OK..here's the rundown...
Server is running RedHat Enterprise 4
All Clients running RedHat Enterprise 5 Client
All programs are compiled for RedHat Ent4 and are stored in /usr/local.
/usr/local and all home directories are stored on the server and
automounted to the clients.
Of course now that I have all my clients running RHEnt5 I'm starting to
see some issues pop up.
1. Firefox tends to crash randomly. Traced problem to a possible
interaction issue between the compiled program in RHEnt4 and the support
libraries needed by firefox that are found on the Ent5 clients.
2. Some Matlab scripts are running slow. A code that took 0.1 seconds
to run before the upgrade now takes 35 seconds to run
3. C++ compilers that came with Ent5 on the clients seems to run slow
Does anyone know of any problems between RedHat Ent4 and Ent5? I mean I
know they are different versions but they can't be THAT different from
each other. I'd expect interaction problems between Redhat and say
Ubuntu systems for example but not two sucessive versions of RedHat
