Thank you Dennis,
It is a very, very useful document.
Checking both distros RHEL and CentOS there are only old packages available
(version 1.1.3) and only i386.
I have a rpm already built but it is not properly working.
Based on what you described in the doc I better install the old version and
yum upgrade freeradius
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.voxitas.com
* updates: ftp.telus.net
* addons: mirrors.cat.pdx.edu
* extras: yum.singlehop.com
Setting up Upgrade Process
Could not find update match for freeradius
No Packages marked for Update
As you can see there is no update available.
So I am in the worst situation and have no choice other that rpmbuild. I am
on CentOS 64 and I need Mysql.
The link you have provided in the doc is for fedora only.
Could you please inform from where I can get the spec file for CentOS 64
with MySql ?
