Hardware :: Unable To Get NIC To Initialize In CentOS 5
Jun 26, 2011
I have been beating my head against a wall with this for more than an hour.... I purchased a new Ethernet Card to bump up the other side of my network from 10/100 to Gigabit. I previously had a 3c905c 3com card in there before. the chipset I purchased was a realtek 8169 Gigabit..... I removed the old card and put the new one in. Then I ran netconfig but realized that it was holding onto eth0 with 3com's MAC address, so I went and removed the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file. did a service network restart no eth0 trying to start - perfect... I reran netconfig and configured eth0 with all it settings "Netconfig Did recognise the Realtek 8169"
I saw device not initalized when doing an ifup eth0 So I lsmod and saw the 3com module still running - removed the module rmmod 3com - and checked for 8169 - not running... modprobe 8169 and then checked.. bingo its running... service network restart - same error r8169 device eth0 does not seem to be present... delaying initialization. ok - eff it - ill reboot It came up same thing - did not expect it to change... checked /etc/modprobe.conf - i see its aliased... Verified all things are running... I really don't know where to turn... Im sure I could just call it eth2 but then im going to be rewriting all my iptables "firewall rules" and im trying to avoid that.... ** yes I know I could just use sed to replace all eth0 with eth2 ** but then im not learning why and what i am missing...
When I upgraded to CentOS5.2 from 5.1, puplet quit working:
$ sudo /usr/bin/puplet libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. Error: unable to initialize pynotify
I installed a second hard drive to my CentOS box. In the LVM GUI tool i see the hard drive but the "Initialize Entity" button is grayed out. I am not very familiar with using the LVM tool so i am not sure what to do from here.
Using Debian Lenny. I'm trying to label my usb flash drives. I checked on the Internet and found a page, but I can't get it to work: [URL]. I umounted the usb drive. I checked it with Debian:~# blkid /dev/sda1: UUID="B1CC-3C4F" TYPE="vfat"
But when I try to make a label I get this message: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize '::' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive
If I try mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC when the drive is mounted I get this output: Debian:~# mlabel -i /dev/sda1 ::VFAT_DOC Total number of sectors (7855032) not a multiple of sectors per track (62)! Add mtools_skip_check=1 to your .mtoolsrc file to skip this test but no label is attached to the drive.
I added this to /etc/mtools.conf: drive p: file=/dev/sdb1 and ran this command: mlabel p:VFAT_DOC and still can't get it to work Can't open /dev/sda1: No such file or directory Cannot initialize 'P:' mlabel: Cannot initialize drive

I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).
Trying to install the Suhosin module with the php 5.2.9 c5-testing repo...it won't run with the php 5.2.9 testing build (there isn't an updated suhosin package against the 5.2.9 build)
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: suhosin: Unable to initialize module Module compiled with module API=20050922, debug=0, thread-safety=0 PHP compiled with module API=20060613, debug=0, thread-safety=0
What's the best way to handle this from an admin best practices standpoint? I want to do everything possible to keep the suhosin module tracked by yum for future updating etc. Is it best to try to find a suhosin rpm that is built for 5.2.9 and install it with yum localinstall? If not, if I build the module myself, what's the best path to keeping yum/rpm in the loop on this install for future updating via yum?
# iptables -t tproxy -n -L iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `tproxy': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded. Does exist a tproxy module for CentOS's kernel (2.6.18) ?
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I recently installed CentOS on a really old computer and while most things are running well, I am unable to connect to the internet. Using a Damn Small Linux live CD I am able to connect just fine and was able to see that that 'hp100' was being used as the netcard driver. When I tried to set up the network card using that adapter (HP10/100VG ....) it gives me the following error code...
I have HP ML350 G6 Server with RAID10 enabled on bios While trying to install Centos 5.5 64 bit OS I am getting the error mentioned below. "An Error Occured trying to initialize swap on device cciss/codop3. This problem is serious and the install cannot continue."
I am recently getting a very weird error on my Webmin. The result of this problem I suspect is I am no longer able to log into my Maia Mailguard which is my Spam Viewer.

After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:

From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.

We purchased a virtual server from GoDaddy (1 month trial) to set up as a proxy for our networks (24 of them). I am having 2 separate issues. The first is I can't configure/install NAT and support is telling me the only way I can is to purchase a dedicated server. Here's the error:
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128 iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded. Here's the fix: [URL] So, what I am hoping to do is configure this by just opening port 3128 directly, and only allowing access from our networks. As a test I did this and allowed only from our office and it did not work. However I can't connect, so I am wondering what I am doing wrong? Here's my squid configuration:
I have an i5 Thinkpad running Windows 7 64-bit. VT is enabled in the BIOS. I have installed vmware server v 2.0.2 but am unable to install Centos 5.5 x86_64 as a guest OS. The steps that I followed are as follows:1. Created a new VM, specifying RHEL 5 64-bit as the intended guest OS (per vmware documentation - Centos is not available as a selection2. Downloaded all 8 iso files for Centos v5.5 64-bit3. Modified the CD/DVD drive to 'connect at power' and use an iso with the path pointing to the x86_64 iso 1 of 8When I power up the VM, the console window displays 'ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright (C) 1994-2005 H. Peter Anvin' and nothing else. The installation splash screen never appears. As a test, I downloaded the first of 7 iso files for the 32-bit version of Centos 5.5 and pointed the CD/DVD drive to that iso. In that case, the installation starts as expected. I would really like to get the 64-bit version installed and running.

I have fresh CentOS 5.2 installed to 2 sata hdd 1.5 TB size; on every of that hdd is primary raid1 submirror of /boot made with md during install. All other space is lvm place, on lvm living root and swap partitions. And it's work. Now I want to mirror my root and swap, and add other volumes with different raid requirements (raid0 and raid1).
# lvcreate -L10G -m1 -n mir vg0 Insufficient suitable allocatable extents for logical volume : 320 more required Unable to allocate extents for mirror(s).
I have burned an iso image onto a disk in order to install flashplayer on my linspire system. i saved the tar.gz to /home/myname/easyiso. what's the next step? I realize I need to learn a LOT of language and procedural material in order to really begin command line operations; this is how I'm getting started. Also, I can't get CNR to initialize. is the login for CNR linked to the native email application in linspire?
I have searched for like 35 minutes for a fix, I had the 3.6 installed on my f12 box but it worked buggy so I went in packet manager and removed it then yum uninstalled it. And tried to revert to the one that initially came with this build but now it won't start up at all.
