Re: CentOS 8 will die and be replaced by Stream

This is IBM's decision, right, since they bought Redhat? IBM always kills everything they put their finger on.

Getting multiple screens independent of each other

I've got a bunch of users with 3 head systems, running CentOS 7.8. By default when CentOS installs, you can move windows between screens, and workspaces applies to all monitors at the same time They want to have 3 independent screens - i.e. you can't move windows between monitors, and each screen ha...

Re: logout button missing in mate desktop

I had the user try that, but they had no option for "Logout".

I had them try "mate-session-save --logout" from a commandline and they got an error "Failed to call logout; Logout has been locked down"

logout button missing in mate desktop

I've got a user missing the logout button in mate desktop - another user with the same mate packages installed does have the logout button. I've scoured the "Workspace appearance and behavior" settings and the "Common appearance and behavior" settings in the mate console, but haven't found any way t...

gnome-keyring-daemon maxing out CPU

I'm getting several users having an issue with ssh freezing on them when they first log on in the morning - i.e. they try to initiate an ssh session somewhere and it just hangs. If they reboot everything works fine for the rest of the day, but the same problem happens the next morning. It appears to...

Re: Does CentOS utilize the /tmp directory a lot when doing upgrades?

Ok, thanks for the input.

I had a bunch of CentOS 6 systems that never had the same kind of issues upgrading from version number to version number, but the partitioning scheme on those didn't have /tmp on its own separate partition. I thought maybe I'd found the missing link, but maybe not.

Does CentOS utilize the /tmp directory a lot when doing upgrades?

This is kind of a high level question I've often found when doing version upgrades in CentOS 7, i.e. like when going from CentOS 7.6 to 7.7, or from 7.7 to 7.8, the updated system often becomes flaky and unstable. I've posted questions on this forum before when it happens, but I suspect because the ...

Resetting custom gnome settings back to default

I have a user that is constantly tweaking and customizing his gnome settings, and his machine has become very flaky, freezing up on him all the time, necessitating frequent reboots throughout the day. For the sake of troubleshooting to see if his issues are in fact caused by his endless gnome tweaki...

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

Cool, that function thing seemed to work.
If I want to roll that back and get rid of it, how do I delete it? Where is it stored?
Does it work the same if the users standard shell is tcsh?

Re: Redirect SSH logging to a text file, *without* using a commandline switch

Ok, maybe I wasn't clear. I don't want the end user to have to add anything to their commandline to get those debug logs. I was hoping there was a way, like via rsyslog or something, to get ssh debug logs sent to a text file. ssh_config has a LogLevel option but that sends the logs to the users scre...
