Subject: [Centos] network card / kudzu

When I have installed centOS, Kudzu says my network cards have been removed,
and 
right after it finds them again and asks me to configure them?

It looks like it is the same thing it finds that it just said was removed.

There are 3 Relatek|RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ cards in there and it is all of
them it
will remove and reconfigure.

It doesn't matter if I select ignore or reconfigure them, they still work
after the
reboot. It is just a little strange and seems a little buggy ;)

Denis,

You wrote:

Maybe you have me confused with someone else.  

I did not write or imply that nVIDIA cards never work.
 Rather, I wrote that they may not work.  By this, I
meant that they do not work with some monitors.  

I checked what I wrote, and I believe the above
paragraph is correct.  If you disagree with me and
stand by your statement, please refer me to the
sentence(s) that I wrote that back you up.  

In addition to me, two people have written to the
group recently about the nVIDIA problem.  They can
vouch for the fact that there is sometimes a problem. 


I agree that nVIDIA cards work for many people
(including for me, which I also wrote).  But the fact
that they work for many people does not solve the
problem when one does not work with a specific
monitor.  

This topic is near and dear to my heart, as I first
encountered the problem when I was trying to install
CentOS on machine with an nVIDIA card and using a
monitor with which nVIDIA cards do not work (my Mag
DX1495).  At the beginning, I did not know that the
card was the problem, I only knew that the screen went
blank toward the end of the install.  In addition to
trying to solve the problem by tweeking the XF86Config
file (boy, was that futile!), it literally took me
hours of parts swapping, distribution swapping, and OS
swapping (trying Windows too), to finally figure out
that the nVIDIA card was the problem.  (Some might say
that the card/monitor combination was the problem, but
Windows has no problem with the combination.)

Maybe my frustration with nVIDIA cards shows, and as a
result, my emails on this topic are easily
misinterpreted.  

Rick

System = CentOS / Apache 2.0 / HTML files location =  /var/www/html

Nat'd IP - ports 80, 20, 21 already opened & routed to internal ip.

I desperately need the quick & dirty solution.

I need a setup where one user can ftp from another desktop (windows) to
upload new website files. I currently have CuteFTP, but will use anything
needed at this point.

I need to try to test this today. VERY new to linux, I am completely bogged
down trying to learn command-line syntax.

Thanks in advance, Beth

Subject: [Centos] CPAN problems?


Sorry if this is off topic, but the cpan mail list seems quite ded, and I
was
wondering if any of you have had the same problem.

when ever I do a
perl -MCPAN -e "install Bundle::CPAN"

I get this error:
----------------------------------
Net::Telnet is up to date.
Net::Cmd is up to date.
Bundle summary: The following items in bundle Bundle::libnet had
installation problems:
  Data::Dumper
Term::ReadKey is up to date.
Term::ReadLine::Perl is up to date.
CPAN is up to date.
Bundle summary: The following items in bundle Bundle::CPAN had installation
problems:
  Digest::MD5 Bundle::libnet and the following items had problems during
  recursive bundle calls: Data::Dumper
----------------------------------

I have done it on my redhat9 and centos-3.3 box and both gave same error?
Anybody out there have a solution ?

Beth:

I use pure-ftpd. I've found this ftp server to be the easiest and most 
secure to set-up for Redhat systems.  Go to:

http://www.pureftpd.org/

The Redhat binary (rpm) version can be downloaded here:

ftp://ftp.pureftpd.org/pub/pure-ftpd/releases/binaries/redhat/

You'll probably want the "i686" version.

Install the rpm package (you'll need to be root to do this):

# rpm -Uvh pure-ftpd-1.0.19-1.i686.rpm

And that's it.

Michael

Port 20 outgoing, you mean?  Shouldn't need to be any connections 
*to* port 20 on the FTP server.

First of all, make sure the vsftpd package is installed and running.
(rpm -q vsftpd)

If it's not, it'll be on your install media or can easily be acquired 
with "yum -y install vsftpd"

Then do "service vsftpd start" to start the FTP server.

Are you just trying to prove the concept today, or do you need your 
user to be able to upload files to the document root right now?

If the former, simply create a new user account and set a password 
for it.  The vsftpd server will immediately allow logins to the 
users' home directory with their username/password.  Any files placed 
in public_html/ in a home directory should be automatically mapped by 
apache to httpd://[server.dom.ain]/~[userid]/.  If you need to upload 
files directly to the document root, things get a little more 
complicated, and there's more than one approach depending on how 
security-conscious you need to be.

We prefer to nvidia cards with CentOS-2.  I have never had the problem

Subject: Re: [Centos] Need apache ftp help please

As you can see from the other posts, ftp is tricky.  Someone already 
suggested that you use scp/ssh which is what I would recommend.  There 
is a decent windows program called winscp which is similar to windows 
ftp programs.

There is also a command line tool from putty called pscp.

When it comes to NAT, you need to look at both the internal and external 
networks separately.

Firstly, assuming you want the external network (The internet) to 
connect to your web server, you need to allow port 80.  If you want the 
external network to talk to your ssh server (for scp) then you need port 
22 as well.

If ssh is only for internal then you don't need to worry about NAT.

Also (AFAIK) if you are using NAT then there should be a 1 to 1 mapping 
from internal to external IP addresses, in which case it is quite likely 
that all ports are translated and forwarded anyway.  If you mean you 
have a 1 to many (Only one IP on the internet) then you need to nominate 
which IP of the many to forward connections to (port forwarding).

None of this has anything to do with a command line and everything to do 
with reading the manuals/FAQs/HOWTOs etc.

Subject: [Centos] HOWTO?  Upgrade Centos-2 to Centos-3

I've been Googling on this all day, installing GPG Keys, and trying
different yum configurations.  I noticed a similar question in the list a
couple of months ago about going from RHEL to Centos-3, but the answer
wasn't definitive.

Has anyone done this?  Can this be done?  Can it be done with yum?  If so,
how?

When I 'yum update' I get /usr/bin/yum, yummain.main, yummain.py,
clientStuff.py errors, and a "ValueError: unpack list of wrong size"
error.

Would definitely appreciate any direction.

Thanks,
JAB*
