some questions to clarify


Happy Friday =)

I just have twp questions. I am using Redhat WS3 and I am wondering that can I download the files (.rpm)that are for Fedora 2 or redhat 9 to my system? will it cause any problem?
and also if the driver is support up to version 2.4.20-28 but I am using 2.4.21-20 version. can the driver still work in my system?

Thanks

:-) OK, let's fun go away ;-)

That was answer to all three questions.
I do not have any problems when using rpms from other distros.
And drivers can work too, but rpm may be complaining, co it's better to download proper version.
In most cases --nodeps helps without any problems. Consider a little risk when using --nodeps, risk is bigger when using really different versions.
