I have a few servers running Fedora 4 core, And I would like to keep them
update using yum. This way I will have the security updates and such. I have
been using the command from the
*su -c '/sbin/chkconfig --level 345 yum on; /sbin/service yum start'
But I do have a few servers that run as postgresql and mysql databases
will yum wipe my database if it decides or see an update for
mysql or postgres*

I'm running FC3 (updated) on a handful of machines.
I have a single IP address, with a NATing router set to that
address. I have a domain, and an MX which points through
the router at my mail server (or rather, the router is configured
to port-forward 25, 143, etc to the mail server).
I also have several mail clients on my 192.168.1.x network.
The issues are the following:
* the clients have a smart host (DS) defined as the mail relay,
but they canonical its name and then look it up in the DNS,
trying to contact it on the external IP address (and not its
internal 192.168.1.x address in the /etc/hosts file). My
/etc/nsswitch.conf file is unmodified.
* the clients then try to relay the email with a sender's envelope
address as user(a)host.my-domain, which the relay rejects
because "host.my-domain" doesn't resolve in the DNS.
* I should probably have define(`LOCAL_RELAY', `:$S') to
handle forwarding everything to the mail server.
I used to know all of this stuff once upon a time...
Am I missing anything?
i'm trying to burn a DVD using k3b, as i usually do for CD burning. I'm
using 4,7GB size DVD-R. The problem is that i cannot burn a 4,4GB. file.
The file is exactly 4,613,704,668 bytes long.
The message i get from k3b is the following:
/usr/bin/mkisofs: Value too large for defined data type
File <file> is too large - ignoring
It seems like the problem is the file size, but that file should fit in
a DVD, shouldn't it? Is there any limit in the size of files written to
The other day while I was running oocalc in the FC4
distribution of the OpenOffice.org suite the program
crashed and a dialog message came up stating that "OOo
has crashed ..." and requesting that I send a bug
report with the displayed information. Assuming that
the request was from the OpenOffice.org team, I filed
a bug report with them, taking the time to provide a
substantial amount of supporting information. I
received back a terse request that I file bug reports
against the latest, not the production version of the
software I am running. When I wrote back to point out
that I wasn't a beta tester, and that I had only filed
a bug report because they had asked me to, they
retorted that it wasn't their software that had
crashed, and made it very clear that they don't want
bug reports for derived versions of their software
which they didn't build themselves. I wrote back and
apologized for having bothered them, thinking that the
dialog box requesting the bug report had been put up
by the OOo team, rather than the Fedora team, and I
promised that I would pass along to the Fedora team a
suggestion that your build should not be requesting
bug reports for builds of OOo created by the Fedora
team. So that's what I'm doing.
(Yes, I know it doesn't make any sense for developers
to turn down carefully prepared feedback on problems
in their software, no matter where it's built. I'm
just passing on what I was told by the OOo team.

That helped me on my zd8000. FC3 wav audio worked fine on this laptop, but
it went silent on the "upgrade" to FC4. Looks like this fix ought to go
back into the main tree.
Since the pgrade to OO2, we have random crashes in Writer. As they
happen to my wife and not me, I'm not there to see what happend 'just
before', but she says that 'nothing' happend just before. Is there a
log to check? If I open it for her at the command line, will it leave
output when it crashes?

Subject: Installing Gnome 2.12 in Fedora
I found this nice little tutorial on how to install the newest Gnome
2.12 in Fedora Core, it works perfectly! You will definatly notice the
difference from 2.10! Check it out and let me know how it works for you!
Note: I am not taking credit for writing this, nor am I the technical
support for it.
Wow, this is great, it's easy and it works. A bug I had with Nautilus in FC4's Gnome 2.10 is
gone. Plus all the new features. I highly recommend doing this. Next I will do my laptop!!!
"Linux may not be as vulnerable as Windows, but if you think Linux viruses don't exist, you'd better think again. Virus writers have any number of possibilities"
I have just read this sentence and I'm concerned because I have only firewall(from router a from FC4) working on FC4. Could you explain to me wich actions I should take? Note: I have Toshiba laptop, FC4, Gnome and Thunderbird. The only programs I know are Clamav and Spamassassin. Is it enough? Although I know FC4 has SELinux. Best regards, Joao.
I am brand new to the Unix/Linux world, just started taking the
plunge. First of all, please forgive me if this is not the
appropriate place to ask such questions...
I just installed Fedora Core 4 and have been playing around with it
for several weeks now. I also have a Windows XP machine connected to
the same router as the linux box. I'd love to be able to do
everything from one machine, therefore setting up an X server on the
windows box to run X programs and have them appear on my windows
machine. I downloaded Xwin32 and have been able to do what I just described.
However I'd like to take it to the next level and be able to popup
the entire KDE desktop on my windows machine. I believe that the way
to do this is using XDMCP, and then Xwin32 is only remotely managing
the KDE session running on the Linux PC. However, upon trying to use
the XDMCP option in Xwin32 to connect, my entire Windows desktop
turns grey, with a slightly linux-y looking mouse pointer, but
nothing ever happens. I need to Alt-tab to get back to any of my
other windows programs. Has anyone ever seen this before?
A few things:
1. In the KDE Login settings (I believe that runs gdmsetup), I've
checked "Enable XDMCP" on the XDMCP tab (I'm using the SAMS Red Hat
Fedora 4 book and it led me to believe that this is all I would need to do).
2. I've edited /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config to comment out the line
"DisplayManager.requestPort: 0". I added a "!" in front of that line.
3. I've edited /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc to change the line "Enable=false"
to "Enable=true" under [Xdmcp]. Both this step and step 2 I found
from various internet postings and thought I'd give them a try.
4. On my network, my windows PC gets a dynamic IP address from my
router and I configured the Linux machine to use a static IP. I've
set up Xwin32 to connect to Linux using it's IPaddress, and the
Xwin32 configuration specifies the IP address of the windows machine
to route its display back to. Both machines can only ping each other
using their IPaddresses, not hostnames (I've nothing set up in the
host files for either machine).
Between each configuration steps 1, 2 and 3, I restarted the Linux
machine (the postings mentioned restarting just X, but I didn't know
how to do that. They actually mentioned restarting the X server, but
that didn't make sense to me. Isn't the Xserver what is running on
my Windows PC, but I made the changes on the Linux side? I thought I
would need to restart whatever is running on the Linux side, is that
referred to as the X client?).
Well, that's really it. Have I missed a magic step somewhere along
the line, or is the problem more complicated, related to my
hardware/firewall setup perhaps (I tried this while disabling my
Windows firewall, no luck)? At this point, I'm not really sure if
the issue is the Linux configuration, my network or the X server
configuration on my PC. Maybe a different X server (CygwinX
perhaps?) would give me better luck?
Sorry if this is such a basic thing, I really am just barely starting
to figure this thing out.
Thanks, any help would be appreciated!
