Today's updates
Install       6 Package(s)
Upgrade     327 Package(s)
Total download size: 606 M

Installed:
  kernel.x86_64 0:2.6.32-504.el6              kernel-devel.x86_64 0:2.6.32-504.el6


The kernel got upgraded along with 327 other packages today. Glad I waited to do a backup of the partition. Rebooted and haven't had any problems. I had just finished a fresh install of Stella6.5-5 so this gives me a system that is nice and clean and about as new as it can get. Good stuff. Time to clone the partition.

Cheers

Hi,

Those updates are from the CR repo[1], it means 6.6 is really close. Smile

Aha

There was a lot of packages updated for sure. All told, with dependencies, there were 666 upgrades. I thought for sure something was going to break, but Stella just keeps humming along. Very Happy

When 6.6 does get released, does that mean there will be a new Stella6.6 image? I'm still kinda partial to Gnome2.

Yes, once 6.6 is released I'll generate new ISOs, too. No point installing from old ISO then install half a GB of updates.
