RedHat 7.1 Notes

Some notes on RH7.1


If you're looking for where the firewalling stuff is written it is /etc/sysconfig/ipchains by a /usr/sbin/lokkit. Note that the medium and high levels turn off NFS access.

fstab Format Changes

The /etc/fstab LABEL stuff can be deciphered by using e2label. See man e2label

Applix 5.0

If you can't install Applixware Applix 5.0, follow the instructions at

Note that you'll have to delete any applix RPMS which have already been installed. (Looking in my history applix-bin-spell-base-5.00-1315 was hanging around)

Informix 9.2UC1

oninit segmentation faults. I believe it is a glibc 2.2.2 problem. There is a thread in comp.database.informix on this.

I posted this bug to RedHat as Bug 39803. The resolution is that this should be fixed in glibc-2.2.3-10. I have not tried this.

I have been informed that 9.21UC1 works.
