centos7: looking for libwebpdemux

Hello there,

I'm looking for libwebpdemux.so, possibly 0.4.x. I had it installed on
my CentOS6, from EPEL, but now on CentOS7, EPEL doesn't provide it at
all. Anybody knows about it? Maybe a rpm rebuild would do it?

Regards,

Light-weight window manager, recommendations

So, I've mentioned that I've got an original netbook, circa 2009, and I'm
going to put CentOS on it. 32 bit. Not huge disk, old Atom processor, not
tons of memory. Any recommendations for a light-weight window manager?

Before I went to KDE, I used fvwm2, and all I'm going to do is use it to
read webmail and browse, read news, etc, so I don't need a lot.

VDQ Repos for CentOS 7

I have a woefully dumb question. When I tell my wife's laptop,
with CentOS 7 installed and a live ethernet cable plugged into it, "yum
update," it fails saying that it doesn't see any repos. What do I need
to do to?

Centos7 System Storage Manager: Device /dev/sdc not found

Hello All,

I 've gotten myself into trouble by running out of disk space.

Problem with IPTABLES logging message to the screen/console

Hi

I am not sure how to solve this.

I am constantly getting messages that should go into the kern/message log printed on screen - MOSTLY from iptables.
The messages are ALSO logged to the syslog files.

It still prints those message onto the console screen even if I am logged off (security issue).

When logged in on the console its anoying as I constantly have to hit CTRL-L to refresh the screen to get rid of those messages.

However it does NOT happen when I ssh into the machine.

How can I solve this that those messages are NOT printed.

thanks

list_add corruption problem

Howdy,

I've got a CentOS 7 VM that occasionally becomes unresponsive. There's a "list_add corruption" entry in /var/log/messages, included below.

This is on VMware. We have lots of other VMs which are running just fine. Only a few are CentOS 7 VMs, though, so I can't rule out some kind of environment issue.

It's up-to-date on OS patches, and running kernel 3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.x86_64. When it locks up, there isn't any indication on its console, other than it looks like it's waiting at a login prompt.

Using GIMP on Centos-7, problem

Wondering if anyone here has ever tried installing this

<a href="https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer" title="https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer">https://github.com/bootchk/resynthesizer</a>

as a gimp plugin in Centos-7, with gimp 2.8.16??

I find the installation instructions (for the binary tarball) are
minimal and whatever I do, it doesn't seem to appear in the gimp
menus, as it should.

I've used an older version (0.14) from years ago in older versions
of gimp, but how does one make this newer one work on C7?

I also tried building the source, but even "autoconfig" spewed some
errors that are greek to me, so I, for the moment, gave up on that.

Advice will be appreciated, thanks

claiming unsused space back

Hi,

I´m running a CentOS server in a VPS. Backups of the VPS take quite
much space if I don´t claim unused space.

Currently I´m using dd if=/dev/zero of=/mytempfile and remove that file
to claim that unused space. Any automatic way of doing a similar thing
in CentOS? I have googled for it but I have only found Debian commands.

Thanks in advance!

Headphones volume control not working in CentOS 7

Hi all,

I hope someone could enlighten me...
How could I resolve the fact that the volume controls of all the
headphones I try on CentOS 7 are not working, they are OK on CentOS 6
but impossible to make them work on my Thinkpad Laptop with an iPhone
headphones or a Marshal Monitor plugged with a jack connector...
Those 2 headphones work correctly in CentOS 6...
What could I do to get the same behavior on CentOS 7 and this damned
Gnome 3 ?
Thanks for your help...

What RH-like on a Dell XPS 15 (9590)?

Hello there,

I've just got a Dell XPS 15 (9590) at work and need to set up a stable
GNU/Linux system on it. I thought of CentOS7, but.. obviously its
kernel can't run on this hardware.

