Scientific Linux 7.3 x86_64 - Jan 25 2017

== Information ==

NOTE: Please review the SL Release Notes along with
The Upstream Vendor's Release Notes:

http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7.3/x86_64/release-notes/

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/index.html

There is a great deal of information within those documents not listed here.

Please run: yum clean expire-cache

== Media ==
You can find the release media at:
http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7.3/x86_64/iso/

Due to the size of the release, the 4.7gb Install media is discontinued.
We have retained the Dual Layer Install media.

Alternatively the livecd-iso-to-disk utility is able to convert
this to USB successfully. A USB device of sufficient size is
required.

Alternatively you can utilize the dd command to write the
raw image to a USB device.

== SL Specific Updates ==

.Scientific Linux Contexts
SL 7.3 includes updated support for Scientific Linux Contexts which
should allow for ease of creating local customization for specific
computing needs. Anaconda integration should be less intrusive
for non-context users
For more information on Scientific Linux Contexts:
http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7/contexts/README.html

.OpenAFS
With SL 7.2 OpenAFS has been updated to version 1.6.20 the latest
upstream stable.

.sl-release
There is a new Scientific Linux End User License Agreement (EULA).
The EULA now contains information about the U.S. Government contract
under which Fermilab produces Scientific Linux.


== UEFI Secure Boot ==
The status of UEFI Secure Boot for Scientific Linux is noted in detail at:

http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7/x86_64/release-notes/#_about_uefi_secure_boot

Booting SL7 with Secure Boot enabled works but requires a manual step.
This is because the "shim" has not been signed by the UEFI CA.
Instructions are included within the SL7 Release Notes.
