how about

Quote:
yum install mono
...from the console...if it's in the repo...
By the way, RHEL is enterprise, your support contract should cover this...

Oh, and the magic word is "please"...

Of course RHEL4 is no longer supported by RH unless you paid for Extended Life support http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata/

and RHEL4 did NOT ship with "yum"
that was in the later versions of 4 ( i think 4.3 ? but ?? )
rhel4 uses "up2date"

but as others have said
unless you are paying red hat for the EXTRA extended life support
it is unsupported

Well i thought RHEL4 did use yum until it was pointed out to me that it was an add on later
RHEL4 just slightly predates me
RHEL5.1 was out by the time i started using CentOS

I started out with RedHat 8 at the time, having had nothing but ***dows to swallow before that, little did I know what the console was, let alone the hind lying commands.
But, to get to the OP's subject, indeed, an upgrade seems in order, as te undercurrent of this thread seems to suggest...and, yes, why not CentOS?

Nope, well, not a sane one anyway. The BEST way is to stay faithfull to the given repo. If it's not in there, you _could_ find it elsewhere. There is a snag: the software may have dependencies the system does not (yet) cater for. Of course, you could install these, but some may need a newer kernel, fair enough, this means compiling a new kernel, and installing it, at the risk of breaking a system that was not meant for that newer kernel.
Granted, I did that once, and got pretty close to a result. I tried to "upgrade" a Redhat 8, until someone (here, as I recall, on this site) advised me to get a newer install, if I wanted to save myself some (educational but maddening) headaches...
Of course, CentOS is similar in many (all?) ways...so, I'd go in that direction...

Thor
