Re: Installing grub to USB device

let's thank the previous person for the help and for keeping this forum to high standards where people with the same problem can find this question with an answer... as opposed to "just throw it away" :roll: anyway you need to look into syslinux if you want to boot via USB, also you're gonna need to...

Question on the vault and centos5

Hi guys,

I assume the answer is "I suppose forever", but since I don't know I'd rather ask.

How long will the centos5 and all its version live on the vault?

judging from the older versions I assume forever, or until it's decided older versions are taking too much space... would I be correct?

Re: Legacy installation - OLD Documentation needed

Perhaps it does, but it's more of a "sorry, no idea, gotta read through the docs", which is cool, it's old stuff. I was more wondering if anyone remembered the behavior, but I can dig it up.

thanks anyway :)

Legacy installation - OLD Documentation needed

Hi guys, I need to install CentOS 5 for Legacy purposes, and I cannot seem to find the information I need online, mostly because all results come up for 6 and 7. Anyway I'm simply looking for the documentation that talks about isolinux and kickstart installation for CentOS5, because I cannot remembe...

Re: Ran yum update -y on my machine then rebooted; It now kernel panics on every kernel I can choose

do you have any idea at what step during boot your kernel is panicking? the first one looks "post bios" and the other one... "post first one" ? if this really happened moving on with kernels, I suggest you grab an earlier iso, maybe 6.8 with 2.6.32-642.6.2 and run the test again. it would be pretty ...

Re: ifcfg-eth0

you're running the machine from the dvd, every change you made isn't saved. I never really downloaded the centos live dvd, so I'm not sure if you get sent to gnome like fedora's... you have to install it. When you launch the live cd/dvd there should be an icon on the desktop to install and follow th...

Re: which big company use centos destop in daily work?

I don't think it's worth it to use CentOS as "Desktop" I strongly disagree. One get a rock stable, well tested, and problem-free desktop platform with many many years of bug and security fixes. I use it (and maintain it) on many workstations. (CentOS 6 and CentOS 7) IMHO CentOS is the most underrat...

Re: Trouble accepting user input in a kickstart script

I'd say leave alone the interpreter, at that point you can simply add the shebang below as the code is a bit buggy with interpreters (if you check out the boot logs you'll see a warning and fall back) %post --log=/root/post.log #!/usr/bin/env bash ## # exec < /dev/tty6 > /dev/tty6 chvt 6 echo echo "...
