Change is a good thing. I have moved some stuff around so that I would be able to share a tid-bit here and there. Mostly my experience with RHEL.
I started out learning *nix with FreeBSD, then moved over to CentOS for access to more up-to-date packages. I stayed with CentOS from the release of CentOS 4 to CentOS 6.1. After a grueling wait for CentOS to release 6 I started looking for a new distro. The straw that broke the camel’s back was a machine I depended on died when attempting to upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2 because of poor quality control. So I switched to Scientific Linux.
I guarantee that I don’t know it all, and I can say with a large degree of accuracy that I’m not doing all this correctly or to spec. What I do know is what I have run into and what I have learned along the way. (And hey, if a comment leads me to learn more I’ll say this was a success!)
So welcome to my little spot of fun, my only hope is that I might actually put something here that helps some one out.
Note: Yes, I realize I choose the worst portal there is. Its quick and dirty and I don’t have time for much more at the moment.
