I tried to ask this quick in a nother thread but it got brushed over, and its still bothering me.

What is the difference between 2.6.3.4mdk-enterprise and 2.6.3.4mdk?

Is there any reason I should run one over the other? What are the advantages? I guess I just don't understand.

One is for enterprise specific distros (RH Enterprise, White Box, etc.), while the other is for regular distros. wink.gif

Enterprise linux, as I understand it, is geared towards technical workstations/servers, built with company in mind.

Taken from here,

QUOTE
So basically, the concept of an enterprise linux offering is that you have a fairly long time between releases (12-24 months) and a product that remains supported for an even longer period of time than the release cycle. This allows for stable server deployments with guaranteed bug fixes and security updates for an extend period of time (up to 5 years).


Don't use the enterprise kernel unless you're using enterprise linux, I suppose. biggrin.gif Atleast I see no reason to run the enterprise kernel over a non-enterprise kernel.

Well its just wierd because I installed Mandrake 10 and it installed the Enterprise kernel in with it. I guess I will just go on using the non-enterprise stuff for now unless there is some real reason I should.

I think the Mandrake enterprise kernel has support for up to 64GB RAM, APIC turned on and SMP support built in for up to 8 processors already compiled into the kernel ... where the standard kernel has memory set for < 4gb, and non SMP.

If you want to know exactly what is different, look at the kernel config file for the standard kernel and compare it to the enterprise kernel ... the only difference is that some compile options are different in the kernel.
