Installing RHEL 5.3 on Hp DL380G6.

Do you need to install the RAID drivers from the HP PSP pack? We run CentOS on HP Proliant servers and it generally seems to be fine once it's installed.

I believe we do install those drivers but I don't know whether that's during the OS installation or afterwards.

Question regarding conman folder in /var/log

Yes.

Or, at least, it's on every CentOS machine that I've looked at. And it's empty on all of them.

Re: Firefox/Xulrunner conflicts on updates.

BTW, I think I may finally have resolved this: at the weekend even yum refused to update complaining about xulrunner being incompatible with Firefox versions before 3.6. Which I thought was a bit strange as I have 3.6.11 installed. I then discovered that yum thought I have _nine_ different versions ...

Re: Lock screen stopped working?

Yeah, I noticed that it was working at home last night, so perhaps it is just broken until you reboot again; that machine has been rebooted since the update, the other one hasn't.

Re: FreeBSD to CentOS and "Advanced format" disks - please help

Yeah, if it's partitioned wrong then pretty much every access will be misaligned.

Otherwise, use 4k blocks for the filesystem if it supports that option; if it's partitioned to start on a 4k boundary and it uses 4k blocks, you should get the best possible performance out of the system.

Re: Fglrx is toast on latest kernel?

Fortunately Ubuntu has a fix, so if anyone else uses fglrx you'll need to manually edit the source until ATI release a new version: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/642518/comments/14 You'll need to extract the relevant part of the Ubuntu patch and apply it to kcl_ioctl...

Re: Lock screen stopped working?

Yeah, my home system is broken now: the only updates it received were the bzip libs and new kernel and I verified that it was working before I did the update. $ gnome-screensaver-command lock gnome-screensaver-Message: Screensaver is not running! $ gnome-screensaver $ gnome-screensaver-command --loc...

Re: Fglrx is toast on latest kernel?

Ah, yes, fglrx is indeed completely broken by this kernel fix:

http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25485

A method which wasn't previously marked as GPL is now marked as GPL so fglrx can't compile.
