there are ways to do this but i'd advise you don't. redhat 9 is VERY VERY OLD AND OBSOLETE. fix this, then you'll another and another and another issue as software is no longer built for rh9. instead stick with ubuntu or use fedora 9.

Do you maybe mean Fedora Core 9?

You can add a Livna repository and install those versions.

An aside. What is with all of the messages about RH9? IMHO, most come from India. It's getting to be a tired joke.

it is odd isn't it? redhat is still the most respected name, and 9 is the highest number... rhel 5.2 would always be assumed to be older than rh9 despite the what, 7 years age difference in the other direction?

well 9 isn't *the* highest number. I know lots of numbers that are higher. Like 24, 829 and 31.

It is possible to install 'yum' on RedHat 9 and than (theoretically) use it for updating. But software is only one part of the update equation - you would also need a repository with all the packages to update. Very unlikely that someone somewhere maintains such a repository for RH9.

You can either download the source code for the needed packages and build everything specifically for your system (the beauty of open source), or update your system to current versions of Fedora, RHEL or CentOS and update from their respective repositories (the beauty of a vivid community).
