    Hi Guys
    I am new to suse and embarking on a project to set up a working database server I have recently read the following tutorial at :- http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-opensuse-11.1 - and found it very helpful

    However i have come across an issues at page 3, at 7 DNS Server,
    After running
    chkconfig --add named
    returns
    # unknown

    Any idea what i have done wrong?

    Can you help please?

    Server being setup is
    PIII, 2 Ethernet Cards, Sound Card HDD,40GB sorry cannot find out at present what the system spec says is the full spec of the server.

    I have Tried
    /sbin/lspci

    Did
    Code:
    yast2 -i bind bind-chrootenv bind-devel bind-utils
    show any errors?

    Hi Falko
    I have ran the command but unable to save it, for upload.

    I have tried the following to save the output to a floppy without any joy

    Inserted formated Floppy (Msdos)

    #mdir a:
    dir for A
    No files

    check disk empty

    #mcopy /etc/init.d a:/etc/init.d
    no such file or dir

    I have tried to mount this also was unsuccessfull

    #mount /dev/fdo/mnt/floppy
    cant find

    Help please.


    Ok at last i have been able to access the server - using wrong port no.


    Please find as requested results

    :~ # # ls -la /etc/init.d/
    :~ # total 584

    /etc/init.d/named doesn't exist. Did you maybe accidentally delete it?

    OK! got the message. Reinstall.

    I have started again an lo an behold things have progressed further for me. Yes.

    1. However have run into a few more issues at the telnet section :-
    # telnet 127.0.0.0
    Trying 127.0.0.0...
    telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.0: Connection refused

    continued with install

    2. I have now had to stop at Page 5 - 11 Apache = PHP 5
    first section ran ok.
    second section only the first command ran all the other 6 commands in this seq. returned the following:-

    # yast2 -i apache2 apache2-devel apache2-mod_perl apache2-mod_php5 apache2-prefork perl-HTML-Parser perl-HTML-Tagset perl-Tie-IxHash perl-URI perl-libwww-perl php5 php5-devel zlib zlib-devel
    # yast2 -i php5-bcmath php5-bz2 php5-calendar php5-ctype php5-curl
    # php5-dbase php5-dom php5-ftp php5-gd php5-gettext php5-gmp
    -bash: php5-dbase: command not found
    # php5-dbase php5-dom php5-ftp php5-gd php5-gettext php5-gmp
    -bash: php5-dbase: command not found
    # php5-iconv php5-imap php5-ldap php5-mbstring php5-mcrypt php5-mysql
    -bash: php5-iconv: command not found
    # php5-ncurses php5-odbc php5-openssl php5-pcntl php5-pgsql
    -bash: php5-ncurses: command not found
    # php5-posix php5-shmop php5-snmp php5-soap php5-sockets php5-sqlite
    -bash: php5-posix: command not found
    # php5-sysvsem php5-tokenizer php5-wddx php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl
    -bash: php5-sysvsem: command not found
    # php5-zlib php5-exif php5-fastcgi php5-pear php5-sysvmsg php5-sysvshm ImageMagick curl
    -bash: php5-zlib: command not found
    #
    It looks bad yet again - such a straightforward install giving me a head bashing time.

    But we learn from our mistakes - any idea what i have missed this time?

    Dont think it wise going on any further,Ill wait a reply.
    Thanks

    This should all be on the same line:

    It's
    Code:
    telnet 127.0.0.1 25
    BTW, you can connect to the server with an SSH client such as PuTTY. With PuTTY, you can simply copy&paste all commands from the tutorial.

    I have done the following, this is the result

    # /var/log/mail
    -bash: /var/log/mail: Permission denied

    is this the wrong command? or have i set it up wrong thus far.
     
  16. falko

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff Moderator HowtoForge Supporter ISPConfig Developer

    Use
    Code:
    vi /var/log/mail
    or
    Code:
    cat /var/log/mail
    To check the last 100 lines, you can use
    Code:
    tail -n100 /var/log/mail
