Fedora Core 4


Any idea where I can get a reliable torrent for Fedora Core 4?
It seems as though the official Fedora website is not hosting them anymore (?)
Anyway, if anyone has a good link, it would be much appreciated

They are not offering FC 4 because it has not been supported for a long time. Is there some reason that you need FC 4 and not a supported version of Fedora or another distro? I would never use an unsupported distro.

As for a torrent, I don't think that exists as there is no demand for FC 4.

Yes, the only reason to use a torrent is so that everyone that downloads also uploads and it puts less of a burden on the hosting system. If only you are using the torrent, it actually is slower. It looks like this site still has it, but I'd really recommend 8 instead.

Hmm .. alright, in that case, I will probably stick with the latest version than, seeing as it is not supported. Thanks for the link though.

That's a good idea. Anything broken in FC 4 will stay broken, security vulnerabilities will not be fixed, hardware will become increasingly incompatible. You'd probably be doing a lot of compiling if you went that route.
