UDF mount works on RHEL6 & CentOS6 but not RHEL5 & CentOS5

On receiving an install media today I tried mount it on my RHEL5 system:

mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom

But that errored out:
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

In /var/log/messages I saw:

Dell Dset dependent on version of Dell OpenManage

Posted 02-04-2014 at 05:25 PM by MensaWater

During an issue overnight I attempted to run the latest Dell Dset version 3.5.1 for 64bit on RHEL 6.1. This didn't complete. It just hung.

By doing "ps -ef |grep dset" I was able to see the dset child of the dset bin file I'd kicked off.

By running "lsof -p <pid>" on that child's PID I was able to see it was creating a log for its run in opt/dell/advdiags/dset/report/temp1391539132.89/logs/dset/dset.log (note that the temp# changes on...

EXTON-MAN 2014 (Mageia 4) 32 bit Linux live cd with LXDE

Posted 02-03-2014 at 11:09 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 02-05-2014 at 11:34 AM by exton

I’ve made a quick and simple remaster of Mageia 4, released 140201. Mageia has been the third most popular Linux system in the world for some time now (according to Distrowatch.com).

Who is EXTON-MAN 2014 32 bit LXDE for?
There is no official live Mageia 4 ISO with LXDE for downloading. (Only with KDE and Gnome). EXTON-MAN 2014 can be useful for people with older 32 bit computers who like to run an eminent Linux system (Mageia) live with some speed. Also of course for all people...

Reflections: Progress on OpenSSL, and Greybeard Wisdom

Updated 02-01-2014 at 04:03 PM by ttk

I'm finally pulling out of a months-long depressive funk, and touched my openssl patch again. On one hand openssl isn't exactly pleasant to work with (hardly any comments, bizarre formatting, obscure internal interfaces), but it felt good to be writing some C and making progress on my #1 project.

In addition to writing the code, I really should be documenting the whys and hows of the changes, like I promised my friend Chris. I didn't remember that until just now. Perhaps enumerating...

A new version of LFA (Linux for All) is ready!

Posted 01-31-2014 at 08:49 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Version 140131 of LFA (Linux for All), 13.10, 64 bit, with Mate and four other Desktop Environments, is ready!

NEWS about LFA version 140131
1. The LFA ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run LFA from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Iíve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious....
