blocking mariadb

I'm just going through the process of removing mariaDB to make a Centos-7 system compatible with Centos-6 and read that mariaDB features may keep trying to install? If that's so is there any way I can prevent that happening? My specific requirement at the moment is a LAMP installation so thats mainl...

Re: re-install util-linux-ng

Hi Trevor Base seems to be installed ok - I just did a re-install of sed which went fine. What I did just notice is that I have util-linux-ng installed and originally was trying to re-install that. Then I read somewhere that it had been replaced with uti-linux (ie '-ng' not required) so I tried that...

joomla zero day

just thought I'd mention while I was here that I had my first ever joomla zero day attack this morning (timed around system nightly cron time - beware attempts in your logs - they can be hidden well with other activity) Since I dont run joomla (or anything using json) it isnt an issue but I did wond...

re-install util-linux-ng

I'm trying to reinstall util-linux-ng but yum says its not available.
I tried just util-linux with a similar story.
(from base - not available)

Is this me trying do something I shouldn't or something else?

thanks

Okular Page Width Varying

Okular V 0.16.5 Centos 7 Viewing PDF files with Okular results in widely varying page widths in documents that have no variations. The pages that vary remain the same - ie. something on the page is probably triggering it. The same documents on centos 6 or on windows 7 display correctly. I have tried...

Re: USB-3 file transfer speed indications

Hi Neither partition is fragmented hardly at all. (I did think of that initially) I deleted the folder and tried on win7-64 and it copied smoothly at about 28MB/s (That one is an old PC with USB3 card) There is some minor movement but when it settles down it's fairly stable. On Centos the speed is c...

Re: wine with Centos7.4

Thanks for the warning Trevor but I don't need or want security updates for this machine. Ken ...Unpack the tarball and from a terminal (as yourself, NOT root)... Is there a specific technical reason this cannot be done as root (apart from the normal advisory comments)? If something can't be made to...

Re: wine with Centos7.4

Thanks ken I'll take a look at your suggestions. The only reason I want wine is to run a couple of 32bit games. 7.4 is likely my last Centos install so I wont be going to 7.5. I was just taking a look at what I could get wine to do and found the 32bit issue. (I had previously assumed it ran 32 bits ...

wine with Centos7.4

Is there a difference between wine for C 7.4 and wine for Centos 7.5?
I'm trying to install on 7.4 - is that ok for the yum download as standard
