Is there a specific rmp for Linux AS

Thanks for the quick replies.

Per your advise, I found the RPMs supplied by RedHat for 8.0 as follows:

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/8.0/e...14-19.i386.rpm

RedHat 9.0 version:

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/en/...14-21.i386.rpm

I was told that we have Advanced Server version of RedHat. How will check this on our system? Can I still use one of the above RPMs?

Thanks again.

The /proc way is in the console type cat /proc/version. You can find any useful information in /proc too.

Thanks.
I got the following response from cat /proc/version:

Linux version 2.4.9-e.10custom (root@dsg-rac1.seagate.com) (gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.2 2.96-108.1)) #2 SMP Wed Mar 12 11:42:21 GMT-6 2003

Can somebody give their interpretation about the above message please.

Thanks.

You are running Red Hat Linux 7.2
Your Kernel is 2.4.9

The numbers are your kernel version. Custom indicates that it's been customised - RH customise their kernels.
