Question Redhat and Mandrake


Can I install Redhat 7.0 onto Mandrake 7 or vice versa?
They both seem to have utilities in GUI that I would love to have access to on one desktop.


Thanks in advance....

Well, you can't "install" one on top of the other, but since Drake is a Rehdhat derivative, and they both use RPM, I'd imagine that (some) of Redhat's packages would work with Drake. You might get caught in version traps with libraries and the like, but overall it seems do-able.

You can always dual boot as well. But most likely you should be able to criss cross some of their apps onto the other, whichever one you want to use.

I have run into a few intances where all I could find was a mandrake version of an rpm, so what I did was grab the .src.rpm and recompile it.
