User profile hosed after password changed

I had a CentOS 6 user whose password had expired, try to reset his password on a CentOS 7 machine. This appears to have jacked up his gnome profile when he went back to his CentOS 6 machine. KDE seems to work fine, but gnome is having all kinds of issues - i.e. very slow login time, missing menus an...

Suggested KVM switches for CentOS 7

Hello, This might be more of a vendor specific thing but I'm hoping to tap into the base of user experience here to possibly get some good feedback. We have users that use an IOGEAR KVM to switch back and forth between their Windows 7 workstation and their CentOS 7 workstation. The Windows machines ...

Disabling CUPS service

Hello, This should be an easy question, just wanted to get a confirmation. Is the CUPS service only needed for a print server? Does a client that uses a network printer need to have the CUPS service running? I tried testing a few systems after disabling CUPS to see if they could still print and they...

Issues with SSH key authentication

Hello, This should be a simple issue, but I'm missing something somewhere. Here goes .. I had SSH keys configured for logging into a bunch of CentOS 6 workstations, so I could do passwordless logins. Our home drives are on a network share, so known_hosts is in /share/username/.ssh, and the same fold...

4 head video card recommendation for CentOS 7

I'd like to get a video card recommendation for a CentOS 7 workstation running 3 monitors. We have been running NVIDIA Quadro NVS 440 video cards on CentOS 6. These cards themselves now are pretty ancient, and they don't seem to work that well on CentOS7 - i.e. it's easy enough to get 2 screens work...

How to stop the shrinking windows in CentOS 7?

How do you stop all of the open windows from shrinking and tiling in CentOS 7?

I find this annoying and can't figure out where to disable this "feature".

Getting web app to recognize specific java version

Hello, I have a web app for a Dell Equallogic management console that requires Java SE 6 Update 31 or later. Java 1.6 wasn't installed in the system - the java installed is 1.7 and 1.8 (1.8 is the default). I got a legacy copy of Java 1.6-45 from the Oracle website and installed that. The "install" ...

workspace switcher menus disappeared ??

Hello, I have a couple of CentOS 6.9 workstations, both running Gnome. On one of them, if you right click on the workspace switcher in the lower right corner, you get an option for "preferences - help - about - remove from panel". On the other one, the only options are "help" or "about" - there is n...

Updating java tarball updates

(hopefully this question isn't too open-ended) What is the proper way to update Java installed via a tarball? (i.e. not a yum or rpm install) More specifically, I'm concerned about applications that link to a specific java file location that is probably going to change in an update. Each system has ...

Re: Repo question - new packages don't show up when running "yum update"

Thanks for the quick reply.
So, should I remove the existing repodata folder, and run "createrepo" again on the x86_64 folder on my server?
