely with grub-legacy, and pass vga=791, the console font will be white. It doesn't matter which kernel I use. Currently, I'm running 2.6.32-3-686. Same behavior exists if I use 2.6.30-2-686. If I use 1024x768x8 I get a dull gray instead of dull green.
I have and RHEL5.4 conecceted to an SAN HSV200. When I present a LUN to it, In system-confg-lvm gui appears a device like /dev/mapth/mapth0 (that�s the correct device to multipath) and other like /dev/sda or /dev/dm-N, as uninitialized entities. How could I configure to not display this device (/dev/sda) and prevent human errors?
This is the things I need:
1- I want (if it is posible...) to disappear the part where it says "uninitialized entities"
2- Is It necesary mantain the partitioning done to default (like /dev/mapper/mpath0p1) with device-mapper-multipath (kpartx command)? or Can I delete it without future problems?
My Squeeze installation has the horrific 80x25 line display, and I cannot stand it. I know it can do better, because the grub screen is very tiny. I ran dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but the offerings there aren't much better. I don't know what happened to the good ol' days of grub when all you had to do was pass vga=791 to the kernel to get a decent console size... but it seems they are gone.
I don't really understand this new v2 grub... I don't know why it was necessary to change how it was configured, when it seemed to work so exquisitely. how I would accomplish the functional equivalent of passing vga=791 (1024x768@75hz) to the kernel in grub
I am trying to install and configure nagios on RHEL 5. I have apache 2 installed and php all working as exepected. When i install nagios following the these steps [URL]. The nagios folder that is suppossed to be placed under apache2's httpd is no where to be seen. So when I try to open localhost/nagios/. It says: The requested URL /nagios/ was not found on this server. What can I do for the nagios to work on this system. The apache and php are working fine.
issue in starting up Open view monitoring on couple of linux servers and here is the output from mii-tool looks like.
eth0: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok eth1: 100 Mbit, full duplex, link ok
Based on what I understand, eth0 goes to monitoring and the other 2 ethernet cards go to FE. I am not an expert in system administration but would like to know if there is any issues with the above settings/configuration (in fact, im also looking for what do they infer and what is the settings?
One monitor is working fine but the display is not coming on other monitor. I guess no problem in monitor because I swapped the cable to check the individual monitor. When I try to install the new driver its giving GCC-VERSION-CHECK while installing. And I do not think I have to install the new driver because it has already one. What should I do to configure the dual monitor. Do I have to edit any configuration file.
My system configuration details are below. Redhat version : Redhat Enterprise Linux WS release 3 (Taroon update 4) Driver in SRBC 26: NVIDIA-LINUX-x86_64-1.0-7664-pkg2.run Nvidia card model : Quadro fx p171 Bios version of Nvidia : 188.8.131.52.07 p/n : 900-50171-0400-0000K 600-50171-0002-201J
I want to create a small network of 3-5 computers. I want to have one computer as my server and have services like NFS, DHCP, NTP, etc. I want to connect it to 2-4 other clients that have the bare minimal installation of linux on them. I would like 1 client computer to have a static ip address and I would like another to receive a dynamic ip address from the server. How would I go about doing all of this without the assistance of GUI's? I want to be able to do all this with the ks.cfg and network config files.
I am new to mysql can some one provide me the documentation or some recommended links to start the configuration of mysql server on RHEL. Also if I get the database schema, how can I replicate the same in my machine. Any documentation for this?
The title pretty much says it all. Once I get past GRUB, the font becomes HUGE and starts off screen. It appears to be center zoomed because I cannot see the login prompt nor anything I type. It's not really an emergency, I installed OpenSSH during the OS installation and can just turn it on and log in over SSH or start up Webmin. It just bugs me that I cannot figure this out.
There is no graphical environment installed, so it's not a video card issue. I tried adding vga=ask as a kernel flag and then tried several options, but to no avail.
Most of my work happens in a terminal, so I need a clear, readable font. I've settled a while ago on Terminus [URL]..., which works wonders for me. I added XTerm*faceName : Terminus in my ~/.Xdefaults, and I do get the Terminus font. Unfortunately, a lot of Unicode glyphs are missing (mathematical symbols, greek and hebrew letters), displaying as little square blocks instead.
If I remove the faceName entry, the default configuration seems able to display most of the glyphs (including math, greek, hebrew, runic, and whatever else), but the default font is much harder to read.
A google search hints that it should be possible to use Terminus as the default font, and fallback to (an)other one(s) for missing glyphs, but provides no further explanation. I've seen documentation that recommends Bitstream Vera Sans as a fallback, but it lacks the glyphs I need too; I don't know how to identify the default font used by xterm either, I had a look at /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm, but all I can find are generic references to old pre-fontconfig font names.
Using Gentoo Linux, fontconfig and xterm are up to date, USEs trutype and unicode enabled, X.Org server 1.6.
Edit: I alternate between Ratpoison, Awesome and XMonad, without a desktop environment.
