Console screen changed on updating from CentOS 6.7 to CentOS 6.8?

Hello,

I have several CentOS 6 VMs, I have updated the first one successfully,
but there is one thing I miss or I don't like;

How do I get the standard console with 80x25 back?

Looking for location of some specific settings in CentOS 6.x

Hello,

I have several virtual machines, all with CentOS 6.x and one so called
virtual server at a web hoster

my virtual machines (VMware) were all installed manually using the .iso,
some exist longer and therefore
were originally a CentOS 6.3, some are newer and wer originally a CentOS
6.6;
and this virtual server has been installed using a preconfigured image
from the web hoster;

on all this virtual machines and the virtual server several 'yum update'
brought them to same release, not CentOS 6.7,
as I havn't updated to 6.8 yet;

at the virtual server I find this

export LS_OPTIONS="--

ClamAV from EPEL

Hello,

just curious;
since March 3rd, 2016 everdays logwatch-mail
shows this:

Last Status:
WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.99 Recommended version: 0.99.1

on May 4th, 2016 I updated clamav by
yum update clamav
since then the daily logwatch-mail
shows this:

Last Status:
WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.99.1 Recommended version: 0.99.2

I guess, that it happened accidentally, that I just updated the day
before ClamAV did a bigger change;
as I had tried 'yum update clamav' several times b

CentOS 6 as DNS-Server

Hello,

it has been a while since I had setup a DNS-Server with CentOS 6;
these days I added a few zones needed for DDNS; this works
but in /etc/ I found quite a strange file, I'm not sure if it was in use
at the beginning I used this system as a DNS-Server, and after several
'yum update'
not any more;

/etc/named.root.key with this content

managed-keys {
# DNSKEY for the root zone.
# Updates are published on <a href="mailto:root-dnssec- ... at icann dot org">root-dnssec- ... at icann dot org</a>
