Confirmed, I am getting my first taste of Centos this month. We needed
to use Centos to meet a client requirement. I could have the server up
in a few hours with FBSD.
At the moment I am waiting for the Linux admin to finish building custom
RPMs for everything I install because we need software either not in the
YUM repository, or not configured the same as the RPM maintainer
When I say "I'll just build from source" the blood runs out of his face
and he says "That is not a good idea, everything needs to be an RPM, it
would be bad, we can't do that".
What a pain.
Don't tell me I'm driving the cart!
