Which Urchin distribution is right for my Linux system?


There are many different variants of Linux and we don't build an individual Urchin distribution for all of them. However, there is typically a high degree of compatibility across Linux flavors so one of our distributions almost certainly will work on your machine. If you look at our supported platforms page in the Non-Explicitly Supported Platforms section you may see a specific reference to your Linux OS that identifies which Urchin distribution to use. If you don't see your OS listed, you can determine which Urchin installer to use by running the command:

rpm -qa | grep glibc

or, in Debian Linux,

apt-cache show glibc | grep Version

in a shell window. Then look at the list below, which shows the Linux OSes Urchin is built on and the glibc library dependencies that exist on our machines. Using the information from the rpm command find the glibc versions that are closest to, but not higher than, your glibc versions. Then download the Urchin installer for the OS type and version shown at the left of that row.

  • Redhat 6 - glibc-2.1.1-6, glibc-devel-2.1.1-6
  • Redhat 7.2 - glibc-2.2.4-13, glibc-common-2.2.4-13, glibc-devel-2.2.4-13
  • Redhat 8 - glibc-2.2.93-5, glibc-common-2.2.93-5, glibc-devel-2.2.93-5
  • Redhat 9 - glibc-2.3.2-11.9, glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9, glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9
  • Redhat Enterprise 3 - glibc-2.3.2-95.27, glibc-common-2.3.2-95.27, glibc-devel-2.3.2-95.27
  • Fedora 1 - glibc-2.3.2-101, glibc-common-2.3.2-101, glibc-devel-2.3.2-101
  • Fedora 2 - glibc-2.3.3-27, glibc-common-2.3.3-27, glibc-devel-2.3.3-27
  • SuSE 9 - glibc-2.3.3-97, glibc-devel-2.3.3-97

Note that although the majority of Linux OSes use RPM packages some do not and they may not have the rpm command available. You will have to determine what equivalent command is appropriate for your system in order to retrieve the information on your glibc versions.
