Sorry, I've got 3 questions. I think there pretty much along the lines of what ravi_nandula was asking
1. I've been getting a lot of varying information about yum vs rpm. I've been under the impression that sticking with yum update means I'm using the more "official" (tested), and that rpm's are newer releases and less tested. Is this true, or is the difference just manual vs automatic?
2. Someone posted on another topic "your not up-to-date unless your running CentOS 5.8". I'm running CentOS 5.6 and yum says there are no available updates. I assume to get to 5.8 I'd have to go find an rpm? What is the general recommendation? (if any)
3. I used yum to update my main and test servers both as high as they could go. The versions for everything on my test server were slightly higher. I have some guesses as to why, but I was hoping someone could give me a definitive answer?
This is my first post, Thanks in advance for the help!
