The ClearOS 7.7 Release is ready for beta status. To test this beta run the following:

yum --enablerepo 'clearos-*' --disablerepo '*unverified' --disablerepo '*plus*' --disablerepo '*testing' --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing update app-base
rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*
yum --enablerepo 'clearos-*' --disablerepo '*unverified' --disablerepo '*plus*' --disablerepo '*testing' upgrade
yum --enablerepo 'clearos-*' --disablerepo '*unverified' --disablerepo '*plus*' --disablerepo '*testing' --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing upgrade iptables initscripts cyrus-imapd-utils cyrus-imapd app-samba openldap


The following changes accompany this release:

  • Merge kernel with upstream (QoS changes previously release allow for QoS on systems without modified kernel)
  • Merge of upstream Samba (Domain functions now properly supported upstream)
  • DNSMasq merged with upstream (previously merged)
  • Better storage and networking support in user interface (still in progress)
  • Various security and bug fixes.


With community participation, we hope to resolve any issues related to this release quickly. Best case scenario is that 7.7 will release next week.

Note - If you have not initialised your directory to OpenLDAP before your upgrade, in order to initialise it to OpenLDAP you will also need to do:
yum install openldap-servers openldap-clients --enablerepo=clearos-updates-testing
or the initialisation will end in failure.

    Openldap added to the list of programs to update with a tweak to encourage it to start before winbind.

    Also app-base has been updated to add winbind to the list of programs being monitored by servicewatch.

    I've added app-samba to the list of packages to be updated from clearos-updates-testing. This is because some older installations do not have winbind started and it is now necessary for flexshares to authenticate.

    A new version of app-base and app-edition has just been pushed. If you've already updated to the beta, please wait a couple of hours for the mirrors to sync then run:
    yum update app-base --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=clearos-updates-testing
    You are looking for app-base-2.8.6-1.v7 and app-edition-2.5.2-1.v7. or later.

    Now the full upgrade can be done with:
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing update app-base
    rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing upgrade
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing upgrade iptables initscripts cyrus-imapd-utils cyrus-imapd openldap
    [/edit]

    Did the upgrade on my VM-test and no issues yet found.
    Upgrade went smoothly. WIll try test the individual packages where possible

    I am just pushing a change so that app-base pulls in clearos-release and yum-marketplace-plugin. When that happens you should be able to upgrade with:
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing update app-base app-edition
    rm -rf /var/cache/yum/*
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing upgrade
    yum --enablerepo=clearos-* --disablerepo=*unverified,*plus*,*testing --enablerepo clearos-updates-testing upgrade iptables initscripts cyrus-imapd-utils cyrus-imapd

    Note that if you use my kmod-r8168 and kmod-r8169 packages you will need my updates from here:
    kmod-r8168
    kmod-r8169
    Note these are currently untested but I should be able to test them soon. You can use the drivers directly from ElRepo (see below) if you want but if you have both the r8168 and r8169 NIC's and drivers installed you will have to add a file to /etc/sysconfig/modules such as r8169.modules and put in it:
    modprobe r8169
    Otherwise the r8169 driver will not load.

    If you use any other of my kmod drivers, you will need to uninstall them and update to the ones available from the ElRepo mirrors such as here. THey may look the same but they have been compiled against a vanilla Centos kernel like the one we are switching to in 7.7.

    Reboot after installing any NIC drivers
