What are RedHat Linux Alpha, Sparc and 386.


Hell All,

I was trying to install rpm packages, I saw on www.findrpm.net.

2nd Question:

Can somebody please tell me how to install Apache Server on Red Hat Ent 6 ?

I tried to install in Red Hat 6 but it gave me error to install some dependencies, I tried to find on this "www.findrpm.net" website but could not find those. Please help me out.

Please see below I have got error:

[syedadmin@localhost Downloads]$ rpm -ivh apache-1.3.22-6.s390.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
/usr/share/magic.mime is needed by apache-1.3.22-6.s390
ld.so.1 is needed by apache-1.3.22-6.s390
libdb-3.2.so is needed by apache-1.3.22-6.s390
libexpat.so.0 is needed by apache-1.3.22-6.s390
libmm.so.11 is needed by apache-1.3.22-6.s390
[syedadmin@localhost Downloads]$

Will be much appreciated for your help.

Thanks

Syed

Hi syedhaq12

Linux is an Operating System while AlphaServers is an architecture of a Servers different from x86 servers manufactured from HP, while Sparc is also a different Server architecture manufactured by SUN, so it is Red Hat OS for different architectures.

If you try to install the serveer with rpm commands than make sure you install all the dependencies.

I would sugest you use yum command, if u dont have subscription with RHN you should use rpm command or create local repository which I think it is illegal, but if u intend on using RedHAT you should buy license alternatively you can use CentOS distro of Linux.

1. alpha, sparc, i386 are different chip types. Most off the shelf PCs will be Intel (or AMD) i386 or x86_64.
i386 = 32 bit
x86_64 = 64 bit

2. If you've got RHEL (Redhat Enterprise Linux), you must pay for a subscription to get updates and support.
Try this cmds to see what it says
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
If you don't want to pay, get Centos instead; a free rebuild of RHEL that includes updates but not support.

In either case, do NOT try to install random rpms off the net; use the yum cmd
Code:
yum install httpd
This will grab you the correct version from the official repositories and automatically install the dependencies as well.
