Yum java-devel not listed installed

Folks

I performed an install of "java-devel". Several packages got
installed. So far so good.

Yet, when I performed
yum list installed | grep java-devel
and also
yum rpm -qa | grep java-devel

it did not show up as already installed.

This behavior appears both on Centos7 and Centos6. This bothers me
because as a time-saving effort, I maintain the last output of "yum
list installed" and quickly determine whether it's worth running
yum. True, yum would "do nothing", but that takes several seconds.

Is there some simple explanation?

sendmail

I an running CentOS7 in a docker container. I need to send email from
that container so I installed sendmail and then I run:

m4 /etc/mail/sendmail.mc > /etc/mail/sendmail.cf` and when I try and
send mail it fails with:

<a href="mailto:larry. ... at gmail dot com">larry. ... at gmail dot com</a>... Connecting to [127.0.0.1] via relay...
<a href="mailto:larry. ... at gmail dot com">larry. ... at gmail dot com</a>... Deferred: Connection refused by [127.0.0.1]

Anyone know how I can configure sendmail so that I can send mail?

Display IP addresses on the system console *before* the login prompt.

I have a bunch of VBox Linux VMs (CentOS 6/7, Debian7/8/9, Ubuntu
(14.0/16.04, Alpine) that get dynamic IPs. To get their respecitive
IP addresses I have to login and run 'ip addr'

I would like such info to be displayed on the VM console *before* the
login prompt.

Network scripts ifup-post

Hello,

since updating to Centos 7.4 the ifup-post script in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts does not behave as it did before the update.
I use it to configure additional routes via  /sbin/ifup-local with the
parameter of the interface being upped, but it seems to pass only 'lo'
as interface name. Before it passed correctly 'eth0:0' of the virtual
interface.

Added a line in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup-post, near the end
when it calls the ifup-local, echoing the variable of ${DEVICE} to a
file and all that showed up was 'lo'.

Is this a bug?

NUMA split mode?

Hi,

HP says that what they call "NUMA split mode" should be disabled in the
BIOS of the Z800 workstation when running Linux. They are reasoning
that Linux kernels do not support this feature and even might not boot
if it´s enabled.

Since it apparently was years ago since they made this statement, I´m
wondering if I should still leave this feature disabled or not. More
recent kernels might support it, and it´s supposed to improve
performance.

Could someone explain what this feature actually is or does, and if
Centos kernels support it?

Intel turbo mode

Hi,

is there a way in Centos to find out if the Intel turbo mode will be
used?

Using the 'stress' utility and checking the frequency with cpupower
tells me that a CPU is running at it´s maximum frequency as reported by
cpupower --- and this frequency is less than the frequency it would run
at if it used the turbo mode. All the other CPUs are at their minimum
frequency. I have verified that turbo mode is enabled in the BIOS.

Is cpupower unable to report frequencies used in turbo mode despite it
always says it gets its information from the hardware?

how to prevent files and directories from being deleted?

Hi,

how can I prevent files/directories like /var/run/mariadb from being
deleted on reboot? Lighttpd has the same problem.

This breaks services and makes servers non-restartable by anyone else
but the administrator who needs to re-create the needed files and
directories every time and has to figure out what selinux labels they
need. This causes unnecessary downtimes.

This is entirely inacceptable. This totally sucks.

LVM not activating on reboot

Hi

I've recently rebuilt my home server using centos 7, and transplanted
over the main storage disks

It's a 3 disk raid5, with an lvm storage group (vg03) on there

Activating and mounting works fine:

# vgscan
  Reading volume groups from cache.
  Found volume group "vg03" using metadata type lvm2

# vgchange -ay
  1 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg03" now active

# lvscan
  ACTIVE            '/dev/vg03/storage' [<1.82 TiB] inherit

I can then mount /dev/vg03/storage as expected

However on a reboot, boot fails if I add that entry to fstab:

'Timed out waiting for device dev-mappe

compile webkit

I am trying to compile webkitgtk
I downloaded the webkit source, extracted

CMake Error at Source/cmake/OptionsGTK.cmake:12 (message):
GCC 4.9.0 is required to build WebKitGTK+, use a newer GCC version or
clang

I downloaded 2.14.7 - just like CentOS 7.4 has, how can I be getting a GCC
error ?

My goal is to get the MediaSource package in webkit working. It seems to
not be enabled.
Is there a better way ?

