Hya,

I was going to download RedHat 7.0.  But since it's a long download.  I
want to make sure I download what is the best.  I see that there are
three types of ISO's:

  7.0-i386-docs-8bit.iso
  7.0-i386-powertools.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-SRPMS.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-disc1.iso
  7.0-i386-respin-disc2.iso
  7.0-i386-upgrade.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-SRPMS.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-disc1.iso
  7.0-ja-i386-disc2.iso

Which one do you guys recommend?  I want the most updated one.  Would
that be the "ja's" or the "respin's."

Thanks...

Raul Trujillo

The "ja"s are likely to be japanese...   I'd take a chance on the respins.

1. RH6.0 - i386-glibc20-linux-gcc or i386-redhat-linux-gcc

I notice that the RH6.0 has two gcc compilers in

  /usr/bin/i386-glibc20-linux-gcc
  /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc

and the default one is /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc. Anyone
know what is different between them? Because I have found some
programs fail to be compiled using the redhat one but successful
if using /usr/bin/i386-glibc20-linux-gcc.

Thanks
