    Nick Howitt replied to a discussion, Plex service stops

    Probably a Safari update!

    For Plex, years ago I implemented my own service watcher because any time it updated, it would not restart automatically. In cron.hourly I have a file with:But is has not logged anything in my current logs.

    IIRC you subscribe to Plex. Do you get regular app updates from them? If so, they could be causing the stoppage.

    I can ask the developer. I'm sure when I first installed it, it popped up somewhere. Where to find it is also in the app documentation (the sloping book icon in the webconfig screen).

    Nick,

    This request is coming often in the forums.
    After installation of Nextcloud, you don't have the possibility to enter the Admin pass or login as Admin. The default password is not entered or visable
    Could be addon in the webconfig, just like MariaDB in the webconfig.

    New info; not needed from CentOS 6 onward apparently.

    Nick Howitt replied to a discussion, Kernel clock ..?

    This is old (EL5) but they recommend not to use "divider". It appears this is just a boot parameter which you can supply at boot time or update your grub.cfg. Since 7.7 the kernel is Centos's untouched. I've no idea how to find out what is compiled in but I'm sure, with a load of googling, I could find it.

    Nick Howitt replied to a discussion, Marketplace Unavailable

    I've just tried going into the matketplace and it took forever. I had a look at "ps aux | grep yum" and got:
    I did a "yum update". This interrupted the the marketplace, but the issue then cleared.

    What do you see from:

    Kernel clock ..?

    12.4.1. Linux Guests May Cause a High CPU load
    Some Linux guests may cause a high CPU load even if the guest system appears to be idle. This can be caused by a high timer frequency of the guest kernel. Some Linux distributions, for example Fedora, ship a Linux kernel configured for a timer frequency of 1000Hz. We recommend to recompile the guest kernel and to select a timer frequency of 100Hz.

    Linux kernels shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as well as kernels of related Linux distributions, such as CentOS and Oracle Linux, support a kernel parameter divider=N. Hence, such kernels support a lower timer frequency without recompilation. We suggest you add the kernel parameter divider=10 to select a guest kernel timer frequency of 100Hz.

    VirtualBox ... the above section from the documentation would tend to suggest this may be connected to something I'm seeing, so my question is "what timer frequency is the COS7 kernel compiled to use? - and is the divider parameter implemented in the COS kernel (presumably 'yes' given it originates from CentOS?)
