Re: latex library for centos

According to the last section of http://gnuplot.info/docs/latex_demo.pdf, gnuplot's latex terminal has been deprecated. There isn't even a configure option to enable it, you need to edit the code.

Re: X-forwarding for non root user

You are not supposed to set DISPLAY after logging in to the linux machine. Ssh takes care of that when X forwarding is enabled. It will be something like localhost:10.0, so the value you set is totally wrong (it's for a direct X connection without ssh forwarding X).

Re: No updates since Oct 6

No, this is not an "official" statement. Just my observation of the current situation and its anticipated development.

As far as I'm concerned: yes, this is expected.

Re: Supermicro Ultra SuperServer SYS-220U-MTNR

According to Intel this VROC stuff is supported ootb in 7.5 and later. But you have to install the OS in UEFI mode. VROC is not available in Legacy mode.

Re: kernel reports little free memory in dmesg, but not true

This is from early boot (see timestamp) where linux uses a simple memory allocator that does not necessarily deal with all of your RAM. So the number to the left of the slash is what's remaining from what linux does bookkeeping for (at this stage). This and the untouched rest is handed over to the r...

If you regularly have to ping people for doing what you think they should be doing anyway, you know it's over.

Re: RHSA-2022:5698 - availability java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.342.b07

While RH said CentOS 7 will be supported until EOL of RHEL 7, I don't expect any real effort in this respect. Rebuilds are now always delayed for a considerable time, often for a month or more. I suspect the delay will be constantly increasing until the point rebuilds are always scheduled for the fu...

Re: Not using > 1TB Ram

Linux relies on e820, other tools may resort to other means.

Did you follow the memory population rules from the manual? My guess is that you now have 20 DIMMs @64GB each. There is only one correct way to install them.
