System requirements for VDT 1.3.5

Operating Systems

VDT 1.3.5 runs on RedHat 7.x, RedHat 9.0, RedHat Enterprise Linux 3, Fedora Core 3 and Debian Linux 3.1 (sarge). It may work on other Linux releases but we do not guarantee it.

Specifically, we have received many reports that the VDT does not completely install or work on Scientific Linux and ROCKS. We are working to address this and hope to have full support for these operating systems in the next VDT release.

Some components of the VDT may work on the x86-64 architecture, but many do not. We are working on adding 64 bit support to a future version. For now it should not be expected to work.

We try to make all software in the VDT work on all of our supported platforms. In the long run we succeed, but there are sometimes problems with newer packages. See our list of known problems

Disk space

VDT 1.3.5 takes different amounts of space depending on the subset of the VDT you install. The complete VDT requires 980MB.
