Re: SANE can't find Canon Canoscan N124OU scanner

That's a scanner from 2005 so it ought to be supported by the packaged versions in CentOS so I'm not really sure why you went off a source install rampage. Undo it all then yum install libusb sane-backends and try again.

Re: Installed python from source gives "ZipImportError, zlib not available" (Working behind firewall)

Most people we get here who've installed a different python don't use an altinstall, they just blindly go ahead and splat all over the current version and since there was no info to the contrary in your initial post, I tend to err on the side of caution and say "Stop!" first and find out more after....

Re: Problem with emerging queues on Postfix / dovecot / mariadb

I know we have an old system, but it still has to stay It's not about "staying". It's about keeping up to date and fixing known security vulnerabilities. And there are hundreds of them in 6.5 since it's 5 years old and thus you have not fixed anything that's been discovered in the last 5 years. All...

Re: CentOS 6.6 system will not boot after a recent update

Boot an older kernel from the grub menu.

If that doesn't work then you need to provide a lot more information about what you did, what was updated, what you think is "missing" etc.

Re: What 3rd party repos can I trust

Both rpmfind and pkgs.org do not package or host their own repos. Both are basically search engines that point you to other repos. And for the trust issue, you can't trust anyone anywhere :-) However, you can look at the repos and see who is behind them and what their history is. For example, IUS is...

Re: Permissions

You'll need to use the chown command to change the ownership of the files/directories involved. You can read man chown for complete usage info but you'll want to use the -R (recurse) switch and specify the new user:group. Be careful of what and where you run that as you'll need to be root to change ...

Re: CVE-2018-10933 libssh patch

You're confusing libssh and libssh2. They are different.

We do ship libssh 0.7.1 in extras and it comes from upstream RHEL extras channel. They have https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2018-10933 which basically says "Don't panic".

Re: Installed python from source gives "ZipImportError, zlib not available" (Working behind firewall)

No, don't do it. Really, if you install python from source and replace the system python that we ship then you will be reinstalling your system shortly afterwards. All the tooling we ship depends on the exact version of python that we ship - yum will stop working for a start. If you need newer pytho...

Re: RDP to CentOS 7 is okay from Windows 10 but not from Windows 7

I don't have an answer for your problem but I do see that you're running the original 7.5 kernel which means you haven't run yum update and should do so to get all the patches issued since 7.5 came out in April.
