    I tried the one with no graphics. Taking an ssh connection to the virtual machine doesn’t work quite well. The connection is broken after very short timeout. This can of course be intentional. Also the installing packages with yum doesn’t work altough internet connection works. So what I’m trying to say is that in my opinion this is a little too barebone image. Thanks anyway for putting it up.

    Thanks for your feedback.
    In my tests I found a lag for GSSAPIAuthentication in sshd
    You can fix it with set “no” the relative entry with this code:

    sed -i 's/GSSAPIAuthentication\ yes/GSSAPIAuthentication\ no/g' /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    and restart sshd
    service sshd restart
    On yum installation, instead we have not problems.

    I can’t seem to log in to the minimal x64 at all. Is the password something other than what is listed?

    can you install and enable the GNOME GUI front-end with this distro after it is installed?
    is there access to the internet enabled so one can install GNOME,KDE, etc?

    • Yes, of course. You can check about the available groups:
      # yum grouplist| grep -i gnome
      “Ambiente desktop di GNOME”
      “Sviluppo del software di GNOME”

      (sorry, but my centos is in italian language)

      After obtain the result, you install a ton of rpms with:
      # yum group install "Ambiente desktop GNOME"

      Internet access depend from your host machine (NAT or BRIDGE network)
