    New to Redhat

    Hi all
    I have been a programmer for 10 years and a network admin for seven (so I have a little technical experience) and just decided to try Redhat. I was wandering, which is the best site for rpms. I am an MCSE (I know, I know) and am completely disgusted with MS and determined to make this work. Any advice would be appreciated.

    No, they are not the same site.

    I'd say don't use RPMs at all, whenever it can be avoided. I find that it's usually much more convenient to download the source for a program and install it. Not always, admittedly, especially not if you just want something installed real quick to get on with what you were doing, but generally. Also, you get the software more specifically configured to fit the system.

    I think i will try the source option so i can (in some cases) evaluate the code.
