Fedora, Linux and Stuff :: CentOS 5.4 Released

CentOS 5.4 Released

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009 ~ 6:13 pm by Mauriat Miranda

Well CentOS is officially released. Now the mailing list whining can be stopped … until at least 5.5!

For new installs grab an ISO. For upgrades (which is generally safe), just run:

# yum update

Or if you want to be very careful:

# yum clean all
# yum update glibc\*
# yum update yum\* rpm\* python\*
# yum clean all
# yum update
# shutdown -r now

Just read the Release Notes for more specifics, or the RHEL 5.4 Docs.

Please note that CentOS does not have a perfectly fixed release schedule. It is typically 6-8 weeks after RHEL is released. People wanting updates can follow CentOS (Karanbir Singh) on Twitter.

(As a quick note, yesterday Fedora 12 Beta was released.)
