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.
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?
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.
I use centro 5 to run a game server with the command ./srcds_run quit -game cstrike -nocrashdialog +map de_dust2 +maxplayers 36 +ip 188.8.131.52 +port 27015 -tickrate 67
which then starts a 36 slot CSS game server but as soon as i close putty it ends now i tried nohub ./srcds_run quit -game cstrike -nocrashdialog +map de_dust2 +maxplayers 36 +ip 184.108.40.206 +port 27015 -tickrate 67 and ./srcds_run quit -game cstrike -nocrashdialog +map de_dust2 +maxplayers 36 +ip 220.127.116.11 +port 27015 -tickrate 67 > srcds.log 2>&1 &
i'm woundering if it something to do with centro 5 why nohub isn't working becouse it works for others either
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.
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.
My X-windows *server* is a Cygwin box. I installed the entire X11 packages. on the centos machine, I installed xterm and emacs.xterm comes up fine and the characters in the window are fine.with emacs, the characters in the windows are empty boxes.Do I need to install some things on the centos end to get the characters to render?
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:
I try to set up a 5 nodes cluster and a shared Coraid Storage with conga but it fails with "Shared Storage Support" checked.The message is:'A problem occurred when installing packages: Packages of set "Clustered Storage" are not present in available repository' and it is shown under every node on the next sceen after I submit.The pc where conga runs is on the same subnet (192.168.xxx.xxx) and it has the same /etc/hosts of the other nodes.In that pc runs a proxy too and the nodes go out through it (that pc has 2 NICs)Every node (2.6.18-128.1.14.el5-xen-x86_64) is patched whith the last yum update (this morning) the same is for the pc (2.6.18-128.1.14.el5).Every node has 4 NICs , 2 NICc towards the storage the others in bonding towards the WAN.Every node is exactly alike, they have been installed with the ks.cfg generated from the first node and they all have the support for Clustering, Virtualization, and Clustered Storage.
I'm setting up a raid 5 on several hard disks with a layer of lvm on top for good measure.I know the recent kernels support growing software raid, but since centos runs 2.6.18, I wanted to make sure it'll work. Does the centos kernel support growing raid devices?
I have been using SLES 10 SP1 so far with about 6TB Raid system without problems.I have upgraded the OS to CentOS 5.3 i386 and I have noticed the kernel can not recognize raid system larger than 2TB.Is there any parameters that I have to set ? or the i386 distribution simply does not support larger raid, so I have to use x86_64 version, instead?
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/vmware-config.pl 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 now..is there anyway I can compile both of the kernels together somehow?
I have a HP laptop which can support 1600x900. But after I install ubuntu 9.10 on it, it can only support up to 1280x700. My laptop has a Nvidia graphics card. And i am using GNOME as my desktop environment.
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?
I have a problem in connecting a new Linux box using putty.I have recently set up a new virtual machine using oracle virtual box , and in the virtual box i installed Cent OS 4.8 . I gave NAT connection.When i try to connect the Linux box using putty , i get Network connection Timed out message . When i try to ping from the host OS i get request timed out.
I am using windows 7 OS. I want to make client server setup & trying to connect putty with Vmware from windows 7. I had installed redhat linux 5in Vmware & set the ipaddress as well but I am not able to connect vmware through this ip address.Do I need to set some configuration in ssh as well?
I can't figure out why I keep getting kicked out of the ssh session almost immediately after login to an ubuntu 9.10 server (32bit).See the screenshot. I just installed this server and didn't make any ssh config options. I thought it would work right away.When I ping that server I get sporadic responses where some packets are lost. It's an old Dell poweredge 1400.where should I start troubleshooting? Authentication? Hardware?
I want to use Putty to login to my linux system , I use Reflection before , it works fine to download file , but it can not download file by using the same method , can advise what protocol that Putty that support ?
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.
