System requirements for VDT 1.3.7

Operating Systems

VDT 1.3.7 is supported on: It may work on other Linux releases but we do not guarantee it.

The VDT only supports the x86 processor family. VDT 1.3.7 will not install on the x86-64 or ia64 processors. x86-64 support will be added soon.

The VDT does not support SELinux though some of our supported platforms (Fedora Core 4) come with SELinux enabled by default. Be sure to disable SELinux in /etc/sysconfig/selinux before installing the VDT.

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. Additionally, some software packages are starting to drop support for RedHat 7. See our list of known problems and contents list for more information.

Disk space

VDT 1.3.7 takes different amounts of space depending on the subset of the VDT you install. The complete VDT requires at least 1.5GB.
