CentOS-7 (1708) – 7.4 is released
Some known issues:
ip6tables where the iptables service fails to start - apply the fix: iptables-1.4.21-18.0.1.el7
- The version of libgpod in EPEL repository is different in CentOS 7.4, workaround:
yum downgrade libgpod.
Use VirtualBox 5.1.28 or later in CentOS 7.4. (old version is not fully compatible in CentOS 7.4
From RHEL/CentOS7.4, the size of the /boot partition changed to be minimum 1GB, because of significant increase of the initramfs.
- Samba problem, apply the workaround: krb5-libs-1.15.1-8.el7
Except in this case:
Samba share with sssd authentication is broken. A workaround is to downgrade the samba packages to an earlier version.
- At least 1024 MB RAM is required is for CentOS 7.4, Use at least 1344 MB RAM, for the installation of LiveGNOME/LiveKDE.
- The screen resolution is 800×600 or superior.
- Changed icon size if necessary with the workaround:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.icon-view default-zoom-level ‘small’
- For users of openldap-servers with ppolicy, before the upgrade, check this: https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=13750
- For users need rdma, do this before upgrade: yum install rdma-core && yum update
- Gnome is too dark colours, workaround: yum reinstall vte291
- VMware Workstation/VMware ESXi (SCSI adapters: BusLogic and LsiLogic)
The default kernel from CentOS 7 does not include the corresponding driver, e.g
an unbootable system if you install on a SCSI disk using the defaults for CentOS
workaround: Select “Red Hat Enterprise Linux” and “paravirtualized SCSI adapter”.
- CentOS-7 as a Xen domU in ParaVirtualization (PV) mode, an upgrade to CentOS-7 (1708) will cause the VM to not be able to boot.
workaround: Use HVM (full emulation) or PV-on-HVM mode
