With CentOS 7 just released, I thought it would be a great time to make a CentOS 7 64Bit server installation step-by-step guide, with pictures and everything just like the old CentOS 6.5 64Bit server installation guide.
Requirements for installing a CentOS 7 64Bit server
You don’t need much for this, of course you need a computer or server to install this on, and the only other things you need are a working internet connection on the server and the CentOS 7 64Bit iso.
You can download the iso here: http://centos.skarta.net/7.0.1406/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-DVD.iso
Chromium is the open source version of Google Chrome.
There are some none-open source stuff in it that has been left out, a good example is the Chrome in-browser PDF viewer.
I needed this back, since I like it. so I did some googling around. I found lots a lots of posts, and none of them worked. But when I finally got it working, I decided to make this post hoping it will help others like me!
So this will be a short post on how to enable the in-browser PDF viewer in Chromium.
CentOS 7 has been released. I have made an updated guide for installing that too, you can find it here: How to install a CentOS 7 64Bit server
Now that CentOS 6 has been released, I though I should make a quick step-by-step guide on how to set up a CentOS server yourself!
Download the iso
Download the netinstall iso: http://mirror.1000mbps.com/centos/6.6/isos/x86_64/CentOS-6.6-x86_64-netinstall.iso
Burn or mount and boot the iso
Update: I have not tested this on Windows 8, but it should work. If anyone does this on Windows 8 (i don’t have a Windows 8 machine laying around), please leave a comment to verify if it works or not.
Yes, this post is about Windows!
I had a problem yesterday, and thought I should post my solution since I had a hard time getting it to work and it might help others.
I have a D-link DGS-3324SR rack switch for my servers, and it had some random IP address on the configuration interface that I was not able to find, and I needed to get into the switch to configure some vlans.
I thought “That’s easy, just connect to the console port and thats it”, but then i came home to notice that none of my computers have a serial (RS323) port!
I then found a serial (RS323) to USB converter at work, the Belkin F5U103V and borrowed it for the day, but when i got home and plugged it into a Windows 7 64Bit laptop I noticed that there was no driver found for the device.
