RHEL 7 vs CentOS 7 VMM GUI (Kickstart)

Reddit - Sat, 2017-02-18 23:37

I'm using the Virtual Machine Manager GUI to test different features, and I noticed that on my install of CentOS 7, the VMM is missing the box for "Kickstart URL" when I select a Network Install for a new VM and expand "URL Options" under the first URL box for the OS.

I was trying to follow the documentation for RHEL 7.


I installed a copy of RHEL 7 to see if the Kickstart URL box was there and it was. I thought CentOS 7's VMM was identical to RHEL 7's, or am I missing something? I'm still able to use virt-install on CentOS 7 to install the VM with kickstart.

Mouse problems

Reddit - Sat, 2017-02-18 23:26

Just bought a new PC, machine came without an OS, just like I wanted.

Installed Xubuntu 16.10 as I normally would, but the mouse pointer is stuck in the top left hand corner. It is really strange because the mouse works the pointer just does not move, I can navigate around the screen and click and interact with objects. But obviously not well since I have to guess where it is.

I tried a live Fedora 25 workstation one the machine and got the exact same result.

Switched to a completely different mouse and having the same problem.

Mouse works fine in the BIOS, just not the OS, both nice also work just fine on a Windows box I have. I should mention both nice are wired USB.

I am completely stuck here any ideas?

Want to be a great leader? Assume positive intent

LXer - Sat, 2017-02-18 22:09

Their members care deeply about the work they do (often voluntarily), and that passion drives incredible innovations. That's no small feat, because open source communities are often collaborating in the face of geographic, cultural, and technological barriers that can lead to unfortunate misunderstandings.And yet open source communities are also extraordinarily resilient. Some of them have found clever ways to refocus their energies and eliminate sources of conflict.read more

  • Manjaro XFCE 17.0-rc1 released

    Manjaro Fringilla was a great release! Now we are proud to announce our first release candidate of our next release, we call “Gellivara”. It took us more than two month to prepare this new release series for 2017.

  • Vine Linux 6.5 beta8 (final)
  • IPFire 2.19 Core Update 109 Hits Stable with Python 3 Support and OpenSSL 1.0.2k

    After being in development for the past two weeks, IPFire 2.19 Core Update 109 has today hit the stable channel and it's a recommended upgrade for all those who use the IPFire 2.19 series of the open-source, Linux-based firewall distro.

    As noted in our previous report, the most important feature of IPFire 2.19 Core Update 109 is the inclusion of the unbound 1.6.0 recursive and caching DNS resolver in the distro's built-in DNS proxy to address some important bugs, re-activate QNAME minimisation and hardening below NX domains, and implement the ability for the firewall to check if a router loses longer DNS responses.
