Intel NUC haswell-ULT

I have one of those new little NUC's and installed Centos 7.1 on it.

 lspci shows
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 09)
00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller
(rev 09)
00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 8 Series USB xHCI HC (rev 04)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 8 Series HECI #0 (rev
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I218-V
(rev 04)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 8 Series HD Audio Controller (rev
00:1d.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 8 Series USB EHCI #1 (rev 04)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 8 Series LPC Controller (rev 04)
00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation 8 Series SATA Controller 1 [AHCI
mode] (rev 04)
00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 8 Series SMBus Controller (rev 04)

Everything is working - except a reboot. Its gets stuck.
I also tried just doing "init 3" and that locked it up also.
So may be a graphics thing.

Anyone know of a resolution?

VirtIO drivers and CentOS 5.4(Final)

Hi All

My guest is a CentOS 5.4 VM:

[root <at> localhost ~]# uname -a
Linux localhost 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root <at> localhost ~]# cat /etc/*release
CentOS release 5.4 (Final)

I wanted to know if the virtio drivers on this guest are stable.

The reason for asking this question is that i found this link:

which states that in order to use the virtio drivers i need to be using 
the kernel >=2.6.25 , but i am using the kernel version 2.6.18 in my 
guest VM. I am actually able to use the virtio drivers in my VM even 
with this kernel version and hence i wanted to know if they are stable 
to be used.

Did red hat backport these drivers to CentOS 5.4 ? If yes , Can you 
please point me to any bug to track this backport activity or any 
announcement of this backport task ?  I need that to show to my team so 
that we can release note this information as part of releasing our product.

Appreciate your help in this regard.

Issue getting Gnome display manager on Centos 6 to Xming on Win7

Greetings -

My objective is to get a full Gnome GUI console display to show in an Xming 
window on my Win7 box.  I do a similar thing with my Raspberry Pi so that it 
operates headless with just the power and network cord attached.  My CentOS 
6 box and the Win7 box are on the same network within my office LAN behind a 
good firewall.  For various reasons that I won't go into I am unable to 
combine them into a single box using KVM, so I would at least like to be 
able to display my CentOS Gnome GUI within an Xming window on my Win7 box. 
And I like the way that Xming works, so I would rather not switch to 
something like X2Go as I wasn't too keen on it when I last tried it.

I have done plenty of research on the web that describes how to do this, but 
I must be missing something.  I have the following things configured on the 
CentOS 6 box.

/etc/gdm/custom.conf file

  X11Forwarding yes
  X11DisplayOffset 10
  X11UseLocalHost yes

I start Xming on the Win7 box with the basic parameters.  Xming.exe 
:0 -resize -clipboard (one window is default)

What is that from?

question about unhide / transitory process


running unhide ( unhide-20130526-1.el7.x86_64 ) on CentOS 7 i get
sometimes messages like:

Found HIDDEN PID: 30784
	Cmdline: "<none>"
	Executable: "<no link>"
	"<none>  ... maybe a transitory process"

On a second unhide run immediately after it, the process seems to have
vanished. Also, i do not see anything about it in /proc, and rkhunter
and chkrootkit do _not_ detect it.

How can i debug or do some further tests? I want to make sure that this
is a false positive and not a rootkit.

Thanky a lot in advance, ulrich

ldap host attribute is ignored

Dear list members,

i have installed a CentOS 7 x86_64 system. I want to let users
authenticate over our ldap server. This seems to be working.
ldap-username and ldap-passwords are accepted for the users configured
in the ldap server. No problem.

Now i want to restrict the access to users who have my centos-machine in
their ldap host attribute.

My problem is, that this host attribute seems to be ignored. Any ldap
user, independent from the host attribute, still can login in.

What could be the reason? (googling around did not lead me to a solution).

The cache is already flushed.

Here is my configuration:

/etc/openldap/ldap.conf contains the line:
 pam_check_host_attr     yes

config_file_version = 2
services = nss, pam, autofs
domains = default
# SSSD will not start if you do not configure any domains.
