Tip of the Trade: Ubuntu's Prefab Server Stacks

Filed under
Ubuntu

While the Linux and Unix universes have always provided a wealth of high-quality, powerful servers for all occasions, putting all the pieces together has traditionally been a task for the seriously geeky. For example, assembling a mail server means collecting separate SMTP, POP3, and IMAP servers and knitting them together. Application servers and dynamic Web sites are even more challenging: Apache, Lighttpd, Perl, PHP, Python, Tomcat, JBoss, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and so forth — just figuring out the bits is half the battle.

Ubuntu entered the pre-fab server stack parade back in version 6.06 (Dapper Drake), and has been refining it with every release. With the latest release, 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), the installer offers the option of installing the following servers along with it:

Fedora: The Latest

  • Korora 22 Flash Update
    As we announced when Korora 22 was released, Adobe Flash is no longer included by default.
  • Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom
    I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be commonly used these days that we didn’t have packaged. So I packaged them up, and put them in a new repository!
  • CUDA 7.0 enabled programs for Fedora 22
    I’ve udpated the CUDA version in the Fedora 22 Nvidia repository, it now contains CUDA 7.0.28 along with the cuFFT 7.0.35 patch. Note that from this version, CUDA is x86_64 bit compatible only, so there are no more i386 packages. There is still the cudart library available for 32 bit, but I don’t think it’s worth packaging.
  • Secure Boot — Fedora, RHEL, and Shim Upstream Maintenance: Government Involvement or Lack Thereof
    Note that there are parts of this chain I’m not a part of, and obviously linux distributions I’m not involved in that support Secure Boot. I encourage other maintainers to offer similar statements for their respective involvement.
  • Remi repository is changing
    The "remi" repository exists for > 10 years, it have changed a lot, and some recent changes worth to be explained.
