  Scientific Linux 7 Alpha

Make Huge returns on Investments & Make dreams come true!

The Future is Binary  – Pat Riehecky has announced the availability of an early alpha release of ScientificLinux 7, a distribution compiled from the source code for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7: “Fermilab’s intention is to continue the development and support of Scientific Linux and refine its focus as an operating system for scientific computing. Today we are announcing an alpha release of Scientific Linux 7. We continue to develop a stable process for generating and distributing Scientific Linux, with the intent that Scientific Linux remains the same high quality operating system the community has come to expect. This alpha does not include many historic SL addons. We would like to open discussion on which specific packages and utilities should be added to SL 7.” Read the release announcement and release notes for further information. Interested alpha testers can download either the full 6.2 GB ISO image (which can be transferred to a USB storage device) or the small “netinst” image (SHA256): SL-7-x86_64-DVD.iso(6,377MB), SL-7-x86_64-netinst.iso (392MB).

Scientific Linux is a recompiled Red Hat Enterprise Linux, co-developed by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Although it aims to be fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, it also provides additional packages not found in the upstream product; the most notable among these are various file systems, including Cluster Suite and Global File System (GFS), FUSE, OpenAFS, Squashfs and Unionfs, wireless networking support with Intel wireless firmware, MadWiFi and NDISwrapper, Sun Java and Java Development Kit (JDK), the lightweight IceWM window manager, R – a language and environment for statistical computing, and the Alpine email client.
