Is there working url for redhat 9?


Is there working url for redhat 9?

I have try to "up2date yum, then got this message.

Code:
root@:/root>up2date yum
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/fedora-core-3
http://fedora.redhat.com/download/up2date-mirrors/updates-released-fc3
There was a fatal error communicating with the server. The message was:

An HTTP error occurred:
URL: http://fedoraproject.org/download/up2date-mirrors/fedora-core-3/headers/header.info
Status Code: 404
Error Message: Not Found
So, I searched mirror urls from google, but I can't get working rul.

Please let me know working url for redhat 9 fedora core 3.

My box is this.
Code:
root@:/root>uname -a
Linux www.dmcatholic.org 2.6.12-1.1381_FC3smp #1 SMP Fri Oct 21 04:03:26 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

But, frankly, I think it is about time for an upgrade. Your system is totally unsupported, which is why you won't find any official repositories anymore.

jay73/ Thanks for your kindness.
For upgrading my system, I'm afraid that it's so difficult.

You do understand that FC3 and RH9 are two totally different products? FC3 is what RHEL4 was based on. Thus there is a HUGE jump in technology between RH9 and FC3.

the standard support for the very old red hat 9 ended in 2003 .There have been NO updates to it in 6 years so even if you did get up2date to work .There is NOTHING for it to update .

and 90 + % of the old fedora rpm's will be incompatible with rh9

IT is past time to upgrade that computer

I'm all for staying with what you're used to but unfortunatly there comes a time... https://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora would be a good place to get some information on upgrading to Fedora 11 but if you want to stay with redhat then... you'll have to dish out some cash but it's findable here https://www.redhat.com/apps/download/ but I would suggest Fedora because it is free and is more supported on LQ

Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download/update (unlike RHEL) and is binary compatible with RHEL. Fedora only supports any one version for thirteen months, after that you are in the same situation as RH9. Centos has the same support life as RHEL(five years plus).
