Selling DVD image which include CentOS and our application

+1 vote

Our company make and sell some measurement system controlled by Server. There is no technical issue but we don't have enough information about license.

We will do the following,
1) We make the DVD image which include CentOS and our application.
2) Sell DVD to our customer.
3) Customer installs this image (CentOS and our applications) on the Server.

Question 1: Is there no problem from the view point of CentOS license?
Question 2: We'd like to know what we should do to CentOS community? e.g. contract, donate

Any comment...

I'm crosscompiling a native 4.7.3 compiler for ARM target, host is CentOS x86, using CROSSTOOLS-NG. It works on the ARM, but no default include path, cpp -v gives empty list and linker (ld) looks for crt1.o, etc. in current folder, no default library search path.

After reading docs, searching still don't know what is missing during build. Help is appreciated. See my build script below.

    export PATH="${PATH}:/xtbin"
    export CFLAGS="-march="armv6 -mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=hard"
    export CXXFLAGS="-march="armv6 -mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=hard"

We can permanently set hostname using hostnamectl set-hostname. How can we permanently set domain name in CentOS 7?
I found an article ( ) that recommended setting FQDN using hostnamectl. Is that the right way to set hostname and domainname at the same time using hostnamectl set-hostname command?

Running hostnamectl set-hostname will set the hostname in /etc/hostname but it doesn't change /etc/hosts. What's the proper way of adding hostname and FQDN to /etc/hosts in CentOS 7?

I use "yum list installed" to determine if a package has been installed on centos. In particular, I was interested in the "man" program, installed with the command "yum install man".

In Centos6, if I look at the results, I see that "man" was installed. This is good.
In Centos7, if I look at the results, I see that "man-db" was installed. This is inconsistent.

The result is that the generic algorithm:

if I want package X , check the "yum list installed" output.
If X is not listed, install it, otherwise assume it's already installed.

Is there a reason for this inconsistency? The above algorithm works with most other packages.

I am putting together a new mail server for our firm using a SuperMicro with Centos 7.0. When performed the install of the os, I put 16 gigs of memory in the wrong slots on the mother board which caused the SuperMicro to recognize 8 gigs instead of 16 gigs. When I installed Centos 7.0, this error made the swap file 8070 megs instead of what I would have expected to be a over 16000 megs.

I am using the default xfs file system on the other partitions. Is there a way to expand the swap file? If not, then is this problem sufficiently bad enough for me to start over with a new install. I do not want to start over unless I need to.

It seems that RHEL 7 will only support 64 bit. Is this correct, and what for Centos 7? Also the ARM info I found was the target is ARMv8 which is 64 bit, not the ARMv7 which is 32bit.

Any clarification?
