RPM can be check for the list of dependencies, You can finding out what dependencies a rpm file has i.e. it will tell you what you need to install package with following command:

rpm -qpR {.rpm-file}
rpm -qR {package-name}

It will print list of dependencies on screen (output):

However RPM has in build mechanism to tell you about dependencies. Just try to install package and it will give you list of dependencies.

# rpm -ivh <your-rpm>.rpm


error: Failed dependencies:

.rpm file: File with .RPM extension. Typically this file is not installed. It may be on CD or you just downloaded from Internet.
package-name: It is installed RPM file.

You can solve dependencies problem by installing each individual package(s). If you are using Red hat Linux then you can try this tip

I'm having an issue getting a C6.6 install to work on a 3 TB dual hard drive system, raid 0. I'm hoping that someone here can help.

So, I install as normal, but then reboot, and it comes to a grub prompt. Going into the system via Linux rescue, I see that most of the files dealing with the kernel haven't been installed.

I asked the maker of the server and he said that they have noticed this happen recently. A solution is to put the kernel files on a thumb drive, and then point the OS to look for them there.

I have yet to try it, but is there a better way to deal with this issue that anyone else has done?

I'm planning to use CentOS 6.x on a handful of LAN servers. So far I've been using Slackware64 14.0 and 14.1 for the job.

I wonder what's the orthodox/recommended way of configuring and iptables firewall with CentOS. I understand there's the system-config-securitylevel-tui NCurses interface which allows defining a basic set of rules. But what about the handful of more advanced rules I have to configure?

Here's an example of an /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall script that I might use with Slackware. It contains mostly basic rules, and a couple of more advanced rules, one to limit SSH access, the other one to redirect HTTP traffic to Squid.

If I want to copy my actual firewall configuration to CentOS, what would be the recommended way? I started from a bare bones minimal CentOS 6.5 installation, so system-config-securitylevel-tui is not even installed.
Is it a good idea to try to configure /etc/sysconfig/iptables by hand? What do you suggest?

I googled to see how I might restart the network interface in CentOS. I initially tried before googling:

sudo service network restart

I noticed that only the loopback interface was restarted. To confirm this I did:

service network stop

and then did


and the loopback info was gone. I then found ifconfig eth0 up/down and tried those and that did what I is was looking for. Why doesn't "service network restart" restart all interfaces?
