Re: DNF repair

Are you sure the variable you're looking for is named appstream ? Look it up in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-AppStream.repo The variables there start with dollar sign ($). $releasever and $basearch are always defined. All the others are needed to be specified in /etc/dnf/vars . If the variable you actual...

Re: is "rpmorphan" safe for use?

I found "rpmorphan" tool. is it safe for use? No, it isn't if you don't understand how it works. And it won't help you to discern packages that are needed for a web server anyway. rpmorphan is modeled after deborphan , but there's an important difference that makes it less useful, at least for Fedo...

Re: CentOS 8 version older and newer than CentOS 7?

No, 2.24 > 2.22. The package has been renamed though. In CentOS 7, there were webkitgtk3 and webkitgtk4 providing WebKit1 and WebKit2 API for GTK+ 3, accordingly. In CentOS8, the latter was renamed to webkit2gtk3.

Re: Rebuild kernel from source

@pjwelsh I don't think so: I don't see where kernel-ml-5.5.spec BuildRequires either lz4-devel or pkgconfig(liblz4). @OP See this bug in the CentOS bug tracker. (The command dnf --repo=\*-source download --source kernel still works, but tries to download the wrong kernel.) Meanwhile, instead of dnf...

This is about the vanilla CentOS DVD image, but I guess most of it applies to the minimal ISO as well.

Re: File server resource manager on centos?

I'd say there's no direct correspondence, but all (or most) of the tasks listed in the FSRM overview can be accomplished on CentOS using different tools. For starters, see the Storage Administation Guide . If you have a particular scenario in mind, please tell us about it. Then we could say what Cen...

Re: Centos 8 firefox 68.5 esr: minimise/maximise buttons missing

Train yourself to use keyboard shortcuts — I find it much easier this way:

Alt+Space — activate the window menu
Win+H — hide window
Win+Up — maximize window
Alt+Win+Up — maximize window vertically
Win+Down — restore window
Win+Left — view split on left
Win+Right — view split on right
