I'd avoid Fedora like the plague. I used CentOS and it worked fine,
after you fought with it a bit to install Sun-Java and the nVidia
driver. Ric

Ric, does your CentOS have libpixman?

Do you think you could ask them if they've had any issues getting the SAS to work on centos? I'm having a lot of issues getting libpixman-1.so.0 to load for it.

Do you have a libpixman installed? CentOS is RPM-based, right?

http://www.cairographics.org may be of assistance here.

I've tried getting cairo. It doesn't contain the file I need. My linux expert says its because libpixman-1.so.0 was built against a different kind of linux than CentOS. If you guys have any other suggestions for getting runxremwin to start correctly I'm all ears but I'm fully willing to jump ship to Ubuntu just to make this work if I have to.

Not sure exactly which "different kind of Linux" he meant, but Ubuntu is likely your fastest path to success if you're able.

I'd go with Ubuntu... it's what the devel team uses... Ric

CentOS DOES work.

I can give you an address of my provider who would offer you a wonderland server on centOS and help to setup a WL if you need one and have the money to pay for it.

Locally I run WL on ubuntu, but guess all linux distros should work, it more depends that you know how to set up servers on your distro.

For me Ubuntu is the best choice for a WL server.
