Time Event
Problem building custom kernel
Greetings all.

I am trying to upgrade to kernel 2.4.27 on a HP Proliant 360 G3 that is running RedHat ES 2.1. I am using the guide from the Digital Hermit.

1) Downloaded the source from kernel.org and unzipped and untarred it /usr/src/linux-2.4.27 and linked it to /usr/src/linux.

2) Performed a make oldconfig in the the directory of the home directory of the old kernel and copied .config to the home directory of the new kernel.

3) Ran make oldconfig in the directory /usr/src/linux-2.4.27 and answered a bunch of questions.

4) Ran make dep, clean, bzImage, modules, modules_install with no errors.

5) Ran the command mkinitrd /boot/init-rd-24.27.ing 2.4.27 and it failed with the message

No module cciss_2445 found for kernel 2.4.27

Any help?

That module is for the hardware raid controllers.

Hotmail Says I Spam
Hey Again!

With some help from a member here, I was able to get my SquirrelMail configuration working! :) Now, I just have one remaining problem, and that is Hotmail marking all out-going messages from my server as spam. Below are the complete MIME headers from an e-mail from my server to my Hotmail account:

MIME-Version: 1.0
Received: from mail.example.com ([67.18.xxx.xxx]) by mc6-f24.hotmail.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.6713); Wed, 1 Dec 2004 19:00:11 -0800

First of all, that "localhost.localdomain" thing, that looks really weird. I don't think that's correct. Secondly, is there anyway to get rid of all that stuff about SquirrelMail?

Please note, I have changed the originating IP and mail server IP as well as the the domain name associated with the mail server in the above, assume that example.com is setup correctly in terms of DNS. Reverse DNS is also setup on 67.18.xxx.xxx to resolve to example.com.

Thanks in advance!
I've got a hard drive that I think is going bad. Its got a lot of super important stuff on it, of course I don't have any backups. The reason I think the hd is going bad is because I keep gettings messages that say, "IRQ LOST" and some stuff about the hd. In addition to that its old (10 GB).

I have a 100GB drive that I'd like to replace it with. My question is how can I move the whole OS from the old HD to the new one. I seem to remember there being a utility called dd that would make an exact copy of the drive image.

Another consideration is that its running RH 7.2, and I'm thinking that I'd like to upgrade/switch distros. This computer is mostly a server. It runs my personal website with php and perl scripts, is a windows print server, firewall, and other stuff I can't recall at the moment. Anywho, I'm thinking that I'd like to go to a less enduser centric distro like Debian or FreeBSD but at the same time I don't want something thats going to be a nightmare to migrate.

So, I'd apreciate any helpfull feedback. I don't really need that much hand holding but I'd just like to get started in the right direction to save time since I've got a wife and kids and a job and less time to mess with such things.
