This is just a warning that a package has been installed or removed directly using rpm command instead of yum .
This one liner can remove the version numbers from any string (providing they start with a hyphen and a digit).
I recently discovered that is it actually rather difficult to determine which packages depend on a particular package using the RedHat Package Manager, and I ended up writing a short script to list all the dependencies for a particular package.
Though in general it is not necessary there are (rare) occasions when it is necessary to set the MTU size explicitly, generally caused by issues with path MTU discovery.
A minimal install of RedHat 7.x does not enable the network by default (network interfaces are enabled when you login to the GUI bu the network manager – which doesn’t work if there is no GUI).
The latest versions of the kernel now rely on the BIOS enumeration of device names which means that the name of the network interface can change depending on your bus configuration (specifically where your network interface is connected).
When using X windows on a virtual machine I have found that the screen resolution is detected automatically it can often default to a maximum resolution of 1024×768 pixels.
Unlike Debian which prompts to select you location to determine the best mirror, CentOS will prompt you to enter the URL of the mirror server during the install.
If you are behind a web-proxy then you either need to configure the proxy settings or set the environment variable http_proxy first.
