What does core mean


Hi All,
Can "CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core)" 64 bit be used for server to provide services such as web, ftp, mail etc. I meant to say whether it is stable and can be used for server. Because the previous versions was just as "CentOS release 5.10, CentOS release 6.2, CentOS release 6.4" and so on. Thanks for your kind reply.

Hi, core is the main part of the release. Release is quite stable. Core is capable of giving a working system,

but maybe not EVERYTHING required for a particular workststion or server.

from the wiki...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS#Repositories
Code:
Repositories

There are two primary CentOS repositories (also known as channels), containing software packages that make up the main CentOS distribution:[114]

    base – contains packages that form CentOS point releases, and gets updated when the actual point release is formally made available in form of ISO images.
    updates – contains packages that serve as security, bugfix or enhancement updates, issued between the regular update sets for point releases. Bugfix and enhancement updates released this way are only those unsuitable to be released through the CentOS-Fasttrack repository described below.[115][116]
    addons – provides packages required for building the packages that make up the main CentOS distribution, but are not provided by the upstream.

The CentOS project provides several additional repositories that contain software packages not provided by the default base and updates repositories. Those repositories include the following:[117]
Hope this helps, Regards Glenn

Hi GlennsPref,
Thanks for the great information. And if centOS 7 32 bit is available, request you to share the download link as my desktop PC supports only 32 bit OS.

CentOS 7 is currently only 64-bit, since Red Hat no longer supports 32-bit systems. There will be a 32-bit version, but it will obviously take time to arrive. When it does, then we will have to wait again for extras from places like EPEL. If you want to run CentOS on that computer, get version 6: that has quite a few years' support still to come.

Downloading CentOS-6.6 for new installs:

When possible, consider using torrents to obtain our ISOs. Usually it is
also
the fastest means to download the distro.

Torrent files for the DVD's are available at :
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.6/...VD1to2.torrent

You can also use a mirror close to you to get any of our ISOs:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6.6/isos/

If you need to update a local mirror, you can choose from our mirror
network:
http://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/

Most mirrors will allow downloads over http, ftp and rsync.

Thank you David,

Hope this helps, Regards Glenn

Hi Both,
Thanks for your valuable time. I already have previous versions of CentOS. I am expecting CentOS 7 32 bit because I wanted to learn it as I found few(or may be many) things/commands has been changed in CentOS 7 64bit.
Once again thanks for your kind reply.

It will be announced here,
