Re: problem with yum and proxy

If you drop to a command prompt and `cat /etc/yum.conf` then how many backslashes appear then? I don't have a system with gedit installed handy so I am unable to check what it does. My standard editor is vim. I have no idea how many backslashes there should be in the username field - I am guessing t...

Re: At Startup I see a massage that say ACPI:Invalid _TSS data for four times

This is to do with invalid ACPI data provided by your BIOS. TSS data is to do with Throttling Supported States and should tell the o/s what power saving levels the processor can utilise. My first step would be to see if there is a BIOS update available for your machine and upgrade if there is.

selinux prevent syslogd

What does your /etc/syslog.conf look like? I presume you added a line to it to specifically log to /var/log/samba? This directory is really intended to be written to by the samba processes and has an SELinux context that only allows samba to write to it. You might be better of to send your syslog ve...

Re: Disable sslv2

You should fail on all tests when connecting on port 80 surely? Did you mean 443?

Re: mysql-workbench install issue

You could ask Oracle why they only provide an RPM for RHEL6/OEL6 and not for RHEL5?

Re: Upgrade to latest version of yum?

[code]
yum update yum
[/code]

is probably more accurate but if you have the latest version already then it still won't do anything.

Re: P5QL Pro motherboard's NIC not detected with CentOS 5.5

To become root you either need to logon as the user 'root' or you need to logon as yourself then type [code] su - [/code] and then enter the root password. Or, if you have set up sudo correctly then you can use the sudo command to run whatever you want to and run it with root privileges - e.g. [code...
