Thanks for the link and welcome-back, hilyard.
It seems that DB2 is also recommending either RHEL 5.6 or 6, SLES 10.3 or 11.1, or Ubuntu 10.04. So I guess I'll just try either RHEL or CentOS.
Anyway, anyone ever compared between RHEL, CentOS and/or Oracle Linux? Are there any noticeable differences beside the fact that RHEL is the commercial version, CentOS is the community (free) version of RHEL, and Oracle Linux is, well, the Oracle version of RHEL?
For my first post on which distro to install Oracle, I found this thread
by LXer on how to install Oracle DB XE on Ubuntu Server. I'm going to try it now on my VM. Thx LXer!
I still want to know if anyone ever tried comparing RHEL, CentOS, and Oracle Linux. As in, is it guaranteed that apps that runs well on RHEL, will also runs well on CentOS? Thanks.
