Fedora Servers :: Files Show Up When Viewed Through NFS But Not Locally?
Jul 19, 2011
I have just tested this 3 times now and everytime I got the same result. I have two identical servers, they are both IBM x345 and everything has been copied directly from one to the other so they are exact duplicates other than the hard drive and partition sizes. When copying over the /svn directory it looks like everything copied successfully (I have tested rsync and cp) but when I go to look at the files locally there is nothing there. I can view the files without issue over the nfs share that I am using to copy the files but nothing is there locally. Even df shows that there is nothing there. The other server on the network shows the files there and using du I can see that the size is correct on all of them.
Before anyone suggests this is a permission issue, I was using root to see if the files are there but even root does not see anything. I am completely lost on this and even google does not seem to come up with anything. The servers are running fedora 12, the /etc/exports file is placed below.

There are a few very important man pages having UTF-8 translations. Those UTF-8 man pages cannot be viewed unless a groff wrapper (http://www.haible.de/bruno/packages-groff-utf8.html) is also installed.
Please either remove those man pages or include that groff-utf8 wrapper in slackware. [Edit] I believe removing those man pages is better since the translations are often incomplete and inaccurate.
i installed phpmysql on F12 and it keeps prompting me for a user name and password. i tried login in with my root password but it does not permit me. How do i bypass this please. Also Aache wont let me view other locally hosted sites on my derver directory. restricts my permission.
I'm adding a GUI to my server for specific admin tasks (Xubuntu desktop), and the major one I have in mind is MythTV setup, which uses X server. How can I run an X session locally? Ie. I'm looking to VNC into my server, then from there start an app that displays mythtv-setup in an X environment.
I have an Ubuntu Server, a dyndns account and an account with [URL]. My DynDns stuff is all working just great - novo.dyndns.tv is the address. Now I need a domain which I have already bought, to be linked to that machine at [URL] I signed up with freedns.afraid.org and now I am a bit confused at what records to add where. I added a domain - [URL] then setup a webforward as follows: redirect from [URL] and redirect from[URL] to [URL] , however if you go and visit:[URL] you will see my problem! It takes you back to [URL] server and says there is not a webforward setup for [URL]This tells us that the nameservers are all setup fine - and its something in my freedns config which is failing.
I'm trying to setup postfix (or exim, I don't mind which), so I can move away my last remaining PC from Windows.I've tinkered with Postfix for good part of a month and I can get it to accept emails using SMTP and post them to a virtual mailbox based on MySQL tables. And it rejects mail addressed to local email addresses that it can't find in the table.
First question (or problem.) I've set up Postfix to relay email it cannot deliver locally such as is the case when you send out an email. My remote host requires authentication. How can I set this up?
Second question: I want to force my clients to use either AUTH, TLS or SSL, and not allow anonymous connections (to prevent an open relay server.) How do I set that up without interfering with the smarthost setting? The smarthost login is not one of my clients, it's a pre-determined login and password that is solely used for the email relaying aspect.
I have apache installed and I have it all setup so that when I create a user, in their home directory i created a folder called public_html and then that user can upload web content. Users then can browse to their site by going to[URL],,.How can I get apache to show a different or default page if the user does not have a index.html file in their public_html folder. Cause if they dont, you get a 401 saying you dont have permissions to view, etc. So id like apache to default to something else if the user doesnt have a index.html.
I've spent days trying to setup access properly from a public address to a monitoring server that works fine locally. Everything works from public access until I try to link to a CVS repository. The rancid CVS repository is set up as a separate server (virtualhost). It appears the referring link causes a DNS error (105: Server Not Found) when the CVS repository server is accessed from the public address. Things work fine when accessing via localhost.
Public link: (this results in 105 error caused by redirection (bold portion of link))
I am an Ubuntu refugee. Allow me to explain what happened. I am dual booting with Windows 7 and F15 x64.
