If you think that you have a FAQ that's not answered here, or if you see something that needs a correction/update, feel free to contribute! The upgrades are usually very easy, much like Red Hat Linux 8 - Red Hat Linux 9. If you don't want to upgrade every 6 - 8 months, there is something called the Fedora Legacy Project.

They provide security patches for each version of Fedora for an additional 1 1/2 years after the Fedora Project stops their support.

I have tried to update the clamav package as it is a fair way out out of date however when I run the "yum update clamav" command i receive errors regarding repositories not being found.

I'm guessing that being version 5, they may no longer be around. Maybe you can adjust Pablo Two's advice to fit your needs?

My question is can I update from 5 to current version without killing this machine (given it acts as a mail server (among other things)? I've found some repository info for Fedora 6 here, repos. Doesn't answer your "can I upgrade" question but just thought the info might help.

well i heard people who know people who have relatives that tell them they have succesfully upgraded their fedora server twice in a row ....I've answered many basic questions in the Fedora Basics FAQ.Even if you're not new to Linux, you might find one or two helpful hints in there.This server runs as a firewall, sendmail mail server, with smfs-grey (and probably other milters), squid and most likely other services that I haven't got into yet.Also clamav is installed and works with sendmail to block out various nasties.You may not need to update whole of CLAMAV, updating virus defs should do it, although I have no personal experience with CLAMAV but this link looks useful (and I'm sure there are other such links).
