Re: kickstart from cd

Lee,

Thanks for the hints.  BIOS left me as confused as ever, but, luckily,
this is a machine with a working centos install; a quick look at
/var/log/dmesg clued me in.  What was really messing me up was that
cdrom is hdd with cdrom1 on hdc; this is *really* counterintuitive for
me, like a car door that locks by pulling the button up instead of
pushing it down...

I've put it on my list for packaging in the future. But without Internet 
at home all actions have been suspended.

GFS for CentOS-3

I have built GFS & CS packages for CentOS-3.  I am not aware of official
CentOS versions yet so I am offering these packages.

The current location is http://bender.it.swin.edu.au/centos-3/
See the readme.txt for more information.

John.

Thanks John :)

Did you have modify the SOURCE tar file from the original src.rpm, or

should cAos block access to mirror.caosity.org?

Hey,

Greg suggested that I take a straw poll.  

Should cAos take steps to prevent getting stuck with a
big ISP bill in the future?  

For example, should cAos:

a) for new installs, have the yum.conf point to public
mirrors, rather than to mirror.caosity.org?

b) make sure that "yum update" does not substitute a
new yum.conf file that points only to
mirror.caosity.org?

c) allow public mirrors to access mirror.caosity.org
directly, but block direct access by everyone else?

On the other hand, do the benefits of allowing direct
access to mirror.caosity.org by everyone outweigh the
costs of occasionally big ISP bills?

Feel free to express your views, Greg is listening.

Re: should cAos block access to mirror.caosity.org?

Just out of curiosity, do .iso downloads make up a significant portion of
bandwidth on mirror.centos.org?  I was surprised to not find bittorrent
available for them...  I would imagine these files to take up a
significant portion of the bandwidth for new releases.

At the very least more mirrors should be added to mirror.centos.org, and
if that still doesn't help, then go further by removing the primary source
from mirror.centos.org and restricting access to only mirrors.
