eFa V5 - Preferred Distro

Post by vimtoenergydrinker »

Hi All,

Firstly thanks for releasing a new version we will be looking to move to this when current CentOS 7 reaches EoL.

I was wondering if anyone had any preferred Linux distros for this. We're between using Rocky and CentOS Stream but wondered what the community was recommending.

You can use rocky linux 9.4 or almalinux 9.4, the reason I don't use centos stream cause it provides a rolling preview of RHEL updates and features before release and changes much faster will occur (Some says that it is not for production server)

Recently, i fresh installed rocky 9.4 with a new eFa Released 5.0.0-7, and it's working fine.

Rocky Linux 9.x here, not a fan of CentOS Stream due to the rolling release cycle that is ahead of stable releases.

Alma is probably more used and seems to have a better community behind it and is more 'independent' as rocky is created by the same guy who created CentOS, Alma is non-profit, rocky is for-profit.

Either is fine I currently use rocky where I need to run redhat based systems, but thats just out of convenience to have everything the same.
If starting from scratch I would probably switch to Alma due to their non-profit organization.
Version eFa 5.x now available!
