Hi

I want to run a web server that can do life streaming. What version of centos is good for this or what linux os is good for this. I need to install red5 or FMS. Could i also use hyperVM? Do i need install php etc? If have install a server or streaming media can you please tell me in detail the steps you done. Thank you for your help.

I have also tried to install centos 5.7 and it goes to a blank screen after it does the bit of the graphics card.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature. That will educate you about many things, including the prohibition against dual-posting. Your other thread has been locked.

The blank screen issue is likely a graphics driver issue, but we would need information about your system to help with that.

I have no idea what you mean by "red5 or FMS".

By HyperVM I presume you mean installing CentOS as a virtual machine under Hyper-V. If you want a reliable and efficient server CentOS should be installed on the bare metal and not within a RedmondOS.

If you have additional questions after doing the recommended reading, please ask one question at a time with an appropriate subject for each, providing more details to explain your question.

My graphics card is a ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 series.

Once i have installed say centos 5.4, what should i install next?
Hyper VM is like a cpanel. I have installed centos 6.0 but Hyper VM is not supported.
I installed webmin on centos 6, but i am having problems with the port forwarding to make my web address load in the browser.
I dont know which is better webmin or hyper VM.
FMS is flash media server and Red5 is like FMS, but its free.

You should never install obsolete versions. The current CentOS-5 release is 5.7. I can't comment on the virtues of any control panels as, based on questions here, they all seem to use non-standard approaches, replace core packages with source installs, or otherwise cause more problems than they solve. Better IMHO to just learn how to manage the system without such add-ons.

As far as a media server, there are several options in the well-know Repositories. To get a more targeted recommendation you need to better explain your requirements.
