We have to rebuild our Linux workstation. As many of you know, the support for Centos7 or 8 will be going away, our IT guy suggested to use Rocky Linux for OS for the workstation. Does anyone know that Rocky Linux works for Cryosparc or/and any other EM programs (e.g., Relion, Chimera)?
We updated from CentOS8 to RockyLinux in January and are very happy with it. CryoSparc works fine, alongside Chimera(X), Relion3/4, cisTEM, CrYolo, Spring, AreTomo etc.
TFS Amira and CTFFIND4 caused some problems when transitioning CentOS7 → 8 that persist on current RockyLinux but they could be solved.
Just an FYI. The latest cryosparc installs with no problems on Oracle Enterprise Linux 8. Only gotcha I hit was that security standards require /tmp to be mounted noexec. Conda will not install with this setting so I had to disable temporarily.
