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.
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?
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?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2011
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

All the OS are Linux based ( using Linux platform ). The interface (GUI) in all of these are pretty much same. What are the basic differences in different Linux based OS and why so many different OS has been designed. What was the purpose and Idea behind so many OS which are pretty much same.
Which among all of these OS is best and why ??
Scientific Linux any good when put up against Lubuntu, Fedora, RHEL, or Crunchbang?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2012
Hey guys! Just found out about Scientific Linux, which is basically a free clone of RHEL, and just asking, how does it stack up against the likes of RHEL, Fedora, Lubuntu, or Crunchbang? I mean it looks pretty sweet and all, but still.
Also, a little curious about MidnightBSD as well, along with OpenIndiana.

I'm not sure but Scientific Linux looks to me it is full of math and complicated graphics applications.
I didn't try it but could it be used as a desktop OS?
Running Ubuntu and Scientific Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2009
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 and Scientific Linux 5.3 on my Toshiba Satellite laptop. But no matter the order of installation, or change the settings, I cannot get them to work together.
I am aware that Scientific Linux doesn't like having another distro with / as root, so I worked under the assumption that I should install SL first, then Ubuntu. But I come up with GRUB problems. I get:
GRUB Loading stage1.5.
GRUB loading, please wait...
and the system freezes.
Should I install the SL distro, with the SL GRUB then the Ubuntu distro and it's GRUB, or variations?
I don't care which order I install the distros, as long as I get them both working where I can boot either at start up.
Please help! It's been driving me mad.
updating GRUB in Scientific Linux 6.4 or Live Ubuntu 13.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2013
I've been working on dual booting Windows 7 and Scientific Linux 6.4 on my computer (HP Pavilion dv6 with i686 processor and nvidia GEFORCE GT graphics card), and I've run into some trouble with the actual dual boot part.
I couldn't install SL6.4 originally because I got a warning that said "Disks sda, sdb contain BIOD RAID metadata, but are not part of any recognized BIOS RAID sets. Ignoring disks sda, sdb."
I followed the instructions from asymptoticFault on this page http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2038121 After I deleted the metadata, I was then able to put SL6.4 on the parition. I ran into the same problem as asymptoticFault with GRUB, but, I think since I was only using a live version of Ubuntu, I was unable to use "update-grub" because "error-failed to get canonical path of /cow".
I tried to follow the instructions from http://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair...d#.UbhsJ9I3tCg but, perhaps since I an using SL6.4 instead of Ubuntu, w
