Re: CentOS 7 Re-Image Using Kickstart, Keeping Existing Partitions and LogVols

Hey Tony, The best I've managed at this point is to manually perform the kickstart instructions in the GUI. So I can select all the partitions I want, reformatting or otherwise, except for the / partition. I have to manually remove the / partition, then create a new one which is identical to the pre...

CentOS 7 Re-Image Using Kickstart, Keeping Existing Partitions and LogVols

Hey Everyone, I've got a CentOS 7 machine which I want to re-image using kickstart, whilst preserving the data on a single logical volume. Here's how the current image's partitions were configured using kickstart. # Creating RAID Partitions part raid.bootdiska --size=1000 --ondisk=sda part raid.boot...

Re: Workstation Uninstructed Reboot

Yeh - unless it's some BIOS sleep timer (if there is such a thing), I'm suspecting some system hardware issue. Ditto. I'm going to leave it in the BIOS boot menu for a month, maybe a little more. If it turns off in this time and boots to CentOS, then it surely has to be hardware or environmental. E...

Re: Workstation Uninstructed Reboot

Hey D'Cat, Lightman,

It's not plugged into a UPS, just a surge protected wall outlet.

The machine itself has only CentOS 7 installed on it at present. It has only ever had a single OS installed on it. I don't use VM's with it.

Hope that clarifies the situation I'm dealing with.

Cheers,
CD

Re: Workstation Uninstructed Reboot

Hey All, Thanks again for the support on this. I can confirm, all the fans are clear and running. Also, my /etc/systemd/logind.conf still holds the default configuration. All lines are commented out, no lines have been added or edited. I know it's commented, so it wouldn't have an effect anyway, but...

Re: Workstation Uninstructed Reboot

Hey D'Cat, Tony, Thanks for the response and apologies for the delayed reply. First confirm if your machine is a Dell Inc. Precision 3630 Tower . If so how much RAM does it have? Is it 16 GB of DDR4 RAM or 32GB of DDR4 RAM? If you have 16GB of RAM you have more than enough RAM. Does it have an Intel...

Workstation Uninstructed Reboot

Hello, I'll provide as much info as I can on this. I'm not particularly well versed in dealing with error logs though so forgive me if I'm not performing otherwise obvious steps. Over the past 6 months, one of my PC's has been randomly rebooting itself without being instructed to do so. This has hap...

Re: Error: Package: kmod-nvidia-430.40-2.el7_7.elrepo.x86_64 (elrepo) Requires: kernel(drm_mode_object_put) = 0x1

The ELRepo copy of kmod-nvidia (actually nvidia-x11-drv-libs) also provides the libs that come from ocl-icd which is why they conflict. If you have ELRepo's nvidia-x11-drv-libs then you don't need ocl-icd installed. Try yum remove ocl-icd and see what else it wants to remove with it. Hey Trevor, I ...

Re: Error: Package: kmod-nvidia-430.40-2.el7_7.elrepo.x86_64 (elrepo) Requires: kernel(drm_mode_object_put) = 0x1

Thanks for the response. It's kind of unfortunate. The issue I'm facing is that GNOME keeps locking up and I'm assuming it has something to do with using the nouveau driver instead of the kmod-nvidia drivers. Could be wrong though. If I was to go through rpmfusion instead of elrepo I get the followi...

Re: Error: Package: kmod-nvidia-430.40-2.el7_7.elrepo.x86_64 (elrepo) Requires: kernel(drm_mode_object_put) = 0x1

Can I jump on this thread too with my problem? (Edit: I should point out that I only ended up at this step from reading the posts above.) Mine pertains to kmod-nvidia-430.40-1.el7_6.elrepo.x86_64 , so I'll make a new post if I'm told to do so. I'm using: CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core) kernel 3...
