can the up2date utility in redhat 9 be modified so that it still works today? i'd like to build a server based on redhat 9 primarily for compatibilty with my hardware. this server will have a raid controller which the manufacturer "officially" supports for redhat 8, 9, or enterprise 3.
i know redhat 9 is not the latest and greatest, but since i'm building this server on a budget, i can't shell out money for an enterprise subscription. Also, since the manufacturer of my raid controller doesn't support the card on fedora i'd rather stick with rh9. perhaps it can be made to work under fedora, but again, the manufacturer "officially" supports rh9 so i can easily download drivers and documentation written for rh9 and 2.4.x kernel versions.
i know there is still community support for rh9. in fact, i see that the fedora legacy project still issues security updates for rh9 so i wonder if it is possible to modify the up2date utility pull updates from another update server?
I haven't tried it with up2date, but if you install YUM on the system you can have it automatically pull updates from fedoralegacy by modifying the config and pointing it to their RH9 repository. Personally I like YUM much better than up2date anyway.
