Red Hat Enterprise 3 Update 3 Released to RHN
Submitted by cranch 2004-09-02 Red Hat 9 Comments
Only the beta ISO for Update 3 is posted on RHN at the moment. I’m sure the final one will be posted soon.
In the middle of a massive up2date — it appears rhn died.
Now, repeated attempts to run get:
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOLLOWS:

Thank you for using Red Hat Network.

Hopefully this gets cleared up soon, as this is a production mail server….
As usual :
Is this still going on? I haven’t been able to get updates for quite some time today.
I just updated a few systems here at work. It was down approx. 5 PM Central time yesterday but seems to have been up since for me…
Did anyone update there samba package before and break samba. I did and printing and samba shares were brokn
All I can see for RedHat now is a domino effect. The end is near!….. RedHat can’t even properly support those who spend big on them. I was a huge supporter of RedHat until they decided to abandon the very people who supported, and promoted them for years, and by that I do mean the home user. Without the home user their commercial versions and Enterprise versions (as its now called) wouldn’t even be in most Universities, or businesses. It was the home user who tried and tested their distro and then convinced management to migrate to linux using RedHat.
What RedHat did (abandoning the home user) was a VERY bad move and they will soon see that as their profits start to dwindel along with their stocks.
I am now looking at other alternatives to migrate quite a number of servers where I work because of what RedHat did.
How did RH abandon OSS, they still support it, everything they work on is GPLd, they gave fedora to the community, if you dont like that then use WhiteBox Linux or others like it.
The only reason they went the way they did was they couldnt give free support and try to sell support to corporate customers. At the same time the coroporate cusomters had different goals to the community.
With fedora they can push the new technologies like the community like, and for Enterprise they could slow down release cycles etc…
So please explain how have they abandon the community, do they hide any of there developments, dont they help gnome and other projects ? or is it simply because you are to tight to buy there support and are upset ?
I user Fedora at the moment, but if i really wanted something less fast paced, then i would get the RH enterprise server, or if i couldnt afford it there are plenty of alternative like White Box Linux.
So please stop ranting on about them going down.
Time will tell
