Compatibility IS there for such third party applications - You just have to
know what compat libraries you need for yum and install them by hand before
installing your app.
I guess then the real issue is in this case you have to know what to install,
and that can be non-obvious.
I might be wrong, since it was a while since I installed FC5, but is there not
an option during package selection to install legacy support ? If so, I would
imagine just selecting this would give all you need ?
It seems our main difference of opinion is based around whether it is
installed by default or not. I say support is there, since the libraries are
available if needed. You say it isn't as these libraries are not installed by
default. I guess we have to agree to disagree here.
