New to CentOS. Problem sending mail.

Configure sendmail or postfix, and edit /etc/aliases... find the "root" entry that is commented out, remove the comment and make it say "root: you@somedomain.com" and run "newaliases".

Done.

Re: Two servers - two different responses to yum search mercurial. Why?

If I were a mod, I would just move the relevant posts over there. Since I'm not (and don't want to be), I probably won't.

[Moderator edit: Only entire threads can be moved, not individual posts. :-( ]

Re: Two servers - two different responses to yum search mercurial. Why?

Feel free to modify it. Perhaps we should start a new thread about this. I think maybe making it a here document instead of all those redirects, and echo comments showing what the command was, etc... We need Alan to come in and put in lots of FONTS and COLORS! :-D [Moderator edit: [color=0033FF][fon...

Re: Two servers - two different responses to yum search mercurial. Why?

Maybe put it into a cut & pastable script: [code] ---cut here--- #! /bin/bash # Run this script and then cut and paste from /tmp/basedata.txt # to the forum along with your question. /bin/uname -rmi >> /tmp/basedata.txt echo >> /tmp/basedata.txt /bin/rpm -q rpm python yum centos-release >> /tmp/base...

Re: Two servers - two different responses to yum search mercurial. Why?

That's certainly an excellent start, and it could always be added to later as the needs present themselves. The point of the whole thing is to avoid the constant thrash of stuff we go through here over and over again, and that would go a long way toward giving us a base. I would like to see it as a ...

slow login

Generally, it is not a good idea to have much in /etc/hosts. I like to keep it to the bare minimum, ie: [code] 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost www.xxx.yyy.zzz mail.mydomain.com mail ldap [/code] If you start putting info about external systems in there, it's too easy to forget about it.

Two servers - two different responses to yum search mercuria

Sure would be nice if we knew stuff like this at the beginning rather than after 15 back and forth posts. When I worked for a major graphics workstation manufacturer, we used to have a script we would send to the customer to collect a base set of data. Then at least we would know what we were dealin...

[SOLVED] my intel 3945 troubles

Get it on the computer you are posting from, copy it to a USB stick and put that in the CentOS box.

Or, can you set it up on wired ethernet long enough to go out and get the firmware?
