is there a way to reset a install back to first install without kvm/ being on site?
fenrus02
that does not actually make any sense. rephrase?

Has anybody gotten CentOS 7 running on VMware ESXi 6? I am having problems with the mouse even with vmware tools installed.
fenrus02
works in 5.5, not tried 6 yet.
Bahhumbug
Wamphyri: No, not really. If you have config management in place then in theory you can reverse whatever changes it has made with the correct setup. Generally it's safer and faster to just reinstall.
kaos01
is there a way to test if a environment group is installed ?
yum group list sort off tells you
but not very scriptable

How do I remove unbound? http://pastebin.centos.org/34176/ `sudo yum remove unbound`, `sudo yum remove unbound-devel`, `sudo yum remove unbound-libs` all do not work
kaos01
and the error is ?
srg
No packages marked for removal
No match for argument
It worked when I first ran it to uninstall, but I wanted to uninstall the libs and whatever else as well
         

kaos01
rpm -q unbound.x86_64
srg
Not sure why it's all on my system
that's..odd? it says it's not installed
Oh! I'm so sorry. I was doing `yum list` not `yum list installed`
I'm used to apt-get...sorry! thanks for the help
pj
hehehe
Wamphyri
is there a console based install for centos 7?
kaos01
console based install ?
sure chcukc a CD in ...
or USB ...
Bahhumbug
The text-based installer for 7 is pretty much absolutely useless. Just as it was for 6.
Use a VNC-based installed if you require interactiveness or use a kickstart.

hi - i'm following a tutorial that mentions "systemctl cat" but this isn't working in centos7 (Unknown operation 'cat'). advice?
oniMaker
dkog: what is the context?
Bahhumbug
Don't use that tutorial?
oniMaker
try `systemctl status cat`
what cat is though... I do not know
dkog
it is supposed to dump the service unit file
fenrus02
kaos01, yum grouplist -v |sed '1,/^Installed/d;/^Available/,$d;s/[^()]*//;s/(//;s/)//;'
or the like
kaos01
fenrus02 thanks, haha

Bahhumbug, c6's text anaconda was FAR more useful and usable than c7's.
Bahhumbug
And yet... still broken by design.
fenrus02
very much
Bahhumbug
It's been useles since el4.
el5's was tolerable. 6's and 7's need to be taken out and shot in the back of the head.
fenrus02
Bahhumbug, why do you bother with it? just use your .ks file
Bahhumbug
I don't bother with it.
I can't be assed to wasted my time with broken junk.
meh, waste
         

fenrus02
heh
Bahhumbug
Let's face it, the only reason the text mode is still there is due to kickstart and nothing else.
fenrus02
Bahhumbug, clearly
PryMar56
dkog, you need system-209 or higher. C7 is at 208
dkog
PryMar56: thanks... i'm just learning about systemd on centos7. is there a tutorial/guide you might recommend?
Bahhumbug
@systemd
centbot
PryMar56
dkog, http://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/
Bahhumbug
If you come across a decent tutorial that covers the version in C7 let me know and I'll update the trigger.
fenrus02
Bahhumbug, lnnrt's blog
it's basically the authoritative source on info. the man pages are lacking details that the blog provides
Bahhumbug
If you come across a tutorial not written by a meglomanic and filled condescension, ego and spite let me know.
filled _with_.
Meh, I need dinner.
fenrus02
Bahhumbug, oh man. you do know that unicorns dont exist, right?
dkog
if I have a script that I want to start automatically on boot, but it doesn't have any kind of systemd or SysVinit associated helper, what's the simplest/best way?
PryMar56
dkog, next release of C7 has systemd-219, which ubuntu Vivid 15.04 has now
fenrus02
dkog, write a .service file for it? that's simple. takes about 8-10 lines.
Bahhumbug
Write a systemd unit file or stuff it in rc.local.
dkog
OK yeah I was thinking I would need to write a .service file, that's why I was poking around systemctl cat and wondering why I couldn't see the other ones
fenrus02
PryMar56, "next release of c7" ? where is your source of that info?
Bahhumbug
The 7.2 release notes.
fenrus02
hm. dark under my rock. didnt see that it was releasd.
Bahhumbug
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7-Beta/html-single/7.2_Release_Notes/index.html
The release notes are in pathetic shape, even for a beta. Lots of things not mentioned.
dkog
would I put mine in "user" as opposed to "system"? and why are some in /lib/systemd/system/ and others in /etc/systemd/system/ ?
Bahhumbug
etc overrides lib and won't get touched durning an update.
fenrus02
dkog, distro provided .service files live in /lib/systemd/ -- user managed live in /etc/systemd/
for exactly why Bahhumbug mentioned.
lets you do things like "systemctl mask NetworkManager" and have it actually work correctly.
Bahhumbug
Actually... James Hogarth wrote something on systemd.
(Action) goes to find it
Meh, firewalld and networkmangler.
I thought he did something on systemd.
fenrus02
Bahhumbug, need a blob posting on how to mask those services? i can write a blog just to reference that way ;)
DiscordianUK
I have a little Intel NUC that I want to use for a Media Station (bittorrent, dlna server)
How close is 7.2 to release?
TrevorH
RHEL 7.2 only just went into beta so some way off yet
DiscordianUK
i have an existing Buffalo thing but it's nasty
fenrus02
another month or so.
DiscordianUK
Runs debian but doesn't even have apt
alas acer announced the Revo One just after which can take 2x2.5" disks and an SSD
okay I best use 7.1
Bahhumbug
With the sh*tstemd rebase I suspect it will be longer than a month.
TrevorH
don't forget the gnome rebase too. I don't see that being straightforward either
DiscordianUK
I want to put a long term os on the box
I specced it up as best I could, Celeron N2820, 8Gb, 2Tb
dkog
OK so is this right?: I will write a service file in /etc/systemd/user/my.service, then I will `systemctl my.service`?
sorry I meant `systemctl enable my.service`
fenrus02
well, {enable,start,status} in that order likely. maybe not, but likely.
and the trailing .sevice is optional if you dislike typing.
dkog
and for the service file itself, what are some good/common things to specify for "After=" to get it to run at the right time? eg. I see "network.target" is used sometimes
fenrus02
depends what services are required for yours to run properly
TommyC
Hrmmm, does the bot by any chance have a list of reliable repositories? I'm searching for a VoIP server like mumble, teamspeak, ventrilo, etc. I've only got EPEL added on in addition to base and extras, but yum search can't seem to find anything.
