I have been tested RT for 2-3 months and want to put it in production.
I made the tests on Fedora Core 2 which comes with perl >= 5.8.3.
Now our preferred platform is Scientific Linux 3.02 which is based on
RedHat Enterprise Linux RHEL3 update 2. I could also use the new version
based on RHEL3 update 3.
The problem is that perl on RHEL3 is 5.8.0. I tried to upgrade it by
rebuilding Fedora Core 2 perl SRPMS packages on SL.
I came accross many problems (mod_perl not working, etc…). The whole
thing seems unstable now.
I have several possibilities now and I am asking for advice :
a) Re-install Scientific Linux without perl if possible and add
perl an mod_perl later based on FC2 SRPMS packages like I did.
This is mostly what I tried already but starting without perl installed.
But I am afraid this could cause problems later when updating
b) Use a Fedora Core 2 platform like I did. I need an additional
machine for RT only because this platform cannot be shared with
other applications I have on SL.
c) Use RPM packages for RHEL. Theses packages are RT V3.0.10-3.
Here, the question is : what are the differences between RT 3.2
(tarball edition) and RT 3.0.10-3 in theses packages ?
