How can I say what is latest avail package for RedHat


Hi All,

I have net-snmp-5.4.1-gpce2.0 installed on my RedHatEnt5.8 and I want to know what is the latest version available for my RedHat beside that version if I want to upgrade my net-snmp. How can I say what version of net-snmp is the latest and where can I download it?


Thanks in advance

The authoritative source for information about Red Hat is: http://www.redhat.com/support/

You are paying a lot for your subscription so why not take advantage of the benefits?

And : net-snmp-5.4.1-gpce2.0 doesn't look like an RHEL5 package.
A Cisco package ?

Latest is : net-snmp-5.3.2.2-17.el5_8.1
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/linux/en...r/en/os/SRPMS/
( Not binary packages, but source code SRC.RPMS.)

Yes. It's Cisco version

How 5.3.2.2 can be newer than 5.4.1? What if I go to http://www.net-snmp.org and download the latest? Will it work for EL5?

You can buy subscriptions without support. Using RHEL does not mean that you automatically have to have support.

Some general reading material about how Red Hat numbers their packages:

https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/backporting/

Generally speaking, the "path of least resistance" is to use the stable and supported package versions provided with your Red Hat subscription. If you have a specific reason for needing a different version of net-snmp from outside the network, you haven't communicated it to us...
