Recommended server platform is RedHat 7.3, since all development and production servers in use by the NRH team are of this release.
NRH-up2date will work in RedHat 8.0, but the NRH development team does not consider 8.0 a viable server platform, in addition to results of benchmarks that show, that all rpm-related actions are 3-4 times slower on RedHat 8.0 than on 7.3 . While using RedHat 8.0 you should also expect hangs of rpm related operations, the description of the problem is in RedHat's bugzilla, bug id 73097. RedHat 9 is not much better in this area - bug id 88720
Update 4-JAN-2004 : NRH-up2date was tested as server and client on RHES 3. Python and perl modules are rebuilt and provided for this platform.
