Is there a official list of supported Operating Systems for FMS 4.5 ?
I'm specifically asking as it comes up with CentOS 6.x as a "not supported" message during/after install, however, I'd personally consider CentOS 6.2 as the "standard OS version" by now. Please can you let me know what exactly is considered as "stable and fully supported" so that I can plan the roll-out of FMS 4.5 accordingly ?
Also, if CentOS 6.x is _not_ supported - when will 6.x support be added (via Patch / Update) ?
The officially supported platform for 4.5 can be found here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flash-media-interactive/tech-specs.html.
If am not wrong CentOS 6 was officially released somewhere in July 2011 which was way after our 4.5 release was decided. I am not sure whether we would be supporting 6.0 for upcoming release to due to some internal reasons - so if you want full support for 4.5 release - i would suggest you should use CentOS 5.5 - i suppose even 5.8 might work fine because its just upgrade and not major version change.
I did check that link before posting but the wording is somewhat vague as it says "minimum system requirements" and not i.e. "Supported OS" - hence my post - but - in terms of Centos 5.5 - 5.5. is not actually available anymore and one can only download Centos 5.8 so am I right to expect that to be "the supported CentOS 5" OS version ?
If that's how it is and there is no way for you to get 5.5 - i think you can go ahead and use 5.8. I dont think you will find any issues but in case If you do find any issues i think we should be able to fix them for you as you did not have choice of gettting 5.5 at first place.
CentOS 5.5 is still available for download. See link below for information.
In my experience, FMS has no particular dependency on 5.5, and running on 5.8 seems to be OK.
Thats fair, but as with any production system, receiving at least security updates is a requirement.
In that same readme file, it says :
If you know what you are doing, and absolutely want to remain at the 5.5 level, go to http://vault.centos.org/ for packages.
Please keep in mind that 5.5 no longer gets any updates
Just to clarify,
I do have FMS 4.5 running good on Centos 5.8 - i'm simply looking for a clear YES or NO of whether, if there are issues with FMS, I will get support from Adobe running FMS 4.5 on Centos 5.8.
