Hello Philip,

In my test cases on Centos 6 or 7 I always run an elrepo kernel or build my own one from rewritten spec file. That helps me out to get Centos work as good it can be.

Personal playground, those packages are unsigned!!!

http://centos.cms4all.org/centos/7/ <http://centos.cms4all.org/centos/7/>

noarch git firmware
kernel ml aufs - oh I was lazy

- Get Multimedia work, all my videos incl. DVD, midi and other audio files are working
  I was given up after test many repros.

radeon (no new iMac 2015…hmmm)

mutter - gnome 3 windows shadow hack
netatalk - apple time capsule on centos

Centos 7 live on usbdrive to test it on different machines….

Fun with Centos 7

PS:hm… gstreamer was working with centos 6 damm

     Don’t hammer my virtual server otherwise i push them away….
