Re: Centos GUI

You should use CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything-1611.iso.

The "Live" iso is intended for running CentOS from the DVD without installation to hard disk. It cannot be used to install CentOS.

Re: [SOLVED] Customize gnome-terminal

Putting the gsettings command in a script in /etc/profile.d makes that it as executed in every shell, even when you are not in a Gnome desktop.

You could put it in a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart, so it is only executed when the user starts the graphical desktop session.

Re: how to demonstrate SGID workings

[sdg@centy ~]$ ls -l ./sleep -rwxr-Sr-x. 1 root root 33112 Feb 13 07:59 ./sleep Look carefully at the permissions: you have an upper case 'S', not lower case 's'. This means that the group execute permission was not set before you applied the SGID. Do the following: sudo chown root.root ./sleep sud...

Re: Need CPU support in 6.6

6.6 was released in October 2014. Look for hardware that was on the market in or before summer 2014. Any more modern hardware (board, graphics, CPU, network cards and so on) won't fly when you intend to install 6.6.

Alternatively, run 6.6 as a virtual machine.

Re: How to add an app to CentOS Repositories

As CentOS aims to be as close to RH as possible, you cannot add packages to the CentOS repositories other than by convincing RedHat to include your application(s) into their releases. https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories lists various repositories. If your applications fall withi...

Re: I'm able to access my VPS through WinSCP but get access denied on PuTTY

CentOS7 uses ssh protocol version 2. If you are using an older version of Putty, it may default to using ssh protocol version 1, which is no longer supported. Check your ssh protocol version in Putty.

Re: Customize gnome-terminal

Why do you want to change the character encoding to anything other than UTF-8? Everything in your system is using UTF-8.

If changing to ISO-8859-15 is your solution to a problem, be aware that this solution may create more problems than it solves.

Re: CentOS returns an Error when I try to update

You have mysql-community-* packages installed, which are packages for the MySQL server created by the MySQL community. CentOS7 provides mariadb. As you maybe know mariadb is a fork of MySQL. Packages from the MySQL community cause conflicts with mariadb. Uninstall the mysql-community-* packages and ...
