Re: tracker-store and tracker-miner terrorizing CPU

Try uninstalling the tracker package? For kickstart, you can specify -tracker to exclude the package. Hopefully uninstalling the package won't try to uninstall tons of other dependant packages as well, I haven't checked.

Re: Speculative execution, variant 4 : speculative store bypass - CVE-2018-3639

Yes, the new kernel is being built. Kernel rpms take a bit longer to build than the other packages, but the updated kernel will be released in due course. We can't start building the new kernel (or any other package for that matter) until Red Hat has released theirs.

Re: yum update issue

You should not use "epel7" packages on CentOS 6. Remove/disable that download.mono-project.com_repo_centos repository and find one that has "6" in its name. And the other question, sorry, there is no upgrade path from CentOS 6 to CentOS 7. You need to install CentOS 7 from scratch.

Re: How to install a specific 7.4 kernel

Grabbing the kernels from http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7.4.170 ... /Packages/ is not an option for you?

Re: /etc/cron.daily/0yum-daily.cron: error

OK, great. One other option is that if you are not actively using gthumb, you can remove the package now and then later on reinstall it again when it has been compiled against the new libraries. This would stop the libexiv-related messages in your yum-daily output.

Re: /etc/cron.daily/0yum-daily.cron: error

Hopefully the packager can rebuild the package soon. When that bugzilla entry states that "gthumb has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 7 testing repository" you can update with yum update --enablerepo=epel-testing to get the new gthumb package.

Re: redhat-lsb.i686 pkg missing in CentOS 7.5

Yes, it was initially misplaced, but despite that, yum install redhat-lsb.i686 would have worked because the repodata knew about the oddly placed package. The package has now been moved into Packages at it should.

Re: CVE-2018-8781 resolution for Centos 7

That page you linked to (and the related Bugzilla entry) has all the information that is available.

If you are looking for a schedule for when a fix might be published, that information is not available either.

Re: WTH is going on with Yum?!

Yum's fastestmirror plugin establishes several connections to the mirrors to measure the time it takes to connect to each mirror. Some routers might think this is some sort of an attack and block the offending IP address for a while. Firefox may also establish several connections at startup. If your...

Re: redhat-lsb.i686 pkg missing in CentOS 7.5

Yes, this is indeed unfortunate. The package will be added to the "updates" repository soon. You can use multiple repositories in kickstart files. If you have both "os" and "updates" repositories defined in your kickstart file, you can install redhat-lsb.i686 just fine.
