In one sentence "Use LSI Logic as the SCSI controller in the virtual machine settings" When installing RedHat Linux 5 as a guest OS in VMware server, I kept getting a "no drives found" error in anaconda. Someone suggested I use the LSI logic driver, I mistakenly thought that meant a driver disk (dd.img), but that was not the case. The driver for the hard drive is specified when you are defining the virtual machine. Select Custom on the first page of the New Virtual Machine Wizard. Then Linux as the Guest Operating System.

When creating your own custom yum repository, it is a good idea to create your own gpg signature and sign all the rpms in that repository. That way, should someone manage to place an rpm in there, none of your systems will install that rpm.

We are working on a short piece of code, called count.c. I first copy count.c to a backup, count.c.orig and begin correcting count.c


This appears to be working fine now. I have installed srss_4.0 on our RHEL5 server. I had to install a few extra packages to get things to install:
  • dhcp
  • openldap-server
  • openmotif22
  • tftp-server

When using Internet explorer from our RHEL5 system, the font for the menu's is very small. To increase the size we put the following in our win.ini (for each affected bottle). [Desktop] MenuFontSize=14 (or MenuFontSize=18) Using 14 makes the menus far more readable, but 18 makes them a good deal more readable. One problem we still have is that the address bar in IE is still quite small. This is mentioned here

Our mailserver is a RHEL5 machine with the stock sendmail install. The stock install uses smrsh, theexamples for rt-mailgate will not work with smrsh because smrsh strips quotes ('). The fix is to use double quotes (") rt: '|rt-mailgate --queue default action correspond --url https://rt.example.com' becomes: rt: "|rt-mailgate --queue default action correspond --url https://rt.example.com"
