How do I get new updates to Red Hat as they happen?

Keep your eye on:

http://www.redhat.com/errata

for new information we've made available since the current CD was pressed. Also check the contrib directory on our FTP mirrors for packages that users have contributed. We also make periodic announcements to the redhat-announce-list with updates.

H.2.7 What do I do if I have media (manual or CD) problems?

What do I do if I have media (manual or CD) problems?

If you are experiencing problems with the product you received (e.g., your manual is missing pages or your CD is scratched), please contact Red Hat Software at sales@redhat.com or by phone using the above contact information. The problem will be rectified promptly. Please do not report these problems on the redhat-list or to Red Hat Support, as they are likely isolated and your product will simply need to be replaced.

(Note: This is not a common problem, but it does happen from time to time.)

There have been several now. Here's a rundown:

H.2.11 What hardware does Red Hat Linux support?

What hardware does Red Hat Linux support?

For a current list of supported hardware, please see:

http://www.redhat.com/hardware

H.2.12 Why won't my Adaptec (274x, 284x) work?

Why won't my Adaptec (274x, 284x) work?

The Adaptec 274x and 284x are supported but may need to be reconfigured to work properly. It has been reported that the wide negotiation on these cards is not quite working, so it should be disabled.

H.2.13 What applications are there for Red Hat Linux?

What applications are there for Red Hat Linux?

There are many applications for Linux available. Please see
http://www.redhat.com/linux-info and go to the ``Linux Applications and Utilities'' section. This section is maintained by a private individual that is not related to Red Hat in any way. You will find information on nearly every product available for Linux on his pages.

H.2.14 Does Red Hat Linux include source code?

Does Red Hat Linux include source code?

Yes. We include the exact source that was used to build the distribution. From release 2.0 on, Red Hat Linux is built with a packaging system called RPM that ONLY uses pristine source (the same as what you'd find at the author's site) and possibly a patch by Red Hat. Complete information on RPM is available on
http://www.redhat.com/.

H.2.15 Does Red Hat Linux support UMSDOS installs?

Does Red Hat Linux support UMSDOS installs?

No. It is not a good performance idea.
