The other day I burnt a copy of a CentOS 6.4 64 bit netinstall disc,
verified the disc which passed & about a third of the way through the
install it informed me that there was no CD in the drive & refused to
So I burnt another & the same thing happened.
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
part of RH, I'm hoping I won't be summarily ejected.
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?

I was going to install Linux as a dual boot on my old Compaq presario laptop which has Windows XP. When I purchased this laptop in '06, it had a sticker on the front saying 512 MB RAM. When I go under computer properties, device manager, it only says 384MB RAM! I'm wondering how much RAM I really have on this computer?
CentOS developer Karanbir Singh has announced the availability of CentOS 6.0 for download.CentOS (Community Enterprise Operating System) is a Linux-based operating system that is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. 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.
I downloaded the netinstall iso, burned it to disk, and tried to install on my old Dell PowerEdge 2900 (Intel Xeon / 8Gb ram). Machine is connected to a KVM. The Centos 6 netinstall iso worked flawlessly on this exact configuration two days ago.
The first thing anaconda does after verifying the media is complain that "pane is dead" in the lower left corner.
Centos only follow what Redhat do so Xen will continue to be supported on Centos 5 for as long as RH support it in RHEL. In Centos 6, if RHEL6 has no xen then Centos 6 will have no xen either. Redh... [by TrevorH]
