Re: EFA updates could be broken....

It has taken a while but it seems that solution was as simple as typing
dnf remove centos-stream-release-8.6-1.el8.noarc

There seems to be some items left over when the OS transition from the older centos to the rocky linux.

My system seems better as it went from Rocky linux 8.7 to 8.9.

Re: EFA future Roadmap

I am willing to give it a try?

have you thought about Oracle Linux 9? It seems another project (Security onion) decided towards Oracle Linux 9 rather than using Rocky/Alma, etc.

Just curious in our thoughts.....

Re: Upgrading EFA/Changing OS

Thank you for the reply -- sorry it took a couple weeks for me to respond on this thread.

I am appreciative of your post. As I have my system within a "hypervisor instance", I am backing up the virtual server and then make the changes per your suggestion.

Upgrading EFA/Changing OS

As I did ask in a past post about RockyLinux 8 vs 9, the answer was 8.

Is there a simple guide or anything posting to upgrade a EFA application from CentOS Linux 8 with eFa-4.0.4 to RockyLinux 8.x with eFa-4.0.4.

Thank you in advance,

Thank you for the responses. I have 227 whitelist email addresses.
