Hi Brian,
When I do `dnf install centos-release-stream` and then 'rpm -qa | grep
release' I get


Am I supposed to have both of those?
I don't want to do an update if I'm pulling in both repo's and things
get confused.
I could have sworn that I installed with the stream image.  Is there
an easy  way to tell?  kernel version perhaps?

We've included much of the same content as 8.1.1911 in this CentOS Stream respin both for your comments, and to help us promote CentOS Stream as a continuous feed of new features.
