Re: Permenantly setting permissions for /dev/ttyUSB*

As this was the first thing that came up in Google when I tried looking for an answer, I'm posting my eventual solution for anybody who come across these as well despite being well over a year late. :-) Add rule file in /etc/udev/rules.d I used 71-persistent-usb.rules following the naming convention...

Request for working Xorg.conf for ATI 4xxx systems

I just set up a new CentOS 5.5 system (using the 5.5 DVD, yum updated all packages to latest) which unfortunately due to various issues and most critically availability, has an ATI-4350. The install went OK but X does not detect the card properly so it's using the slow VESA driver. I followed the in...

Restoring Centos 5 machine from LVM failure

Background ======== This machine started experiencing a high load mostly in WA% and apparently SMB froze. Trying to kill -9 without any results, I rebooted the machine... and it failed to boot. A Hitachi 1TB drive appeared to be the cause. On a cold boot, it will not be detected and GRUB will start,...

Help setting up external drive via Firewire

I got a WD 1TB My Book with eSATA/USB/Firewire400 connectivity. USB 2.0 works fine out of the box but is rather slow, Nautilus predicts about 1+ hour to fully backup just one day's worth of data or about 100GB. So I was hoping Firewire would be faster, which is why we got the version with all 3 inte...

Server SMTP attacks and compromised iptables?

I'm probably reading too much into this but for about two weeks now my daily log has increased by almost 10 times. After running through a couple of days of logs with a script, it seems that I'm getting flooded on SMTP from this IP 219.64.114.52 which belongs to VSNL and appears to be statically ass...

Redirecting root emails

Not quite sure which category does this fall into. I'm trying to redirect locally generate mails for root to an external email account so that it's easier for me to check logwatch and other alerts like when a cron job fails. I found instructions that say I could do this by editing /etc/alias and add...
