Redhat Distros and specific RHEL 3.0/4.0 packages
By jim on Feb 02, 2005
Hey guys, If you don't have the user account to access to the Redhat network (RHN), you can fetch the source product from : http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/enterprise/
and compile the product by yourself then make the installation.
Also from this folder http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/ you can update (following same idea) most of the Redhat Distros.
Of course this idea is perfect for a single package...
What is the Redhat Network ?
It's the single way to download and update your RHEL Distro.
You can download new ISOs, new packages, or use the "up2date" command to update/upgrade your installed operating system.
Note: ISOs and the pre-compiled packages are not available to the public.
This is a comercial product and you'll only have access to the Redhat products by using an official account (eg. licence).
See http://www.redhat.com/software/rhn/ to get an overview about the Redhat Network.
