Mar 30, 2011

Is it possible to list/find/compare the program versions on a Centos system, against Redhat/Centos Errata/Security/Bug lists? Sort of looking for a way to make sure that all the packages on a system are ok, and not a security risk-- Without having to update every package. A pseudo code, in my mind is:

CentOS 5 :: CentOS 5 Home Server Power Consumtion? (features, Kernel Versions Etc.)?

Feb 28, 2010

I built a home server (NAS/WWW/SSH/media server etc) and chose CentOS 5 as the OS (stability, easy of configuration).I was just about to start tuning the power consumption when I realised that the kernel CentOS uses is so "old" that it does not support the latest reduced power consumption enhancements that Linux has achieved in big strides in the recent past (we are probably still talking 6-12+ months ago e.g. tickless kernel)..

So my questions; 1) I know CentOS was maybe not meant for home servers (certainly its not its primary purpose), but if it is, any ideas of what kind of power consumption it takes (I know its relative) and if there are particular power consumptions that are worthwhile?

2) Do you recommend me compiling my own 2.6.21+ kernel from or am I just likely to have compatibility issues (I really did not want to do that) or when is CentOS 5.4 supposed to have a newer 2.6.21+ version kernel?

Was it wrong of me in principle to choose CentOS for a home server when I am power conscious? (I don't have a low-power VIA processor either but a P4 so I am really just hoping to make do with software changes).

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

Oct 16, 2009

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?

Ubuntu :: Create Two Lists Of File Names Irrespective Of Directories And Compare?

Aug 13, 2010

I have an internal hard drive and an external hard drive, both with about 350 GB of data. The data came from the same source, but over the last couple of years, different people have moved files around to different directories, and some files have been deleted. Now I want to merge all the files onto the internal hard drive. I estimate that 80% of the files on the external hard drive are the same, so I don't want to copy 290+ GB of data over when I already have it.

Therefore, I need a way to find just the files on the external hard drive that don't already exist on the internal one. In other words, I need to create two lists of file names irrespective of directories and compare them, selecting only the file names that exist in one list OR the other. I've Googled for solutions but can't find anything suitable. There are ways to create text files of the file names and compare them with diff, but they have to be in the same order, and since these files are in vastly different directories, that won't work.

CentOS 5 :: Can Redhat Network Be Used For Centos?

Apr 16, 2010

I'm in a research institution with about 20 linux desktops currently running different versions of fedora. The sysadmins used to update and configure each of these machines individually. We want to move to centos to make operating systems more uniform and simplify administration.

The basic needs are: One central, easy-to-use package management for all machines central management of configuration files for all machines. In addition it would be nice to have a local repository with a subset of user-installable rpms. It looks like rhel can do this with the redhat network. Is it possible on centos, too? If yes, is it necessary to pay a subscription to rhn to use their web hosting of services?

CentOS 5 :: Can't Find HDD - Virgin System?

Nov 9, 2009

I am trying to install the latest release (5.4 64 bit) from DVD. I downloaded the torrent from here.My system is completely virgin - no OS has ever been installed on it. So I suppose somewhat fittingly, there is some resistance to my advances :).Details:Intel dual core 64 bit CPUASUS PK5KPL-AM main boardSATA HDDI am trying to boot from the DVD I burned from the downloaded ISO.

It boots up ok at first but when it comes to creating the partition it can't seem to find my HDD. I get the following error:An error has occurred - no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem.Can anyone please suggest a way to troubleshoot this? I realize the problem could be the hardware, but I would like to eliminate all other possibilities before taking the system back to the distributor for repair.

General :: Can Not Find System-logos For Centos 5 / Get That?

Mar 11, 2010

I have a Centos 5 machine, and I've been attempting to install GNOME and the like. However, quite a large number of packages do NOT install because of missing dependencies, all of which seem to trace back to 'system-logos'. Unfortunately, I can find no trace of this package in the 'yum list available' output. Google came up with nothing. If you can help, it would be MUCH appreciated! BTW, I've also tried 'fedora-logos' and 'linux-logos' without success.

