CentOS: CentOS 4 i386 and x86_64 release of CentOS-4.8
2009-08-23 11:07:47 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

CentOS 4.8 has been released

"The CentOS development team is pleased to announce the release of CentOS 4.8 for i386 and x86_64.

It is available on all CentOS.org mirrors and via bittorrent, see this link to download ISOs:

http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/4.8/isos/

This release corresponds to the upstream vendor U8 release. Also released in the updates repository for CentOS-4.8 are all updates through August 20th, 2009.

Work for the i386 and x86_64 ServerCDs and for the ia64, s390 and s390x architectures is in progress.

If you are currently using an older CentOS-4 version, using this command will upgrade you to CentOS-4.8:

yum upgrade

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Major changes for this version are:

* There is a technology preview of OpenOffice-2.0 included in the updates directory. You can install this OOo2 preview alongside the current OOo-1.1.5 version, or you may install the OOo2 preview alone. We apologize that this was not included on the ISOs, however it was not on the upstream ISOs and we followed that layout. To List the new OpenOffice-2.0 RPMS with yum use this command:

yum search openoffice.org2 | grep i386 | grep -v langpack

For finding Language Packs (if you want other than English) do:

yum search openoffice.org2 | grep langpack

Use "yum install <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to install the packages that you want, or "yum info <pkg_name1> <pkg_name2>" to obtain more information about them.

For these and other changes, please see the CentOS specific release notes here:
http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS4.8

and the detailed upstream release notes here (and in the /NOTES directory on your install media):
http://www.centos.org/docs/4/4.8/release_notes/

CentOS-4 Documentation is here:

CentOS: Security Notice: Attempted Break-In on www.centos.org
2009-07-04 04:31:52 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

A security notice from the CentOS project:

"Dear Users,

on Friday evening, July 3rd (UTC) we found a few suspicious files on the CentOS webserver. Upon investigating we found out that the files had been put there through Xoops (the CMS www.centos.org runs on) - and that this was possible due to a an administrative error which has been corrected.

As far as we can see there has been no data or binary injected into the system or taken from the system. The machine hasn't been used as a source for sending spam (in the widest possible meaning) either.


We have been able to identify the source of the attacks, but have not been able to find out if the files have been put there through a compromised user account in the Xoops system.

Although we are fairly sure that there has been no such compromise, we have enforced a password expiry on all accounts on the system.

wiki.centos.org and bugs.centos.org - though being on the same machine - have not been affected by this.

All users having an account on www.centos.org need to acquire a new password through the "lost password" system of Xoops.

We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience this might cause you and would like to apologize for that.

On behalf of the CentOS team,

Ralph Angenendt"

CentOS: CentOS 5.3 Review

Raiden's Realm posted a review on CentOS 5.3

"CentOS is a "Community Enterprise OS", hence it's name. It's designed with the business user in mind, both on the desktop and in the server room. Since the last time we reviewed CentOS, it's under gone some changes, and seen a minor version upgrade to improve a number of features. But even minor versions can have some much needed improvements. So let's have a look at what the newer CentOS has to offer."

CentOS: How To Install Qmailtoaster (CentOS 5.3)
2009-06-19 16:36:33 Source: Falko Timme [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Howtoforge published a guide about installing Qmailtoaster on CentOS 5.3

"Qmailtoaster is a project that aims to make the installation of Qmail onto RPM based systems a snap. All of the packages are distributed in source RPMs so building the packages for your particular distro and architecture is as easy as running a script or a simple command for each package. The RPMs have all of the needed and commonly asked for patches included so you can have a mail server up and running in about an hour. When it's all complete, you'll have a full Qmail mail server installation ready for just about anything. I personally run Qmailtoaster servers for other companies and ISPs who have tens of thousands of users on their systems."

CentOS: CESA-2009:1076-01: Low CentOS 2 i386 End Of Life
2009-06-03 13:58:52 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

CentOS-2 has reached its end of life

"This is the End Of Life notification for CentOS-2.

As per the upstream vendors errata support policy, updates for CentOS-2 ended on May 31, 2009.

It is recommended that any system still running CentOS 2 should be upgraded to a more recent version of CentOS to ensure continued security and bug fix support. Upgrade information can be found here http://wiki.centos.org/MigratingTwoToFive

More details are available from the RedHat web site at https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rh21as-errata.html

Thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible. The CAOS and CentOS projects, the unnamed upstream vendor and of course, the users who gave it a reason to exist.

After 5 years at the helm of CentOS-2, I look forward to working on some new projects both CentOS and elsewhere. This might be the last update announcement I post but it won't be the last time you see my name.

John."

CentOS: CentOS 5.3 Has Keen Focus on Virtualization
2009-04-23 10:55:23 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

eWeek posted a review on CentOS 5.3

"CentOS, the popular community-supported clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, reached Version 5.3 in March, some three months after its parent distribution, RHEL 5.3, began shipping.

CentOS is based on Red Hat's freely available Enterprise Linux source packages. The CentOS project strips trademarked logos and other branding from the packages before building them into a free, Linux-based operating system that boasts binary compatibility with its parent."

Currently it supports OpenVZ and Xen virtualization and is available for RHEL 4/5 as well as CentOS 4 and CentOS 5. This tutorial shows how to install it on a CentOS 5.2 server to control OpenVZ containers. I will also explain how to manage OpenVZ containers with HyperVM on a remote CentOS 5.2 server ("slave")."
