Gssproxy Items...



I've been working on some systems trying to get kerberized nfsv4 and kerberized web services going on 7. Kerberized nfsv4 was working with 7.0, but with the 7.1 release it stopped working, the key difference between the two setups is that gssproxy wasn't being used with 7.0, but seems to be key with 7.1.

The problem I am encountering with Kerberized NFSv4 is that the directory will mount okay, and I can see it's contents as root, but I encounter "Permission denied" errors when trying to access it as a regular user. 'klist -ce' returns valid results as the user (including…

Windows 10 Tech Preview Build 10130


Hi Everyone,

Has anyone managed to install Windows 10 tech preview build 10130 as a KVM on a CentOS 6 host? I'm having problems that I haven't been able to get past.

I can get the CD to boot and the install process to begin, but Windows keeps complaining about missing drivers. I've unsuccessfully tried the VirtIO ISOs from the Fedora project. The images I tried were:

virtio-win-0.1-100.iso virtio-win-0.1.105.iso virtio-win-0.1.96.iso

I have two IDE CD-ROMs attached which appears to be working fine (otherwise the installer wouldn't start and I wouldn't be able to traverse the VirtIO ISO). The NIC was an e1000, but I…

CentOS 6 Gcc Is A Bit Old


gcc (GCC) 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-11) is a bit old. There have been major changes since then. I'd like a newer version.

If I have to, I expect that I can install from source. I'd rather not.

Is there a CentOS 6-compatible repository from which I can get a newer version? Does a standard CentOS 7 repository have a newer version? Does a CentOS 7-compatible repository have a newer version?

It's my understanding that to compile from source, I will need to keep the gcc I have. Otherwise I would have nothing to compile the source. I expect that providing the right…

Libvirt 1.2.15 And Kernel 3.18.12 RPMs Pushed To The Xen4


I have signed and pushed the libvirt-1.2.15-3 and kenel-3.18.12-11 RPMs into the xen4 repository for CentOS-6.6. These have been in virt6-testing for a few months now with no negative reports.

They should be available on in 30 or so minutes and externally as those mirrors update themselves against mirror.

Thanks, Johnny Hughes
