I’m running CentOS 7 on my workstation these days, like it a lot.
At work our dhcp setup dns search for the domain containing our windows hosts but the Unix and Linux hosts I work with are in an other domain.
In the network manager gui in gnome3 I can’t seem to figure out where to add this second search domain, so I’ve been adding it manually to resolv.conf after each boot …
Got tired of that so i added:
in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno1 and did a
systemctl restart network.service
UPDATE 30th october 2015:
This does not work at all at my workstation at my new job.
I’m not using NetworkManager any more, not sure if that’s the reason though.
By setting SEARCH in /etc/sysconfig/network instead things got a lot better:
Enabling tapping support in Gnome 3, I still don’t have support for that at the gdm 3 login prompt .
In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf I got tapping support for my mousepad at the gdm3 login prompt by adding
Identifier "touchpad catchall"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "TapButton2" "2"
Option "TapButton3" "3"
The file wasn’t there, so I created it.
I noticed by switching to Fedora, from Ubuntu, my battery time got lower.
I suspect Fedora isn’t as laptop friendly out of the box as Ubuntu is .
Installing Tuned helped a lot on power consumption for my laptop:
$ sudo yum install tuned
$ sudo systemctl enable tuned.service
$ sudo systemctl start tuned.service
$ sudo tuned-adm active
There seem to be a debate whether powersave og balanced is the best option .
MScorefonts are still used in many places from web pages to word documents.
Fedora / Redhat doesn’t ship them by default, but you can download rpm’s from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mscorefonts2/files/rpms/ and install with:
$ sudo yum localinstall msttcore-fonts-installer-2.6-1.noarch.rpm

Spotify linux client is Debian based, but I recently discovered Local Package Factory, lpf, which is available from RPM Fusion .
# yum install lpf-spotify-client
# lpf update
Select spotify-client from the popup window.
