Can I install Red Hat 9 on Quad Core Processor


Hi friends,
I am planning to buy new Quad Core PC. I have one question. Can I install Red Hat 9 on Quad Core? My previous machine P4 has successfully installed it. Some one told me that We can not install any version of Linux on Quad Core.
I am waiting for your valuable reply.
Regards,
Ash

No .. it's not true.

n it looks u've attend RHL9 administration course.. keep ur knowledge and put the latest kernel on your machine to prevent any security hole. Well, you can try Fedora 9 or CentOS 5.

RH9 was retired years ago, so I doubt it supports new hardware without a custom kernel. You also won't ge tany security patches etc.

If you like RH, try CentOS 5 as suggested above. It's RHEL5 without the logos, etc.

Thanks for your reply. I am studying Linux. I have not done any certification in Linux. Could you please tell me which Linux OS should I install?

Although I understand what you post (and your posts are correct), I have to read your posts a couple of times before I understand them. This is because you're using some bastard form of english (sms speak I assume). Can you please use normal english?

Thanks WimS

Writing like a semi-literate boob is absolutely uncool and doesn't help anyone.

No, a lot of us do not use this. In a forum with variety of non English speakers, doing this just makes things unnecessarily more difficult.

I've got news for you. This is not chat here and we are not limited on time. Take all the time you need to type full words. Browse these forums, do you see "bastard" language here?

Okey dokey, I think that particular conversation has finished now. On LQ, we prefer our members to write in full, grammatical sentences. This is because we have members from all over the world and writing correct sentences makes it easier to translate for people who do not use English as a first or second language. Although SMS speak is becoming more popular, it does make posts hard to read.

To go back to the translation issue, in this case the word "bastard" is not being used as an insult as such, it's being used to mean "adulterated, baseborn, counterfeit, false, illegitimate, imperfect, impure, inferior, irregular, misbegotten, sham, spurious" (from http://dictionary.reverso.net/english-synonyms/bastard)

And I think this needs to be the first and last time that anyone use that word here.

And it makes you look ignorant and stupid, even on phones. Even on a phone I type out words out fully, might take longer but at least their easily understandable.