2. How about compared to similar OSs, like Debian

CentOS 5 Server :: Configure ISO's For PXE Booting - Pick An Iso From The List It Says "Could Not Find Ramdisk Image"?

May 3, 2011

I have a fresh install of COS5.6 installed a test laptop. I have following instructions to set up the PXE server based on the following: http:[url]......The base PXE installation seems to work fine (The menu labeled CentOS 5.6 works fine ). The whole purpose of this was to be able to boot iso's like Hirens and Imaging software ISO's.The issue is that whenever i try to pick an iso from the list it just says "Could not find ramdisk image:" [path to iso][path to iso] being either of the two iso i had set up to test this.

I would like to think that i made a typo but i can find one. The files i used are from the source of syslinux v4.0.4.The following information should be pertinent
Contents of /tftpboot/pxelinux.0/default[code].....

I have a limited experice with linux in an enterprise environment and looking for any direction as to what to do about this.

CentOS 5 :: Parted - How To Find File System Type

Feb 18, 2010

When I run 'parted' and then type 'print' to see the partitions that are available, I see two entries: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. /dev/sda1 is of ext3 type whereas for /dev/sda2 nothing is specified for file system type. The LVM flags are set for /dev/sda2.

When I tried to resize /dev/sda2, it gives me the error "File system type not recognized". let me know how to find out the file system type of the partition.

CentOS 5 :: Centos 5.2 Installed On /dev/hda3, Won't Boot, Cant Find Grub Stage 2?

Nov 10, 2009

I just upgraded by box from Fedora Core 9 to Centos 5.2. Finally!I have a 500GB SATA drive, it's partitioned into three equal size slices, hda1 through 3. The old Fedora was on hda1, I installed the new Centos on hda3. I instructed the installer to write the MBR to /dev/hda, not /dev/hda3. Fdisk says I have sector 0 unused.First, the system wouldn't boot - it just looped through the BIOS, rebooting over and over again. The BIOS sees the disk, but it never loaded Grub. I tried re-running grub-install /dev/hda, and not I get a Grub Error 17 after stage 1.5 loads.

I can boot from rescue OK, the grub.conf man menu.lst look fine, it's pointing to "root (hd0,2)". It's either the BIOS that can't find the MBR, or the MBR can't find Grub.When I looked at the disk with fdisk after the install, hda1 was still marked bootable, hda3 was not, so I swapped bootable flags but that has not made a difference. I also appended the new grub to the old grub thinking I could get the MBR (if it is there) to load the old grub and thence find the new Centos, but that didn't work either.Mobo is an old Shuttle AK35.Any ideas? Did I mess up by not telling the system to put the MBR on /dev/hda3? Is there a way to fix this without reinstalling?

I am running my web and game server on ubuntu 8.04 lts and am considering in reinstalling a new OS. I would like to try another different OS(most probably CentOS or Debian and I saw alot of good comments about them). I'm not sure what version I am going to install. I searched on websites of companies that rents dedicated servers and noticed that they mainly use Debian 4 or 5 and CentOS 5 or 4.7. I would like you to tell me which versions do you prefer for CentOS and Debian servers.

CentOS 5 :: Setting Up Repositories With RepoSync And Multiple Versions

Jul 17, 2009

I'm missing a fundamental that I just cant seem to wrap my head around with setting up repositories with RepoSync. I set up a local repository when my system was running version 5.2. Everything ran like a top up until the release of 5.3 Upon release I ran the standard yum on my 5.2 server which upgraded it to 5.3 and thats where my mental block is catching me up.

When I run a reposync It seems that all I'm able to download is the 5.2 packages. I'm trying to figure out how I can manage both a 5.2 repo along side a 5.3 repo with reposync and figure out what needs to be done to properly make reposync pull down the latest updates for the newer version. My original thinking was that once my repo server was upgraded to 5.3 it would start pulling the 5.3 updates but obviously I'm way off base since that is not happening.
