Both OS's will cluster quite easily. However mixing them may give you
some issues. In Fedora Core 4 the default version of gcc is 4.0.0.
However in Fedora Core 3 it is gcc-3.4.2 (I think). The two are NOT
binary compatible regardless of what some people say.
Personally I like Core 4 much better than Core 3. However it sounds
like your application (Gaussian) only works right with Core 3. I
suggest going with Core 3.
With that said. I have seen a few stability issues with Core 3. I
have a small cluster running Core 4 machines and they all have an
uptime of about 3 months...would be longer but the power grid here in
Albany NY is quite pathetic.
Well that certainly wasn't a Gaussian specific answer but I hope there
was some useful information any how.
