Updating required package in CentOS


So i have a small home server i need to setup. I used to have arch linux installed, but i found it unstable and more difficult to maintain. So i heard about the stability if CentOS and decided to try it out. I got samba setup no problem, but cups i cannot get to work. The orinter driver for my epson workforce 500 requires lsb 3.2 whereas lsb installed in centos is only 3.1. What can i do to fix this? Should i just go with fedora instead?

Thanks.

Assuming you're on CentOS 5.5 now? Yes.

Yes to Fedora. CentOS is old (by design).

There are no updates for 'redhat-lsb', CentOS 5.5 .
Version 3.2 is was used first time in Fedora 11.

Suggest : rebuild the Fedora 11 SRC.RPM to CentOS.
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...3.fc11.src.rpm

rpmbuild --rebuild redhat-lsb-3.2-3.fc11.src.rpm
Or : rpmbuild -bb redhat-lsb.spec
........

Setting up an unprivileged rpm account in /home/<user>/ :

well I tried that and it gave me md5 sum errors. So I think instead of trying to work around it i'll just install Fedora and see how it goes. I hope its stable enough. Thanks.

Odd. The only warning I got was
Code:
]$ rpmbuild -bb redhat-lsb.spec 
error: Failed build dependencies:
        glibc-static is needed by redhat-lsb-3.2-3.fc11.i686
but commenting out "BuildRequires: glibc-static" (just for the sake of seeing where it fails elsewhere) builds the package OK.

Well upon further research of Fedora, it requires you to upgrade every year ... this is not what I want at all. I love Red Hat distros and the yum package system, but I'm almost more inclined to go to Ubuntu for this.
