I've built rpms for and and installed OL 2.4.6 on my Fedora FC6
test/production machine. The rpms were built from a Mandriva cooker srpm
built by Buchan Milne, with a slightly adapted spec file, which
adaptations I've let Buchan know about.
Experience to date suggests that 2.4.6 is a drop in for the 2.3.39 that
it was running, with the exception that a few of the spec file
parameters had to be changed for FC6, but more importantly that a couple
of the basic ACLs had to be changed: It seems that 2.4 is more picky
about ACLs than 2.3.
It's running well for basic user authentication, smtp and IMAP and
coping as well as 2.3.39 did. Now I've got it running, I'm looking at
the Administrator's Guide for 2.4. This is a fantastic, hugely amended
and augmented document in comparison to the 2.3 Admin Guide. I suppose
it was Gavin Henry (http://www.suretecsystems.com/) who is responsible
for it but can't be sure. Anyway, it's going to cost me a couple of days
to go through it and see what more OL 2.4 can mean for my production
systems than 2.3.
I trust than Buchan will provide an srpm for Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora
people at http://staff.telkomsa.net/packages before long.
