The version of CRIU which is included with
CentOS is updated with every minor CentOS
release (at least at the time of writing this) since 7.2, but once the
minor CentOS release is available CRIU is not updated anymore until the
next minor release. To make it easier to use the latest version of CRIU
on CentOS I am now also rebuilding the latest version in
COPR for CentOS:
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/adrian/criu-el7/.

To enable my CRIU COPR on CentOS following steps are necessary:

  • yum install yum-plugin-copr
  • yum copr enable adrian/criu-el7

And then the latest version of CRIU can be installed using yum install
criu
.
