Can I install rpm across minor releases within a major release of RHEL, such as RHEL 8.4 packages on RHEL 8.2 ? (e.g. of my scenario is provided at the end)
I see some info regarding compatibility when updating rpm's here: https://access.redhat.com/articles/54483
It says "Selective updates can be installed after an initial installation of a major or minor release using the tools provided, such as dnf, yum or up2date"
But if I install 8.4 rpm on 8.2 directly, will that be compatible ?
yum list curl --showduplicates on
RHEL 8.2, I see:
curl.x86_64 7.61.1-14.el8 repo curl.x86_64 7.61.1-14.el8_3.1 repo curl.x86_64 7.61.1-18.el8_4.1 repo
yum install curl will install latest available one -
So, is something like this compatible (for any app/command), or I do need to install
el8_2 rpm (which is currently not available in the repo) ?
