Question RedHat enterprise Linux Help

Hi All,

We are migrating our application from RH 7.3 to RedHat Enterprise Linux. We have a couple or 3rd party sofwares like sybase, Java SDK, Tomcat.

We would like to know , if we can reuse the same 3rd party softwares on the RH enterprise as well.

None of the documents of the 3rd party s/w talk about supporting the RH Enterprise Linux, hence posted the question here.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,

After recently installing RHEL3, I can say that it is almost identical to RHL9. The install process is very similar, the structure and layout of everything is the same, etc.. The RPM packages all have -el in the filename and that's about all the difference I see. Same config files in all the same places, etc... If you can download and build from source a package on RH9 you most likely will be able to on RHEL. I installed RHEL3 WS which does not come with some of the "server" packages that ES and AS do. I downloaded MySQL 4.0.16 source RPM, installed it, built it, installed the resulting binary RPM and it's working fine.
