How much do you want to pay, and which features in an RDBMS
are important to you?

There's for example Oracle and Ingres on the commercial side,
there's PostgreSQL, MySQL, FireBird to name just a few that
are freely available ...

Which is the best? As I said: what do you want out of it?


Cheers,
Tink

well i wanted better RDBMS in terms of security.
I want to maintain the database such that it shoul not get tampered by anyone other than only root.
May be this is silly question b'coz i havent used any RDBMS not a single time on linux.
Thankx.

Well ... usually a DBMS won't be run by the root user
but via a service account, e.g postgres for PostgreSQL, oracle
for Oracle, and so forth... from then on it all depends on
whom you grant access to those privileged users accounts,
and how you administer each DBMS internally in terms of
permissions (e.g grants on internal tablespaces).



Cheers,
Tink

Well that means if i( root ) create a table then RDBMS will allow only root to make changes in the database ( since root has created it & Root dont want to give any type of permissions to other users , thats the basic need in term of security )

And also i wanted to access that table as soon as root file system gets mounted ( i want to extract the attributes of table into one kernel data structure ). Can i do it? if yes What needs to be done ?

I think you should start reading about databases now! It's starting
to look as if you didn't have much exposure to databases at all.

I can't tell you anything about userspace <-> kernel transitions,
I suggest that you request for your post to be moved to programming.
(Do so by reporting the thread).


Cheers,
Tink
