I'm trying to install Pure-FTPd. I'm going to use it via the internal file-based userlist.The problem is, when I yum install pure-ftpd from rpmforge or CentOS.Karan.Org, I also get mysql, perl-DBI and postgresql-libs as dependencies.Since I'm not intrested in DB-based authentication, I'd strongly prefer to skip these packages.Why are these listed as dependencies, since AFAIK, they are not really dependencies? Can I force yum to skip them somehow?
I am running an FTP server using Pure-FTPD which was a migration from an OS-X workstation to Fedora 10 - VMware esxi.
This was done for various reasons but the reason for choosing the Pure-FTPD app was due to an easier migration.
The system has been migrated for about a month and works very well. I installed it on the server using yum install pure-ftpd, configured it and imported all the accounts [about 150 accounts] so this is all fab. however we now want to see if we can get an upload notification.
This has lead me to look at the uploadscript option in pure-ftpd. we use virtual users and the pure-pw file.
When we set the directive
The ftp server hangs, I cant seem to see how to get this to work, from my investigation I think the issue is that the yum install is not building the app " --with-uploadscript " i have tried to do a hand install on a test Fedora 10 VM, I downloaded pure-ftpd-1.0.27.tar.gz and unpacked it, did a ./configure --with uploadscript then a make and make install, nothing reports any errors but it doesnt seem to install anything. I can start the server from a command line but there are no config directories ? and even after creating a new user and a passwd-mkdb i cant log in to the server. but that most likely as i dont have a full configuration. but i can t find where to put the configuration files.
I have created a virtual machine of a system running Fedora Core 4 and I need to upgrade it to Fedora Core 10. Based on what I have read, it iis possible so I started theupgrade process. I get an error message saying that /dev/hda6 (my root paritition does not exist) even though it does.
Does the installer need to read a label from /etc/fstab? I executed tune2fs -L / /dev/hda6 amd ,and added LABEL=/ for the corresponding entry for fstab. but the FEDORA CORE 10 is still giving the same problems for the installation process. Should I upgrade to an intermediate verson like Fedora Core 7 first?
I try to configurate a POS-System (Point of Sale - i hope pay desk is the right english word for it). The System is a BattleNetX and a Touch-Display (BA73-A) from the concern named Wincore Nixdorf (Germany). Currently, I try to install the driver for the Touchpanel on Fedora Core (12 I hope, but it can [edit: i mean can not] be important because the driver is older than FC12 ). Because, I am not the Linux adept, I work contiguous on the manual. Now, I have a problem by a step. I must compile a adjust driver for the Kernel. But 'make' give me everytime a error. Here you see:
I just bought a netbook that came with Ubuntu. I partitioned the drive so I can multiboot and have put Fedora Core 12 LXDE spin next to Ubuntu netbook edition. The netbook is System76 manufacturer and they have put all their drivers in a .deb package. How can I use this file in Fedora Core 12?
just did Red Hat Linux (Fedora Core 2) install. It's the only OC on the machine. Boots and everything seems to work just fine. Everything but the operator, that is!
I want to install FireFox and Thunderbird and AVG (free) antivirus so I first went to the Mozilla site for a download, only to discover that the best way to install is as part of a Package Manager.
Fair enough - but what is a package manager? Part of the distro? Where do I get one for these items?
UPDATE - I figured out the Package manager thing and no , FireFox is not an option, nor is Thunderbird or any antivirus.
If I can't get a package manager, the site tells me that I can install with me as the only user by downloading and typing in a couple of commands (Unzip and run, I think). But I get a report that I need a something or other file (library?) for it to run. How do I find that file and why would I be the only user? Surely as root I can set it up for all users can't I?
I guess the short(er) question is: How does a new user download and install a program onto a new setup without a package manager?
Question 2 - this install is for a class and the instructor wants screen prints as proof I'm doing certain operations. How do I get a screen print of, say, a history listing and can I save the screen print or view into a file for submission?
I cannot install Fedora core 10. It boots up and it gets to the Fedora 10 loading screen. After that it complains my monitor is out of Range and that's as far as I can go. I had originally thought I could get to some text install mode, but I don't make it far enough to do that.
I am in school for my CIS degree and the book I am using this session covers Windows XP and Fedora Core 4. I am having trouble finding & downloading Fedora Core 4. My question is: Is there a big enough difference between Fedora Core 4 and Fedora Core 14 that I would not be able to use 14 instead of 4?
I am attempting to install a custom fedora build but it crashed, I then attempted the standard fedora build (.iso) burned on a CD and I got to the boot window but at some point following the colored lines going across the bottom of the screen it froze. symptom - monitor still on not hibernating, num key works caps lock doesn't , hard drive is spinning and so is CD drive. Has anyone had issue loading this build onto similar hardware?
I have learnt that the network locked huawei modems may be unlocked to use any sim card bu getting a special unlock code and it should ask for it when a "foreign" SIM card is inserted. This procedure works well in Windows, but in Linux where I use wvdial, I dont get prompted for this unlock code. Does anyone know how to insert the unlock code in Linux using any Linux tool (GAMMU/GNOKII/Minicom etc)?
how to install the modem Sierra Wireless AC775 on Fedora Core 6. Fedora 6 detects the modem, but does not establish it as a device. And no entries in the directory /dev about modem. Startup Fedora 6 said that the initialization eth1 failed because no device serial_cs.
I have installed Scientific Linux 4.8 (based on RedHat Enterprise 4) on my old Samsung X10 laptop which previously had a working WinXP on it. Due to a broken screen connector I cannot use my laptop screen so I use a separate monitor connected via a serial link.
The linux install seemed to work fine except now when I boot up I eventually get a screen completely covered with flashing artefacts and I cannot see any desktop like environment. Although in the initial stages of the boot-up I do see white text on a black background zipping by.
I actually saw similar screen artefacts at the beginning of the installation when I chose the 'graphical install mode' (I re-started the install in 'text mode' to see it working).
I will be very pleased if someone can help me fix this as I have been wanting to get into linux for ages and this is my first plunge.
Is it possible to do a 'minimal' install similar to Arch Linux or Sabayon Linux CoreCD?Would these be done by checking/unchecking packages from the DVD?Reason for this is, that I want to install XFCE and/or other DE besides GNOME or KDE, but want to do it from a 'clean' install.I don't like the custom spins because they are not 64bit...
I have a command line OCR program called OCR Shop XTR (Vividata corp) that I am using on a system with a 6-core AMD chip. I changed the bios so that the 6-cores were activated, but htop shows me that while the program is running, I am only getting activity on one core (the program maxes out the one core with consistent usage between 97% and 100%).
I have read that many programs are not written to take advantage of multiple core cpu's. However, I am just hoping that there is some way to get this program to take advantage of the extra cores. Does anyone know of a way to invoke programs from the command line which would spread the workload out among additional cores?
