Springdale Linux

Last Update: 2019-04-11 06:22 UTC


Springdale Linux (formerly PUIAS Linux) is a complete operating system for desktops and servers, built by compiling the source packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Besides these upstream packages, the project also provides several other repositories: "Addons" which contains additional packages not included in a stock Red Hat distribution, "Computational" which carries software specific to scientific computing, and "Unsupported" which holds various experimental packages. The distribution is maintained by the Institute for Advanced Study and Princeton University in the USA.

It is a rebuild of CentOS sources and unless you use some additional repositories behaves exactly like CentOS 7.6 (the distro on DVD is 7.5 but 7.6 is already in repos). So it is hard to distinguish what is the difference but generally everything seems to be working fine.

The conclusion based on the brief look - university-based CentOS. Not much to add
