    RHEL 5 32 bit hardware compatibility


    Does RHEL5 32 bit O.S supports : ( dual-quad server )

    RAM limit : MAX of 16 GB

    Hard disk limit : 8 TB to 16 TB

    Dual Quad Core processor

    *********

    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (former ES) (limited to 2 CPU-s)

    Means up to 2 sockets ( 2 physical CPU's ). Right ?

    You generally will only see 3 GB of RAM at most with 32-bit Linux. You can get over that limit with a PAE enabled kernel, or if you use 64-bit Linux.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Which begs the question of why do you (vamsi_k) want to run 32-bits on this hardware? You can easily run 32-bit software on a 64-bit RHEL/CentOS system, and don't burden yourself with the limitations of a 32-bit OS, even if you use the PAE-enabled kernel.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
