As some CentOS4 users may know... CentOS4.4 has been released for a while.
If you are a CentOS user and did not know about this upgrade, here is your reminder! As for the rest that did, and have upgraded, how did it go? I know there were some complaints about the postfix's main.cf file being overwritten and a few other things.
i guess its my own falt for runnign yum update as a cron but my networking comited suiced very funny (well my hosting tec dident) still its all standared with a basic ent os and direct admin so its all normal apps. so why did it go so wrong.
That's a simple issue to fix, actually, done it quite some time over the past few weeks. This happens with RHEL and CentOS servers, must be an issue with the original packages from RH.
I'm still on 3.7, is there any good reason to ugprade?
The 2.6 kernel, udev (don't think that beast is in 3.7), any number of reasons.
The 3.x series is still being developed, albeit slowly, so there's no real reason to freak out , but you do NOT want to upgrade to 4.x unless you know what you're doing, because that can (and most likely will) fry quite a few things It's not really as simple as just updating the rpms, hence the reason it's a whole new version, not just subversion

The only issue I had when going from 4.3 to 4.4 was that /etc/localtime was replaced with U.S. Pacific time. Otherwise the upgrade was flawless. I don't run bind on my machine so that might be a bit of it. httpd is still far enough behind that I run my own version of it too.

The upgrade went fine on my testserver, havn't tried it on my production server yet. I'm not using bind so hopefully it'll go fine. I had a little hickup with the httpd and mod_perl upgrade, but it was fairly easy to fix
