    RHEL5/Fedora application compatability

    Very new to Linux and linux application development. Will I have issues with applications developed on RHEL5 running on Fedora, and vice versa?

    Welcome to the forums, Dragonslave!

    I don't run either distro so can't say for sure, but I have a feeling that some apps will work where others might not. Maybe some of the RH/Fedora users will chime in with their personal experiences on the matter.

    In the interim, have fun on the forums...

    This depends on what versions of Fedora and RHEL you are running. RHEL 5 apps may work on Fedora 6 and vice versa. This is because RHEL 5 was mostly built using the Fedora Core 6 code base.

    for the most part, code developed on ANY linux machine should run on any linux machine. code COMPILED on different machines, not so much.
    New to the internet, technical forums, or the hacker / open source community??
