Re: Upgrade issues from 7 to 8

So I'm really only looking to save my samba and nfs configurations, along with the VM's I have set up (using VMWare Workstation). It's not a lot, but it took me a while to get my system the way I wanted it. I use Webmin, so I'm assuming I can backup the configuration files (like the /etc/fstab file)...

Re: unable to get touchscreen working

Not sure what happened, but the touchscreen is working now. Must have just needed a couple reboots.

Having other issues now, but will post in separate thread.

unable to get touchscreen working

I was cleaning out my garage and found an old HP TouchSmart tx2 tablet/laptop with touchscreen, and thought "why not put Centos 8 on it?" So I did. I was able to get the wifi working, but I'm not able to get the touchscreen working. It worked during the installation, however once it rebooted into th...

Lost connection on Centos host and VMs

I'm currently running Centos 7 on my computer, with a total of 3 VM's (1 Centos 7, Windows 10, and Fedora 27). Every once in a while, I lost the network connection on the host computer, which then causes the two Linux VM's to also lose their connection. Meaning, if I go on these machines, I cannot a...

Re: Firefox automatic update

ok, so my Webmin setup notified me there's an update to Firefox to 38.7, but it kept failing (since I'm on 44.x now). Rebooted the computer because I had to power down to connect to my new UPS, and when I powered back on, I didn't get the usual "restore session" tab to restore my tabs. Tried to clic...

Re: Firefox automatic update

Nope. No ESR on my computer. Ever. I know what you are talking about though, because my work computer has the ESR with the version number.

Last "yum update" was about 10 seconds ago.
