RE: [K12OSN] Too upgrade to Fedora Core 2 thats question



John,  just bought a copy of Red Hat Enterprise Linux to evaluate for
$50.00 the price is hard to beat.  I am installing it now.  Did you
build your own samba installation or do you use a rpm install with wbel?
Because, I am currently using a RPM from the Samba site version 3.04 for
Red Hat 9.  I will see if Redhat update updates there Samba to that
version.

Thanks
-Glenn

Glen,

" Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS

I see openldap-servers so it looks like it's covered.

I have installed SambaLDAP per David Trasks nice how-to on both Fedora
Core 2 and WBEL respin 1.

I couldn't get directory-administrator (One of my requirements is to
have a gui front end) to load on FC 2 (dependency hell). 

So far everything is looking good on WBEL. But I don't know how many
people are actively maintaining WBEL. 

50.00 RHEL might be the way to go for us but, I'm still considering
Fedora because that is the track K12LTSP is on and I don't like the idea
of going here and there for updates. As it is now we are NT, K12LTSP ver
3.1, Fedora Core 1, SME, and smoothwall. I'd love to get everything to
one distro :-)

-John
