|craigbass1976||I yum installed mysql, or tried to, but found that it was already installed. Grepped for the mysql rpm just in case, and it's there. No mysql or mysqld in /etc/init.d though, so I'm not sure how to start it. Did something change between cent4 and 5?|
|evil_steve||craigbass1976: did you install mysql or mysql-server?|
one's the client and one's the server
evil_steve, did it used to be yum install mysqld?
|evil_steve||no, I was having to do a yum install mysql-server in 4.4 AFAICR|
|craigbass1976||I must have always done it during the OS install with 4 then.|
|Evolution||it's been mysql-server for ages.|
|stormzen||I had a Centos 4.4 installation on a single CPU machine. I've upgraded to a Duo Core machine, and I'm upgrading my Centos 4.4 installation to a Centos 5 installation. Will I end up with the correct kernel to utilize both CPUs?|
stormzen: though what you're saying sounds very much like you should just reinstall.
you're upgrading machines, AND distro versions...
why not just reinstall and then restore your data?
|stormzen||Eeew... really don't want to reinstall, though... too much crap to figure out regarding security / permissions, etc.|
|Evolution||actually, there is no smp kernel anymore.. so yes.|
you would end up with the right one.
|stormzen||ah. Guess I kind of lucked out there.|
( I never got to the point where I was comfortable recovering the entire server ... just the data. ... and then I needed to upgrade the hardware. Well, as long I was upgrading the hardware, I figured I'd upgrade the software as well... bad choice, then?
There is no SMP kernel anymore? FC6 has SMP kernel... Centos 5 really doesn't?
|wolfy||stormzen: the default one is smp enabled|
|Chipdancer||wolfy: yeah, have done that in the past, but was after something a little more practical for large networks|
|wolfy||for large networks setup your own local repo|
|Chipdancer||wolfy: I'm preferably after something that doesn't require an open fileshare but don't want to mirror entire distributions|
|wolfy||download (ftp, rsync, whatever) the stuff locally|
and point all your machines to your own repo
mirror just the updates
and mount -o loop the dvd image
|Chipdancer||wolfy: already have the dvd image done like that|
|wolfy||so, what's the actual problem? just install a ftp or httpd server on one machine and make it share the /var/cache/yum dir|
if you don't want to create a real share
although I see 0 gain in this approach
|ptomter||how can I upgrade centos easily ?|
|donavan||ptomter: man yum|
|stormzen||anyone ever have the installation for Centos5 freeze on the last file?|
( when upgrading ? )
|evil_steve||stormzen: when installing, yes, when upgrading, no|
|stormzen||Ok. What did you do when it froze when installing?|
( I guess it never does it's run-once thing? )
