What? I don't see anything wrong with that sentence.
"Betterer", however, is well taking poetic license.

Hmmm, okay, I suppose you could drop "CentOS-5.3 or" entirely.

Hi "secs"
Nice shots ... from the live cd !
Can't see CentOS 5.4 in any of these screenshots though
Ha yes in a firefox webpage... which could be from any version, 5 and up. Nice try to see some gnome screens ... but not very useful
Next time, maybe you can add a terminal with:
[root@ce54 ~]# lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-ia32:core-3.1-noarch:graphics-3.1-amd64 :graphics-3.1-ia32:graphics-3.1-noarch
Distributor ID: CentOS
Description: CentOS release 5.4 (Final)
Release: 5.4
Codename: Final
Never mind, thanks anyway ;-)
And thanks to CentOS team for the good job !

CentOS is supposed to be a trademark free binary compatible version of RHEL right?... So what is the RHEL version that this is a copy of?
Do they keep the numbers the same? Is this RHEL 5.4 (minus trademarks)?

:: edit ::

Save the lmgtfy.com links... I found it on Wikipedia.
Hmm... is lmwtfy.com not registered?

doesn't mix with VMware Server 2

Just a heads-up so someone else doesn't run into the quagmire I did. CentOS 5.4 and VMware Server 2.0 DO NOT WORK TOGETHER at the moment (CentOS being the host OS). The glibc update from 5.3 to 5.4 breaks VMware.

If you've got a 5.3 system and you're about to update, exclude glibc, glibc-common, glibc-devel, glibc-headers, and nscd (dependent) from your update in /etc/yum.conf. 5.4 also likes to install KVM and associated kernel modules by default (which is nice). The kernel modules also don't like VMware very much, so if you do run VMware Server than be sure to unload the kmod_kvm modules prior to starting VMware, otherwise VMs won't start.

Hopefully an update to VMware Server 2 will fix this soon, but keep this in mind in the meantime.
