Scientific Linux (SL) vs Ubuntu ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 20, 2012
I want to know the difference between SL and Ubuntu. I am very used to work with Ubuntu since 3 years,
I came to know about scientific linux some weeks ago, I search some information on the site https://www.scientificlinux.org/ but could not find similarities or difference with other Linux Distros except repositories (apt and yum) etc.
Could anyone of you have any experience, please share it for other's knowledge. Thanks !
I thank you for your time.
LXer: CentOS vs. Oracle vs. Scientific Linux 6.1 Performance
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 14, 2011
Published at LXer:
While CentOS, Scientific Linux, and Oracle Linux Server are all derived from the same upstream source (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), how does the system performance compare between these RHEL derivatives? Here are some benchmarks of each of the 6.1 releases for Oracle Server, CentOS, and Scientific Linux, as they all do not perform the same.

Has any one experienced working with "Scientific linux"? what's the difference between these two linux distributions and is "Scientific linux" really better than ubuntu for scientists and science students?
Debian 6.04 vs. Scientific Linux 6.2
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 3, 2012
I have used every version of Windows since Win2000. On Dec.28.10, I decided to make the switch to Linux. I have been very happy in my new world of CLI's and such.
I have been running elementary OS "Jupiter" for a few months now, but it is time for a change. I have looked at my options and singled out two:
- Debian 6.04
- Scientific Linux 6.2
Which of these is more reliable? Which has a better community backing it for support? In short, which should I use?
CentOS is dead... Long live Scientific Linux?

The fans and users of CentOS, the most popular among the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) clones, are slowly coming to a realisation that the project is grappling with serious troubles. As six months have passed since the release of RHEL 6 without any sign of CentOS 6, some are wondering whether they might not be better off using the "other" RHEL clone - Scientific Linux. Greg Smith summarises his feelings in "The rise and fall of CentOS": "If I needed a sign that it was time for me to start installing Scientific Linux 6, this week I found it. Any long-time user of RPM-based distributions has probably used a package from a Dag Wieers repository at some point. ... Well, that party is over. Last week Dag publicly announced that he was resigning from CentOS development work, seemingly over the development team's communication issues. In the comments there, Dag specifically suggests Scientific Linux as the right distribution to move to now, saying that 'their proces

How do I install a VPN in CentOS 6.3 / Scientific Linux 6.3?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 17, 2013
I've been looking for an easy to follow tutorial on how to install a VPN in CentOS 6.3 / Scientific Linux 6.3 which has Browser Appliance 10.0.9.
I've tried Linux site, Google, YouTube ,and CentOS.org but can't find any instructions or tutorials that are non-complicated.
I'm new to Linux obviously and the best I can find on installing a VPN in CentOS is be "root" and run "yum" command and something about "sudos" (I think its called).
I've spent hours researching but can't find anything useful so does anyone know of a easy to follow step-by-step tutorial on how to install a VPN in CentOS by any chance?
[SOLVED] Performance difference RHEL, CentOS, Scientific Linux??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2014
Hello everyone. Let me get to the point.
I am a physicist, and one of the things I do is number crunching --- solid state physics and other physics calculations. That is, I do a lot of numerical analysis and require HPC (high performance computing) for my research needs --- i.e. multiprocessor, parallel computing using MPI (mostly OpenMPI, but I could try MPICH I suppose), with Fortran (and soon also C, C++).
I currently have two really nice machines running CentOS 5.10, a Dell Precision T5500 with two quad-core processors and a Dell Poweredge 2900 also with two quad-core processors, and I am considering migrating to a version 6 of one of the above in the subject.
I've been doing a search on the web and in the forums here, but I have not found a real concrete answer to this: is there any real performance difference (and/or ease of use, and/or package content) for scientific purposes between RHEL, CentOS, Scientific Linux? I know that CentOS and SL are basically the same as RHE
Ubuntu better than CentOS for servers. Windows vs Linux, .deb vs .exe
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2010
Hello. I am enjoying using Ubuntu but I have one question.
I recently rented a CentOS for around 6 months, and the glibc package was broken
Therefore, every now and then, apache would say
******** glibc detected ***************
and apache would leak memory like crazy and in 30 seconds the load would go from 4 to 120
so I developed a program that checks the load every 30 second and stops/starts apache, mysql, lighttpd... based on the load
Anyway, I did some research and finally found that glibc was a faulty package on Red Hat, and since CentOS is a RedHat clone, yum updated this faulty glibc (automatically or when I installed a package, I don't remember)
The 'solution' was to download CentOS 5.2, and install the glibc package in a 'forced' mode.
Now, I tried to download CentOS 5.2 and they are not allowing people to download that version anymore (since they want you to download CentOS 5.4)
So the solution was complicated
find a new server (I requested Ubun
