I thought I would try out the new version of CentOS. Below are some things I have noticed which are different from the older versions.


CentOS 7 x86_64 minimal install.


Make sure to enable network interface eth0 (Name is different in Centos 7)

# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno1677736 (Enable ONBOOT=yes)

or use

# nmtui  which can setup network and the hostname.


There isn't any ifconfig command.

# ip a sh


How to find what provides a command.

# yum provides ifconfig


To install ifconfig.

# yum install net-tools


Can show some system information.

# nmcli


Default file system is XFS.


Change Hostname with command line gui.

# nmtui-hostname


Install vmware tools.

# yum install open-vm-tools


Updates the system.

# yum update


Replacement of chkconfig

# systemctl list-unit-files


Update: Some need application that I think are need when installing Centos 7.

# yum install nano bash-completion net-tools wget curl lsof
