Does anyone know what this means?

Yeah, I think, it's telling you that some of the packages that are dependencies for the modules that the kernel is trying to load/start aren't available. Why that might be is a different question. Though deadrat server/enterprise edition is now a proprietary version that would normally come with a support contract/deal.

As deadrat are considered by many to be "the microsoft of the linux world" I can't give you any specific answers, but would suggest that you check out the redhat knowledge base and thats gonna be as good as any place to look for answers.

If the install disc(s) were downloaded from somewhere, were the downloaded iso files checked for correct md5sum numbers to ensure the quality/accuracy of the download(s) ? As a common problem is that the iso's are slightly corrupt on download and subsequent burned discs won't install correctly.

Sorry I can't be more specific - I don't use/like redhat.

regards

John

p.s. If you do specifically require a server edition of a linux distro, then why not consider one of the buntu's (Ubuntu, which usually uses gnome for the front end, Kubuntu, which uses KDE front end - and my personal preference or Xbuntu, which uses XFCE front end. All of which, are available as desktop or server editions AFAIK). Plus it'd probably be easier to get community based (forums etc etc) support for.

Ha ha! can't say really.

I'm not qualified in anyway, apart from not wanting to use MS products.

And the only real reason that I don't want to do that, is that I have moral/ethical issues with how "they" do business. "Rose tinted spectacles"? maybe. Altruistic? possibly.

I fail to understand why more businesses don't use a linux based solution. I don't really believe that they need the "cast steel underpants" of a redhat/SuSE novell enterprise solution.

It seems to me, that most SME's could get away with a free, but "hardened", linux solution. With a small team of linux administrators "running the show". Most of the major apps i.e. word processing and email, work in very similar ways.

Of course, that might not completely negate the need to pay for software licencing - for instance, major corporate "control/management" packages. Though I understand that SAP is available as an answer that will run on linux (I understand that they "do" a linux version as well as the ubiquitous windows version).

Hence what I suspect, would be considerable savings, say over a 5 year period, would be worth the effort.

Which would have the "knock on" for making more people train up as whatever distro administrators. Plus the added bonus of making more of the major "enterprise" application developers produce linux versions of their products.

So, if nothing else, I'd "never say never"!

regards

John
