CentOS 5 :: Complete Software Listing For A RHEL5 Box (NOT An RPM / Package Dump)

Aug 31, 2010

I have a need for a complete software list off of an existing RHEL 5 system. I need this list to compare software installed to software on a government approved software list to ensure the compliance of this system. I was given an RPM Dump, listing all the 2000+ packages on the system... This does not translate to the Government Approved software list that I have to compare to. I do not have access to this system myself, so what ever method is prescribed for extracting the list I will have to pass along. What I need is either:

1) A way to convert an RPM Package dump to actual software names and versions, etc.


2) A method to extract a complete list of software (titles/versions/etc) from an instance of RHEL5.

Example: Instead of knowing that "pango-devel-1.14.9-6.el5" exists on the system I need to know that "Pango v3.0.x" is installed on the system. Many packages do not relate on a one to one basis with a specific piece of software via inter-dependencies etc. (not to mention the version of the software, not the version of the package/library). The Pango example is not the best example as you can see what software is likely the source of this package; however just because this package is installed, I cannot grantee 100% that the Pango software suite is installed, just that this package was installed...

CentOS 5 :: Oprofile Unable To Complete Dump Of Oprofile Data

Apr 26, 2011

1. I installed oprofile 0.9.4 on Centos Linux 5.5 this past Saturday. Since then I have been trying to learn how to use oprofile 0.9.4 on Centos Linux 5.5. If I follow the following steps running as root,


I obtain the following warning: warning: the last modified time of the binary file does not match that of the sample file for /home/frankc/DQTTest5/MatchUpLib/lirh5g_deb/libmdMatchup.so Either this is the wrong binary or the binary has been modified since the sample file was created. warning: the last modified time of the binary file does not match that of the sample file for /home/frankc/DQTTest5/MatchUpTest/lirh5g_deb/MatchUpAccurate.exe

I am wondering how to prevent this warning message from occuring because it indicates our profiling results may be incorrect.

2. My second question is : when I use opcontrol --start --session-dir=/home/frankc/DQTTest/Mary5Test and profile my application using /home/frankc/DQTTest5/MatchUpTest/lirh5g_deb/Mary48.exe --run, I encounter an error when I do opcontrol --dump. The error is: Unable to complete dump of oprofile data: is the oprofile daemon running? Why is the oprofile daemon stopping when I use opcontrol --start --session-dir=/home/frankc/DQTTest/Mary5Test rather than when I use oprofile --start. I checked the permissions on /home/frankc/DQTTest/Mary5Test and it is drwxrwxrwx.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Get Kdump To Generate Dump Files?

Dec 7, 2010

I'm posting because I've read everything I can find on google and in the forum and the man page and still can't get it to work. I did read the FAQ, I hope I have adhered to it.I've tried several things and I don't remember exactly everything I tried and in what order.I've got several (12) HP ProLiant DL140 G3 servers running CentOS 5 that lockup about once a week. These are in a remote colo cage so I all i have access to is the built-in HP lights-out management interface, which includes a console, and ssh. I've been trying to get kdump setup to try to figure out what's going on. As an aside, if I run top on the console (via the management interface) the servers stay up for about a week, if I don't run top they crash within about 48 hours.I've used yum update to update to the latest available kernel (2.6.18-194.26.1.el5.x86_64) and installed the debuginfo and debuginfo-common RPMs from http://debuginfo.centos.org/5/x86_64/I have a single command in the /etc/kdump.conf file:ext3 /dev/sda5

Debian Configuration :: Dbus Package Is Corrupted Or Not Complete?

May 12, 2010

I had my laptop turned on. The battery turned out low and my pc shut down (not in the correct way obviously)! Plus: I was running apt-get upgrade but it should have done before shutting down. Now, I restarted my pc and under nm-applet I see: "wireless network: device not ready" and at login I get the message: "Network configurations failed. org.freedesktop.dbus.error.spawn.PermissionsInvalid: the permission of the setuid helper is not correct" and that I could not be able to connect via bluetooth (but actuallyu I can't use wireless!)! What to do guys? I use debian squeeze. I read from someone using kubuntu that he solved the problem reinstalling all the packages with "dbus" in their name. But I don't know if my ethernet will work yet!

Update: if I run dpkg-reconfigure dbus, it tells me that dbus package is corrupted or not complete: could be the issue?

Software :: RHEL5 - Info On Package Groups Breakdown

Apr 6, 2011

After installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) the system generates a kickstart script, one section of which is about the package groups installed. For example:


Before using this kickstart script for another installation I'd like to know what packages are included in each group, how can I get this information? For example, how can I know the list of packages I will install by having the line: @java in the kickstart file? Any Red Hat documentation about it? I could not find any...

Programming :: Core Dump Issues. Program Crashes But Does Not Generate Core Dump File?

Oct 7, 2009

I want to generate core dump files from my program when it crashes. Its a pretty big process and has about 10-11 threads in it.I have followed the documentation to enable core dump by setting ulimit to unlimited etc. I quickly tried "A demo program creating a core dump" from the following webpage, which succeeds in Segfault and dumping a core file in the directory that I configured.However, I tried running my original program and caused it to crash. I did this by making calls to kill(), raise() or the same null pointer access as shown in the webpage above. In each case, my program crashed but did not generate a core dump file. Am I missing something?My program is in C++ and my environment is Redhat 9.0 (kernel 2.4.20)

Going through the "Why do I NOT get a core dump?" section on the same webpage as above, I can see two potential problems. One - there are issues with the suid/sgid (bullet # 6). I am not able to change any settings with suid because my system does not contain either /proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable or /proc/sys/kernel/suid_dumpableTwo, my program has threads in it and the bullet # 8 is the problem.

