Scientific Linux is a free enterprise Linux distribution that is derived from sources of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) distribution. It is sponsored and developed by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory with major contributions of CERN, ETH Zürich and DESY.

With its main goal to provide a world class environment for scientific computing it focusses on the needs of universities, major research institutions, experimental facilities, scientists, technologists and researchers.

Scientific Linux has an install base in experiments on all seven continents and the International Space Station.

Installation

See Installing Lazarus on Linux

Although Lazarus and Free Pascal are not included in the standard distribution they can be easily installed from packages provided by the Lazarus team. This requires only the following few steps:

  • Download current RPM packages for your processor type (32 or 64 bit)
    • fpc for Free Pascal (required for all configurations)
    • fpc-src for Free Pascal sources (required for code completion)
    • lazarus for the Lazarus IDE
  • Install the packages by double clicking (and confirm download of missing required packages). On systems, where neither the Application Installer nor the GNOME Package Manager are installed by default (e.g. live installations or small systems installed from CD), you should instead use the command line tool yum, which is available on all current RPM-based Linux distributions.
