Sorry pal, it's me who stole your thread with XFS. I feel obliged to give an answer although which I do not have to but I'll. I've been so far away from CentOS/RHEL that I even did not know the difference between XFS and GFS which is officially supported by Redhat guys. And CentOS' guys kindness about giving us a chance to use XFS is really attracks my appreciation. Up to this was for my apology. BUT (a big one); People who prepare and maintain a distro have (and should have) many concerns in mind. Security is one of them and integrity is another. But in this situation, integrity is simply ignored (on the behalf of GFS situation because I backed down from my XFS related complains) Disabling kernel upgrades simply solves the situation but raises some other questions about "What else can be broken with security apprehensions?" I do not know which one to choose: - Absolutely not-working server because of missing updates - Maybe will be attacked server because of missing security updates.
