    Fuck you, RedHat

    Why don't I have iostat and memstat? Why did I have to hunt down the "optional" sysstat RPM in order to get them? Every UNIX machine has these tools, what the fuck is your problem? You gonna take ifconfig and netstat next?
    Noodles

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Before we get into the distro flame war, know that I'm forced to support RedHat Enterprise at work.

    No, I can find no fault there.

    The problem with redhat is that EL requires a subscription for updates, so if you run a server class platform, congrats, Linux is no longer free.

    btw you might be able to get away with installing apt and installing your utils from there, if you can hook up to the right repository.

    I have a subscription, since my company is paying for the licenses. They came with our servers. I also have contention with the fact that we're paying for something that should be free.

    I was able to grab it with up2date, but my point is that I shouldn't have to. Every other distro I've used installs the sys stat tools by default. RedHat consistently shows itself to be one of the more inferior distros.

    Red Hat= HatRed?
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.
