Hey there,

I currently conduct a survey to figure out what are the most commonly used Linux distributions for hosting Soldat servers among the Soldat community. This survey helps me to ensure that  SGAS runs on as many platforms as possible. So if you want your server(s) to be SGAS-compatible I'd appreciate if you post as many of the following specification as possible:

Distribution:
Version/Release:
GCC Version:

Executing "cat /etc/*-release" in your shell prompt will tell you the distribution and the version of the release. You can find out your GCC version by entering "gcc -v" in your shell of your choice.

That only works on Centos, Fedora, and redhat as they either have /etc/redhat-release or /etc/fedora-release or both. For other distros you need to use other methods, but if they have the lsb packages installed you can just do `lsb_release -a `

If you happen to be a customer of a Soldat server provider and you don't have access to these system details, you may query your server provider for the specifications mentioned above.

I will start with my server, so you have a reference to how your report may look like.

Distribution: Ubuntu
Version/Release: 10.04
GCC Version: 4.4.3

Thanks for your support!

Markus

I just use debian.

But you can very easily emulate other distributions using chroot'ing into local instances of them.

But anyway, as per topic:

Code: [Select]
root@chronic:~# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.5 (squeeze)
Release:        6.0.5
Codename:       squeeze
root@chronic:~# gcc -v
gcc version 4.4.5 (Debian 4.4.5-8)

Additionally,
Executing "cat /etc/*-release" in your shell prompt will tell you the distribution and the version of the release. You can find out your GCC version by entering "gcc -v" in your shell of your choice.

That only works on Centos, Fedora, and redhat as they either have /etc/redhat-release or /etc/fedora-release or both. For other distros you need to use other methods, but if they have the lsb packages installed you can just do `lsb_release -a `

The soldatserver actually kind of runs on FreeBSD when you have Linux compatibility turned on. Additionally, Microsoft server licenses are significantly more than $300, and you don't owe Novell anything if you use distros other than their commercial ones. That said, you're deliberately talking out of your ass and so I'm gonna warn you.

Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Thanks for the hint. I have added it to the first post.
