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. -----Original Message----- From: redhat-list-bounces@xxxxxxxxxx [mailto:redhat-list-bounces@xxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of m.roth@xxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, June 28, 2011 11:01 AM To: General Red Hat Linux discussion list Subject: RE: EXT :RE: Fedora Server?

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? mark -- redhat-list mailing list unsubscribe mailto:redhat-list-request@xxxxxxxxxx?subject=unsubscribe https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/redhat-list -- redhat-list mailing list unsubscribe mailto:redhat-list-request@xxxxxxxxxx?subject=unsubscribe https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/redhat-list
