Which version of Ubuntu is Best ?

  • Hi all,

    I see in the user guides that Ubuntu 10.04 is one of the recommended flavours of linux to run a Fog Server. What are your opinion’s about using the newest Ubuntu server version 12.04 ?

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions.

    I prefer 10.04 LTS so I’ll have updates to the system for a while. A lot of stuff has been done with Fog on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, so the knowledge base is larger than the new versions. If you wave to be a pioneer, go with the newer ones, but if you need it to work and have lots of resources for problems, stick with 10.04 LTS.

  • I’ve tried on Ubuntu 12.04 before but it was just a brief moment.

    I still like to use FOG 0.32 on Ubuntu 11.10. Ubuntu 12.04 seems to have change some of the commands which I’m familiar with on Ubuntu 11.10.

  • There has been some early testing on v 12 but nothing offically supported yet. Version 0.32 came out around the time (and was supported by) 10 and 11. I don’t think 12 works out of the box with 0.32, but I’m sure it will with 0.33.

    More info on testing with the latest version of Fedora and Ubuntu can be found on the Dev forum.
