Yes the Oracle Enterprise Linux
is also binary compatible with Redhat, but they also charge for support.
As you guys can see this was my first question on LQ, and I admire the indepth, prompt and encouraging help. This alone has made me a convert to CentOS. Funnily enough, previously, I just thought inferring from name "CentOS" that the word Cent implies something very small, but then pardon me as I am newbie.
Yum is also a very new thing for me, and I will be researching about it now. Any help would be greatly appreciated, please.
