Fedora :: F15: /var/log/dmesg Not Being Updated?

Jun 13, 2011

I run F15 on my desktop PC and /var/log/dmesg is not being updated. I used preupgrade to upgrade from F14 to F15 on June 3. I boot F15 at least once per day. /var/log/dmesg has not been updated since June 3. /var/log/dmesg was being updated correctly when I ran F14. On f15, if I issue "dmesg" from the command line, I get the expected result. Is this a bug?

Fedora :: Exactly How Does Dmesg Work?

Jul 21, 2010

I am new here and have only been using Linux for about 3 months so please help by explaining things clearly and don't assume I should know. However, for reasons too detailed to mention here I want to know how dmesg works. What I understand is that it provides log details of the startup, hardware etc until logger takes over. What I want to know is this: Do you still get new log messages in dmesg after boot and after the logger has taken over or is it simply a snapshot of what happens at boot time If you shutdown you machine or more importantly something happens to cause it to crash, does it or is it possible to make it record dmesg logs or is it purly a function of boot up

Red Hat / Fedora :: Usb Error In Dmesg

Apr 20, 2011

When I connect to the internal usb port, i find the following error msg in dmesg :

usb 3-2: device descriptor read/all, error -71

Is this benign, can i ignore?

The message doesnot appear when I connect to the external ports.

googling pointed me to this [URL]

AT the moment the stick is being detected and all works. But still confused as to whether I have a serious problem that may lead to the usb stick going missing or hanging at some point or is this error msg just a spurious one that I can safely ignore?

Fedora :: Possible Bug In Updated GnomeManager?

Dec 11, 2009

I did my updates for F11 as I do often and afterwards booted in verbose mode to see anything different.The update was done 3 days ago and here's the log file..Starting NetworkManager daemon: ** (NetworkManager:1899): WARNING **: State file /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state parsing failed: (2) Error creating state directory /var/lib/NetworkManager: 13.[60G[[0;32m OK [0;39m]As noted, it says OK and the network still connects as usual but this warning msg didn't happen until the update.Is this a bug with the new Gnome Network mgr or could it be related to the new F12 release?I plan to upgrade or clean install F12 soon. Been using F11 since Aug.5 and I really like it by far the most stable Gnome of any distro I've tried. Was a KDE fan until now lol. I never liked the idea of KDE4.x but it is maturing. But-- most dists don't even offer tried-true KDE 3.5.10 anymore.ay need to fwd this issue with GnomeNetworkManager to the bug forums for Fedora/RHEL.UPDATE: I installed the updated SElinux Policy (testing) via rpmfind.net.selinux-policy and selinux-policy-targeted and the issue with the NetworkManager error went away!!I assume this package will be released as an update soon

Fedora Installation :: How To Updated To 13 From Core 4

Sep 27, 2010

I set up my home server like 3 year ago on a Fedora core 4, I am running a NAT, firewall and FTP very smoothly on it. In the past 3 years, it has been doing perfectly without any modification/ upgrade. But recently, I just realized I might need a VPN server on it, but the recent release of OpenVPN doesn't support Fedora core 4 anymore, therefore I suddenly want to make an upgrade. I've read the articles/ manual for Fedora 13, yet I do not find any suggestion on how to upgrade to 13 from core 4.

how can I do an upgrade in the easiest manner as I don't want the server cease working too long (I need its NAT for my network).

Software :: Where Is Dmesg Output Stored

Sep 9, 2010

I have enabled usb storage debug prints for the debugging of my driver in kernel of Fedora 8. When I type dmesg and press enter I see many prints on the screen. There are however lot many prints and I want all those prints from the beginning. However it seems that the older prints are overwritten with newer prints. SO if just redirect the dmesg output to some file, I get only newest prints but older are lost.

Surprisingly /var/log/messages doesn't contain those prints! Also I see there is a file named /var/log/dmesg , but that files never gets updated with the prints I see on the screen. So, my question is can I get all those dmesg prints right from the beginning in a file somewhere?

