|Dyson||alleycat: 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
|alleycat||Dyson: can you post it somewhere, please ? looks like you have plenty of goodies I did not know about...|
|Dyson||alleycat: I'd like to|
|Foddz||is 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.|
|alleycat||Foddz: I think that if you use another name inside the ifcfg-name it will be used as such|
Dyson: pastebin? dcc ?
|Dyson||Foddz: in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX if there is a HWADDR line the interface will be renamed|
|Foddz||thank you Dyson, I'll take a look.|
|Dyson||Foddz: 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 :)
|alleycat||Dyson: and from there?|
nothing obvious in tips&tricks / howto
|range||alleycat: Not yet :)|
|Dyson||alleycat: yeah, I'm just about to write it :)|
|Tourner||ooops, thanks for the reply alleycat - for some reason I got all the replies until now in one block!|
|IonutVan||did somebody install the new openvz kernel based on redhat 5 ?|
this include both virtualization software: xen and openvz?
|cleanpro||question 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?
|alleycat||cleanpro: at least password, shadow and groups should be there|
plus crontab, rc.sysinit...
|cleanpro||i 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!!!!!!!!!!!!
|alleycat||cleanpro: 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|
|cleanpro||i saw the content of etc there were folders but no inittab, or password, shadow, groups, etc.....|
|alleycat||so_: but cleanpro is on c4 not beta, AFAIK|
cleanpro: are you using centos 4 or 5 beta ?
unless my system did an automatic upgrade that i'm unaware of....
|alleycat||cleanpro: are you 1000.00 % sure that there was no rm /etc/* ?|
|cleanpro||i 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/* ?
