Unfortunately, the third-party software will be > a binary that was built against specific library versions. > all subversions and incremental updates of a RHEL/CentOS major version use the same library versions, they backpatch critical updates and bugfixes. For instance, CentOS5 has glibc 2.5, python 2.4.3, apache httpd 2.2.3, php 5.1.6, ... it will always have these versions regardless of updates. the only time incremental updates should break things on a RHEL/CentOS system is add-on kernel modules and drivers, these need to be reinstalled after each incremental kernel update.
