Re: [solved]Centos 7 ignores FQDN/Domain configuration settings upon reboot

For a CentOS or RHEL system see the official documentation https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/networking_guide/ch-configure_host_names In particular note: There are three classes of hostname: static, pretty, and transient. The “static” host name is the trad...

Re: Add an HP OfficeJet 6970 to CentOS

hplip is in the CentOS base. If you have an HP printer, install it. If your printer is not listed, start by trying the highest numbered one of the same type (don't try to get an OfficeJet printer to use a ColourLaser ppd). One tip: whatever your version of CentOS, try to use the latest hplip, and if...

Re: weird logwatch report - can anybody explain ?

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/logs.html seems to imply that the number returned is the data actually sent. The http service in logwatch uses the http logfile group which searches for *access{_,.}log in multiple places. The figures returned are therefore those in the access log. Have you tried ge...

Re: weird logwatch report - can anybody explain ?

There were 103076 successful transfers. 400GB / 100k transfers = 4MB per transfer on average. 4MB for a sound file seems reasonable, it's probably the same few files being transferred may times.

Re: Unable to install CentOS on my new Windows 10 computer

I would never put a backup partition on the same spindle as the partitions it is backing up. If the disk goes you've lost both original and backup. Remember the best way to develop a backup plan is to mentally start with a new system and consider how you would rebuild it if the old one had been stol...

Re: How to get package dependencies when not connected to network ?

I've been in a similar position for some years. What I do is download the complete repositories (rsync) to a local copy on an external facing machine. I then transfer them by USB disk to the isolated servers and rsync the copies there. All my machines in the isolated system have yum configured to us...