Red Hat :: Load Average And Errors On Dmesg

Jan 18, 2011

I have two servers. One in production (lets call it the OLD ONE) and the other (lets call it the NEW ONE) in tests to replace the OLD ONE.This is the basic hardware of each one: (I can post more detailed info if you need, but beside the erros on dmesg, look at the the L2 cache of the NEW ONE )

Old one:
2 quad core processors that linux recognize as 8 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5440 @ 2.83GHz - 32Kb L1 - 6Mb L2
48Gb RAM

New one:
8 quad core processor that linux recognize as 32 x AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6136 @ 2.400Mhz (- 64Kb L1 - 512Kb L2
128Gb RAM

The scenario:We run a dataflex system on the old one, with average of 3000 users, with tops at 3300 users and sometimes less then 2000. In the old one, we have a load average from 2 to 6 with the 3000 users, depending on the type of application (sometimes we run reports to txt files that take more then 6 hours to complete and the load average can raise to 12). 85% of this conections are from remote links.
Dataflex is a language that derives from C that have their own sgbd (if we can call it that way), and have a limit of 2gb per table. This size we almost have on 5 tables and we use a dataflex feature to compress the data.

The problem:We are migrating (or trying to) the tables to oracle, so we bought new machines for the DB and the new one to replace the old one, becouse we think that could not handle the job with 2 oracles (load balance).In some tests we could see (or suposed) that the oracle database was not so fast with more then 1000 users (opening same table and doing the same task) and we decided to test the new one with the system that is in production right now, with dataflex tables, to ensure that the problem could be oracle.We change the HDs and IP. Started the system on the new one, and started to monitorate as the real users start their jobs. At 800 users the Load Average raised to 26 and with 1300 users we had more then 115 on Load Average. More users login in and the TOP become slow, pointing 400 of LA. From here we started to get some "Lock time out" erros and we had to change to the old one again, to prevent corruption on the tables. I'm analizing all report tools I know about performance and hardware and I cant see nothing. I saw some errors on dmesg, but I can say that is related to that problem.

Slackware :: Deleted 'dmesg' By Mistake?

May 30, 2011

had upgraded from slackware 13 to 13.1 and finally 13.37.After this I noticed that 'dmesg' could only be executed as root. So inorder for a user to execute 'dmesg' I executed 'ln -s /bin/dmesg /usr/bin/dmesg'.What happened next is the symlink was created but the dmesg executable was deleted.I do not want to reinstall the OS (very time consuming on a P3 with 512MB RAM) so I want to know which package provides dmesg so that I can reinstall it.The dmesg man page indicated that klogd will provide the package but then when I reinstalled it it was a no go.

Fedora Installation :: Virtualbox Repo Not Being Updated

Jan 18, 2010

I installed VirtualBox (and the virtualbox repo) a few months ago and it works brilliantly. The other day it informed me there was an update available. I downloaded: VirtualBox-3.1-3.1.2_56127_fedora11-1.x86_64.rpm from [URL]

Why doesn't yum update find these new versions of VirtualBox? Is the original repo file out of date? Here it is:

# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/virtualbox.repo

Fedora :: Requirement For Updated Software To A Reboot?

Feb 19, 2010

I am relatively new to Fedora and appreciate it is intended to be a bleeding/leading edge distribution but the continual requests to reboot the computer after updates is intrusive and seems rather odd for a unix operating system. It is often not clear to me why it is necessary when I look at the names of the items triggering the request.

Fedora :: Old Fc12 Packages Still On Updated Machine?

Jul 15, 2010

I did my update back when F13 was first out. A lot of the F12 packages are still on the machine. Should I be concerned. My latest thing was dealing with the Kmod-Nvidia packages left behind from F12. Someone suggested removing them and once I did my updater did its job perfectly.

So, the question is do I need to remove all the F12 packages or should I wait until there is another conflict? Secondly, if I should remove them, is it a search and destroy mission or can I simply nuke them all in one grouping?

Fedora Installation :: How To Keep F13 Updated To Latest Release

Jul 31, 2010

I'm currently running F11 x86 and want to update to F13 x64, so a new drive and fresh install and copy all the config & data from old drive. and Prey, a lot....I'll be installing F13 x64 later this weekend, But F14 will be out in a few months then F15 and so on.I've tried the upgrade option (x86 to x86 in the past) on the install dvd but it doesn't work and I wind up with a broken install and have to do a fresh install after saving most of the import data and config files, but I usually missing something and get hosed. Part of the problem could be using Nvidia drivers for video and several applications installed from several different repos.I've never been able to safely uninstall the Nvidia driver and still have a working system, let alone upgrade to a newer version and still get a visible desktop.

I was thinking that couldn't I just edit a yum file and point it to a new repository and have it upgrade the machine with out all the fuss?I followed a procedure once or twice on how to do a inplace upgrade, but that didn't work either. I'd like to keep the machine running the latest bits, but with all the pain and suffering I need a simpler method to do it. Is there a procedure or process I can run or follow to keep Fedora in sync with the latest release with out having to continuously swap disks, reinstall and copy critical data files?
