    It's ALIVE!!!

    8) I'm posting from my Fedora Unix Station. First time I've ever installed Unix and it was soooo smoooooth.

    Thanks to Geoff for getting me interested in this.

    It's so slick looking.

    Feel free to ask for help. Most likely the first stumbing block will be hardware not working right.

    yeah, driver support in linux basically consists of a few linux geeks banging out their own drivers rather than hardware makers releasing them.

    Re: It's ALIVE!!!

    It's alright installing Linux, but what about getting it to recognise a windows server, installing software, configuring Apache, and getting Moodle to .. well.. moodle? I haven't got the 1st idea! Good job I've got 6 weeks off to start. I thought BIN BASH was the noise a dustman makes!!!!

    Re: It's ALIVE!!!

    I recommend installing Webmin for when you start playing with Apache and MySQL a bit (e.g. when you want to install Moodle).

    You'll find packages knocking about all over the place.

    Re: It's ALIVE!!!

    Funnily enough, I finished off a linux server install this morning on my old PII 450Mhz HP Netserver E60

    The bugger would get stuck after the first reboot at the:

    agpgart bit - dont like Intel Apollo 440 chipsets lol

    With a bit o help, managed to sort that out (comment a line out before rebooting hehe) and away it went

    Slackware 10.1 - custom built county version

    all setup but dunno where to go next lol

    Cheers
    Nath

    All manner of lovelies on Sourceforge. Make sure MySQL, Apache and PHP are configured then head over to:

    * IRM
    * HotOpenTickets
    * MRBS

    Did you read my mind?

    lol

    I'm setting it up for the purpose of a "helpdesk" style system - got a test version of IRM going on the county servers - looks great Hope there some good tweaks and mods for it - just to give it a 'bit extra'

    Dont think I've looked at the other two but shall do.

    The build of the iso's are configured by powys and I'm led to believe that php, mysql and apache are configured outta the box - I went thru the configuration thing they have on it, and it seems happy when booting - the services start and there's no error messages in boot up so i wonder whether its ok lol

    'X' dont work tho, probably because of the workaround I had to do to install linux (mentioned above somewhere).

    Cheers,
    Nath

    Re: It's ALIVE!!!

    can you not post the .iso on the downloads section, or is it specifically "tuned" or licenced for your LEA?

    licenced for your LEA
    Based on GPL software thus distribution is specifically allowed..

    Why would you want a Welsh Linux distro?

    Re: It's ALIVE!!!

    because if everything is hot to trot, it would save having to configure it!
