The new version, openSUSE Leap 42.3, is a conservative update to the Leap series, introducing mostly minor fixed and package updates. “The release of Leap 42.3 provides adopters a reliable server operating system for deploying IT services in physical, virtual or cloud environments. Leap’s third edition of the 42 series has more than 10,000 packages and offers stability-minded users a refresh and hardware enablement release. The release is powered by the same Linux 4.4 Long-Term-Support (LTS) kernel found in the previous Leap edition. Leap 42.3 continues to use KDE’s Long-Term-Support release 5.8 as the default desktop selection while also offering GNOME 3.20, the same as used by SUSE Linux Enterprise. A variety of additional desktops is available in the installer through the newly designed desktop selection.

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed for x86 32 bit

After the team’s decision does not want to support the x86 32 bit architecture for OpenSUSE Leap, many users today are at the mercy of the waves. The least painful solution concerns the unstable branch of the distribution.  Ladies and gentlemen, you have the possibility to use OpenSUSE tumbleweed even on computers that have the x86 32-bit processors.

Download DVD Installation – i586

Download Network Installation – i586

Download GNOME Live CD -i686

Download KDE Live CD – i686

Download Rescue CD – i686

As a starting base, Tumbleweed is not suitable for professional use, being a rolling release. With some passage we could choose the most coherent way to have a stability similar to leap, transforming the system into a rolling half-release. So to realize the transformation, I am happy to introduce you two really interesting steps to be able to configure the system in a more stable way.
Launching from the terminal under root the command:
# zypper al ´kernel-version´
You will have the possibility to block the specific package you want, in our example a specific version of the kernel, then instead of version we will write the correct version of the kernel.                                                                   From this moment on, any future updates will not change the current version of your kernel. Obviously never forgetting that using tumbleweed we would always have a system that requires so many upgrades.                    If we choose to block the kernel, we can proceed with the recommended package updates for packages already installed in the system by launching from the terminal under root the command:
# zypper inr
In this way we will always be able to update the system with an effective method, keeping the system lean, clean and very stable like a rock solid.
If not, we will not have to launch the two commands previously illustrated but it will be enough to launch the command under root:
# zypper dup
And we will perform the classic upgrade of the distribution, will update all the packages of the system, including the kernel, and in this way we the full potentials of the rolling release.

Ubuntu 17.04 “Zesty Zapus” Released

Adam Conrad has announced the release of Ubuntu 17.04. The latest release of Ubuntu features nine months of support and security updates. The new release includes version 4.10 of the Linux kernel as well as driverless printing to supported devices. Support for 32-bit PowerPC computers has been dropped and new installations will, by default, be set up using a swap file instead of a swap partition for added flexibility. “Under the hood, there have been updates to many core packages, including a new 4.10-based kernel, and much more. Ubuntu Desktop has seen incremental improvements, with newer versions of GTK+ and Qt, updates to major packages like Firefox and LibreOffice, and stability improvements to Unity. Ubuntu Server 17.04 includes the Ocata release of OpenStack, alongside deployment and management tools that save DevOps teams time when deploying distributed applications – whether on private clouds, public clouds, x86, ARM, or POWER servers, zSystem mainframes, or on developer laptops.

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.

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

xenial_xerus-release-date

Canonical has announced the availability of Ubuntu 16.04. The new version of Ubuntu is a long term support release, meaning it will receive security updates for the next five years. Some of the big changes in this release include support for the “snap” package format; Snappy packages can be installed alongside traditional Deb packages. Python 2 is no longer installed by default, but can be found in the distribution’s software repositories. This release is the first to feature built-in ZFS support. “Ubuntu 16.04 LTS introduces a new application format, the ‘snap’, which can be installed alongside traditional Deb packages. These two packaging formats live quite comfortably next to one another and enable Ubuntu to maintain its existing processes for development and updates.
