Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

Having spent countless hours trying to solve this going to disable onboard video card and add a half-height PCI card to see if that get around the GUI no login prompt issue.

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

It appears this was a documented bug gnome-session 3.25.? 3.26 was to address it. I opened a secure shell session into the server and I ran gnome-session --version on the problematic server and it said 3.25.... I found the gnome.session file, there were three others. I renamed the gnome.session file...

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

I googled other desktops, found thread on installing Cinnemon (not familiar with it), installed it but can't figure out how to use that. I see from same post you can choose which desktop when you are at the login screen but this screen just has CentOS 7 logo, nothing else, can't choose different des...

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

I didn't see an option to choose which desktop to use when installing the GUI-server. Is there a way to change to a different desktop from a text login or via VNC?

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

I see a post from 2014 that the /usr/lib64/dri/radeon_dri.so was missing. I checked my Lenovo server I built yesterday to see if it was on there (to try copying it) but it's not on that machine either (not needed). viewtopic.php?t=48561

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

Yes I did. I brought up the problematic server along side a working GUI-server install on a Lenovo desktop I built yesterday. Since the CentOS7 grey graphical screen appears without login I didn't think it was a graphics driver problem.

Re: HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

Server located 600 miles away. Used HP Remote Insight to watch boot up. There is a bootable USB with latest CentOS 7 ISO on it. I tried to get machine to boot into the LiveCD but can't have to have someone physically try to boot the LiveCD option to see what graphical driver it uses there. The insta...

HP Proliant DL380 Gen 7

I have two Gen 7 Proliants I've tried installing CentOS 7 on needing the graphical interface. The installation runs fine but when the GUI presents itself it's nothing but a grey screen. If I boot from a DVD or USB stick into the LiveCD the graphical interface works fine. I don't know what driver the...
