  1. From syslog ay 4 11:34:01 localhost rc-scripts: Failed to start UPS drivers! May 4 11:34:01 localhost rc-scripts: ERROR: cannot start upsd as upsdrv could not start From messages May 4 12:03:33 localhost upsmon[17508]: Startup successful May 4 12:03:33 localhost upsd[17315]: Connection from May 4 12:03:38 localhost upsmon[17509]: Communications with UPS server@localhost lost May 4 12:03:38 localhost wall[17518]: wall: user root broadcasted 1 lines (47 chars) May 4 12:03:43 localhost upsmon[17509]: UPS server@localhost is unavailable May 4 12:03:43 localhost wall[17521]: wall: user root broadcasted 1 lines (37 chars) May 4 12:04:18 localhost upsd[17315]: Connection from May 4 12:04:18 localhost upsd[17315]: Client on logged out
  2. No, none. I did get rid of the port already in use. Seems another installs of upsd was running so I killed it.
  3. I don't have either one of those files now. I deleted them. Removed nuts and then reinstalled and tried to restart. It should have generated new files but it didn't.
  4. Well I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and now I get * Starting upsd ... Network UPS Tools upsd 2.0.5 Can't bind TCP port number 3493: Address already in use *sigh*
  5. Thanks but I already tried that and it didn't work. Which is why I'm trying nut.
  6. I tried renaming it and it didn't work. It failed with an error message I can't remember.
  7. I'm trying to get my ups configured using nuts. But I'm getting the following errors: localhost init.d # /etc/init.d/upsd restart * Stopping upsd ... [ ok ] * Starting upsd ... [ !! ] localhost init.d # /etc/init.d/upsdrv restart * Stopping UPS drivers ... Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.0.5 Can't open /var/lib/nut/belkinunv-Belkin-ups.pid: No such file or directory * Failed to stop UPS drivers! In /var/lib/nut I have belkinunv-myups.pid I've been googling for two days. If you have any ideas I'd appreciate it!
  8. I'm trying to install the linux drivers for my Belkin UPS and I get the following: localhost Bulldog_v2_Linux # sh setup_console.bin No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH environment variable. You must install a VM prior to running this program. I have blackdown-jre installed and I know it works. My path to java-vm is /opt/blackdown-jre- and java_vm is there. I tried adding it to my .bashrc but that didn't work. Any suggestions?
  9. I have a fully working server on my gentoo box. Currently I have a test board on localhost but I want one that I can access online. I have registered the domain name vampyregeek.org (of course!) and I know it takes several days before I can use it but I need to know how to set it up. I have emerged bind. I know I need to configured named.conf and also I have db.vampyregeek.org from when someone tried to help me before. I'll attach it. The ip address listed is no longer good which is why I haven't commented it out. Thanks for any help! Edit: okay I can't attach it so I'll post it here. $TTL 3h vampyregeek.org. IN SOA vampyregeek.org. barbara.vampyregeek.org. ( 2 3h 1h 1w 1h ) vampyregeek.org. IN NS ns1.vampyregeek.org. vampyregeek.org. IN NS ns1.zorq.net. ; ;Host Addresses ; vampyregeek.org.

And please don't tell me to just use a hosting company. What's the fun in that?
  10. From Mandriva Errata Broken pam configuration (commands such as su not working) See also Bug #29719 and pam_stack in the release notes. After updating to Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring from Mandriva Linux 2006 or from an installation of Mandriva Linux 2007 which was itself updated from Mandriva Linux 2006, some pam configuration files may no longer be valid. This might result in the su and kdesu commands not working. If some configuration files in the /etc/pam.d directory still contain references to the pam_stack module, they should be migrated, as explained in the /usr/share/doc/pam- file. If the affected configuration files do not contain configuration changes made by the system administrator, they can simply be restored from the .rpmnew files in the same directory. For example, to make the su command work again, in the /etc/pam.d directory, replace the content of the su file with the content of the su.rpmnew file: cp -vf /etc/pam.d/su /etc/pam.d/su_bak;cp -vf /etc/pam.d/su.rpmnew /etc/pam.d/su And you can replace grub with lilo by going into MCC once you get your root priveleges back. It's under bootloader but I'm not sure where since I'm not in Mandriva atm. HTH
  11. If you do an upgrade you should be okay but upgrades aren't generally advised because of potential problems. If you do a new install then you will have to configure it again.
  12. I've done some googling for you and checked all my linux distros. The only one that has anything like that is Gentoo which has an emerge log. This tells me when I installed my system and I can search for every program that I've installed or upgraded. I can't find anything else like that with the other systems. Sorry, maybe a Fedora user can help.
  13. Honestly I haven't tried anymore upgrading so I don't know.
  14. The only problem I had with 2007.1 was all the bad package signatures on the updates. My main complaint with 2006 and 2007 was that I couldn't have a reliable wireless network with my unsupported Broadcom card using ndiswrapper. I have Debian installed on that computer now and I'm not going to install Mandriva over that to see if wireless works now. That is really my only reason for drifting away from Mandriva on the laptop.
  15. Thanks, I posted on the arch forum and they told me how to fix it.
  16. I'm still impresed with Debian Etch. I'm still having some occassional wireless issues but so far I've been able to get it working again. I don't think anything will ever replace gentoo but if the day does come then it will be Debian.
  17. What I don't understand is why there are no man pages for pacman installed? It should have been installed with the base system. Do I have to manually intall them via pacman?
  18. Marked as solved. I'm not sure iphitus. Like I said when I went searching after the base install I had a hard time finding what to do next. Maybe it's scattered around and needs to be in one place? There are a lot of things that I know have to be done after a base install because of Gentoo installs. So I went looking for how to do specific things.
  19. Thanks but I already have X and KDE installed and working and I have kdm starting at boot.
  20. Ok, my arch comments. The initial install with the cd was very easy. I didn't need any documentation because it was just like installing most distros. To a point. Of course this installation only brings you to runlevel 3 with no X. Here is where I ran into problems trying to find documentation about what to do after this. I needed to know commands. I needed to know what steps I had to take next and I had a hard time finding documentation. And when you google Arch you get very few hits. At least in my experience. So although Arch seems like a nice distro at this point I would say it's biggest failing is good documentation. Maybe I'm too spoiled by Gentoo where there are tons of wikis. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places. But I am going to finish the steps I need to take today to get it all upgraded to testing and I've signed up for the mailing list so I hope I can contribute someway.
  21. Ok, problems all solved. I talked to iphitus in the irc and we worked it out. I was able to successfully log into arch and everything works so far.
