HP Z420 workstation

asked 2018-04-05 13:55:10 -0500

Anyone running Fedora desktop or server on a HP Z420 workstation? Did you run into any problems and if so how did you resolve them? I had a chance to get one at a great deal and plan to run Linux on it if possible and then some virtual machines. Also plan to use it as a samba server.

Just do it! What do you suspect not being supported in that machine? (HP even offers it Linux ready).

Throw in a live system on USB pen drive and test it out!

I am waiting on a video card to get here to put in the machine, it had been pulled out.

This information could go in your original question. The video card is probably the component that decides whether you will have a pleasant experience out-of-the-box, or not.

I was assuming you have this workstation with the default Nvidia quadro (which are supported well by Fedora's (freedesktop's) nouveau driver).
