Bem-vindo ao lançamento do CentOS 5.6. O CentOS é uma Distribuição Linux de Nível Comercial derivada dos fontes fornecidos gratuitamente ao público por nosso Upstream OS Provider (UOP)FootNote(Visit http://www.redhat.com/rhel/).
O CentOS está em total acordo com as políticas de redistribuição do fornecedor original e tem a intenção de ter 100% de compatibilidade com seus binários. (O CentOS altera os pacotes principalmente para remover as marcas e as artes gráficas do fornecedor original.) O CentOS é um Sistema Operacional Gratuito.
O CentOS 5.6 é a sexta atualização da série da distribuição CentOS 5. Ela contém muitas correções, atualizações e novas funcionalidades. Antes de continuar, recomendamos a leitura das notas de lançamento do UOP em Notas de Lançamento e Notas Técnicas. O restante deste documento é um adendo, e cobre principalmente problemas específicos do CentOS.

4. Known Issues
As of CentOS 5.5, x86_64 is split into two DVDs. If you need the additional language packs for OpenOffice (OOo), you can no longer just loop mount the DVD iso and run an install from it. You will either need to do a 'cp -al' and regenerate the metadata or install the langpack packages after the rest of the system. Installs not requiring the additional OOo language packs should run using only DVD#1.
If upgrading from a CentOS 5 release earlier than 5.5 the following procedure is advised:
yum clean all yum update glibc\* yum update yum\* rpm\* pyth\* yum clean all yum update mkinitrd nash yum update selinux\* yum update shutdown -r now
Because of [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669963 this bug] httpd fails to start after existing systems are updated from an older CentOS 5 release to CentOS 5.6. The workaround is described [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669963#c15 here]. This only happens when you have SSL enabled and mod_nss installed for your webserver.
An encounter with [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=674394 upstream bug #674394] with scsi-target-utils for iscsi clients accessing large volumes has been reported by a [https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&topic_id=30880&forum=37 forum user]. The recommended workaround is to downgrade scsi-target-utils to the 5.5 version.
If you are using the qcow2 disk image type on your KVM virtual machines, you may need to edit the XML file for your virtual machine (<VM_Name>.xml file in /etc/libvirt/qemu/). You want to look in the <disk type='file' device='disk'> section of the file and find any type="raw" and change it to type="qcow2".
5. Resolved Issues
Up to (and including) CentOS 5.5 the installer offered the option to enable the CentOS Extras repository by activating a preset menu entry. Unfortunately [http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=3961 an Anaconda installation bug ] made the installer crash if this option was enabled. In CentOS 5.6 this predefined menu entry has been removed. CentOS Extras can still be used during the installation but it must be manually introduced just like any other additional repository.
6.1. New repositories
Starting with CentOS 5.6, the centos-release package includes the required configuration files needed to access the debuginfo and vault repositories which previously had to be downloaded separately. CentOS-Debuginfo.repo contains the debuginfo packages (needed among other uses for systemtap) while CentOS-Vault.repo contains the previous (and no longer supported) minor releases of CentOS 5.
6.2. New packages in 5.6 that were not present in 5.5
6.3. Packages that have been upgraded in 5.6 since the 5.5 release
Note: The python package has been split in 3 subpackages (python-libs, python and python-devel instead of the former python and python-devel split).
6.4. Packages removed by upstream in 5.6 that were present in 5.5
6.5. Packages released as 5.5 updates with older packages on the 5.6 install media
These packages are now in the updates repository for CentOS 5.6.
7. Changes made by CentOS
7.1. Packages modified by CentOS
7.2. Packages removed from CentOS that are included upstream
7.3. Packages added by CentOS that are not included upstream
8. 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.
8.1. Special Interest Groups
CentOS consists of different [http://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup Special Interest Groups] (SIGs) that bring together people with similar interests. The following SIGs already exist:
[:SpecialInterestGroup/Artwork:Artwork] - create and improve artwork for CentOS releases and promotion
[:SpecialInterestGroup/Promo:Promotion] - help promoting CentOS online or at events
[:SpecialInterestGroup/Virtualization: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
8.2. Mailinglists and Fora
Another way you can help others in the community is by actively helping and resolving problems that users come up against in [http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo the mailinglists] and [http://www.centos.org/modules/newbb/ the fora].
8.3. 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 [http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-docs centos-docs] mailinglist.
