    Well search this forums and you will know... Fedora 4 works really well. Since Fedora 5 have changed libraries cPanel finds it difficult.

    According to the cPanel Web site, Fedora 3, 4 are only supported.

    Is there any reason why you want to go for FC?

    It's not generally recommend for production servers and you'll find that it has a relatively short lifetime.

    Have you considered CentOS instead?

    What does 2.4 offer that 2.3 doesn't?

    There's quite a difference between want and need. What you need is a stable OS that will provide a reliable service, in which case choosing FC5 merely because of one library seems a pretty risky choice.

    Unless, of course, the server is just for your own private use, in which case feel free to do what you like! Out of interest, what do you intend to use the server for such that FC5/glibc 2.4 are necessary?

    i understand you, i "need" glibc-2.4 not just "want" it... this new version detects some specific options in the virtualizaton software kernel but glibc-2.3 just emulates an alternative but doesn't really detect it and so the performance is so bad compring to with glibc-2.4..
