RH5 updates on redhat ftp site?


Redhat's ftp site, ftp.redhat.com, has an updates directory under
ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linu...es/enterprise/ .

It looks to me like it contains files for redhat releases up to 4, but nothing for 5. Can anyone explain to me why this is like this, and where I can find RH 5 updates? Are all RPM updates for RH5 under ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linu...rprise/5Server and 5Client?

Hi,

the distributed files are source rpm packages for the updates. Not sure where RH does provide update for RHEL5.

If you are looking for binary rpm's you should have a support contract and registration with Redhat.
