Well, I took the plunge and purchased RH ES 4. Coming from a Debian distro background, RedHat seems weird. I did use RH many, many years ago. But I have been using debian for at least 6 years now.
The install was very easy. My problem is installing the required programs before installing Zimbra.
I am not finding nptl, compat-libstdcc++-33 or libstdcc++-296 on the system. I have checked into the Redhat Network, registered my computer, updated... all has gone well.
I have marked nptl-devel-2.3.4-2.25 to be installed. I assume this is the correct package. It is marked in my que on Redhat network waiting to be install.... but it doesn't install. If I check for updates from my computer, it says I am up-to-date. The Redhat Network says my computer is checking in and there is one event waiting to install.
How do I get it to actually install????
Also, I can not find a compat-libstdcc++-33 file to install for RH ES 4.
At lastly, do I need to install BOTH compat-libstdcc++-33 AND compat-libstdcc++-296, or just compat-libstdcc++-296 since I have RH ES?
I've been managing Linux computers for 9 years but I feel like a babe in the woods with RH. Now, when others have problems with Debian, I don't get to feel so smug.
