Fedora's Legacy Wanes

Filed under
Linux

Running an older version of Red Hat's Fedora Core Linux? Bad news: You're no longer being supported.

The Fedora Legacy Project is in "transition" and is closing its doors.

Effective this week the project is no longer supporting Fedora Core 4 and earlier distributions.

"The current model for supporting maintenance distributions is being re-examined," the Fedora Legacy wiki states. "In the meantime, we are unable to extend support to older Fedora Core releases as we had planned."

Fedora Legacy began after Red Hat discontinued its namesake Red Hat Linux distribution, launching the Fedora Core distribution in its stead. Legacy provides support for out-of-cycle Fedora Core releases that Red Hat's main Fedora project no longer support.
