  • Moving from RedHat may be an option for home use, but my two jobs won't be migrating from RH any time soon. And here's a confession: I like Red Hat. Yup. I like RPMs and SRPMs. I've even figured out how to use chkconfig to register my sysV init scripts. Would it be cool is rpm was more like CPAN, in that it sought out missing dependencies over the net for you? Sure. I know that's what RHN is all about.

    That said, only a fool wouldn't try to avoid making the same mistake again. I will certainly look into keeping a few stactically compiled apps around, although please note that even init was hosed by the upgrade (talk about a candidate for static compilation). I suppose I should compile some shell and halt at a minimim. Perhaps sync and mount (and umount) too. Then I can use the RH install disk to repair the system.
