The PCQ Linux 2006 writeup in the mag was quite impressive so I tried it
out. First of all, the CD media is terrible, it has many file errors.
First time, in CD1 itself it had some file errors. On inserting CD2, it
simply went into CLI and said the system was ready to reboot. Next time
it was another 'dhakka maro' session of opening and closing the cd (Sony
but it finally installed.
It is supposed to be FC4 packages based but it is a disgrace to the
existing FC4. It could not go beyond 800x600 resolution. It did not
detect the sound devices (Both these things worked fine in FC4). The
Firefox setup in Kde showed weird behavior. It would not allow me to
check/uncheck boxes and as I moved my mouse over it the tick marks would
randomly appear and disappear. Finally I just chucked it. After almost a
year of FC4 and Ubuntu 5.10, if PCQ comes up with such crap, it will
only sabotage the FOSS cause.
I won't be surprised if M$ uses these CDs to show people how good Windows
is, over Linux.
Yahoo! Photos NEW, now offering a quality print service from just 8p a photo http://uk.photos.yahoo.com
Trying my hand at linux after burning my fingers with mandrake ages ago. got
hold of an old Live CD of Debian with Gnome 2.4 and find the desktop
architecture really cool.
Here are a few questions I need answered:
1.Will someone educate me on the new Debian 4 release? What are the system
2.ToI of yesterday has the piece on Knoppix having a desktop even better
than Windows Vista. Can it be installed or it exists only on a Live CD
Tried the new MSN Messenger? Its cool! Download now.
Although the original post in the LIH list mentions Mumbai ILUG, I have
not seen it here yet.
I am forwarding it here since I believe we will be seeing a lot more of
this kind of crap from the GoI e-Governance portals. Portals, paid for
by the tax payers money, supporting only closed proprietary software.

The new Windows Vista is supposed to be using a new file system and its
also encrypted, (EFS). So does this signal the end of mounting Windows
partitions in Linux?

Dear Linux hackers,
As you may be aware, we, the Computer Science
Linux User's Group, are attempting to make our own
re-branded distribution of Linux based on Fedora Core
This distribution is aimed at having a customised
set of packages that we need in our BCS/MCS/BE/ME/MCA/Diploma
syllabus so that one set of three or four CDs can be
moved around without carring peripheral CDs for Java,
plugins, multimedia, etc.
Moreover, we were mailed regularly by people that
they had trouble setting up Postgres, PHP, tomcat,
Perl, JDBC, etc. during their time of critical needs.
It is definately not fair to expect people to learn
how to configure these things at the last moment when
practicals are declared within a week.
Even if someone is capable of configuring these,
it is likely that they may forget at the last moment
and also likely that people wont want to spend time
configuring stuff on the day previous to the exam at
the cost of studying.
For this purpose, we also aim to provide
pre-configured RPMs and configuration scripts that can
achieve this task within a few minutes. In fact,
CSLinux version 1 released last year allowed even
first year students to set up many things that TYs
were having trouble with.
This version will be aimed at pushing this
simplicity and ease-of-use to the next level. With
GUIs, web-based tools for remote management of nodes
in labs, configuration replication scripts for
applying common settings to multiple laboratory nodes,
user management scripts for handling the thousads of
users on college servers, etc.
For more information on what's been going on in
regard to CSLinux, you are encouraged to join the
and go through the archives
. We have also started a Wiki
for simplifying this effort and the
link to it can be found in he CSLUG archives.
We request your participation, support and
encouragement in this effort. Please do spread the
We need all sorts of people to help us out. We
need graphics designers to design the themes, logos,
images, wallpapers, bootscreens, etc. for CSLinux. We
require people to modify the installer Anaconda. We
need people to modify RPM files and change the default
configuration in them. We need people to make and
build binary RPMs out of source tarballs for packages
whose RPMs that may not already be available or when
i686 RPMs may not be available.
We also need developers to develop the
configuration scripts, the small tools that we will
provide with CSLinux and changing initscripts.
Finally and most importantly, we also require the
BCS/MCS/BE/ME/MCA/Diploma community to contribute their academic
projects to be put up on CSLinux. This is to encourage
students to make professional-grade real-life
applicable projects by providing them a large exposure
within the peer community.
Also, we need people to search for sponsors. For
example, we may approach coaching classes to sponsor
the project in return for putting up their ads/banners
on our default wallpaper, the GNOME/KDE splash
screens, the default gdm login logo, and the CD covers
and the prints on the CD themselves.
Absolutely any help will be appreciated a lot. We
would like CSLinux to become a living example of an
open source project that is self-sustaining, started
off by students on their own, and a successful
business model within Pune (although it will be
If you feel that you have completed any
assignment from BCS/MCS/BE/ME/MCA/Diploma to perfection and would like
the community to see it, then we will also be
including such assignments for reference on the
distribution. This is a very highly-demanded feature
Your contribution on recommendations to what
tools, packages and documents that should be included
in CSL would be highly appreciated.
We thank you for all your support in this
