Stephen says: July 7, 2014 at 1:24 pm A MATE respin already cos Gnome3 is a pos? Reply Johnny Hughes says: July 7, 2014 at 5:28 pm 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. Reply Stephen says: July 7, 2014 at 5:34 pm 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. Reply Andy says: July 7, 2014 at 6:02 pm 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. Reply Louis says: July 7, 2014 at 6:21 pm 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? 🙂 Reply hadrons123 says: July 7, 2014 at 5:26 pm Was waiting for this release eagerly. Thanks for all the hard work guys! Reply hadrons123 says: July 7, 2014 at 5:28 pm Moreover it smoothly updates from RC version to final too! Reply Johnny Hughes says: July 7, 2014 at 5:31 pm 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. Reply szlevi says: July 7, 2014 at 7:48 pm What do you say, what's the best approach to full v7: re-install from scratch or just run sudo yum distro-sync-full...? Reply Bucky says: July 7, 2014 at 8:13 pm 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. Reply Andre Gompel says: July 11, 2014 at 2:45 am "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 !

Reply hadrons123 says: July 7, 2014 at 6:21 pm I have installed RC gnome live version. What are those directories you are referring to, If I may ask. Reply Paul says: July 7, 2014 at 6:28 pm Awesome, just can't wait until this is out!

Reply Benjo says: July 9, 2014 at 1:59 pm How to install vlc player for centos 7 ? Can not find networkmanager-pptp support. Reply Kenny says: August 5, 2014 at 10:17 am 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? Thanks. Reply Akemi Yagi says: August 7, 2014 at 5:23 pm This is being tracked in bug #7451. Reply Tony D'Amico says: August 24, 2014 at 10:59 pm 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.
