    messages issued in the log file Oracle Linux 5.8

    952774
      Hi Gyry.
      I'm just starting to work with Linux, so it is especially not a criticism.
      A few days ago I installed Linux 5.8 on Oratsle blade Blade Server IBM. This blade is connected to the storage system through a SAN.
      LUN on the storage system is created and mounted to this blade.
      On the blade 2 network cards.
      Installation of the system was normal. Set up a network card to work with the blade. Spent update packages and made a reboot.
      After the restart, the file / var / log / messages shows:

      Sep 1 11:56:32 dbhyptest kernel: mtrr: no more MTRRs available

      Sep 2 04:02:34 dbhyptest init: Trying to re-exec init

      please tell me is why there are these messages and how to do so they do not show

      thanks in advance

          Dude!
          Your problem with gconf might be related to incorrect privileges in /tmp.

          What is your output of:

          <pre>
          ls -ld /tmp
          </pre>

          You could try to remove the gconf settings and reset them to defaults:

          <pre>
          su - root
          unalias rm
          rm -r /tmp/gconfd-root
          rm -r ~/.gconf
          shutdown -r now
          </pre>

            execution of the command ls -lp:
            drwxrwxrwt 14 root root 4096 Sep  4 08:32 /tmp+


            Also you have to offer to remove files and to reboot the system.
            But at the moment it is impossible. This server runs in a loop Hyperion Planning.
            Сan solve this problem without rebooting.


            If you can please explain the following entry in the file / var / log / messages:

              Dude!
              You can get this message form executing e.g. init -u. There is not enough information in your post to pin point the problem. It is generally not possible to troubleshoot a system by just looking at some follow-up error messages, in particular if they are presented out of context. Perhaps you can describe what you were trying to accomplish.

                How do I report additional. information if this line there was one at that time. At the moment, the server does nothing.
                I'll be watching.
                Maybe some where else to look for information

                  You need to analyze the whole log rather than picking out a message which you think might be related.

                  How did you update your system and what was updated? Are you experiencing problems beside messages in the syslog?

                    Thank you. Will analyze the log, but the practice is not enough.

                      These messages are benign and may be ignored. If you require full details, these can be provided.

                      1) Running the GUI as the root user is a very, very bad idea.
                      2) Instead, log in as an ordinary user and use su(1) or sudo(8) as needed.
                      3) Otherwise, ignore these messages

                      This is the only message of interest, but taken in isolation, it is meaningless. Could be that you decided to change from graphical mode to text mode; if so, it is harmless and can be ignored.

                      If you are just looking at "/var/log/messages" to find possible problems, look for keywords like "error", "panic", or "warning". Everything else is most likely noise.

                        TommyReynolds thanks for the reply.
                        I carefully looked over / var / log / messages and found several posts incomprehensible to me.
                        I will be very grateful for your comments - forum members.
                        These messages are generated after upgrading all packages Oratsle Linux 5.8 and reboot it.
                        I'm a beginner in Linux administration, so Sorry that I can not yet understanding messages

                          This is only a warning and can be safely ignored.
                          https://oss.oracle.com/el5/docs/RELEASE-NOTES-U8-en

                          Warning: Invalid length for Pm1aControlBlock: 32, using default 16
                          These messages are benign and can be safely ignored. They do not result in performance loss or negatively affect the operation of the system.
                          For explanation, search Google for "c02903643"
                          kernel: warning: process `kudzu' used the deprecated sysctl system call with 1.23.
                          It's just a deprecation warning, you can ignore it.
                          WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!
                          ss-mdns is a glibc plugin for .local name resolution. Avahi itself doesn't need it and runs fine without it. You can probably fix it installing ss-mdns from the EPEL repository, e.g.:
                          yum install http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/x86_64/repoview/nss-mdns.html

                          Your devices may not support S.M.A.R.T. Its difficult to guest what your devices are.

                              "Smart" monitoring is not applicable to disk arrays and virtual devices. You may have to customize the devices in /etc/smartd.conf.
