  • ^ I suggest used Debian. If your not comportable you can try CentOS which is base from RHEL.
  • @alpharomeo33
    nasa iyo yan kung saan ka confortable na distro ng Linux dun mo gawin, since ikaw ang mag su support nya.
    here is the list of some Linux equivalent ng mga Commercial

    RHEL = CentOS, Scientific Linux, Scientific Linux CERN edition, Oracle
    Debian = Ubuntu, Linux Mint etc
  • @alpharomeo33:
    pero right now hindi ko alam kung ano maganda OS version ang gamitin. Maganda sana ang RHEL pero I think may subscrition ang downloading ng RHEL 6 (although I was under the impression na free and open source ang linux). Ang SLEX11 naman kelangan pa mag sign-in para lang maka download and I think malaki ang file download nun. Where as now I am left with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS which is the most convenient to get and I think mas madali ang setup for a server. Ano kaya sir suggestion mo? what Linus OS should I get? Our existing Linux OS is debian 5

    Trabahong tamad ito pero since nabanggit mo na Debian na ang gamit, yun na ang ituloy mo para less hassle. Pero on a personal note, Slackware or derivatives work well as servers. Kasi very light sa resources. Kung Ubuntu naman, ease of use talaga. :-)
    It's up to you.

    @all:
    Btw, I just found out that AMD's latest drivers work pretty well with both Debian 6 & Slackware 14. I'm using derivatives of both Linux. Hehe...
  • Hi Linux/UX admins

    Asking for your inputs:

    scenario: UX/Linux box, 8/more possible CPU core available for processes

    one process in particular (lets call it process1) seems to utilize EXCLUSIVELY just 1 CPU core, IE: CPU1 is at 100% util and CPU2-CPU8 are well below threshold limit.

    QUESTIONS:
    is there any sense on having your process utilize just 1 CPU core when there are 8 or so available?
    what are the implications of just letting process1 run till it finishes (pabayaan si CPU1 na 100% util hanggang matapos si process1)?
    Are devs known to create processes that are designed to utilize just 1 core?

    TIA
  • remember: most applications are single threaded unless it was coded to utilized multiple threads.

    especially for batch jobs, so if you know the dev of the process1, ask if he/she can optimize it to use multiple threads, otherwise SOL.

    this is actually the same with Windows, the only problem with windows is that there's so much bloat that all cores are being utilized (by the bloat), and when you are watching task manager, you'll see that all cores 'seems' to be utilized.
  • remember: most applications are single threaded unless it was coded to utilized multiple threads.


    @baratzki

    thanks for the input sir, this makes a lot of sense. followup question lang:

    lets say process1 is indeed single-threaded. Process1 runs, utilizing core1 fully (100%).

    then there's another single-threaded process, lets call it process2, runs at the same time.

    will it (process1) impact process2 and process2 will not run at all, or will it utilize another free core to its own?

    thanks again Linux/UX folks!
  • ^

    short answer, no. They shouldn't affect each other.
  • Good day po mga sir, gusto ko sana itry at pag aral ang ubuntu linux at balak ko install sa hpdm1z ko.. may katanungan lang po ako

  • Linux is FREE.
  • Actually mas maganda na alam mo rin ang commands.. babalik at babalik ka rin sa command line/shell kahit may mga control panels na naka install..

    Some of the free distro na commonly used as server are centos and ubuntu.

  • Quick question I just want to confirm based on what I've read. Is it true that in dual boot, it's better to install Windows XP first then Linux second?
  • @thewatchdog yes xp or any win os muna bago Linux
  • @hajji

    Thanks for the reply.

    @all

    Any of you guys who are programmers/software engineers using Linux as your primary OS for software/web development? If yes, may I know:

    1. the specs of your production/workstation machine
    2. what distro are you using
    3. what platform/programming language are you into
  • @thewatchdog
    I work in a SoftDev I don't do development work but support is my line

    hardware specs for Java+Tomcat+IntelliJ or Eclipse

    Core i5 Processor Quad core atleast 2.5Ghz speed / Intel Xeon much better
    *vt-d/vt-x enabled if you plan running VM guest to your machine
    minimum 8GB RAM/ 16GB recommended plan to run multiple instances of VM or Tomcat
    500GB disk space/ 1TB recommended
    a decent graphics card if you need, for Image rendering or Game development/ Super animated sites :D
    Internet connection

    Fedora/CentOS mine is Fedora and CentOS 6.5 for my Spacewalk provisioning
    Ubuntu/Debian
    Java/Tomcat/JBoss
    *PHP an average PC will do.

    All of my servers are running CentOS 6 + Oracle JDK + Tomcat
    HP Blade Xeon 2GHz+ min 16GB RAM
    HP DL Xeon 2GHz+ min 16GB RAM

    Some of Dev are using iMac 21" and 27" MacOSX 10+

    Hope this may help you

    a. tama po ba na free yung linux at ubuntu na os sa site? free download mga nakikita ko..

    Tama po pwede nyo download sa http://www.ubuntu.com/

    b. nag google ako and eto mga nakita ko na users na mga ginagamit nila, ubuntu 14.04.1, bodhi at linuxmint.. anu po mas ok at pag kakaiba nila?

    Ang Ubuntu ang pure distro ng Ubuntu based distro ang Mint po ay parang MOD version nya

    c.32 or 64bits?
    Halos naman ng Proc ngayon ay 64Bit, common application nito kung meron kang RAM nag 4GB and Up mag 64bit ka na OS para ma detect sya ng tama, meron pang ibang dahilan sa Apps
    d.anu po ba mga ways para ma install to? via usb flash or yung mag burn ka sa dvd?
    easiest ay i download mo ISO image then burn sa DVD, USB need some work or use some tools to create USB boot drive
    3. may external drive ako with movies, ma play pa din kaya?
    sa Ubuntu after install need mo download muna yung mga codecs, video,audio supports, ang Mint merong version na Multimedia enabled na.

    kung meron po kayu link na pwede mabasa para sa mga begginers sana pa post din po..maraming salamat po
    Ubuntu forums maraming discussion or download ka ng mga PDF about ubuntu

    lastly.. tama ba na mas ok yung ubuntu at wala kasi masyado commands?
    Lahat po ng Linux e.g Ubuntu/RedHat/Fedora/Suse/Oracle/Debian or Unix any variant may command line po, sa likod ng mga fancy GUI ay command parin ang nag papatakbo ng mga programs, another reason kung bakit need ang command line, mas mabilis mag edit ng config mag restart ng services etc. sa command line

    Good Luck sa journey mo sa Linux
  • Tanong ko lang po, namimili po ba ng cpu at gpu ang linux? kasi yung netbook ko na sony vaio amd e350 na install naman ng maayos yung ubuntu at mint, kaso sa linux mint ang sabi ay without video hardware accelarator.. tas nag try naman ako ng ibang os like fedora,kubuntu, suse etc tas nag load naman sila at pagclick ng install at black screen with 0,1,a,.. parang nag error na.. tas dun naman sa atom netbbok walang problema yung linux mint..
  • ^ driver issues, just install the proper drivers (if it's supported), if it's not, SOL
  • @macadamiadark
    this will help you how to enable hardware accelerator

    Go to System Settings ->Administration ->Device Drivers. If there are any additional drivers available for your system, it should be listed here.

    btw: Im a Mint 17 user ATI R250
