I have a file server running samba 3.4.0. I just upgraded ubuntu to 9.10. The upgrade was unfortunately stopped in the middle, but I think I managed to complete it.The problem is that now samba will not work after a reboot. The daemons are running, but any attempt to connect from a windows machine fails (Windows 7: the network path was not found). Manually restarting the service fixes the problem, but I need a more stable solution!Interestingly, I can ssh to the machine, or rdp to a virtual machine running on it.The logs don't seem to report any error:
Have just installed 5.4 64 bit on an AMD64 x2 system with 4 GB ram running ESXi4.Text based install went fine, but on reboot starting up it gets as far as 'Starting udev' and just hangs. Checking the performance in ESXi it appears to be using 100% cpu.I have left it for half an hour and it does not progress and the only thing to do is to power cycle the VM.I have searched and found a few suggestions for kernel parameters but they did not make any difference. I can't even get in to a command line as it doesn't boot up far enough.I have reinstalled it several times and also checked the MD5 of the downloaded file and all appears Ok.
I have a SSH box which is command line only and no X, this will be used remote and i'm trying to get the wireless network configured to start at boot. I'm using wpa_supplicant as the access point is secure with WPA2 At present if I send the following commands the machine will connect to the wifi and be reachable via ssh
I just finished installing CentOS 5.2 x86_64 on a Dell Dimension 3100 (Pentium 4 with 64-bit support). On the first boot, after completing the final config steps (firewall, SELinux, time server, etc), the boot hangs on "Starting xend:". I have completed a successful installation on another Dell machine (different processor), with the same installation options (I recorded all of the steps and followed them for the second installation).
I am booting centos 5.3 on x86-64 machine. The system hands at line "Starting xend:". Is there any way to skip starting xend service during boot or disable it during boot so the system finally reboots.
I have to rename a group of machines in my little samba domain (tbd backend) but there is an ugly bug that makes this impossible. have set 'rename user script' variable corectly, also checked all configurations.When i change computer name in my windows box, it shows an error saying something like "Error calling remote procedure"Looking on server side, username for the machine gets correctly changed in /usr/passwd, and also in samba database.But samba log says:
=============================================================== [2009/10/08 11:10:32, 0] lib/fault.c:fault_report(42) INTERNAL ERROR: Signal 11 in pid 11052 (3.0.33-3.7.el5_3.1)
I am trying to share files between Windows XP machine, ubuntu server, debian server and ubuntu desktop. But mainly between ubuntu server and Windows XP computer.I also like to learn samba, because probably I could do all this with ftp server as well.I set up and configured samba following the instruction on Online Ubuntu Server Guide.But when I run the command:sudo /etc/init.d/samba restartI get:bash: /etc/init.d/samba: No such a file or directory I don't know what is wrong?
I need to copy files over from a Solaris 2.6 box to my machine running Centos 5.3. I have to use RCP since the Solaris box is so old that is the only inter-machine copy command available.How do I enable rshd services on my centos box? Detailed explanation would be apperciated since I am from the ssh generation.
I am facing a problem with my AT91SAM9260 customized board. Board is almost same as the evaluation kit.
I could download the binaries ( Bootstrap-v1.16, u-boot-1.3.4, linux kernel 2.6.20) successfully to the DATAFLASH/NANDFlash in my board by using atmel SAM-BA tool with usb/serialport/jlink.
Here I describe the problem.
When I power up the board, boot strap is not jumping to U-boot location, in the normal boot sequence and board stuck with bootstrap.
But when I disconnect/connect the JTAG USB cable ( provided with SAM-BA ICE) , it's jumping to u-boot location and booting the board properly. I'm getting the same error in NAND FLASH also.
I have tried one more test case.I copied bootstrap binary at the flash location, [location which is specified for u-boot binary] instead of U-boot.bin (location: 0x8400 in dataflash), I got continous bootstrap debug messages in my console. [ So can I conclude SDRAM doesn't have any problem? ]
this is probably something trivial but how can I auto start gdm on CentOS 5.4??I had to perform a text install due to Anaconda having some issues as I'm running Cent on Sun's VirtualBox.I have tried to add chkconfig --add gdm which didn't work, also there is no init.d script either for gdm so not sure if it's in a directory somewhere or if I have to create it manually??IF I run simply gdm from teh cli then everything is ok and starts fine....
