Morning all,

I noticed that the Scientific Linux site states that 7.2 is available, but yet when I attempt to run a yum -y update I still am on 7.1. Can anyone tell me when 7.2 will be available for yum update?

if not is there a new method to update those packages?

can you let me know that as well,

Please and thank you.

You need to check if you have the package yum-conf-sl7x installed.
If not, your SL repo configuration is pointing to 7.1 instead of 7x (which automatically points to the latest version, 7.2 at the moment).

or just use yum command:

CODE

yum update --releasever=7.2


that should work too.
this is actually great (IMHO) feature of SL - it wont perform automatic update between versions, so you keep perfect control over your system and do the 'big' updates only when you feel comfortable with it
