[p4] Perforce on Linux 7.1

Hmm. I assume you refer to RedHat 7.1, as that seems to be the standard
by which Linux is judged corporately. Redhat 7.0 was twitchy to install,
but otherwise okay. We currently run p4d on a SuSE Linux 7.1 Pro
distribution file server. The machine itself is a Celeron 500 with 256MB
of RAM and ATA/100 IDE disks. (No RAID. (yet)) We've only been using
Perforce truly for a couple of weeks, but in testing the only issues I
ran into were my own; forgetting which user p4d was running under,
underlying file permissions, etc. As of now we've got 828 changes
processed, and so far the only complaints I've had are due to bad HOSTS
entries on client workspaces.
In fact, this machine is running our licensed p4d server and a second
instance for testing Perforce-DevTrack integration. (The second instance
is unlicensed, locked to 2 users.)Still no performance problems.
However, in any server environment, I strongly recommend NOT using the
somewhat standard X-Windows login and default environment. A server is
best when you can see command line.
