Linux distribution/architecture options

Hi,

I’m getting a new server to run a rails app and was asked whether I
wanted a
64 bit or 32 bit machine. It will be running Fedora Core 3.

Needless to say I’m thinking 64 bit, but was concerned there might be
stability issues with Fedora and Rails on one or the other (or both?).
Any
thoughts or relevant experiences?

I’d recommend at least getting the latest Fedora.

AMD64 works fine for us. Ruby doesn’t seem any less happy on it. I
can’t
speak to the distro, but if it’s unstable on amd64 I’d be surprised (and
recommend that you find another distro; getting amd64 stable shouldn’t
be a
tough job these days).

I have had problems getting Mongrel to work with Fedora Core 4.

However, it seems that FCGI could be the way in that case.
