ubuntu server


Recommended Posts

Leaving CentOS and the Alma branch of it for a Linux server. CentOS ain't CentOS anymore and Alma was quite the disappointment.

Was going to use straight Debian but decided on using Ubuntu instead.


1st impressions:

  • surprised that booting takes quite a bit longer than the CentOS
  • using a gui is a pain in Ubuntu as well
  • iptables! 


have not gotten to installing interesting services yet, right now trying to get more comfortable with a setup that i can use.

that   docker  comes "preinstalled" is quite interesting.

Rocky is what CentOS users moved to once RedHat acquired them and change the development model.



Rocky Linux is an open-source enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux®. It is under intensive development by the community.




I have a buddy that migrated his company's servers from CentOS to Rocky and he said it was pretty painless as a drop in replacement.

so, still feeling my way around this strange new world


How do I see (and manage) the network ip addresses from the gui? I'd really like to be able to see ip address from taskbar.

thought it would be under Settings->Network, but nope image.png.4b28b78eefd197998c7469e607d60036.png


and indicator-ip repository is evidently not setup according to the rules and apt will not use it.

Wish I could be of some assistance to you, but waaaay too long since I played with Ubuntu in any serious fashion. :(
