As stated in
here is the list of various versions of UNIX which we certify as working
correctly with the CERN-recommended libraries, tools and utilities as
of September, 1998:
Because of other priorities, the certification of
Solaris 2.6 got
delayed but is now almost effective. We are in the process of certifying
Linux Redhat 5.1 (new Linux based on glibc) and
HP-UX 10.20 ACE
(necessary for the year 2000 compliance and the recent hardware).
- Linux Redhat 4.1/4.2 - certified
- Solaris 2.5.1 - certified
- Solaris 2.6 - certified
- HP-UX 10.20 - certified
- Digital UNIX 4.0.b - certified
- AIX/6000 4.1.5 - certified
- AIX/6000 4.2.1 - certified
The introduction of Digital UNIX 4.0.d is advisable (year 2000
compliant) and we hope to find resources to do it in the near future.
For those interested in the certification process, it is described in
the Web page:
The latest news on the certification procedure are always
published in the newsgroups associated with each UNIX flavour (for
summarised in the Web page listed above and in each coming CNL.
