  1. I recently just setup the Mandrake flavor of Terminal server in hope of using it with various workstations in the house as an aternative to VNC or dual boot. I setup the server based on all of the mandrake/(ugh mandriva) defaults. I went on and made a boot CD with the proper network card image (3c90x) and The workstation boots just fine from the cd and the first request goes out to dhcpd, dhcpd responds and gives it the proper IP address and hands the client the kernel image to boot from next. The image loads and starts doing its thing and then goes back and asks for a dhcp asignment from the server. (which is what its supposed to do) and this is where the problem begins. At this point the client says something along the following: warning, m debug, attempting to discover and goes through the process of trying to get its ip about 6 times and then fails out. I checked the server logs for the server as the client was booting and i get the following. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
  2. How are you sending the job? What distro? What version of cups? Was it an RPM install or did you build from source? What printer? Does the printer appear in printers.conf in the cups directory? Have you tried the cups WWW admin tool to print a test page? Did you look at the cups output in the logfiles /var/log/cups/ if your using recent mandrake... TRY this to get a better grasp of the problem adjust the path to your system tail -f -n50 /var/log/cups/yourerrorfilenamegoeshere When debugging anything most people totally forget to look at the log files, and then even more dont turn on debugging if available when they do have problems and are looking at the logfiles. Cups if nothing else is REALLY good at putting out information about what is going on. If you look in the cupsd.conf as I recall there is a place to define the logfile to debug mode so that alot more output is given. Poke around there and you will probably find out if its a CUPS error or a Distro error or a hardware error. Isaac P.S. sorry for all the questions but its better to put out all the information right up front then if nobody answers its because nobody knows instead of nobody answering due to a lack of information.
  3. /etc/httpd/conf/httpd2.conf is indeed the file in use by apache2. When in doubt put something that will for sure cause an error such as loading the same module 2 times. (I always put some garbage on first line such as "QWERTY" restart apache vi service httpd restart or your fav method and if you get an error or warning referencing your horrid error in the config file. If you dont get any type of error your probably in the wrong file.
  4. I went and looked for the same general reference from step #11 and found the following: This was found in /etc/httpd/conf.d/70_mod_php5.conf and was referenced by httpd2.conf <IfDefine HAVE_PHP5> <IfModule !mod_php5.c> LoadModule php5_module extramodules/mod_php5.so </IfModule> </IfDefine> <IfModule mod_php5.c> PHPINIDir /etc </IfModule> <IfModule mod_mime.c> AddType application/x-httpd-php .php AddType application/x-httpd-php .php3 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php4 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php5 AddType application/x-httpd-php .phtml AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps </IfModule> So just for fun i added : LoadModule php5_module extramodules/mod_php5.so directly into httpd2.conf and received the following error: so php5 is loading. I'm just getting the file offered to me as a downloadable file instead of it being executed. Further info is as follows. The web server loads. The generic mandrake welcome page loads when viewing http://localhost so images and html pages work fine. Only php seems to be dead in the water. My entire apache and php5 package list is below. If more information is needed please let me know. I'm not an expert but im getting there. :-)
  5. Under the versions below with a fresh install of apache2 and mod_php5 I'm unable to get php files to load properly. They are offfered to the browser as downloadable files. Mandrake 10.1 apache2-2.0.50-7.2.101mdk apache2-mod_php5 Has anybody else run into this problem and a possible fix for it?

    did you make sure your pci information is correct as per the tutorial found here on the forums? The tutorial I'm referencing is here : http://mandrakeusers.org/index.php?showtopic=14972&hl= And the part most people seem to be missing is where the references to lspci and lspci -n are talked about. if the information was just copied from that tutorial or some other tutorial the card will probably not work as your info will be different. does this help ?
  7. Well i got the default smp kernel to boot finally (wipe and reinstall and other crap out of the way) with the options you specified and this is the new dmesg output I think ive explored every option out there at this point......
  8. UPDATE I've been doing alot of reading over on the dell forums and other various smp threads on diff forums and ive appended my kernel boot to the following... and after updating lilo I rebooted the system to this kernel and got the following output on dmesg as root. any help would be greatly appreciated.
  9. I recently installed MDK 10.0 official on my inspiron 5150 which has a P4 chip onboard and it was my understanding to use the smp kernel for multiproccessor support. Intel Mobile IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® 4 CPU 3.20GHz Apon booting the pc i get only so far into the boot phase and the computer stops doing anything. If I boot to a non smp kernel i get into the OS. a COPY of my dmesg shown below the stop always occurs right after the message NET: Registered protocol family 2
  10. actually the kde one seems to be inop. I am using Gnome sorry for the lack of detail it was an oversight.
