    I've just been pointed to a sync'd mirror, so please install it with a:

    Please can you provide feedback. If it is good, the guys at ElRepo will promote it to their released repo and I can give you some important follow-on information.

    I've been corresponding with the guys over at ElRepo and it looks like it needs the niu driver which was removed from the kernel as I mentioned before, but no matter. They have prepared the source file, but it has not yet sync'd to their mirrors so we'll have to wait until tomorrow p.m. when I can compile it for ClearOS.

  • That sounds very odd. What is the output of:And please put the results between "code" tags (the piece of paper icon with a <> on it)

    I don't think you have an ATLS1QGE. 108e:abcd seems to use either the niu driver or the ixge driver depending on where I google. I'm not at my system at the moment to will need to see what comes with ClearOS when I get home. The niu driver was removed in EL7 (so ClearOS7) and I can't find any info on the ixge.

  • I've no idea how this arose as I thought the bootstrap certificate and key was created on installation.

    I could be totally wrong here, but I think the certificate is self-signed. It may also not be referenced to other certificates such as the CA in ClearOS. If so you may be able to generate a new certificate and key pair with the genkey utility

  • For VPN's there are three ClearOS choices:
    IPsec - ClearOS only supports LAN-LAN, but if you go under the hood you can do roadwarrior connections, but for the effort involved I don't recommend it.
    PPTP - This is supported by most OS's natively but even Micro$oft (who created it) recommend you don't use it as it is relatively insecure these days.
    OpenVPN - This is fairly easy to set up, secure and works well. Clients are available for iOS, Android and Windoze which are all free. Note that depending on your Internet Hostname you may have to edit the "remote" line in the .ovpn file you download to point to something which resolves to you WAN interface (perhaps your poweredbyclear.com sub-domain if you don't own your own)

    There is no real difference between ClearOS6 and 7 OpenVPN functionality. The main issue for you is that if you have regenerated your sys-0-cert and ca-cert then you need to regenerate any OpenVPN certificates already created. If you have replaced your sys-0-cert and ca-cert with your own certificates then you will probably fail. If you have just edited the webconfig and apache files to look at different files for your certificates then you will probably succeed.

  • I think a marketplace uninstall only removes the front end app-*'s. You can see in the yum log. The reason for that is exactly the same as the problem with removing packages with the yum or rpm command. It is not particularly a ClearOS issue, but more any distro using yum and it may apply to other distros as well.

    Even the method I outlined using "rpm -e" is only reasonably reliable for recently installed packages, but if anything after that installation requires one of the packages from that installation then what I've said is not good enough and you'll need to track down all the dependencies requiring your packages one by one. Not fun.

  • This is the second time someone has posted about this sort of thing recently. Unfortunately Samba Directory is a Beta app and it does not play well with a number of apps. I am not sure of the development strategy for it but I can try to find out.

    The hotspot program I see posted about is Coovachilli which you'd run with the Radius App for authentication. There is some info on the forum and a lot more on the web but I can't help more than that.

  • Your best chance is to look at var/log/yum.log and see what else was installed at the same time. A "yum remove" is very dangerous as it tries to remove all dependencies so you need to check the packages it is trying to remove. If it is not the same as the list that was installed stop immediately. The safe way to remove packages is the "rpm -e --nodeps package1 package2 ...." command, but it is up to you to check the dependency list.

    If you use the rpm command to install/uninstall packages, do a "yum clean all" afterwards to stop yum from warning that packages were changed outside yum.
