Just install Oracle on Fedora 14, and start facing challneges with PATH, etc. So want to edit my ini file to configure all PATH variable correctly. I see bunch of directories in /etc/rc0-6, which one hold ini file I can put some var assignments.
I notice that on DistroWatch, the descriptions include "debian based", "arch based", etc. For the newbie, is there any practical difference between the different bases, or is it a Coke vs Pepsi type question?
Is a distro based on Debian say, easier for a newbie to learn or work with than say one that is FreeBSD based?
from what I understand kernel-devel does not bring in ALL the header files for install modules. so what i would like to know is how to install true headers instead of using kernel-devel. I found one tutorial, but it was way out of date.
I have a a software "Acronis True Image Home".Is it possible to backup CentOS Linux?on Windows do I need to create a bootdisk from Acronis and then boot it up on linux server?I wanted to copy all the files from Server to External USB Hard Drive or via FTP
I am trying to figure out the actual size of files and directories on a CentOS Linux 5 server and when I do a ls -l I see for example at the Directory of /Data 4096 but once in side the directory and I do a ls -l I see larger file sizes. How do I get the actual file size of a Directory to show up?
I want to follow the instructions to configure a PXE server based on Fedora, the instructions written in 2005, suggests Fedora Core 4. I need to have; tftp-server, dhcp, httpd, syslinux. Which I understand can be install subsequently but are included in FC4.
I cannot find a link to FC4, I guess it's out of date now and no longer available, which server should I now download
I have just installed Fedora12, i worked all time with Red Hat Enterprise, so i wanted to set the default Red Hat theme(clearlooks) on Fedora. However i can't find the clearlooks icons in the themes, how can i set them?
I have two machines on the same network. I want to share files from my Red Hat server to my Fedora 11 box. I want to know what is the easiest, most secure way of doing so. My machines are on a public wire (not an issue really as I don't have sensitive stuff on there), however I'd like to learn how to secure the server, but yet still get access from my Fedora box. Anyone provide me with a guide or help on which protocol (SSH, Samba? NFS) to use?
I wanted to install the latest version of the Revolution Enterprise R 4.0 software on Linux, however the company only supports the produce on Windows and Red Hat(CentOS). Since I don't want to stay on Windows and CentOS is too locked down, I was wondering if I could install the Red Hat version of the RPM on Fedora? I am not sure if there are any particular issues associated with installing Red Hat RPMs on Fedora with respect to compatibility.
The company said that they do not support Revolution Enterprise on Fedora yet and have not tested it. Since the software is proprietary--I can get it under a free academic license--I cannot compile it from source. I tried to install the software in a Fedora VM, but it seemed to quit in the middle. But that might have been just my lack of Fedora experience more than a software issue.
I just installed Red Hat 6 but when I try to login it prompts me to enter a "Smartcard Authentication" instead of a user name.Does anyone know how to get pass this? and just login with the user name I created or the root? I tried logging using root and a regular user but it always keeps asking me to enter a smart card.Here's a screenshot of the login screen:Code: i901.photobucket.com/albums/ac211/0xGFX007/smart.png
Linux OS Version/Release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga) Linux <hostname> 2.6.18-194.8.1.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jun 23 10:52:51 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux I have a server that hosts 30+ Oracle databases. Each database has its own set of scripts that shuts down the database and start the database. Things has been working "smoothly" in the last couple of months until this week.
My log in most cases shows errors like the ones below:cannot fork [Resource temporarily unavailable] Connection reset by peer I am 100% sure that the scripts are not at fault since it has been working with no errors for months. I want to monitor the server for what resource or configurations I have to tweak to get around this problem if possible, am I exceeding my ulimit settings running out of process,out of memory/swap space etc?
I wish I could stay up 24x7 to monitor to monitor the server but I can't. Can anyone please advise if there is any monitoring script available somewhere that I can put in cron to temporarily monitor the server for resource issues, for example memory used/left, swap space used/left, ulimit-num-process used/left, nofiles used/left etc.
The solution should be capable to use intranet only (no communication should traverse the inernet). It would be of an advantage if it would support conferencing. And if it's possible it'd be fine if it'd be free.
One solution which comes to my mind is jabber, but I do not have any experience with it... what's your oppinion on that? What other solutions are there?
