Akregator errors.

Normally I start Akregator at login to keep track of six fora I subscribe to (including this one). It seems to work fine, but every login I get a message that an application is needing additional software. After a bit of tracking it is Akregator looking for: Unfortunately the dataengine-microblog yo...

Re: Deader than a doornail.

CentOS Social may be moribund, but between 2305 yesterday and 1502 today there were 65 posts to the forum. That's a pretty lively nail.

Re: How to add loopback to my kernel?

Loop devices are created on demand. On a system that has no loop devices in use: # ls /dev/loop* /dev/loop-control # losetup -f /dev/loop0 This shows that there are no loop devices, and that the first one to be used is loop0 . If now I mount a device: # mount /virt/ISOs/CentOS-5.11.iso /mnt mount: /...

[solved] SELinux and OwnCloud

I've just been around the "clear error - reboot" loop three times and SELinux is still logging access denials from sources such as systemd, ip, iptables, cupsd, modprobe, chkpwd and others. I've tried, but its time to turn off SELinux and get a life. Trevor's fix worked for a while, but I fear the d...

Re: SELinux and OwnCloud

I've just got caught again by these hidden blocks. If there ever any reason to reenable the "dontaudit" events? To be realistic it is clear that I need to run with them disabled, or else just set SELinux to permissive and forget it as usual. I'm trying to avoid the latter on a new system, but at thi...

Rendering man pages as HTML on the fly.

Under C6 I had an application or a setting that enabled me to search for and view man pages as nicely formatted HTML. I've used man2html to generate static pages, but IIRC this application allowed any page to be formatted on the fly, and even to solicit the page in a dialogue. Does anyone have an id...

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

If you add the function definition to the the user's .bashrc then they will do nothing except use $ ssh.

Please note: the term "2>X" in the example should read "2>/path/to/log/file", it was a copy-and-paste from my test example!

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

To answer the first part:

Code: Select all

$ ssh -vvv 2>logfile.log remote.host.name
for the second, try setting something along the lines of:

Code: Select all

function ssh { /bin/ssh -vvv 2>X "$@"; }
then invoke as

Code: Select all

$ ssh remote.host.name

Re: Partitioning mistake fix forgot to add /home

XFS was designed for big memory multi-processor systems back in the '90s, so pretty well any desktop by now. For part of the time it was under development by SGI, they owned Cray and there were technology transfers between the two parts. See the Wikipedia entry for more details: https://en.wikipedia...
