    linux project suggestions

    Feel im passing the "newbie" stage and wanting to learn more. But can't think of what else to try.

    Got my servers running DNS, hosting domains, DHCP, Squid, dante-socks, etc etc. Working great.

    But I want to get my teeth into something else now. Any suggestions?

    are you thinking personal ones or more school-based projects?

    How about a video/music server?

    At home.

    Ive already got a couple of the Netgear Eva8000 media players that stream the files off the Samaba shares on one of the boxes at home.

    If you haven't tried Linux From Scratch, and don't mind hours of compiling code, it's worth a gander. I currently working through the first book again. Last time I completed the first book and stopped. This time I want to get X compiled and installed at the very least.

    Ah yes. I have been meaning to get email working for ages now. Thanks.

    Also will look at trying to get one working as a domain controller with XP clients.

    It's not really a challenge, with zimbra
    Zimbra offers Open Source email server software and shared calendar for Linux and the Mac

    Few things I've done:

    Openbsd PF - Firewall

    Openbsd - Wireless access point

    Openbsd - OpenBGP (Router for more then 1 ISP connection)

    Note: Openbsd has apache chroot'd by default.
