Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 was released a few days back, You can go read the release notes now. Its a great way to find out the big changes and enhancements in this release. On the CentOS side of things, we have been working through last week on getting the sources organised and the builds […]

As I'd mentioned previously, the fine folks of Applied Micro were kind enough to give us an X-C1 development box to see if it was feasible to build and run CentOS Linux 7. My first attempt through, I realized I hadn't been taking decent notes, so I scrapped most of the package work and started […]

ARMv7 With the growing list of easily accessible ARM hardware like the RaspBerry Pi 2 and the ODROID-C1, several community efforts have sprouted, working out the details for getting CentOS-7 built and available for the new boards. One of our UK based community members has made the most progress so far, posting his build process […]

As posted earlier today by Karanbir, the CentOS-7 Release Candidate Packages are available. You can grab them here. Live-Images - dating from today - are also updated and available. Please do test and continue to post your findings at bugs.centos.org.   The complete announcement can be found here.

Hi, Docker images are now available at http://buildlogs.centos.org/centos/7/docker/ - these will be updated nightly as the main tree is built and updated accordingly. Please use the CentOS-Devel mailing list for conversations and feedback around these images. And send all bug and issue reports to bugs.centos.org. One important thing to note is that please send feedback, […]

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 part of the preparation for CentOS 7, and with a growing focus around making the source easier to work with for developers and Special Interest Groups, the CentOS Project is publishing the git source tree used for building the distribution. This represents a bit of a change from previous releases and we understand that […]

Hi, We have been sending all build logs via email  for people who wanted to keep up with the build history in our CentOS-7 efforts ( ref: http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-build-reports ), we have now put the same info online at http://buildlogs.centos.org/  . You can now go there and get info about what mock configs were used, what […]

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 […]

hi, There has been reasonable interest in the i686 builds for CentOS-7. And we also need some i686 components for the x86_64 multilib payload. As a step-1 of the process, we are going to try and workout how much of the published sources built on i686, bootstraping the builds from Fedora-19/i686 and then rebuilding onto […]
