Thanks Michael - let's hope it's a radical update - it's sorely needed...
Thanks Nick for the link. Seems like missed quite a bit while out of action.
I have given up on the search function here and consider it worse than useless as that large search bar just wastes valuable page real-estate. The site is too show to look at more than 2 or 3 hits, and the search lacks any ability to refine one's search. At least with the previous forums you could make selections that limited the number of hits. So I apologize for resurrecting a dead horse that already had a post-mortum.
Thanks Nick. So do we assume the maintainers of the "underlying forum software" have had the bug reported to them and that they don't care, are unable to fix, no staff, over-burdened with worse bugs awaiting fixes or ???? I was using tcp-ip from before web-sites and "www" existed when the protocol was mainly used for information exchange between academic facilities such as Universities, and in that time have seen the growth of the internet and in particular web-sites. Visited hundreds of them. With a few decades of experience in software development we still have a major piece of software that cannot provide a reasonable and reliable time period between when a forum append is created and the present time? Tragic.. I can only hope something better is selected next time the forum software is changed, this site is a pita...
Phil, I see you are using the instructions on my site to install sarg. As mentioned, the format of the ClearOS V 6 repositories has changed. Therefore, in the spirit of "eat you own dog-food", made minor changes to the yum instructions and successfully installed on a i686 ClearOS 6.7 installation. I have the Community version - no idea if the "Pro" version is different. I don't have a Version 7.x system running currently to provide instructions for it.
I follow the forums occasionally using the "Featured Topics" page showing the latest forum additions/updates.
In the box for each topic is a picture of a clock and text beside it, a text example "2 days ago"
This is extremely inaccurate. In my latest update to "Anybody having problems with Intel e1000 on ClearOS 6.7?"
I went from "7 minutes ago" to "1 day ago" in less than 1 hour :-(
Somebody needs to amend the forum software to calculate time differences properly?
Still get the occasional hangs, but now they are always discovered and the adapter reset. My little script didn't need to kick in... an example...
Also just discovered this tip :-
Both the E1000 NICs here are the newer version, so now running with 4096 Rx and Tx descriptors. No idea if this will help the hang problem, but should help performance - will continue to monitor.
You are going to research whether this is a software problem, or co-incidentally the hardware started to fail about the same time you started the re-installs. Why did you re-install anyway if the system had been working well for 2-3 years? I take it you don't have a full system backup of the originally working system...
At http://danda.poweredbyclear.com/master-frame-crash.html you will find some information which may or may not help you. Still a work in progress interrupted when I was hospitalized, so beware as it is still draft status...
Thanks Nick - your script works well... looks like we overlapped...
Since my trouble-some machine was 32-bit... kmod-e1000-8.0.35-1.v6.i686.rpm
available from :-
then, since I also have a 64-bit m/c, repeated everything there :-
RHEL 7 can be installed using VNC - not sure if this works with ClearOS, I don't have a copy...
Don't think you will be at all successful in persuading Redfhat to re-instate the natsemi driver... See
and scroll down to the section entitled "Networking Drivers"
Redhat cleaned out something like 80+ drivers for old NICs for version 7.0 that are no longer in production... that list includes natsmi.
So, as Nick has suggested, you are on your own. If the driver you want hasn't already been added to elrepo (some drivers removed from the distribution have been -re-created and available at http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el7/x86_64/RPMS/ ), then elrepo will consider requests for additions via their bug tracker http://elrepo.org/bugs/main_page.php - more information via their mailing lists...
I don't have ClearOS 7.1 - but my Fedora /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf looks like this :-
No "index.htm" - I suspect from what you have posted ClearOS 7.x is the same.
index.html is the normal linux standard (NOT Idex.html as you posted - linux is case sensitive :-)
watch out for that trap you just fell into.... :-)
Windows tends to use index .htm - legacy of the 8.3 filename standard I guess.
If you want index.php as well, you need something like this (this example is for ClearOS 6.x)
