Tini_cpnHi guys~ :p
teknoprepanyone have a how-to on installing vmware-server on centos 5 ?
Evolutionteknoprep: vmware hasn't said 'yes' to vmware-server on centos5 yet, but so long as you're not using the xen kernel, it works just like centos4 or fedora core.
teknoprephaving problems installing vmware-server on centos5 tho
ran the rpm but nothing is running
just keeps me running the config over and over again
docta_vanyone with amanda backup experience here?
overseercentos-4 + flash9 + firefox 1.5.0.9 == no audio -- no google help -- any suggestions?
Mathmandocta_v: yep
overseer: reboot?
docta_vMathman: hey there.. so any insight you could offer me on this problem would be appreciated
i have two similar systems connected to identical tape drives
one is working fine and i'm trying to setup the other one
on both systems /dev/sg0 is linked to /dev/changer
and /dev/nst0 is linked to /dev/tape
on the non-working system i was able to run amlabel to label all the tapes successfully
and i can run mtx unload, mtx load, etc.
but ammt -t /dev/nst0 status returns input/output error
so /dev/nst0 isn't working for some reason
Mathmanhmm, isn't that n junk no rewind? st0 should be /dev/tape and nst0 would be nrtape or some nonsense
one sec though, let me make sure...
docta_vyea you're right
no-rewind tape
Evolutionoverseer: is anything else using audio?
vmware, xmms, etc?
Mathmanyeah, tape should point to st0, and nrtape should point to nst0
docta_vsame error with ammt using st0
Mathmancan you do tar or anything with st0? is it just amanda giving you errors? permissions maybe?
docta_veven when i run as root i get the error
permissions look ok though
identical to the other system
have not tried to directly write to the device
Evolutiondocta_v: selinux?
Mathmanwhat's dmesg spitting out?
docta_vhmm not sure if i'm using selinux
st0: Failed to read 64512 byte block with 32768 byte transfer.
Mathmanmaybe you have a bad tape? dd or tar or anything like that work?
or maybe a bad tape drive? try swapping tape drives
docta_vit should still return status right?
