http, red hat 9.0 stinks


to make a long story short last week my broad band went down so i decided to tough it out for a few days with dial up. well i couldnt get my dial up to work and decided it might have been a problem with the unstable test packages i had installed on my red hat 8.0 system. so i figured it was a good time to give redhat 9.0 a try no big deal right. wrong crashes crashes crashes. big mistake not impressed. so now i am back to redhat 8.0 and it feels much better. by the way what is up with not needing scsi emulation with my cd drives in red hat 9.0 dont understand this one. my first missburn ever using linux in red hat 9.0

ok to the point sorry. a few months ago i installed httpd and the redhat front end for it. i managed to get things up and going now im trying to do it again. it was something simple i had to do with the hosts in the network configuration. i had to add another host or i had to change the alias to my domain name or something. i tried this by adding an additional "127.0.0.1 schrock321" which by the way gets apache running with no errors but when im booting up my sendmail takes 5 min. to activate. i just cant remeber how to get around this problem. i am assigned a dynamic address through my provider. what is the proper way of doing this i would like to get it strait in my head once and for all.

sorry for the not so short story

thanks,
AD

I think Red Hats last good release was 7.3 I have had nothing but troubble with 8.0 and 9 both as a home user and for a server. 7.3 in my opinion runs more stable then the last 2 releases, I find myself always going back and reinstalling 7.3 and I become happy as a clam servers run better and much less problems on my home desktop machine.

i'm a noob and use redhat 7.2 but thats only because my uncle who is sys admin for agriculture in canada says so far it is the best but i've tried other versions and i think it would all be a matter of personal opinion

actually i think your right LoungeLizard. when red hat 8.0 was first released it was unstable with using kde. but after a few updates here and there over time the problems went away. if i could ever figure out how to get slackware to detect my promise ide controller card during install i would give it a try. tried mandrake out but i just didn't like it at all. but thats what i love about the linux world its huge and you have all kinds of options and combination of things. you sure don't get that in the microsoft world.

Oh one more thing if you are using RH9 for just a home desktop, I might suggest Suse or Slackware, Suse has a very nice setup and great for just home use

just incase someone is looking for the answer to my original question in this post here is what i found to work. i deleted IP 127.0.0.1, NAME localhost.localdomain, ALIASES localhost in network configuration under HOSTS
and replaced it with IP 127.0.0.1, NAME what ever your domain name is (www.?????.com), ALIASES domain name without www or .com (?????)

by the way i tried some of these other sugestions given here at this site with not so good results if any at all here are the links to the post you might want to give them a try for your self

Redhat 9.0 started to run smoothly in my comp when I upgraded the kernel...before that it was awful.

Redhat 8.0 seems to run more smoothly in my comp too...without updates. But I have not even installed KDE. I think one GUI is enough...two leads only to errors.
