Just wanted to say “Thanks!” to the CentOS team for their efforts to put out a 7.1 release.

Upgraded several systems, so far smooth sailing. Good job!

  • so I updated my c7 dev systems last night with CR… do I need to do anything special to get it to clean update ? yum update isn’t offering me anything newer and CentOS-release still says its 1406

  • I like John updated with CR, but subsequent updates didn’t pull in the newer /etc/CentOS-release. Prior to a ‘yum clean all’ a ‘yum list updates’ as of ten minutes ago listed nothing; after doing a ‘yum clean all’ there were several updates, which I’m doing now.

    Of course, once I did the ‘yum clean all’ I lost the information on which mirrors I had been using; John may still have that information.

    * epel:
    * extras:
    * updates:


    * base:
    * epel:
    * extras:
    * updates:

    But, my real question was the part about whether I need to do anything after using CR to ‘undo’ that, and I guess the answer is, ‘no’. just now my system …

  • A ‘yum clean all’ made my systems work yesterday – probably just from picking a different mirror on the next run.
