How to check latest software versions on Fedora Core 6?

Hello everybody,

I want to upgrade from PHP 5.1 to 5.2 on Fedora Core 6 but using the RPM method it is simply not possible because of all the dependency issues that arise.

I tried using YUM to update it but it said my PHP version was up to date and I believe that is because PHP 5.1 is the latest version for Fedora Core 6.

Does anyone know how I can see what the latest software versions are for the differen Fedora Core distros?  Is thre a website that will show PHP 5.1 is the latest version for Fedora Core 6 so I can research what version of Fedora Core I need to install to run PHP 5.2?

Thanks!!

You can find all the package details for Fedora distributions at http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=fedora

Looks like PHP 5.2(.2) was first included in Fedora Core 7, while Fedora Core 9 is the current release, and includes PHP 5.2.5.

Hi, did you end up installing PHP 5.2 on your Fedora Core 6  -- I use a VPS and am waiting on Network Solutions to upgrade their Fedora.

Anyways not happy with my VPS... still I have no option.

I need to update my php to 1.5.2.  I have done everything i believe possible but I am getting this upon yum upgrade php:
[root ~] Reading repository metadata in from local files
             Could not find update match for php.

What are my options, and how would I go about it.
