CollegeLinux 2.5, codenamed “Obi Wan”, is an easy to use Linux distribution based on Slackware.
Obiwan comes ready for php development and is the only linux distribution so far to do this. apache/php/mysql/sqlite/phpmyadmin/sqlitemanger/webmin come preinstalled, with a one-step configuration via our own tool, called Server Robot.
Not content with just providing the server side, the distro also comes with Kdevelop, an IDE that works natively with PHP in a fully functional desktop environment.
After a CollegeLinux installation everything you need for developing in PHP is setup for you: your server will be up and running and you can easily change any of the settings via webmin, a user-friendly graphical control panel.
