Re: how to upgrade to rpm-4.13

The error I was running into with the install resulted from the rpm .spec file using the "or" operator when checking for dependencies and apparently this operator is not supported until rpm-4.13. This caused the install to fail at the dependency check since the operator was not recognized. I thought...

Re: cannot boot into CentOS 7.7 x86_64 after hard drive failure

Well this doesn't work, set root=PARTUUID=59f2a07f-5863-4e45-9a18-1dd5f7a97463 because this is not the correct PARTUUID value. I did blkid in OpenSuSE to get the correct PARTUUID values as they do not appear in the blkid output from the CentOS emergency session. This returns a value of 048b3916-06 f...

Re: cannot boot into CentOS 7.7 x86_64 after hard drive failure

I ran blkid from the emergency session and I get the following for the CentOS partitions. /dev/sdb6: LABEL="centos7" UUID="59f2a07f-5863-4e45-9a18-1dd5f7a97463" TYPE="ext4" /dev/sdb7: LABEL="centos_swap" UUID="d961b749-64db-4a02-b225-1eb13f55463c" TYPE="swap" /dev/sdb8: LABEL="centos_home" UUID="43e...

Re: cannot boot into CentOS 7.7 x86_64 after hard drive failure

Below is the the fstab file for the CentOS installation. I have edited fstab to add the nofail option and tried to boot. I am still getting the same error. Looking at the error (and writing it down), it says "dev sda6 does not exist". The only drive that has 6 partitions is the drive with root. This...

Re: cannot boot into CentOS 7.7 x86_64 after hard drive failure

If there is a filesystem mentioned in /etc/fstab that does not have 'nofail' as part of its options then the system will go into emergency mode on boot when it is unable to mount it. I guess that OpenSuSE must have included that option by default since all the linux OSs were setup up with the same ...

cannot boot into CentOS 7.7 x86_64 after hard drive failure

Hello, I have a multiboot box with CentOS 7.7 x86_64 installed. Recently, one of the data hard drives on the box failed. This was replaced by a different drive running on a different SATA port as I am not sure about how well the SATA port is working. Yesterday I tried to boot into CentOS and was giv...

Re: [solved] mkfs.ext4 unbelievably slow formatting 1TB partition

For me the performance is 50% lower than the other ssd. You should expect better performance. Move all data away , then create 1 single partition (use all defaults). I need at least 3 partitions on this drive. How should I create the paritions? Should I use GParted or should I use fdisk? For now I ...

Re: move /home to a directory on a partition that is not mounted as /home

Didn't linux_data have 'user_home'? /mnt/linux_data/user_home /home none bind 0 0 It appears that I was just stupid and wrote the bind rule backwards. I entered, /home /mnt/linux_data/user_home none bind 0 0 instead of, /mnt/linux_data/user_home /home none bind 0 0 The second version here works. It...

Re: move /home to a directory on a partition that is not mounted as /home

I changed fstab to mount the additional partitions in /mnt. This includes the partition with the directory that I would like to be /home. I also added the bind mount for /home. # shared linux data partition, /home is here by a bind mount UUID=a89334f7-59b7-4d04-b89b-a5a30c379644 /mnt/linux_data ext4...
