Can i use Fedora for live server?

Hi

So far, I am using centos on my server.
Can i use fedora for live server?

If so, which version can i use?
What is the version of imagemagick in fedora yum repository?

Re: Can i use Fedora for live server?

Using Fedora for a server is NOT SMART. fedora changes revs every 6 months. You really don't want to re-install and revision test all of your services every 6 month. If you want to play with Fedora service as a learning experience that's fine. FWIW I have in the past used Fedora for my little soho services (mail, file sharing, VPN) and eventually it's an old unsupported distro or else I have to spend a couple days every 6 months to patch things and learn the new interfaces.

Recently I've started using Scientific Linux (similar to centos) inside a KVM virtualization on top of F16. This way I get the stablility of RHEL/Centos/SciLinux and I can migrate the KVMs as needed. If my server hardware breaks I can run the same KVM image on another system instantly. Upgrading the Fedora underneath is a much smaller problem.

In F16 it's ImageMagick-6.7.0.10-4.fc16

I don't know how good an idea it is to have fedora repos enabled in CentOS - or are you referring to EPEL?

In the remi repository, the latest version is ImageMagick 6.6.5.10. Remi page for imagemagick

Yes, I wanted to mention EPEL.

It depends on the kind of server you got in mind.
Fedora gets a lot of updates and here and there things will brake.
Most of the time that is graphical stuff like GPU drivers or Gnome related so if you want a text based server it shouldn't be a problem.
It probably isn't the best choice for an install to set and forget although I have seen Fedora production servers that aren't supported by patches anymore which were still going strong.

There is a package call "fedpgk" that is in EPEL that can help you build any fedorapackage from any version for a RHEL and its clones.
