Default Lots of updates to EL5.x

hi guys,

looks like 5.7 just got released upstream. The rpm build and the distro
build services for the 5.x distro is independant from the 6.x stuff, so
it should build in parallel and be available shortly ( via the CR setup )

There are a couple of updates from 5.6 still pending - I just pushed
those out.

Thanks. So if we hear "grumbles", we know what to say.

Hi.

I guess there will be still automatic minor release upgrade via 'yum
update' working?

Regards,
Marko

Default Lots of updates to EL5.x

I was wondering why CentOS 5 can't use network installation via proxy.
I've just made a patch. Not compiled/tested yet. Does somebody want to try?
--------------------
[Request for testers] PATCH: Network installation via proxy.

/sbin/loader included in the installation media's isolinux/initrd.img provides
support for network installation via proxy. However, due to a bug in
mountUrlImage() in loader2/urlinstall.c , users cannot use proxy.
Fix this bug by forcibly calling screen for configuring proxy if the kernel
command line contains the string "useproxy".