What would you recommend? Waiting for CentOS8 is not an option unless
it's a question of few weeks. Are there respins of the CentOS7 DVDs w/
more top-recent kernels? I'm know of Fedora 26 or course, and not
willing to switch to Ubuntu 16.10 at all.

Slow Samba

Hello friends,

I have a Gigabit network with few Windows and Centos 7 machines and I
noticed that when copying files via Samba from:

Windows to Windows I can copy files with speed of +- 120 MBps (I think this
is the max speed gigabit network can provide)

But when copying files from:

Centos to Centos I get only speeds of about 40 MBps

Windows to Centos 40 MBps

Centos to Windows 40 MBps

I tried to add these lines:

use sendfile = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY

to smb.conf file but got no speed improvement, (so I think they dont need
to be there, do they?)

Please do you

TeX Live on CentOS 7

Hi,

I just installed the OpenVAS vulnerability scanner on my CentOS 7
workstation. Everything seems to work fine, except PDF generation. The
'openvas-check-setup' script tells me that PDF generation works fine,
but whenever I want to generate a report, the result is unusable and
can't open in Evince or Okular.

After googling a bit, I found out that several users complained that Tex
Live is broken under RHEL/CentOS 7.

While I did use LaTeX a long time ago to write documents, I don't use it
anymore nowadays (just Markdown or LibreOffice).

fcitx-anthy request (for Japanese users)

Apropos of the discussion this week with the person trying to get Chinese
input going on CentOS, I filed a request for enhancement with Fedora's EPEL
to add fcitx-anthy as a package. Currently, I'm able to get it working
with the Fedora 20 rpm, but it would be nice to not have to search for it.

It's been assigned (I'm not sure how meaningful that is, depending upon the
assignee's free time), but anyone who would like to add their support to
the request can view the bug at

Still fighting the IPv6 client dying...

Well, we're still fighting it, and one thing I've discovered that I find
extremely odd: the IPv6 lease file. On my C7 workstation, if I grep -c
lease6, I see 5 leases; on a C6 server, I see 9, and in the last few days,
I saw my box - they mass restarted the IPv6 clients everywhere yesterday,
because a good number of systems had lost the client.

Can someone explain why there would be more than, say, 2 or 3 lease6's in
the least file?

OpenVAS: confusion with 3rd party repos

Hi,

I'm currently experimenting with OpenVAS, the vulnerability scanner
which was forked from Nessus.

I'm reading through various HOWTOs and tutorials, and it seems like I'm
stuck very early in my fiddling process.

All the CentOS-based tutorials I've found mention a third-party Atomic
repo, and here's how the installation usually begins.

# wget -q -O - <a href="http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic" title="http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic">http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic</a> | sh

Yet on my servers I have EPEL configured for my third-party needs, and
OpenVAS already seems available through EPEL.

# yum search openvas
...
openvas-cli.x86_64
openvas-gsa.x86_64

CentOS 7 + KDE: sleep mode?

Hi,

One of my clients is running CentOS 7 + KDE 4.14 which I installed for
her. Everything is running nicely. She asked me - more out of curiosity
- if she could use the "Sleep" mode instead of "Shutdown" like she did
when she ran Windows, so the PC would be up and running faster the next
time. I didn't know what to answer, since I don't explicitly use this
mode. Only on my laptop I simple shut the lid, which puts the laptop
into Sleep mode. But on a normal PC, I don't know if this mode is
supposed to be used.

Any suggestions?

Postfix fails after reboot

I am running CentOS 7 as an outbound gateway using Postfix, OpenDKIM, and SASLAuthd.  The trouble is Postfix fails if OpenDKIM and SASLAuthd aren’t already running and I have to manually restart these services in order.  My question is, should I modify my After line in the “[Unit]” section of my postfix.service file to read “After=syslog.target network.target opendkim.service saslauthd.service” or is there a better way to accomplish this?

vfstp and renaiming of files with ftp client

Hi,

I have a vsftp server and two users for up and download.

