3. Packages and Applications
4. New features
The LiveDVD can be installed to hard disk thus obtaining a fully functional CentOS GUI workstation. The set of packages that gets installed on hard disk can not be adjusted during the installation because this is a simple transfer to disk of the image existing on DVD. After booting from hard disk yum can be used to add/remove packages.
5. Known Issues
The size of the overlay is still limited to 4096 MB on the official Centos Live media
On Live CD/DVD, Anaconda crash after timezone selection screen when the hostname is modified. See upstream bugzilla entry #698282 for details.
6. How to help and get help
As a CentOS user there are various ways you can help out with the CentOS community. Take a look at our Contribute page for further information on how to get involved.
6.1. Special Interest Groups
CentOS consists of different Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that bring together people with similar interests. The following SIGs already exist:
Artwork - create and improve artwork for CentOS releases and promotion
Promotion - help promoting CentOS online or at events
Virtualization - unite people around virtualization in CentOS
And we encourage people to join any of these SIGs or start up a new SIG, e.g.
- Alpha, S390, Sparc and PPC port - help with porting CentOS to other architectures
- Hardware compatibility - provide feedback about specific hardware
- RPM Packaging - contribute new useful RPM packages
- Translation - help translating the documentation, website and Wiki content
6.2. Mailinglists and Fora
6.3. Wiki and Website
Even as an inexperienced CentOS user we can use your help. Because we like to know what problems you encountered, if you had problems finding specific information, how you would improve documentation so it becomes more accessible. This kind of feedback is as valuable to others as it would have been to you so your involvement is required to make CentOS better.
So if you want to help out and improve our documentation and Wiki, register on the Wiki or subscribe to the centos-docs mailing list.
