Re: i've managed to break yum and rpm

I remember a client doing this by removing openldap-client or something similar, that removed some necessary library (for yum and rpm).
Does ldd /usr/bin/rpm show anything not found?

Re: Change password

When you're new, it's hard to know what is obvious and what isn't. However, if you had typed, for example, centos-7 change password, you would have quickly found the answer. That is assuming you aren't leaving out important details. You might want to look at http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questi...

Re: Why cant i view a text file in browser?

I'm assuming you can view all the other files listed in the browser, correct? (Including the log ones). Which browser? Is this something where you want the text file to be available on the Internet or something where you're just using file:///home/mydirectory/myfile.txt I've never run into this, so ...

Re: [SEMI-SOLVED] Building libx264 from source fails (for ffmpeg from source)

After mghe had reported success on a VM, I also tried on a minimal install and X added, VirtualBox install of CentOS-7. On that machine, building x264 worked. So it seems that on my main workstation-cum-server at home, there's some oddity that prevents libx264 from building properly. I'll leave this...

@mghe, I forgot to say Thank you very much for going to the trouble of testing it for me. That was kind of you, and I do appreciate it.

Re: [SEMI-SOLVED] Building libx264 from source fails (for ffmpeg from source)

I tried updating nasm to the 2.13.03-0 from the nasm repo, but still get my error with libx264. For the moment, though, the static build is working fine for me.

Re: [SEMI-SOLVED] Building libx264 from source fails (for ffmpeg from source)

Running CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core) last updated yesterday. Used the instructions in the link posted earlier. What newer libraries did you use? I used the versions in the link.

Re: [SEMI-SOLVED] Building libx264 from source fails (for ffmpeg from source)

Thank you! That works for my needs, so I'm marking it semi-solved. (As I still can't build recent x264 I won't mark it solved, but it does fix the issue with the files that were giving me trouble.

[SEMI-SOLVED] Building libx264 from source fails (for ffmpeg from source)

While the version of ffmpeg from the nux repos meets most of my needs, sometimes, with newer videos, I need a few features provided by newer versions of ffmpeg. For a couple of years now, I have been building from source, following the instructions on ffmpeg's trac page. https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki...

Re: Chinese and Korean input method not working properly

It should be, but maybe just in EPEL. I see fcitx-pinyin as an EPEL package. I don't see anything for Korean though. (I may simply not know the name). EPEL is considered safe, but of course, this decision is up to you. https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories under Community Approved...
