General :: Get Putty To Support 256 Colors In Emacs On CentOS?

Jan 21, 2011

As far as I can tell from browsing around, I should be getting 256 colors in my Emacs, but I'm not. I'm running CentOS 5.4 on an ec2 instance. I'm running Putty 0.60 on Windows 7. Putty is set to send xterm-256color for its terminal string. Putty is set to allow 256 colors. On CentOS, my $TERM is set to xterm-256color.

tput colors shows 256. I recompiled Emacs to 23.2, making sure to install libtermcap-devel beforehand, because someone claimed they needed that. But still, when I M-x list-colors-display in Emacs, it only shows 8 colors.

CentOS 5 :: Can't Log In By Ssh Client Or Putty

Nov 30, 2010

I just installed the CentOs 5.5 on my laptop (windows7 + vmware workstation 7), I used host only, the centos could connect only with my laptop. After installation , I 'd like to admin CentOs by putty or ssh client, so I configured the sshd_config. I configured the file like this:

UsePAM no
UseDNS no
PasswordAuthentication yes

but I could not log in successfully , the connection was refused all the time. I can ping the Centos from my windows7; I can telnet ip 22 , the Openssh could appear; the /var/log/security looks no problem ; but I just couldn't log in the system. How can I do?

Ubuntu :: Setup A Putty Session To Putty From One Machine To Another?

May 15, 2010

I am trying to setup a putty session to putty from one Ubuntu machine to another. I know how to setup to connect to the machine from Windows and I am using the same settings for the one I am trying on the Ubuntu machine but it fails to connect. It fails immediately so I believe that putty is not able to find ssh. Is there some configuring that I need to do.

CentOS 5 :: Cannot Open Putty With USB To Serial Adapter

Aug 4, 2010

Im a very basic Linux/ Centos user. I have Putty installed and a USB to serial adapter. All settings seem to be right as far as speed, etc, but I'm not sure how to list the device to open for the program. The default location it gives is "/dev/ttyS0" Trying to find where the USB is located using the "/sbin/lsusb" command gives me-

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0557:2008 ATEN International Co., Ltd UC-232A Serial Port [pl2303]
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

So I think this means that it is on bus 4 correct? So how do I list this for putty to open the device.

CentOS 5 :: Emacs 21 Fonts Missing After 5.3 Upgrade?

Apr 14, 2009

After upgrading to CentOS 5.3, emacs is unable to locate its default font. (I've been able to supply emacs with a command-line or config-file link to a different installed font, but that's a workaround, not a solution.) I'm not sure if this is a packaging error, an error in our repository configuration, or something else. Below I've inserted some info that seems relevant. I'd be happy to post other information as requested. I've also attached a probably unnecessary screenshot of emacs displaying little blocks instead of characters at the very bottom of this post. Here's the command-line error thrown by emacs on startup:


whether one of emacs's needed fonts has been moved from one package to another in the latest upgrade. Or (most likely) it's something else I haven't thought of.

CentOS 5 :: Emacs Displaying All Characters As Boxes - Fonts Broken?

Dec 30, 2010

In CentOS 5.4 (Final), emacs is displaying characters as little boxes. see attached screen shot. I searched the Web and found others have this same problem with emacs in CentOS 5.4 but have not found any solution. I installed emacs in a base CentOS Amazon EC2 instance as follows:

yum -y groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
yum -y install emacs
yum -y groupinstall emacs

This issue does not arise for me in Amazon EC2 instances running Red Hat, Fedora, or Ubuntu when I install emacs as I did here. I am not X font savvy

CentOS 5 :: Running A CentOS 5.5 System Which Does NOT Support VT Technology

Jun 3, 2010

I am running a CentOS 5.5 system which does NOT support VT Technology, so I am unable to use Xen HV. I am very happy with OpenVZ other than the fact that it doesn't support Windows, only Linux.I'd like to have VMWare Server 2.x installed, but it appears that OpenVZ changes the Kernel to, in my case, 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6. The default kernel on my system is 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.i386.If I change grub to load 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.i386, VMWare will work but OpenVZ will not. If I change grub to load 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6, OpenVZ will work, but VMWare will not.If I try to run /usr/bin/ while in the 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.028stab069.6 kernel, I get an error of:

None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)?Using compiler "/usr/bin/gcc". Use environment variable CC to override.

What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel?[/usr/ src/ linux/ include]I'm so lost as what to do there anyway I can compile both of the kernels together somehow?

CentOS 5 :: Will Redhat Support CentOS Under Any Circumstances?

Will Redhat support CentOS under any circumstances? I have heard at my employer that if you setup you system with CentOS and then on down the line you find you need RHEL support that you can purchase a license from Redhat and they will support your CentOS installation.Is that an official policy at Redhat? Unofficial? Or completely untrue?

General :: Set PuTTY's Appearance In Windows

Feb 26, 2010

Is it possible to configure PuTTY to have me some nice colour scheme like vim's desert?

I'm an PuTTY user under Windows and my login shell is tcsh. The current PuTTY theme setting is a very boring "black background and white character" user interface.

If it is possible, could you illustrate a little bit about how it works?

I've goolged this issue, but it seem both client side and server side settings are involved in changing PuTTY's appearance, which makes me quite confused.

General :: Vps With Putty Closing, Or Freezing?

Apr 30, 2011

I recently purchased a dedicated server and have been having trouble with putty. I have been using the server to try and host the game called minecraft. Hosting the server is not a problem however. What is the problem is being able to exit putty without stopping the server. I looked this up, and it sayed to create a screen. I did that after installing screen. I then created a screen, ran the server, then tried to disconnect using the ctr-a-d.However only two things happen when i push the buttons. The majority of the time the window just closes, along with my server stopping. The other thing that happens is putty just stops. I cant type in anything, but I am still notified when I try to close putty.
