CentOS 5 :: Finding A List Of RPMS With Known Vulns?

Aug 11, 2009

Is there a list of RPMs with known vulnerabilities? I was hoping to run some scripts across the list of currently installed packages vs such a list of vulnerable, to get an idea of what systems need attention. And no, just updating everything is neither an option, nor possible. My servers don't have access (nor do I want them to) to the outside world. Further, being production systems, I can't cause a disruption outside of scheduled down time, and due to running commercial software I can't upgrade some packages due to vendor support issues.

Software :: Yum Not Finding - Listing Installed Rpms - Missing Dependency

May 18, 2010

I have a disk of all the rpms (just the rpms) of RH Ent. 5.1. I needed to intall some packages from it.

For that I created a local repository.

Following is what I did:

1. mounted DVD in /media
2. Issued createrepo on /media (Now the packages are in /media/mycdrom/RHE5Rpms and the repodata is in /media)
3. I added the following in the /etc/yum.conf

Now when I try to install, for example, qt4-devel, it can resolve the dependencies for one level. For example, it resolves libpng-devel (which is needed by qt4-devel), but it fails to resolve libpng (which is needed by libpng-devel). But libpng package is both available in the DVD and is already installed on the machine.

Following is the tail of error messages I get after issuing the command 'yum install qt4-devel'

All the above packages are available through the DVD and already installed on the machine.

Feb 12, 2009

Does anyone know where we can get the rpms (x86_64) for MySQL v4.0.26 or 27?

We are in the process of upgrading a very old server to CentOS 5 and need to retain this version. We still have a lot of clients that utilize this version.

General :: How To Install CentOS With Lesser RPMs?

Jan 30, 2010

I have been challenged to install CentOS occupying just 200 MB. As for now, I installed the OS with only first CD.

Just put :


under %package directive in ks.cfg. I can see the space as of now is:


# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3 13G 740M 12G 9% /
/dev/sda1 99M 12M 83M 12% /boot
tmpfs 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm

I need to make it to atleast 300MB.I can see those RPM lying in Linux Box:


df -hyum remove 389*df -hyum remove *ldap*df -hrpm -qa --qf '%11{SIZE} %{NAME}
' | sort -k1n
0 basesystem
0 filesystem


I will remove java, selinux-* but what other package I can remove.

Note: I dont need any application to run but just bare OS.

CentOS 5 :: Duplicate Rpms In Base And Updates?

There appears to be three rpms duplicated between the base repo and the updates repo:


This causes a big problem for Spacewalk as the packages are non-unique among channels.

I'm assuming these should be in base but not updates?Can they be removed to address this issue?

CentOS 5 :: Part Of VLC 0.9.9 Broken With The Latest RPMs From Dag

Mar 31, 2011

Aside from a few minor issues, I've been happy with VLC 0.9.9.

I recently did a yum update to get to Centos 5.5. I've got yum pointed to Dag.

Everything worked fine, until I restarted VLC 0.9.9.

In the update it looks like ffmpeg was updated to the 6.X branch, x264, and how vlc 0.9.9 was recompiled.

wait wait wait.. let me clarify, vlc 0.9.9 still works, but a key function in it that i use has broken.

I am able to do a yum downgrade on x264 and ffmpeg, but I am unable to downgrade VLC because it tells me there is no down grade path. How do I go about requesting the previous version of VLC be added back to Dags RMP site?

I spent sometime hacking on things the last 2 days, and was able to compile using the same ./configure options that were compiled from Dag with ffmpeg 5.2, and x264 and I get them to compile cleanly. VLC 0.9.9 source compiles and the errors I'm hitting go away.

I don't think the ffmpeg 6.X rmp is broken, i just think its to new for vlc 0.9.9 and breaks certain functionality.

CentOS 5 :: Location Executable File After Installation RPMs

When I look to the yumex so I can see single installed rpm's. That is OK. BUT I cant start openoffice because I dont know where are executable files. where is their location and where is default location for all installed programs(from RPM)?

CentOS 5 :: Caching Yum Rpms To Update Multiple Nodes?

