Re: Libreoffice base complaints no JRE installed

I've just run dnf upgrade from CentOS 8.2 to CentOS 8.3.
LibreOffice and 'openjdk' were both updated, and LibreOffice is correctly finding 'opdnjdk'
I did notice that LibreOffice is now showing 'openjdk' as "Reb Hat" as opposed to "Oracle"

Re: physical partition vs logical partition

If you have one machine with a large hard disk, it's sometimes good to use both. For example, if you have a 512Gb drive, you could create a GPT partition table, then divide into two 256Gb physical partitions, then install linux to one of the physical parttions, using LVM within that partition. You n...

Re: Libreoffice base complaints no JRE installed

When you install LibreOffice Base for the first time, it will install 'openjdk', and be able to find it.
If you updated 'openjdk' without fixing the path in LibreOffice, it might complain it can't find it.
In LibreOffice Base, the path is set under "Tools : Options : Advanced"

Re: XRDP logon from Windows using hostname

First thing to check that host name resolution is working from Windows. e.g.

Code: Select all

nslookup centoshostname1
nslookup centoshostname2
and see if there's any difference.

Re: HOW TO RESIZE VFAT MOUNT POINT ON CENTOS 8

Are you sure the RH objectives state that you must be able to resize an msdos (vfat) file system? It may say you need to be able to create and mount a vfat filesystem, but where does it say anything about having to resize it? If this is related to a Red Hat exam, do they not supply you with a contac...

Re: vncserver failed

Good news that you were able to get it working, at least in one of the scenarios. In addition to the RHEL7 guide above, I have now found a similar guide for RHEL8 https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/using_the_desktop_environment_in_rhel_8/accessing-the-deskt...

Re: vncserver failed

When using RHEL / CentOS, it's important to follow the official guides https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/system_administrators_guide/ch-tigervnc NOTE that this guide is for RHEL7, I can't find the RHEL8 version, and there may be some changes, but see also ...

Re: Move some configurations from "httpd" to Virtual Host file.

The answer is "it depends". Each directive can be used in a certain "context". Some directives are per "server", others are per "virtual host". You can find out which is which by using this page https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/quickreference.html The letters on the far right of the page tell y...

Re: Linux GUI is terribly laggy and freezing on server hardware

It sounds like the hardware works in Windows, and also with the minimal driver that's used before the real GUI starts. Linux distros are probably starting off with the minimal driver and then loading something like 'radeon' or 'amdgpu' and suddenly it breaks because the video chip is not new enough ...
