Scientific Linux 7.4 x86_64 - Oct 2 2017 == Information ==
NOTE: Please review the SL Release Notes along with The Upstream Vendor's Release Notes: http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7.4/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/7.4/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. http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7/x86_64/release-notes/#_how_to_make_a_bootable_usb_installer == SL Specific Updates == .UEFI Secure Boot Chain The boot packages (shim, grub2, kernel) are now signed by the new Scientific Linux Secure Boot key. If you use UEFI Secure Boot, you MUST import this new key into your Machine Owner Key database. If you do not use UEFI Secure Boot, no action is required. For more information about Scientific Linux and Secure Boot please review http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/7x/x86_64/release-notes/#_about_uefi_secure_boot https://listserv.fnal.gov/scripts/wa.exe?A2=SCIENTIFIC-LINUX-ANNOUNCE;2776c184.1707 .Iptables iptables has been rebuilt with the fixes from RHBZ 1481207. These patches resolve a bug where the iptables services report the firewall is loaded when it is not. This bug primarily impacts dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) systems. The upstream fix is still pending release. .OpenAFS OpenAFS has been updated to version 1.6.21 from openafs.org .Anaconda User Help The anaconda user help files are now correctly debranded. Thanks for the bug report Michael Tiernan! == Known Issues == .libgpod Users of the EPEL libgpod package may need to run yum downgrade libgpod before running yum update .MATE and Cinnamon We have encountered some display issues with the MATE and Cinnamon desktops as provided by EPEL-7. The exact causes are unclear. == 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.
