Default Release for CentOS-5.7 i386 and x86_64

Any reason why 5 is not a symlink to 5.7 whereas 4 is a symlink to 4.8? Looks like the same applies to 6!?!

----- Original Message -----

| Hash: SHA1
|
| We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.7
| for
| i386 and x86_64 Architectures.
|
| CentOS-5.7 is based on the upstream release EL 5.7 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.
|
| This is just an announcement email, not the release notes. The Release
| Notes for CentOS-5.7 can be found on-line at :
| http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.7 and everyone is
| encouraged to look through them once. Also worth browsing through are
| the CentOS FAQs at http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ
|
| +++++++++++++++++++++++
| Upgrading from CentOS-5.6 ( or CentOS-5.0/5.1/5.2/5.3/5.4/5.5):
|
| If you are already running CentOS-5.6 or an older CentOS-5 distro, all
| you need to do is update your machine via yum by running :
|
| 'yum update'
|
| Running 'yum list updates' before doing the update is recommended, so
| you can get a list of packages that are going to be updated. To check
| you are indeed on CentOS-5.7, run : 'rpm -q centos-release' and that
| should return: 'centos-release-5-7.el5.centos.1'
|
| If you are running CentOS-5.6 and have the CR repo enabled, a simple
| 'yum update' will still move your machine to 5.7. But since the CR
| repo
| already contained all the 5.7 updates, there will only be a handful of
| rpms that need to be installed for the 5.6 to 5.7 upgrade. If you are
| not running the CR repo, we highly encourage everyone to install and
| run
| this repository on their machines. More details on the CR repo can be
| found online at
| http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR
|
| +++++++++++++++++++++++
| Downloading CentOS-5.7 for new installs:
|
| When possible, consider using torrents to run the downloads. Not only
| does it help the community and keeps mirrors from running up high
| bandwidth bills, in most cases you will find its also the fastest
| means
| to download the distro. There are currently over a hundred people
| seeding CentOS-5 and it's possible to get upto 100mbps downloads via
| these torrents.

|
|
| While torrent files will do their own content checks, and only the
| right
| torrent will register and download from torrent.centos.org - its very
| important for your own security that an md5/sha1sum check is done on
| the
| .torrent file itself, and ensure that only the torrent.centos.org
| tracker is being used. Sha1sum's are more secure than md5's. Whenever
| possible, use sha1sum's instead of md5.
|
| - -- Via direct download:
| Due to bandwidth considerations the CentOS Project does not publish
| ISOs
| directly from our network machines. However direct downloads are
| available from external mirrors over http, ftp and rsync. A geoip
| based list is available at
| http://isoredirect.centos.org/centos/5/isos/
| to give you the best predictable match ( and only lists mirrors that
| are
| updated already, so you don't need to waste time looking for a sync'd
| mirror )
|
| Some mirrors also publish DVD images that can be downloaded directly.
| Refer to the mirrors list page at http://www.centos.org/mirrors for
| more
| details Mirrors that offer DVDs are clearly marked on the page.

| +++++++++++++++++++++++
| Note about media:
|
| We have tried to standardise on the media between the i386 and x86_64
| architectures. Each now has the same number of CD images and the same
| number of DVD images. CD #8 on i386 contains no rpms, and is not
| needed
| for any install type. DVD #2 on both i386 and x86_64 only contain
| Openoffice langpacks for languages others than english. Therefore
| DVD#2
| is only needed when doing a desktop install, with the openoffice
| components selected with other than English language support.
|
| +++++++++++++++++++++++
| Sources and Debuginfo packages:
|
| srpms and debuginfo packages are still making their way to the CentOS
| mirrors and should be online by the 20th September. We are considering
| changing the way we handle sources and debuginfo rpms in order to
| better
| manage publishing them and to free up mirror space. For now there will
| be no change to the way things are running. Any change will be
| communicated clearly, and we will do our best to make sure it has as
| little user impact as possible.
|
| +++++++++++++++++++++++
| Getting Help:
|
| The best place to start when looking for help with CentOS is at the
| wiki
| ( http://wiki.centos.org/GettingHelp ) which lists various options and
| communities who might be able to help. If you think there is a bug in
| the system, do report it at http://bugs.centos.org/ - but keep in mind
| that the bugs system is *not* a support mechanism.

| A big thanks to everyone who contributed towards this release,
| including
| the translation teams, the qa team, the artwork team, the CentOS
| Developers and all the users out there. And a special shout out to all
| the donors who have contributed machines, bandwidth and infrastructure
| towards the CentOS Project.
|
| Enjoy!

Because the contents of 5/ are symlinks to the 5.7/ directories!?!

yeah I noticed that they've changed that. in 4.x, cd centos; ln -s 4
4.8 but in 5.x+, its more like,

cd centos/5.7
for i in *; do ln $i ../5/$i; done
