freenx/installing stuff on amahi ???

Postby pbecks1963 » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:43 pm


I use Amahi (headless) remote with freenx. I can't add/remove software because off the way i am (remotely) logged on. (amahi doesn't allow it). I can add software with "su yum install ......... but then i already need to know the name of the packages i want to install. (so i can't use "gpk-application")

Point is: i am looking for a tool with which i can check the integrity of my harddisk's, 3 IDE-HD in a LVM.

HOW do i install it (remote) and what tool should i use?

in a terminal window you can use the 'su' command by itself to raise your priviledges to root (in that terminal window only).

i like the command line and i am used to it, so here it goes:

Code: Select all

yum search foo
will search all packaged for "foo" in their summary (or description, not sure).

i also do this periodically

Code: Select all

yum list all > /tmp/list-all.log
as a way to keep a "cache" of the available packets.