Thanks,

yum repo issue

hi all,

i'm trying to understand an issue i'm having with a yum repo (it's a
mirror of the c74 repo).

there's an rpm in the repo (ibutils-libs in this case); but the client
using this repo says it cannot find this rpm (i did yum info
ibutils-libs --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=c74 to exclude all other repos).

other rpms are ok to use, so nothing structural going wrong (i think)

the repo sqlite.bz2 on the client (in /var/cache/yum/...) mentions the
rpm (bunzip ...sqlite3.bz2; sqlite3 ...sqlite .dump |grep ibutils-libs),
so i guess that one is ok.

i downloaded the rpm from our repo and offi

mounting an nfs4 file system as v4.0 in CentOS 7.4?

CentOS 7.4 client mounting a CentOS 7.4 server filesystem over nfs4.

nfs seems to be much slower since the upgrade to 7.4, so I thought it
might be nice to mount the directory as v4.0 rather than the new default
of v4.1 to see if it makes a difference.

The release notes state, without an example:

"You can retain the original behavior by specifying 0 as the minor version"

nfs(5) states:

**
Recent kernels allow the minor version to be specified using the
vers= option.

Centos 7 Mate desk top

Strange problem with CentOS 7 and guest additions in VirtualBox

Hi,

I'm having a very weird problem with CentOS as a VirtualBox guest. Let
me explain it step by step.

tl;dr: I can install VirtualBox Guest Additions and configure a
fullscreen 1280x1024 graphical resolution on a full install, but not on
a reduced install with a lightweight window manager.

Here's what I did.

1. Install vanilla CentOS 7 with KDE.

2. Boot to reduced 1024x768 resolution.

3. Install gcc, make and kernel-devel.

4. Build VirtualBox Guest Additions.

5. Reboot to full 1280x1024 resolution. ==> perfect

On a vanilla desktop installation, this works perfectly.

yum update problem - dependancy problem

I'm sure this is a FAQ, and a simple answer is available, but I've not managed
it yet. I've tried all of the RPM database tidy routines. I've tried
uninstalling the libblueray1 library but the ever growning dependency tree
was too big.

For a while I've been updating using the command

yum -y --skip-broken --exclude rpcbind update

which I though t was working, but the list of rpm's not updated is ever
growing so i need to find a solution. Here is the output from the yum update.

Error "corrupted or uncleanly shut down, renaming and replacing" in CentOS 7 clean install

Hi all,

I have installed two new CentOS 7.1708 (fully patched, kernel release is 3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64) as virtual guests, one is using lvm and the other not and both use XFS as filesystem. In both, I see the following systemd's error after a few minutes:

Is it a bug? Or do I need to change some option in journald.conf's file? Actually, I have changed Storage's option to "volatile".

Thanks.

gtk3 update causing havoc

On my lab systems, the automatic updates were failing because of the
problems with ipod libraries from EPEL being in the way. It turns out
that was a good thing, because when I "fixed" it, a massive set of
packages was updated, including the new gtk3.

These packages are the ones causing problems, I think.

gtk3-3.22.10-4.el7.x86_64
gtk3-devel-3.22.10-4.el7.x86_64

In the release notes, there is mention of the "giant icon" problem and
how to fix that. We understand that part.

The bad problem I see now is that Emacs and Chromium-browser, which
rely on gtk3 don't work properly anymore.

Dear Experts,

Than was my first reaction when I realized that logged in with GUI (X11)
user can turn off (and on) network interfaces. Without being in sudoers
file. Wow, this is scary to see on workstations I manage centrally. Even
though I did consider local user to be able to execute the command

flavors: after all local user can yank power cord off the wall).

Strange issue with CentOS7 on XenServer

well:

XenServer 7.1, the VM is CentOS7, with kernel
3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64 running in PV mode
When I upgrade the kernel (running with yum update kernel), after
reboot in the VM console it says "dracut-pre-udev[212]: modprobe:
ERROR: could not insert 'dm-mod': Cannot allocate memory" and after a
while it drops to dracut shell

If I boot from from an old kernel with the updated kexec-tools/dracut,
it's fine.

Anyone experiencing this issue?

lives on suse.com site (well, for all flavors of Linux, actually). I
remember it smelled fishy for me the first time I installed ownclouud on
CentOS using that repository living at suse.com.

any idea how to get out of this pickle?
