    What agent for Fedora Core, if any?

      Subject says it all pretty much - is there an RSCD agent that works on fedora core? Version is 6 on at least some servers. Thanks.

          technically we don't support fedora core.


          i have the rhas3 agent running on a fedora 8 box and it seems to be ok.

            Does anyone know of where to find the mappings between the versions of FC and RH? For example, with Fedora Core 4, which agent would be appropriate?

              This article answers my question:




              And here is the relevant excerpt.


              The relationship between the community Fedora Core releases and Red Hat's commercialized Enterprise Linux releases tends to ebb and flow over time. Sometimes, Fedora Core gets way ahead of Enterprise Linux, as was the case with Fedora Core 5, the first release from Red Hat to play around with the Xen virtual machine hypervisor from XenSource; it also added support for the Mono clone of the .NET environment, and Yum package installer tools. In this case, Fedora Core 5, which came out in March 2006, was way ahead of the then-current Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 commercial release. It was basically laying the second phase of the groundwork for Fedora Core 6, which in turn is the basis of the future RHEL 5 release. Fedora Core 4, which was launched in June 2005, was a very early foundation of the future RHEL 5 as well, since it had a very early implementation of Xen hypervisors and was built using the GNU gcc 4 compilers. Fedora Core 3, the first community-driven development release, came out in November 2004 and was the foundation for RHEL 4, which launched in February 2005. The Fedora Project was created in November 2003, and the project managed the transition of RHEL from the Linux 2.4 kernel to the Linux 2.6 kernel in the early years.
