Using FC13 and FC17's KDE kmails (in maildir) mode interchangably - safe or not?
I have a laptop with FC13 using that distro version's kmail client.
I have a desktop with FC17 using that distro versions kmail client.
I want to take the laptop to work, receive and send mail there, then take it home at night, copy
on my desktop, then do the reverse the next morning before I go to work again.
Safe / possible? If a KMail instance is in maildir mode, is its maildir format downwardly -and- upwardly compatible at all?
Fedora 13 is end of life, out of support.
Why dont you get fedora 17 and replace the old out of support version?
My laptop is --old-- and I doubt the newer distros will still have driver and hardware support for it... I don't want to format it and find out that its hardware won't work.
The WLAN card on it, for example, has a driver that you manually compile that won't parse in newer GCC versions included with newer distros.
then try a long life distro like CentOS 6
RHEL/CentOS/SL normally do not work well on a laptop ?
without knowing just what it is ? i can not say
or if you want to "go to the dark side" and use a NON rpm distro
there is ubuntu 12.04LTS
and you can install GCC 4.1,gcc4.2,gcc4.4,gcc4.6 and 4.7 and 4.8
all at the SAME TIME
I currently have Gcc 3.4 and 4.1 and 4.6 installed
fedora normally ships with a SO NEW version of GCC that not many programs will not build ( YET) "out of the box" on fedora
WITHOUT some hacking .
- that is "par for the coarse" with fedora ,and is one of the reasons you CHOSE to use fedora .
