Re: Wireless USB key compatible with CentOS 8

The Ralink 5370 wireless chipset is supported out of the box on Linux distros - I bought this recently for my Ryzen desktop PC: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0012E2BKA/ That's from Amazon UK - a rough equivalent on Amazon US is something like this: https://www.amazon.com/150mbps-Adapter-Wirel...

Re: Transaction Check Error: /usr/lib64/libSPIRV-Tools-opt.so ... conflicts with ...

I have the same conflict issue as everyone else it seems i.e. vulkan is installed from base and then a "yum install wine" tries to pull in spirv-tools-libs from epel, which has file conflicts with vulkan. What's equally frustrating is that you can't remove vulkan from your CentOS 7 system because it...

We run the free Proxmox at work and you can update the free version from one major release to another, but if you have a cluster, live migration doesn't always work between major releases (ca...

Re: Centos 7 network disappearing periodically

I'm running CentOS 7.4 fine on a Ryzen 7 1700 (SM961 NVMe drive, Intel SSD, some SATA 3 HDDs, 64GB RAM). My Asus Prime X370 Pro motherboard has a ridiculous number of BIOS updates (15 at the last count!) and I religiously apply those of course because they do help a lot with such a new platform. It'...

Re: Trying To Move To CentOS 7

What I did on my home and work CentOS desktops when going from CentOS 6 to 7 is to create an "/otheros" partition about the same size as CentOS 6's "/" and install CentOS 7 onto the /otheros partition. Yes, you can share a /boot partition between CentOS 6 and 7 in case you're wondering, mainly becau...

Re: php 7 o centos 7 server

I use the IUS repo myself with both CentOS 6 and 7 to upgrade the PHP release. I'm playing it cautiously first and going to 5.6.X ("php56u" IUS packages) first before considering PHP 7.X (you can use "php70u" for 7.0.X or "php71u" for 7.1.X). I used the yum-plugin-replace package and then "yum repla...

Re: Waving White Flag of Surrender: 7.4.1708

I do suspect the 7.4 CR release is a bit too bleeding edge because of RHEL's rebasing of several important packages (GNOME in particular, but also openssl and others) to later versions. This is highly unusual for a point release of RHEL/CentOS and arguably somewhat opposite to their "we only backpor...

Re: Waving White Flag of Surrender: 7.4.1708

I had a similar issue with libgpod when going to 7.4 and I just removed it (and rhythmbox - neither of which I use) and re-ran the update. I seem to be having all sorts of other issues with 7.4: * The biggest is that only the GNOME 3 theme Adwaita seems to work properly in 7.4 (this is the default t...

Re: RHEL 7.4 is Out; CentOS 7.4 Can't Be Too Far Behind

I'm interested to know if RHEL/CentOS 7.4 will have support for AMD's Ryzen/Threadripper/EPYC. I tried to move my CentOS 7 install to my new Ryzen 7 1700 desktop and it failed badly, so I'm on Fedora 26 on that for the moment. Looking at the single-page version of the Release Notes for 7.4 (so I can...

Re: systemctl mysql & mariadb

So to sum it all up: I think MySQL is somewhat better because it dictates the trend. Actually, I think it's MariaDB that's dictating the trend because it's now the default SQL DB install in the vast majority of the latest versions of Linux distros out there. If you're running "real" MySQL, you'd pr...
