Hi, RObert -
Well, no - not necessarily. Remember, we try to keep as close to RHEL
as we can. In fact, I don't know of anything that's actually modified
to be special for CentOS, aside from the usual.
The *@home guys probably built their own RPMs or installs for their
setup. Even though it's based on CentOS, doesn't mean it has to BE
CentOS - it could be a heavily modified version, including additional
libraries which are mroe bleeding edge, e.g. libtiff-3.8.2.
Hope that clears some thigns up for you.
