What is the easiest *nix to use with RT

Hi.

What is the easiest version *nix to use with RT. I am stuck with an IBM
Optiplex GX260 for my evaluation of RT. I have tried RH9 without much
luck. I have tried Debian Linux 3.0 r2 woody, but I can’t even get
X-windows to load; very few drivers, etc. Anything out there which
might work for me?

Thanks in advance,
Ron

Just enter

apt-get install request-tracker3

under debian/sarge.

I think, rt3 is also part of the FreeBSD ports.

Take a look at FreeBSD-4.x-STABLE.

Same here, also NetBSD on powermac G4 :-).

FreeBSD 4.x

We have an Optiplex GX1(blurf) that we have used as a test machine in
the past; I don’t remember any difficulties at all with it. Can’t swear
that X was running, since it lives in the server room – but X is
generally pretty easy to get going with FreeBSD.

This is being typed on FreeBSD on an Optiplex GX270 which configured up
very easy. We also run our RT instance on FreeBSD.

I’d recommend FreeBSD and the RT3 port.
