We have selenium on windows machine.
But, since we can' share that between team members, we are trying to port everything to linux box.
My questions are
#1 can we use selenium with any flavor of unix? can we use it even if we don't have gui mode?
#2 if it can't be installed on linux, how do you share the files?

Mark - SO, if Selenium requires GUI, I may need a Linux flavor with GUI. IS that right?

I've never seen where anyone was able to run Selenium without a GUI. Not that I was paying attention. The way I understand it works, and the way I use it, is only with a GUI. I've never done the research to prove that though.
I'd like my scripts to run on a build server right along with the unit tests which I've heard some people have done. What I don't know is if some kind of login session was created so it could run. I'm just about to the point where I need that answer myself.
BTW: I don't think you need to jump on the Linux thing right away. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.) I don't see a need for it in what you say you are trying to achieve. You could get away with simply putting the scripts on a network drive and work on and run them from there. That's one of many solutions I see.
BTW2: I suggest you get some version control software to put your scripts in. There are bunches of reasons to do that along with allowing people to work locally but still sharing the scripts.
Maybe you should do some research and experimentation on how to use Selenium in a group. Switching OS's seems drastic to me.
BTW3: If you really want to work without a GUI and don't care about testing at the browser level there are several tools that work at the HTTP layer.
BTW4: I don't know why I'm using so many BTW's.
If you're a slave to your free associations, does it automatically become something else?
