Dual-booting <- Installing Cents Os Server 7.0


Chris Murphy wrote:

In that case, wouldn't it be more precise to say: CentOS-7 doesn't support dual boot if you are using LVM? It seems to me to work reasonably well with ext4. Does it work with LVM if you have a separate ext4 /boot partition?

An Mdadm Question


CentOS 7.

I have a server with four drives. 1 is /, and the other three are in RAID5. I need to pull a drive, so I can test whether the server can read > 2TB drives. I've been googling, but don't want to screw the server up....

I think I'd like to 1. stop the RAID 2. pull a drive 3. put in a large drive, and run parted, and mkfs 4. pull the large drive 5. replace the RAID drive 6. fire up the RAID.

So, can I do it in that order? Do I need to fail something?

Problems With Samba-based Home-Directory


Hi folks,

I'm running CentOS 6.6 on my workstation. There I have a user meikel, and its home directory /home/meikel ist stored on a samba share on a server which also runs CentOS 6.6.

In the very beginning I added the mount options for that home directory into the /etc/fstab file which led to some problems, so I set up autofs for mounting the home directory.

The autofs seems to work for /home/meikel, but sometimes when I login at the GUI, I get error messages which look a little as if the home dir isn't available, I then also don't get my desktop…

What Causes Phantom Update Nags?


My Update Applet keeps giving me messages to install an update to a package I do not have installed. To make matters more confusing, when I actually try to install the package it wants to update, there is a problem with the installation.

Any tips on how to resolve this? Is this somehow caused by the repositories I have enabled?

USB Stick Query


I have a working CentOS-7 machine. I want to install grub2 on a USB stick (without altering my present system in any way) so that I can boot the present system from the USB stick.

Could some kind (and expert) soul explain precisely what to do.

If it were possible to boot other systems on the computer as well that would be an added bonus.

I did google for this, but all the sites I saw wanted to do more than I am asking. I also tried "sudo grub2-install /dev/sdb" but for some reason this did not do the trick.
