I'm not sure with AIX but from my understanding you don't need to do this in Unix. After a bit of time your RAM will be released when the program that was using it no longer is running.

Since you're going to give FreeBSD a go, which in my opinion is a very wise choice :p , have a look at the Handbook (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/index.html) . It will...

Hi tamemi,

Your version of RH is VERY out of date. There could be issues with other parts of the OS that are just too out of date to be compatible with new versions of software.

Thats my guess...

It would be a lot better if you install the applications you need via ports as patches and such that are required for FreeBSD are added during install. You can still install your applications the old...

Why not take a look at some of the *BSD's. They are free, based on BSD OS and will give you an insight into other types of Unix.
My preference is FreeBSD. :)

mmmmm....Just might have to look into getting a copy of Solaris just to learn a bit more. Although running it on i386 architecture isn't the best I suppose.

I suppose it all comes down to what you want to do.

I've never used Solaris before so my answer will more than likely be completely wrong but.....

Under FreeBSD you use tar -zxvf <file>
Is it the same for Solaris?

Hi sajjan2,

I'm not familiar yet with DNS but it will help others to know what OS you are running. You said Unix but thats a doesn't really tell us much. Is it Solaris, FreeBSD, HP-UX??

If your running FreeBSD you can check the Handbook (http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/dns.html) . I'm sure it will give you some insight even if your not using FreeBSD.