  11. I've been looking for a slide show to put in place for my screensaver on mandrake 10. Any suggestions??? :unsure: [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  12. So here I am with mandrake 10 and apache2. Out of the box it works great but the moment I wandered into /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts.conf things have gone to crap. So after experiencing hours of 403 not allowed errors on a vhost that point to /home/isaac/website1_public_html/ I return to this forum to read that alot of other people have had the same if not similar problems. So I go back and try all of the advice about vhosts and apahe2 and none of it seems to work. What would be nice is if somebody could point me to a start to finish solution for this mess as I know that everywhere else but in mandrake advx land the vhosts settings I've used work just fine. Anybody got a good url?? P.S. at this point I've removed EVERYTHING related to apache from the server to include the config files so I can start with a clean slate.
  13. I recently posted a request for help on apache2 and mod_ssl certs. After a week of the nightmare i remove the apache2 system from my server installed apache1.3 and generated a self signed cert which works great for my site. :P Once this was accomplished I thought I was ready for a CA signed cert and I went through my employer to get one for my server. I generated the required csr, & key forms and I tucked my copy away carefully. Apon recpt of the proper cert I installed it in the proper location (default vitual host in this case) and proceded to observ apache start and then die with no known error messages. http-perl continues to run and will even generate status returns when apachectl status is given at the prompt. The error messages that are showing up in the log files are as follows: [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [info] Server: Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.28, Interface: mod_ssl/2.8.15, Library: OpenSSL/0.9.7b [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [info] Init: 1st startup round (still not detached) [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [info] Init: Initializing OpenSSL library [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [info] Init: Loading certificate & private key of SSL-aware server www.myhost.com:443 [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [error] Init: Unable to read server certificate from file /etc/ssl/apache/server.crt (OpenSSL library error follows) ==> /var/log/httpd/error_log <== [Mon Nov 3 14:55:11 2003] [error] mod_ssl: Init: Unable to read server certificate from file /etc/ssl/apache/server.crt (OpenSSL library error follows) [Mon Nov 3 14:55:11 2003] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D0680A8:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tag [Mon Nov 3 14:55:11 2003] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D07803A:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_ITEM_EX_D2I:nested asn1 error ==> /var/log/httpd/ssl_engine_log <== [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D0680A8:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_CHECK_TLEN:wrong tag [03/Nov/2003 14:55:11 11185] [error] OpenSSL: error:0D07803A:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_ITEM_EX_D2I:nested asn1 error At this point after a week of trying to estabish a https enabled web site using mandrake apache packages I'm starting to wonder if it might just be a better idea to remove all traces of apache & mod_ssl from the system and compile everything from source. I've always liked the advx system but this is turning into a nightmare.
  14. I'm not getting any known errors. The system is setup to defaults My list of apache & ssl related packages is as follows: apache2 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-common 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-mod_cache 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-mod_disk_cache 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-mod_file_cache 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-mod_limitipconn 2.0.47_0.22-1mdk apache2-mod_mem_cache 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-mod_php 2.0.47_4.3.2-2mdk apache2-mod_ssl 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-modules 2.0.47-6mdk apache2-source 2.0.47-6mdk libopenssl0 0.9.6i-1.2.91mdk libopenssl0.9.7 0.9.7b-4.1.92mdk libopenssl0.9.7-devel 0.9.7b-4.1.92mdk openssl 0.9.7b-4.1.92mdk perl-Net_SSLeay 1.25-1mdk stunnel 4.04-4mdk The problems I seem to be encountering revolve around how https requests are handled. Any request to localhost from the console by calling "links https://localhost " work just fine However any call to the machine from another location fails with no apprent response at all. I ran tail -f /var/log/httpd/*.log and watched for any clues that might have helps but I'm not getting anything of any use. The only thing of notice is that i see the following message on the vhost log for the domain in question - - [26/Oct/2003:19:02:00 +0000] "x80Lx01x03" 200 12969 "-" "-" but im not sure if its related to the https settings or not. Now then if I go and edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/41_mod_ssl.default-vhost.conf and edit the default settings for the <VirtualHost _default_:443> and change it to <VirtualHost mydomainname.com:443> and the server name from ServerName default:443 to ServerName myname.com:443 https suddenly works however http requests no longer work. I've spent 4 days now reading the apache2 configuration manual and it appears im doing all the basic stuff right. I just am missing something and at this point im about to grab a copy of apache 1.3 and just build from source and pitch the mandrake rpms to the curb....
  15. Are there any good tutorials for apache2 on mandrake 9.2 and https I'm having a horrid time getting vhosts to work in https mode. If the site works in https mode then normal http doesnt work and vicea versa.....
