The main thing I was thinking of is all the updated packages
that followed along the kernel development such as GCC, Libc, Modules
Pcmcia, PPP. etc. Any way I am having a horrible experience trying to
switch
to RedHat as my base because my hardware didn't match their 1.2.13
configurations . IE mixed drives with ide as root but SCSI as swap
a definate winner for swap. Laptop with PCMCIA controller
not supported under 1.2.13.
The point is I started tracking 1.3... months ago anticipating
that 2.0.0 would really mean time for a complete update including
many utilities GCC and Libc. I think I'll try a recompile although
RedHat was fairly recent.
I can't recomend a jump yet until the disributions catch up
RedHat claims only 11 packages needed changing but I updated to them
and had to immeadiately reinstall modules-2.0.0
