We have 4 version of CentOS at the moment and a few arches for each.
It's the minimum requirement to state the version and architecture.

I am running CentOS too, which information does that provide?
If I say I am running CentOS-3.9 on i386/x86_64 that reduce the search scope
for everyone reading your help request. :P

I don't imply it has to be a problem on your server, but the more
details you provide, the better. ;)
