Re: [Linux-cluster] GFS on fedora

Source tree is available at:

There are at least 4 major branches that are being maintained - roughly equivalent to RHEL 3, 4, 5 and devel

Hello again , Gordan.

I understand what you explained.
But, actually, I don't want to run it on a production environment.
It is mainly for testing purposes, it's part of a work for university.

And , could you please tell me where can I download the source tree ?
I will need to read the code.

Thanks you for your help and thoughful considerations.

All The Best,

        /By this you mean that it is not a good idea to install it on
        FC? Is GFS somewhat RH oriented?

    FC is effectively RedHat alpha. There is no structural or
    organizational difference between them. The differences are in
    stability and the amount of testing that goes into things.

    GFS (and RedHat Cluster Services which GFS is a part of) will run on
    any distribution, of course - it's just that you may have to build
    the correct stable packages from source, which seems pointless when
    you can have something that just works already. It's down to
    personal preference.

        I chose FC because I am not familiar with rh and I've read
        somewhere that gfs would work on fc

    It'll work, but running FC in a production environment is asking for
    trouble. You might as well run it on Gentoo and custom compile
    everything from bleeding edge sources, but it isn't going to help
    you achieve a stable system that has been tested by someone else
    other than just you.
