Re: How to shrink LVM group

I want to use it in another way, install CentOS 7 for example. For CentOS 7 I would simply create a new LV for its root, and mount the home and swap just like in CentOS 6. The tricky part though is the /boot. Would it have enough space for all kernels? That said there is pvresize . It can shrink th...

Re: How to install a specific kernel

If the customer has CentOS 7 and kernel 4.9, then where did they got that? If the customer has something else than CentOS 7, can you mimic that environment in Docker container? Furthermore, if the kernel is not the only difference to CentOS 7, is kernel still the culprit? ElRepo does pack some kerne...

Re: package-cleanup --oldkernels

You are running the latest kernel and therefore that is presumably properly installed. The "package-cleanup --oldkernels" will leave the two latest kernels. In other words it will do yum remove kernel-3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64 kernel-3.10.0-693.5.2.el7.x86_64 kernel-3.10.0-693.11.1.el7.x86...

Re: package-cleanup --oldkernels

A little info, if you please: rpm -q kernel | sed "/$(uname -r)/ s/$/ ACTIVE/" * the rpm lists installed 'kernel' packages * $(uname -r) gives version of currently running kernel as a string to the sed * the sed appends word " ACTIVE" to name of currently running kernel package T...

Re: Disable interative startup (in other words disable edit kernel parameters pressing 'e' on Centos) not running

Is that a statement or a question?

The

Code: Select all

edit kernel parameters pressing 'e'

message is shown in GRUB menu by GRUB.

In order to disable the edit option one could, for example, update the GRUB2 configuration to require a password.

Re: Error on boot after update.

One more thing. When I yum update it says qt5 dependecy problems. And yum update —skip-broken not working. What problems? Be exact. One obviously should not skip broken dependencies, unless one is sure that the error is a false positive. Nevertheless, your "not working" could mean either ...

Re: CVE-2018-8897

A new, 7.5's kernel can already be installed from the cr repository.

Yes, there is usually slight delay before the cr repo is populated after a RHEL release.

If you have an installation, then

Code: Select all

yum --enablerepo=cr check-update


If you want to do a new installation from "7.5 ISO", then "no news" or "it will be ready when it is ready".
