Hi all;

Please I want to ask about the difference between the redhat version of Linux and SUSE Linux.

If I take a course in any of them is there a great difference between versions or no?

Please I need detailed information as much as possible.

Thanks alot

Re: Linux Help

Hum I have worked withboth of them. In my opinion, I like more the redhat based distributions(fedora core), than suse linux. I think that the difference is that Redhat based distros have a better configuration tools, and is good for use if you're software developer or network administrator. SUSE is more like, for a normal PC user that will not stick around so mucho with code, and stuff like that.

Re: Linux Help

Ok, first of all the redhat distribution now is called Fedora Core, and is a open project supported by RedHat, it has a lot of support and many persons working on it's development, but SUSE is not that open, in fact it is tending to be propietary software now that they allied with Microsoft.

In case of the amount of CD's it depends, for example for Fedora Core or SUSE are usually needed 5 CD's to install them or you can get a single DVD that contains all those CD. This requires many Cd's because this distributions are very complete and brings a lot of applications and packages that you can install.

Re: Linux Help

I think that all Linux have many things in common, if you learn for example Fedora core, then it will not be hard to figure out how to use SUSE.

If you want to take courses to learn faster that's fine, but don't forget that you also need experience and the will to read things by yourself, out of course.

Linux Help

Just a little more info:
The main difference between most rpm based distributions is the administration and configuration software, SUSE has yast (console) and yast2 (GUI), and a bit different set of default packages from fedora (redhat).
In principle it is true that knowing one distro makes learning another easyer true, but fedora has a totaly different administration software suit from SUSE, so knowing SUSE doesnt mean you know fedora and viceverca, but in my opinion SUSE is much easyer to learn.
