Re: ipw3945 support - where are the RPMs ? They are included with RHEL 5 !

So why haven't these rpms been built for Centos from the RHEL source rpms ?

Is it because there on the supplementary cd and presumably source isn't available for these (having taken a quick peek at ftp.redhat.com) ?

Does that mean none of the rpms on the supplementary cd have been built for Centos ?

ipw3945 support - where are the RPMs ? They are included with RHEL 5 !

I am trying to locate the Centos 5 ipw3945 rpm files in order to support my onboard WLAN device in my Acer x86_64 laptop. I can't seem to find these rpms within the Centos 5 repositories. I have, however, found the following on the RHEL 5 supplementary disc: ipw3945d-1.7.22-2.el5.x86_64.rpm kmod-ipw...

Re: Sunfire V120

The V120 is an Ultrasparc based machine and since Centos only builds on Intel (and equivalent) processors, you will not get Centos for this server.

There are, however, other Linuxes available for your architecture. See Debian or Gentoo for example.

Re: lvrename of root lv issue

/etc/fstab does have the new path.


I don't understand why the LVM reports the new name, but when you do a chroot df reports the old name.

I think this is what is causing the kernel panic on reboot.

Re: lvrename of root lv issue

I have tried that, and I get the same issue with LVM seeing the lv with the new name but the OS seeing the old name still. Hence a panic on boot because it can't find /.

lvrename of root lv issue

I am seeing the following issue when I rename the LV containing the root filesystem on a SCSI disk within a vmware server guest: 1. lvrename works ok. 2. I can confirm new LV names with lvscan. 3. mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-xxx.img `uname -r`. 4. Update /etc/fstab with NEW_LV entry. 5. When I reboot I...

backing up a mounted filesystem?

If you are using the Logical Volume manager, you can create 'snapshot' volumes to create backups. Quote: "A snapshot volume is a special type of volume that presents all the data that was in the volume at the time the snapshot was created. This means we can back up that volume without having to worr...

software RAID 1 of '/' after installation

Just curious...

Is there a way to set up software RAID 1 mirroring of '/' after installation ? (a bit like how you can do it in Solaris with disksuite/volume manager).

Can it be done 'live' ?

Re: I need some advices

You will be fine installing Centos under VMWARE server using Windows XP as a host. Whether you choose to install on a physical machine or within a virtual one is really up to you, but installing in VMWARE gives you the added benefit of enabling snapshots. You could for example take a snapshot just a...
