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 ..no.
Where else should I look or how this update happened?

Ubuntu Installation :: Automatically Delete Old OS Image When New One Updated?

Aug 4, 2010

Is there a way to automatically remove the old linux image when a new one is updated?

When my system boots up it shows option
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-21
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-22
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-23
Ubuntu kernel version x.x.x-24
memtest + console
Windows 7 loader

Ubuntu seems to boot up the exact same regardless if I choose version 21 or 24. Dont recall the exact kernel since I am not in front of my computer now.

CentOS 5 Server :: CentOS 5.5 Guest In VirtualBox / Less Memory Available Than Configured

Aug 27, 2010

I just ran into a weird problem with a CentOS 5.5 64-bit server running VirtualBox 3.2.8 (I would run Vmware Server 2.0.2 if not for the well known fact that Vmware doesn't care about its Server line anymore and it doesn't run on CentOS > 5.3 without major splits). I currently have two guests in that VirtualBox setup, a CentOS 5.5 64-bit and a Fedora 13 64-bit. The CentOS 5.5 guest shows less memory available than configured. If, for example, I give the virtual machine 512MB of memory the guest OS only recognizes 380MB. If I give it 768MB it only recognizes 637MB, and so on. I don't have that problem on the Fedora guest - 1024MB configured, 1024MB available.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Booting - Automatically Boot To The Gdm/desktop After Updated Gpu Driver?

Oct 11, 2010

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux so please bear with me . I recently installed 10.10 on my new htpc. The initial install went great, until I went to install the updated driver for my graphics card. What I did was I downloaded the driver off of nvidia. Then I did these steps:

1. ctrl-alt-f1

2. logged in

3. sudo services gdm stop

4. I then located the driver package that I downloaded and ran it, it seemed to install fine (except for an error about some install script? but it let me proceed)

5. sudo services gdm start

It went to the gdm/ubuntu desktop. However I then connected it via HDMI, and the resolution was way off (top bar was not even displayed on TV) and I tried many different settings but no luck in fixing it. Next after restarting it did not automatically boot to the gdm/desktop. Instead it stayed at the command line login (the ctrl-alt-f1 screen).

tl;dr : 1. How to make it automatically boot to the gdm/desktop after I updated my gpu driver

2. How to fix the resolution for HDMI from my gpu to my TV. (DVI works fine

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.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Update Three Systems With Only One Download?

Mar 31, 2009

I have three CentOS machines which want updating from CentOS 5.2 to 5.3 sometime in the next week or two.I've always just done su -c 'yum update' on each machine, and let it slowly download and update a zillion pkgs. And every time I do that, I tell myself that *next* time, I'll figure out a better way.

I'd like to be a little more efficient this time, and have the 2nd & 3rd machines re-use some of the packages that the first machine downloaded. Two are workstations, and the third, a headless non-X11 fileserver, so they have different (but overlapping) sets of packages that they'll need. But the in-common packages comprise a lot of downloading that I would rather do only once. There's some way to set up a local yum repo on my server, mirror *everything* onto it, and update all machines from it. But that looks trickier, and way overkill for my purpose. Or I could just download ISOs, and work from there, but two machines don't have optical drives to boot from, and the ISOs contain tons of stuff that none of these systems need, so the download savings would be cancelled out.

A little reading of forums/manpages/etc, and I think I want to make use of yum localupdate (which I've never tried before), and do something along the lines of: 1.) Update the first workstation. It'll download all pkgs it needs overnight, and then update itself: [wkstn]$ su -c 'yum update'

2.) Make sure everything is working correctly.

3.) Grab every *.rpm from wkstn's /var/cache/yum and all its subdirs, and copy these to a temp dir on the server's raid: [wkstn]$ cp -a /var/cache/yum /server/raida/wkstn_yum_cache

4.) Update any server packages that the wkstn already downloaded.[server]$ su -c 'yum localupdate /raida/wkstn_yum_cache/'

5.) Update any server packages that the wkstn did NOT download: [server]$ su -c 'yum update'

6.) Deal with anything that broke on the server. The raid drivers, for example, always seem to need rebuilding, after kernel updates.

