Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has ever had any dealings with a company called Data Recovery Corp (http://www.datarecoverycorp.com/). If so, I was just wondering what you thought of them. Thanks very much. I'm trying to recover data from a failed hard drive.

Once you've booted up and are in text mode type in

less /etc/inittab

You should see some line that looks like this:

id:5:initdefault:

near the top, if it says 3, try changing to 5 (5 is X11 mode, the GUI), you'll need to open /etc/inittab with an editor, not less to make this change. You'll also have to be root. HTH.

I'm not sure if the previous post solved the issue or not. It seemed like it would, but if it didn't you could check this topic:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/327212

It has a link to another page on how to set up what you're looking for, as well as some other useful tidbits. HTH.

Hi,

I've got a Raid5 box from consensys corp running xfs. One of the partitions has a corrupted file system and so I don't have access to the data on it, although I believe it to still be there. Does anyone know any good tools or things I can try to recover the data? Thanks.

Hi,

I've got a RAID5 raidzone from consensys that has a corrupted files system. It's file system is xfs. When I run xfs_repair it gets through the first 5 stages, sometimes giving out errors but making it through. Eventually it tries to move disconnected inodes to lost+found. It does this for a while and then produces the following error:

xfs_repair: buf calloc failed (4132 bytes): Cannot allocate memory

Since it was a memory error I tried rerunning xfs_repair again and again. It kept getting farther and farther along, ie the inodes it was moving had higher and higher numbers. However, now it doesn't go any farther. It tries to move the same inodes to lost+found over and over again, no matter how often I run xfs_repair, and fails in the same spot. If I run xfs_repair -n it gets past that spot and continues on letting me know that it would have moved inodes and reset inodes.

Does anyone know of a way to maybe skip a portion of the inodes to be fixed, or maybe another way, besides running xfs_repair to fix a corrupted file system? Thanks so much.

Hi,

I'm trying to export a directory, via NFS, from a Mac and mount it on a linux box. I followed the instructions at:

http://astcomm.net/mac/tech/nfs_howto/server/

And I got the Mac to begin exporting the directory. I was then able to mount it on another Mac. When I tried to mount it on a Linux box it did work, but it took an extremely long time. I used the mount command with '-t nfs' flags and it worked, but there must be some thing I'm not doing that's causing the extreme hangup. When I mount the exported directory on another Mac it's almost instanteous.

Is there some options I should be exporting my directory with (at the moment I'm only using 'ro')? Are the options I should be passing to the mount command on the linux box? Thank you so much.

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone knew some good open source raid operating systems. Currently I've been using the propriatary OS from raidzone.com, but their support prices are climbing ever higher and I was wondering what the open source options are. I know very little about this so any information would be greatly welcomed and appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hi,

I've just installed RedHat Enterprise Linux v4 with the mysql client and server rpm packages. I'm trying to put my mysql data directory on my /home partition, my largest partition. At the moment mysql is reading the database information from /var/lib/mysql. In the past what I would do is create a symbolic link from /var/lib/mysql to a mysql directory on my /home partition and that worked fine. But with this version of mysql it doesn't work. When I run /etc/init.d/mysql start, it fails. If I change the symbolic link back to a real directory, it works just fine. Does anyone know a way that I can use a symbolic link for the mysql database directory? Thanks.

mysql --version
mysql Ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.7, for redhat-linux-gnu (i386)

So it turns out to get the PS/2 keyboard working you must disable 'USB Legacy Support' in the BIOS (at least for the version I'm running, 1.08). Hope this helps someone out.

Hi,

I recently installed RHEL WS 4 on a machine and the installation went fine until I tried to use my keyboard. My keyboard is a Microsoft keyboard that connects via PS/2 port. When I'm booting up the machine with the keyboard connected I can use the keyboard to enter the BIOS and to select which kernel to run. But as soon as the kernel is loaded I lose the ability to use the keyboard. If I plug in a USB keyboard I can use that without a problem. I've run kudzu a number of times and it doesn't see any problems, regardless of if the PS/2 keyboard is plugged in or not. If I run kudzu and unplug the USB keyboard they it asks about the USB configuration.

