How long will CentOS 4 be "supported"?

Post by daihard » 2007/05/02 18:12:52

As in, how long will Red Hat continue to provide security updates to the RHEL4/CentOS4 components?

I did a bit of googling around but could not find good answers.

TIA,
Dai

I think it's 7 years after the release.

Thanks for the quick response. Do you happen to have any reference to it, preferably on the Internet?

Thanks again,
Dai

Nope. I read it somewhere on the net, but don't recall where.