Dec 3, 2010

As I was updating machines today, I was wondering... Is there some way to cache the RPM files locally that yum is grabbing? Like many, I have a number of VMs I run, and it most updates are the same between the nodes. I'm guessing I'd need some sort of http cache? Just looking for pointers, not sure what I'm looking for, however.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Any Rpms From Custom Appliance Build

Jun 15, 2011

We have an appliance with image being installed from CD/DVD installation
This appliance image is based on CentOS 4.7 kernel/installer/etc. Everything works fine, we ship this product for about 2 years. Recently I had to move it (port everything) to CentOS 5.5 Everything went fine and it works fine except one minor thing )) We can't install it from CD/DVD image yet. Actually it start fine, finds kickstart file, creates partitions correctly, copies install image to harddrive, but fails the next step when it tries to install RPM's

The message we get:

the file termcap-5.5-1.20060701.1.noarch.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source. If you exit your system will be left in an inconsistent state that will likely require re-installation"

CentOS 5 :: Yum Install Of Nvidia Rpms From ATrpm Fails Due To Vmlinuz Filename

Oct 16, 2009

I have installed Centos 5.3 64 bit version and run yum update so the system is up to date. However, I have noticed the kernel version that is installed is:

uname -a
Linux elektra.chemresearch 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and when attempting to install from ATrpm.net the nvidia driver I get this message:

yum install nvidia-graphics169.07 nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-`uname -r`
Missing Dependency: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5 is needed by package 1:nvidia-graphics169.07-kmdl-2.6.18-164.2.1.el5-169.07-94.el5.x86_64 (atrpms)

Now, yum says the kernel is up to date so how can I get the nvidia driver rpms to install? The entries in /boot are:


I have checked to make sure that the update repo is enabled. There were quite a few updates applied after the initial installation and the initial kernel was updated as the yum log indicates and also the entries in /boot.

Fedora :: Finding A List Of Renamed Packages?

Sep 1, 2011

I get annoyed sometimes that from one Fedora release to another, some programs get renamed or put into different packages. Examples:

* Gnome's volume control applet. Used to be provided by gnome-media, now it's moved to control-center. Worse, the command itself was renamed from gnome-volume-control-applet to gnome-sound-applet, so I couldn't even try a `yum provides` search to locate it.

* Gnome's Disk Usage Analyzer tool. Used to be in a package by itself, baobab. Now it's provided by gnome-utils.

Is there a wiki or something where the full list of all renamed/repackaged programs can be found? I'm not a Gnome desktop user, so, while I'm sure all the packages I like from Gnome are just there out-of-the-box for most users, it doesn't help me very much. The volume control applet for example is extremely useful for other desktop environments (and Gnome itself really doesn't have much need for it anyway, since they have their own built into the window shell).

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - Finding List Of Md5sums Took Longer?

Mar 22, 2010

Why is it always such a PITA to find a list of md5sums for the various versions of Ubuntu. I've just downloaded 9.10 from [URL], but it took me longer to track down the md5sums than it did to download 690Mb on a cable connection. A simple link on each of the many pages from which you can download Ubuntu is surely not too much to ask. And it's not a new problem. I remember having the same problem going back to at least 8.04, if not earlier. For those others looking for the link, here is one [URL].

Software :: Finding A Program To Display Random Words From List?

By entering words in a spreadsheet and then sorting the list in alphabetical order, I made a list of new vocabulary words for myself to memorize, and wondered whether I could make random words from the list display on the screen daily. I know I could write a program to do that if I knew programming, but I don't.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Not Finding Latest Version Of GLIBC

Mar 31, 2009

I'm new to the yum installation route and am looking forward to getting some experience using it, however, I am working to build a Nagios server through yum and have run into difficulties meeting the dependencies. (I'd previously installed from source on a different server though I'd been warned is a bad thing so I am trying to make nice and go this route but have run into snags right off...) The dependency hurdle I'm trying to overcome is getting to GLIBC2_4 from my version of 2.3.

I've read through a number of posts where people have had issues getting glib updated or gcc installed correctly. This is pretty much a new installation of CentOS (VM cloned off an earlier install that was taken just after going through the GUI setup). As far as I have gotten is 'yum update' which updated the kernel and openssl.

CentOS 5 :: SAMBA Upgrade With Yum Not Finding The Latest Version?

Jun 14, 2010

I have CentOS 5.5 installed on my Dell D600. This release includes SAMBA 3.0.
Question: Is there a way to use yum to upgrade / install the latest version of SAMBA (3.5.3)?

A "yum search samba" shows there is only the "samba3x" release available - which is SAMBA 3.0

I've downloaded the SAMBA3-3.5.3-43.el5.i386.rpm package for Cent OS 5 from the SAMBA.org site, but when I try to install it, it fails due to package dependencies.

Short of downloading the source and compiling it myself, is there a better method to get the latest version of SAMBA installed on my system?
