Changelog (changes from 5.6 images)

This is the first 5.7 release. It is based on the earlier 5.6 release with a few package additions and config changes.

  • Disable services that are not needed in the default configuration, eg iscsi and rawdevices
  • Enable cron and xinetd daemons by default (none of the xinetd managed services are started though)
  • Populate /etc/sysconfig/kernel so that newly installed kernels become the default. The previous config retained the current kernel as default.
  • For full-virtual systems (eg KVM) the initrd now contains virtio_blk drivers allowing the root device to use virtio emulation
