Installing remmina on Fedora 15 to connect remotely windows servers

The basic constant you must think on that is that installing remmina, all of it is prepared to rdp to a windows machine. But, by default not always the rdp protocol is disable for that. So, first you must install too the plugins.

These plugins change sometimes their names, so my advice is: search it on yum. as described below:

yum search remmina-plugin
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

========================= N/S Matched: remmina-plugin ==========================

remmina-plugins-common.x86_64 : Common files for Remmina Remote Desktop Client

 : plugins

remmina-plugins-nx.x86_64 : NX plugin for Remmina Remote Desktop Client

remmina-plugins-rdp.x86_64 : RDP plugin for Remmina Remote Desktop Client

remmina-plugins-telepathy.x86_64 : Telepathy plugin for Remmina Remote Desktop

 : Client

remmina-plugins-vnc.x86_64 : VNC plugin for Remmina Remote Desktop Client

remmina-plugins-xdmcp.x86_64 : XDMCP plugin for Remmina Remote Desktop Client

 Name and summary matches only, use "search all" for everything.

Then after that I installed the: “remmina-plugins-rdp.x86_64” described above:

yum install remmina-plugins-rdp.x86_64

et voi’lá !





Install EMC Powerpath + Naviagent on Oracle Linux 6

I had to install Oracle Linux 6 from scratch on two servers that are going to be used in a RAC. As we’re going to use ASM to access the datafiles and the storage is provided by LUNS from an EMC Clariion, I had to install the Navisphere agent and the EMC PowerPath on a trial and error method.

And surprise, surprise, libraries were missing as usual when I tried to install the RPMs I downloaded from the manufacturers support sites.

Since none of the machines had internet access and I could only use the installation media as a mounted filesystem (through iLO), I thought it would be a good idea to create a new repository for yum and from there try to install the missing dependencies.


So, first step: Create the repo:

[root@A1UAC3DB10 ~]# yum update

Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin

This system is not registered with ULN.

ULN support will be disabled.
