As a part of CentOS Container Pipeline project, we've been continually discussing, debating and working towards features that developers and sysadmins out there would like to have from a build pipeline. In the sense, besides just building the container images upon a push to some git repository, what else would add value for the devs […]

Over past few months, we've been working on CentOS Community Container Pipeline which aims to help developers focus on what they love doing most - write awesome code - and sysadmins have an insight into the image by providing metadata about it! The project code is hosted at Github.com since its inception. The hosted service, […]

Ten days ago I wrote an article here about an armv7hl test image for the Cubietruck 32-bit ARM board.  I have just uploaded a similar armv7hl image for the Raspberry Pi2. Both of these images are created with the RootFS Build Factory (a 2015 CentOS GSoC Project from Mandar Joshi sponsored by the CentOS Project). […]

About a week after announcing the CentOS 7 alpha build for AArch64 hardware, I got an email from the fine folks at AMD asking for my address.

A majority of them are now available on every CentOS-7 machine by running the following commands : yum update yum --enablerepo=cr list updates Its important you run a 'yum update' first, since the cr repo definitions are only available in the newer centos-release […]

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 was released a few days back, You can go read the release notes now. Its a great way to find out the big changes and enhancements in this release. On the CentOS side of things, we have been working through last week on getting the sources organised and the builds […]

As I'd mentioned previously, the fine folks of Applied Micro were kind enough to give us an X-C1 development box to see if it was feasible to build and run CentOS Linux 7. My first attempt through, I realized I hadn't been taking decent notes, so I scrapped most of the package work and started […]
