Hello all
Been away from the forum a while. I moved and have no internet at home. Have to use wifi 'hot-spots'.

Noticed today that Centos 6.7 will be released in a couple weeks. The CR repository has been loaded with packages, but I haven't had much success with the 6.7 upgrade. Looking forward to a new Stella 6.7 ISO if that's possible.

Hope everyone is still healthy, wealthy, and wise.

Cheers,
ongoto

Hello,

There will be an ISO after 6.7 is released and bugs panned out.

Why haven't you had luck with the upgrade? Please report any errors so I can fix it.

Best regards Smile

Hi nux
That's good news.

The errors are not at your end ( I think ). As I mentioned, I have to use public wifi and the bandwidth is flakey at best. I was able to download all but cups and kernel-devel ( 372 pkgs ) . The servers timed out due to really slow speed. Yum won't resume where it left off, so I have to wait again for all the downloads. I tried twice, but I only have so much battery life in this laptop.

I'm thinking that an ISO provided later on by you would be a better bet in my situation.

Thanks and be well.
ongoto

Hi ongoto,
fine that you are still here and being also a trusty fan of nux like me. Smile
Last time I`ve tested so many other distros, but nothing compares to nux.

Cheers, detipco

Hello detipco
Good to see you still here. Stella is still my workhorse too. Can't break the Gnome2 habit I guess.

Thanks for the shout. Smile

That's ok, the thing is I never really tell them anything when I release so they're in the dark. Smile

Hello again
Well things are looking up. I was going to download the new ISO, but it is a 5 hour job. I looked at buying one from OSDisc but they only offer 6.5. I'll suggest to them an upgrade.
https://www.osdisc.com/products?q=stella+linux
So I tried yum update and it worked this time. My battery died and the laptop shutdown during the updates. I was able to recover after a re-charge with the yum-complete-transaction command. I think I'm now using 6.7
Stella release 6.7 (Final)
Kernel:	2.6.32-573.3.1.el6.x86_64 on a x86_64


@nux
Thanx for all your time and hard work on the new ISO.

@detipco
Thanks for the links and suggestions.

Cheers Very Happy

EDIT:
I just checked the OSDisc link above and they have upgraded to the new version 6.7. Way to go team!!! Very Happy
