Re: cockpit install

man 8 cockpit-ws: When started via systemd(1) then cockpit-ws will exit after 90 seconds if nobody logs in, or after the last user is disconnected. There doesn't seem to be an option to bypass the timeout. How is CentOS 8 doing it (if known)? Thx. EDIT: If it's a lot of work then PLEASE don't jump t...

Re: cockpit install

According to the man page, cockpit-ws is the 'listener'. It is installed.

Code: Select all

Package cockpit-ws-195.1-1.el7.centos.0.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version

Code: Select all

systemctl enable cockpit-ws
Failed to execute operation: No such file or directory
I am missing something basic methinks.

Re: cockpit install

No problem - input is useful! Currently I'm poking around my C8 machine to see how they're starting it. If it's a simple service file somewhere, and I can merely copy (or copy/edit a little) it then life is good. ;) Interestingly, it would appear that the "locate" command, or some components thereof...

Re: cockpit install

Oh, then it's likely me who's 'messed-up'. I installed it assuming it would always be available, as is the case in CentOS 8. I'll probably have to manually create a start service for it on my C7 machines.

Thank you!

EDIT: Corrected 'tar service' to 'start service'.

Re: cockpit install

More investigation reveals there is no cockpit.target.wants (or anything like that) in /etc/systemd/system. Indeed, when I systemctl enable cockpit, I never got the normal message about the link being copied. Instead, nothing!


Hmmm

cockpit install

On my CentOS 8 machines, cockpit is installed by default and works. Liking the quick overview it provides, I've installed it on a couple CentOS 7 machines having found it in the repos. Despite ENABLEing both cockpit and cockpit-motd services on, and rebooting these machines, I have no access until I...

Re: Tigervnc in CentoOS not working.

Been a long time but I learned there was a setup file that not only needed editing, but following the instructions included in the comments at the top . I seem to remember copying the edited file to a specific place ... you have to read the instructions. THEN, as I recall, there was (on the target m...
