Re: [K12OSN] Heads up: CentOS 5.1 released

If you run "yum update" on a CentOS 5.0/K12LTSP EL5 box, you'll be in
for quite a download.

You can read up on the changes here:

    http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS5.1/


I'll get to work on building ISOs for those who do a fresh install &
don't want to have to download that many packages afterwards ;-)

If you like to baby-sit the update process but don't want to wait while the download completes you can:

yum -y install yum-downloadonly
   This installs a yum plugin to permit:
yum -y --downloadonly update
   This downloads the needed new RPM packages but doesn't install them.
   You can repeat this if there are problems downloading.

   Then when you are ready for the actual update:
yum -y update
This part runs fairly quickly with all the packages already available - and you'll need a reboot when it finishes to load the new kernel.
