Manual partitioning - units

Hello All,

I'm installing from the latest DVD (1905).

The manual partitioning accepts sizes in various units (MB, GB, GiB, ...) and displays them in GiB.

Is it a way to change the display from GiB to GB ?

New install - Encrypted swap

Hello All, I'm installing from the latest DVD (1905). In manual partitioning, if I try to encrypt the swap partition, and only this one, the program still prompts me for a password. I expect the installer to setup swap encryption with a random key. The same for a /tmp partition. If the installer can...

Re: grub.cfg not updated after new kernel install

I made the symlink point to this file (/etc/grub2.cfg -> ../boot/grub/grub.cfg).
This didn't solve the problem.

I'm updating this thread just for the sake of completeness. I'm not seeking help, I'll will use grub2-mkconfig.

[SOLVED] rebuild cracklib dictionaries

you'd probably need to download the SRPM that produces cracklib-dicts-2.9.0-11.el7.x86_64 and read what it does. I did that and found 31 lists which, given to create-cracklib-dict , make a 8.1 MB pwd_dict.pwd (instead of 8.3). I could investigate the differences with cracklib-unpacker , but I won't...

Re: grub.cfg not updated after new kernel install

Yes, it seems that the CentOS I got has been somewhat customized.

I must live with that.... as far as you don't ban me for using a bootleg CentOS ;)

Re: grub.cfg not updated after new kernel install

Was this a conversion from CentOS 6 to 7? That appears to be a grub legacy directory not a grub2 one.
This is the default installation of a CentOS 7 VPS hosted by www.gandi.net.

Re: grub.cfg not updated after new kernel install

The symlink existed but the target ../boot/grub2/grub.cfg is missing.

The effective grub.cfg is located in /boot/grub.

I made the symlink point to this file (/etc/grub2.cfg -> ../boot/grub/grub.cfg).

Waiting for the next kernel update.
