• Question about RHEL 5.4/ CentOS 5.4

    From Daniel Meszaros@1:0/0 to All on Fri Jun 11 16:48:54 2010
    Hi,

    sorry for this -possibly silly- question: I want to buy hardware that is proven to work fine with RHEL 5.4 . Does this mean that it will work
    100% with CentOS 5.4, too?

    CU,
    M‚szi.

    Daniel,


    99% YES, 100% can only be answered by the coders of CentOS.

    The code is mainly RHEL, recompiled with the Red Hat trademarks.


    Kind regards,


    Jan Gerrit Kootstra

    Normally yes, CentOS is 99.9 % compatible with RHEL.
    Note: there already is CentOS release 5.5, so after you install 5.4,
    just let it update itself immediately to 5.5 (or download/install
    5.5 directly).
