I must admit, I have never had this bug for a very loong time. I thought It must have been fixed or rather removed all together. It was first reported with RHEL 6.1 and was removed as commented here by the developers.
However, I came accross this bug again while trying configure one of my DNS servers running on CentOS 6.3. The DNS (named) service always stopped on the following
#service named restart
Just exceute the following command:
#rndc-confgen -a -r /dev/urandom
and if you’re runing chroot under /var/named/chroot, you must add “-t /var/named/chroot” to the command above. It should look like this:
#rndc-confgen -a -r /dev/urandom -t /var/named/chroot
More description to rndc-confgen can be found here
You should be able to start DNS (named) service after executing these commands.
Place the CD in the CD-Rom and reboot the system.
When ask to select the network install method, choose “HTTP” and enter the following:
1) for 32 Bit
2) for 64 Bit
I recently used the netinstall CentOS CD to install one of my Linux systems. During the installation process, I decided to install CentOS 6.3 minimal to quiken the overall install process. After the successful installation, I decided it was time to add Gnome/GUI to the system. The following were the steps taken to achive this task.
First, it is worth mentioning that there are two versions of this installation.
a.) Short version
b.) Long version
a. ) Short version:
Start a new terminal and enter the following:
yum -y groupinstall basic-desktop basic-platform x11 fonts
b.) Long version:
yum -y install “Desktop” “Desktop Platform” “X Window System” “Fonts”
That’s it! It will work regardless the method used
