can someone please confirm or correct my understanding of automatic upgrades in F14:as far as i currently understand the automatic update mechanism in F14 it works the following way:
1.) PackageKit (packagekitd) periodically checks for updates using YUM as it's backend and displays a nice icon in the tray to inform the user when upgrades are available.
2.) PackageKit (packagekitd) only runs when a user needs it and terminates afterward. When a interactive Desktop session is running, packagekitd is always running because it's spawned by the session manager.
3.) When using a console only system (without X) or when nobody is logging in on the local graphical console for a longer time i need yum-checkupdates for configuring automatic upgrades (same as done per default in CentOS).
I have a general question and decided to post it here. Hopefully, I have picked a correct category. The thing I have been trying to figure out is the syn-cache mechanism. I know that it used to be utilized as a method to mitigate the impact of (D)DoS attacks. I would like to know what happened with it? Is it still added to the Linux systems? Perhaps I am missing something, and cannot find the correct man page about it. Is it the thing, that it is only for NetBSD project?
I currently have an academic license of red hat enterprise linux Desktop/Workstation and red hat enterprise linux server. For those who don't know this will get me updates but no official support (the desktop/workstation costs 30 dollars and the server costs 80 dollars). Anywho i am trying to get wine to work but after strugglign with many dependency issues i tried to build it manually but it keeps telling me to install the 32 bit development libraries. how to do this (i am currently using fedora 14 having identical issues) and i cant get either crossover games to work with 3d games nor can i get wine to play any 3D related games (does regular windows programs just fine)
I was using RHAT 6.0 Open Client for a couple months and didn't have any issues. Recently my company released version 6.1 of Open Client and recommended to upgrade it. Upgrade went smoothly and I didn't notice any problems until at some point it failed to run 'Software Update' application.
I am working on tracing the signal handling mechanism in linux kernel internallly. For that, i build the kernel. Now, i want to trace the signal handling mechanism in the old kernel. I got to about SYSLOG and PRINTK for this. But, how to use these tools exactly in tracing the handling of signals internally ?. Is, there any tool similar to backtrace to do that?. How the call flow is done internally ?
using mint 10, now after updates my system is barely working. The programs were no longer showing in the task bar, and the system was running much slower.
This repeated over and over again. My temperature was never to high 40-55, and I found a suggestion to update my kernel to 2.6.37-020637. After doing so there is no longer the thermal limit exceeded error but the computer is still running poorly. The system is slow and again no programs are showing up in the task bar when open.
I have 4 Linux machines with cluster.My target is to find all kind of IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) in every file in the linux system remark: need to scan each file in the linux system and verify if the file include IP address if yes need to print the IP as the following
I need to update a server from RHEL 5.0 to 5.1 When I use RHN/Yum and do a yum update the RHEL 5.0 server gets updated to 5.6 Is there a way to configure RHN/yum to update the server only to RHEL 5.1 ? In RHN I only see a general "Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 for 32bit x86)" software channel and not specific for the update versions like 5.1
I am trying to download RHEL 5.4 AS version for testing..But under [URL] There is no specific link for AS version or ES version..How can I detect which iso is for AS and which one for ES..? There are separate links for AS and ES version for RHEL 4.x version but why is it not available for RHEL 5.x versions?
Recently, I am trying to use a complied software on Linux OS. I need to use X-Windows to do some initialize. When I run this software, I am getting the error: '/lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found' I also checked the version of GLIBC on my computer, the highest one is GLIBC_2.3.4. So I have to update my glibc to 2.4 or higher. Some tips said it can be done using yum. I am a new user for linux. Could anyone guide me to do that? Here is the information of my computer: Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 4 (Nahant Update ; Linux 2.6.9-89.0.3.ELsmp #1 SMP Sat Jun 13 07:02:28 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I recently installed Red hat enterprise 5 on a vmware esx server 4 and i didnt realize that for updates and patches you have to have a subscription to the red hat network. is there a free server linux OS that does not require this and is there a way to update on RHEL 5 without a subscription.
Brand new build of RHEL 6.1. Registered with RHN and then ran yum update. Everything completed fine, but now when I try to use yum in any fashion I get: Options Error: need more than 1 value to unpack Anyone else ran into this error? I have a support ticket open with RH but haven't heard back as of yet.
That was released in October 2008, superseded in March 2009, and the current release is 1.4.3. It also doesn't work together with Python, but that's a more esoteric issue. Both of them are too clever by half, and the combination breaks the library loading mechanism. That's an old issue, with an old fix - though I haven't yet checked my rebuild, so there may be more than one problem.
Every time I use Update Manager it tries to update a program that I don't want to be updated because the older version has a option that the new one don't have. How would I remove the application from the list to update?
from the links I have read it seems like you have to manually download the lastest sun java from sun.com and then excute some commands to get firefox to use sun java rather than openjdk.It seems stupid having to update sun java manually. so is there a repo for it so i can update sun java with yum like all other programs?
i need to find a way to securely authenticate a decryption mechanism of some sort where the authentication is provided remotely without any user-interaction. Right now i have a number of boxes that all inform a central server when they are online. When they do this an OpenVPN connection is set up between them and the server.
However, i have been given the task to ensure that the scripts involved in this process are encrypted by default. This requires some form of self-decryption, which to my mind kind of goes against the whole idea of encryption/authentication in the first place. I need some way to leave decrypted the bare essentials required to boot a box and securely connect to the central server automatically. Then the server would automatically send a key/passphrase and the rest of the files on the box would then be decrypted on the fly.
Every time 10.04 updates I find that two of my programs - boinc and CUPS - get de-configured and must be either reconfigured, or re-installed to make them work. While the fix itself is easy, it is an inconvenience to have to do this after every weekly update. Why this is happening, what I can do to prevent it from occurring in the future (aside from not updating).
I'm sorry if this is recurring subject, but I have searched the forum for such a subject and can't find one.I'm using Xubuntu 8.10, I'd like to update my programs to the latest releases, but the available updates in 8.10 versions are not the newest ones. I can't upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu due to some known issues with older Intel drivers.
Is it possible to have the latest updates of packages while I still using 8.10 version?
I have 11.1 on a computer. I updated it yesterday. Now K3B, VLC, and XDVDShrink are all broken. Possibly other programs broken as well. VLC refuses to uninstall via Yast. These are high-priority programs for this computer. Multiple people use this computer for multimedia and there is not much to entertain ourselves with in our very cold climate. In other words, it is mandatory that K3B, VLC and XDVDShrink return to operational status.
Should I just upgrade to 11.3, try to fix the broken 11.1? I prefer using KDE3, not KDE4, but I can sacrifice.
