2017-07-14: We have release version 1706.02 of centos/6, which fixes a regression introduced by the "stack clash" patch (this made Java crash, just like on centos/7). The packages were all updated to 2017-07-14, and include additional fixes.
2017-07-05: We have released version 1706.02 of centos/7, providing RHBA-2017:1674-1, which fixes a regression introduced by the patch for the "stack clash" vulnerability. Existing boxes don't need to be destroyed and recreated: running
sudo yum update inside the box will upgrade the kernel if needed. There is no patch for CentOS Linux 6 at this time, but we plan to provide an updated centos/6 image if such a patch is later released.
We are pleased to announce new official Vagrant images of CentOS Linux 6.9 and CentOS Linux 7.3.1611 for x86_64, featuring updated packages to 2 Juli 2017. This release also includes an updated kernel with important security fixes.
config.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", type: "virtualbox"
config.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", disabled: true
to their Vagrantfile, to prevent errors on "vagrant up".
Our automatic testing is running on a CentOS Linux 7 host, using Vagrant 1.9.4 with vagrant-libvirt and VirtualBox 5.1.20 (without the Guest Additions) as providers. We strongly recommend using the libvirt provider when stability is required.
We also performed additional manual testing with Vagrant 1.9.6 on OS X 10.11.6, with VirtualBox 5.1.22.
The official images can be downloaded from Hashicorp’s Atlas. We provide images for libvirt-kvm, VirtualBox and VMware.
If you never used our images before:
vagrant box add centos/6 # for CentOS Linux 6, or... vagrant box add centos/7 # for CentOS Linux 7
Existing users can upgrade their images:
vagrant box update --box centos/6 vagrant box update --box centos/7
The SHA256 checksums of the images are signed with the CentOS 7 Official Signing Key. First, download and verify the checksum file:
$ curl http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/vagrant/x86_64/images/sha256sum.txt.asc -o sha256sum.txt.asc $ gpg --verify sha256sum.txt.asc
If the check passed, you can use the corresponding checksum when downloading the image with Vagrant:
$ vagrant box add --checksum-type sha256 --checksum aabcfe77a08b72bacbd6f05e5f26b67983b29314ee0039d0db4c9b28b4909fcd --provider libvirt --box-version 1705.01 centos/7
vagrant box update doesn't accept a
--checksum argument. Since there's no binary diffing involved in updating (the download size is the same, whether you have a previous version of the box or not), you can first issue
vagrant box remove centos/7 and then download the box as described above.
If you encounter any unexpected issues with the Vagrant images, feel free to ask on the centos-devel mailing list, or via IRC, in #centos on Freenode.
We would like to warmly thank Fabian Arrotin and Thomas Oulevey for their work on the build infrastructure, as well as Patrick Lang from Microsoft for testing and feedback on the Hyper-V images.
