Description Ken Ganong 2006-12-11 22:38:07 UTC
Our install script cares about the OS version its running on.

Currently, our install script runs this code:
rpm -q --queryformat '%{version} %{release} %{epoch}' --whatprovides redhat-release

Then it grabs the version and compares it to 3AS or 4AS.
It exits without installing if the version isn't either of those.

We need it to not allow 3AS and to allow 5Server

Comment 1 Ken Ganong 2006-12-11 22:40:58 UTC
So, there is another problem.
allowing 4AS and 5Server is the 'correct' thing to do when we release.

However, our current RHEL5 isos show the version as 4.92Server.
Therefore we need to accept that for creating testing isos, but remove it when
we go live.
