Red Hat Linux 6.2

I remember like if it was today the first time I installed Linux in my computer. I was 12 years ago and I bought a magazine, from Spain, that came with the CD of Red Hat 6.1.

I completely destroyed my partition table with Disk Druid, that I don’t know how could recover later. Once the installation was complete,  several days after the issue, I started to fight with my monitor to use 1024 x 768, the only way was using a very low horizontal frequency between 50-60 Hz, but I had to fight with Vertical frequency as well to get it working. Once working as the frequency was low it wasn’t really good for my eyes but it looked nice for screenshots. I used to take lots of screenshots that I have to find some day to post them.

These were recently taken from my VM:

I’m sharing this VM with the world, I’m planning to start uploading VM’s of old Linux distributions, so everyone can see how GNU/Linux was 10 years ago or maybe when it started.

How to install it?

  1. Thank you. I bought that very cd 11 years ago, I still have it, that, corel linux os with wordperfect, freebsd-4.2 and something called turbo linux. It’s good to reminisce.

    1. Yes, totally. I started using this particular RH version. I had the Corel one too!! But it never worked for me due that my monitor and that distribution didn’t work together. Well, thanks for visiting my blog!
