      Dear All,

      I am a newbie and have installed Red Hat 7. Now I need to add swap space.
      Please, tell me what I need to do and what command / utility that I need to
      increase my swap area. Should I make additional new device first or just
      edit it? (but why?)

      Thnx a lot in advance

              It seems that u have no more space on you c0d0 drive. u might try on ur second drive if u have space. or try repartitioning ur drive. i think partitionmagic

                second drive if u have space. or try repartitioning ur drive. i think
                partitionmagic for linux is available for this. since u don't have any
                important data, it would be easier to reinstall, takes less time. tell me
                how it works out.

                  How much swap do you have... To me it looks like 128meg ram and 265meg swap.
                  Do you need more? This seems adequate. What do you plan for the machine to
                  use more than that?

                    since u r installing oracle server it would be a good idea to put it in a completely different partition. i generally use pqmagic to repartition my drives.

                      completely different partition. i generally use pqmagic to repartition my
                      drives.

                      give ur root partition around 100-200 MB and around 600MB-1.5 G for ur usr
                      partiotion. put oracle in a seperate partiotion. leave some freespace. also
                      create a seperate var partiotion, since this keeps changing a lot and causes
                      defragmentation. i generally give it 100 mb, which is more than enough.
                      since u do not have any data to be saved, i suggest u start with a clean
                      slate.

                        Can you do something like backup /home (to CD-R? - or to a temp directory on
                        /usr?) and then used fdisk to delete the /home partition and then created two
                        partitions - ie a new /home that is slightly smaller and another swap
                        partition. You may then need to edit /etc/fstab if the partition numbers
                        change. So the tools you would need would be fdisk to delete and create
                        partitions and mke2fs to make a new filesystem on /home and things like
                        mkswap to format the new swap partition.

                        Others may give better advice :-)

                                Redhat Linux 6.0

                                As far as I can tell, telnetd is running on the box, but when I try to
                                connect to it (even by telnetting to 127.0.0.1 locally) I get
                                "Connection closed by foreign host"

                                I was setting up the box to serve as a firewall before life
                                interrupted me halfway through. I think I *might* have set up some tcp
                                blocking which might be the problem? But I don't remember where to
                                look to check...

                                I'm pretty much spinning my wheels, so any help would be appreciated,

                                No wonder everybody gets mad at RH7 even Torvalds said it was weird. They are using the UNIX sysV scheme now it would seem. c (controller) 0 (first) d (drive)

                                  They are using the UNIX sysV scheme now it would seem.

                                  c (controller) 0 (first) d (drive) 0 (first on controller) p (partition) 1
                                  (first partition), it was easier the other way.

                                    Hmm.. I have RH7 on, and haven't seen that before.. after running df -v:

                                    Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
                                    /dev/hda6 12246908 3129928 8494868 27% /

                                    So it all appears to be normal on my RH7 setup :-0

                                    >(first partition), it was easier the other way.
