    You're taking a risk upgrading the dag repo rpm's. By installing those rpm's your installing non official rpm packages ( not released by fedoralegacy, but dag ). Install at your own risk.

    You may also want to consider upgrading your OS to a supported ( non EOL ) distro, such as RHEL or CentOS. Dag AFAIK will be dropping support for legacy Redhat linux in the not so distant future ( according to his web site ).

    That said, I have updated various packages on CentOS 3.4 with rpm's from dag's repo without a single issue with cPanel.

    yeah i'm not quite happy with RH9.. i run CentOS 4 here at home and am really impressed with it. My current DC doesn't have CentOS on their list of installable distro's, and I cant get a strait answer out of them if they would install it...

    also i'm waiting on getting a rent-to-own server becuase i fell like i am just wasting money renting, and really get nothing in the end...


    thanks for your input, I think I will leave it as is.. it seems happy enough.. i use dag for most of my linux installs, and he seems to have a good thing going there...(no problems so far)

    You can easily use yum to upgrade your OS to CentOS. Contact me if you want help or instructions for it.
