Sorry for calling it command. You are right it is a shell script, similar to commands(?).

But I forget to say, I got the RHEL5 and it seems that every time I reboot another file fails to load. So, that’s in regard to stability.

If you haven’t used it how can you say they got the best documentation? I am using it and instead finding the information on their site I come to LinuxQuestions.org for answers!? Not only that, they told me find the answers here.

I find that rather hard to believe, me99, considering Red Hat's reputation. If you're not paying for support, then yeah, they might have told you to come here because they're not obligated to support you unless you're paying for it.

And Red Hat has excellent documentation. Just because you can't find what you're looking for or don't understand it doesn't mean it's not there or that it's not good.

I use CentOS, and unbranded version of redhat, so I use their documentation regularly.

I think I got it! Until now I had some problems with accessing data in mysql database. Well after being advised, on this site, what to do I found that in order to install a module that would allow me to access mysql I need to be registered with RedHat. And so WITHOUT their permission I am not allowed to install anything on my system. No wonder that during reboot I get failed loading config files and demons. Red Hat actually sabotages my system if I fail to register with them!

Thank God for Microsoft! If I would have to register every time I install anything on my Win system I would never get anywhere.

Not only that, I thought that MySQL is free!?

I installed RHEL5 because I used previously RH and ran it without any problems until I started goofing with that and could not get the dependencies working together. I thought RHEL would be a good upgrade but actually I MUST become RedHat for life in order to use it else I pay the consequences!

Haven’t I read on this site that “… the user is the one who should be in control of what’s on his desk!...” Well, I guess RHEL is not for me, I do not like someone hacking my system claiming that they are upgrading it. Is it not how the breaches happen on the first place!?

I guess I need to do everything over and over and over again. Download an image of Linux(?) and see if it can install with the idea that I will install what I want and when I want.

Too bad Ubuntu server failed to install. It has nice high resolution and fast refresh.

RHEL is commercial software. If you want something free that you don't have to buy or register for, get CentOS which is RHEL repackaged with a different name and different logos and is maintained by someone not affiliated with Red Hat. There's no clause that says all Linux distributions must be free.

I am still relatively new to linux. I have used SuSE in the past because it was recomended to me by a friend. I started with 9.3 and changed to OpenSuSE when 10.0 came out. I quickly found out that SuSE wasn't for an older machine when I updated to 10.3.

Recently I switched to Debian and haven't looked back. I'm currently using the Etch release and have no plans on going back to SuSE.
