Using old/CentOS repositories in Fedora
Hi All

I am just started at a new company, installed my machine with fedora 16... looking good.

Now I discover that all the companies websites (that I will be working on) are written in php-5.2, currently unsupported.

Are there any consequences to using an old fedora or centos repository to get php-5.2.

I know how to install new repos include/exclude certain packages. I just want to know if the rpms will play nicely.

I would avoid centos ones, but older fedora ones should be OK. Are you sure that it actually matters about using 5.2 vs 5.3? It certainly is one less concern if you are on the same version, sure.

Actually though, 5.2 was fc7 / 8 era, so you might even struggle to find them at all now!

Cool, I will have crack at that and let you know how I get on.
