Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4/5 2.6/2.6.18 on AIX

We are looking at migrating to the AIX Power6 p550. We would be running our applications which have been developed on RHEL within an LPAR/WPAR on AIX platform.

I am wondering if anyone out there has any experience or history they would like to share about there dealings with this. From appearance everything looks pretty transparent.

As long as these rules are considered it looks transparent

PowerVM™ Lx86 runs most x86 Linux® applications, but PowerVM Lx86 cannot run applications that:

*Directly access hardware devices (e.g. 3D graphics adapters);
*Require nonstandard kernel module access or use kernel modules not provided by the Linux on POWER™ operating system distribution;
*Do not use only the Intel® IA-32 instruction set architecture as defined by the 1997 Intel Architecture Software Developer's Manual consisting of Basic Architecture (Order Number 243190), Instruction Set Reference Manual (Order Number 243191) and the System Programming Guide (Order Number 243192) dated 1997;
*Do not run correctly on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 starting with version 4.3 or Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 9 starting with version SP3 or Novell SLES 10;
*Are x86 Linux specific system administration or configuration tools.



aix, linux
