CentOS 5.2에서 5.3으로의 업데이트시 발생 가능한 문제는 "4. 알려진 이슈들" 에서 확인 가능합니다.
We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5.3 for the i386
and x86_64 Architectures.
CentOS-5.3 is based on the upstream release EL 5.3.0, 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. And the option to
further enable external repositories at install time is now available in the installer.
This is just an announcement email, not the release notes. The Release Notes for
CentOS-5.3 can be found on-line at : http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.3
and everyone is encouraged to look through them once. Also worth browsing through at
the CentOS FAQ's at http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ
Upgrading from CentOS-5.2 ( or CentOS-5.0 / 5.1 ):
If you are already running CentOS-5.2 or an older CentOS-5 distro, 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-5.3,
run : 'rpm -q centos-release' and that should return: 'centos-release-5-3.el5.centos.1'
Upgrading from CentOS-2.1 or CentOS-3.x or CentOS-4.x:
The only recommended way to update from an earlier version of CentOS ( Version < 5 )
is to download and run a fresh install. In some cases,
running the installer with the 'upgradeany' option might also achieve the desired results,
however you are strongly recommended to look at the CentOS Wiki where hints and notes
about potential upgrade paths from CentOS-4/3/2.1 to CentOS-5 are provided.
Downloading CentOS-5.3 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 bandiwdth bills, in most cases you will
find its also the fastest means to download the distro. There are present over a thousand
people already seeding CentOS-5.3 and its possible to get upto 100mbps downloads
via these torrents.
-- Via BitTorrent :
-- 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,
and 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 dont need to waste time looking for a sync'd mirror )
The distro release notes are only available online at
The release notes include important changelog info as well as notes about
the installer and outcomes from test situations which the centos-qa team
worked through. Its considered essential reading.
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, including the translation teams,
the qa team, the CentOS Developers and all the users out there.
I would also like to thank all the users for their patience and help!
