Re: how to use CentOS 7

You need to fix your DNS or network. The error is "Could not resolve host: mirrorlist.centos.org: " though I had to rely on google translate to turn "nieznany blad" into "Unknown error". Check the contents of /etc/resolv.conf to make sure it contains "nameserver 1.2.3.4" lines (where 1.2.3.4 is the ...

Re: Pam checking UID => 1000, How to disable

If you are hitting this problem logging in as root and getting the message about uid >= 1000 then you have something else wrong. Root can always login and the only time it hits this error is if you have something else wrong. Commenting or changing the rule about uid >= 1000 is not the correct soluti...

Re: Centos 7 terribly slow. Any way to improve?

I see you have an ATI video card there. Is it using the radeon driver or is it falling back to the catch-all 'vesa' one? Look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log for details and if you can't work it out, post it either here or on pastebin.centos.org if it's very large. Wrong video driver would certainly affect v...

Re: Remote access to Centos 7

I've used to open tigervnc towards localhost:59XY (from the CentOS 7 Desktop) and can see what I have opened from my Windows Jumpstation. Really? Last time I used vnc, you got a new desktop for each vnc session and none of those were related to each other nor to any GUI session running on the local...

Re: Spectre Variant 2 on CentoS 6.8

That depends on what processor you have. The RHEL microcode_ctl package ships updated microcode but they can only ship what Intel has made available and they haven't fixed every processor that was ever released. If you yum update then you will get the latest kernel and the latest microcode_ctl packa...

Re: Kernel 2.6.32-754.3.5 .el6 - Kernel Panic running qemu-kvm guests

That's a known problem I suspect. Reported by someone else with a processor from that generation - an x5460 and an E5410 and also an even older xeon. It's been reported to RH via https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1616384 (private bz since it's a kernel bug). For now I believe your only cho...

Re: Boinc unable to use GPU - nvidia - Selinux issue

There isn't one. When you run semodule -i it installs it on your system and it stays installed until you uninstall it. It is preserved over reboots etc.

You might want to look at the .te file that audit2allow generated to find out what it's doing and if there is anything unecessary in there.

Re: Update DNS BIND - CentOS 7

Yes.. but if you want it fixed in the RHEL copy then you have to ask them to fix it. They won't automatically rebase packages to newer upstream versions just because they're available. Because it has already been fixed in 9.11 - and installing 9.11 solves the issue, I But that's exactly how the RHEL...

Re: Update DNS BIND - CentOS 7

Why not just file a bug on bugzilla.redhat.com ?
