    Post some information on your computer hardware including graphics.
    Linux server?? You need to post the actual distribution as there are over 500 Linux distributions. Open a terminal and run either or both of these commands:

    cat /etc/issue
    cat /etc/release

    Thanks for the reply.

    When I run cat /etc/issue
    It is showing like this " Red Hat Enterprise Server release 5.5 (Tikanga)
    kernel \m on an \r
    "

    When I run cat /etc/release
    It is showing " file or directory not found "

    My Hardware Configuration:
    Intel Core i3, 500GB HDD, INtel HD Graphics, 3GB DDR3 RAM
    Let me know if you need any other information.

    Red Hat Enterprises requires a annual subscription. I believe there is a free trial version but it is for a short period; 30-90 days?
    If you do not pay the fee you will not be able to get any updates after this time period. You could download and install CentOS which is basically Red Hat free version.
