    fedoralegacy kernels and fastservers.net

    Just wanted to write that fastservers upgraded our 7.3 box ( Very promptly) to the fedora legacy kernel which is now declared as stable.

    I am very happy with the company. They always give prompt and polite service. I am a customer for about 20 months now. Their support crew rocks.

    Does anyone know if servermatrix does the free upgrade to fedoralegacy kernels on our old boxes

    If you have their free Silver plan then they should -- I believe those type of updates are included. It's nothing at all difficult, I just upgraded mine.

    SM does not install fedoralegacy kernels ,
    Surprising why as the procedure is same installing it from the rpms.

    They quoted me 75$ per hour to upgrade to a fedora kernel ( I have the silver plan)

    With 'yum' being available, there's no need to fork out $75, although they should install the fedoralegacy kernels.

    Way to much, get someone else to do it from source.

    Hello Guys
    Used yum to upgrade it to the latest version , Nice little utility provided by fedoralegacy i must say.
    Took under 10 minutes to do the same, usually we always ask server provider to upgrade the kernel for us.

    Whats important is that fastservers did upgrade it for us for free whereas Sm didnt. SM is the one who claims to be managed.

    Still both these companies are fine to deal with but i would say FS has an edge for support over SM

    Any idea if there is going to be a sort of EOL for fedoralegacy. How long would they be providing these updates
