(Are Mandrake, AsianUX and UnitedLinux still around enough to certify compatibility on new software?) Definitely check the suggestions at: What version of RHEL am I using? But beyond that, look at facter if you have some control over the systems this software will be deployed on. If this is software that will be shipped and run on systems that you don't ...

I have seen this problem many times on RHEL/Centos. I had to create quagga user and groups as given below: grep quagga /etc/passwd quagga:x:92:92:Quagga routing suite:/var/run/quagga:/sbin/nologin grep quagga /etc/group quaggavt:x:85: quagga:x:92: And do "yum update quagga". This should work, it worked for me.

There are no definitive/standard methods that will work across all major distributions. You'll have to use extra code to figure it out to the best of your knowledge (based on how you understand each distribution make this information available). If this is for an installation script, give the user the option of specifying it by hand. If you want o be super ...

For files you want Apache to be able to write to, the type must be set to httpd_sys_rw_content_t.

lsb_release -a See Linux Standard Base documentation As per your question you mention this as an alternative in case the above do not work. You should use lsb_release first as it is the standard. Also it should return more information than the enterprise-release command, specifically the LSB Version line (eg, lsb_release -v)

I believe you can accomplish this in the /etc/samba/smb.conf file. If your local Linux permissions are correct, you can use the "force group" string to make sure you're connecting with the correct group membership. What tends to throw people off is that the user may already be a member of the local Linux group, but as far as SMB is concerned, the group you ...

Hmm, looks like a Supermicro. Are you sure your hardware is healthy? This just requires troubleshooting steps. Try booting without the new CPU. Try swapping the physical CPUs. Eliminate the CPU socket as the cause. Take the appropriate actions based on these results.

If using RHEL/CentOS/Fedora, I'd suggest using the numad daemon. (Red Hat paywall link). While I don't have much use for the numactl --interleave directive, it seems you've determined that your workload requires it. Can you explain why this is the case in order to provide some better context? Edit: It seems that most applications that recommend explicit ...

If you don't have a subscription anymore and that's not likely to change, and you don't care about losing Redhat's (or other vendor's for that matter) support for this box in the future, you can switch it to CentOS and have your box updated with its packages. It's not ideal, but it may still preferable to having a box you can't update anymore. You have been ...

Step 1 - testing aliases processing: As root execute the following test commands (Use the second one only if the first ones shows some problems): sendmail -d27.2 -bv root sendmail -d27.2 -d44.4 -bv root It should allow you to rule out or locate a few most likely causes such as: sendmail looking for alias file in different location (e.g. ...

This looks like what happens when there's a SAN zoning problem keeping server #1 from seeing one of the SAN's interfaces, or you're having problems with one of server #1's HBAs.

It sounds like this customer should either have their own organisation inside the satellite (and you could then give them org admin rights if you so desired), OR you should clone the channels you need, and then, when they say go, you go into each cloned channel and update it (can't quite think of the terminology right now, but its next to the 'sync' button. ...

You can still install the gnupg (v1) package in Fedora, so it might be available in CentOS as well. You can have both gnupg and gnupg2 installed at the same time in Fedora. Alternatively, to get gpg2 to work how you expect (i.e., for the --passphrase* options to actually do anything) you need to use the --batch option.

On RHEL / CentOS 6 and 7, for whatever reason ntpq tries to query the IPv6 loopback at ::1 instead of the IPv4 loopback at 127.0.0.1. With this in mind, I added this line to my /etc/ntp.conf file: restrict ::1 Saved the file then restarted ntpd (service ntpd restart) and now the command: ntpq -p works as expected. (This is the same as running ntpq in ...

yum update doesn't always pull the repo immediately. I have had to use rhn_register if you have no internet connection, and if you do have an internet connection you can use rhn_check instead in certain cases to draw from the newly create local cdrom repo.

Also See http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1001511 for what helped me. I had to add the mode lines to the "Screen" section, mount the vmware cd manually and reboot to get my vmware installation working. Workaround the issue by manually selecting a screen resolution of 1024 x 768, either ...

What we think of as the initial setup is actually in three parts. The first two are: Initial setup, which asks you to accept the license and create a user Firstboot, which asks you to configure kdump and (on RHEL) set up your subscription Both of these are now enabled via systemd; once complete they disable themselves. So, all you should have to do is ...
