CentOS 5.2 Released

| Comments

One month after RedHat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 (20080521), the CentOS team released yesterday their own 5.2 update for CentOS-5. There are available new iso images for the i386 and x86_64 architectures, while PowerPC, IA64 and Sparc are planned and will be released soon. CentOS-5.2 is based on the upstream release EL 5.2.0, and includes packages from all variants including Server and Client. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with.

Besides the changes introduced by rhel5.2 you can find the centos particularities here.

Updating from CentOS-5.0 and 5.1:

Systems running CentOS-5 (either 5.0 or 5.1) will notice the update in the yum/up2date repositories and can be upgraded immediately by running:

1
yum upgrade

ps. if you will be upgrading your system live depending from the number of packages you have installed this can take a while. For ex. here is a sample output of a typical system that will upgrade ~ 190 packages and require downloading 257M:
