Now RHEL/CentOS won't be able to run on PC Engines ALIX hardware (with PAE
enabled in CentOS 6 the kernel needed recompiled, but that's not too
horrible). I opted to run another distro, so I never went through all the
work for ALIX hardware.
In a way it's a shame...
At the same time I can see why RH is going x86_64 only ... much hardware in
data centers is 64bit capable and running 64bit OSes.
And they're also will be supporting three releases (5, 6, 7) for a period
of time as well.
It's probably a good time to consider other alternatives. :-/
Fedora, Debian, Voyage, OpenWrt, Gentoo, etc, etc.
Unless it's embedded hardware ... by the time EL6 isn't supported I'll be
you'll have a beefier x86_64 machine as a firewall! :)
