I've generated new ISOs of Stella (based on CentOS 6.2). This is to revive your interest while I'm preparing for EL 6.3 which will bring some surprises.

Some of the changes:

- Lots of updated stuff (all CentOS 6 updates including Firefox and Thunderbird v10 ESR!)
- Removed some software: "Remmina" got removed because FreeRDP provided by EPEL is too new and the newest Remmina release that works with it requires GTK3... which we don't have. On the bright part this new FreeRDP has no problems connecting to RDP SSL (in Windows 7/2008)... so it's back to the command line for now. Sorry guys/girls!
- Removed the extra drivers I used to include from ElRepo as not many people were using them and updating them was a bit of a pain (it's in the nature of the kmods to update slowly), let me know if this inconveniences anyone.
- LibreOffice updated to 3.4.5! EL 6.3 will also provide LibreOffice, yey! If you want to use the vanilla RPMs from check my blog post.

I've also created a special 32 bit build with only the NONPAE kernel from ElRepo project (for those of you with Pentium M and other non-PAE capable CPUs). Please be advised that if you use this NONPAE ISO you cannot make use of the kmods provided by the ElRepo project. This build has not been properly tested, use at your own risk and only if you can't run the stock EL6 kernel. Feel free to open issues on the forum if you need help with it.

Have a nice download:
