What's the diff???

Anyone know the difference(s), if any, between RedHat Enterprise Server 4.0 and RedHat FedoraCore 4? :?:

Re:What's the diff???

Agree, Michael is correct. RHEL is on a longer release cycle and Fedora is on a 6 mo. cycle. CentOS usually is a couple months behind RHEL.

Re:What's the diff???

If you want a free work alike to RHEL you should look at [url=http://www.centos.org] CentOS[/url]. Fedora releases fairly often and its libraries are most likely different from an RHEL release and thus you may run into difficulties using an application compiled for RHEL on a Fedora machine. CentOS is a free recompile of RHEL so things meant for RHEL should work on the equivalent CentOS release.

Re:What's the diff???

Thanks for the reply doc. Let me clarify what I am looking for - I am wondering if a proprietary product that is fully supported on RHES will run on Fedora (server-based). I understand the licensing but need to know of any technical or architectural differences.

TIA

Re: What

http://www.redhat.com/magazine/019may06/features/fedora_rhel_1/ Red Hat Enterprise Linux is Red Hat's enterprise-level, commercially-supported operating system (OS) distribution. Fedora Core is a community-developed Linux distribution--a collection of software packages aggregated into an installable CD/DVD image. Fedora Extras is a community-developed collection of additional software packages that can be added on top of Fedora Core.
