Thread: News Story RH7.3 is out?

    News Story RH7.3 is out?

    Hey all since I invested in a cdrw I thought about burning the RH7.3 ISO's. Before I waste another 5 cd's at what .25 cents? I thought I would ask if anyone has touched the new version yet and get your thoughts.

    It says it come with 2.4.18 kernel.
    KDE3
    and it looks like it went Ximian for Gnome (Evolution)

    Your comments?

    I haven't really touched 7.3 but since 7.2.93 is practically the same as 7.3. Anyways I would highly recommend it.

    They didn't go completely Ximian, they just included Ximian's Evolution app. That's the only dirty Ximian package on the distro.

    The rest is quite nice. Smooth upgrade from 7.2, no issues so far.

    Well, I would definatly back it up first, mondo is good for that ( www.mondorescue.org ) but I did the 7.2 to 7.3 upgrade, and it was smooth as silk. Of course, I didn't have a dirty install of a bunch of non Red Hat rpms though.....

    Yes. It is.

    When you boot up the new Red Hat CD, it should give you about 6 or 7 choices of installation options including ( but not limited to and a little different wording ) a fresh install, upgrade, repair, rescue, and others.
