NethServer 6.10 is coming!

… just one day after CentOS 6.10 release :wink:

RC1 ISO release

The NethSever 6.10 rc1 ISO is ready for testing and it’s available at Sourceforge:

The ISO is built on CentOS 6.10 minimal ISO, and contains additional NethServer packages from 6.9.

I installed it successfully on a VM, following the unattended and interactive install methods. After reboot everything worked as expected, from First configuration Wizard to installation of additional modules from the Software Center.

Upgrading

Upgrading existing machine is really simple (and already tested in few servers!).

  1. Make sure the system is fully updated:

    yum clean all && yum update
    
  2. Install nethserver-release from testing:

    yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-release
    
  3. Update the whole system:

    yum clean all && yum update
    
  4. Check nothing breaks!

Who wants to help? Any upgrade of existing 6.9 system is very appreciated :smile:

@stll0 do we need to recompile some kernel module?

Come on, no one want to try this RC? :sob:

I updated an old 6.9 test VM and it worked without errors, applications seem to be ok so far.

It’s still july, @giacomo, be kind…
for some people it’s tan-time (beach or boat), sea, mountain, … Holiday.

For me it’s led-color tanning (energy saving lamps) so i’ve updated my 6.9 VM… Without any issues revealed (78 packages installed, with a new kernel too, 2.6-32.754)

Am I missing something, why would anybody still use 6.9 if 7.5 is out.


(Giacomo Sanchietti) #9

You’re right … I’m waiting my holidays next week! :smiley:

Thank you, this is very appreciated!

Because there are thousands of 6.X installations which need to be supported until 2020. :wink:
