When trying to add a Windows 2003 server to a 2000 domain, adprep would fail with this error: F:I386>adprep /forestPrep ADPREP WARNING: Before running adprep, all Windows 2000 domain controllers in the forest should be upgraded to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with QFE 265089, or to Windows 2000 SP2 (or later). QFE 265089 (included in Windows 2000 SP2 and later) is required to prevent poten tial domain controller corruption.

Update (2 Dec 2005): kiosk extension is broken, I'm now using a hacked browser.jar (version 1.0.7), I made a few changes to xinitrc-common as well Simple kiosk implementation, not entirely thorough, but enough for our purposes. Machine boots and gdm logs into a user without a password, firefox starts fullscreen and opens our homepage. Simple to implement.

Make a backup and set the security context:

[root@surrey policy]# mv /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18 /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18.orig
[root@surrey policy]# cp new/policy.18 /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/
[root@surrey policy]# chcon system_u:object_r:policy_config_t /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18
[root@surrey policy]# /usr/sbin/setfiles -q -c /etc/selinux/targeted/policy/policy.18
/etc/selinux/targeted/contexts/files/file_contexts
[root@surrey policy]# load_policy /etc/selinu

Symptom:

[user@surrey ~]: gnome-volume-manager ** (gnome-volume-manager:10207): WARNING **: manager.c/912: failed to initialize HAL!

Generate policy rules using audit2allow

[root@surrey ~]# audit2allow -i /var/log/messages allow initrc_t unconfined_t:dbus send_msg; allow unconfined_t initrc_t:dbus { acquire_svc send_msg };

Install policy source rpm

[root@surrey ~]# yum install selinux-policy-targeted-sources

Add local rules to local.te

[root@surrey ~]# pushd /etc/selinux/tar

Using unicode fonts is the easiest way to properly display hindi, arabic, hebrew and other non latin languages. We install the unicode fonts in a local directory and then tell fontconfig to look in that directory. Edit /etc/fonts/local.conf


/usr/ias/share/fonts/fc
Then tell fontconfig to rehash it's tables
[root@host] # fc-cache
Check that your new font is there
[root@host] # fc-list |grep

After modifying gdm.conf we noticed that Xnewt would not start properly on occassion. Xnewt was not ignoring the vt[0-9] command line option sent to X to specify a virtual console on which to run. We removed this from the command line sent to Xnewt and renamed Xnewt to Xnewt.sun
pushd /usr/X11R6/bin
mv Xnewt Xnewt.sun
echo Xnewt
#!/bin/sh

XFIX=`echo $@ |sed -e's/vt[0-9]*//'`
echo `date`: ARGS=$@ XFIX=$XFIX >>/var/log/Xnewt

exec Xnewt.sun $XFIX -fp unix/:7100
EOF
chmod 755 Xnewt
popd
