The old entry in the FAQ, quoted below, is now confusing through no
fault of the FAQ author.
> 3.5 - Password authentication doesn't work (eg on Slackware 7.0 or Red Hat 6.x)
The problem is that Red Hat has now published Red Hat Enterprise Linux
6.0 and 6.1, normally written RHEL 6.0. Some software purchasers and
new admins are not aware that Red Hat 6.0 was actually the name of a
much older release, in 1999.
Is it perhaps time to drop that FAQ entry, or point it more
specifically to the old release? Perhaps adding a line like this?
3.5 - Password authentication doesn't work (eg on Slackware 7.0 or
Red Hat 6.x).
[ Note: this applied to Red Hat 6.x, not the much newer Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.x. ]
I've actually had recruiters confuse my knowledge of older Red Hat
releases with RHEL releases: I've done both, so it wasn't a problem
for me, but others can be confused by this.
