I have a woefully dumb question. When I tell my wifes laptop, with CentOS 7 installed and a live ethernet cable plugged into it, yum update, it fails saying that it doesnt see any repos. What do I need..
No, actually, I hadnt realized Google could do things that fancy; thanks for the pointer! No, and I can neither SSH nor scp over my LAN. We had a lightning strike a month or so back that mustve been right next to the house: blindingly bright, and w..
My wifes PC, running CentOS 6, suddenly quit connecting to the Net. Autodidact that I am, I fumbled with all the hard- and software I could find or dared try, but did no good. So we lugged it down to our favorite shop. While there, she bought a lapt..

Does anyone know a way to run a Scrabble program on CentOS? (I realize the obvious existence of Wine and of virtual machines; but my experience with both has been thoroughly unsatisfactory. So Id much rather get a linux-native app.)There seem to be ..
[….] I just noticed that my last attempt included this : [root@T30 ~]# yum install Pan Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror, kabi, presto,: refresh-packagekit, security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock Loading support for Cen..
