I don't have a running Centos 7 in front of me, so this is an educated 
guess: Is there a separate line for "parameters" or "arguments"?  I recall 
seeing a form like that, where the command went in one box, and the 
arguments in a different box.  The program put them together to create the 
complete command line.
