Downrev from RHEL5 to RHEL4


Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to downrev or downgrade your RHEL installation, for example, downrev/downgrade from RHEL5 to RHEL4 or it's just much simplier to re-install.

Please let me know if you need more info.

thanks,
rhe

Greetings!

A distro upgrade is much easier than a downgrade... if possible, I'd greatly recommend a re-install--less likely to run into issues with mixed versions of libraries.

If you have your /home directory on its own partition then a re-install really will be quite easy.

Hope this helps.
