    I need help desicding what is the best version of Linux to have. RedHat 9.0 X graphic features are not working on my server, and the older version as I remember correctly doesn't work either. Can anyone suggest an version. I'm on madrake now but when I logged on it came up with "shell" stragiht away and a clock next to it (on the rite hand side) no desktop or menu has come up so I installed it from there ... once I restart my server Cpanel doesn't load and on the screen it's all colours and everthing ???

    Thanks for people who suggest an version

    Have a read of this thread:

    RH9 is a very bad idea as it's been EOL for a long time now and you will have security issues if you're still using the original app rpms.

    You cannot use the X environment on a cPanel server - the cPanel install disables it. X has no place on a production web server and as part of the server preparation, you should not install it. As per the cPanel instructions, you should do a minimal server installation of your chosen OS.

    mind what chirpy says tho, don't install X or any desktop shit, minimal install, cpanel will fill the gaps (hopefully with no bugs)

    Cpanel is designed to be managed from the whm in web browser and via command line in ssh there is nothing that you would need the GUI desktop for in managing a cpanel enabled server.

    And besides like chirpy said cpanel disables the Xwindows GUI.

    If your not comfortable with using ssh/shell to manage your server you can do a search on the cpanel forum and find instructions on how to fix/manage/update anything you would need to do and if there is something you do not understand then post it on the forum and one of us will be glad to assit you

    And as far as a OS to use I recommend CentOS 3.5 or CentOS4.1
