RE: EXT :RE: Fedora Server?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


RH6.2 ...  not RHEL.  Yeah, *that* old.

I considered going to 8.0 when it came out, but never did it.

I'm afraid my server might be nearing its last legs, and it's gained some wonkiness recently (I think I have an impending HW failure), so I'm considering the upgrade to something new.  Of course, this means I throw away all my ipchains stuff and move to iptables (or whatever is en vogue, these days), likely re-do my sendmail.cf, and several handfuls of other scripts & apps to get it working, but....

Maybe it's worth it.

So, why are you even considering it... wait, are do you mean RH 6.2 (10
years old), or RHEL, in which case, I didn't think 6.2 was out, only 6.1?
