FC12 end of life

Postby rgmhtt » Tue Nov 09, 2010 12:04 pm

I asked on the Fedora list and got a confirmation that end of life for FC12 is 12-2-10.

Kudos to all of you working on the FC14 port, put I hope that the Amahi FC12 -> FC14 upgrade will work OK sooner rather than later. It would be a bear to rebuild my Amahi server that I just launched last week...

I have some decisions to make over the next couple days on the order of doing things, but I suppose I will be in position to work on either a fresh FC14 install or a FC12 -> FC14 upgrade shortly as I have to replace my dedicated email server sooner rather than later...

Yes. I even checked the Amahi install instructions that the URL to the FC12 isos will be one that will work going forward, and it is.

But no more security patches.

And my mail server is still on FC10 with Bigfoot65's (with my help) email setup. So I was hoping that next week when I am home again, I would be working on upgrading it to FC12. But now I am thinking that perhaps I should hold out for a couple weeks and MAYBE FC14 will be here for Amahi...

Oh course a bigger issue is upgrading my DNS server from Centos 5.3 (and BIND 9.3.4-10). Should I just go to Centos 5.5 and BIND 9.3.6 and still not get DNSSEC? (I can do this in a day now, as I have practised this on another system.) Should I patch BIND on 5.5 with the beta 5.6 BIND 9.7 and keep patching until Centos 5.6 comes out? Should I move to FC14 for BIND 9.7 and by EoL for FC14, I can then fall back to Centos 5.6?

Oh, decisions, decisions.... I asked my buddy Rob Austein what he recommends...

BTW the mail server has been updated to F12 and will be updated to F14 when we get there :D
