CentOS patch level?

Hi all,

The system requirements section for latest Zimbra versions states “CentOS Linux 6 (64-bit), patch level 4 or later is required”.

But what does “patch level 4” means exactly? CentOS releases have major/minor “versions” (not “patches”), the word “patch” is rather used for single packages or security CVEs. Maybe “patch level 4” = ver. 6.4?

So I’m confused, how can I be sure that a particular installation will support Zimbra 8.7+? Do I have to dig in with rpm –qa?
Thanks!

Yes, you're looking for minor release. So centos 6 patch level 4 is referring to centos 6.4.
