Converting rhel to Centos


Converting rhel to centos


migration from RHEL to CentOS, done!

This is my existing Rhel login screen

I decided to migrate to CentOS, which is compatible Enterprise Linux Vendor ;-) . It was simple and straightforward as shown on the page of the official CentOS’ wiki.

Follow the given command sequence..

cp /etc/redhat-release /etc/redhat-release.bkp

rpm -e --nodeps redhat-release-notes redhat-release yum-rhn-plugin redhat-logos

We’ve nearly there … I’ve manually downloaded on the system the three packages: centos-release, centos-release-notes and redhat-logos-X.X.XX-XX.el5.centos.noarch.rpm  and then installed them.

yum update
completed the process and here we are:


[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/issue
CentOS release 5.7 (Final)
