I am trying to create a vision set up for private study.
I am using Mandriva 2008 and I am trying to install it (for space reasons) on an external hard drive.

However I get RW-00013 the directory can not be created.

I am running this as root - any ideas?

Hi,

did you choose localhost when asked for the hostname? That might not be a good idea, since you'll have to access your eBS with http://localhost.david:xxxxxx

where other clients will not resolve the localhost properly.

What happens when you run:
ping localhost
ping localhost.david

What is in your /etc/hosts file? Did you use <TAB> key between the columns?

Regards,

Arian

I can ping localhost but not localhost.david

In /etc/hosts I just have 1

127.0.0.1               localhost



Should I create a new name e.g. Oraclehost and add Oraclehost.david to /etc/hosts

Either rename your server, and make sure it's accessible with a qualified servername.domain. Putting an entry in the hosts file is not sufficient, you also need to change the servername on your OS.

Or make sure that you only access eBS from this system. Then change the hosts file to:
127.0.0.1 localhost.david localhost

I advice the first option. But you'll need to check how to make your server known under a specific hostname.domain. This will depend on your OS.
