Cheap Redhat Linux Box?

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I would like to buy a cheap ATX PC with Redhat Linux.



I don't wanna play games on it, I want it for a test machine. I will do basic apache, SQL, etc. I want a small tower. Nothing too big or tricked out. I don't want "Lindows".



A simple PC that has Redhat bundled would be nice.



Any ideas?

    Dunno about machines or where you are, but I've had a hell of a time getting it (RH8) to work well afterwards. It starts off nicely but descends quickly into a morass of, well.. a morass really.

    Buy a Wal-Mart/Lindows PC and install Red Hat on it.

    How easy is Free BSD or Darwin to install on a generic Intel box compared to RedHat Linux?

    Installing Darwin is not too hard, but getting it to work right is. It has limited hardware support, especially NICs. Also, Apple's release is broken for x86, you need to get a fixed version at opendarwin.org. XWindows barely works in it, and KDE is not included. Also it has trouble mounting drives and it has frequent kernel panics.
