I'm tidying up my CentOS stuff in preparation for it's death :cry: How do I leave the board? I've been hunting around the User Control Panel and can't see the way out. Thanks, and goodbye.

Re: Upgrade to CentOS 8.5 breaks dbus-broker from EPEL

This has been discussed at length in both the Alma newsgroup and Alma chat. One solution, which has enabled me to upgrade with KDE, is to enable the epel-next repository with an enhanced cost.

Upgrading to *8

I'm well aware of the past position that a major upgrade has to be a reinstall, but have you folks seen https://almalinux.org/elevate ? It claims: Currently ELevate provides Leapp data for migration from CentOS 7 to the following OS: AlmaLinux OS 8 CentOS Stream 8 Oracle Linux 8 Rocky Linux 8 I've n...
