Re: CentOS 8 probs

I figured out where I went "wrong" with my installation. Because of the previous installation, when I clicked "Click here to create them automatically" under the Manual Partitioning portion of the installation wizard, it saw the previous installation and didn't jump to a default partition plan (when clicking it, no change... had to click Unknown, then select the LUKS partition and enter the passphrase). I was rushing since it was late at night and I wanted to get started on pulling all the data from backup.

I think several years ago, when I reinstalled CentOS, I wiped everything from the RAID controller setup, so that's why I never ran into this.

Anyway, I'm going to do the old "big /, little /home" that I usually do and hopefully all is well.

Reinstalled CentOS 8 because why not. Did have to make selinux changes, so there was some sort of selinux issue after all.
I've attached install instructions to the first post.
