The packages that will become CentOS-6.7, as well as updates completed for CentOS-6.7 to date are now released into the CentOS-6.6 Continuous Release (CR) repository.
All packages except for the CentOS-release RPM are included.
The purpose of the CR repository is to make the built packages optionally available to users who opt in while we work on the CentOS-6.7
install tree and all the CentOS-6.7 install media and images.
Normally the full release follows the CR release in 7-14 days if you do not use the CR process.
For more info on the CR repository, see this link:
If you want to enable CR on CentOS-6.6, use the command:
yum install CentOS-release-cr
You would then get the updates with the command:
1. sssd-common is no longer multilib in CentOS 6.7. If you have the
32bit sssd-common installed on your x86_64 system, you will need to remove it with yum remove sssd-common.i686 prior to updating.
2. The boost RPMs are built with cmake-2.8 and the configuration files produced cause issues building some source code. There are an upstream bugs here (which is likely NOT being fixed):
and there are related CentOS issues found previously:
If you are using boost to create packages, you can use the switch:
To build sources that exhibit this issue.
3. The satyr package from EPEL is newer than the version included in CentOS-6.7. The package from EPEL seems to work OK as well, but they are likely to remove it as it also conflicts with RHEL-6.7. We have not observed any negative impacts from this issue.
4. yum-plugin-downloadonly has been obsoleted by yum and that functionality is now built into the default yum package.
1. These CentOS packages are built from the RHEL-6.7 source code released by Red Hat on July 22, 2015. Please review the release and technical notes for that release here:
