How to get into root directory from parent dir in terminal w

Are you sure you need to go into root folder? Because what I think it says is that it needs you to become root user to be able to run "yum update" command. Or use "sudo yum update" after which it asks for the root password.

Re: Keep getting an error when trying to install this on Vmware

I'd like to share that I got the same error message when installing CentOS 6.2 x86_64 in VMware Workstation 8.0.1 using Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.5.0 (most recent version) where I mounted the DVD1 iso. I tried two times and got the same error message about libsepol-2.0.41-4.el6.x86_64 that could not be...

Re: Unable to upgrade to 5.7

The messages I got when installing centos-release-cr-5-6 again, but where fixed also by doing the above: [code] # yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: ftp.tudelft.nl * extras: centos.mirror.triple-it.nl * rpmforge: ftp-stud.fht-essli...

Re: Unable to upgrade to 5.7

Perhaps the issue will be solved by running:

yum clean all

and then:

yum update

As suggested in: http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos/2011-September/117619.html

Re: Unable to upgrade to 5.7

Or the mirrors are not yet up-to-date?

As I understand, the CR updates come from centos.org servers, but if the normal mirrors are not fully up-to-date, I wonder where it will get it's updates.

Re: Unable to upgrade to 5.7

Why did you install centos-release-cr-5-6 just before you upgraded to 5.7? Doesn't make sense if you ask me. I was already using the centos-release-cr-5-6 package but I could't upgrade to 5.7 without removing it. Something about packages which couldn't be found or something. Only 4 packages where up...

Re: CentOS 5 and 6 does not detect a DVD - VMWare

If you have multiple DVD drives or Virtual DVD drives, then the system might not correctly recognize which drive to use, then it's better to make a manual selection for it in VMware Workstation than having it on automatic. Hope this helps you solve the issue. But because you're using VMware you migh...

Re: Yum Update Error

I recommend making a copy of the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file to /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo.backup and edit the original as mentioned above. If it doesn't work just copy back the backup and try again. ;-) The mirrors list shows you the url's for http and ftp, I'd try one with ftp fi...

Re: Disk space VMWare

To install CentOS manually in VMware, you must make this choice from VMware, where you choose the manual way instead of easy install. Then you just install CentOS as you would normally do on a real pc (or server).
