Tomorrow, I intend to push a change to mirrorlist.centos.org nodes that will have a (good) impact to CentOS EC2 instances running from AWS network. Thanks to AWS, sponsoring the required backend infra for this to happen, our mirrorlist nodes will redirect yum/dnf operations internally in the EC2/AWS network. What does that mean for you ? […]

Hi, As everybody is probably aware now, RHEL 8.0 was released earlier this week . Instead of publishing multiple blog posts here and then point to updated content, we decided this time to have a dedicated wiki page that can be used to track our current status : https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8 So now you can look at […]

It's not a secret that the CentOS project has always been running on sponsored infra since the beginning of the journey. While over the years we sometimes lost some "sponsors", we are always happy to see new ones joigning us . That's especially true for the infra used to "seed" the CentOS distro and SIGs content […]

When we consolidated all CentOS Distro builders in a new centralized setup, covering all arches (so basically x86_64, i386, ppc64le, ppc64, aarch64 and armhfp those days), we wanted also to add redundancy where it was possible to. The interesting "SecureBoot" corner case came on the table and we had to find a different way to […]

When we initially launched seven.centos.org, the idea was just to have a single blog instance that CentOS Dev and QA team members could use to give feedback and also report status update about the rebuild and testing of CentOS 7 : that was an easy entry point for people wanting to know how far we […]

As announced, and confirmed on the centos-devel list, next week we'll have a major outage impacting several services that are hosted in the same DC : due to some reorganization at the DC/Cage level, we'll have to shutdown/move/reconfigure a big part of our hosted infra for the following services : https://cbs.centos.org (Koji) https://accounts.centos.org (auth backend, […]

A small picture say sometimes more than a long sentence ...

Update : there will be "nightly builds" happening every day, starting from today (the first one being scheduled to start at 8PM UTC). The whole process will be automated and would also start to reflect those new trees. That means that the url to enter for new network install, and yum repositories will need to […]

Following our previous post, we are pleased to announced that the first (pre-release) CentOS 7rc tree is pushed. As a reminder, you can find it at the following location : http://buildlogs.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64-20140614 If you want to use it, you need to use the boot.iso media (found under the images directory) , start a netinstall and point […]

As we're all busy building/testing/rebuilding/QA'ing/etc ... the el7 rc tree, I thought it would be a good idea to also start looking at building the Live media spins (aka CentOS LiveCD/LiveDVD we had for version 5 and 6). The first thing was to rebuild the needed tools but that was easy to do (you can […]
