    I installed Community in a VM. I registered the install and it did the first updates during the installation wizard. After I successfully finished the wizard I'll try to do a "yum update" I'll get this error:

    Updates for 7.6 have become broken. On all systems previously upgraded to 7.6 OK

    Attempts to just update app-base result in the same error... :-(

  • With CentOS 7.6 being released on 3 Dec 2018, would expect the immediate priority is to get ClearOS 7.6 out of the door...
    CentOS has released CentOS Linux 7.6 (1810)

    Not sure that the developers would consider the changes required for ClearOS to go from 7.x -> 8.x "trivial" :)

  • Hello Mick,
    The RHEL packages are nowhere as old as they seem. RHEL have a policy aiming for stability, and they back-port patches into their current packages. You will find PHP and Apache are fully patched against all current critical vulnerabilities despite having an old version number. Have a look at

    It is a similar story with the kernel. A lot of the more recent fixes and drivers have been back-ported into the current kernel. I read somewhere that the EL7 kernel is now much closer to 4.10 (I think) rather than the original 3.10.

    Tony has posted as I am typing, but the push at the moment of for 7.6. Personally I'd like to see it released into the community a.s.a.p and into the paid editions in the New Year.

    The change to v8 is going to be much more significant. For a start, RHEL have pulled OpenLDAP as their directory server. Clearcenter would like to try and take ClearOS closer to RHEL/Centos which means using the new RHEl directory server (389 Directory Server). I also believe they want to head towards a more docker containerised architecture if they have the resources. Following the warning shot from Micro$oft over the summer when (probably due to a bug) Win 10 could no longer join an old-style NT4 domain, they like to develop a docker/samba solution for Active Directory support, replacing the withdrawn Samba Directory (Beta) app. I am not sure what else in on the cards.

    Hi Nick

    Just as a Side note here:
    That was totally Microsofts Fault as they decided to drop default support to the smb 1.0 protocol. This was easy to get around though but took a bit of hands on work to do - ie add it back through "add windows features". We had that problem at work where all of a sudden all newly staged Laptops (a couple of thousand to be exact) landed outside the domain.

    Enabling SMB 1.0 still did not allow new installations to join an NT4 style domain. Only installing a Win10 1809 fix from September finally sorted it.

    FWIW, with ClearOS7.x, since samba updated to 4.7.1, you don't need SMB1.0 and more and can disable the the setting the Webconfig.
