RHEL 3.0 -- major application versions


Looking for a feature list of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0. What I'm looking for are the versions of major applications that ship with 3.0.

--Mozilla
--Gnome
--Evolution
--Open Office
--any other big ones, etc

Thanks.

RHEL 3.0? Is there such a release? RHEL 2.1 was based on RHL 7.2, so a guess would be that RHEL 3.0 is based on a more recent release, RHL 9.0 maybe, with RHEL you buying support and a more features, as it is a commercial product you'd probably be best off emailing Red Hat for a list, nothing on their website.

Yea, there's nothing on their website.

I was thinking of buying RHEL 3.0 WS Basic Edition (only $179). I use a linux desktop at my office, and I just wanted something super-stable that I didn't have to tinker with and that I would never really play around with different configurations. Basically, just something that sits there and *works*.

But I need to evaluate which versions are shipping with the 3.0 product, since I am considering purchasing Ximian Connector which requires version 4.5 or later of Evolution. And, I don't want to be using an old release of Gnome, or Mozilla, etc...

You are correct, there is no information that I could find on the redhat website.

*bump*

Is this the Red Hat forum, or the Fedora forum.

Because this post is concerning a question about an actual Red Hat product.

Thanks.

The answers you seek can be found here , Red Hat's FTP site of the last beta. I'll summarize for you:

Kernel 2.4.21
XFree86 4.3.0
gcc 3.2.3
Gnome 2.2
KDE 3.1.3
Mozilla 1.4
OpenOffice.org 1.0.2
Evolution 1.4

Yeah, it sucks that OpenOffice.org is still at 1.0.2, but 1.1 was just released three days ago, making it hard to include in the final release of RHEL 3. Also, I read somewhere that someone at RedHat was having trouble making RPMs for even 1.0.3.
