Yeah, well, that's what comes in centos6, and the powers that be insist we stick to that.  You've heard the story.  Heck, we just recently got off of 1.1.7.  I know, I know, it just makes everyone's life more difficult.  Appreciate you input, though.

On the plus side, 1.1.7 worked wonderfully for us for years, and I'm hoping for the same with 2.2.6.
