Hi, I noticed latest version (openvz-iso-7.0.7-359.iso) comes with factory repo enabled, but in the factory.repo says it is only for developers.

What should we do?

Thank you!

Dear javii,

it is our fail,
factory repository should be disabled in stable branch.

We're going to release updated version soon,
right now please disable factory repo manually.

Thank you for reporting this issue,
sorry for our mistake,
Vasily Averin

Hello Vasily,

Have multiple systems on a fresh install with all factory packages. Looks like those will be for 7.0.8?

Can you let us know when this version will become stable?

Thanks!

vz7 update 8 is expected in month or even later.
However we're going to release an hotfix for update 7 with kernel fixes for "pop ss" and recent "Speculative Store Bypass" issues,
so we'll publish updated openvz7.0.7 iso image with disabled factory repo.

Thanks for your quick response. It seems to be that the factory packages are directly retrieved from the latest CentOS 7, including latest kernel patches with vz7.50.1. So looks that only risk would be in the packges for virutozzo?

Hmm,

I'm not sure that I understand your question correctly.

Let's take look at
https://download.openvz.org/virtuozzo/factory/x86_64/os/repo view/

I see here our new kernel, guest tools, dispatcher, criu, libvirt, vzctl and anaconda,
and I do not see here any packages directly retrieved from the latest CentOS 7.

We should not break original CentOS7 functionality (at least I hope so),
but our own packages included into factory are not well tested.
