This document has been written for RedHat Linux and must equally work for Trustix, although it hasn't been tested with the latter. Please contact us if you know any specifics for Trustix.

When you update Linux automatically by means of up2date, apt-get, SWUP, yum or other RPM updaters, you must beforehand exclude some packages installed with H-Sphere from the update list:

  • rh-postgres, postgresql, postgresql-server, postgresql-libs on CP and user postgresql boxes
  • apache and apache-related packages on H-Sphere CP, WEB and MAIL boxes
  • rsync on all H-Sphere boxes
  • gettext on all H-Sphere boxes
  • proftpd, frontpage and related packages on H-Sphere WEB boxes
  • qmail, vpopmail, ezmlm, sqwebmail and related packages on H-Sphere MAIL boxes
  • bind and related packages on H-Sphere DNS boxes
  • aspell/ispell/pspell on CP
  • XFree86 packages on CP: XFree86-base-fonts, XFree86-font-utils, XFree86-libs, XFree86-libs-data, XFree86-xfs, XFree86-Xvfb. This is critical particularly for SiteStudio

Please note that these packages are also to be removed while preparing servers to H-Sphere installation.

If you have accidentally upgraded your RedHat without excluding these packages, you need to downgrade PostgreSQL.
