Software :: Uninstall RHEL 3 And Install RHEL 9 Without Affecting XP?
Jul 13, 2009
I have RHEL 3 and Win XP Installed in my P.C?I want to uninstall RHEL 3 and install RHEL 9 without affecting XP.how can i do this and also where can i download free RHEL 9 version or any other latest linux distribution for free?
is possible to edited the default RHEL CD to have it automatically install RHEL based off of a kickstart file that I will store locally on the CD. My plan would be to put a cd in a server and have the OS automatically being installed.
I have 4 partitions in my system, out of which two(sda1, sda2) have windows on them. I have installed RHEL 4 32 - bit on sda3 and after that , installed installed RHEL 64-bit on to a partition sda 5. Now i am unable to boot into RHEL 32-bit. The error i am getting is Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.
A client has sent me an RHEL 5.1 box for me to do some work on, but it's not registered with Red Hat. This is causing me problems, because it's a minimal installation, and I need some more dev software.My immediate reaction was to install various bits (emacs, and so on) from my Centos 5(.0) DVD.The base RHEL system only had one (disabled) repo entry,so I added a yum DVD repo entry in yum.conf.d.
This looked good to start with, but it doesn't work. Something in RHEL's pirut/yum/rpm/whatever is getting confused, and can't work out what is/isn't installed.
Question - how do you maintain an unregistered RHEL box? Has RH done something to make life difficult? Is my problem simply that I'm using a Centos 5.0 DVD, instead of Centos 5.1? Am I stuck with downloading lots of rpms from the net and doing everything manually? I really don't want to do that.
I am trying to download RHEL 5.4 AS version for testing..But under [URL] There is no specific link for AS version or ES version..How can I detect which iso is for AS and which one for ES..? There are separate links for AS and ES version for RHEL 4.x version but why is it not available for RHEL 5.x versions?
I have a database server running RHEL 5.1 32 bit that suffered some catastrophic failures about 6 months ago. We were able to patch it back together and keep it running, but now the manufacturing site it supports is going to shut down for two weeks and I would like to replace it permenantly. Does anyone have any guidance for that sort of thing? I'd like to have the new server up and running before hand, basically changing the hostname/ip and restoring the databases only on conversion day. I've done this in the past with HP UX - Red Hat conversions, but this is my first red hat to red hat move. Any advice or shortcuts?I forgot to add the other wrinkle. The new server will be running 64bit linux.
Environment:RHEL 5.2 and 5.4 AP x86_64, 2 drives (sda, sdb), installing without optional features like clustering and virtualization. I have tried this for a couple of days now and just can't get it to work. My goal is to take the RHEL 5.2 DVD and RHEL 5.4 DVD and install them on separate drives of the same machine. I want the grub menu to give me a choice. I prefer to understand the steps and choices offered me by the install dialog to do this rather than fiddle with grub.conf. If that is not possible, I will write up the bug.
So far, I just get the the error 13 when trying to start the grub added second OS. I have read elsewhere that "Anaconda frequently recognizes the other operating system and sets up grub so you can boot from either operating system". That would be nice. The install dialog lets me choose a drive to install to. I have figured out that I need to check "review and modify partitioning layout" to enter the advanced grub choices. Do I have it install a boot loader for the 1st OS? Trying to add the 1st OS during the second OS install creates a grub conf with no kernel line in the added boot stanza.
i have done a "wubi" installation of ubuntu 10.10 in my F: drive of HD.But the installation got some errors and now i wan to uninstall the ubuntu without losing my other data in F: drive.i have tried uninstalling it from "add or remove programs" in control panel of woindows XP but there is no program as ubuntu in it.
I have two systems connected by local network 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 both installed RHEL
I have congigured nfs and httpd and /mnt/package contains the rhel dvd contents extracted. Also the iso image of rhel from the other system (192.168.0.2), I can mount the share from 192.168.0.1. i.e NFS network is ok in 192.168.0.1
But when I tries to install rhel from 192.168.0.2 It shows the message that that directory cannot be mounted. selinux is permissive in 192.168.0.1. The problem when it asks for network ipno.Is it required to run dhcp server on 192.168.0.1? I have tried another way also - by http created a link to /mnt/package in /var/www/html
But when I tries to install through http://192.168.0.1/package ( from http://192.168.0.1 also - experimented all combinations) - it automatically switches to CD install.

I have installed RHEL 5 in on a Virtual PC. I am stuck around while installing the yum server. Initially, I tried installing it by mounting the DVD but it didn't work for me after which I did a lot of google search I tried all the various procedures of the installation of yum server/RPM packages. But however I am finding it impossible to go ahead and I am geting an ***error 404: not found*** way of installation. Also since I am not well acquainted with linux, can I request for a detailed explanation of each & every steps involved.
I have installed Red HAt Enterprise Linux 5.1 on my system.. Now, I want to install the sound card driver.. NIC drivers and others which are in ".exe" format, which, ofcourse Linux does not support.. There is no way I could find to convert them to tar.gz or .rpm format.. Kindly suggest on how to proceed.. Thanks.. Could also e-mail to email@example.com
I just got a question from a customer(actually from a customer to my manager then to me) and he is asking the following question: What are the components that were installed with RHEL? It may sound like a silly question but to me it sounds vague. The main thing I am thinking about now is during install you can select three components: webserver software development and virtualisation.
I am facing some iLO problems in HP servers so can't take its remote session properly for long time, always Setup starts smoothly but after some time it gets hung in between . Plz let me know if we can do remote install.
