Notes on Installing RHEL ES on Vinu, one of those 4 Dell Machines 6-17-2004 ================================================================= ========= I already have w3 set up as an install server (see my Copying_Install_CDs notes). 1) In order to boot from CD, I had to change the boot sequence, by hitting the F2 key at boot time to enter the Setup pages. Make boot sequence diskette, IDE CD, then disk drive. 2) Boot the RHEL AS 3 boot.iso CD that I got from my RHEL class. Select English and US keyboard. 3) For the "Installation Method", chose "HTTP". For the "Networking Device", chose the motherboard ethernet connection, "eth0 - 3Com Corporation|3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado]", as contrasted to the "eth1 - Intel Corp. ... [Ethernet Pro 100]" adapter in a slot. For "Configure TCP/IP", unselected "Use dynamic IP configuration ..." and typed in the I.P. information IP address: 10.224.88.51 Netmask: 255.255.255.0 Default gateway (IP): 10.224.88.1 Primary nameserver: 10.224.88.254 For "HTTP Setup", Web site name: w3.delphion.com Red Hat directory: linux 4) Being connected to the CKM switch, it doesn't detect the monitor type. I'll specify that later. For the "Mouse Selection", chose "Generic - 2 Button Mouse (PS/2)", not the default "Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)". Go ahead and allow "Disk Druid" to "Autopartition". I'll modify that later. Yes, "Remove all partitions on this system", and use the only drive, sda. Disk Druid's default partitioning was Device Start End Size Type Mount Point ======== ===== ==== ====== ==== =========== /dev/sda sda1 1 13 101M ext3 /boot sda2 14 1959 15264M ext3 / sda3 1960 2213 1992M swap I added the a 1000MB ext3 file system at /usr/vice/cache for AFS. The final configuration is Device Start End Size Type Mount Point ======== ===== ==== ====== ==== =========== /dev/sda sda1 1 13 101M ext3 /boot sda2 14 1832 14268M ext3 / sda3 1833 1959 996M ext3 /usr/vice/ca (sic) sda4 1960 2213 1992M Extended sda5 1960 2213 1992M swap Accepted a lot of the defaults. In particular, the two "Network Configuration" screens came up as I wanted them to; * eth0 should not use DHCP, "Activate on boot", and the right, fixed I.P. address & Netmask. * eth1 did NOT have "Activate on boot" checked. Filled in the "Secondary DNS:" on the "Miscellaneous Network Settings" screen, to 10.224.89.254 (Lisle's chiname). !!! Disabled the firewall. Set "Time Zone Selection" to "America/Los_Angeles". Took their default software selection. 5) The first screen after the install was "Video Card Configuration". Accepted the "Video Card:" they detected, "Matrox Millennium G450". The next "Monitor Configuration" screen allowed me to change the "Monitor:" from "Unprobed Monitor" to "Sony CPD-G400". The system then rebooted. 6) After the boot, configured NTP, pointing to afs1. Did not register with Red Hat Network. 7) vi /boot/grub/grub.conf to lower the timeout from 10 seconds to 3. 8) To update the system, mount jasper:/var/up2date /mnt cd /mnt rpm -import RPM* # liblaus.so.1 (in laus-libs-0.1*rpm) is needed by pam-0.75-54 and rpm -F --aid # won't install it. Why not? I dunno. Maybe 'cause it's not "suggested"? rpm -Uvh laus-libs*rpm rpm -Fv --aid *rpm cd umount /mnt 9) To install AFS, mkdir /tmp/afs cd /tmp/afs scp -p jasper@jasper:/afs/d/software/base/linux/openafs-1.2.11/* . rpm -Uvh *rpm vi /usr/vice/etc/cacheinfo and set the cache size to 95% of the number of 1K blocks of /usr/vice/cache. 95% of 1GB (my standard), is 953850. vi /usr/vice/etc/ThisCell and set the cell name to delphion.com. vi /usr/vice/etc/CellServDB remove all the existing lines, and add just these two lines, >delphion.com # Thomson-Delphion 10.224.88.241 #afs1.delphion.com To start AFS now, service afs start To allow AFS-authenticated logins, ftp's, etc, cp -p /etc/pam.d/system-auth /etc/pam.d/system-auth.Before.AFS cp -p --reply=yes system-auth /etc/pam.d/system-auth To clean up, cd rm -rf /tmp/afs To add our standard links, ln -s /afs/d/u /u ln -s /afs/d/FakeDFS /dfs
