Remember, I am running the RHEL 2.6.9 kernel, not the vanilla one from kernel.org. There are numerous patches and backports which have made it into the RHEL kernel. I probably wouldn't try running kernel.org 2.6.9 for anything special. That said, I've not run 2.4 in production for three years. CentOS is a good stable (free) server platform, and there are DRBD packages for it. 2.6 is a solid kernel platform, however for production vendor kernels are probably a better option - There is a lot less variation between two RHEL4 kernels versus 2.6.24 and 2.6.25. I don't want to start a distro war by any means. I'm just sharing what works for me :) Stefan Löfgren wrote: > Lovely! That's what I want to hear: "Rock solid"... :D > I've got slackware 12.1.
