CentOS 7. Did you know…?

This post is just a reminder of some things that you may have not noticed when working with CentOS 7. I’ll be updating it from time to time.

  • Remember those times when you had to use nohup with a command so it could run on the background even if you closed the shell from where it was launched? That’s no longer needed with CentOS 7, if you have a background job and you close that shell, the process will run! No more nohup needed.
  • You can use yum to install locally rpm files you’ve downloaded so dependencies are installed automatically. We used to use yum localinstall but now you can use yum install right away.
