Re: help for installation ffmpeg in centos 6.6

What have you tried so far? The quick answer is to install the nux repo (see the CentOS wiki article on repos) and use its version of ffmpeg.

Also note that CentOS-6.x is up to CentOS-6.9 which contains several important security fixes and you should definitely update.

Re: some question about installing Centos7

There's a saying, in Unix there's always more than one way to do things, with a corollary, someone will think your way is stupid, but at any rate one way is to unplug the device, plug it back in again and run dmesg|tail It might show something like [379263.893984] sdd: sdd1 sdd2 sdd3 sdd4 [379263.89...

Re: How to install ffmpeg codec in CentOS 6.4

Firstly, you should probably update to the latest version of 6.x as there are important security updates. Secondly, you can use the nux repo. https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories Just search for nux on the page. You can also build it from source, but unless, there's something rea...

Re: Minimal X client install for container

I have a somewhat dated page on minimal desktop. http://srobb.net/minimaldesktop.html A bit dated. If it's not a laptop, you don't need synaptics. (In later Fedora, but I don't think it's true yet for CentOS, all you need for keyboard and mouse is xorg-x11-libinput). After that, choose your window m...

Re: You do not appear to have the sources for the 3.10.0-514.el7.x86_64 kernel installed.

Does your running kernel (uname -r) kernel-headers and kernel-devel packages all have the same version number? This was written back when Fedora used the PAE kernel all the time, but relates to the possible issue. http://srobb.net/rhkerndev.html Short version (if this is the issue) is that uname -r ...

Re: CentOS 6 to CentOS 7 upgrade maybe possible ?

I'm guessing it is new, and they mention solving all problems before doing upgrade. I wouldn't try it on a production server. :)

Also, RHEL-7.5 is still BETA itself, correct? Therefore, I would think that this is also beta

Re: VLC Player can't play DVD Movie

I don't use VLC, but have you tried one of the other players, such as mpv or mplayer? I believe both are available from the nux repo. https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories (search for nux on the page). Although if you have VLC, you may already be using the nux repo. This may also ...

It can be done by command line as well. I have a page that goes into far too much detail at http://srobb.net/dvds.html

Re: Android phone (5.0) doesn't get recognized by "jmtpfs"

I use simple-mtpfs which works quite well for me. I plug in the phone, then type sudo simple-mtpfs -l and it usually sees the phone. Sometimes, on the phone there will be a notification asking if I want to allow it, I don't remember that with Android 5, this is version 7.0 I tap OK on the phone scre...

Re: Learning CentOS 7

RHEL-7 and therefore CentOS-7 is based on Fedora-19, I think. You may be able to find old Fedora 19 books (it's on version 27 now) cheaply on Amazon or elsewhere. Back in the CentOS-5 days, I remember finding the Negus books, which were really good, for Fedora 6 or 7, very cheaply on Amazon, because...
