I am running Centos 7 in a VM on Centos 6.5, both have the same version of Firefox which is 24.7.0. I always save my tabs in Firefox when exiting and to do that the following options must be set in about:config. browser.tabs.warnOnClose true browser.warnOnQuit true browser.warnOnRestart true browser...

Thanks Trevor, I just realised that the OP's copy of nspluginwrapper came from an invalid repo.

Re: Adobe Flash - Can't install on Firefox 24.7.0

I'm experiencing a different problem with the flash installation, it's telling me nspluginwrapper is not available but flash installs and is working. I'm running Centos 7 in a vm on Centos 6.5, from a fresh install I did a yum update and installed kernel-headers and gcc so I could install the vbox a...

Re: VLC Player

An update to my previous post.

I have installed Centos 7 in a VM and added the epel and nux repositories. In epel I found mediainfo and in nux I found ffmpeg so when I have more time I will do some testing on ffmpeg.

Re: VLC Player

Re: Adding partition to existing encrypted system

Ok I've spent some time trying to get what I wanted, I've had many problems but I finally have something working. I first tried using luks at the partition level and then created the vg and lv, they manually mounted fine. I created a keyfile in /root and added them to crypttab and fstab and did a mo...

Re: Adding partition to existing encrypted system

Thanks Trevor but it is not exactly what I am looking at doing, I want to extend the vg but add a new lv. After more reading I am probably more confused but the way I understand things there are two ways that luks is used. a) You can encrypt an entire partition and create a vg on that encrypted part...

I am freeing up space on sda and I will have 200GB + available which I want to add to Centos. I have already done some reading and it seems I should do the following. pvcreate /de...
