Need some feedback about ubuntu versions.



  • Hey guys,

    Excuse me again for my English …

    I’ve been rewarded a trophy for my first message, maybe I’ll be for my second too !
    I’m testing FOG in a school and I need to know if I can use a LTS version of Ubuntu.I read on a FOG Wiki that 12.04 and 14.04 are buggy and that 13.10 is recommanded. But maybe it has changed (or not…) ?
    I installed it on an Ubuntu 13.10 VM so it didn’t matter but I have now to put this on a physical server.

    Maybe I can use a Debian version ?
    What do you recommand me to use ?

    And do I have to download these files : bzimage, bzimage32 (2014-12-17) ? (sorry, it’s not in the right place to ask that)

    Thanks in advance for reading and answering me.

    LTS is the Preferred method when installing a linux OS. Its Long Time Support (woot!)

    Ubuntu 12.04 is still on the LTS list ;)

    I only recommend a stable release if there is a fix that is needed, or they really bork the LTS.

    Sometimes we developers don’t build in fixes in for stable releases at least not right out of the gate. It is NEVER recommended to use a recent release with FOG, unless you like troubleshooting and documenting and want a “fun” (I use this term loosely) experience in learning FOG all over again! We never know what is broken but then, sometimes canonical fixes it for us, not often enough though (such as with the upstart bug) Or the problems that are caused by using DNSMASQ-base by default for the network manager… sigh gone are the old days of the 10.04.

    [quote=“Jaymes Driver, post: 40594, member: 3582”]LTS would be a fine choice for FOG :)

    The only issue FOG had with some versions of Ubuntu, was an upstart bug OF UBUNTU, that they really took some time to fix, then bring back, and fix, and bring back again. It’s hard to say what is going to be broken again because Ubuntu isn’t exactly following the Debian mold any more.

    I would look into a pure Debian LTS.[/quote]
