dmckee's answer works perfectly well. $ yum list installed also works. No special privileges required.

My way to improve DNS performance: Run namebench to find the fastest DNS provider for you. Done. To my knowledge, there is no magic, local configuration to improve the speed of DNS queries. But I'm hardly an expert on the topic.

Long ago I would have just used $ rpm -qa and possibly piped it through more. Looks like is still works.

In GNOME 2.6, the Nautilus file manager uses "Spatial" file management mode by default. What you are looking for is the "Browser" mode. Go to Edit → Preferences, click the Behaviour tab, and enable the Always open in browser windows option. (As for "like in Windows" – Windows 95 used spatial mode by default too.)

This will make things worse in every case but the case where your first nameserver itself fails. Here's an example of how it makes thing worse: Say you're trying to resolve a site whose primary nameserver is slow or broken. Normally this happens. You try your first nameserver. It tries the site's primary nameserver. The primary times out. Your first ...

To add a repository you need to add the key for the repository then install the repository. For this example I will use the El Repo since it has the commands you need to run: http://elrepo.org/tiki/tiki-index.php First you need to import the key using rpm --import: rpm --import http://elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org Then you run rpm with the -Uvh ...

nope, it is not usual to store the output of every program you run. you could activate some paranoid logging and spam your disc, but that is not the usual behavior. so, for your case right now: nope.

It would be depending on the terminal emulation you are running, and the log settings you are using. By default, all terminal emulations I know discard logged output once they are closed. So, unless you enabled persistent logging beforehand (in which case you would also know where the logging is done to), the output is lost.

Press CtrlAltL. This is configurable in Keyboard Shortcuts.

It sounds like you are getting the standard message for an unknown host. As you have removed the keys from the known hosts file this is expected. If you accept the key, then you should not be prompted on future connections to the same host. If ssh is encrypting the address, SSH keeps two keys, one by IP and the other by name. Try removing the IP ...

rpm -qa --last >~/RPMS_by_Install_Date this will also give you a list of when they were installed as well ... the file will be made in your home dir.

Update your version of rpmforge.

Personally I'd go with yum groupinstall 'X Software Development'

Not directly. You need to be running a 64-bit kernel to run 64-bit apps. You may be able to do it via virtualisation though. VMware supports running 64 bit VMs on a 32 bit host if the CPU(s) have support for the required features (not all 64-bit processors do), and I presume some other virtualisation platforms can do this too. You could try install a 64-bit ...

My guess is that it's an internal connection through some TTY virtualisation, such as screen It could be screen running on pts/1 with a single virtuan tty inside it (S.0 - screen window 0) connected to pts/6 Screen is very useful for running things that take a long time - you can detatch it from the controlling terminal and close your session and the ...

What happens if you chown apache /dev/loop0 then use losetup as the apache user to set up the loopback device. You should then be able to mount /dev/loop0 as root. In response to the updated question: A quick Google suggests you should be able to get around it by increasing the amount of memory you, as a normal user, can lock. As only root can do this, ...

It is possible if you use an emulator like QEMU with X86_64 support. after installing it you should use qemu-system-x86_64 command to run your executable

Yes, put it in /etc/fstab, like so: /dev/rootvg/swap2 none swap sw 0 0

That can't really be fixed, unless it's a network issue (try opening the URL in a browser). Pass --disablerepo=adobe-linux-i386 to yum to disable the repo temporarily.

Installing a newer major version of EL over an older is not supported, even if possible. I highly recommend you backup your existing system and install fresh.

A not so easy way (because it involves you to learn to work with new software) is to use GNU Screen. Inside screen use Ctrl+Esc to enter copy/scrollback mode. Once there you do have search capabilities with / and ? for vi like search and Ctrl+a+s and Ctrl+r for emacs like search. Once you put the cursor in the place you want to start copying hit space and ...

First of all if you don't have a core dumped on your disk is because often by default the core size is limited to 0 byte, thus core are not dumped. To check this and correct it, simply perform this in your shell just before running your program (in the same shell): ulimit -c ulimit -c unlimited The first command will give you the limit size for core ...

And, the piece I was missing is on the client side. In RHEL5, I need to set DHCP_HOSTNAME to the host's short name for the dhclient to pass to the dhcpd daemon. (Before I saw that text that specifies the short name, I tried with the FQDN. Now, I'll have to restart the DNS server to delete an accidental host.1.example.com.1.example.com, due to my dhcpd ...

If you wish to use short hostnames for hosts outside the domains you control, it is indeed your responsibility to update resolv.conf for those search strings. There is nothing anyone outside your domain can do to make it work otherwise. As for how many domain you can expect to put into the search string - that's a question only you can answer as it is ...

You have a couple of options. Go to the top of the text (mouse or Shift Home) and select all the text with the mouse, then copy it. When you open the terminal type script xxx, all the contents will be stored in a file xxx which you can search.

Change the URL for the source of the file resource from puppet://puppet/modules/sys-status/sys-status.rb to puppet:///modules/sys-status/sys-status.rb. It tries to get it from a puppet server named 'puppet', which it cannot connect to. Removing it will make it fetch the file from the master it's connecting to. Ger

Use the deplist command to list a package dependencies: yum deplist <package> 2. Or use the repoquery tool from the yum-utils package: repoquery --requires <package> Yum man page: http://linux.die.net/man/8/yum Repoquery man page: http://linux.die.net/man/1/repoquery

RPMfind is going to be your best bet looking for RPMs. Make sure you get the -devel versions as well as the main package, as the compiler will be looking for the headers and/or libraries that come in those packages. They happen to have RPMs for Python 2.6.8 on i586 and x86_64 platforms, originally built for OpenSUSE, but potentially useful for you. As far ...

Have you tried running it from the command line? Open your favorite terminal program, authenticate as root (if you haven't already), then enter the following (the # shouldn't be typed, it's just a placeholder for the prompt): # cd /root # chmod +x postgresql-9.1.4-1-linux-x64.run # postgresql-9.1.4-1-linux-x64.run EDIT You can google the error for ...

This inversion has just happened to me, but I found no answers on the internet. It ended up resulting that I had vim-eaten the line in my custom rc.lua where it stated modkey = "Mod4" and not noticed it. Once I restored this line my awesome is doing awesome again.
