exim-mysql without MySQL support from epel

# head -1 /etc/centos-release
CentOS release 6.5 (Final)

Anyone using exim with MySQL support from epel without compiling direct
from sources?

I installed both packages below from epel:

Installing:
 exim
x86_64
4.72-5.el6
epel                                   1.2 M
 exim-mysql
x86_64
4.72-5.el6
epel                                    24 k

# rpm -qa | grep exim

exim-mysql-4.72-5.el6.x86_64
exim-4.72-5.el6.x86_64

The .so seems to be included:

# locate lookup | grep mysql
/usr/lib64/exim/4.72-5.el6/lookups/mysql.so

but no suppport builtin in the binary:

CentOS7+kickstart+thinpool = error/exception

Hi,
I'm trying to create a kickstart file that uses a thinly provisioned lvm
volume as root but I've run into trouble. I installed a System manually
using this option and this is the anaconda file produced:

part /boot --fstype="xfs" --ondisk=vda --size=500
part pv.10 --fstype="lvmpv" --ondisk=vda --size=7691
volgroup centos_centos7 --pesize=4096 pv.10

logvol   --fstype="None" --grow --size=1232 --thinpool --name=pool00
--vgname=centos_centos7
logvol swap  --fstype="swap" --size=819 --name=swap --vgname=centos_centos7
logvol /  --fstype="xfs" --grow --maxsize=51200 --size=1024 --thin
--poolname=pool00 --name=root --vgname=centos_centos7

The Problem is that when I use this as the basis for a kickstart
Anaconda complains that I need to specify a mount-point for the logvol
line defining the thinpool. So I looked at the kickstart documentation
here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart#logvol
There is says "--thinpool Create a thin pool logical volume. (Use a
mountpoint of "none")" so I went ahead and specified a mountpoint
"none". The result is that Anaconda now crashes with an exception.

Does sombody know how I can install CentOS 7 using a thinpool? The
features of thinly provisioned lvm volumes make them highly desirable
for database backups for example.

Regards,
  Dennis

kickstart partition without home

I am trying to finish off a kickstart file for a computer lab on CentOS 6.5
machines. I don't want to have a separate /home as I'm going to add an
entry in fstab for it to nfs mount /home from a server.

Is there a way to have it autopart the rest of the file system without
/home? Wanting to keep autopart for size since not all hard drives across
the labs are the same.

Matt

One nice thing about upstream 7

My manager took the "binary DVD" and dd'd it onto a flash drive... and it
booted. No problems at all.

yum annoyances

yum grouplist \*office\*

returns
Installed Groups:
   Office Suite and Productivity

But the *only* way to see what's in the group is
yum groupinfo \*office\*
With or without quotes around Office Suite and Productivity, it refuses to
admit that any such thing's installed.

a kickstart question

Not having much luck googling....

I'm working on our ks.cgi, and in the case that we're using gpt, I know
that kickstart can't, natively, use gpt yet. However, it is my impression
that
clearpart --initlabel --none --drives=$DISK
would wipe the GPT label. (Plus, googling, I find that initlabel is
deprecated).

Am I wrong about initlabel? And is there any point in using clearpart, if
we've got got to use parted to put a gpt label on the drive, and partition
it? Should I just make that line go away?

Initial Boot from 6.3 minimal halts with strange video display

I am using a Leveno M58 (model CTO7483 from 2008) for C6/7 experimentation
purposes.  The thing has a dual core and ~4Gb RAM with a (newly installed)
500GB HDD.  I successfully installed CentOS-6.5-minimal from a freshly burned,
and verified, DVD from and ISO image whose SHA has been checked and passed. 
everything about the display was normal throughout that process.

When the system boots from disk then I get the normal display up to the point
that the kernel is selected (whether by hand or automatically).  I can edit
the kernel command line and otherwise use the pre-boot selector facility.
After that point the monitor, a BenQ 17" LCD, immediate goes into what I can
only describe as a psychedelic snow field with two narrow black bands
surrounding a broader white band displayed at the top of the screen and a
single narrower black band at the bottom.

I have tried booting into RL3 by appending a 3 to the end of the kernel
command but this has not apparent effect on the outcome.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Compile on Centos7, run on 6 possible?

I'm getting errors: '/lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found'
and   '/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.14' not found'.
Is there a way to make a backward-compatible binary?

If not, is there a sane way to build something that needs gcc
4.8+/boost 1.5.3+/cmake 2.8 on Centos6?  I found the devtoolset-2
software collection with a usable gcc, but no boost.   And cmake 2.8
installs as cmake28 whereas the project expects the normal
cmake/ccmake names.
