Yes, RHEL is based on Fedora. See this Fedora Wiki article: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux Red Hat Enterprise Linux (or RHEL) is a commercially supported derivative of Fedora tailored to meet the requirements of enterprise customers. It is a commercial product from Red Hat which also sponsors Fedora as a community project. ...

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.

You can certainly make this switch. Basically you, more or less, point your installation to CentOS repositories and continue on your merry way. You'll have one major problem, though, in that all the CentOS repos seem to have their 5.x packages at release 5.9. There appears, at a quick glance, to be no 5.5 specific repos any longer. I did this on a web farm ...

I believe the K implies that when entering run-level 3, it is shutting down sshd Yes. K is for Kill. This is old SystemV style startup. The base scripts are all in init.d, and there are various symlinks with specific naming conventions (S00..., K99...) in the rc?.d directories where they're actually run from. When you change runlevels, say from 1 to ...

It will boot and continue working normally, but will not receive any updates, which is quite dangerous. If you want/need an OS based on the RHEL source code, consider CentOS or Scientific Linux.

Anyone on your system, including anyone who can exploit any server on your system, can promote any user to root. This is basically removing security.

It all started with Red Hat that was the base start and the first widely-available beta release of Red Hat Linux was on october 31 1994 with version number RHL 0.9. On september 25 2003 they started the Fedora project as the developer distro (you are right, also for RHL). So Red Hat became the enterprise distro where Fedora is still real open-source and top ...

Just use DD, it's a command line program included on most Linux distros. This method works for many distros, not just Ubuntu. dd if=/ubuntu.iso of=/dev/sdb replace sdb with usb drive letter (eg: sdb, sdc, sdd, sde, etc).

You're supposed to create the file yourself. It's in the tutorial, where it says: cat > /etc/ntp.conf << "EOF" # Asia server 0.asia.pool.ntp.org # Australia server 0.oceania.pool.ntp.org # Europe server 0.europe.pool.ntp.org # North America server 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org # South America server 2.south-america.pool.ntp.org driftfile ...

chkconfig controls whether the service should start when your computer boots, while service lets you manage (start, stop, query status) the service. So: # service httpd stop (notice that the option provided is stop and not off) stops the httpd service but won't prevent httpd from starting upon reboot, while # chkconfig httpd off disables httpd so that ...

Fedora does not correspond directly to RHEL or CentOS; RHEL is built from pieces of Fedora, but not the whole thing. The latest RHEL and CentOS versions are directly comparable, except for prerelease versions. Older versions of RHEL have a "u" to indicate the update release where CentOS has a "." to indicate the minor version. Also note that delays in ...

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 ...

There is nothing that says if this is the Intel compiler or the default gcc compiler. You quoted gcc version 4.1.2 Which suggests to me it is gcc not Intel aren't too clear about the path where they have installed it Try locate cc

You are using OpenSSH 5.3; %h was only introduced in OpenSSH 5.6: Changes since OpenSSH 5.5 ========================= * Expand %h to the hostname in ssh_config Hostname options. While this sounds useless, it is actually handy for working with unqualified hostnames: Host *.* Hostname %h Host * Hostname %h.example.org

In bash, 2> /dev/null would actually work, as long as you add it as part of the find command itself, i.e., before the pipe. For example, this will work: find -type f -printf "%s %p\n" 2> /dev/null | sort -nr | head -n 20 With tcsh, there's no straightforward way to do the same, but man tcsh mentions a workaround: The shell cannot presently ...

The sysstat service which runs the sa binaries is not collecting disk statistics in /var/log/sa files. This is turned off by default to prevent the logs from growing large on systems with hundreds or thousands of block devices. When you run sar to report disk statistics, the Requested activities not available in file message is telling you that sa hasn't ...

The Intel C++ compiler is usually installed in /opt/intel. There's a script you have to run to set up your environment to use it, usually iccvars.sh. For the most common installation options, this should work: . /opt/intel/bin/iccvars.sh intel64 icc -v

For RHEL / Fedora, you probably want to look at PXE booting and using kickstart to install. Using a "golden image" (i.e. doing what SysPrep does) isn't really the best way of deploying new machines on RHEL / Fedora (in my opinion). It (Kickstart) lets you distribute identical images without having to take up the space for that image - and lets you update new ...

Step 1: Make sure it works with the given examples. Step 2: Make sure your fuse code doesn't have any errors in it. Including very subtle ones that may get ignored by a simple ls on a mounted fuse directory alone.

Have a look into adding the EPEL repository to your RHEL build. EPEL is Fedora packages built against RHEL http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL I have not used this repo to install wine but do currently have it installed in my Scientific Linux 6 RHEL clone. If you are not familiar with install 3rd party repositories then you may want to have a peek at the ...

There is no relation between fedora version and RHEL, Centos version. Fedora is a community project with a release in each 6 months. But RHEL and its clone Centos are enterprise-grade distributions with long release gap. CentOS is a clone of RHEL with branding/artwork etc removed from RHEL. Since the logo, artwork etc are the property of Redhat, it is not ...

The version of glibc you have installed does not satisfy the dependencies of the RPM you are trying to install. You mentioned that you are using RHEL 6.5 -- the RPM you are trying to install has "el7" in the filename (libtirpc-0.2.4-0.3.el7.x86_64.rpm) which means that it was compiled and built against RHEL 7. You can see that your system has GLIBC 2.12, ...

You can use find /tmp -type f -size +50000k -delete instead, which is clearer, simpler and more efficient.

It's all based off of Bell Labs System V Unix which was somewhere around when init and run levels were introduced. It stands for runcom or run commands. In the question of anything Unix, consult the Jargon File. There's a deep history, canonical and recorded that came before Linux :rc file: /R·C fi:l/, n. [Unix: from runcom files on the ...

It is derived from "run commands". From Unix FAQ rc (as in ".cshrc" or "/etc/rc") = "RunCom" "rc" derives from "runcom", from the MIT CTSS system, ca. 1965. 'There was a facility that would execute a bunch of commands stored in a file; it was called "runcom" for "run commands", and the file began to be called "a runcom." "rc" in Unix ...

The service command affects the currently running services. You can start and stop servers at any time as you see fit. But it does not effect the configuration that determines what are started at boot time. The other command changes that configuration. It controls what is started at boot time.

Check your MAC Address for the VM. It should be 08:00:27:98:8e:df since that is what is shown you ran ip addr. If it's anything else, you will need to set it in your ifcfg-ens192 file with the following, but replace the address with the actual. HWADDR="08:00:27:98:8e:df" I had the same issue and this solved it for me.

It is there mostly as a legacy thing. The daemon User ID/Group ID was used as an unprivileged User ID/Group ID for daemons to execute under in order to limit their access to the system. Generally daemons should now run under individual User ID/Group IDs in order to further partition daemons from one another. What it would hurt to use the daemon group ...
