CentOS 6.2 Release?

Postby pschaff » 2011/12/06 16:13:56

Signs point to an imminent RHEL-6.2 release. Bets on CentOS-6.2 release date are now open. :-)

Edit:

Code: Select all

# rpm -q redhat-release-server
redhat-release-server-6Server-6.2.0.3.el6.x86_64
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)

We'll see.

In the meantime, I'll bet that someone is bound to ask a question: CR?
:roll:

Unfortunately, by that time, the response from many people might well be "What is CentOS?" or 'I think I read about that in the "History of Linux" opening chapter of one of my technical books' (Oh yeah, that's right, books will be replaced by tablets by then as well !).

It took a lot to resist the temptation to start a new "CentOS 6.3 Release?" thread.

CentOS currently gets 86,400,000 hits on Google, is #8 on DistroWatch today, and is still on their Major Distributions page, so reports of its demise seem to be premature. :-)

That would not be considered fair game until TUV releases RHEL6u3.

Funny but I hope that this story will end with centos 6.1 since the story
isn't really funny.

Some 6.2 updates from Twitter:

Believe it or not ....

We have just pushed a 6.2 iso set and trees for i386 and x86_64 to the QA server.

There are 3 or 4 packages that we (kbsingh and I) know need to be built/rebuilt.

I think we can realistically expect to have the packages in CR in a week or less time.

It is not April 1st. so this is NOT a joke !!!!!

Fine. Then your post on the CentOS mailing list is not a joke, right?

The CentOS team sucks ... it took XXXX days to do 6.1 ... it is going to
take twice as long to get 6.2

My mom said CentOS blows.

kbsingh is ugly.

hughesjr is old and fat.
