A small picture say sometimes more than a long sentence …
A MATE respin already cos Gnome3 is a pos?
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.
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.
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!
Moreover it smoothly updates from RC version to final too!
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.
What do you say, what’s the best approach to full v7: re-install from scratch or just run sudo yum distro-sync-full…?
sudo yum distro-sync-full
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.
“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 !
Oh, PS: This is just my understanding from the mailing lists. I’m just a user.
I have installed RC gnome live version. What are those directories you are referring to, If I may ask.
Awesome, just can’t wait until this is out!
Someone’s birthday? 🙂
I heard on NPR this morning that it is Robert A. Heinlein’s birthday. Anyone else?
How to install vlc player for centos 7 ? Can not find networkmanager-pptp support.
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?
This is being tracked in bug #7451.
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.
