Currently, dedicated to locate Nethserver replacing Zentyal , I’m using Centos 7. Nothing really regret only my daily conversations with SELinux lol
Right now I am using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for my main desktop, Centos 7 of my Nagios Server, ubuntu server 14.04 on OCS NG and linux mint 17 Xfce on laptop
Btw, did anyone tried to use chaletOS? If im not mistaken this distro is based on debian too. I install it to my friends laptop and she never notice the difference from Win7
This made me LOL. I’m running CentOS 7 at home on my hp microserver gen8. I know exactly what you mean.
Although I’m trying to change this, I’d say I’m still most fond of Ubuntu because it’s what I’m most familiar with. I still have a handful of Ubuntu Desktop VMs at the office for testing and I maintain about a dozen production Ubuntu Servers.
So is the life . In my daily work support KXStudio on iMac computers for audiovisual production. I try to be compassionate to Zentyal in schools … but in my heart i’m Manjaro .
It’s the second time I play with CentOS. First with Kaltura MAM (CentOS 5) and now Nethserver.
CentOS always coincides with an interesting project
this is for the win
Using Open Source to create a customized Linux distribution
I started with Centos from day 1, moving from the original Whitehat? (so long ago, I forgot what it was called!). I moved my notebook from early Centos (perhaps 3?) to Fedora 6. Been on Fedora since then (now at 28). My Samba PDC is ClearOS6.
These days I am almost entirely armv7 for my servers. Centos-arm7 predominates. One Fedora-arm28.
I use Xfce as my DE when I can. I was introduced to Xfce with my first armv7 Fedora spin (on a Cubieboard2 with Fedora17). For my servers, I run vncserver and connect to Xfce that way when I need a GUI to manage the server (can’t do everything with SSH). A little Gnome, but I would like to eliminate it. I just don’t use it enough to be proficient with it.
Mint with XFCE. (But I have some Omnios servers and [too many] windows laptops). The Mint machines “just work”.
hi robert, nice to see you around and share your experience
I used to be a long time Ubuntu user. But since about half a year now, I switched to Fedora. Currently I have Fedora 28 installed and I really like the distro.
Just 1 minor problem: with newer kernels I have this nasty bug that as soon as I drop the lid of my laptop and after that, pull it up again, Fedora reboots spontaniously. I filed a bugreport on RH bugzilla. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1592049 Unfortunately no response from the RH devs…
Long time Fedora user for desktop and Centos for server
For a very long time for servers only CentOS and now NethServer.
For Desktop… starting from RedHat 5.0(!), then Debian, after that Slack and Ubuntu. After that for a long time CentOS 6, and now Fedora since version… 19 ?
Did you try NethServer DC? I’d like to know your thoughts compared to ClearOS
Did you replace many CentOS?
On some CentOS servers I have only added your repo, and it worked with some tweaks
If I will have to count it should be maybe 7-8 CentOS - not so much - but since I have found NS it is my only solution for servers.
I have one NS7 on VPS which is providing e-commerce solutions and it is working for 1 year … without any problems
That’s a good news
Please, “our” repo. I/we don’t own any repo
7-8 are a good number. Congratulations
Sounds great! Which kind of software are you using?
PrestaShop 1.6.x and because I have SSH shell then I could add some addidtional software like iocube etc.
Don’t worry. It was supposed to be a joke
I am just getting started. I was working on replacing my ClearOS6 server with ClearOS7. I would switch from a HP SFF box pulling 80W to a Zotac pulling 20W, but I was having heating problems with the Zotac putting in a 1TB drive. And I am much more now an arm advocate. ClearOS has no clear plan for supporting arm, or at least they will not answer my question.
I was contacted by Nethserver because of my work on the Centos-arm list and that I have a working email server (though right now with Redsleeve6) on armv7. Your team has an active interest in supporting arm units. The arm board pulls 10W.
So I come check out your platform and see that you have a Samba setup. This is attractive. I will put up a server (on an armv7 board) and see if it will meet my needs.
So it is quite premature to comment/compare. I have made some posts in the development area on matters so far. I hope that this month will see me get some solid testing done. And perhaps a new Sambe PDC and a new mailserver.
I love to compare stats. I am at quite different hardware than you are.
I think my server is very decent if you consider performance vs energy.
this is my hardware:
- Intel Xeon D1521 processor (4cores/8threads) @ 2.4GhZ
- 16 GB ECC memory
- 1 x 60GB SSD for cache
- 1 x 250GB HDD for ProxMox and ‘local storage’
- 2 x 2TB ZFS raid1 pool for storage of VM’s and CT’s
- 2 x 8TB ZFS raid1 pool for starage of VM’s and CT’s
All this is pulling 70W with 7 VM’s running:
Most VM’s have 2GB memory(available, not necessarily using) and 32GB virtual disk, except for my “main” NS7 VM which has 6GB RAM and 900GB virtual disk.
