say bob...

it appears some would like to have the proverbial question "how can i do X"
removed as well, particularly if X isn't somehow a direct centos issue.
however, it might be that X is indeed a package in the centos mirror!!

for my $0.02 worth, asking a question never hurts, and you can always choose
to not reply, while someone else might repsond with the answer, which then
might even help someone else who's later searching through the archives!!!

Hm. CentOS is a renamed, compiled from source, of the Red Hat sources
with a CentOS logo inserted at appropriate places plus, perhaps other
changes as required. Having said that and your comment above seems to
leave *very* little to discuss on this list. Since *any* Linux based
distribution includes hundreds of packages, it is my very humble opinion
that this list is the starting place for, especially the very new people
or those with little time to *really* learn the administration of an
operating system such as CentOS. I would would expect the maintainers of
this list to understand this.

I have been running Red Hat since I purchased Linux Unleashed, First
Edition, Copyright 1995 with one CD that contained three complete
distributions with sources. Look at the expansion of the base
distribution now. Personally, I'm *way* behind!

Of course this crap should *not* be tolerated, including spam.
Enough soap box from me.
