Is it affect the network settings when I put Redhat in D partition.

In the FBS (frequency-based schedler) in Linux redhat version, where is the fbswait() function defined at? I am doing some porting from a different Unix machine to this one and need more details on this function from the FBS group. Thanks!
I really meant I want to know where the definition is cause in fbsched.h it’s an ‘extern’ type. I can’t find the def anywhere. Thanks!

We have just purchased a dedicated server from fasthosts, running Linux Redhat Enterprise 5, however our script needs PHP 5.2.0 and the version installed is 5.1.6 – Can anyone tell us how to upgrade this, i have found various things online but none seem to work. A step by step would be great. Fasthosts customer support aparently say "its out of their range of support, as per usual. very unhelpful after spending over £1,000!"


I partitioned a small portion of my laptops hard drive to install redhat Linux, and when I start up my computer it is defaulting to Linux. How do I change this to windows 7?

The situation is that I have been install various version in relation to the Fedora, but none of them actually worked because they constantly crashed during the booting processing. Therefore, I this is why I am using a older version known as Redhat Linux 9 which was released in 2003. Once, I finished installing it I notice that I had a slight problem which trying to set up a internet connect because it is somewhat indicating that either it does recognize the hardware or it is not set up correctly. I am constantly wondering on how to find the appropriate Ethernet driver to connect to the internet; however, at the same time how is possible to connect to internet using a USB cable modem through my USB ports? More significantly, how do you make the appropriate configuration? In addition, here are the specification of the my computer:

AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 2600+
-1.60 GHz, 1.2 GB of DDR1 RAM
-Maxtor 3 2049H2 SCSI Disk Device (20 Gigabytes)
-Western Digital WDC WD16 00JB-00REA0 SCSI Disk Device (160 GB)
-MSI K8MM-V (Motherboard)
-LAN – VIA VT6103L 10/100 Mb/s PHY…

In addition, I use a Motorola SURFboard SB5100 USB Cable Modem for an internet

i got a cd and i need help i dont no how should i install linux redhat

I have x386 machines and I wanted to know where to get either a CD (or create one) that is a live CD that will allow me to boot up from it and then let me partition my hard drive (I need to keep my Windows) install preferably redhat linux with fedora desktop. I think that’s KDE. I then can get dual boot. Canonical will give you the CD for free for its Ubuntu. I wanted to know if there is some site where I can get the redhat stuff in a similar fashion. Thanks.

I hate stupid normal linux softwares, if there any best softwares rathar than windows utilities, plz inform me.

Fedora or RedHat Linux for a Desktop?

I’m considering jumping into the Linux scene again. I want something fast and flexible, but also easy to use. The two that someone reccomended are Fedora and RedHat Enterprise Linux Desktop.

I want something that’ll run games under WINE very well, and I want package management to be fast and easy.

Apparently Fedora and RedHat are very alike, but which one is faster and better for a desktop environment. I will be doing casual browsing and listening to music, alongside playing games under WINE.

Which one will be the fastest and most productive?

Thank you.
Scratch that, how about SlackWare?

Hi. I have a DELL PowerEdge 2950 server running Windows Server OS. I need to install RedHat LINUX 64bit on it. I already have the RedHat CD-ROMS, but there is nothing on them about being 32bit or 64bit. So, how do I make sure the LINUX installation is actually 64bit (to take advantage of 4GB of RAM). Is there an option to choose during RedHat install?
DELL site says their processors are 64bit capable. Thanks.

I am sorry i am new to the game… i just setup my linux box. now i want it to be a DNS SERVER. I’ve been trying to setup everything on my own. but i am now stuck to installing and configuring bind-9.5.0-P2 on my redhat linux. I’ve been trying to search for an answer but there are a lot of conflicts especially with the distro and versions of bind. My box is Linux version 2.4.20-8 ( (gcc version 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)) #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003

under uname is

Linux stmserver 2.4.20-8 #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I believe the right version of BIND for my box is bind-9.5.0-P2
I just dont know how to install and configure it.

Same as all other tutorial i found.. it says download it and extract and
./configure and make

i did the all the line above. now im stuck on what to do next.

I’m a student learning C and have limited knowledge of C. I will be away from internet access for extended periods and needs a way to work on program projects for school that currently interacts with Redhat Linux on the school’s Linux server. I was thinking of trying Ubuntu, but would like to get an idea of differences between the various ‘system programs’ that my programs are intended to intearct with. I think the learning experience is good to try different versions of Linux too. I would like to try ftp projects on both versions of Linux also (more for learning purposes). How differently will ftp and ‘system programs’ (like diff) behave on these two environments. How likely are simple student projects (especially ftp) to run in both environment? And, what are the key differences that I should watch out for. (I’m new to FTP.)

I have a new laptop which came with pre-installed windows 7. I want two linux systems redhat and ubuntu on them for educational purposes. I am new to linux systems and don’t even know a single command of it. I am only comfortable with the windows systems. But for the college syllabus, I need the two linux systems. Now can anyone please explain me how do I install both the linux systems on the laptop, so that I can use windows 7, ubuntu and redhat simultaneously on that laptop. I recently tried to install ubuntu on my desktop. I even succeeded in installing it. But after that there was no trace of windows 7. I had then to format and reinstall my windows 7. Please tell me a way so that I do not have to lose my windows 7 and install the remaining to systems.
