Linux Help & all it's services will be offline for 2-6 hours on Saturday May 22nd 2004. I am planning to bring everything down around 9 or 10pm eastern time.

The end of life for Red Hat 9 is at the end of this month, so during this outage I will be updating the OS and possibly adding more RAM.

Thank you for your continued support.

First, nice pun. Second, it doesn't byte this is a good thing, more ram is always good. Besides, I don't know about you guys, but on a Saturday nigh I plan on doing something other than linuxhelp. I know it may be tough for some people to grasp but we can't be nerds all the time.

Just out of curiosity, what OS are you upgrading to?

The box is currently running Red Hat 9. I will either be moving it to Fedora Core 2 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES, I haven't decided yet.

I installed fedora core 2 beta 2 ... I'm just happy if it boots. I wouldn't put the server on that unless it gets alot more stable between now and then! (just my opinion)

Fedora Core 1 wasn't that bad. I didn't care for the install (only have to do it once) or the way X was set up (I don't install X on the server). Anyhow I'll see when the time comes.

My main Fedora Core 1 is fairly stable now ... the biggest problems I am having with Fedora Core 2 involve the integration of SELinux into the FC2 kernel. I have set selinux=0 but am still having some issues.

I would try whitebox but their site seems kind of scary. They seem like they could disappear at any time and leave me hanging dry.

CentOS 3.1 is also pretty good .... http://www.centos.org ... and I don't see them going anywhere. CentOS has more developers and is part of the bigger cAos project.

I think John Morris and WhiteBox are going to be around for a while too ... on the mailing list he is talking about how he is structuring the FTP servers for both possible respins of RHEL 3 (with the quarterly updates) and for RHEL 4.

I think either would be a very stable server environment ... And, if all else fails, we (I) can build the RHEL SRPMS from scratch as long as RedHat continues release them.

im starting to learn how to rebuild rpm sources so it might take me a while to rebuild them...not exactly sure the proper way of doing it....ive been using different ways of building src rpms...but i believe i can handle the situation also if something would happen....and as far as redhat keeping the src's available....i really dont think they will stop releasing them

hugh,

what is the best way to rebuild src rpms

like i posted...ive done it 2 different ways

I looked at a few different distributions tonight and I must say that I'm so sick of this, I just want to get the migration done with.

I dont think I'm going to bother with any of the enterprise linux stuff. It's going to be either FC2 or Debian.
