Comment 1 Todd Warner 2009-03-12 02:17:21 UTC
This needs to be fixed eventually and can't rely on a follow-on release. Satellite and Proxy 5.2 will be supported for a good long while. Unless, of course, folks get Proxy 5.3 docs with a Proxy 5.2 installation after 5.3 is released. Is that the case?

Comment 3 John Ha 2009-11-11 07:59:53 UTC
Rewritten to the following:

"Base operating system — RHN Proxy Server is supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3 Update 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The operating system can be installed from disc, local ISO image, kickstart, or any of the methods supported by Red Hat."

If this is correct, I will build this and push it to the redhat.com/docs website.

Comment 5 Brandon Perkins 2010-03-06 04:22:04 UTC
Verified.  Checked on:

https://rlx-3-14.rhndev.redhat.com/rhn/help//proxy/rhn530/en-US/ch-requirements.jsp

text now reads:

Base operating system — RHN Proxy Server is supported with Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 4 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The operating system can be installed from disc, local ISO image, kickstart, or any of the methods supported by Red Hat.
