Re: EMACS won't run in graphics mode

Re: Bootup screen

Save grub.cfg to a known safe place and then edit to add "rhgb quiet" to each instance of the kernel command linux /vmlinuz... etc. When it is entered in the latest kernel command it will be kept in successive kernel updates. You can do just one and have a fall back to an older kernel. In the unlike...

Re: Partition after installation

It is easy if the partitions are adjacent on your disk. gparted allows you to do the manipulation of your disk. Best option is to run it from a live DVD or usb system. You can delete the ntfs partition and expand the CentOS partition to use the space. The CentOS install should be unaffected with the...

Re: Resizing CentOS boot partition, dual-booting

You can do your job with Gparted. When you repartitioned your disk with VISTA you wound up with three primary partitions since the HP recovery partition was all ready there. The second resize of VISTA freed space physically between VISTA and the XP partition. Centos recognized that and made an exten...

Re: fresh install of centos doesnt display on whole screen
