[OpenSIPS-Users] Installing OpenSIPS on Red Hat

Hi Guys,

Just to clarify a bit here  - from OpenSIPS perspective, all LINUX 
distro are fully supported (like compiling and runing) and most of 
UNIX-like OS (BSD, SOLARIS, etc).

There is no difference is running OpenSIPS on Debian or RedHat - you 
just need to take care of the dependencies (packaging is different on 
the 2 distros) and the init script. Otherwise it is the same.

Again, OpenSIPS is not Debian-only supported/focused.
