      yum downgrade allowed for easy roll-back.

      Personsally, I have no expectation of continuing support for CentOS 5 (I am in the process of migrating to CentOS 7) but report the issue as there is nothing mentioned in the documentation. eg

      Upgrading to Jenkins LTS 2.138.x

            I am afraid agents will be impacted as well, e.g. process management or SVN checkout with SVNkit.

            Have not tested it, but there are a lot of dependencies on JNA in the codebase: https://github.com/search?l=Java&q=org%3Ajenkinsci+jna&type=Code

            Would someone mind commenting here if CentOS 5 is still a valid for the Jenkins build agent?

            We do not run Jenkins on CentOS 5 – but we still do use several build machines which are CentOS 5 for backwards compatibility builds.  I believe JNA is used by the build agent for some items.

            We want to understand if upgrading Jenkins to the latest LTS build will require any special processes to continue to use CentOS 5 build machines.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CentOS#End-of-support_schedule

            Is it really newsworthy that Jenkins does not support an OS release that hasn't been supported by its vendor/project for 18 months?

            I'm not sure, but feel free to add it to our docs. No need to ping me here.

            oleg_nenashev Glibc 2.7 is a must and CentOS 5 won't support it as its EOL this year . I don't think revert is the option here as newer things will have dependencies and that would stall everything. We probably add to documentation that CentOS 5 won't be supported anymore.

            And yes, CentOS 5 is stuck at 2.5: https://serverfault.com/questions/372243/glibc-2-7-on-centos-5-5 . I see no easy way to support it without reverting the change (which would be unfortunate) or serious changes in Jenkins startup logic.

            danielbeck I propose adding end of Centos 5 support to upgrade guidelines

            FTR this is discussed in https://github.com/java-native-access/jna/issues/771 . https://github.com/java-native-access/jna/pull/840 is a pull request which sets 2.7 as a minimum dependency

            Most likely JENKINS-52771 in 2.136 is a root cause of it.

            I agree that it needs to be documented at least. GLIBC 2.7 is required
