Re: CentOS 7.x i686 Support

Trevor and toracat; you guys are awesome.

Trevor, I'll check out the latest info you passed along, but i solved my problem yesterday using Toracat's help. I had to modify the cfg just a wee-bit, but otherwise, it worked great.

You can lock/close this thread if you want! Kudos to all your help!

Re: how to backup installed rpm files to reinstall

But i suppose if you really want to acompiish OP's goal, you could do the following: tar cvfz backup.tgz $(rpm -ql name ) Where name is the RPM that is installed without the version, architecture and .rpm extension.

kickstart virtual terminal switching during %pre section

In earlier versions of CentOS, you could have an interactive kickstart installation by just changing the virtual terminal using chvt ; eg: %pre # Change Virtual Terminal so we can get some input from the user chvt 3 exec </dev/tty3 >/dev/tty3 2>/dev/tty3 ( echo "PRE INSTALL START: $(date)" # write a...
