It is the first time have I used VPN. I installed OpenVPN in my Fedora 11 computer. I did it following:URL...And I stopped at step 16: service openvpn start . The service can not start up. Even if I disabled Selinux . Does anyone know how to treat this trouble.
i just installed Fedora 12, clean without anything change in it. I opened services dialog, and the openvpn service have status:dead, however it shows that it is enabled.when i try to run it as:/sbin/service openvpn start.It write OK. However if check it:/sbin/service openvpn status it write that service not running. What is a point of a problem? I have opened openvpn in FireWall,however without success, may be some additionsl services for openvpn are not running?
This was working and stable on f-10 and f-11. Fresh f-12 install including openvpn, Copied /etc/openvpn/* to new system as root from working f-11 syatem. /etc/init.d/openvpn start (and stop) works as advertised HOWEVER when set to start at boot using chkconfig or Services Configuration program, openvpn does not start. I must manually start it every time. When started, it does work without error messages in the log.
I tried removing the NetworkManager-vpn module with no effect. Thought it could somehow be overriding the auto startup of openvpn at boot.
I used samba on FedoraCore2 before...and now i cannot config the same on FC10. I cannot start the service smb ( /etc/init.d/smb restart or service smb restart ) those commands dont work. How can i do to config samba service.
I have a couple of problems - and am new to Fedora which, up until about three days ago, was flawless.Am using KDE on F13. (Gnome & LXDE are also installed.)First problem is easy to solve, I think. How do I prevent "inactive" windows from fading out? It's an incredibly inconvenient feature and utterly defeats the whole purpose of the "Always on Top" option! I can't seem to find the option anywhere?On to KPackageKit. It has been trying to update KDE for the last three days but always gets hung up with the message: "Waiting for Service to Start."I notice that this problem might be listed as a Bug? - but not entirely sure.Is there a straightforward solution to this or is it, in fact, a bug?It also wants me to repeatedly restart because a new Kernel 18.104.22.168-124.fc13 has supposedly been installed.
How can I start the vncserver serivce before any uesr log in? because I only have one screen now what I already did is when I log in the vncserver service going to be startup, but I want it can start before I log in. I try the "chkconfig --level 345 vncserver on" but after I reboot, I still cannot access the system before I have a log in action.
Does anyone know a secure method for starting a service after a user logs in to the desktop environment? There are a couple of issues that I'm trying to work around / troubleshoot and this would assist with doing that.
I'm running Fedora 11, not sure if that matters for this question.
I performed the first update in 4 months to my Fedora 12 Constantine. I also removed a 'dial-up' package (figured i didnt need it) and the KDE package after the update. Firefox was not getting a connection to the internet at this point. The network view showed the ethernet as inactive. Everything besides Firefox appears to work fine.
I restart machine.
It boots until right after the fedora logo fills up. At this point my dual monitors go to sleep. No response from anything. When I start in interactive mode I hit y for everything. Everything works great until libvirtd, libvirt-guest, and local. After y on all three nothing happens. I can type on the screen but no response. It just sits there. I can boot into text mode and do whatever I want. What can I do? What other information do I need to move forward?
I have looked at the Xorg.0.?? i forget what its called. I am not versed in reading the messages in it. Same for the other logs I looked at.

I have one problem regarding my web server. When I am try to restart my httpd service it shows...
[root@localhost ~]# service httpd restart Stopping httpd: [FAILED] Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 no listening sockets available, shutting down Unable to open logs [FAILED] [root@localhost ~]#
Just installed a Sparkle GeForce 8400 GS on my Dell Dimension 2350 running FC9. As stated, every time the system goes to start the card, a stack trace occurs. I know the first thing that everyone will ask for is the output from the stack trace, but for the life of me I can't capture it. Tried grabbing the STDOUT and SDTERR from the 'service start' command, but nothing interesting is ever there. If anyone knows if and where such things get stored, just letting me know that would help. I assumed there would be something in /var/log, but no. For some reason, there's a lot of python errors in the output. I imagine I could try to type in as much of the output as possible, but I'm hoping someone has seen this before.
Anyway, I've tried the Nvidia install executable, the nvidia-newest RPMs, the nvidia-96xx RPMs and they all fail the same way. I also can't get the card to come up as the primary device on boot, which I don't think should be a problem since they all boot into VGA mode, don't they? If I disable the internal video setup in the BIOS, the machine freezes on bootup with blinking lights on the keyboard, which I imagine is the BIOS's way of telling me there's no monitor available.
I also tried getting the nv and nouveau drivers going with no luck. They are installed on the machine, but I'm embarrassed to say I don't know how to get them configured. Not really a driver guy, I guess. Also, the reason I installed this card is to get TVOUT, and I don't know if generic drivers will have support for that sort of thing.
At this point, I'm just looking for a way forward. One thing I remember is that when I removed the 'fglrx' drivers (because they conflicted with the NVIDIA stuff) I remember that a few python/fglrx based packages went with it. I'm wondering if that could be at the root of the failure, given the python errors in the stack trace.
Recently i've upgraded my fedora 11 to 12 using the preupgrade command and now I have a problem booting! when i start the interactive boot it hangs after trying to run the service local, it looks as if its trying to boot because the cursor blinks really fast then blinks normally after a few seconds. no error was stated during the event. what seems to be the problem here?
As I reported in this bug:[URL].. root is not able to start an openvpn-connection via the "nmcli"-command to control NetworkManager, whereas my user does not run in any problems with this command. My error output when starting as root is as follows:
Code: # nmcli con up id "my-openvpn" Active connection state: unknown Active connection path: /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/ActiveConnection/5 state: VPN connecting (need authentication) (2) Error: Connection activation failed: no valid VPN secrets.
Does anybody know what to do about this strange behaviour? The vpn-secret seems to be stored in the gnome-keyring and in the /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/my-openvpn simultaneously. But root cannot access any of these. Why this is important? I'm trying to set up a dispatcher-script to automatically start openvpn on eth-connection. but this does throw the exact error from above (no valid vpn secrets..).
In an effort to reduce/eliminate adware, I installed Provoxy from the F12 repos using yumex. The config file is unchanged except for the addition of the this line: forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .
I note that rpm placed the following (/etc/rc.d/init.d/privoxy), and that in that file are the following lines:
I seem to recall that network manager was changed somewhat to allow those using static ip addressing to NOT do dhcp on boot. Could this be the reason for the non-starting of the privoxy service on boot? Sometimes it starts on boot, and other times I must manually start it in Gnome's System->Services.
If these lines and the network starting is the problem, how do I fix it? Can I comment out these lines in this file, or is there somewheres else where I should be looking?
I have to say, I'm a little astonished at how anxious people are to bypass password checks on networks, all for the convenience of having things come up automatically. But given the world as we find it, I'm seeking a different approach.
I have an OpenVPN network. It works fine, but for my laptop, I've selected a client certificate that requires a password, so that if it falls into nefarious hands, the thief will not have immediate access to the VPN.
I'm trying not to have any data at all on the laptop (yes, a waste of a 500GB drive). So I want the VPN up even before I log in through the GUI.
It would be nice if the boot-up sequence would pause for the openvpn start script to ask for this password. I see the script contains a line "# X-Interactive: true" which I understand from documentation is supposed to accomplish this. But it doesn't. OpenVPN simply fails to start, which is better than the alternative, but a pain.
I have already disabled the splash screen (having been around Linux for over ten years, I am more comfortable seeing boot-up messages anyway, though even on this x86 they flash on so quickly I'm not sure I'm really gaining anything).
I have installed fedora 13 in my system. httpd server is also installed. when I tried to start the service of httpd, following error message displayed: Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
