General :: RHEL 5.3 Server - Building Customized Install DVD

Mar 13, 2010

I have 50 identical workstations that are being dropped shipped from the vendor directly to the remote locations. I need to install a identical configuration, including installed packages, scripts and customize configuration onto each of this workstations. I cannot set up a kickstart server to install from remotely because of my organizations security policies. Not to mention that it would be painfully slow. I thought about DD-ing my "Master" build and sending it to the remote sites, but some of the admins are not very Linux savvy. I would really like to build a bootable DVD that would install the cloned Master build from my server to theirs. I was looking for something that would look like Anaconda to the person installing the image. If I could get them through this base install I think it would be easy to document how to change the workstation unique parameters or value. How to accomplished this? BTW, this will be a RHEL 5.3 server install.

Fedora :: Recover .config After Building Customized Kernel

Oct 18, 2010

Supposed I have built customized kernel rpm four times in a row and the latest built kernel failed. If I still have all four files, is there any way that I could get back the .config file used for each of those four builds? I really could not recall exactly what changes I had made in .config for each build.

Software :: Create A Softlink When Building An Rpm In RHEL 5.5?

Apr 18, 2011

I am trying to build an tk.8.4.19 with the rpmbuild command. In the spec file there is a make command that uses the supplied Makefile that builds tk and untars it to the build directory /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/tk_8.4.19/unix .

The issue is that /usr/bin/wish is compiled with the make command and renamed to wish8.4, , and when the rpm does build it does not contain the link /usr/bin/wish -> /usr/bin/wish8.4 and there are other custom rpms on our systems (built by other people) that call /usr/bin/wish.

I have tried adding the ldconfig ln -sf /usr/bin/wish8.4 /usr/bin/wish in the %install and %build directives, it is in the tar file. I have tested it by creating the tar with the link and creating a null file call wish but it never gets built into the rpm. Whenever I call out /usr/bin/wish in the %file directive the rpm wont build.

I believe it will install and create the link if I tell it to ignore or skip the prereq check. That requires options to the yum command but it creates a problem because I need to to work with yum -y install <tk> or yum -y upgrade <tk> through a unattended script.

Bottom line is that I need the file to exist in the rpm or after the install and yum needs to be aware that /usr/bin/wish link is there so it doesn't require an override option during install.

Server :: Install Kernel-PAE On A RHEL 5 2.6.18-53 Server ?

May 20, 2010

I am trying to look at installing the PAE module on a RHEL 5 2.6.18-53 system and I cannot seem to find that around. I had hoped to find out if installing the CentOS 5 2.6.18-128 or 2.6.18-164 kernel-PAE modules would have a lot of negative consequences? Perhaps one of you could direct me to a download site that would provide kernel-PAE for a 2.6.18-53 build?

Ubuntu Installation :: Customized Install Of 10.04rc From CD?

Apr 24, 2010

I have the cd image for the install cd of ubuntu 10.04 release candidate. Before I install it, is there anyway to specify which of the default packages I DO NOT want to install (via command line arguments or some other means). There is ALOT of things I DO NOT want, like firefox, "cloud one", "social features", totem, rythmbox, "music store", empathy. I know that the cd allows you to adjust the command arguments for the install command, and something tells me that there should be an argument for specifying which packages to install/not-install or to choose from a list or something to the same effect.

Server :: Postfix: Customized Reject Message Per Virtual Domain (or User)?

Jul 30, 2010

I have a mail server taking care of mail for my 4 domains; the first is used for virtually all mail, the second rarely used anymore, the third is virtually 100% spam the past year(?), and the fourth isn't in use (and never has been, so no spam). What I'd like to do is to reject all mail to the third domain. Right now this is what I get (I tried to send to a nonexistent address from gmail):


Since my username (xyz@) is the same for all domains, I could (or so I hope) change the reject message to give a hint to replace [URL] with [URL] and try again.

Ubuntu :: Install Customized ISO With DM-Crypt Boot Disk?

Jan 7, 2011

I just bought a new laptop which will be running SSD (Corsair 120GB) as the boot drive and would like to migrate my OS to the new system. One of my requirements is full-disk encryption. I work with proprietary client data and need to encrypt the new drive, its swap partition, everything except for /boot. I've read instructions for doing this from the alternate install CD, but my OS is disturbingly customized (started out as 10.04) and it would take months to rebuild everything. I keep remastersys (-dist) ISOs to ensure I don't have to go through that process, but the ubiquity installer does not appear to have the option of doing disk-level crypt during the installation process. I can boot the ISO into CLI, but don't know how to run the alternate installer from there.

Red Hat :: Duplicating A RHEL 5.1 32bit Server On RHEL 5.4 64 Bit

Dec 9, 2009

I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.
