Re: RedHat or Debian amd64

Well Ubuntu is based on Debian, so there is at least a good chance a
package for ubuntu will work on Debian.

Not on wheezy, because of glibc versions, perhaps on testing. I could install amd64 testing on the desktop (not on servers), which could also solve the problem of grub on both disks of raid0. Does the new installer ask for that option, install grub on both disks? That was not the case some time ago and getting grub on both disks was something that defeated me.

I made it know to the maintainers at the center that I was used to stable software for scientific use, and to originals, not derivatives. But these are my personal views, clearly not much shared.
