Question

PowerTools missing for Centos 9 ...needed for x2go gui setup

There is only a centos 8 offering for PowerTools … and being new here , I only see centos 9 as a droplet choice (not 8 or 7) . I want to install X2GO but I can not find PowerTools which I believe is part of the setup process. Has anyone successfully installed a gui on Centos 9 here and could you share either an elusive tutorial or your instructions ??? I suppose I could use any gui for Centos 9 but can’t find the specifics of others on Digital Ocean. Thanks

Hi @gittyhubhubhub,

In order to get PowerTools on CentOS 9 you’ll need to do a few quick steps. Having said that, before I provide you with them I just want to mention that it’s possible to use both CentOS 7 and 8. In the menu creating a Droplet with your desired distribution, on the CentOS selection is a dropdown that let you choose between the 3 - 7, 8 and 9.

Now onto the PowerTools installation. SSH to your Droplet and run the following commands:

  1. dnf -y install dnf-plugins-core

Once that’s installed enable the EPEL Repo

  1. dnf -y install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm

Now that that’s done, you can execute

  1. dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools
