CentOS recently released its point release (7.4). I think the installer doesn't support this yet. Can anyone confirm this? Is there a new installer coming out and when? Thanks!
It is not supported in the Installer or on MapR platform yet. Slated for next release of Installer this Fall.
That would explain some of my issues.
I just rebuilt my single node cluster box... took a couple of tries, but got it up and somewhat running ... so far.
It would explain why it took down my FirewallD daemon.
And why I'm having major issues on my other box where I had over 1000 packages to upgrade and the updates were failing.
Appreciate you mention that, I guess we need to hold those updates for now until the new release come out.
The problem... 7.4 is out and is most likely going to be picked up.
There's a couple of packages that are out of sync where they rely on a library that hasn't yet been upgraded on Centos so there are compatibility issues.
I've gotten it down to 15 packages and here's the conflicts looking for an update that isn't in any of the Centos repositories.

Sorry for the formatting.
Note. This issue is from my Centos 7.3 server that is pulling down the latest updates.
I'm about to try putting up a MapR cluster here as well.
Oops! Spoke too soon.
The upgrades I've been applying to that server took it from 7.3.xxx to a 7.4.1708 release minus those 15 packages.
So I'm not going to attempt an install.
When we say not supported, what we mean is "it is not officially supported by MapR Support and shouldn't be used in production". It may or may not mean there is a known technical blocker. For an OS point release, it is highly likely to work just fine.
if you have a choice of OS, please always use the latest version supported by MapR. Always check the support matrix found in maprdocs.mapr.com before installing.
But if you're just playing around, and don't want to reinstall your OS just because of this, you can edit the version number in the /etc/centos-release file and the installer will let you through and install properly.
I may or may not have done this before :-P
So... with the CentOS 7.4, everything is all good.
Even if you re-installed 7.3, the upgrades to 7.4 are already out so you will end up picking them up. And that's where you can get hung up. That's where I found the problems... I had to hunt down and pull some rpms to get the required libraries. (This is a non-MapR issue)
Now waiting for 6.0 to go GA. :-)
I've tested it and changing the version (CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core) to CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)) in /etc/centos-release file works.
