I’m going to use an old desktop to host a Pleroma instance- which flavour of Linux should I use? I don’t mind CLI only.
@alan Although Debian's tool "whohas" wasn't able to download open BSD or Fedora 20 or 21 indexes it did find the latest version of Pleroma in Gentoo (2.3.0) (they also have 2.2.2 and 1.0.2). Arch has a a bit out of date version (2.1.2).
So I looked up who has it packaged and arch or gentoo looked promising. My main arch experience is they have an excellent documentation wiki.
Arch might be a good place to look other than the comment about their erlang update being problematic
@kinetix @alan it was this app
And I think it just downloads package indexes for the distros and searches. It may download extended repositories as well.
This is a private instance for family and friends only.
