CentOS 4 has RPM's not in EL 4

Post by nosrednakram » 2006/09/14 03:39:41

Hello,

I am curious about the compatability between CentOS 4 and ES and AS 4 and am not able to locate the following rpm's in either RH distribution or in the RH Eratta but they are available in Centos.

python-urlgrabber-2.9.6-2.noarch.rpm
sqlite-3.2.2-1.i386.rpm
python-elementtree-1.2.6-4.i386.rpm
python-sqlite-1.1.6-1.i386.rpm

Are they part of WS or are you incorperating parts of FC or am I simply just not looking in the correct place? Were I am concerned is with package compatability. If these are not part of the RH 4 offering I am concerned that this will degrade the usefulness of CentOS for the purposes of development and testing. I would hate to develop an application assuming it will work on the corresponding RH version only to find out that it won't without third party modules being introduced and possibly not maintained by the OS distributer. I had up2date pull a full lising of all available rpms from RH and they are not listed there either.
Thank you,
Mark Anderson

Red Hat does not use yum and CentOS does for system updates, the four packages list are required for yum.
