Re: Upgraded to latest kernel 5.13 and having trouble booting

Because that's what the instructions said: https://www.osradar.com/how-to-update-your-centos7-to-the-latest-kernel/ I have Nvidia drivers and still have issues booting. Let me suggest that you don't visit that site in the future. Apart from the poor advice, the writing was very poor. You don't need...

Looking though past commands, I did install the ML version:

yum --enablerepo=elrepo-kernel install kernel-ml -y
Why did you do this? Why not just stick with the default CentOS kernel?

Oh crap! Are you referring to
  • /etc/cron.d
  • /etc/cron.daily
  • /etc/cron.hourly
?

I did not think of checking them, no.
/etc/cron.weekly
/etc/cron.monthly

Also root's crontab ("crontab -e").

Re: logrotate not keeping allocated files

Have you searched all the possible cron directories for something else that is doing log rotation?

Re: logrotate not keeping allocated files

How about posting the contents of /etc/logrotate.d/syslog and /etc/logrotate.conf?

Also check that none of the files are listed in other files in /etc/logrotate.d/

Re: Postfix won't start as service

I have 4 CentOS 7 servers setup exactly the same. At one point the postfix on one of the servers started to refuse to start with systemctl (it works fine on the other 3). If I do $ systemctl start postfix it hangs for a while and then fails. The result of journal is I don't get $ journalctl -f -u p...

All works now, needed to disable NM.
Unfortunately, in my experience, that's the correct solution for many networking issues.

Re: Yum update interrupted; system boots to grub prompt now

If your supposition is correct, then the solution is to boot into one of the older kernels, then re-install the kernel and force the DKMS update.

Shouldn't DKMS do its work on boot also?
