CentOS 5 Networking :: DNS Is SLOW After Enabling/disabling NetworkManager?

Mar 30, 2010

I ran into this today accidentally turned on networkmanager and it took it upon itself to rewrite some things and proceeded to make any DNS lookups on my server Especially those reverse DNS for SSH and SFTP take so long they would just time out instead of completing.. Disabling networkmanager did not undo the damage either. Short fix, Erase your resolv.conf file and add 2 lines to it as so, your nameservers!

nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
save, and run the following commands
service network restart
service httpd restart
service sshd restart

Mine had a search line added by networkmanager and some others, when i reverted it back to as above, almost instantly after restarting the services the systems lookups were once again, lightning fast. DNS lookups were taking upwards of 20 seconds for unknown reasons after this happenned

Fedora Networking :: F15 Is Disabling NetworkManager

Jun 25, 2011

I'm an inordinate amount of trouble getting F15 to run without NetworkManager. If I boot with the NetworkManager service enabled, my NIC presents as expected at /dev/eth0 (I'm using biosdevname=0). However, when I stop the NetworkManager service, /dev/eth0 disappears from the filesystem.If I boot without NetworkManager enabled, /dev/eth0 is never created. Reviewing dmesg, udev is loading an ethernet driver.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 Internet Slow ... Tried Disabling Ipv6

Feb 1, 2010

Is karmic is slower for you all: if you're running windows ping a server on windows/ubuntu and compare. 9.10 is consistently slower for me. I've seen enough "slow internet" posts to suspect that someone screwed up bad. Everyone says it's ipv6, but none of the fixes work for me. Pretty sure it's ipv6 (or at least a dns-related problem):

Ubuntu :: Enabling/disabling Touchpad With Fn+F9?

Mar 29, 2011

I am having a problem using my laptop's special keys to toggle my touchpad on and off on my ASUS G73JH laptop, running Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28-generic-pae).

First, some preliminaries:

My touchpad works just fine, but it does not respond to my laptop's special key, Fn+F9.

In /etc/acpi/events I have the following script, "asus-touchpad":

# /etc/acpi/events/asus-touchpad
# This is called when the user presses the touchpad button and calls
# /etc/acpi/asus-touchpad.sh for further processing.

General :: Enabling / Disabling Specific Priority In Syslog.conf?

May 11, 2011

Trying to figure out why the following two are treated differently...

authpriv.none;cron.none;mail.none;news.none -/var/log/syslog


According to man syslog.conf "You can specify multiple facilities with the same priority pattern in one statement using the comma (``,'') operator. You may specify as much facilities as you want. Remember that only the facility part from such a statement is taken, a priority part would be skipped."

Can someone confirm that this statement means that kern.!=debug is ignored in the first part because it's priority is not the same as the trailing facilities ending in .none?

CentOS 5 Networking :: NetworkManager Won't Start / Get It To Work?

Oct 12, 2009

I've been running CentOS on my laptop for a few weeks now. I don't know what happened today, but when I boot up, the NetworkManager wont show up on the panel, and I don't have access to wireless networks or Internet. I tried booting my Windows partition and the wireless works fine. I can't seem to remember any latest change I've made aside from the wallpaper =) Any ideas where I should start debugging? I could see the module "iwl3945" still loaded. Here's a manual type of my lsmod | grep iwl3945

iwl3945 90177 0
mac80211 137929 1 iwl3945

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon HD 5650 Gets VERY Slow After Enabling Compositing In KDE?

Sep 3, 2010

I have a laptop with the radeon HD 5650 video card. I used ubuntu's hardware drivers program to install the official drivers, and it seems to be working well, including 3D acceleration in games. However, it seems that enabling compositing in KDE makes it much slower. For example, running glxgears without compositing gives me about 35000 frames in 5 seconds, after I enable compositing it's only 6000 frames. But it's not just glxgears, the slowness is very noticeable in games as well.

On my old computer, I had an nVidia card, and enabling compositing in KDE made it a little slower, but the difference definitely wasn't that huge. o_O Is it some wrong configuration, a bug in ATI's drivers, or something else?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Internet Access Slow In CentOS 5.3?

Sep 9, 2009

I have an MSI K9A2 Platinum mobo, which has a 10/100/1000 Fast Ethernet Realtek 8111B built-in, a D-Link DIR-655 Router and a DSL modem. Compared to Windows Visya and other Linux distros ( Fedora 11, Suse 11.1, Mandriva 2009.1 ) access to the internet is much slower. It seems there is a noticeable delay when running CentOS 5.3. before internet access kicks in each time I am surfing the web or updating my system.

Is there any way I can speed things up, or determine why CentOS 5.3 seems much slower ?

CentOS 5 :: Enabling C99 Tyes In C++?

Dec 4, 2009

I have a C application in which I was happily using stdint.h and other useful things like UINT32_MAX. Now, I am trying to move over to C++. Turns out, C++ does not support C99 and there is no equivalent header file (like climits for limits.h). So is there a way to enable C99 types in C++? Or any other equivalent header files?

CentOS 5 :: Disabling IRQ #169 On Startup ?

Apr 8, 2011

I've run into this problem this week. The other night a power supply failed on a different system and appears to have surged the UPS which it and some other computers were plugged in to. One computer was fine, but the RAID server that is used for backups ended up with a bad disk and this "Disabling IRQ #169" message now shows up during boot, right after starting udev and setting the hostname. The system then sits there for 3-5 minutes before repeating a scroll of "/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 966: /bin/usleep: Input/output error"

I have booted with linux recovery from the CentOS DVD in order to replace the drive that was damaged. I rebuilt the raid array and all the data seems to be fine. There is another message though after "Red Hat nash version 5.1....." no raid disks and with names: "isw_bf jihdchhi_Hostname" failed to stat() /dev/mapper/isw_bf jihdchhi_Hostname

I was considering doing a complete reinstall of CentOS but if there is another solution I would much appreciate it, is it perhaps an issue with Grub not being able to find the updated array? As it is, it is impossible to boot the system except for using a live CD to do it.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Slow System Due To Hostname Loopback Address?

New CentOS 5.4 system working fine. Sys admins came in and copied the hosts file from one of the servers down to my desktop and ever sincethen machine has been slow (progs take 10-20seconds to load). RunningGnome. Luckily I saved the old hosts file and copied it back and all is now well. But I'd like to understand why, particularly as I will need to change myhostname in the future.

/etc/hosts (yes my hostname is "dummyName" that I will need to change later) dummyName localhost.localdomain localhost

I am trying to get VNC to work with display 0 on CentOS 5.2.In the past, I had always used the information straight from realvnc,URL... which is straighforward and simple, but this doesn't seem to work with CentOS 5. Once I attempt to connect to the server, it locks up.I have searched around and found the following info for CentOS 5, but I can't get it to work. The info seems very unclear and cumbersome to get display 0 configured.Has anyone gotten the RealVNC method to work on CentOS 5?
