    A MATE respin already cos Gnome3 is a pos?

    1. Johnny Hughes says:

      MATE is available in EPEL ...

      But really, once you get used to gnome 3, even normal mode and not classic mode, its not THAT bad.

      1. Stephen says:

        I'm aware it's in EPEL. I've also given Gnome 3 a shot a few times now but just can't get on with it.

        Offering a respin with MATE rather than Gnome 3 would really please a lot of people I think. The decision by RedHat and now CentOS to switch to Gnome3 may prove their undoing for Desktop installs.

          You really are exagurating here ...
          Gnome Shell isn't _that_ bad and if you think it is bad, you should be smart enough to change your DE too.

        2. Louis says:

          So what you're saying is, by that logic, Gnome 3/Shell being chosen as the default could have been reversed for CentOS?

          Right. You do know that CentOS follows Red Hat rather closely, right? 🙂

    Was waiting for this release eagerly. Thanks for all the hard work guys!

  3. hadrons123 says:

    Moreover it smoothly updates from RC version to final too!

    1. Johnny Hughes says:

      The only real issue that I have personally had is that centos-release may need some manual love to remove some directories .. depending on your QA version.

      1. szlevi says:

        What do you say, what's the best approach to full v7: re-install from scratch or just run sudo yum distro-sync-full...?

        1. Bucky says:

          I think there's a FedUp act-alike which is in RHEL 7 but which is proprietary to RedHat.

          The plan is to add a free version of this to CentOS, but it will land a bit later, in the interests of getting CentOS 7 out the door.

          In the very short term, I think a clean install is certainly the safest approach.

          1. Andre Gompel says:

            "fedup" seemed to work, but eventually I always had to eventually reinstall from scratch.

            So do not waste your time: backup what you need, and do a fresh install if you want to be happy with CENTOS7 !

        2. Bucky says:

          Oh, PS: This is just my understanding from the mailing lists. I'm just a user.

  4. hadrons123 says:

    I have installed RC gnome live version. What are those directories you are referring to, If I may ask.

  5. Paul says:

    Awesome, just can't wait until this is out!

    Someone's birthday? 🙂

    1. Scott Dowdle says:

      I heard on NPR this morning that it is Robert A. Heinlein's birthday. Anyone else?

  7. Benjo says:

    How to install vlc player for centos 7 ? Can not find networkmanager-pptp support.

  8. Kenny says:

    Does anyone successfully use systemtap on CentOS7? It seems there are no kernel-debuginfo-* packages available yet.

    Does anyone know what's the status of these kernel-debuginfo-* packages?


    1. Akemi Yagi says:

      This is being tracked in bug #7451.

  9. Tony D'Amico says:

    I've been running CentOS 7 on my laptop with cinnamon for several weeks now. It runs well, but I do have a few complaints...

    vlc, not available yet in 7
    networkmanager-pptp, not available yet in 7
    chrome - not available, got it to work, but what a hack...

    Several other packages not yet available, RPM-Fusion not yet ready for 7

    Overall great job, I'm hoping the community realizes that this is available soon and starts to provide more packages through the standard repos and RPM Fusion.

    MATE is available in EPEL …