I checked the file /etc/sysconfig/keyboard and the settings appear to be right:

KEYBOARDTYPE="pc"
KEYTABLE="us

Does anyone know how I can force my machine to recognize a PS/2 keyboard? Thanks so much.

I'm guessing perhaps it just wasn't meant to be? I tried installing on different machine and the installation went fine. I was even able to use the GUI and the installer didn't crash once? Does this mean there is something seriously wrong with my first machine or is it something that will force me to leave that machine running RHEL3 but not that bad. If that were the case I could certainly live with that, it just makes me nervous that I can't install on one of my machines, and I don't know why. If anyone has a guess I'd love to hear any and all of them. Thanks so much for all the help.

I understand that sometimes things aren't meant to be, but this comptuer was to be the first of many updates to RHEL 4. Needless to say I've got less confidence in my ability to update successfully than I had before. Also, just staying at RHEL 3 is not that attractive of an option because some of the patches realeased in RHEL 4 are ones I've been waiting a while to use. I could try to update a different machine, but the machine I originally used was choosen in case something like this happened, so that reformating and replacing the data could be done easily if the worst occurred.

I tried installing RHEL WS 3 via an NFS server, like I did before, and it worked without a hitch. I was able to use the GUI and am currently updating via up2date. This makes me think there is something wrong with the iso files I downloaded. The ones I downloaded were from rhn.redhat.com. I thought that was the official site to download the iso files from so that is where I went. Is there a more reliable site? Or perhaps a different part of the redhat site where I should try to redownload the iso files? Thanks so much.

Thanks for replying.

I've tried a couple of things. I've tried setting up the partions as you suggested. I've also tried doing an NFS installation. I also tried allowing the Autopartitioner to partition the hard drive at it saw fit. Doing all of these the Autopartitioner got the fartherst but none of them actually finished the installation. Now After (what seems to be a random amount of time) I get that the

QUOTE
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signalls...done
disabling swap...


At which point I have to reboot the machine by hand. I thought that perhaps the iso file I download was bad, but I've now tried three different disc1 iso files (2 disc2 iso files, as well). I'm going to try and install RHEL WS 3 on it, just to make sure that anything can install on this machine. One last note, the installation crashes with the above errors if I'm in GUI mode or text mode. Does anyone have any ideas what might be going so wrong? If so, how I could fix them? I'll post back with the results of my RHEL 3 installation. Thanks so much.

-NifflerX

P.S. I also have saved a log of the crash on a floppy. It is quite long, however if anyone thinks it will be useful, I'd be happy to post parts or all of it.

Hi,

I've been trying to install RHEL WS 4 on a x86 machine. I downloaded the four binary iso files and burned them to discs. I'm able to boot off of the first disc but when I try and run the linux installer in GUI mode it crashes. So, I've been running the installer via the text mode and I'm able to get much farther. However, during the installation I get the following error:

QUOTE
There was an error installing <package>. This can indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and /or hardware problems. This is a fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again.


I have tried multiple cds and all the ones I've burned a 4 speed have passed the media check. I thought perhaps the install was choking because of not enough room, but I partitioned the /usr partition to be 6GB and I still got the error. Also, the <package> that the installer chokes on isn't always the same. It's been either glibc-common (which occurs very early in the install) or oopenoffice.org-i18n (which occurs around the middle). I tried not installing Open Office and then I got farther along (onto binary disc 3) but I still got the same error, just with a different package. Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong here? Please let me know if I can give any information that might help. Thank you very much.

Thanks for the reply. When I tried that I got the following:

CODE
gregor 7% df -F nfs
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
remote.machine.1:/home/data
                    1439794752 783332312 656462440  55% /nfs/raidzone/data
remote.machine.2://home/small
                            1         1         1   0% /nfs/raidzone/small


I'm not sure why only one of the nfs mounts would show up correctly. Also, if I type in 'df -h' the data mount shows up the same as it does above, that is with all the correct info. But that is only since I did the 'df -F nfs' first. Any thoughts? Thanks so much.

