Post by rootkrieger » 2020/03/26 05:29:01

Fedora 28 has ekiga by default, but Centos 8 based on RHEL 8 based on Fedora 28 is not, why?

In CentOS 7 ekiga was part of the distro. In CentOS/RHEL 8 Red Hat have chosen to remove it. You might try looking on bugzilla.redhat.com in the Fedora EPEL section to see if anyone has requested that the Fedora maintainer for the package branch it for EPEL and if no-one has, then raise a ticket and ask.

CentOS only rebuilds what is in RHEL so if it's missing from RHEL it will not be in CentOS.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
