Best Distribution for a home-cum-development server
I have an old Pentium-4, 2GB RAM, 2X160GB IDE-Hard disk computer.
I am learning software development and I need a distribution with support for
(a) Oracle/Sun Glassfish v3 server
(b) Apache web server
(c) MySQL server
(d) Postgres server
(e) Sun virtual-box (headless)
For my home use, I need a proxy server and a file-and-print server (e.g. samba)
I need to be able to run it headless. It should be easy to configure, but should also be like a real-world linux-distribution.
So, which distribution would you recommend?
I would suggest CentOS. Alternativ SLES.
a) 100% free
b) Binary compatible with RedHat
c) Stabile ( as for as i have tested it)
d) in a commercial surrounding you could use RedHat with profession support, if the customer wants it.
Additional hint: If you want to install Oracle you need to change the /etc/CentOS-release to look like it is RedHat. ( I read that somewhere in the net)
b) professionel support if needed
c) you may use OpenSuse for trying at home
What about Ubuntu Server 10.04?
Every distro from Linux Jazz http://www.amazon.com/6-disks-Introd...7050337&sr=8-2 will do. I personally prefer Fedora 13.
