Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® is a standards-based UNIX®-like operating system that provides a development environment similar to SunTM SolarisTM. The shell and development tools are very familiar to anyone with experience working in UNIX environments. This paper looks to highlight some of the major differences between Solaris and Red Hat Enterprise Linux to help application developers port their code. It will cover differences in the shell environment, using the RPM package manager, and using the GNU development tools. This is not an exhaustive document; it's meant to get Solaris developers working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux quickly.
