Signature server

Are your mirror servers using yum to download updates autmoatically, and put them in the directory for further download?

If this is the case, just read the "man yum.conf" page and use the "exclude" option on your mirror's yum configurtion to ignore internet updates for that list of packages.

initrd's init script

The default initrd uses nash because it's small and does the job of loading modules, mounting filesystems, after which the kernel executes the real /sbin/init. You can put any executable you want in it's place, even a full fledged version of bash (either compiled static, or with all the correct libs...

Re: Remote Exploit

Hi all, I about fell out of my chair when I saw this thing spring up. I manage a few shell "gateway" servers with many non-root users on them, with a CentOS 5 machine. I then took a deep breath after the exploit didn't work on my machines :) I'm using grsecurity-2.1.11, built with the 2.6.23.14 kern...

What is CentOS's redistribution policy?

Hello, I've done RHEL / CentOS kickstart builds for a while, and finally decided to make a customized linux distribution based off of CentOS 5 for the control panel project I've been working on for the past few years. Basically an ISO image to burn to a CD to autoinstall the OS with everything neede...

LDAP and qmail (or dovecot)

As far as I know dovecot on CentOS is built with the --with-ldap option, and support for it is pretty good. Dovecot isn't an MTA, it's a POP3/IMAP server. Just to keep terminology straight. I use it as the currently only supported pop3/imap server in my project RavenCore, and I believe it to be quit...

Re: apache chewing up resources

Are you running a shared server or is your website(s) the only things running on the system? The reason I ask is because php (and other scripting languages) has a few things like mysql_pconnect, which if not closed specifically, they stay open. And if the script is called 100 times a day, you'll fin...

Sendmail problem

Sendmail has a primitive virtual user table implementation, meaning sales@onedomain goes to sales, but if you want sales@anotherdomain to go to a DIFFERENT inbox, yo have to map it to another unix user, say, sales2 I suggest you use postfix instead. An easy automated setup for postfix and virtual ma...
