Scheduled Maintenance

Upgrade of machines 2017

Machines to upgrade: 30

Reasons:

  • Main reason is to avoid security holes and update libraries.
  • Libraries not present in the distribution will be provided with a new mechanism implemented with success by Lunarc. It will be in a test state during 2017.
  • OpenSuse 13.1 is out of support since November 2016; the software is already old.

Tentative Schedule

Status of other machines

Target distribution

  • Ubuntu 16.04 will be supported until 2021 and is my preference. There will be no more

machine update until that time.

  • OpenSuSE Leap can be installed upon request. Its release cycle and support is unclear, therefore I am not supporting it anymore.
