CentOS 13 Comments

Hi. I am triying to set up CentOS 5 on an Acer AXC 603G UW13. The install turn off my USB keyboard between /sbin/loader and the media check prompt screen.

What I can do to get the install working with the USB keyboard?

Thanks.

    Simple question #1: why on earth are you installing CentOS 5 – it’s about to run out of support. Why not 6, at least, if not 7?

  • I have upgraded a client’s main server, everything worked well until the Internet got an outage. Printers stoped working without explanation. I have not tested 7, but 6 is off table because of that incident.

    That’s very odd. We have well over 170 servers and workstations, the vast majority on CentOS 6, as is my own workstation at home, and both here at work, and at home, we/I have occasionally had connection to the outside world issue (admittedly, not for very long), and no printer problems at all.

  • The printing problem sounds like a configuration issue. Without knowing more, it seems likely DNS (or more generally, hostname lookup) related.

  • Mark, it may depend on how he set up printing. If it is CUPS and it can not connect to LPD or IPP downstream, then that particular queue will be stopped. So, one may need to restart queues after networks outage. The most robust way I know is to have CUPS connect jetdirect (9100). No matter whether there is outage or not, the queue is not stopped… So, it well could be for him to go carefully through configuration in the first place, and figure out what in particular happens due to network outage. Requires some actual sysadmin work ;-)

  • It’ll do whatever you tell cups to do.

    ErrorPolicy retry-job/stop-printer/abort-job

    But none of that should apply when the printer and cups server can see each other on the network and are behaving (along with normal services like DNS), irrespective of the state of the network upstream.

  • I usually have a policy to abort the job. This setting, however, still does not prevent queue stopped if queue talks LPD or IPP downstream, and there is network problem (i.e. it can not reach downstream device). The queue isn’t stopped _only_ if it talks JetDirect (port 9100 or raw is the synonym) downstream. No temporary network problems lead to queue stopped in this last case.

    Just my observation.
