Fedora vs. Centos

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I read a lot a discussion, but I didn't found a good answer for my doubt. 
 

In the past I used CentOS (but a lot of setting and "to do") for a shot time and Kubuntu, but I want pass to rpm distro, for that reason I started to evaluate Fedora respect CentOS. 

  • Someone use it? (Fedora)
  • what do you think?


thanks for your help and have a nice day

Fedora will have more modern features. CentOS will have many years of support and more stable but older features. If you don't want to be updating your operating system every six months then use CentOS. If you don't mind the tinkering every six months and want the latest features then use Fedora.

Why does RPM matter? Autodesk software? If that's the case then CentOS 7 will be your only option for now. Maya 2020 which just came out doesn't support CentOS 8 and they dropped support for Fedora entirely. I'm amazed that people still use Maya.

Ok, Thanks.

No Autodesk, the reason is DaVinci. I read it works on rpm and not on deb (or I'm wrong?).

Essentially I want use Blender, Houdini and DaVinci and I'm looking for a good distro for that.

Correct. DaVinci Resolve and Fusion only support CentOS and RHEL as per their configuration guide.

Ok, thanks... so no Fedora?
in the meantime I found some one install DaVinci on deb distro.

So if it's work I can moved also on DEB distro like mint or kubuntu?

thanks

I (and others I know) have Resolve working fine on Mint (Ubuntu based). I use Houdini on a daily basis too.

To install Resolve on Ubuntu you have to

- first: adapt the rpm to .deb by using the alien utility. It's an automatic process, don´t be afraid of it.

- second: launch the installer process which will finish without issues. But launching the app won´t work or will get stuck when loading. I remember you have to create a dynamic link for Resolve to find the libraries in the expected location, which differs between Debian and RedHat based distributions.

I was foolish enough not to write down the steps I followed, but it was not specially hard and all is documented in the Davinci forums. I mean, I'm not in any way a Linux specialist and managed to get it running in a very short time, totally doable.

Good luck if you try!

I bought another SSD and try Fedora and find good for now, but I think to test also a deb based soon.