Hi,

I'm running RHEL WS v.3. Kernel: 2.4.21-20.ELsmp. I use the automounter to mount directories via NFS. However, when I type in df -h I get the following results:

CODE
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5             996M  264M  682M  28% /
/dev/hda1              76M   41M   32M  56% /boot
/dev/hda8             9.5G  2.6G  6.5G  29% /home
/dev/hda2             3.4G  3.0G  215M  94% /opt
none                 1004M     0 1004M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda3             2.9G  2.4G  402M  86% /usr
/dev/hda6             996M   86M  860M  10% /var
remote.machine.address:/home/data
                        1     1     1   0% /nfs/raidzone/data


This doesn't impact my work in anyway because I am still able to cp and mv data to the nfs mount. I was just wondering why I'm getting this weird response. If anyone knows I'd appreciate it. Thanks so much.

Hi,

I'm running RHEL workstation v3. I connect multiple machines to a central raidzone machine via NFS. The central raidzone exports a set of directories and the individual workstation mount these directorives via the automounter and the file /etc/auto.master. Usually all works well and the directories are mounted where they are suppose to. However, recently a second automounter process spawns at the same time I lose the connection between my workstation and the raidzone.

if I type in ps -aux the following line appears twice:
/usr/sbin/automount --timeout=60 /nfs/raidzone file /etc/auto.raidzone

if I reboot the machine the above line only appears once (as it should). I was thinking that perhaps the NFS connection is getting lost somehow and the automounter is restarting in an attempt to reconnect. However, all that happens is that my terminals will no longer bring up a prompt so I get stuck and there's nothing I can do.

I have tried logging in as root when this happens and tried the following:

/etc/init.d/autofs stop (as well as restart)
umount -f /mnt/point

Both of these tell me that the device is busy and I can't unmount. Does anyone know what might be going and how I can avoid losing my connection? One other note, I believe the problem is on the workstation side because I have multiple machines connected to the raidzone and if one workstation exhibits this problem the others don't crash or necessarily have the same problem. Thanks so much.

Hi,

I've got RHEL v 3 running on multiple machines. All of them are set to update themselves (using up2date) via cron jobs. Just recently, on a few of the machines I've run out of room in the /usr directory. Because of this up2date says there isn't enough room to install the updates. I still have about 500 MB left on the partitions that don't have enough room, but I guess that's not enough. I've tried calling up2date with the --tmpdir flag but when it goes to install it still gives me the not enough room error. I've also tried removing old kernel versions but that just frees up space on the /boot partition. I was wondering if there is a good source for figuring out what everying in the in /usr partiontion does. I need to trim /usr but I know a fairly big portion of the operating system rests there so I don't want to just start hacking away at it. Does anyone have any ideas or sources that might help me determine what should stay and what should go? Thanks so much.

Hi,

I realize this is a lot latter, but I finally got this to work. I had to install kernel-source.*.rpm. After that I was able to run the driver installer from the SysKonnect website and after some warnings I was able to get it working. Thanks again for all your help.

Sorry it took so long for me to reply.

No, I haven't done anything odd with the installation, the only odd thing I have is the most of my users are network users so I don't have too many local accounts on my machines. I did an rpm search and found that:
CODE
rpm -qa | grep coreutils
coreutils-4.5.3-26

So I downloaded coreutils-4.5.3-26.i386.rpm from http://caos2.caosity.org/build8/testing/i3...6/RPMS/?C=N;O=D but after running the rpm -Uvh --force command I still couldn't use su. The installation went fine and produced no errors, but trying to su to another user still caused a segmentation fault. The coreutils I'm installing are from a Red Hat CD (not even one I bought). Is there anything else I might be able to try? Thanks so much for all your help.

If I do

su - username

I get the same error: Segmentation fault

What should I be looking for in the /tmp or /home directories? I see a lot of directories entitled orbit-username in /tmp, as well as a few ssh-<series of letters>. The only major setup change I've done is to remove the file /tmp/.X0-lock because when a user logs out, having it there causes and error message to show up. But this shouldn't affect su, should it? Thanks so much.


-NifflerX

EDIT: Sorry I didn't quite understand your post before. My /home partition is only 4% used and my / partition, where /tmp is help is only 27% full. Any other thoughts or suggestions? Thanks so much for helping me.

I am not positive about this, but you might need this line:

james   ALL=(ALL)         NOPASSWD: CRUTILS


instead of:

CODE
james   ALL=NOPASSWD: CRUTILS
