to balance durability of the installation with safety. That is to
say, I don't want to invest time in versions that will soon be out of
date, but I don't want too many arrows in my back from pursuing the
latest alpha code.
So, for a balance of long-life to the system and a reasonable
expectation of getting running in a month or so ...
What Unix distribution? I gather that much of the development is on
Linux, but have heard lots of problems working with RedHat 7. (I also
have had many problems with the latest RPMs not installable on my 6.2
and 6.2 systems.) I am also comfortable with OpenBSD, but have never
been able to get FreeBSD to install.
Should I go with OpenACS 4.x? I despise (and fear) major updates, so
would rather go with 4 and accept some limits short term rather than
work with 3 and suffer great envy as I hear others discussing the
advantages of 4!
I know it's only been out for a couple of days, but what about
PostgreSQL 7.1? Earlier visits here indicated that there were great
advantages for 7.1 over 7.03, particularly with OpenACS 4.
Finally, for getting a few small sites put together, will a K6-500 w/
128 MB be a reasonable machine, or do I need to step up a bit?
