UEFI Secure Boot Chain
The boot packages (shim, grub2, kernel) are now signed by the
new Scientific Linux Secure Boot key.
If you use UEFI Secure Boot, you MUST import this new key
into your Machine Owner Key database.
If you do not use UEFI Secure Boot, no action is required.

KNOWN ISSUES
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

MATE and Cinnamon
We have encountered some display issues with the MATE and
Cinnamon desktops as provided by EPEL-7.
The exact causes are unclear.

nVidia
We have encountered some issues with the
kmod-nvidia-340xx-340.102-3.el7_4 package and the 7.4 kernel.
We are working with the ELRepo folks towards a resolution.
