We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.10 for i386 and x86_64 Architectures.
CentOS-5.10 is based on the upstream release EL 5.10 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-5.10 can be found on-line at :
http://wiki.CentOS.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.10 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-5.9 ( or any older CentOS-5 release ):
If you are already running CentOS-5.9 or an older CentOS-5 release, all you need to do is update your machine via yum by running :
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-5.10, run : ‘rpm -q CentOS-release’ and that should return: ‘CentOS-release-5-10.el5.CentOS.1’
If you are running CentOS-5.9 and have the CR repo enabled, a simple
‘yum update’ will still move your machine to 5.10. But since the CR repo already contained all the 5.10 updates, there will only be a handful of rpms that need to be installed for the 5.9 to 5.10 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-5.10 for new installs:
– — 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 )
Most 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.

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, it is insttead a place where the CentOS community provides help to and for each other.
