GG-Client on linux (host on windows) 6 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0
I'm trying to re-use some old pc's with linux on them and give them the GG-Client for all our enterprise applications.
But after a few try-outs i do not get a stable client experience. I tried fedora 15 gnome 2, pclinuxos lxde , kde and gnome.
they all encounter the same problem :
* if you move around the program window : it blocks completely
* if you open applications and switch between them : it blocks completely
* if you try to change the size of the program window : it dissapears.

What is a supported platform, without having to run the Enterprise Server versions (sles or redhat) since we are talking about clients!! (even low resource clients ....)

I'm running go-global 4.0.1.10097

Officially, you can use Red Hat 4 & 5 and SUSE 10 desktop editions. For the client, only a a 32-bit client is provided so you may need additional dependencies when installing on a 64-bit OS. Installing the client via a meta-packager such as yum will automatically fetch and install these dependencies for you.

Unofficially, the GO-Global Linux Client is also known to run well on the following Linux distributions: Red Hat Linux 7.3, 8, and 9; Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 3; Mandrakelinux 10; Xandros Desktop 2; and Turbolinux Desktop 10.

If i'm not wrong those seem like quite old versions of the systems. I tried centos 6, which works correctly but moving windows around is very slow. I didn't try a version 5 (cfr read had 5....).


The reason i'm looking at up-to-date distributions is that our co-workers will get the devices (i should have mentioned laptops instead of pc's... mea culpa) with them at home and they can use them for private and use the go-global environment for work-related.
We would opt for linux because of the minimal risk i have here with virusses and stuff. I would opt for an up to date distribution because of the browser-flash environment (make sure they can browse the internet without problems).

I'll post something back if i find the correct linux distro for that....

Since fedora is unable to install on old pc's (you need 640Mb ram minimum) i didn't bother to test it. Mandriva 2010.2 (the 2011 is out since yesterday but i didn't test that one yet) and the mandriva based distro Mageia are working correctly.
Since mandriva 2011 is a KDE only distro (or you have to uninstall kde and install gnome/xfce) and mageia is a gnome centric distro i will continue with the mageia setup. It gives my users a comprehensive system which they can easely use for default tasks (mail, internet, foto managent, music, type in some docs,...) and they can use it with Graphon for business tasks. Since it is rpm based, my juniper SA SSLVPN system works as well without me having to set it up.

There is still a small problem with the keyboard.... The up-down-left-right arrows don't work (neither in centos) and the / on the numeric keys doesn't work neither. Enter on the numeric keys works in exell but not in word....
It could be that this is due to my vmplayer setup. I'll try a real laptop next.
