5210R: CentOS 8.3 has been released

Posted by: mstauber Category: General

The YUM updates for CentOS 8.3 have been published today by upstream.

This time around it's fairly "fat" with around 560-580 updated RPMs for a typical 5210R install. Including goodies such as an updated glibc, updated bind, updated Apache and lots of other stuff that often has the potential to rock the boat a little.

After installing the updates I noticed that the updated Apache had brought back the HTTP/2 support and had enabled it by default. Which then causes Apache to segfault on all requests.

To fix that an updated "swatch" has been published to the BlueOnyx 5210R YUM repository, which will automatically check if the HTTP/2 module is loaded via /etc/httpd/conf.modules.d/10-h2.conf and if so, it'll comment that line out automatically and will restart Apache.

As far as I can tell this was the only issue caused by these updates.

An updated ISO image to directly install a CentOS 8.3 based 5210R has also just been released.
