End of Life Notice

RedHat 9 for Collage Server

Effective January 1, 2015, Ohio GT has ended support for RedHat 9 for use with Collage Server.

All development by RedHat for this OS ended in 2007. While we continued to support RedHat for many years, this support has now ended. Beginning with Collage version 4.2 new versions of Collage software cannot be installed on a Collage Server running RedHat 9.

An existing Collage Server computer with RedHat 9 OS can continue to be used with the version of software that is already on it, but the Collage Server and Collage client software cannot be upgraded.


A Collage Server is a Linux computer running a customized OS and Collage Server software. One or more Collage Clients are attached. The Collage Server software does file processing, stores Collage files, and serves Collage jobs to the engravers. The Collage Client PCs are not affected by this notice.

A PC with Microsoft Windows OS that is used to store Collage jobs created on a Collage-S computer is not a Collage Server and this notice does not apply.

Upgrade Options

OHIO has issued a product End of Life notice for Collage Client-Server with Linux OS on the server.
