installing RH5.2 RPMs on RH5.1 system?

Post by Michal Szymans » Tue, 01 Dec 1998 04:00:00



Hi all,

I've noticed that many packages are now being developed only
in RH5.2 (newer and newer versions) - probably RH5.1's "updates"
contain only those which **required** upgrade due to some
important bugs/security issues.

My Q is: is it safe/advisable to upgrade RH5.1 system using RH5.2
RPMs? Do the minor releases of RH differ in anything more "basic"
than just a list of RPMs with different versions?

regards, Michal.

I have installed several of the 5.2 packages on my 5.1 system without
any problems: XFree, gtk+.

Don't upgrade glint, they've changed the database format.
