Re: When will the CentOS 7.5 release?

I ran yum update last night (23:00 BST) and got 1875 updates, so yes. One hiccup though, wine-core (from EPEL) threw a wobbly, IIRC (I'm at work now) it insisted on a minor version of .10 from one library, and the minor version is upped to .15 by the upgrade. I simply removed wine, but this may not ...

Re: java command in centos 7

You need openjdk-headless which will install it and set up /usr/bin/java as a link into /etc/alternatives which goes to the actual binary.

Re: new user acl questions

Good catch, mea culpa . :oops: In my (shaky) defence I wrote it, then checked the man page, and changed it without engaging my brain first. What it says: "execute (or search for directories) (x)", what I saw: "search in directories". The basic issue remains though, check that the...

Re: new user acl questions

Do they have read access to outer directories? See chmod(1) . For example, to access /home/someone/test/ they need r-- --x access to /home/ and /home/someone/ . They can then find /home/someone/test/ which can have r-x or rwx as appropriate. Remember that to search a directory (eg use ls ) y...

Re: Default Audit

In that case you may want to use /usr/share/doc/audit-2.4.5/capp.rules . Assuming you have a /etc/audit/rules.d directory do: # cd /etc/audit/rules.d # cp /usr/share/doc/audit-2.4.5/capp.rules . # augenrules - check it, and if you are happy # service auditd restart Since this is the C6 forum, I'm as...

Re: Default Audit

Use:

Code: Select all

# aureport -ts today
then ausearch on any events of interest. It mostly seems to be things like iptables which are explicitly asking auditd to record the event.

Re: the requested url was not found on this server

@ mervgh - I think the OP has that covered since he can access the machine using the FQDN. (BTW, it's not clear if the name is an alias, in which case it would be the CNAME, not A RR that needed checking.) The problem in this case though is that the browser notices a difference and it doesn't use DN...

Re: the requested url was not found on this server

You can use alternative names for a particular service, but I've not tried with literal IP addresses. The tail end of my http.conf for one machine looks like: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName XXXXXXX.XXX.XXXX.XXXXXXXXXXX.XXX ServerAlias XXXXXXX.cluster ServerAlias XXXXXXX DocumentRoot "/srv/www/ht...

Re: Epson network printer, filter problem?

You can print OpenOffice files directly to the default printer as follows:

Code: Select all

$ soffice -p --headless <filename>
If soffice doesn't work you may need ooffice instead.
