I am using RHEL 7.9 and installed mc with the following commands:

yum update
yum install mc

Options/Appearance menu item is missing.

Doing the same on RHEL 8.1 gives the Options/Appearance, probably it is a different version of mc.

  • On rhel7 I have 1:4.8.7-11.el7
  • On rhel8 I have 1:4.8.19-9.el8


How can I install mc version to RHEL 7.9 which have Options/Appearance menu?

  1. Fetch the src rpm for MC 4.8.19 (I don't have a subscription, I've no idea where to get it). This should also work: wget http://vault.centos.org/8-stream/AppStream/Source/SPackages/mc-4.8.19-9.el8.src.rpm
  2. sudo dnf install rpm-build gcc make aspell-devel e2fsprogs-devel glib2-devel gpm-devel groff-base perl-generators pkgconfig slang-devel
  3. rpmbuild --rebuild mc-4.8.19-9.el8.src.rpm
  4. sudo rpm -Uvh /home/username/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/mc-4.8.19-9.el8.x86_64.rpm
