CentOS 5 :: Unable To Install Centos 5.5 X86_64 On Vmware Server 2.0.2?
Nov 6, 2010
I have an i5 Thinkpad running Windows 7 64-bit. VT is enabled in the BIOS. I have installed vmware server v 2.0.2 but am unable to install Centos 5.5 x86_64 as a guest OS. The steps that I followed are as follows:1. Created a new VM, specifying RHEL 5 64-bit as the intended guest OS (per vmware documentation - Centos is not available as a selection2. Downloaded all 8 iso files for Centos v5.5 64-bit3. Modified the CD/DVD drive to 'connect at power' and use an iso with the path pointing to the x86_64 iso 1 of 8When I power up the VM, the console window displays 'ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright (C) 1994-2005 H. Peter Anvin' and nothing else. The installation splash screen never appears. As a test, I downloaded the first of 7 iso files for the 32-bit version of Centos 5.5 and pointed the CD/DVD drive to that iso. In that case, the installation starts as expected. I would really like to get the 64-bit version installed and running.
I installed VMware server on my CentOS 5 machine. I had problems getting that working. Then I installed VMware Workstation. That worked fine. Then I tried using VMware server, but apparently VMware Workstation deleted some of VMware Servers files. So, I uninstalled VMware Workstation. Then I tried to reinstall VMware Server, but rpm complains package VMware-server-2.0.2-203138.x86_64 is already installed
i have lot of google search and make lot of suggestion found in google but without any solving for the problem. try to install vmware workstation any verion on my vps which have openvz and kernel 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.028stab068.9-x86_64 when try to install for exampil vmware workstation 5.5.3 found this problem
root@server [~]# vmware-config.pl Making sure services for VMware Workstation are stopped. Stopping VMware services: Virtual machine monitor [ OK ] Configuring fallback GTK+ 2.4 libraries. In which directory do you want to install the mime type icons? [/usr/share/icons]
This is my first post, I hope I'm the the right place. I installed mysql mysql-server php-mysql perl-DBD-mysql libdbi-dbd-mysql via "yum install -y" on a server running CentOS 5.3 X86_64 The install completes successful with no errors, but once I start mysqld via "chkconfig --level 35 mysqld on" ; "service mysqld start" There are no errors in /var/log/mysqld.log netstat shows mysqld listening on 3306 and localhost is in /etc/hosts
I can't install centos 5 on vmware esxi 4 server.I use the netinstall cdrom and I get the splash screen with the kernel menu.After this, I can choose a language but then I get this error: "The CentOS CD was not found in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the CentOS CD and press OK to retry."
I have tried it with the image on the datastore, a unc-path and as physical cdrom.I have tested all modes in the vmware cdrom settings (passthrogh IDE or Emulate IDE) - nothing helps.
I have a few mail servers, a mail log server and a web server running on Centos 5. Now I have a task: to avoid accidental crashes on the production servers while installing updates, my boss asked me to do clones (these clones will all be VMware virtual machines) of the servers (EXCLUDING the actual e-mails and log contents) and then to run those clones on VMWare Server. This way, first I will install and test updates on the clones and - if they will be running without crashes - I will apply the updates on the real production servers themselves.
I have already installed VMWare Server 2.0 I have a few questions: How do I build the virtual machines to exclude the actual mail files and mail logs? Can I use VMware Converter for this purpose, or do I have to use another program? How do I actually do this cloning? Is there a tutorial on how to do this?
[URL]VMware Workstation 7.0.1 Release Notes has a list of supported OS:[URL]According to that, RHEL 5.4 is listed as supported for both host andguest but CentOS 5.4 is only for guest. This is quite strange and, ifit is true, that could be a serious issue.I succeed to install vmware workstaion 7.1 on centos 5.5, but have run-time error:
[root@ ~]# /etc/init.d/vmware start Starting VMware services: VMware USB Arbitrator [ OK ]
I am in the process of building a new server on an Asus P5QPL-AM motherboard and an Intel E8600 processor.explain to me the difference between the two versions and what would you recommend.Also, is there any advantage of SATA over IDE hard drives?
I have checked and double checked the .htaccess and httpd.conf to make sure everything is correct and I'm sure it is. I have AllowOverride set to All in the httpd.conf, Apache sees and is reading the .htaccess because I get a 500 Error when I put garbage text in the file. I'm lost now.
My problem is that I'm trying to install CentOS 5.4 x86_64 DVD ISO on Supermicro X7SBI server with installed Adaptec RAID 3405 controller.
I created RAID 5 array and is working fine (adaptec status says Optimal) but I can't install CentOS to that array (1.5TB size).
Whenever I try to install with: linux dd
I'm asked for a driver, which I have downloaded from Adaptec site and extracted contents to USB drive (in installation found as /sba1) which has now a lot of IMG and some ISO files on it.
I try to load (I simplified names) RHEL5.img, CENTOS.img... with x64 names (one exact name: aacraid driverdisk-CentOS-x86_64.img) and I always get the error message: "No devices of the appropriate type were found on this driver disk"
This is going on for a week now and I can't find the right driver or something I'm doing wrong to get install done.
