Software :: RHEL5 - Info On Package Groups Breakdown

Apr 6, 2011

After installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5) the system generates a kickstart script, one section of which is about the package groups installed. For example:


Before using this kickstart script for another installation I'd like to know what packages are included in each group, how can I get this information? For example, how can I know the list of packages I will install by having the line: @java in the kickstart file? Any Red Hat documentation about it? I could not find any...

Fedora :: 14 Base Install Is Installing Extra Package Groups?

Dec 1, 2010

When I'm running, I like to just do a base install to start, so that, I can go from there, only added things that I need. I just did a Base install of Fedora 14 x86_64, selecting only the "Base" package, and "vim-enhanced". But, when running a grouplist, it comes back with this...


[root@fcdesktop01 ~]# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Adding en_US to language list
Setting up Group Process


I don't see why these extra groups are included, when all I asked for was Base and vim?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Download Package Info Via Update Manager

Feb 28, 2010

When I open Update Manager and click "check," it starts downloading package information and then the following pops up: Could not download all repository indexes.

The repository may no longer be available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and ensure the repository address in the preferences is correct.

Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Failed to fetch [URL] 404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I opened Software Sources to try and remove the repositories, but couldn't find them. Plus I'm not sure if I need to manually replace these repositories with newer ones- I'm still relatively new at using Ubuntu (made the full switch from windows in October 2009). Plus, whenever I do install updates with the update manager, the "last updated" time doesn't reset itself. It finishes installing the selected packages, and the message at the top of the Update Manager window reads "Your system is up-to-date. The package information was last updated 28 days ago.

CentOS 5 :: Complete Software Listing For A RHEL5 Box (NOT An RPM / Package Dump)

Aug 31, 2010

I have a need for a complete software list off of an existing RHEL 5 system. I need this list to compare software installed to software on a government approved software list to ensure the compliance of this system. I was given an RPM Dump, listing all the 2000+ packages on the system... This does not translate to the Government Approved software list that I have to compare to. I do not have access to this system myself, so what ever method is prescribed for extracting the list I will have to pass along. What I need is either:

1) A way to convert an RPM Package dump to actual software names and versions, etc.


2) A method to extract a complete list of software (titles/versions/etc) from an instance of RHEL5.

Example: Instead of knowing that "pango-devel-1.14.9-6.el5" exists on the system I need to know that "Pango v3.0.x" is installed on the system. Many packages do not relate on a one to one basis with a specific piece of software via inter-dependencies etc. (not to mention the version of the software, not the version of the package/library). The Pango example is not the best example as you can see what software is likely the source of this package; however just because this package is installed, I cannot grantee 100% that the Pango software suite is installed, just that this package was installed...

Ubuntu Servers :: Get A List Of Both The Local Groups And The Groups In The Active Directory?

Feb 4, 2011

I already know of a work around to fix this problem, but I guess my question is why is this not working as expected? I am using a Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory for authentication.

I have run auth-client-config for the ldap profile and pam-auth-update. When running getent passwd, I get a list of both the local users and the users in the active directory (with populated information in the Unix schema extension). When running getent group I get a list of both the local groups and the groups in the active directory (with populated information in the Unix schema extension).

Interestingly enough, though, when I run su DOMAINUSER, after the prompt for the password I get an authentication error. In /var/log/auth.log I can see an entry with pam_ldap: missing "host" in file "/etc/ldap.conf". The SRV records in the DNS servers resolve correctly. I've checked this with nslookup and I have seen the records within my zone file. Obviously if the ldap.conf file is working with getent and the ldap server is resolving from the SRV records, it is working fine.

The interesting part is that the Windows Server 2008 R2 AD machine shows in the event viewer that there was a successful authentication, yet the Ubuntu box says no. When I add the host within the ldap.conf file, everything works...getent and the actual authentication, either initial login or su.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mapping UNIX Groups To Windows Groups?

