Hi all,I made the jump from Windows to Ubuntu a couple months ago just to get my feet wet in Linux. Then, I thought I'd jump into CentOS to practice since that's what we use RHEL at... [by toeknee2120]

I've added the CentOS 6 Updates yum repository to my RHEL 6.4 machine. That's because RHEL doesn't ship with the php-snmp package - and the easiest one to find is on the CentOS site. Anyways, this appears to work okay in my environment - no problems I see.
My questions are if this is an acceptable practice - keeping the original RHEL yum repositories active and adding the CentOS to the mix?
I know I'm slightly OT here, asking about RHEL, but since Centos is now a

I've seen several articles that listed Centos 6.x as vulnerable, but
DID NOT LIST RHEL 6.
I'd think that if Centos 6.x is vulnerable, then so would RHEL 6.x,
since Centos is made from RHEL sources.
Does anyone know for sure either way?

Unlike RHEL, it is a community project but, like RHEL, its target users are the enterprise users. One of the best feature of CentOS is its 100% binary compatibility with RHEL.
Only a week after releasing CentOS 6.1, the CentOS project finished up version 6.2 of its CentOS community version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), while Oracle launched Oracle Linux 6.2 -- a RHEL 6.2 clone that adds the company's Unbreakable Enterprise Linux kernel. Meanwhile, Red Hat released a beta of its long-lifecycle RHEL 5.8 platform and announced strong third quarter earnings....
