The Fedora Legacy Project

Link: http://www.fedoralegacy.org/

Anyways, the issue of keeping up to date on security issues continues to be a problem with these boxes. So, it has been on the back of my mind on whether I should break things by upgrading to the latest version of Fedora or something. Given the recently fun I had upgrading my SuSE 8.2 box to 9.3...I was feeling that maybe I would investigate doing something risky like this as part of my legacy to my manager :>>

But, while searching online to see if anybody else had experienced this already...I came across "The Fedora Legacy Project".

The goal of The Fedora Legacy Project is to work with the Linux community to provide security and critical bug fix errata packages for select End of Life Red Hat Linux and Fedora Core distributions. This will allow for a longer effective life for those releases.

Well, that kind of fits exactly, what I'm looking for, eh? Though the only problem is that they dropped support for RedHat 7.2 back in May, and the suggested action is upgrade to 7.3

I guess I could do that....the NFS and CVS boxes at work are already 7.3, it is the NIS boxes that are 7.2. And, I could upgrade the slave server first, and if that doesn't work...I won't be screwed.

Though I'm not sure about upgrading my home box. It would be harder to recover if something goes wrong. Though I suppose if both upgrades at work go without any problems, I might chance it. Though I might wait until I get all the hardware bits for the upgrade I plan to do the box.

Which kind of gives me an out if things go horribly wrong. I plan to upgrade the 80 and 120 GB drives to 250 (or bigger) drives...though there are other drive upgrades that I'm also planning, so not sure exactly when I'll get to it. But, doing the OS right after the old system is copied to the new drives seems that it would be the right moment to take that chance..... |-|

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
