Hello,

On my home server, which I wait to be delivered, I need Apache Tomcat, MySQL, few croned C programmes and GIT/SVN. I am pretty sure I do not need any kind of GUI to do that - just command line with root + few users to ensure www safety.

1. Is Vector Linux good choice for me?
2. Do administrators often choose it as server system?
3. I will have old HP ProLiant DL380 G3 - are older machines somehow supported?
4. Will these few applications I need be easily installed and configured or there are some known problems?
5. Is it easy to install Vector Linux without X?

Thank you

edit: Should I go for VL 6 or is VL7 stable enough now? (I know it is fresh edition)

As I remember you can choose minimum installation at installation stage which will take away a lot of xfce, gnome and other X stuff...and choose TUI log in as default in vasm...
You can use VL as a server but you have manually configure everything yourself and some service packages may not be available in the VL repo...you might need to manually compile yourself or request the packages in the forum...
It would be fun to see how well VL to act as a server Smiley
Happy venturing...

VL is not recommended for a server installation.

You can not install without X

You should be able to compile the programs without alot of problems.

If you do give it a try, please get involved with helping create a VL Server edition. Feedback about your experience and recommendations would be greatly appreciated over at the VL Server project page

Yeah, right.  I installed VL 7.0 and I have absolutely no X.  But then again that may be just an error.
