The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard says, per /usr/local : Local hierarchy, that The /usr/local hierarchy is for use by the system administrator when installing software locally. It needs to be safe from being overwritten when the system software is updated. It may be used for programs and data that are shareable amongst a group of hosts, but not ...

CentOS is based on RHEL directly. CentOS 7 is based on RHEL7 and so that's the version of RHEL most compatible. Since about CentOS 5 (I think) they've tried to match the CentOS version numbers with the RHEL version numbers. So CentOS 6 was RHEL 6 and CentOS 8 will be RHEL 8. You may have to either do without the drivers or downgrade to Cent OS 6. If it's on ...

You can use showmount -e <server> for some aspects of #3. When the exports are simple, it would at least suggest that a directory (or perhaps a parent of such a directory) is exported. # showmount -e server /export (everyone) For #2, I'm not sure what you're looking for. If you're using NFSv3, you'll be looking for ...

For 3) you probably want to use showmount -e remote_nfs_server which shows if remote_nfs_server has exported anything. And for 2) if you don't want to use a shubshell and know if the remote server runs NFSv3 or NFSv4 and if TCP or UDP, you could query for that specifically with rpcinfo: rpcinfo -u remote_nfs_server nfs 3 for NFSv3 via UDP and rpcinfo -t ...

Circular dependencies are usually resolved by picking one of the RPM's in question and just doing a --nodeps --force on the install then proceeding onto the other one. I've read elsewhere that you can just give both files to rpm at the same time and that will work around it. Never done that myself, though.

It appears that the VNC server is pushing the X Window selection to the clients clipboard. The X Window selection gets updated whenever you select text. In your case this was done by selecting the text in the address bar of your browser, the vnc server then copied this into your client clipboard which overwrote your local clipboard. The act of deleting the ...

If it is only used by a local user then I think that there is no point in keeping it in /usr/bin. This also makes it safer to access. Link posted by you also says that it is as per FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard).

You could try yum's shell to carry out the change as one transaction:- # yum shell > > remove <package> > repo disable <repo ID of IUS> > install <package> > run Alternatively, if your yum is modern enough, you could use it's swap command.

If it's hanging just because of a problem with a setting made within GNOME you might try logging in on one of the tty's (CTRL+ALT+F1) as root, mv'ing the user's home directory to something else (e.g "username.old") then re-creating it, giving that user ownership on that home directory. When that user logs into GNOME again, it should re-create his profile ...

Try: Downloading Yum for CentOS 7. rpm -ivh yum-* from the save location. Reissue yum update. If it still complains, you need some version of element-tree-x86_64. Repeat number 2 with element-tree.

The closest thing I've found to Gentoo's etc-update is rpmconf: # yum install -y rpmconf # rpmconf -a Configuration file `/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.25-5.b18.fc21.x86_64/jre/lib/security/US_export_policy.jar' -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 620 Oct 2 16:38 ...

You can take a look at nfstrace tool on github: (https://github.com/epam/nfstrace). It traces all captured NFSv3/NFSv4 procedures.
