[Centos] centos 3.3 and updates for 3.1

Hi Everyone,
 Centos 3.3 is available for general use - you can find it at:
 
http://mirror.caosity.org/centos-3/3.3/

This should be a complete rebuild of all the nice things Red Hat has
included in the srpms of their Enterprise Linux 3 update 3.

This is a rebuild of all the changed packages from update 3 overlaid
onto 3.1. It includes a rebuilt anaconda and new boot kernels for the
installer. The release includes X86_64 and i386 architecture support.

Known Problems:
 openoffice does not function without openoffice.org-i18n installed. I
believe this is NOT unique to centos but consistent with RHEL3U3
functionality

 comps.rpm included on the isos does not have the correct hdlists in
place for cd support from redhat-config-packages. This should be fixed
before long. However, it was not practical to re-roll the isos for this.
An updated comps package will be released which fixes this problem.
In addition, a few errors in packages listed in the comps.xml file will
be corrected.

 yum: yum 2.0.8 did not know about the ia32e or nocona processors so it
cannot install those kernels on x86_64 systems using those chips. A
future version of yum will correct this.


Updating from 3.1:
 An update from 3.1 should be seamless. Simply, running 'yum update'
should get all the latest packages from your local mirror repository. Keep 
in mind this is a lot of updates from 3.1 to 3.3. You may need to free
up some disk space in order to complete this update. This will update
your centos-release to 3.3. At this point your yum.conf should be
pointing to the 3.3 path by using the $releasever variable.

If you look at your /etc/yum.conf file and it is explicitly using the
3.1 path you should change it to use the $releasever variable.
for example:

WRONG: 
baseurl=http://mirror.caosity.org/centos-3/3.1/

RIGHT:
baseurl=http://mirror.caosity.org/centos-3/$releasever/

WRONG:
baseurl=http://mirror.caosity.org/centos-3/3.3/


If you'd like to reinstall your system from scratch or install a new
system you will need to download all new disk images as the ones for 3.1
will not install from the 3.3 installation directories.

If you have additional questions or bugs please file them in caos
bugzilla: https://bugzilla.caosity.org

or post them to this mailing list (centos at caosity.org)


Thanks
