Review of Fedora Core 6 Installation

Filed under: Fedora — Tags: — egoleo @ 7:50 am

After wondering in the world of ubuntu(debian), i decided to get into the world of fedora core specifically core 6. I was really happy with the looks. More over with the use YUM which makes it easier in updating and installing packages.My Desktop Screenshot

*** It seems Fedora made a error with the installation disc and mixed up i586 and i686 arches. To see if your installation got the error type this in the terminal as root user :***

rpm -q --qf='%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}n' kernel
if the output says i586 then it indeed got the error and to fix this type this in the terminal :

su -c "yum install yum-utils"
yumdownloader kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686
su -c "rpm -Uvh --replacefiles --replacepkgs kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.i686.rpm"
yum update
And from this point, u can install all other stuffs

This problem occured in the web browser when i was trying to access our open web mail. One thing is that openwebmail puts users uploaded attachments in cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions. Users will normally get this error if there is no space left on the partition where cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions lives or user has exceeded his disk quota.

Solution:

To solve this, please move cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc/sessions to a larger partition. Then create a symbolic link to that new directly.

Steps as above

cd /new_place

That is change directory to the new big disk space.

mkdir sessions

Create a directory called “sessions” in this new big disk space

mkdir sessions

Create a directory directory called “sessions” this new big disk space.

chmod 770 sessions

Change the mode of the directory “sessions” which was just created.

chown 0 sessions

Change ownership of the “sessions” directory created.

chgrp mail sessions

Add sessions directory created to the mail group.

cd yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc

Change directory or move into were your openwebmail/etc is.

cp -rf sessions

Make backup of sessions directory in the “etc” to somewhere safe.

rm -rf  sessions

Delete the sessions in the yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc

ln -s /new_place/sessions  .

Still in the “yourweb_cgi-bin/openwebmail/etc” directory, create a symbolic link.