I just installed a fresh CentOS 5.2 32bit system. I used "The Perfect Server" server document from Howtoforge and went through those steps and then added Webmin administration console. I then tried to install VMware Workstation 6.5 onto the system. I downloaded the latest VMware bundle, ran it and everything went fine. I then try to run vmware and I get the following messages
C header files matching your running kernel were not found
Before youcan run VMware Workstation, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel

Looking at the various OS image download options, I see that I need to download/burn 8 ISO images for CentOS5.5 x86_64. Trying to see if it is at-all possible to avoid downloading/burning all 8 CD's, and make-do with the 1st one alone. My target platform is a commodity desktop running AMD AthlonII X2 250, with dual-channel 4GB DDR3 @1333MHz, and 500GB 7200rpm SATA (no RAID, SW or HW).
I read in another forum post that for minimal install without X, the 1st CD should suffice. Is this correct ? While I do not expect this forum to answer OpenVZ questions, but if someone happens to have experience in installing OpenVZ on such a system, how much extra I might have to download online, to get the system functional.
The guestOS in the OpenVZ partitions would be a mix of CentOS5.5 64-bit and 32-bit, and few running Ubuntu 10.04.1 32-bit. I am told that this is possible. Effectively it means I'd need the (pseudo?) 32-bit library support.
I'm trying to get a Digi Edgeport/8 working under x86_64 CentOS 5.3. This is a USB to serial conversion box that takes a single USB port and breaks it out into 8 DB-9 serial ports. We're running the 2.6.18-128.el5 x86_64.
This box has worked fine on many systems for us from RedHat 7.3 to Fedora Core 5 from everything back to the 2.4.20 kernel up to 220.127.116.11. On the CentOS box, in /boot/config-2.6.18-125.elf, the following is set:
i like to use my DVB-C Card KNC-One on Centos 5.5 x86_64. But i cant get it to work. on a 32 Bit Centos this is working like a charm. I tryed several different kernels together with the video4linux-kmdl
At the moment i am using this kernel: 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.centos.plus
i am not able to port 8080 on my CentOS VPS server.I have followed all the instuctions as mentioned on iptables wiki page.Also I am able to telnet my ip address and port number, But can not access from browser.
I have two Centos 5 servers one running Asterisk with PHP installed and another sever running as a MySql Database server, at the moment when I try run simple script to see if I can connect to the remote server I get the following error.Quote:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I have been searching for a software package that will install on CentOS5.4 x86_64 or RHEL5.4 x86_64 that I can allow users to access via the Internet for online web storage, pictures and they can manage their space (quota would be enforced). I am not having much luck finding any software?
While attempting to install CentOS 5.4 x86_64 from DVD (downloaded torrent), I encountered a fatal error that aborted the install and dumped a bunch of log files. I attempted this a couple of times resulting in the same error. I tested my hardware via CentOS 5.4 x86_64 live cd without exception. Here is my install configuration:
1)Booted to DVD 2)Skipped media test 3)English (English) 4)U.S. English
So I just got a new centOS box with PHP 5.1.something but I wanted it on PHP 5.2, initialy running
Code: yum update php returned Code: php-pecl-memcache-2.2.6-1.el5.x86_64 from installed has depsolving problems --> Missing Dependency: php-zend-abi = 20050922 is needed by package php-pecl-memcache-2.2.6-1.el5.x86_64 (installed)
Be it with different options to grub.conf... different options to vmware .vmx file ...
Configuration: host box that have an Intel Quad Core CPU Q8300.
Host is CentOS 5.5 64bit, VmWare 1.0.10, guests are CentOS 5.5 32bit (and an Ipcop test box that have 2.4.x kernel)
Considering the 3 CentOS 5.5 32 bit guests (same config for grub and ntpd), I have 1 VM that usually havent' any timedrift, the remaining 2 VMs gain about 15 mins every hour (!!!). constantly, indipendently from load or Similar problem for the IpCop VM.
I need to disable ntpd daemon and put a cron job because ntpd seems not work (but manual ntpdate work, so no fw problem). Sometime is one of the VM that have no driftime problem; after some host reboot, is another. No matter how I configure it (apparently). The VM's hwclock have little or no drift, the system clock have the drift ... I can't find any logic on this ... Some months ago I use Vmware Server 2.x, but switched to 1.x for the annoyng glib problem and the not appreciated new interface. Initially no problems, next (little time before updating the host from 5.4 to 5.5), problems started ... so no apparent ralations with update from 5.4 to 5.5.
I have a new public mail server running under Vmware Server 2.0 installed on Windows Server 2008. I'm not satisfy about performance, virtual machine has got 3gb of ram and 2 virtual cpu. Physical machine has got one intel xeon cpu 2.4ghz quad core, 8 gb of ram and 3 hdd 500gb raid5. I already set this option: Fit all virtual machine memory into reserved host RAM. How can I increase performance? Are there any kernel build for virtual installation?
