Red Hat (Fedora) vs Debian (Ubuntu)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 10, 2008
Okk, red hat is rpm based package management, and debian uses apt and .deb. Debian and Red Hat are server (mainly) with Ubuntu (yes I know its a totally different project based on debian, but could be considered the user friendly debian) and Fedora the desktop equivilants. So, what is the real differnces, cos im really confused. Had most experiance with Debian based systems through Ubuntu mainly. DOes the IT inductry use red hat/fedora though and how do the usability of both the command line and GUI really differ?
Any thoughts - begin the flame!
Stability comparision of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Debian 6 Squeeze!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2012
I have read a lot about Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and most reviews say its extremely stable. I would like to know your opinions about this. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is without doubt the first Ubuntu edition which is very stable and mostly bug free at release. This is what most reviews say. And if that is correct, give it a year and with updates from Canonical it could be as stable and bug free as Debian 6 is. This is what I think. What you think about this? Am I correct?
[SOLVED] Debian vs Slackware vs Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2011
1 - I'm trying to understand the differences betwenn debian, slaackware and ubuntu. Why some people prefer debian over the rest, others the slackware, or the ubuntu. What are the differences between slackware, debian or ubuntu?
2 - Sometimes I see packages that are made only for debian, or for ubuntu, and I don't understand why. The code shouldn't be equal to all platforms? After all, we're talking about linux.
[SOLVED] Debian server vs Ubuntu server vs Slackware for Quad Xeon DL580 G3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 17, 2011
I'm very new to Linux and I'm looking for some guidance on which version of Linux server I should install. I read several posts that try to compare Slackware, Debian server, and Ubuntu but the message I got is that each version has its pros/cons. The version that you end up using should ultimately be the best for what you are trying to do. I'll try to explain what I'm trying to do to see if it helps in making a recommendation.
I purchased a HP Proliant DL580 G3 with the following configuration:
(4) Intel Xeon 3.0Ghz CPU's W/ 8mb Cache/667mHz FSB
16GB RAM @ 16 x 1GB ELPIDA PC2-3200-333
(2) 36.4GB 15k U320 SCSI Hard Drives
(2) Power Supplies
This server will be configured as my web server and database server. I will use Apache and MySQL.
I want the server to be as secure as possible and will be following the recommendations on the book "Hacking Linux Exposed" to configure Linux.
I would like to install a version of Linux that
[SOLVED] Difference between various Linuxes:Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Centos, openSUSE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 20, 2011
I’m just starting out with Linux. I’ve got unixacademy training DVDs, new ASUS laptop, eight books and about zillion questions. The first question and I really appreciate if someone would contribute a minute for addressing it: What is the difference between all the Linuxes around there? My training comes bundled with bunch of various Linux installation DVDs and I have tried few: Ubuntu,Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Centos, Kubuntu and few other. After installation they all look practically identical, with SAME Gnome or KDE running. I was trying “uname” and “lsmod” commands and they all run the same kernel and the same set of drivers! So what makes them different?! Why are we talking about this Linux and that Linux? Is the difference is only skin deep in colorful screens shown during the installation?
CentOS vs Ubuntu/Debian? (Repositories)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 19, 2011
Is it my impression or are the repositories for CentOS not as complete as the ones for Ubuntu/Debian, i.e. not as much software available?
I was looking for example htop and x2goserver and could not find them.
I am not talking about adding more repositories (unofficial ones) I mean comparision, 1:1, from what comes out of the box, when you activate all repositories that CentOS itself comes with, as well as the ones of a Debian or Ubuntu box and then compare.
Is there software that is available on CentOS, but not on Ubuntu? Examples?
I am just curious if yum has helped CentOS reach the level of where your typical Ubuntu/Debian is, where anything and everything is available via repositories and downloading and manually installing packages is a thing of the past.
How many packages are available on a CentOS with all standard repositories activated? (and non added by hand)
LXer: DistroWatch Weekly: Debian "etch" update, Red Hat vs Novell, Ubuntu For NonGeeks
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2006
Published at LXer:
Welcome to this year's 37th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! With many of the major distributions in the final stages of their development work, this is possibly the most exciting period of the year. It shouldn't be long before the new versions from Slackware and Mandriva are released, with Fedora, openSUSE and Debian following shortly. Mandriva Linux 2007 is now starting to look really good, while Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 "etch" is shaping up to be a real breakthrough for the largest Linux distribution project. Fedora Core is also getting a complete makeover - at least in the look and feel department. This issue is devoted to all the upcoming new releases, with further news covering the availability of KDE 4 packages for Kubuntu, a new major version of GParted LiveCD, and an interesting interview with the developers of PC-BSD. In our latest book review, we'll take a quick look at Ubuntu Linux For Non-Geeks by Rickfort Grant. Happy reading!

Parsix is a Debian, introduce this nice distro!
location: linux.com - date: May 16, 2010
Hi, I'm a user of linux distributions such as ubuntu, suse, fedora, Arch, min, mandriva, sabayon, and Parsix.
I want to say something about this distro, it's the best distro I've ever used. I don't want to say Parsix is the best one, I just say it's the best for my needs.
I believe that everybody who uses Ubuntu will love Parsix and leave ubuntu. It's faster, more stable, and more usable than ubuntu.
please take e look at their Forums at http://parsix.org and just test the latest release of Parsix, and tell us your comments here. ;)
Why headphones work with Ubuntu, Fedora and Scientific Linux but not Debian Wheezy?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 28, 2013
I am trying to figure out why my headphones work with Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 18 and Scientific Linux 6.4 but not Debian Wheezy? With the others all sound is fully functional out of the box.
Basic speaker sound in Debian works although it is a little tinny.
I am trying to install on a late 2011 Apple Intel iMac 27 inch model. For every other distro other than Debian the headphones work outside the box. I would prefer to run Debian if possible.
Is it something in the Kernel? Would copying the .config from Ubuntu and using it to compile a new Debian Kernel work?
