CentOS 6.1 Installation
I am preparing to install CentOS 6.1 in a VM. I went out to the site, Index of /centos/6.1, to download and saw all these folders on the download site. I am not sure what to download. Please advise.
This can be used as a repository or to mirror to your local repository.
Dont bother too much for now :)
On that centos mirror go into the directory called "isos"
In there are dvd ISOs suitable for a local install.
Your virtualizer can directly use such an ISO file as a cdrom/dvd drive, so no need to burn it first.
There is an isos folder on that site. inside are 2 folders i386 and x86 64. Is that the folder you are refering to and which one of the 2 folders should i use?
That would be the folder.
As far as which folder you need, it depends on your computer. i386 is for 32-bit processors, but will run just fine on 64-bit.
x86_64 is only for 64-bit CPUs.
Thanks i am downloading the 2 dvd.iso's now. do you know if there is just 1 disk i can use for install instead of 2?
I figured it out. DVD 2 is only needed for a server install. You only need disk 1 for the default, desktop, install. thanks for all the help.