Oct 12, 2010

I am currently trying to set up a Samba domain server. In the Samba-HOWTO-Collection I found an
example file.(Point In the explanations of the example below, the author says I need to map UNIX Groups to NT Groups. He writes a shell-script of how one could do it, but when I copy it and then execute it, I get the error:

Bad option: rid=512
Bad option: rid=513
Bad option: rid=514

The other groups do get mapped, just the Domain Admins, Domain Users and Domain Guests dont. This is the shell from the HOWTO:

#### Shell-Skript f ̈r sp ̈tere Verwendung aufbewahren
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=ntadmins rid=512
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Users" unixgroup=users rid=513
net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Guests" unixgroup=nobody rid=514

General :: LFS /tools/bin/groups Not Displaying Supplementary Groups?

Jun 8, 2010

So i am at the stage of about to install the basic system and am using a derivation of the package management provided by Matthias S. Benkmann. To this end I am using his useradd and groupadd scripts to update the files:


My issue is that when I run the commands(created as part of temporary system when installing coreutils):


/tools/bin/su linux
#then as user

(here linux is the name of the user) This only returns the user being in the group named after user but not the additional group of 'install' Also, prior to logging in as user, if I use this command as root:


/tools/bin/groups linux

linux install This then returns that the user is in the correct groups. Lines from relevant files look like:

Software :: Graphical Breakdown Of Disk Usage

Jan 16, 2010

The Disk Usage Analuser application in GNOME (baobab) only displays directories, not files. I think this is a huge deficiency that greatly reduces it's usefulness. Can anyone recommend an application (preferably GNOME/GTK) that's capable of providing a graphical break down of disk usage for the contents of a user's home directory with both directories and files sorted by the amount of space they take up? Like ncdu but with a GUI.

General :: Avoiding Software Manager Breakdown During Java Install

Few days back when I tried to install java application using software manager, I got the message that my software manager has broken down. Since then I was not able to install any of the applications either through terminal or the software manager. Luckily, I got another fresh copy of Linux Mint 10(Julia) installed on my laptop. Looking for some efficient method of installing the required applications(java and its associated applications) so that I do not face such problems again in the future.

Server :: FTP Permissions For Several Groups?

Aug 1, 2010

I have a FTP server (vsftpd), and would like to setup different file permissions for different groups:

-"ftpusers" group should only be able to browse and download.

-"ftpadmins" group should be able to browse, download, AND WRITE (RNFR, RNTO, MKDIR....).

Let's say my main directory is /var/ftp/docs/. It should be accessible by "ftpusers" group, but only writeable by "ftpadmins" group. Other groups or users may not access it. Which permissions and ownership should I give? My problem is that the dir can't be owned by two groups...

Fedora :: Strategy To Set Up Groups And Permissions

Nov 12, 2009

I'm setting up a Fedora 11 server for the company of one of my friends. So far so good. But now he has asked me to setup access restrictions to folders through samba. Now I'm quite familiar with user access policies, even though I'm quite new to the GNU/Linux world. What I want to know is : what is the best way to give and remove, on the go, rwx access for a specific user to a certain folder in a linux system? Can I create groups for each folders, whose members will have the given permissions? Or do I have to create users for each folder and add to their group the user witch i want to give privilege to?

I can create groups, but when I send an e-mail to one of these groups it is sent to group_name@localhost, which, obviously, is not what I want. Some versions back this worked perfectly, but now it seems that there is no way.

Ubuntu :: Kmail Won't Send To Groups?

May 12, 2010

Running 9.04 with Kmail 1.12.2 with KDE 4.3. Akonadi is activated. Everything works except I cannot email to a distribution list. Am using POP3 with SMPTE. Comes back with

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Message sending failed since the following recipients were rejected by the server: test@steve-laptop (The server responded: "test@steve-laptop failed to route the address")

So I unchecked the default-domain inside my sending option for SMPTE and same thing.

Is there a manual switch or setting in kmailrc? I looked and didn't see anything. Doing the same thing on 3 different computers. Tried searching the net but couldn't find anything.

Ubuntu :: Remapping Keys With Key Groups?

Jul 20, 2011

I have a laptop which has no function keys (F1-F12), but does have a row of arbitrary keys at the top (volume control, multimedia, etc.). I've been able to remap these keys using xmodmap (e.g. 'keycode 000 = F1 NoSymbol F1'). However, this means that I lose the original function.Is there a way (using xmodmap or otherwise) to set these keys to produce a different keysym (e.g. XF86AudioRaiseVolume) only when the Super* key is pressed?* I would have preferred Fn, but it doesn't show up in xev so I'm guessing that's not possible.
