These error messages tell you that your filesystem on /dev/hda have a lot of errors.
Login as root and do
# shutdown -rF
to reboot the system and check the filesystem first.

Ok, I understand about hda

>vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed <<-- is this hd also?


What about the other entries? (httpd, pop, pam_unix, ...)



My todo list:

1. su root, shutdown -rF

UPDATE

extract of fstab

/dev/hda                /media/cdrecorder

--> /dev/hda is my dvd drive ....   no need to check filesystem then

Sounds like nVidia driver failing to load. It may be also related to filesystem corruption.

ssh login attend failure for invalid user patrick  through port 38699.

I think that fix the filesystem is the first thing. It will fix most of the errors related ot it.

I see in the log, that there are connection attempts with xx.LOGEDIP.01, 02,03,04  and they are not users I authorized, and this on all kinds of service ports.  Is it necessary for a web server with httpd, mysql, pop, smtp to have these ports open, and if not, how do I close ALL ports, except http, https, pop, pops, smtp, and mysql ?

For the sshd log, it seems like what you say.

However, use dedicated hardware firewall box such as Netscreen, SonicWall, Cisco PIX and put your Linux box in DMZ will
be better for performance and security.

about the firewall, I'm getting a router with integrated firewall shortly....  but till then, in the iptables, there are some options:

                                         &#9474; can allow certain protocols explicitly through the firewall. Specify   &#9474;

Should I check eth0 (broadcom) as trusted device or should I only check the ports?  About mysql, its using sockets rather then ports so no prob there

Check the ports.
If broadcom is the NIC connected to LAN and you have another NIC connected to internet, then you can check "trust device".

I found out what was wrong:

http://docsrv.sco.com:8457/en/doc/packages/scomsg/en/cyrus-imapd/install-configure.html#master

Look at the line just above:

12. Remove "/etc/[x]inetd.conf" entries. Any imap, imaps, pop3, pop3s, kpop, lmtp and sieve lines need to be removed from /etc/[x]inetd.conf and [x]inetd needs to be restarted

Also, I had put an entry destined for inetd.conf into xinetd.conf


PROBS FIXED:
1. Security   ---------------    OK

As I mentioned before, did you compile some customerized driver such as nVidia driver or network driver?
Kernel fails to load vesafb?

Vesafb is a framebuffer driver for Intel architecture that works withVESA 2.0 compliant graphic cards. It is closely related to the
framebuffer device drivers in the kernel.
Vesafb is a display driver that enables the use of graphical modes on your Intel platform for bitmapped text consoles. It can also
display a logo.

Hi,
---- http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-list/2004-June/msg05392.html--
   Normally, Linux on x86 puts the graphics card in text mode when it isn't running X. Framebuffers put the graphics card in graphics
mode and emulate text mode. This allows for higher resolution consoles, pictures of penguins at bootup, and allows X to run on other
unsupported hardware. Vesafb uses the VESA Bios Extensions (which were a standard way of getting extra video resolutions towards
the end of the era of DOS gaming).

So, if X is working fine (or you don't care about X), and if you're happy with your text-mode console appearance
(or you don't care about text-mode consoles), then no, there's nothing to worry about.

Don't worry.

Until then
