I have a physical server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga). I would like to create a virtual machine (using VirtualBox) with a binary-compatible version of CentOS server as this RHEL server version, and have a few questions.
Given the following command outputs on the physical server (the RHEL server):
uname -a ======== Linux myrhelserv.org 2.6.18-229.el5 #1 SMP Tue Oct 26 18:54:44 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux lsb_release -a ============== LSB Version: :core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:graphics-3.1-amd64:graphics-3.1-ia32:graphics-3.1-noarch Distributor ID: RedHatEnterpriseServer Description: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 (Tikanga) Release: 5.5 Codename: Tikanga cat /proc/version ================= Linux version 2.6.18-229.el5 (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)) #1 SMP Tue Oct 26 18:54:44 EDT 2010
Which CentOS ISO should I use from this page inside the CentOS vault for 5.5? Why?
Or should I use a different ISO entirely? If so, why? Thanks in advance!
