|range||Is that hmmm.com, hmmm.net or hmmm.org?|
ohgeeez, this is #centos, your question is offtopic, and the ops here are pretty strict on that. its a generic DNS question, not centos specific at all.
|peerce||range; si that an april fools joke?!?|
|range||peerce: No idea. I found that strange also.|
But if we're dealing with 60% DNS issues here anyway :)
|peerce||sigh, work dumped their bind-on-solaris standard in favor of using "infoblox" appliance DNS/DHCP servers for inhouse use, blah.|
|crackintosh||does anyone know what button to press at boot on old dell computers that allows you to select which device to boot from? my cdrom drive is the first priority but the computer never attempts to read from it.|
|peerzzzzz||usually the dell BIOS reports there's a bootable CD in the drive, and tells you what key to press to boot from it|
i don't recall which key they use for that. f2 or f12 or something
|crackintosh||this particular computer doesnt give me the option of f12 :-/ I have a feeling something else might be the problem if the disc isnt booting.|
oh well. thanks.
|gushi||Hey all -- I'm having a little trouble with grub and serial consoles -- is there a way to know for-sure if grub is compiled with serial support?|
I get my actual KERNEL messages out my serial port.
Also, does anyone know if grub somehow checks to see if DTR/DSR are being asserted?
|Dyson||gushi: grub as shipped with centos 4 is compiled with support for serial lines|
gushi: however, I have no idea about the DTR/DSR handling
gushi: to use the serial line in grub you have to use the serial *and* the terminal directive in menu.lst
|gushi||Hrmm, I am thinking it could be an oddity with the shell adapter I am using.|
I've done it in grub.conf
|Dyson||yeah, grub.conf is a symlink to menu.lst :)|
|gushi||Does it matter which line is first?|
|Dyson||I use that stuff on "real" serial connections (i.e. with cable) and with the supermicro service-boards without issues|
|gushi||I have the terminal line first.|
|Dyson||and I believe you have to put the serial line in front of that|
|gushi||which I think may be a problem depending how it's parsed.|
|Dyson||yeah, it is more or less a script|
and configuring the line before you actually use it seems reasonable :)
serial --unit=1 --speed=19200 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1
terminal --timeout=10 serial console
for my supermicro service-boards
|gushi||Yup, that was it.|
Lines were in the wrong order.
