Announcement for 7.1.1
The SME Server maintenance team is pleased to announce the release of SME Server 7.1 Update 1 (SME 7.1.1) This release has many fixes for previously reported issues.

All SME Server users should upgrade to this release.

Bug reports and reports of potential bugs should be raised
in the bug tracker (and only there, please);
http://bugs.contribs.org/

Major changes from SME Server 7.1

- Mainly bug fixes and upstream updates
- Added USB backup option added in console menu
- Added Swedish Translation
- Improved Samba Roaming profiles handling
- Added cookie based authentication to server-manager
- Added logout feature to server-manager
- Added ability to have shared address books in webmail

- Major changes that are not user-visible
. Added ability to open tcp and udp port ranges
. Added ability to set global chroot directory for users
. Added ability to purge old logs by days
. Added ability to specify which drive letter to user for user's home directory

- A list of other work included in this release can be found here:
http://bugs.contribs.org/showdependencytree.cgi?id=2342

Please visit http://www.smeserver.org/donate/ to donate.

Other notable items:

We realize that we had issues with some of the mirrors not being in sync at the time of the announcement. We are working with the dev team to come up with a strategy to correct this in the near future.

We were caught by an upstream kernel release so some systems may have the -10 kernel installed. If so, you will notice that PPTP will be broke. We are working on getting 7.1.2 out the door so the associated -10 kmods will be installed and fix PPTP again. There is an update in 7.1.1 that fixes a bug where the excludes section in yum.conf was not being populated properly. Going forward, this should aid in new kernels only showing up as an update in smeupdates.

If smeserver-userpanel is installed please refer to this post
http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=35924.0

Lastly, we would like to extend the call again for others to help in validating bug reports and helping the maintenance team get updates verified so they can be pushed out. The more help we can get, the better quality we can provide.

Thanks,

John Bennett
on behalf of the maintenance team

You're a little fast with your post.  It's 22:30 and still no option or notice from SME to update new software. :D

Tonight I received a mail about available updates.

This morning I launched "yum update", and this is its output:

Same issue as pmiranda

No updates available although i had a bunch in the mail.

Checked they were available at ibiblio.
Disabled the fastestmirror plugin.
Only enabled ibiblio repo.
Point ibiblio to the 7.0 and 7.1 repo

NO updates :-(

As some of you, i had only 2 updates for kernel
I perform a yum clean all
Then yum list updates give the whole.

Today, this is the yum transaction summary:
Code: [Select]
Transaction Summary
=============================================================================
Install     12 Package(s)
Update      73 Package(s)
Remove       0 Package(s)
Total download size: 81 M


No need to clean the yum cache, the problem was elsewhere, and seems solved.

WARNING

There are some troubles with this update. Kernel could be updated to a wrong version, mostly for people using 7.1 fresh and not 7.0 upgraded to 7.1.

Do not install kernel.2.6.9_42.10.EL. Right kernel should be : kernel.2.6.9_42.8.EL.

Problem solved itself can confirm all updates are now available through yum and i upgraded without trouble.
Use --disablerepo=updates for exluding the kernels

OK OK this probably should be in the "Bug Tracker" forum but it might help others out who are updating.

When I ran yum from the admin panel today my internal Nic card and external Nic card got reversed.
What are the three dots for at the end of my signature file and why can't I get rid of them?These three dots right here >...

Yes you should post this to the bugtracker.

Would if I Could

Well I'd post it to the bugtracker but it wouldn't let me in. The other reason I posted it here was just in case somebody was trying to update remotely over the internet they would lose control of the machine.
