Re: RHEL 4 or 5 AS 64Bit OS



I think 5 would have a better chance of having the driver for the perc5i, it just comes down to being newer, and probably less hassle. For example a program like mediawiki required php5, so if you have rhel4 your out of luck. Unless you want to upgrade all over again later, it could save you the wasted time.

Thanks for the reply Justin.

Why would you suggest 4 over 5, because it is new or are there other
reasons?

Hello all,
Is anyone running 64bit RHEL 4 or 5 AS on an intel based Dell Power Edge 2950 with 2x(dual core) Xeon Woodcrest processors with 16GB of RAM, since this is not true 64bit hardware but rather it is
32bit with
64bit extensions. Dell claims that it supports 64bit RHEL
on this hardware.
Can anyone tell me if there are having problems doing this or if there would be anything I should take into consideration
when trying
to decide to run 32bit RHEL or 64bit RHEL. The application I will running on this server supports both 32 or 64 bit.

I have one of those, I know rhel 64 bit will work well with it, but I can't remember if it already had the drivers for the PERC5i or not, you may need to use a driver disk. Unfortunately windoze had to go onto it instead, and Dell doesn't know much about their own stuff.

I think rhel 5, 64 bit would be the best for you, hope it helps..
