You have a gotcha.

This is on the desktop that I've been happily using for the last several years. I've never had an issue like this.
During the install process, one of the checks that Anaconda asked of you, "Do you want the reboot to begin with/without access to the network. I bet you missed it
. I did two installs and I found it in Anaconda during installation 2.
I am running Centos7 and it is very peppy. I guess their software has fewer assert() macros in the code, and programs are faster as they are smaller in byte size and path-length.
The interface is gnomatized
. I don't know if gnomatized
is good or bad thing. Centos6.5 had the old gnome2, this one has a gnome with the boring boot screen and the boring logon screen and the boring background. Centos6.5 had the gui interface to system commands. Cent07 has that cut out (gnomatized), or circumsized
(not circumcised) . systemctl now only available from the command line.
But, Centos7 does work very well.
I have a rant about the weather application. I am in a modern metric country, where we expect metric output from the integrated weather app. The app is minimal, (gives temp as °F without ability to revert it to °C.
That app is nowhere near the very good weather App from Fedora20 Gnome extension. I could not find where to set paramters to revise it.
Qt is incomplete, and missing some development tools. (code-editor) and qt-editor are two that I could not find. Qt-edtor works well with doxygen.
Not sure if we should include the DAG or other repositories. Forum comments were that the common repos for Centos/Scientific were two years behind in updates with no recompiles as yet scheduled for 7.0
I suspect that it will settle down with many updates from the repos to come over the coming months. I hope they work to beautify the interface.
Glenzo. Do you remember when the logon screen had a message area? That is gone, but I hope it returns.
(Useful if you have multiple Centos7 systems on one computer. via VM or dual boot).