I've installed CentOS 5.3 on a machine, and I need a Samba version 3.2 or higher. Since 3.4 is out, I thought I'd grab that. But, "yum list|grep samba" gives me only version 3.0.33. Is there a package of Samba I can grab that will upgrade the 3.0 installation so that I don't have two laying around? If not and I need to compile from source, do you have any suggestions for what arguments I should give configure? I'm not used to Linux coming from the BSD world
I recentlly updated my Centos 5.5 to 5.6 usnig yum update, and since then, the QT4 designer cannot be started. If I'm running it (I installed it from source to /usr/local/qt..) the command stuck and nothing happens. The wierd thing is that if I'm running "strace /usr/local/qt/bin/designer4" the program starts.
the start up fails, but a process is left running. these machines are running the latest stable version of Centos 5, and we have been "messing" with the firewall. When I'm logged on through a console, I get error messages that lockd can not contact the server even though the nfs mounted home directories work fine.
I have a fresh install of Cent OS 5.4 and am having a problem with Openoffice application not starting up, word processor, spreadsheet, etc. none of them start.
When I try to open word processor, It just loads for a bit says "starting word processor", then closes.
I uninstalled and reinstalled through add/remove software tool and that didn't help. I read somewhere that selinux causes problems with it so I disabled selinux, restarted, and that didn't change anything.
I have a dual-monitor setup. I have some programs which I would like to start automatically. I each one to start up full screen on a particular monitor, in a particular workspace. Then I can use the workspace facilities to easily switch between the programs, and they will always appear on the correct monitor, in the correct workspace. (At least one of the programs (VMWare Workstation) does not seem to be startable using the facilities to save the current session on logout.)
I have Dell rack server. With the network card of five network ports. But I am just using first one (eth0).
Now the problem:
Its connected the internet and the internet is working fine. I also got update using yum.
When I do ifconfig to check its dynamic IP. It also shows the IP(something like: 192.168.x.x), but if I go to services and try to start DHCPd service its fails. Its not starting at all. And If I go to other computer (Windows 7) and try to ping the dell servers IP, I cannot ping it. So since I cannot ping it from other computer, so no one we can have remote access to the dell server.
I dont understand without starting DHCPd how the dell server is getting the IP address.
So I thought maybe DHCP is corrupted so I removed it using yum and reinstalled it using yum, but no luck so far.
I have a problem, I'm have a course at high school (webserver management) in class this morning we had to install apache, php, ftp and so on but I didn't finish on time so when I got home I was playing around. I'm on wireless here and changed the vm connection from bridge to nat.
normally we had to install apache using yum (yum install httpd) and start the service. that's what I did and then we had to go to firefox (or IE) and type the ip of our server. but when I do I get "problem loading page" instead of the apache default page. I've set httpd runlever 2 to 5 to on and rebooted. but still not working.
Since latest large update to CentOS 5.3, which also upgraded to 5.4, I have problem with dnsmasq. CentOS is real server on real hardware (not virtual). I use dnsmasq as dhcp server as usual. On hardware startup or reboot, these lines are included in /var/log/messages
Nov 2 19:06:16 server avahi-daemon: New relevant interface eth0.IPv4 for mDNS. Nov 2 19:06:16 server avahi-daemon: Joining mDNS multicast group on interface eth0.IPv4 with address 192.168.0.1.
I have a service I've made an init script for, and it's added to chkconfig, which shows it "on" in all the correct runlevels. When I start or stop this service using the "service" command all is fine, but it does not start on it's own at bootup. I am currently at a loss to determine why it is not starting. Here is the script:
#!/bin/bash # chkconfig: 2345 95 10 # description: Start or stop home automation #
I had a server running Centos 5.5, which i have Webmin installed.. The other day i saw that there were updates available so i installed them, and now i have Centos 5.6 installed. I just had to reboot my server to move it, and now it wont boot. It is freezing at "Starting xend:"
