Sorry, I wasn't clear, and I apologize.  My point is that the tutorial,
which at least judging from my experience, won't work in 7, is detailed and
helpful for both novice and the more experienced. In contrast, the upstream
seems as if they basically paid someone to dress up "read the man page," in
10 pages.

Again, apologies.  Some mental shorthand on my part, as I was recently
using that article in a work situation.
I meant this one.


Which I suppose you can call it cut and paste. Now, I did, for my own
knowledge, see if I could get that to work on CentOS-7, but I couldn't.

I don't know how much knowledge the OP has or doesn't have.  I don't think
it's unreasonable to expect instructions to include examples and commands,
but we're now very much outside the scope of this thread. :)

I wasn't clear.  My point, in one sentence is that I don't consider the RH
documentation very good, and a tutorial for CentOS 7, written in the style
of the tutorial to which I link, would be far more helpful.
