Unhappy Server Info !!


Hello,

From a Windows 98 SE Client, I tried to open a connection in Telnet to my Red Hat 8 Linux Server. When I did, this is what I saw :
-----
Red Hat Linux Release 8.0 (psyche)
Kernel 2.4.20 - 20.8 on an i686

Login:
-----

From this information, can I say that my Red Hat Linux Server is using a i686 CPU ? and if it does is that enough to install Linux Red Hat Enterprise 3 (ES) with Oracle 9i and iAS (Internet Application Server) ?

Regards,

PT

i'm not sure i understand the ? but, if your asking will the machine handle the software, or the os, please post some system specs, we'll try to help you decide. i would have to say if it's already running redhat 8, that it will more than likely run enterprise.
good luck.

i686 (??)

Hello,

What I mean is that when loggin in the Linux Server, I see i686 displayed.

1) What does that i686 mean ?

2) Is it the Linux Server CPU ?

Regards,

PT

686 means the arch of system. as i know i686 includes intel p2, p3, p4, celeron, amd athlon duron etc type of CPUs.
type in linux concole or terminal:
uname -a
uname --help

i have a celeron 333 cpu and 256 MB ram box with redhat 8.0. qmail with 80 mailbox, apache to serve webmail, antivirus for qmail and named work on it. it is enough fast to do that.

The login message that this user speaks of is is
/etc/issue (local to the console) or
/etc/issue.net (remote network login)

the uname -a will show some stuff about the current operating kernel.

the message that this user speaks of..ie /etc/issue
Is it not the processor the current kernel is compiled to use (not the hardware processor?)

I think using dmesg to view the processor, or simply go into BIOS and check the processor would be easier?

Also you can check /proc (cpu items...) then again..I think dmesg..does that
