Re: Ubuntu Server 13.04 x64 Setup

Of the core developers, only lautan and I work with Linux at all, and only lautan uses it as his primary development platform. I think it is also fairly safe to assume more servers out in the wild are running on windows boxes, although if you are trying to set up a server on a VPS a linux box will ...

Re: Hardware Requirements for Server

Well, luckily compiling software on linux is usually straightforward. If you are willing to learn then Lubuntu makes a good starter desktop distro that will run well on less-than stellar hardware. It'll give you a windows-ish desktop environment to work from and all the amenities of a modern linux ...

Re: Hardware Requirements for Server

I recommend Debian mainly because the installer lets you install a very bare-bones system so you can install only what you need using apt. That said, its not as small as DSL but it also has a much richer availability of packages. If you are going to install a full desktop environment anyway then it...

Re: Hardware Requirements for Server

My personal recommendation is Debian, but you may find that the packages it installs are often a little more outdated than you like in the stable version so testing might be more suitable. If you run a 32-bit program in a 64-bit OS, the program itself is restricted to seeing 4 GB of RAM. Thanks to ...

Re: Hardware Requirements for Server

If you are running a dedicated server you can avoid the load that a hefty OS puts on a system by running it on a linux system without running a graphical desktop environment. hmmm.... all cmd prompt linux? what distro is generally used? i was thinking something way small like a hard drive install o...

Re: Hardware Requirements for Server

Running a server on a 64-bit OS is currently not possible, but I have put in work towards making that possible on occasion and its getting rather close now. In order to make use of the GPU at all, a lot of the basic code of the server would have to be changed. If you are running a dedicated server ...
