how I resolved nrpe configure: error: C preprocessor /lib/cpp fails sanity check

rpm -qa | grep glibc

see all glibc installations

for example, on a problem machine I found:

glibc-2.12-1.80.el6_3.5.i686
glibc-2.12-1.80.el6_3.5.x86_64
glibc-common-2.12-1.132.el6_5.2.x86_64
glibc-devel-2.12-1.132.el6_5.2.x86_64
glibc-common-2.12-1.80.el6_3.5.x86_64
glibc-2.12-1.132.el6_5.2.x86_64

yum erase glibc\*

install headers

yum install glibc-headers.x86_64 0:2.12-1.132.el6_5.2

fixed

#!/bin/bash - no such file or directory

This can be cause by an extra carriage return at the end of the first line

execute the following in termial:

head -1 yourscript | od -c

if it ends with \r \n then it is not in the correct format.

if it ends with \n with no \r preceding that, then it is correct.

to fix the file, use dos2linux

sudo apt-get install dos2linux

dos2linux yourscript

remove hidden files that show on desktop in osx

Sometimes its good to see hidden files in finder, but its annoying that they show up on the desktop.

If you want to stop these showing, here is the command to run in terminal:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false && killall Finder

to make them appear again, use:

defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool true && killall Finder
