Witch disto is da best RedHatEvs SuSe for 64 bit PC


Main problem:
I have a PC with 2x Intel Xeon processors (64 bit of course) and 8 Gb Ram, main task for this pc is to run Wolfram Mathematica 5.1.1. System requirements for mathematica demand Red Hat enterprise 2.1 or 3 or Suse. I'm tried to find a distro for RH and found page h t t p://w w w.redhat.com/ I hoped that there i can got RHEnt free, but NO these b**ches want my money!

Is RH ent 3 avaible For free or not?
Where is it possible?

Platforms for mathematica 5.1

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9
SuSE Professional 9.2
SuSE Professional 9.1
SuSE Professional 9

Witch ones are free? Where I can get those?


Thanxs!

SuSE 9.3 Pro is free if you go to their FTP mirror servers and download the CD or DVD images. You can also get 9.2 Pro from the same FTP servers as well. Just make sure to pick a server that is noted as "complete."

or take a look at CentOS it is a RHEL 4.0 fork that is kept rather up to date (less then a day or so behind the release of the srmp files to clean up any and all trademake icons and names) that should work well for you if you want RHE for free.

Thumbs up

Thanks for an advice!

i found Centos and download it, so far all seems to be ok

but in last night i seen bad dream - Wolfram (manufacturer of mathematica ) cooperates with
RH manufacturers and - no rhel 3 no mathematica...

I mean what if mathematica setup strongly checks linux version..
