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. 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: - -- Via BitTorrent : CD: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.7/isos/i386/CentOS-5.7-i386-bin-1to8.torrent http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-5.7-x86_64-bin-1to8.torrent DVD: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.7/isos/i386/CentOS-5.7-i386-bin-DVD.torrent http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-5.7-x86_64-bin-DVD.torrent - -- 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. Some Friendly URLs : http://www.centos.org/ http://wiki.centos.org/ http://lists.centos.org/ http://bugs.centos.org/ irc://#centos@irc.freenode.net
