That is provided by a package called "pirut". You can try doing a "yum
update pirut" but it might want to update its dependencies as well.

Hi,



I am running rhel5.0 in one host and rhel5.4 on another.



I noticed that the system-config-packages on rhel 5.4 when you click

The 'Browse' tab it shows the packages by 'Desktop Environment',
'Applications',

'Development', etc...



On rhel 5.0 the Browse tab does not show anything.



Is there a way to upgrade the system-config-packages command to the
latest

on my rhel5.0 ( I do not want to upgrade the OS)?



Thanks,



N?stor J

Howdy Everyone,

I'm new to RHREL 5.4 and am trying to setup an NTP server on my network.
I've done lots of googling and man page reading, but I'm still a bit
confused on a few things.

1. Do I need to have a step-tickers file? If so, why?

2. When I configure my client RHEL machines to access my NTP server, is it
better to run ntpd or use ntpdate in a cron job? I've seen articles with
people using both methods so I'm not sure which is better.

3. My ntp.conf file has a line that says "restrict default kod nomodify
notrap no peer noquery". Do I still need to have separate restrict lines
for each of my server entries or will that one line cover all of them? Eg.
restrict ntp.server.org mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery

Thanks guys.

Those are where it's looking for steps.

it better to run ntpd or use ntpdate in a cron job? I've seen articles
with people using both methods so I'm not sure which is better.

I assume you're online, not on dialup. If online, run the daemon. I only
use the ntpdate to sync the server up to start with, or if something's
happened.

3. My ntp.conf file has a line that says "restrict default kod nomodify
notrap no peer noquery". Do I still need to have separate restrict lines
for each of my server entries or will that one line cover all of them?
Eg. restrict ntp.server.org mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery

You've got a default, further up.

I used MediaWiki. There's nothing if i use the edit. it just displays the

"ExtensionFileLink" though -- does this basically, means, file linking in
the wiki is not enabled by default?

Hi,
I have a local wiki page in our intranet. I am trying to make a "file
link" in one of the pages such that our users will just have to click
that link and the file would be displayed in the local computers, and also
i like to link a file such that it would downloaded into their computer
after clicking it. But the link is just showing as normal text and does
not have the link to click on it. Typing the link in browser, Firefox,
works fine. How do i add this in my wiki page?

file://///remotefileserver/data/systemfiles/testfile.txt

It might help if you told us *which* wiki software you have installed. It
also might help if you edit the wiki in the wiki editor, and see what it
tells you to use for a link.

I?m looking for a memory problem on a system using the pmap command.

This is an output:
# pmap -d 4302
#
.....
49770000 128896 rwx-- 0000000049770000 000:00000 [ anon ]

.....

I have a lot of used memory and the line that takes my attention is
this:
51550000 1398144 rwx-- 0000000051550000 000:00000 [ anon ]

But now I don?t know how to handle it. What can I do with this info? how
can
I know why there is so much memory there?

Thanks in advance

ESG

It's always a good idea to tell us your Red Hat and kernel version. On any
slightly newer version, you can see more details about any memory segment
in smaps pseudo file under /proc/<pid>. Your 1.4 GB anonymous memory is
allocated private to that process. Some programs are written in a way to
use
lots of memory for data processing. Other than asking the developer to
change the code, there's not much you can do. If they can't do it and you
have multiple such processes running at the same time, ask the developer
to
see if they can rewrite to use shared memory, or at least a large portion
of
it as shared.

If the memory keeps growing and never comes down, that's another issue.
Tell the developer he must fix the memory leak.

Hi,

the kernel I have is this:

Looking at the file:
/proc/4302/maps I don?t see anything that gives me any idea.

How can I detect the memory leak looking at this? How can I know where is
the memory?

Thanks,

Can you be more specific by "what is affected"? The system will notify you
of any dependencies that need to be updated when you run "yum update pirut"
and give you a chance to decide whether you would like to proceed or not.

If you are looking for files that change when you do an install, you could
always do something like "find / -cmin x" to see what files were modified in
the last x minutes.

yum update pirut will tell you what packages will be affected before they
are patched. Man yum for more information.

FYI, running a 5.0 box is a pretty major security risk.

Can you be more specific by "what is affected"? The system will notify you
of any dependencies that need to be updated when you run "yum update pirut"
and give you a chance to decide whether you would like to proceed or not.

If you are looking for files that change when you do an install, you could
always do something like "find / -cmin x" to see what files were modified in
the last x minutes.

How do I find out what is affected by updating the pirut package?

Thanks,

That is provided by a package called "pirut". You can try doing a "yum
update pirut" but it might want to update its dependencies as well.

Hi,



I am running rhel5.0 in one host and rhel5.4 on another.



I noticed that the system-config-packages on rhel 5.4 when you click

The 'Browse' tab it shows the packages by 'Desktop Environment',
'Applications',

'Development', etc...



On rhel 5.0 the Browse tab does not show anything.



Is there a way to upgrade the system-config-packages command to the
latest

on my rhel5.0 ( I do not want to upgrade the OS)?



Thanks,



N?stor J

yum update pirut will tell you what packages will be affected before they
are patched. Man yum for more information.
<snip>
To be more explicit - yum update will show you everything to be updated
(without anything, it will try to update the entire system)... but then
*ask* you [y/N]. This is as opposed to yum -y update <whatever>, which
will do it without stopping to ask.

Hi,

If you open # vim /etc/ntp.conf file then you can see bellow section :

# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project.
# Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html).
server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org
server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org

now need to put ntp server there to sync with client machine

Howdy Everyone,

I'm new to RHREL 5.4 and am trying to setup an NTP server on my network.
I've done lots of googling and man page reading, but I'm still a bit
confused on a few things.

1. Do I need to have a step-tickers file? If so, why?

2. When I configure my client RHEL machines to access my NTP server, is
it
better to run ntpd or use ntpdate in a cron job? I've seen articles with
people using both methods so I'm not sure which is better.

3. My ntp.conf file has a line that says "restrict default kod nomodify
notrap no peer noquery". Do I still need to have separate restrict lines
for each of my server entries or will that one line cover all of them?
Eg.
restrict ntp.server.org mask 255.255.255.255 nomodify notrap noquery

Thanks guys.
