Mageia 6 LTM released

Following several delays during the development cycle, the Mageia project has announced the release of Mageia 6. The new version includes the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment, the DNF package manager is now available alongside urpmi and Mageia 6 includes live test media for the Xfce desktop environment: “The extra time that has gone into this release has allowed for many exciting additions, here are a few of the major additions and key features of Mageia 6: KDE Plasma 5 replaces the previous KDE SC 4 desktop environment. The new package manager DNF is provided as an alternative to urpmi, enabling a great packaging ecosystem: Support for AppStream and thus GNOME Software and Plasma Discover; support for Fedora COPR and openSUSE Build Service to provide third-party packages for Mageia 6 and later; dnfdragora, a new GUI tool for package management inspired from rpmdrake. Brand new icon theme for all Mageia tools, notably the Mageia Control Center. Successful integration of the ARM port (ARMv5 and ARMv7) in the build system, allowing to setup ARM chroots. Installation images are not available yet but will come in the future. GRUB2 as the default bootloader. New Xfce Live images to test Mageia with a lighter weight environment.

CentOS 6.8 released! – GNU/Linux

CentOS

25/06/2016 – Johnny Hughes has announced the release of CentOS 6.8, a community distribution which is built using the source code of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The new release features a number of important changes, including depreciated drivers and packages as well as new features. “CentOS Linux 6.8 is derived from source code released by Red Hat, Inc. for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.8. All upstream variants have been placed into one combined repository to make it easier for end users. Workstation, server, and minimal installs can all be done from our combined repository. All of our testing is only done against this combined distribution. There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared with the past CentOS Linux 6 releases, and we highly recommend everyone study the upstream release notes as well as the upstream technical notes about the changes and how they might impact your installation.

Download CentOS 6.8 i386:

Download CentOS 6.8 x86_64:

Note:

CentOS-6.8-x86_64-LiveCD.iso – The disk can also be used to install CentOS 6.8 onto your computer but without offering any package selection options at install time.
CentOS-6.8-x86_64-LiveDVD.iso – The disk can also be used to install CentOS 6.8 onto your computer but without offering any package selection options at install time.
CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso and CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD2.iso –  These two dvd images contain the entire base distribution. Please burn DVD1 onto a DVD and boot your computer off it. A basic install will not need DVD2. After the installation is complete, please run “yum update” in order to update your system.
CentOS-6.8-x86_64-minimal.iso – The aim of this image is to install a very basic CentOS 6.8 system, with the minimum of packages needed to have a functional system.
CentOS-6.8-x86_64-netinstall.iso –  This is the network install and rescue image.
One can do USB key installs by using dd to copy individual ISO files to a USB key using the device name (not the partition name). This will overwrite the entire USB key. Here is an example for the DVD1:
dd if=CentOS-6.8-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso of=/dev/sdb
