End of Life times (Fedora Core 1, 2, Red Hat Linux 7.3, 9)

July 26th, 2006 | Tags:


The Fedora legacy project has announced that they will discontinue errata updates starting in October. I have a few clients with servers still running 7.3 and 9. RHEL or CentOS is the currently the obvious choice to replace these old Red Hat installs.

Red Hat will provide errata for RHEL4 until February 2010 and RHEL3 is covered until October of 2008. Red Hat has stated they will support each RHEL release for 5 years.

I determined the following release dates from the RHEL listing on http://www.distrowatch.com

RHEL3: 2003/10/22
RHEL4: 2005/02/15
