73                                   open-ils-general/2007-July/000316.html|OPEN-ILS-GENERAL]:
74                                 On 8/11/07, lan ye &lt;lye at> wrote:
75                                 > We've been researching the Evergreen Open Source Library system, and would

78                                 > an ordinary PC. Could you send some information to us?
80                                 For system requirements, it depends on how extensive you want your tests to
81                                 be. Evergreen and all of the pieces it depends on (PostgreSQL, Apache, Ejabberd) run
82                                 happily in a VMWare image allocated 512MB of RAM on my laptop with just the Project
83                                 Gutenberg e-books loaded, and that's enough to evaluate the OPAC interface / try out the
84                                 staff client / make some local changes and generally experiment. But I'm not going to
85                                 load one million bib records into that system and expect it to perform. So, probably any
86                                 hardware you have lying around would be adequate for a small test server.
88                                 > It looks like Evergreen has been successfully installed on two Linux

90                                 > what's already in place at other libraries? Are there any differences /
91                                 > Advantages in functionality between Gentoo and Ubuntu?
93                                 As John said, GPLS is running on Debian, and that's the only Evergreen system that is in
94                                 production at the moment. However, the documentation for installing on Debian is a bit
95                                 scattered right now. The developers themselves used Gentoo originally, and that's what
96                                 I'm using at the moment &amp; have documented in the wiki; the install process on Ubuntu
97                                 is very thoroughly documented and Ubuntu is reasonably close to Debian.  See
98                        for the list of install
99                                 instructions for various distributions.
101                                 As for advantages / disadvantages of particular distributions, that's a religious war
102                                 that I don't want to step into... We'll try to help you out no matter what distribution
103                                 you choose; just please choose a current release :)

110                                   pipermail/open-ils-general/2007-July/000317.html|thread]:
112                                 We are running a test Ubuntu server on a ~1ghz Celeron PC with 512mb RAM.  It seems to
113                                 be ok handling the Gutenberg samples, and our collection of about 8000 records. We did
114                                 have serious problems using anything less than 512mb RAM. Also, I tried Evergreen on a
115                                 K6 II 350, but it wasn't pretty.

125                         <para>This sections describes examples of some working Evergreen system architectures, including both server-side software and Staff Client software.</para>
126                         <para>A bare-minimum system requires only a single Evergreen Server and a single Evergreen Staff Client, both residing on a single server machine. In fact, that is a reasonable architecture for simple experiments or as a proof of concept in a conference-room pilot. But typical real-world systems will probably consist of at least one or two Evergreen Servers plus multiple Staff Clients.</para>
127                         <para>Another simple system may require only that you install one or more instances of the Staff Client software. For instance, if your consortium already provides the Evergreen server software or if you are using the hosted version provided by Equinox, you do not need to install the Evergreen server-side software at all; you need only the Staff Client.</para>
