Linux: Mengedit file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth

On March 25, 2009, in Fedora, by anif

Jika ingin mengedit dan melakukan konfigurasi networking secara manual pada Linux Fedora Core 10, file yang harus di edit adalah /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth? (Disini ifcfg-eth nya bisa ifcfg-eth0 untuk lan card pertama, ifcfg-eth1 untuk kedua, atau bisa juga bikin alias dimana satu lan card bisa banyak IP Address)

Contoh dibawah ini adalah untuk device eth0, bisa dibuka dengan teks editor seperti vi/vim

$ sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
HWADDR=00:1f:c6:11:04:f2
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=172.16.1.1
NETMASK=255.255.0.0
BROADCAST=172.16.255.255
TYPE=Ethernet
BOOTPROTO=static

Berikut ini merupakan contoh konfigurasi pada eth1

Linux: Restore Boot Loader GNU/Linux Fedora Core 10 a.k.a MBR

On March 10, 2009, in Fedora, by anif

Pernah kehilangan boot loader Fedora Core 10 setelah menginstall Windows sehingga pada saat komputer dijalankan langsung boot kedalam OS Windows. Untuk memperbaiki MBR lakukan langkah-langkah berikut:

1. Rubah konfigurasi BIOS agar booting menggunakan CD/DVD atau UFD

2. Masukkan DVD/UFD Fedora Core 10 dan jalankan komputer, maka akan muncul tampilan seperti pertama kali menginstall Fedora Core 10.

3. Pilih menu Rescue installed system, akan muncul beberapa pertanyaan, yang paling penting adalah pada saat menentukan root partisi yang digunakan untuk / (root).

4. Setelah muncul tampilan shell, kemudian ketikkan perintah berikut:

# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# grub-install /dev/sda

Di sini aku asumsikan device harddisknya dikenali sebagai sda karena harddisk SATA ku dikenal sebagai sda oleh Fedora Core 10.

Kita juga bisa menggunakan perintah berikut untuk melakukan installasi grub pada mbr, akan tetapi prosesnya sedikit lebih lama dari pada perintah diatas

# chroot /mnt/sysimage
# grub-install –recheck /dev/sda

Selanjutnya ketik exit pada shell dan system akan segera restart, keluarkan DVD dari DVD Drive, kembalikan urutan booting BIOS agar menggunakan harddisk, maka sekarang akan tampil kembali menu grub.

Linux: UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) Harddisk

On March 10, 2009, in Fedora, OpenBSD, Ubuntu, by anif

Apa itu UUID, bisa dibaca disini. Pernah melihat isi /etc/fstab pada Linux, yang biasanya terlihat seperti

#
# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Thu Jan 8 04:51:25 2009
#
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under ‘/dev/disk’
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or vol_id(8) for more info
#
UUID=5166e224-33ae-455d-9cf1-3500bca4aa1e / ext3 defaults 1 1
UUID=8b595165-88a8-4b34-b0be-36fa33dae551 /DATA ext3 defaults 1 2
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Pasti penasaran kan gimana cara mengetahui harddisk dengan UUID sekian itu /dev/sda berapa atau /dev/hda berapa, atau bisa juga /dev/hdb, /dev/sdb. Untuk mengetahui hubungan antara UUID dengan device harddisk, pada linux bisa menggunakan beberapa perintah (disini aku menggunakan distro linux Fedora Core 10), yaitu:
