centos 6' repositories against redhat 6 upstream

0 votes

Wonder how's the relationship between the centos 6's main OS/ repository and redhat 6's repositories. Let's say, Redhat 6 seperate RPMs into a series of repos like:

redhat-6-server ##(base redhat 6 OS/)

Does centos 6 merge all the redhat 6 repos into one big repository? or still leave out some minor/functional ones? If the second is true, then it will be great if we can find the repo mapping link between Redhat 6 and centos 6.

CentOS project put's everything ALLOWED in one big repository. I think
there are things in RHEL repositories that are not published via src.rpm's.

Has any one used resizefs module with cloud-init on centos/redhat before? How to call it with #cloud-config user data, do I need to give it any parameters? I googled cloud-init, but it is pretty difficult to find a manual/book on this, and mostly they are Ubuntu based.

If possible, I'd like to use a same image/AMI to boot up instances(VMs) with different disk size setup, and let cloud-init to take care of increasing partition size, and file system re-sizing. Is it possible for centos/redhat?

Everytime Kernel is updated VirtualBox modules fail I have to reboot into the new Kernel, run the following commands and then it starts working.

$ sudo akmods --force
$ sudo dracut -v -f
$ sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

Then everything starts working again and the boot error goes away. My question is how can I automate this task.

I recently migrated approximately 100 rhel 6 machines from NFS3 to NFS4 (server is rhel 6.6, clients are a mix from 6.3 to 6.6). Things went pretty smooth until several hours into the new configuration, then things started
running very slowly. Restarting the nfs server process clears the issue which seems to indicate the server is the problem.

The file system itself can do some very high io throughput, on the order of 1GB/sec sustained and the "th" values in /proc/net/rpc/nfsd never increase which indicates i/o's are completing on time with no thread starvation. The server itself is set for 384 threads. During the previous NFS3 config the thread count was much higher and had no problems.

I suspect file locking as the primary application in use ( an in house app) uses a lot of little startup scripts which call other scripts to set up the environment etc. Under normal circumstances this startup takes about 6 seconds. Over time that duration increases up to 30 and even 70 seconds in some cases.

I've scoured every reference to nfs4 performance degradation I could find but nothing seems to call out what we are experiencing. A few retrans exist in nfsstat but nothing that stands out. Generally, everything "look" OK but
clearly is not.

Oh, and this is all being run over 10G Ethernet. If memory serves, I believe the kernel is 2.6.2-504.8.1 on the server.

Any ideas about what else to check would be greatly appreciated.

I am setting up Apache on Redhat and have the following errors:

Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 59 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load
/etc/httpd/modules/ into server: /etc/httpd/modules/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have the following 3 lines in the httpd.conf file

ServerRoot "/etc/httpd" - This was already their
LoadModule perl_module modules/
PerlSwitches -w -T
PerlConfigRequire /var/www/html/bugzilla/

I am not sure what else I need to do fix this error.

I installed CentOS 6.4 on a partition on my computer a few days ago, and I'm trying to equip it with the software i think i need.

For example, i need, or i think i need, a couple of gnustep programs for uploading images from my digital camera (the programs being openapp and

I imagine that these are old enough that they must surely exist in rpms somewhere.

But i apparently don't know how to google around sufficiently well to locate a repository that contains them, or even that contains packages that i know exist as rpms. For example: i'm certain that an rpm exists for
a package called gnustep-make, because its name popped up on But if i try 'sudo yum install gnustep-make' i get 'No package gnustep-make available.'
So that clearly means that i don't have enough repositories configured for use.

So, i'd be grateful for any pointers to a list of CentOS-compatible repositories that i can put in the yum configuration (/etc/yum.repos.d or elsewhere).
