Red Hat Enterprise Linux


"Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the leading platform for open source computing. It is sold by subscription, delivers continuous value and is certified by top enterprise hardware and software vendors. From the desktop to the datacenter, Enterprise Linux couples the innovation of open source technology and the stability of a true enterprise-class platform."

Please note that Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Core are distantly related and are not the same product. Please see the Fedora distribution page for more details.

Another option for those wanting the stability of RHEL, there are various RHEL clones, some of them listed below:

- CentOS is a community effort which tracks each RHEL release and update and offers up2date and yum service. All this for free, donations encouraged.

- The StartCom Linux operating systems, are based on the RedHat Enterprise and Fedora source code each modified with reliability, security and efficiency in mind, to fit the tasks assigned to each flavor of StartCom Linux.

Tips and Tricks

If you have SELinux enabled and set to enforcing you may need to change the context of the file for it to load properly:

    chcon -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/dri/

Substitute lib with lib64 where appropriate.

Tip for Centos 5.4 x86_64 kernel 2.6.18+ Before installing the driver package it is absolutely vital to ensure that version/build number in /lib/modules/{your kernel build}/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h number is EXACTLY the same as the output of uname -r

for example

    cat /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.el5/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h 
    #define UTS_RELEASE "2.6.18-164.1.15.el5"

fglrx.ko will NOT be built and installed properly due to the discrepancy (1.15) in utsrelease.h.

In most cases modifying utsrelease.h solves the problem
