I have gotten the Red Hat 9.0 cd's from a friend of mine, I however need to establish which version I have as an application I have will no longer be supported on the "desktop version of Red Hat 9", the other choices I have come across so far are:


Red Hat Linux Professional 9.0
Red Hat Linux Professional Workstation Edition
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS Standard
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 2.1 Standard
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 3.0 Standard
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Standard
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS Premium

Can anyone tell me where I go to look in my current installation to acertain if I am running the "desktop version of Red Hat 9"

thanks,

You probably don't have any of those .... if what you got was the RedHat 9.0 downloaded version.

do the command:

cat /etc/redhat-release

RedHat is removing support for RedHat 9.0 and the Programs you listed are the RedHat paid versions.

WhiteBox Enteprise linux is a free rebuild of the RHEL 3 source files ... you can maybe use it and use the RHEL 3 version of the program.

You could try downloading Whitebox Enterprise Linux iso's (liberation-i386-binary-1-fixed.iso, liberation-i386-binary-2-fixed.iso, liberation-i386-binary-3-fixed.iso) from here or here... or the other mirrors listed here... after you download, go to the directory where the ISO files are and do this command: md5sum *.iso and compare the results to this list:

liberation-i386-binary-fixed-1.iso c2c3d56b46092373a77c01efb5bb4d5b
liberation-i386-binary-2-fixed.iso ade43f624747b8639bb56a6869423b56
liberation-i386-binary-3-fixed.iso 184af501ce2a2e507371558b77d075a6

md5sum is on most default linux installs .... you can download it for windows here

If the MD5sums matchup your files are Good...

Burn the ISO's to CD with your favorite ISO burner and install...


See WhiteBoxLinux.net and WhiteBoxLinux.org for details on WhiteBoxLinux.
