Re: Resetting the Root Password

Thanks, I attempted and entries seems to be entered but I can't see them. The only responses that I see are when I enter incorrect commands due to misspelling or when I attempt to enter the new password and it only allows me to enter the first character. It automatically prompts me to confirm the p...

Re: Resetting the Root Password

Now when I attempt to enter anything, no text appears on the screen. But if I press the 'Enter' key, keystrokes apparently are there. I can see responses from the system for misspelled entries. If I continue the process (overlooking the fact that I can't see anything), when I attempt to changed the...

Re: "chmod -R 777 /" fatal error?

there arent any user interface without that screenshot, i couldnt log in... Press Control + Alt + F1 and that should drop you down to a console based login screen. Alternatively you can reboot into non-graphical mode by adding systemd.unit=multi-user.target to the grub boot screen, and if that does...

Re: Change init level

Seems CentOS 7 has no longer support run level setting in inittab, where can I change the boot level without X? Runlevel 3 is now multi-user.target and runlevel 5 is now graphical.target. systemctl set-default multi-user.target; systemctl set-default graphical.target; To switch from graphical to mu...

no or empty root= argument

I removed /boot/grub/grub.conf for training purposes and now I'm stumped. How do I figure out what the root argument should be just by using the grub stage 2 environment? As far as I can tell the only way to recover this information is to boot from a recovery CD. Is there a way to glean this informa...

Re: kernel upgrade

the main reason i'd want to upgrade is due to the improved performance in fuse filesystems that the 3.15 kernel brings. At the end of the day I think you're asking for more trouble then it's worth. Here are the commands: rpm --import https://www.elrepo.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-elrepo.org; rpm -Uvh http://ww...

Re: Clock running slow after switch to ondemand governor

I guess this is what they meant with the message 'single threaded, single CPU 64-bit physical systems are unsupported'. https://access.redhat.com/solutions/544423 says they are not supported because the upstream kernel doesn't support them. I think it's a hint I should be upgrading my system. You c...

Re: Overheating with Adobe Flash running in Firefox 24.6.0

Maybe try bias 15? I'm not sure. Does it happen only when viewing a particular website? Does flash in chrome do the same thing? What does cpu utilization and the load averages look like?

Code: Select all

cpupower set --perf-bias 15;