(1) I wanted to created a shortcut of my "Documents" folder in my Windows in Nautilus (2) I opened the Windows drive by double clicking the drive under Devices, and navigated to my "Documents" folder (F15 already has ntfs-3g installed so no hassles there) (3) I then dragged the folder to the sidebar to place it under the Trash icon--but for some reason, it would not let me do this, and accidentally got placed in the Trash bin. (4) problem is I can't see this folder in the Trash bin (it is not even hidden) (5) To check if the Trash bin actually captures items when we move files/folders to Trash, I tried sending a folder from my Home directory to Trash, and the folder appears in the Trash; it can even be restored to Home. (6) Only files/folders from the NTFS formatted Windows drive do not appear in the Trash folder if sent there. (7) I have Google searched this problem, but to no avail. (8) I even thought that because the drive is not mounted 'officially' I would mount it using command line:
(9) But still I can't see the folders in the Trash (10) Interestingly, when I try to unmount the Windows drive 'formally' then I get a message if I want to "empty the Trash"--I obviously chose not to--so I know there is my Windows Documents folder in there somehere.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 from the alternative installation CD; the installation was just the command line system. On top of this I have installed xorg and awesome window manager. The only problem I am having is with sound; I am unable to hear sound played through both browser-based Flash and locally stored files.
Is there something that I have to do before I can use sound? Edit: I have solved the original problem however I would like to know if I can remove pulseaudio as it seems that I am only using alsa.
I have noticed that the files and folders search in Unity, only shows up those files which have been amended (or possibly just opened) since the install.
i was wondering if there was a way i could have the search index (or something vaguely equivalent) all the files on my machine. This is especially important given that i reinstall the OS every six months on a new distribution cycle, copying all my old files across.
Without being able to see my old files the search is pretty much reduced to a recent history search.
I am newer to Linux ( using Ubuntu 10.04) : I have noticed that during replacement of a file , no date and size of the new and old files are shown in the dialogue box so how to show that ( like the one in windows)
I know that it is easy question , but i really don't know how to do that , by the way I have checked folder preferences and system --> preferences but i did not find something for that
I need to recreate in a local folder called /distro/fedora/ the full directory tree (including eventually hidden files, symlinks, etc.) contained in the .iso file just downloaded (Fedora-15-i686-Live-Desktop.iso).
I understand I can mount the ISO image using something like this:
mount -ro loop /path/to/image.iso /mnt
but then, which would be the best way to get a copy exact of what I see underneath /mnt in to /distro/fedora ?
using the System->Preferences->Remote Desktop i have setup a fresh ubuntu install to share its screen.
from my OSX 10.6 machine, i have tried connecting via Chicken of the VNC and Jolly's Fast VNC Client, both will successfully connect and show the full screen on access, but fail to update the screen after this.
the only way to update it is to disconnect my VNC session and reconnect again.
the Ubuntu desktop is being VERY responsive to mouse gestures over VNC, so this seems to be a one way issue.
I'm trying to make some pages. For this I try to host them locally. However, when I have an error in my PHP code, the server shows an internal error 500 page and doesn't show on what line and what compile error it encountered. There is no such information in the error log either. What should I do about it, it's not really nice to comment all the lines and then try to uncomment them one by one. I've been googling for a while, but didn't find anything.. I forgot to mention, I;m using Fedora :P, the apache that came with it and mysql and php from the repository...
I've been having this problem when viewing online videos/tv, primarily channel4.com/4od and similar sites.
The videos load up and play with no problems, but if the view is shifted away from the video (e.g. scrolling down the page so the video is no longer visible or switching to another tab or window), after a little while (up to a few minutes) the audio from the video stops and, upon returning to the video window, the video has been replaced with a light grey rectangle. The problem seems to be different from others described here since the videos themselves are running with no problem until the view shifts away from them. Flash-based chat applications have the same problem.
I'm running Firefox 3.6.15 in Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick). All systems updated repeatedly, as far as I know the problem has existed forever. The issue doesn't seem to exist in Chromium, interestingly (but I prefer Firefox...)
Any suggestions on diagnostics to try to find the cause and solution?
I'm running apache2 on Hardy and Karmic machines. I converted some .flv's to .wmv's using VLC and embedded them in my index.html file. Now, when I go to view them from Vista machines (32 or 64, IE or Firefox), they look compressed or skinny like this: [URL] When viewed on other Ubuntu or XP machines, they look fine.
I'm going to be launching my website soon, and I found a company to host it on one of their dedicated servers. I think I'm going to go with fedora as to OS, and well my problem is I'm having trouble finding a company to backup up my files, that both supports fedora and well is reasonably priced.
When sending an HTML formatted email with KMail and viewing this email on an MS Exchange Outlook client, all the empty lines are removed. This appears to be a known issue (KMail & HTML. - KDE Community Forums), but I was hoping anyone here knows a workaround for this....?
This is REALLY annoying when using KMail in a business setting, since emails look embarrassing on a customer's email client (which is in 99% of the cases Outlook, I'm afraid).
