Why RISC it? Move forward with HP and RHEL 6

With IT budgets shrinking and the cost, risk, dependence of maintaining and replacing RISC and Mainframe environments increasing, you need to understand the alternatives. For a fraction of the cost your company can move to an open, flexible, standards-based environment running next generation HP ProLiant servers and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.


Consider the benefits you will gain from a consolidated, more energy efficient, better utilized, easier managed and serviced Red Hat and HP Converged Infrastructure and the cost savings really begin adding up. And with years of proven migration expertise, you can be confident HP and Red Hat’s ability to deliver a smooth, seamless migration experience.


When you migrate and consolidate your expensive RISC/Mainframe infrastructure don’t be worried about an underutilized infrastructure?  HP designs systems and services for virtualization. Combining Red Hat kernel based-virtualization and HP designed virtualization systems and services results in a cost-effective, performance tuned virtual infrastructure.

Under the new RHEL 6 (new installation from scratch)

sh fails with

warning: There are 1 missing REQUIRED dependencies.
note: Installation of dependencies requires an active internet connection.
warning: Missing REQUIRED dependency: libusb (libusb - USB library)
warning: This installer cannot install 'libusb' for your distro/OS and/or version.
error: Installation cannot continue without this dependency. Please manually install this dependency and re-run this installer.
Similarly installation fails when using the tarball hplip-3.10.9.tar.gz following you description on the web (including setting of the selinux to permissive). All describer commands exute except one never obtains hp-setup.

Please advise.
