How can I tell the difference between sysstat distributed by RedHat and
the original developer's versions?
Could I install a version of sysstat not listed on RedHat's websit?
If I would loose RedHat support by installing another sysstat package, how
can I tell if RedHat supports a specific version?
Should I only get the package off the CD or from the RH website?
Steps to Reproduce:
Just a question of determining which sysstat is supported.
Actual Results: Confusion.
Expected Results: get sar to work
Can sysstat-3.3.3-1 distributed from RedHat 7.0 be installed and supported on
Or would it be better to use the Linux general sysstat package?
If there is a better place to ask questions on sysstat support on RedHat,
let me know.
We don't officially support running packages from newer releases on older
versions of Red Hat Linux, unless we have made an official update (available
ftom updates.redhat.com or Red Hat Network). So for 6.2, you can either
recompile/use the 7.0 packages, or the maintainer's version of the packages,
your choice. In either case, we don't officially support this on 6.2.
That isn't to say it won't work.
