Scientific Linux 6.2

Scientific Linux 6.2 has been released for both i386 and x86_64 architecture.

Feb 16, 2012
Scientific Linux release 6.2 has been released for i386 and x86_64.

We want to thank everyone who has contributed, tested, and given us feedback. We feel that this is one of our best releases yet, and we couldn't have done it without the entire SL community.

Scientific Linux release 6.2 is based on the rebuilding of RPMS out of SRPMS's from Enterprise 6 Update 2, both Server and Client.
