Hey all,

Just wondering if Rocky (and RHEL 8/9 for that matter) automatically sets randomized MAC addresses for WiFi on a workstation laptop?

I want to have it randomize every time the WiFi connection is off, and restored. (Either shut down, aeroplane mode, sleep etc).

Is this generally enabled by default or something that needs to be manually configured?

Thanks in advance.

Hello. I am trying to install cinnamon desktop on top of Rocky Linux 8.6.

I am following this guide https://www.addictivetips.com/ubuntu-linux-tips/install-the-cinnamon-desktop-on-rocky-linux-8-5/

But it seems that python3-setproctitle is not available when I try to install lightdm-settings

Also, desktop-backgrounds-basic when trying to install slick-greeter-cinnamon.

Please advise me.

And thank you.

I'm looking for a thorough guide to install and setup/configure Samba share on Rocky Linux that would be accessed by Windows clients, with Rocky Linux having SELinux enabled.
I've found some guides some assume public shares. However I want to setup a secure share.

I've got to a stage where I'm able to access the Samba share with a specific user from Windows.
But even though I've given the rw permissions it will not allow rw to the share.
Also secondary issue is Samba complaining about not been able to write some log files. I manually created the files with the right rw permissions still returns the error upon status check.

Hello good people of r/RockyLinux!

I would like to know if Rocky Linux 8 will be able to support my cpu + gpu. I run an Intel Core i9 12900k(Alder Lake) and an RTX 3090. I an interested in using Rocky Linux as my desktop OS for some machine learning/data science side projects along with some college projects I would have to do. I know that Rocky uses Kernel 4.8 so me having some newer hardware brought some red flags for me.

I also wanted to ask if it is possible to install the newer versions of Python and R on Rocky Linux. I know it uses older packages in favor of stability(Which is fine and what I want. I can use flatpaks for newer versions of packages).

I have been debating bewteen Debian, Rocky and OpenSUSE Leap so any suggestions or pros/cons is welcome.

Edit: For anyone wondering why I am asking about the CPU+GPU, I was unsure about support since Rocky uses an old kernel especially support for the CPU as the 12900k uses Intel's Alder Lake architecture that has a different spin in the core layout with P cores and E cores along with a different hyper threading method.

I have the opposite problem of the user below. I have a OMV server on my network that's acting as our NAS. I can't seem to get Rocky to acknowledge the server even exists with-in the file manager, however, curiously, if I make an entry into the /etc/fstab it *will* mount the shares. And yes, I do have cifs-utils installed. Edit: I should also note that the Windows 11 gaming machine I have can see it fine. As can my Windows 10 VM.
