    I doubt it, but I manage for several clients, and they all have different choices in this regard, so the poll format is really inconvenient right now...

    Are you automating the progeny downloads? If so, how?

    Well, I bought Progeny services, but that was before I found out about Legacy. Why pay for Progeny when you can get the same thing for free? I'll be using Legacy for RH9.

    Well, our plan was to move off of redhat to FreeBSD and use legacy for updates before the transition. It just doesn't look like legacy is pulling it together. I just don't think they have resources to take care of business. So we're probably going to try out progeny for the time being while our new servers are being built.

    I tried FreeBSD, but it just doesn't cut it when it comes to postgresql and tomcat. I need both of these so I'm going to stick with the old Redhats. I have progeny, but so far I have seen nothing that makes it better than legacy. To their credit, they came out with the latest kernel a full day before legacy.

    For what distro did legacy release a kernel for? Still don't see an updated 7.3 kernel.

    Anyone applied the new progeny kernel-2.4.20-29.7 ?
    Which is the best procedure to apply this patch safety (without messing the box) ?


    Thanks

    I'm seriously only curious, but why would you put a progeny kernel on your server and not one of these? They both came out at the same time with the same amount of warning. Is it just that you trust the progeny team more?

    Well,

    1. I just don't trust a testing kernel on a server
    2. We're not using progeny yet.. and may never.