CentOS 5 :: Complete X Crash Running Seamonkey 2.0?

General :: How To Reinstall (CentOS 5.2 = RHEL5) In Laptop

Jan 11, 2010

I plan to reinstall linux (CentOS 5.2 = RHEL5) in my laptop because of insufficient diskspace partition in /. Only allocate 8.8G for /root and the rest to /app/Current my kernel version is 2.6.28, which are latest than the CentOS release which is 2.6.18, I think. Someone compile the kernel for me because he said my laptop network card is not recognized in the 2.6.18 released. I am not sure how he did it. I am a bit worried because if I reinstall again, I will face the same problem that my network card is not recognized!.

Red Hat :: Centos/RHEL5.4 : Anaconda-Kickstart And UUID?

Mar 21, 2011

I am using the "harddrive" option in a kickstart config to have it pick up isolinux files from a USB flash drive. I have been able to get it work by specifying the device name directly, but if I specify a LABEL or UUID, it does not work.Here is what my ks.cfg looks like.

harddrive --partition=LABEL="/install" --dir=/
lang en_US.UTF-8


It almost seems like the version of Anaconda in Centos5.4 does not support specifying UUID or LABELs, but I have not been able to confirm that from the Release notes.Appreciate any tips/references/documentation.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Cannot Complete Installation Of MadWiFi 0.9.4 For WG311T

Jan 11, 2010

I'm trying to install a Netgear WG311T V1H1, rev A3, Atheros AR2414 mac 0x79m phy0x45 on Centos 2.6.18-128.el5. Two methods are offered. The distribution comes with Madwifi's latest driver, ath5K, but it is not supported for this card and is unstable. It will connect but has variable data rates and will drop out with long downloads. My research indicates that the madwifi 0.9.4 driver should support this card. Both methods call for blacklisting ath5k, which I did.

1. Following Centos directions, [URL], I installed the configured RPM Forge and did yum install madwifi, which was successful. The command modprobe ath_pci produces the error "module ath_pci not found." It appears that the RPMForge download did not install these needed bits. So my fundamental question is where is the ath_pci? It is not on the machine.

2. Following the Madwifi directions, I did yum install gcc make perl, which was successful. Their next step, the 'make' command, yielded the KERNELPATH error described on their page [URL]. It points to /lib/modules/2.6.18-128.el5/build, but 'build' is a path, not a file or directory. Installing kernel-devel to get the build files on the system was suggested by another web page, and I did it with yum install kernel-devel, and it was successful, but did not change the error. The literature says I can redirect the make command to the correct spot, but there does not seem to be a correct spot.

General :: Configure A System To Boot Windows XP / CentOS 4 And RHEL5

May 21, 2010

I am trying to configure a system to boot Windows XP, CentOS 4 and RHEL5. I have one hard drive that contains both Windows XP and CentOS 4, and a separate drive that contains RHEL5. Until recently, I only had one SATA cable, so I could only connect one drive at a time. Under this configuration, everything works fine. When the RHEL5 drive is connected, I can boot into it. When the Windows/CentOS drive is connected, I can dual-boot into either OS. (GRUB was configured on this drive automatically when I installed CentOS into a new partition.)

Opening the box and moving the SATA cable is a lot of trouble, so I finally got a second SATA cable and enabled both SATA0 and SATA1 in the BIOS. I currently have the Windows/Centos drive as the primary, and I can still boot into both Windows/Centos. Now, I want to add RHEL5 to menu, but I can't find the file GRUB is using to present its menu at startup.

I have configured GRUB before on other systems, but I just know the very basics, such as where the grub.conf file should be. So, I spent a whole day reading advice online and asking friends who might have experience with these issues. Here are the steps I have taken so far:

I confirmed there is no /boot/grub directory, and /etc/grub.conf is a broken soft-link to /boot/grub/grub.conf. I did a find for grub.conf, which found nothing. I did a find for menu.lst, which found one item -- an example GRUB config file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I noticed that when CentOS boots, I see the GRUB commands printed to the screen, the first of which is:

root (hd0,2)

So, I did a grep -R "(hd0" * at the / directory, which also found only one item -- the example menu.lst file in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.95. I discovered that I can go to the command line grub from the grub menu and do:

cat (hd0,2)/grub/grub.conf

The cat command returns a printout of the grub configuration the system is obviously using. I didn't create this file, but the titles are identical to what I see in the GRUB menu, the default boot is Windows, and the timeout is very short. This must be the file. It looks like:

title CentOS (2.6.9-89.ELsmp)


I've also tried making the RHEL5 drive the primary drive. In that case, I can modify the existing /boot/grub/grub.conf file and see my changes at the GRUB boot menu. However, I can't get Windows to boot in this configuration. I've done a lot of google searching on the topic and added map commands to make Windows think it is on the primary drive. But, I'm still unsuccessful on this front as well. I think I'm closer to solving the problem with Windows/CentOS as the primary. However, if you think I will have more success with RHEL5 as the primary drive, I can provide more details as to my current grub.conf on that drive in a later post.
