    Jason Bucotte replied to a discussion, Old (5.2) Versions of ClearOS

    Sadly I still have an install on ClarkConnect 5.0 that is causing me issues (postfix has started rejecting emails that I should be getting), so I want to bring it over into the ClearOS world. Ideally I just want a copy of ClearOS 5.2 that I can use as a seed to upgrade the whole way to the latest version. After a bit of searching I am stumped, so I was wondering if any one has a 5.2 ISO or maybe a torrent that will get it for me.

    Any help would be appreciated.


    Huge thanks to Patrick de Brabander for providing me with all these old ISOs, I added 2 of my own for the BOX appliance series.

    I cannot believe I didn't see this yesterday! The CF card in my clearbox had a 5.2 installer... I wiped it for 7.9...

  • (HOW-TO) ClearBOX 300 - ClearOS 5 to OS 7, Fixing the LCD Display.

    After having purchased a second-hand ClearBOX 300, I uprgaded to the most recent OS 7.9 release to find the LCD readout display non-functional.
    Hours of searching online I decided to see what 'yum' could install, if anything.

    Please save yourselves the effort and just
    The display corrects itself upon completion :)

    I face-palmed so hard lol

  • CentOS as it stands, may be dead. Petition to stop this action!

    A quote from change.org petition

    "In 2014, CentOS was acquired by Red Hat. This concerned many in the community, as Red Hat, the creators of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), are a large for-profit organization. CentOS is an open source, free and complete Linux distribution based off the stable branch of RHEL. CentOS powers almost 19% of all Linux web servers globally.

    Red Hat and CentOS both assured the public, the distribution (CentOS) would maintain its place in the community. They didn't keep their word. They've made an announcement that next year, CentOS 8 and future CentOS versions will be migrated to "CentOS Stream". CentOS stream is an upstream "testing" branch for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. (So is Fedora Linux - Why have two?) By making CentOS a test distribution, it completely destroys its usefulness as the stable, free, enterprise ready operating system for which it has been cherished by millions over the last 16 years."

    RockyLinux

    "Rocky Linux is a community enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with America's top enterprise Linux distribution now that its downstream partner has shifted direction. It is under intensive development by the community. Rocky Linux is led by Gregory Kurtzer, founder of the CentOS project. There is no ETA for a release. Contributors are asked to reach out using the communication options offered on this site."

    What are the discussions around this and the future of ClearOS being based on CentOS? Move to Rocky base?

  • [How-To] ClearOS kernel-ml install/upgrade from 3.10x

    Thought I'd post a quick How-To on getting the latest ELRepo kernel-ml installed, since 3.10x can only last so long :)


    and reboot if you hadn't already.

    Next we'll check what OS release ank kernel we're running, as a cross reference to not install an incorrect version.




    Here we'll add the GPG key for the repo and import it.


    Then pull the repository.


    Install the kernel-ml package.


    You can check what kernels are now installed by running;


    Set the one we just installed to default if it's not already.


    Lastly be sure to regenerate your Grub2 config, else things may break.


    EDIT: Thanks Nick! I'd actually broke my OWN config with the below command.

    '''grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'''

    Reboot!

    Unsure as to if 'awk -F\' '$1=="menuentry " {print i++ " : " $2}' /etc/grub2-efi.cfg' makes any difference in the long run, or any at all as it still lists all my installed versions whe I ran it. But hey if there's a *right* way, then that's how it should be done!
