HI everybody, I wonder that if this is a correct way to upgrade RHEL 4.4 to RHEL 5.3.
you do not
red hat has never supported "upgrading" between MAJOR versions
also 5.3 is VERY old the current 5 is 5.8
and the CURRENT red hat version is RHEL 6.2
contact red hat and BUY the required license ( desktop is $299/ year )
if you are NOT going to pay for it then do NOT use red hat
instead install one of the FREE rebuilds
CentOS 6.2 ( or the OLD CentOS5.8)
ScientificLinux 6.2 ( or the older 5.8 )
but here there is a question as you may notice, that is, because only the kernel is upgrade to RHEL 5.3, but all the others like glib, system tools still remains unchanged, does this cause incompatibility problem between kernel RHEL 5.3 and RHEL 4.4 softwares(including libs)?
oh boy it dose
that computer should by rights not even boot
