If you have time, could you list the applications you use and what area they are used for? (if not obvious from the name )

Ok, here is the list it should be all there but might not be 100% - the list is in a random come to mind order! Its also only correct for the 6.0 beta as the older versions didn't use ldap etc..:
- web management - written by us, from scratch to admin/manage day to day tasks and the functions of the rest of the software found below. Uses cgi and bash.
- Samba - Used for domain control and file access for windows and linux
- Cups - Printing for clients
- Apache - Web server - two versions running, one for ports 80/433 and another for ports 2001/3001
- mysql - for database based apps
- php - for php based apps
- Shorewall - firewall for each server
- Kixtart - Windows client drive mappings and permissions
- Pam_Mount - Linux client drive mappings
- ldap - user and group information for servers and linux clients( pre version 6 this was done via ypserv and ypbind), user and group info.
- Squid and Dansguardian - Proxy and Filtering system
- dnsmasq - internal dns server for the network
- dhcp - dhcp server
- various apps (moodle, website baker, egroupware, squirrelmail, joomla, phpnuke etc)
- postfix - mail transport agent
- clamav and spamassisin - for virus and spam scanning
- mailscanner - monitors/controls the mail stuff
- ssh server - so all the other servers can be controled by the main one
- mon - network monitoring
and lastly over 1000 config files that we wrote to hold the thing together!
Thats it, should probably put this one in the karoshi documentation somewhere!

"in place swap" NFS Server or in-situ swap, not "NFS swap" server.

I meant Linux apps used by the pupils.

Since you're looking at primary schools:
Firefox (with flash) -> This gives you 95% of resources used.

Here is the installed packages on the main computers. I am working my way though to create one that is just the packages we use, but this is what is installed, and most of the packages available though the menu are used. Blender at the moment is in favour with the year 7's they are making amazing movies with it.
21st May 2008, 03:19 PM #67
ok here is the finished list.
In ICT they tend to use OpenOffice, Nvu, Blender, Firefox, Alice, Scratch. Music use Rosegarden, Hydrogen et al, Media Studies use Celtx, WinFF and a few others, history at the moment are using audacity to create revision podcasts. Most people just use Internet and Office.
We have all the plugins installed, Flash, Java, WinCodec, etc etc

BTW - what do you use to drive IWBs?

We use the SmartBoard software, you can download it from their website and it works native on Linux. We don't have any promeathens so I can't speak if they have equivalents or not. The software is identical to the windows one, including the notepad items etc, so far no staff have noticed the difference.

Is it possible to add my own primary groups?
22nd May 2008, 01:50 PM #71
Not at the moment, but you are the second person to ask that in the last few days so we are looking into making that change. I can pm you a way of creating an extra primary group. What did you want the primary group for?
23rd May 2008, 06:32 PM #72
I wanted to create my student year groups and staff groups.
Do the primary groups control what access users get?
2nd June 2008, 02:38 PM #73
The primary groups for staff and students are created by default I think up to 2050. The students are place in groups via yearof entry, so yr2006(yr9), yr2007(yr8), yr2008(yr7) the staff are placed in either itadmin(administrator access on Windows/Linux), tech, staff, studentstaff. You also have exams and guests groups. All lockdowns are performed per user group.
When creating a user you will be asked what group you wish to place them into, this will then determine profile, etc and will also create them a login, email account, moodle account, and internet access.
Hope this helps.