7.) Update the other workstation.

Question #0: Will this do what I want? I've never tried yum localupdate before, and the yum manpage doesn't elaborate much. Am I really barking up the wrong tree? Is there some much better way of doing this, for updating just 2 to 4 machines.

CentOS 5 :: Re-instal Windows XP - Systems Hangs?

Mar 29, 2009

I had a spare computer (Dell Optiplex GX270) which I had installed Centos 5 on and have been setting up asterisk (telephony) on it. My main computer has broken down and I need to load Windows XP back on to the Optiplex.

I put the Windows XP disk in the drive and directed the bios to boot from the cd. I get the message "Please wait while windows inspects your current hardware configuration" and then after about 10 seconds the screen goes blank (the cd also slows down and then stops) and then the systems seems to just hang.

If I take the cd out and boot from the hard drive Centos loads normally; therefore I'm assuming my problem is not a defective hard drive.

I've spent quite a bit of time searching online for a solution and although there seems to be several different situations where the above can occur, I'guessing that my ssues are related to either partions/mbr and or the bios/cmos. I'm really new to Linux and not knowledgable on partitions and cmos so I'm hoping someone could help me out here.

I've checked in the bios and could not find an option to restore the settings to factory defaults. Should I pull the csmos datterry out? Does this restore the bios settings to factory defaults?

CentOS 5 :: Create A Workflow For Upgrading Various Systems Using Kickstart?

Mar 18, 2011

I am trying to create a workflow for upgrading various systems using kickstart. I was hoping folks can point me in the right direction.I have a system which already has Centos installed on it. However it is a stripped down version of Centos using a custom kickstart installer. Now I would like to upgrade these systems, using an updated kickstart file spec. I would like to be able to copy over required files into a partition on the system, make a change in the grub.conf, reboot the system and expect the system to use the kickstart file and the iso file located on a partition on the system to self upgrade the entire system.The partition which holds the iso on these systems may be raided, or it may be an LVM partition.

How do I specify in the kickstart file that the location of the iso is on an LVM partition? Is this even supported? I have tried specifiying the disk like so:

< -- isolinux/ks/harddrive.cfg -- >
harddrive --partition=mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol02 --dir=/isolinux


But the installer did not seem to like it. Instead of the iso, can I put the entire tree instead? Would that work?

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.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Automatically Updated My Revtex To Revtex4.1 - Error "revtex4.cls' Not Found"

May 9, 2010

My update to ubuntu 10.04 automatically updated my revtex to revtex4.1 but I am having a few problems. The first is that the natbib does not accept the footnote{} command and so I cannot put in footnotes in the middle of the text. The second is that all my old revtex4 files are not being accepted anymore, as revtex4.cls has now been replaced. Now I removed the texlive and texlive publishers with "sudo apt-get autoremove" and tried to reinstall them with "sudo apt-et install". I made things even worse because now I not only get the message "revtex4.cls' not found" but also "revtex4.1.cls' not found" when I try using revtex4.1.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Request For Working Xorg.conf For ATI 4xxx Systems?

Nov 10, 2010

I just set up a new CentOS 5.5 system (using the 5.5 DVD, yum updated all packages to latest) which unfortunately due to various issues and most critically availability, has an ATI-4350. The install went OK but X does not detect the card properly so it's using the slow VESA driver. I followed the instructions here [URL] to download and install the ATI driver. It appeared to be correctly installed but not used.

Display still detects my monitor and 4350 as unknown and using some "Vendor supplied driver". Yet under the "Dual Head" tab, if I would to enable it, the ATI-4350 comes up as an option, hence implying that the driver was corrected installed and the card is actually detected. I suspect it might have to do with my Xorg.conf, although trying to edit in several ways didn't make it work.

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.
