Dysonalleycat: and there is a directive called "cmdline" that can be used to force the installer to run in plain shell mode
alleycat: it helped me a lot when debugging my kickstart-installations, because you don't get a fancy gui that hides all the interesting stuff
alleycatDyson: can you post it somewhere, please ? looks like you have plenty of goodies I did not know about...
Dysonalleycat: I'd like to
Foddzis there a way to permanently rename an interface (say from 'eth0' to something else)? I'm familiar with the nameif command to change the interface's name, but when I reboot the machine, 'eth0' is back.
alleycatFoddz: I think that if you use another name inside the ifcfg-name it will be used as such
Dyson: pastebin? dcc ?
DysonFoddz: in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX if there is a HWADDR line the interface will be renamed
Foddzthank you Dyson, I'll take a look.
DysonFoddz: i.e. when the interface name is set and hwaddr is set the interface with the corresponding hwaddr will be renamed to the name given
alleycat: wiki.centos.org :)
alleycatDyson: and from there?
nothing obvious in tips&tricks / howto
rangealleycat: Not yet :)
Dysonalleycat: yeah, I'm just about to write it :)
Tournerooops, thanks for the reply alleycat - for some reason I got all the replies until now in one block!
IonutVandid somebody install the new openvz kernel based on redhat 5 ?
this include both virtualization software: xen and openvz?
cleanproquestion for anyone who can answer...
in the /etc/ dir does anyone not have files in that dir? other than folders?
all i have is an inittab and a hault file...
i just copied the inittab from the live cd, but should i do all the other files as well?
alleycatcleanpro: at least password, shadow and groups should be there
plus crontab, rc.sysinit...
cleanproi just copied all the files from the live cd
CRAP! i copied the new inittab file from the live cd and reboot, and i still get the no inittab file found!!!!!!!!!!!!
alleycatcleanpro: if you mounted the hard disk using the live cd, you should have seen the content of /etc
if it was empty.. you have more problems, not just a missing inittab
are you sure the hardware is OK ?
so_z00dax had reported this problem when upgrading to the beta on x86_64, I have seen 3 or 4 people with this inittab problem now too
cleanproi saw the content of etc there were folders but no inittab, or password, shadow, groups, etc.....
alleycatso_: but cleanpro is on c4 not beta, AFAIK
cleanpro: are you using centos 4 or 5 beta ?
cleanprocentos 4
unless my system did an automatic upgrade that i'm unaware of....
alleycatcleanpro: are you 1000.00 % sure that there was no rm /etc/* ?
cleanproi have even bigger problems now. i restarted and it still says no inittab, so i rebooted with the live cd again...
and now my mnt/sda6 file is completely empty!!!!
alleycat: what do you mean rd /etc/* ?
* rm/etc/*
