PSA: are you aware of /var/lib/dnf/modulefailsafe?

PSA: modulefailsafe/ "lock" files can prevent non-modular packages to upgrade modular packages. When libuv-1.38 AppStream/Devel were not in sync, I used (modular) libuv-devel-1.36 from EPEL. When AppStream/Devel libuv-1.38 were finally in sync, I tried to upgrade to 1.38 but it was always filtered o...

Re: I need help with virtualizing a physical CentOS 4.5 Linux Server onto Win Hyper-V

Tips: 1. Focus on getting the minimal CentOS 4.5 up and running; you could even experiment with CentOS 4.9 containers 2. Your 200GB of data should be volume mounted from the CentOS 8 host and not stored inside the image or container 3. Consider adding another HyperV disk and create a separate filesy...

Re: I need help with virtualizing a physical CentOS 4.5 Linux Server onto Win Hyper-V

Part II: The OS image is converted to a tarball from the HDD. If your app has a lot of data, that can be tar'ed separately. Here we try to get the smallest OS image possible that will run in a container 1. Boot a LiveCD(Fedora 32 or anything with a decent tar) on your server, this is so that the HDD...

Re: I need help with virtualizing a physical CentOS 4.5 Linux Server onto Win Hyper-V

Part I: This should work: YMMV, I split this into several posts for clarity Expected result: 0. Converted a CentOS 4.5 baremetal/VM OS to a tarball 1. Converted the tarball to a podman container image named localhost/centos:4.5 2. Lets try running it: # using buildah/podman (alternatives: docker, sy...

Re: I need help with virtualizing a physical CentOS 4.5 Linux Server onto Win Hyper-V

I'm going to suggest something slightly easier to handle; no P2V: 1. Install CentOS 8 into Hyper-V 2. backup (+2 more backups) of 4.x than you think you need :P 3. tar the entire file system of 4.x and convert to OCI, Docker image 4. Run the legacy application as systemd nspawn / podman / docker con...

[PSA] This mailing list post explains kickstart/ folder in the repos

https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2019-September/017796.html TL;DR as explained by bstinson Basically the problem is, starting on Day 1 we have the os/ repository populated with GA packages *and* updates (0-day updates and those that came in while we were in the middle of the build pro...
