What does your application do where it requires x32abi? –  ewwhite Dec 7 '12 at 13:48

My fully-updated Fedora 16 box is currently running 3.4.11, and presumably F17 will be even newer (apparently, 3.6.9). That said, these are in my opinion unsuitable for a server OS because of their very fast release cycle, frequent destabilising upgrades, and short support lifetime.

Sadly, it's those very properties that mean they're running a fairly cutting-edge kernel, which makes me wonder why you feel you need to be running such a recent kernel on a server (I'm assuming it's a server because you were looking at CentOS; if it's a desktop, that's different, try F17, it's great).

Buy a bigger server. Running a desktop distro on a server to save money is foolish, imho. –  MadHatter Dec 7 '12 at 9:46
