Summary:

In summary, no problem has ever been reported that is specific to a linux distribution, as long as it conforms to the above versioning specifications for 4 and 5 ( Kernel 2.6.9 and 2.6.18, respectively). Red Hat Enterpirse Linux 6 will be supported with 9.3.2.1.   In rare cases, if a customer does find a problem with Reporter on a specific version, the diagnosis maybe delayed as we compile the version they are on, so Bluecoat engineering can get to the root cause of the issue/symptoms a customer is seeing.
