CentOS 5 :: Pirut/yum: RHEL 5.1 - Maintain An Unregistered RHEL Box?

Feb 16, 2010

A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.

This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.

Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.

General :: How Does The Documentation Of CentOS/RHEL Compare To Some Of The Other Distros

Oct 29, 2010

documentation on the "stable" war-horse OSs. I am impressed for example on the community support of Ubuntu, Slackware, and impressed by the formal documentation of Arch and Gentoo.

1. However, how does the documentation of CentOS/RHEL compare to some of the other distros? and

2. How about compared to similar OSs, like Debian

What is the best place to get an updated nVidia video driver for CentOS 5.5? Is there a CentOS package available that will update it? Or is it best to download it directly from nVidia?

Also, I do not have an internet connection on the machine, so it will have to be a manual download and installation.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Disks Switched Place In 2 Different RAID5 Arrays?

Feb 21, 2011

We have CentOS on an HP proliant g5 server and attached to it is an DAS with 3 branches of disks so 5 - 5 - 5 drives.Now what we had so far there is that every branch was on raid 5 and totaling 3 mounted drives each with 4TB (disks are 1Tb each).But a couple days ago something happened while i was replacing older drives with some bad sectors with new one. What I did is to remove old drive, put in new one, initialize and attach to array and rebuild starts.Now somehow 2 drievs ( as i was rebuilding 2 arrays at once) switched disk on 1_1_5 and disk on 1_3_5 switched place. There coul dbe possibility that I made mistake and assigned them to different arrays when initializing but that is really hardly as i replaced one then later another so...

Anyway to the to the point.Is there painless option to remove 1 disk from array and then assign it to other array and then let raid rebuild everything normally?I;ve made backup of everything there so there is no fear of loosing anything...By the way at the same time when that switch happens a partition from 1 raid array completely dis speared and there is only unallocated space on that one right now.

CentOS 5 :: Windows AD ACLS Used On Centos/RHEL Directories?

Aug 31, 2010

We are slowly migrating from a predominantly Windows house to a 50/50 Win/RHEL operation and even further in the future.Currently, we have a LOT of Windows folders that are created by custom applications which, upon creation of a new folder set, applies the corresponding ACL so that only the associated groups are able to access the folders. Now for the problem, we are migrating the applications to a RHEL55 environment and it is creating the folders on that system now but the groups are still residing in the Windows AD. Is there an "easy" (I know, a very relative term) to have the Windows groups given permission to the Linux shares without very much manual intervention?

General :: Where To Place Xrandr Configuration

Aug 8, 2011

I have migrtaed from Arch, my first experience with linux for the past 2 months, to Debian and i'm currently setting up my system. I have a X61s Thinkpad with a cracked screen which i use with the ultrabase with an external monitor and keyboard. The monitor requires me to use fbset on console and xrandr for a graphical enviroment Whilst i was using Arch i used 'startx' to access openbox and placed my xrandr configuration in ~/.xinitrc but with debian i have wanted to use a login manager, Slim.

Because i am using KMS for my intel based system i don't have an xorg.conf and because i am using slim i am not using ~/.xinitrc I read somwhere that creating an ~/.xprofile file would solve this but i have not had any luck. So i am wondering where would be the best place to put the xrandr configuration?

General :: Primary Point Of Converting Dll To Lib In First Place

Apr 15, 2010

I've been looking for a way to run windows-only vst plugins nativley on linux as well as to find a linux driver for my 1394 audio interface with little luck; I would like to do so without relying on wine, and have come across an idea to work out after stumbling on a utility that converts dll to lib (called dll2lib). The idea would be to convert the dll's for a proprietary fw audio dev and dependent MS libraries and manually change what's needed to make it compatible with linux env. is this possible; will I be able to achieve source code from this? if not, what is the primary point of converting a dll to lib in the first place.

General :: How To Place The Java Location In My $PATH

Sep 22, 2010

I have a program that has a GUI which I have placed in /usr/local/bin however when I invoke the program I receive the following error:

Unable to find a supported JDK or JRE version. Version 1.3.1 or higher is required. Check your installation and use +javahome to specify the JDK or JRE location

I have since installed Java into the usr/local/ directory however I am now just totally Lost! Additionally, I believe that i have tried to install Java several times with no luck.


1) Where should java be installed to have system wide access to all programs?

2) How can I place the Java location in my $PATH? here I am going to need very easy and detailed instructions?

3) Is there a way to ensure that the location where I intall java gets updates?
