altarch LTS 5.4 Kernel repo gone

Post by faramirza » 2020/11/12 14:12:04

What happened to the LTS kernels published on http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/kernel/x86_64/ that used to have the latest LTS kernel for Centos 7? The repo no longer exists. I was able to get 5.4.65-200 from it still very recently.

7.9 was released today.
The symlink "7" now points to different directory, 7.9.2009, while it was to 7.8.2003 until couple hours ago.
It looks like altarch/7.9.2009/kernel has not been synced/created yet.

Thanks for checking! I'll monitor it on my side and will revert here if it does not pop up. I doubt that the project canned the LTS kernel and I agree it seems to be that with the release of 7.9 the repo have not synced yet.

But apparently not for the x86_64 kernels? Or is their a mirror sync issue?