If user Alice uploads a file, the owner is set to Alice as expected
"-rw-r--r-- alice ftpuploadgroup"

Now Bob can login to the same folder and is able to rename the uploaded
file.

Bob can also rename an uploaded folder, but can't rename a file in that
folder ....

I'm confused, as I don't get why this is possible at all.

Some vsftp magic? :)

Can someone explain that to me?

Update of cloud-init in CentOS 7 Extras

Hello,

The version of cloud-init packaged in CentOS 7 Extras is rather old (0.7.5, which was released in 2014).

CentOS 7, NM, and IPv6

Hi, folks,

I and the other admin here have just been assigned a mission... here's
what's happening: only very recently - the last week? our CentOS 7
boxes, or at least some of them, will lose their IPv6 addresses, and
not get it back.

1. We're running dibbler on the same box that serves DHCP.
2. It's been working for many months.
3. The lease file remains in place.

Distribution of Commercial RPM

Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this.

Is there a location to upload paid for RPM for distrubution, ie a store
for CentOS?

Is there a discription of how to create your own RPM repository for
distrubution?

What about updates of these RPM?

Rsync Error: Centos Mirror

Hi,

I have recently been receiving the following errors when using rsync to
update my centos local repositories;

rsync: send_files failed to open "/7/atomic/x86_64/repo/tmp/tmp.HBjcIF"
(in centos): Permission denied (13)
rsync: send_files failed to open "/7/atomic/x86_64/repo/tmp/tmp.SWIH0I"
(in centos): Permission denied (13)

I have checked and the user that runs the rsync script has all
permissions to read and write into the destination folder (centos). What
may be the problem?

Any help is appreciated.

getting rid of hp c3180

I have a hp photosmart C3180 all-in-one and am well and truly sick of it.
It seems like every time I go on another printing binge,
I need yet another print cartridge.
hp-clean doesn't help.
IIRC this use it or lose it "feature" is common to inkjets.

What should I replace it with?
If I want a non-cloggging printer,
is laser jet the way I need to go?
I'd like to do color occasionally,
but might not want to pay the price for a color laser.

old hardware / minimal netinstall -> CPU fan control

I have just installed CentOS 6 i386 onto an old rack server (it's gonna be a
Bacula storeage server and is a 1U 1/2 depth chassis)

I did a minimum netinstall and so far so good. However, I have one problem.
The CPU fan is going at full speed constantly. Not a real problem apart from
(a) it will affect the fan's lifespan and (b) it's noisy.

I've done some Googling and found some help.

Azure Centos Images

Hello,

I was wondering if there is any plan to support an official image for the
Microsoft Azure cloud platform? Currently there is a third party publisher
"OpenLogic" providing an Centos image but I don't know who they are.

I found this interesting: amount of evil traffic on the internet

I've just done a little "study" (well, nothing quite that pretentious)
of the traffic hitting my router, that gets DROPped the router's
firewall. there is a surprisingly (to me, at least) enormous amount of
it. over about the last 3 weeks, it has dropped over 65,000 connection
attempts.

I finally got around to figuring out how to have the router's logging
mechanism connect to the rsyslog on my Centos workstation, so I can
collect a large body of log entries to review.

chkconfig madness CentOS 7

I have a couple of in use C7 boxes that were built with ntsysv and
chkconfig for some old packages that needed to start using init.d. (The
person setting these up didn't know about systemd creating service files
for older packages, so we're stuck with these as-is.

Differences in CentOS and RHEL systems

Hi,

I was looking at the differences between the CentOS and RHEL systems, found that tuned profile is different for these OSes.
I have gone through RHEL 7 Performance Tuning Guide to see if there are more such changes, sysctl settings change which are due to tuned profile and did not find any other differences
Also took diff of /etc/* config files on RHEL and CentOS installed systems, there are RHEL subscription and bugzilla references which vary

So, are there more such system wide differences on CentOS?

Regards,
Kumuda G
