http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, There is an old program that I used several years ago on Fedora 9 that has since been orphaned. The last distro of inclusion was F13. The packages are all available in the archived Fedora repositories. I would like to try to install it on F17 and I'm wondering if this would be possible to do? Would I be able to set up the archived repos in my sofware sources and then use the package manager or yum to install them? If not, are thier other concievable alternatives? What conflicts or other problems should I be aware of before attempting this? thx (HowTos)
